In Arabic, the word “hijama” means “to suck or to draw out”. Hijama treatment is a safe, economic and non-invasive way of curing many diseases. It is basically a cupping method where a vaccum is created in a cup and placed on the patient’s body. The negative pressure of the vacuum pulls the muscles into the cup, and thereby draws the blood into the cupped region. The cup is then removed, small shallow incisions are made in the region (at certain “hijama” points) , and the cup is placed back again to pull out the acids, excess fluids and toxic blood from the body.
The Chinese used this method for curing medical complications such as colds, lungs infections, joint pain, internal organ disorders, etc. Now, this is being recognised as an alternative medicine to treat various diseases and disorders. This article lists and discusses the medical and scientific benefits of Hijama.
