The beauty of Hijama Cupping Therapy is that the results of this treatment are immediate and long-term. Whether you try dry, massage or Hijama (wet cupping), you will feel different straight away. Many patients say they feel “lighter” and experience “mental clarity.”

  • The Prophet (PBUH) said: “The best treatment is Hijama Cupping; it removes blood, lightens the back and sharpens the eyesight.” (Reference: At Tirmidhi, 3053)

The Hijama really, truly does “cleanse” the blood and clears up all blockages and stagnation in the body. It clears out the whole cardio-vascular system. This is essentially because the primary “Sunnah Points”  are at the nape of the neck and in the middle of the shoulder blades. These are the standard locations that a patient should have treated according to “Sunnah” (practices of the Holy Prophet Muhammad [PBUH]). The carotid arteries are also sunnah points and really help to reduce stress in the neck and upper shoulder;

  • Anas narrated that the Prophet (PBUH) used to have Hijama Cupping done on the veins on the side of the neck and the upper back. (Reference: At -Tirmidhi)

These are crucial points because the top sunnah point cleanses the whole head; ie brain, eyes, ears, gums, teeth and neck. The bottom sunnah point draws toxic blood from the vital organs in the torso, and also the extremeties ie; arms and legs. This action allows blood to flow freely and carry vital oxygen to the brain. This nourishes the brain and enables the nervous system, and thus, the whole body to function properly. The immune system also becomes much stronger. More white blood cells are released to deal with the small loss of blood from the wet cupping. Muscles and areas of tension are relaxed and patients feel comfortable and positive at the end of a session.

So you see, the practice of Hijama is a beautiful thing…what more could you ask for? A natural spring clean for your body! There are no extra medical costs or harmful side effects from medicines and chemicals. You will feel refreshed and active, and you will have fulfilled a sunnah. What could possibly make you feel better than that?

  • Jabir (may Allah SWT be pleased with him said) “I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) saying; ‘Verily, Hijama cupping has cure in it’”.

    Would u pls kindly point out the points i,e sides of the neck and upper back through diagram and also other points so we can understand it betterly easy to apply.

    • Thankyou for your enquiry. We are in the process of publishing a book about Hijamaology and hijama points. So you can refer to that for more detail.
      For now, the “jugular” points are the carotid arteries on either side of the neck.
      The other two sunnah points are at the nape of the neck and between the shoulder blades. Unfortunately, we do not have the diagrams available yet.

    Assalamu alaikum,
    Hi i am 22 years old, i wana knw does hijama can be perform for face skin….becoz i have acne,pimples and pimple marks……..can i get rid of these skin problem’s thorough Hijama………….i wana do hijama for my skin………is it effective for face…….or it is just for body………..pls help me out………i wana get rid of these skin problems………should i go for hijama……????

    • Aslamulaykum. Thank you for your questions. Yes, alhumdulillah, Hijama is a very effective treatment for skin conditions and pimples. These usually occurr if there is too much heat in the body, bad diet and digestive system, poor lymphatic drainage and even stress. You should consider all of these issues as they may be causing the imbalances in your body.
      Hijama will help to take out all the toxic blood and impurities in your body systems. So we do advise you to try Hijama at least once. Massage cupping and facials are also very useful to rejuvenate skin.
      But you must remember that even though hijama is the best medicine and a sunnah, it is not the actual cure itself. Allah SWT is the only healer and curer, so we should have strong faith in Allah SWT and ask him for the healing, as opposed to any medicine, remedy or doctor.

      We wish you all the best and hope that you find hijama to be helpful, inshallah. You may need a few treatments before you see a difference, as acne can be a longstanding condition.
      We pray you benefit from the Hijama.

    Is there any remedy for height in hijama

    • Asslaamoalaykum,

      We don’t have any case study to back it but if the height issue is because of any medical problem, Hijama will remove that problem insha Allah. So try it anyway. It will be beneficial anyway.
