About Us

Welcome to Hijama House ( Hijama Clinic )

The inception of Hijama House took place in the year 2009. Hijama House is the first centre to carry out ‘’HIJAMA’’ or Cupping therapy in the country.It was started in order to treat patients with the cure allah created for mankind.They say that the prophetic way of healing is by far one of the best treatments and no other branch of medicine can match up to it ever.Hijama has been regarded as Sunnah by Prophet Muhammad SAW and the Hadith presents a clear proof of the same.Hijama is a word which has been derived from the Arabic word Hajm which means ‘’Sucking’’.During cupping a therapist applies cups on the skin for few minutes in order to create suction.It is done in order to cure inflammation ,improve the blood flow and also for relaxation and ones well being.

Though cupping is prominently of 2 types dry and wet , wet cupping is being practiced on a large scale these days.Wet cupping is a process in which silicone cups are applied on few points of the body for about 3 minutes so that mild suction is created.The therapist then makes small light and tiny cuts with the help of a scalpel and later the cup is applied again in order to draw out little blood.However only 3-5 cups are applied in one go.

Studies have proven that wet cupping therapy can remove harmful substances and toxins from the body leading to progressive healing of various diseases.

“Indeed in hijama (cupping) there is a cure”.  – Saheeh Muslim

Bismillah Hirrahman Nirrahim.

All praise to Allah Who Created the human from soil, He is Allah Who also Made rocks from the soil which can crush the soil, He is Allah Who Created Iron which breaks the rocks, He is Allah Who Created Fire which melts the Iron, He is Allah Who Created WATER which extinguishes the fire, He is Allah Who Created AIR which can carry tons of water as clouds, & He is Allah Who Descends the rain & Gives life to dead soil. Tibb-e-Nabawi is the divine medicine that was Gifted by Allah to Prophet Muhammad Salallaho Alaihe Wasallam by WAHEE (revelation). It is the true healing for both the doctor & patient, for the sick & healthy. "There is a tremendous connection between the soul and what the body suffers due to physical diseases. Only the most ignorant people will deny the effects of the soul on body and on human nature as a whole. Allah Gives the soul certain powers over the body when someone is attacked by diseases. In addition, the soul has certain effects on the body when it experiences the ailments that are caused by septic substances, especially when blood, semen or black bile is irritated.

Disease was Created by Allah & CURE is also Provided by Allah, so why to go through the painful cycle of DMC (Disease ~ Medicine ~ CURE) ? The Messenger (saw) said, For every disease there is a cure so if the medicine comes upon the disease it cures it by the will of Allah, the Most High. [Sahih Muslim - 5741] Risk free ever treatment for any kind of pain/ailments or chronic issues that has no side effects only extra benefits. Hijama/cupping is an Islamic ritual that cures. Cheapest ever treatment for any kind of pain/ailments or chronic issues that has no side effects only extra benefits. Allah the creator has prescribed this treatment for his creation. There are simply patients who desire a treatment method that does not involve chemical substances clinical side-effects, or even iatrogenic effects. Such patients prefer a therapeutic process that strengthens that organism, when applied in illness, to the point where it becomes more resistant and healthy from illness. Cupping/hijama offer all this. 'Hijama' in arabic is derived from 'hajm' which means 'sucking'. Cupping (hijama) is the process of applying cups to various points on the body by removing the air inside the cups to form a vacuum.

To detoxify the body the Wet Cupping procedure is used to remove harmful blood; small scratches are made on the skin that allows the vacuum to draw out blood, which is high in toxins and help build up immunity. For healthy people it is the best preventive measure. Other benefits that hijama promotes on healing:- cellulite, weight loss, fatigue, period pain, constipation and diarrhoea, headaches, back pain, arthritis, injuries, asthma, anaemia, depression and emotional problems, atrophy, sciatica, common cold and flu, skin problems and much more . Traditional healers have long recognized the association between pain and conditions of congestion, stagnation and blockage. An old Chinese medical maxim states: Where there's stagnation, there will be pain. Remove the stagnation, and you remove the pain. Not only pain, but the vast majority of all illness and disease comes from stagnation, congestion and blockage - of energy, like the Vital Force, or of vital fluids or humors, like blood, phlegm or lymph. The suction applied by cupping sucks out and breaks up that congestion, stagnation, or blockage, restoring a free flow to the vital energies and humors of the organism.

Actually, pain is the essence of disease. Suffering, or disease, is experienced when things aren't flowing right, when there's some difficulty or obstruction to the natural flow and functioning of the body. In addition to dispersing and breaking up stagnation and congestion in the flow of the Vital Force, blood and other humors, cupping also disperses pathogenic heat, toxins and inflammation by bringing them to the surface for release. Pathogenic heat and toxins can fester and eat away at the organism when they're submerged and under pressure, but they find release at the surface. Cupping can even be instrumental in mitigating or relieving fevers in the acute crisis stage, and in mitigating and reducing the putrefaction of blood and other humors, a common cause of fevers. By drawing congested energy, blood, or other humors to the surface, cupping is a form of derivation therapy. Derivation means the drawing away or diversion of vital energies or substances away from the site of blockage and obstruction in order to relieve congestion and restore health and patency to the organism.

