What is Hijama cupping therapy?


Hijama or wet cupping therapy is one of the oldest and most effective ways of removing toxins and stagnant blood from the body. It helps in the regeneration of blood cells and pain relief. The cupping helps open energy channels through the body tissues and organs. 

Hijama works on tissues up to 10 cm from the surface of the skin. Thus, Hijama cupping is one of the most profound tissue treatments. The acupuncturist uses several types of cups according to the purpose of the therapy. The cups are available in various materials such as glass, bamboo, animal horns, and clay. Presently, glass cups are used widely.

How does Dr. Siddique Shaikh provide Hijama therapy in Mumbai?

  • The treatment mechanism of cupping is based on the principle of suction vacuum. 

  • The acupuncturist places the cups with the help of a vacuum pump tool. As the vacuum creates, it causes the skin to lift. The blood vessels expand and give a massage effect. 

  • The acupuncturist selects the sites based on the ailment. The cups are commonly placed on areas with more muscles. The back is the most common treatment site, followed by the chest, abdomen, buttocks, and legs. 

  • The acupuncturist removes the cups after 5 to 10 minutes. Further, the therapist makes minute incisions on the cupping sites.

  • It helps in the removal of morbid blood and body impurities from the tissues and nearby organs. It also helps replace new blood cells in the body.
