Cupping & Hijama Therapy

The rooted treatment method based on creating a regional vacuum to achieve healing is called Cupping Therapy. In order to get rid of diseases or protect health, wet cupping therapy, in which dirty blood is taken from congestion, capillaries and thin veins at certain points where waste materials are intensely collected, is known as Hijama.

What are the Benefits of Hijama ?

The Surprising Benefits of Cup Massage Cupping is a safe, traditional treatment that helps resolve chronic muscle tension and pain faster than massage therapy alone.

Many athletes and celebrities are rediscovering the benefits of cupping. Maybe you’ve even seen people with red rings on their backs and shoulders at your gym or swimming pool. It is becoming more common for people to benefit from cupping therapy to relieve chronic muscle pain. But did you know that these cups can be used to treat many other complaints?

Cup increases circulation

The vacuum from the cups increases circulation in the area where the cups are placed. Additional blood flow to this area can help relieve muscle tension and support cell repair. Increasing circulation with cupping also helps reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Cup encourages tissues to release toxins

Yes, you have organs that flush out toxins from your blood. But the modern lifestyle is overloading your body with toxins. Cupping gives your body a boost in releasing these toxins. Focused blood flow helps your body by clearing accumulated toxins through the lymphatic system.

Cup reduces anxiety

When your therapist slides the cups across your skin, your parasympathetic nervous system starts to work. That provides deep relaxation to move through your entire body. (Your parasympathetic nervous system is responsible for slowing your heart rate, aiding digestion, and increasing gut and gland activity.)

The cup can reduce stretch marks and scars

The increased blood flow allows your body to flush out toxins, restores lymphatic circulation, and helps remove edema (excess fluid), which helps reduce the appearance of scarring. Studies have shown the positive effects of cupping on stretch marks and scars, even in areas far from the cupping place.

Cupping can heal varicose veins and capillaries.

Cupping can heal varicose veins and capillaries.Varicose veins look like swollen, bluish veins just under your skin, usually on the legs and feet. They occur when the valves within the vein do not work properly, the valves do not effectively push blood from the muscle to the heart, so the blood becomes clogged and the veins twist and swell. Hijama helps by returning fresh blood flow and oxygen to problem areas. You will notice that your varicose veins look lighter after your first session, but it will take a series of cupping sessions for lasting results.

Hijama can be used as an aid to respiratory diseases.

The suction from the cups breaks up and clears the blockage. It carries oxygen-rich blood and lymph to your lungs and other respiratory muscles. Cups are usually placed on your back, but can also be placed on your chest. Your therapist may leave the cups in place or gently slide them up to facilitate the movement of lymph fluid. Facial cupping can also be used to help unblock your sinuses.

Hijama can aid digestion

Cupping helps activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which increases blood flow to the digestive system. Gentle cupping on the abdomen also stimulates the inside of your digestive organs. It aids in peristalsis (contractions that push food through your digestive tract), encourages blood and body fluids to move between your organs, and helps relieve indigestion.

Are There Any Side Effects of Hijama?

Hijama has no known side effects. However, the expertise of the person who will apply it is very important. With the GETAT directive published in 2014, applications without the supervision of a doctor are prohibited. For this reason, it is not appropriate both in terms of health and legally to do it in places that are not in sterile conditions and do not have the approval of the Ministry of Health.
