The process of Cupping therapy or Hijama therapy involves a series of glass cups, usually no more than seven at a time, placed at specific points on the body. Air is vacuumed out of the cups, creating suction against the surface of the skin. Eventually, this suction removes toxin-rich blood from the body.
What are the Benefits of Hijama Therapy?
Hijama therapy helps prevent disease and increases blood circulation. It is a safe, painless procedure and is used by several Olympic athletes.
According to the British Cupping Society, Hijama therapy helps treat
- High blood pressure
- Varicose veins and issues with fertility
What Kinds of Hijama Techniques are Available?
The simple application of suction cups to one’s skin is referred to as dry cupping. It’s an effective therapy, but can be taken a step further. It is similar to dry cupping but includes making very small incisions in the skin before applying suction cups.
Hijama Therapy also known as blood cupping can be conducted after a session of dry cupping, allowing more blood and toxins to be drawn from the body. Furthermore, Hijama therapy is commonly used in combination with other treatments like acupuncture and massage.
When Should Hijama Therapy be Used?
Cupping is very relaxing and makes for a wonderful spa day. Detoxing, one of the greatest benefits of Hijama therapy, helps prevent illness and promotes mental wellness. The best time for Hijama therapy is after a long work week when one needs to remove toxins and rebalance themselves.
