Cupping is a form of ancient Chinese treatment which was also used by the ancient Egyptians. Cupping stimulates life force energy through meridians in the body. Cupping is also called Hijama.
Hijama (حجامة) / Wet cupping is a procedure where suction is created on the skin using a cup on top of the punctured skin(using a tiny needle) to draw blood out. Hijama / Wet cupping may remove toxins by stimulating the immune response, both locally and systemically. It may also eliminate uric acid, a natural waste product from the digestion of certain foods. Uric acid buildup can lead to high levels of acidity in the blood and urine. It may also have a positive effect on the lymphatic system, which is partially responsible for eliminating your body’s waste.
Hijama (حجامة) / Wet cupping is a relatively safe procedure when performed by a trained health professional. For Hijama, we strictly follow the health and safety code and dispose the used plastic cups at the end of each session.
