What is Hijama
Hijama (Wet Cupping) is an ancient, holistic therapy, fully utilized and encouraged within many cultures. It is one of the most effective methods of releasing toxins from the body’s tissues and organs. Hijama is a safe, non-invasive technique that facilitates a natural detoxification & self healing process. Hijama treatment is carried out on various points on the body; depending on the nature of the disturbance - illness, using sterile disposable cups. The areas cupped undergo a skin scarification process using a sterile disposable blade, metabolic waste, interstitial fluid are then accumulated in the cup & disposed of. After treatment one can feel lightness in the body, improved concentration & better mental clarity, aches & pains diminished or removed, better sleep and increased energy levels.
