Hijama or cupping therapy is an Islamic medical practice used for pain relief and curing other diseases. It’s a medical therapy where the congested and stagnant blood is drawn from the body using the mouth of a cup. Hijama was regularly performed by the prophet Muhammad S.A.W due to the health benefits it offers and recommended it to his Ummah (nation).


The history of Hijama dates back to almost 3000 BC. The Arabs, Greeks and Persians used it to cure illnesses and gain purity. Hippocrates, a celebrated Greek practitioner used Hijama to treat physiological illnesses.


Hijama is done by applying cups to the parts of the skin where pain or ache feels. They cling to the skin for a few minutes. The cups are applied to create a tight seal and draw out stagnant blood. The mouths of the cups are usually made of glass or plastic.

5 Reasons You Should Try Cupping Therapy (Hijama)

Cupping or Hijama is a technique that is gaining popularity these days; presumably this technique is able to cure almost any ailment from joint pains to cancer. As modern medicine has moved forward leaps and bounds the traditional technique of cupping or Hijama is still considered better than traditional medicine. Hijama is a sunnat and can be performed on any day; however, according to the teachings of Holy Prophet (S.A.W) one should have Hijama done on the 17th, 19th and 21st of each month.

1. Massage

Cupping therapy or Hijama is considered a type of massage and has one key difference, taking out of blood. During the cupping therapy, just like a massage the person feels refreshed and pure, as the technique helps remove the infected blood from the body.

2. Detox

In an age where each individual can be seen detoxifying there body to remove the junk from it, Hijama surprisingly does the same thing. In several circumstances such as poor circulation of the blood in our veins, can result in several bacteria and toxins buildup and this can result in severe effects on the body. Cupping or Hijama can help remove all the impure blood from the body, so that the body is free from toxins and bacteria and is safe from infections. That is why when a person receives the cupping therapy they are often asked to drink lots of water to flush away any excess impurities still left in the body.

3. Anti-aging

Hijama can help slow down the aging process of the body. Cupping therapy is known to stop this process as it can drastically improve the circulation and improve body functions. The fresh blood that flows through the body actually helps the muscles and our tissues receive the proper oxygen and specific nutrients properly. After a few therapies the body starts to feel relaxed and regain its original strength. Cupping is also done on the face-a small mark can help your face remove the signs of aging from your face.

4. Healing

Cupping therapy is mostly used to heal the body, from sore muscles, to inflammation in the body, Hijama can cure all. Usually the inflammation that happens in the body is due to the body trying desperately to cure the injury. Hijama can help draw blood faster to the injured area and new blood vessels are created and healing is quicker. This is the reason why many athletes are seen to use the cupping therapy as a way to build muscle tissues and stamina and heal ailments and muscle problems.

5. Health and Wellness

Hijama or cupping therapy can help remove pains, help the body rejuvenate and get a burst of energy. Cupping can help remove stress and other mental problems as well. Hijama can also help relieve depression and anxiety. It is an overall cure which must be tried however, not everyone can do cupping properly therefore, check the authenticity of a cupping expert before taking on the therapy.

Our Services

Moving Cupping

This is the process where we keep the cups moving with the aid of oil. This is immensely relaxing and invigorating. Moving Cupping can be administered at any time and as much as the patient likes.

Dry Cupping

This is the process where the cups are placed on the body with suction however, unlike “Wet Cupping” (Hijama) blood is not removed from the skin.

Wet cupping (Hijama)

This is the process where the cups are placed on the body with suction (dry cupping) then small scratches to the superficial layers of the skin are made under the cup with a surgical blade which stimulates blood to rise to the surface.

Facial Cupping

Facial cupping is an excellent form of non-invasive treatment that can work to minimize the effects of sun and environmental damage, and aging. It is completely safe to use since it does not involve surgery and long recuperation time, chemicals or any other potentially harmful and painful procedures. Further, it is more economical as against expensive creams and lotions that claim to remove the signs of aging, but may or may not be effective. Facial cupping has been used by many people across Europe, Russia and Asia and is found to be very effective in eliminating wrinkles and lending a smooth, texture to the skin.
