Hijama, also known as cupping therapy,is a method in which your blood is drawn toward the skin through a vacuum. The therapist puts cups having vacuum pressure inside them over your skin, and it draws blood toward the surface, removing toxins and impurities from nearby tissues. Hijama helps treat various illnesses and is being used for decades. It has its importance in Islamic history too.
The difference between dry and wet cupping therapy is that in that dry cupping therapy no incision is made,but in wet cupping therapy incisions are made on the skin along with vacuum pressure application.Hijama clears the body of debris and toxins that we accumulated due zo our sedentary lifestyle.
One of the ways the body works is to store toxins that it cannot process or eliminate out of the body. Over time, this gets to be a very heavy load. It starts triggering the immune system and causes dis-ease.Hijama can remove congestion and debris which relieves pain and inflammation

Abu Hurairah(r.a) reported that the Messenger (PBUH) said, “Whoever performs cupping (hijama) on the 17th, 19th or 21st day (of the Islamic, lunar month) then it is a cure for every disease.” [Sunan Abu Dawud Hadith No: 3861].
We suggest you perform hijama 2-3 times a year. It’s an excellent detox for your body. If your therapist finds high levels of toxins coming out, they may suggest placing you on a detox program of performing Hijama once a month for 3 months consecutively.
