USE OF HIJAMA (CUPPING) FOR EFFECTIVE WEIGHT LOSS

In a generation when physical fitness is given topmost attention, people are always on the lookout for the newest and most effective means for weight loss. Hijama or cupping, the method of placing cups and creating suction on certain points on an individual’s body, has been found to be very effective method for weight loss.

Many people may not find the idea of being cut by the surgical blade quite comforting in their quest for weight control. However, the option is there and one can also have Dry Hijama instead of Wet Hijama that can also deliver a control mechanism, enabling the person to manage hunger cravings more successfully in the long run. However, Dry Hijama (cupping) for effective weight loss might take more time than Wet Hijama.

The Skinny on Hijama Weight Loss

It has been found that weight gain is directly related to emotions. Other than physical hunger, people reach for a huge chocolate bar or a big platter of burger and fries because of the sense of comfort derived from food and eating. More often than not, excessive weight gain is an emotional issue, rather than a mere physical one. You may not realize it, but you tend to take in more food whenever you’re stressed, upset, or pressured.

In Hijama, there are specific spots on the body that corresponds to acupuncture points, these spots are linked to certain areas in the body and by stimulating these spots; the person will achieve a greater sense of inner balance. As these points are raised through suction action due to which not only blood circulation is increased and bad blood  is brought on the surface also certain hormones are released throughout the body. These substances work by helping you manage hunger and efficiently control the impulse to overeat.

How Hjijama Induces Weight Loss

Most Hijama Practitioners will target the spots behind the ear when it comes to promoting weight loss. When these points behind the ear are stimulated, endorphin are released in large doses. Endorphin are called the feel-good hormones, and these are also often referred to as natural pain and fever relievers. The release of endorphin is what makes you feel better after an increased level of physical activity, as in the case of a good workout.

These bodily compounds allow the person to experience better relaxation, thus considerably alleviating stress. There is a greater possibility of enhanced weight loss when the patient has already achieved emotional wellness. Endorphin are also released whenever the body experiences low levels of bodily pain, thus they function as a natural pain reliever.

People who undergo even the Wet Hijama, i.e. blood letting through surgical blade or through needles of acupuncture typically experience very minimal or no pain at all, since the spots are slightly different and much larger as against acupuncture points most which are located near nerve endings and muscle tissues. Whether a person undergoes Dry or Wet Hijama in both cases signals are sent to the brain thus promoting the release of endorphin from the pituitary gland.

There are many other points in the body that serve as gateways for better weight management. One of these placements promotes a decrease in an individual’s appetite, while another has the ability to reduce water retention in the body. The Hijama Practitioner may choose a multi-targeted approach, depending on the requirements of the person.

Consulting with a Professional Hijama Therapist

There are a number of Hijama practitioners in existence nowadays, offering a host of services. If you are considering this form treatment for your weight management, make sure that you settle with no less than a trained and professional Hijama therapist. A poorly trained person may not be able to pinpoint the specific meridian points and worse, may cause unnecessary bodily pain and discomfort.

Moreover, your therapist may require an herbal supplement for your treatment, to encourage a longer-term effect. Your sessions need not be maintained for an extensive period; however you may be required to visit your therapist during the entire course of the sessions.

There are other means for losing weight successfully, and this does not include crash dieting and strenuous work outs. If carried out by trained professionals, Hijama can be the answer for effective weight management. While it is far from being a cure-all, it may just be the right weight loss solution for you.
