Hijama or cupping therapy is a proven procedure that is very popular for muscle
rehabilitation, treating chronic illness, psoriasis, infertility and other health concerns.
Hijama literally means suction in Arabic and has been around for about 5000 years.
Hijama or cupping helps to revive a sluggish lymphatic system, remove toxins and improve blood circulation. It can relieve chronic pain, migraine, inflammation, period pain, musculoskeletal issues, arthritis and chronic fatigue.
Hijama can leave behind bruising that heals with time. It’s not advised for those on bloodthinning medication and pregnant women.
