Hijama – The Ancient Therapy from all Diseases.
Hijama Therapy is created on the principles of Ancient Tibetan Healing Art, a unique system of preventative healthcare that integrates healthy food, workout, acupuncture, cupping and Phototherapy in order to stimulate and maintain a strong and well-adjusted mind and body.
The initial aim is that keeping stability within the body’s structures can help to avoid ill condition from happening. This is done by getting about a well-adjusted flow of the organism’s energy, identified as Chi, which streams around the body in conduits that also called Meridians. It is understood that all disorders that reveals in the body is the outcome of a disproportion of this Chi. By stimulating or dispersing of particular points alongside these Channels it is likely to impact the flow of the energy. The result of this contains, dispersing stagnant accumulations of energy and firming areas of weak Chi, and thus reestablishing, and conserving the organism’s original condition. One of the most effective tools to stimulate and maintain amount and quality of energy (Chi) is cupping.
The Quran calls this procedure Hijama.
According to this book the Prophet improved this procedure by advising particular hours of the day at which to implement Hijama in order to develop maximum advantage and by specifying the ideal zones of the body to implement Hijama to expedite and support healthiness and wellbeing as a defensive measure against the onset of illnesses or diseases.
What is so Good about Hijama Therapy
Getting one Hijama treatment per week will provide an real approach to avoiding illness by stimulating the initial stability of the body’s organs by simplifying the manufacture of hormones, invigorating blood flow, decreasing the gathering of stagnated body fluids and encouraging the organism to release of toxins.
Hijama also beneficial in healing different conditions: Gastro-Intestinal problems, Bones and Joints diseases, muscular aches, respiratory disorders, neuritis and neuralgias, fever, skin problems, infertility, and many more.
It is suggested that Hijama be accomplished on the ‘odd’ days of the Muslim Calendar. Also, the most recommended days of the week are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. The ideal Sunnah days to implement Hijama are the 17th, 19th and 21st of the Lunar days Calendar especially when these days match with Monday, Tuesday or Thursday. The Prophet recommended not to practice Hijama on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and strongly advised not to perform Hijama on Wednesdays.
Ibn Umar wrote that the Prophet mentioned: “Hijama done on an empty stomach works much better than with food. It is a treatment and a Consecration. It advances the brainpower and the remembrance. So use Hijama with the Blessing of Allah on Thursday. Don’t do Hijama on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but practice hijama on Monday and Tuesday.”
What is Hijama Procedure?
In the beginning of procedure we spread over some oil over the skin where we are planning to put cups. Black Seed oil or Olive oil are good for softening the skin, for increasing comfort improving the seal between the cup and skin and in the case of Cupping Massage it also lubricate the skin to make a cup to slip. Each treatment begins by placing a cup or a few of them to desired areas with mild or medium level of suction. The rest of the procedure depends on practitioner decision and the goal of the it. The Hijama could be dry when cups stay on skin for 10-20 minutes; however the more aggressive type of Hijama is Wet Hijama, when practitioner after 5 minutes pulls off cups from skin, makes a few superficial cuts and places cup back with the high level of suction.
Blood will fill up the cup and coagulate in about 8-10 minutes. After that cups will be removed and the skin will be cleaned up.
