Cupping / Hijama


Cupping / Hijama

Cupping (Hijama) is the practice of placing suction cups on affected areas to increase blood circulation to those areas.

This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue.

Hijama can help with arthritis, lower back pain, and other problems. It can also treat headaches, migraines, tooth pain, muscular pain, sciatica, and other types of pain.

Cupping assists in:

  • Promoting the skin’s blood flow
  • Changing the skin’s biomechanical properties
  • Increasing pain thresholds
  • Improving local anaerobic (without oxygen) metabolism
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Boosting cellular immunity
  • Stimulating the immune system with artificial local inflammation
  • Increasing the flow of lymph in the lymphatic system
