I am excited to embark on a new adventure in my career. It will go from strength to strength and there is a lot of excitement around hijama now. I will be producing some promotional and education literature.

When I would go to the doctors, they would diagnose me wrongly or tell me it was me and it was in my head. So I began to look for alternative therapies and always found myself coming back to Hijama.

The first time I experienced Hijama, it was for an injury that I had at the gym. A trusted friend performed the therapy on me, and from that single session, I was able to regain mobility in my otherwise immobile arm.

I am a Project Manager, Mum and run a Hijama Clinic. I've got so much energy and  so much drive to revive this sunnah! May Allah reward Hijama Nation for this Course!

I have studied naturopathic nutrition and hijama. It is an amazing therapy from a physical, mental and spiritual point of view. I particularly like the Hijamaology module on this course.

I have found that Hijama has benefited my Chinese Medicine Practice a lot and even taken it over as my main discipline. I find hijama helps a lot with womens issues.