Toxins, morbid humors and other congested offending matter can do more harm when they're deep within the organism, obstructing the functioning of the vital organs at the body's core. The organism, whenever it can, will try to peripheralize such morbid matter by sending it to the service in the form of various cysts, boils or eruptions, even though they may be unsightly. Cupping is a way of activating this peripheralization and relieving pathogenic congestion to the internal organs, thus averting or preventing more serious disorders. By improving the circulation of blood, lymph and other vital fluids and breaking up and dispersing blockages and congestions of offending waste matter, toxins and morbid humors, cupping improves the eliminative functions and the evacuation of wastes from the organism. In Greek Medicine, the proper and timely evacuation of wastes from the body forms an important aspect of hygiene. Whether it is constipation, urinary retention, or even suppressed menses, the undue retention of anything that should be expelled is a major cause of morbidity and disease.

The Benefits of Cupping

The benefits of cupping are many. On a general, systemic level, cupping improves the circulation of blood and lymph. It also regulates and improves the functioning of the autonomic nervous system. Locally, the most obvious benefit of cupping is a relief of pain and a relaxation and increased suppleness of stiff tendons and muscles. Cupping increases the cleansing flow of lymph, while removing congested blood from the muscles. If cupping is applied to the joints, the blood flow to the joint is increased and there's an increased secretion of synovial fluid into the joint cavity. Cupping's effect on the digestive organs is to increase their digestive secretions and enhance their peristaltic movement. Cupping can awaken the appetite, strengthen the stomach and digestion, improve the bile flow and metabolism, relieve constipation and promote regularity of the bowels. Cupping has a dramatic detoxifying effect on the skin and circulatory system. By increasing the flow of blood and plasma through the veins and arteries, cupping enhances the cleansing and removal of toxins. This detoxification may not be observable after just one treatment, but after about three to five treatments, there will be a noticeable improvement in the colour of one's complexion.

Cupping is beneficial and indicated for multiple disorders affecting multiple organ systems: Digestive system: constipation, diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) Vital, Metabolic: low energy, fatigue, anaemia, atrophy of the tissues, cellulite, emaciation, weight gain - normalizes body weight. Nervous system: headaches, depression, emotional problems - balances the nervous system. Gynaecological menstrual pain, suppressed or irregular menses Musculoskeletal: Local application, as appropriate, for back pain, arthritis, traumatic injuries, lumbago, sciatica. Respiratory & Circulatory: asthma, bronchitis, common cold and flu, high blood pressure. Increased blood flow to the skin is therapeutic for many different skin disorders.


“I see Hijama or wet cupping as a very effective adjunctive therapy on the path to wellness.”
“It act like a magnet for acids, toxins and pathogens.”

Observations by Dr David Parker

Found in Eliminated live blood sample viewed under dark field microscopy
❖Proteinous waste
❖ Rouleaux and Fibrin
❖ Toxic metals
❖ Over acidic and infected blood

Degenerative processes evidenced under light field microscopy (The white lakes seen here indicate that tissues associated with the vascular system have become inflamed and are harbouring atherosclerotic plaques, toxic metals and cholesterol), How the dry layered blood sample should look under light field microscopy (Observe the absence of any white lakes, the clean finely cut edge showing no toxic metals and the black lines all joining together like a matrix) David Parker works in the field of clinical nutrition, naturopathy and the research of the effectiveness of both modern and ancient healing techniques. Microscopic assessment of blood is one means of determining the nutritional status as well as the toxic elements present in a person’s blood.

A before and after assessment is useful in determining the changes occurring as a result of the therapy being applied. Cupping is a healing method that treats without the burden of medications and is absolutely harmless, if applied correctly and appropriately. This harmlessness of cupping therapy alone is already enough of a recommendation for its application. In addition, cupping has four decisive advantages: First, this therapy largely prevents complications. Second, the disease subsides faster. Third, resistance is stimulated and remissions therefore occur more rarely.

And fourth, you can reduce the dosage of chemical medications. As a result of which their negative side-effects are reduced or completely eliminated. These four points are precisely the reason why cupping therapy is enjoying great popularity with an ever-increasing number of patients! For many of these people, the prospect of cure was hopeless with the methods of clinical medicine or the methods of conventional medicine had failed. They then experienced for themselves that the gentle therapy of cupping is able to improve or cure many acute, but also painful chronic diseases quickly, safely, and without negative side-effects. Is this not a further reason for incorporating cupping into the conventional Western treatment methods? In many cases, cupping can be used both by itself and as the most logical supplement to necessary clinical measures, in which case its use never disturbs the clinical therapy but only works for the benefit of the patient.
