I) Are you going to pump out all of my blood!?!?

Relax! The blood that comes out is from the surface of the skin, it is not from the mainstream. If you are thinking your blood system only contains hemoglobin, platelets, plasma and white blood cells you are wrong, there are so many other junks that fly around in your body such as dead blood cells, blood clots, different toxins and pathogen. Different people's body give different responses, sometimes hardly anything comes out from a person's skin and that is a good thing. Because the cuts are very light the body heals the area very quick and automatically the blood stops coming out. We constantly analyze the patient if they are feeling well or not. Only in paradise you will be 100% pure and clean.

J) How long does it take to do hijama?

Depends how many cups you do, the standard five cups on the back takes approximately 45 mins.

K)How often should I do hijama?

It is totally up to you, some do it every month as a preventative medicine in the sunnah days, which is 17th, 19th and the 21st of the Islamic lunar calender. For non-veg.4 months d foer vegetarian 6 months or even after a year depends. Hijama is a detoxification therapy, there are other detox programs that people follow for example, they may start to have more (organic) fruits and vegetables, antioxidant drinks, cut down on fatty unhealthy foods and so on.

L) I am pregnant can I do hijama?

No, you cannot do hijama if you are pregnant.

M) Can i do hijama if I had a miscarriage?

If you had a miscarriage recently we do not recommend hijama because after a miscarriage the body needs to rejuvenate itself, it can take close to 6 months to a year depending on the individual and how serious the miscarriage was, you must see your doctor before you try to conceive again. For sisters who had a miscarriage we strongly recommend to have a good nutrition diet with multivitamins everyday, believe me it will make a difference to your body. Avoid eating too much of carbs and spices e.g. rice, spice and red meat. Some shiekhs recommend for a woman after giving birth to wait at least 2 years before planning to get pregnant, because the body needs to fully recover and so on. You can try hijama after 6 months of your miscarriage (depending on what the doctor says and your situation), please make sure you are eating well and you do not need to fast before doing hijama. If you just ate we recommend for you to wait at least 2-3 hours before the hijama treatment.

N) What are the side effects of hijama?

NO SIDE EFFECTS ONLY EXTRA BENEFITS. However in some cases, possible side effects are feeling light headed, sick/nausea (especially in the morning on an empty stomach), fainting/blackout due to lack of energy and temporary bruising. These cases are very rare and only occur if the patient is very unwell.

Patients Information:-


What to expect?

Remember that Hijama is an easy yet very effective way of assisting your body to heal or prevent it from becoming imbalanced and consequently unwell. The therapist will show you a cup (there are different sizes of cups available, we will choose one that is appropriate for you) that will be placed either on the area/s of pain or on specific points of your body to promote healing or detoxification. We use disposable cups brand new, after using it on one patient we obviously get rid of it. We do not use glass cups with fire (also known as fire cupping) because No.1 accidents can happen and we do not want to end up burning our patients No.2 glass cups needs to be sterilized very well with good sterilizing tools, so just to be on the safe side we do not use glass cups. Everything we use is brand new from the pack. Remember the cuts are very light scratches, and nothing is going in as the suction is always pulling out, this is a smart therapy, your skin filters/fights bacteria and other pathogens every day, so the chance of getting seriously infected is very low, especially when combined with the health and hygiene standard procedure.

types of hijama :

Dry Hijama: One or more cups are placed on the body with suction for up to half an hour.
Massage Hijama: Oil is applied to allow the cup to be moved over the body with suction.
Wet (blood) Hijama: This is the same as Dry Hijama only with small scratches under the cup to extract toxic blood. This is the most effective treatment.


Preparation before and after treatment.

Before:

The best advice is to fast; however, some people are unwell or feel very weak when fasting. It is better not to eat solid food for at least 2-3 hours before treatment so that the body is not occupied with digesting food. It is best to eat healthy food 24 hours before and after treatment. You are allowed to drink water!

 

After:

After the hijama session try to rest as some people feel very tired and need to relax or sleep. Others feel energised as they physically and psychologically feel refreshed; but do not exert yourself even if you feel like this. Do not underestimate the treatment and remember to respect the fact that your body needs rest in order to replenish and repair. Keep warm; do not allow the areas that have been treated to be exposed to the wind, water or cold. This also means no showers or baths for the next 2 hours. Try not to eat red meat and dairy products for the next 24 hours. This is because these items take up 40% of your body’s energy to digest, and this energy is needed to rejuvenate your body after having the treatment.

Reminder: If you plan to do hijama on your head please shave your hair before coming to the hijama premises. No blade zero or blade one, please shave properly with a razor blade. The cup becomes very difficult to place and to create a negative pressure becomes very hard as the hair prevents it from creating a suction. Also if you sweat a lot please have a shower before coming to the hijama premises for health and hygiene reasons.

'Hairy brothers' please remember to shave your back before coming to do hijama, it takes too long for us to do that job and will clash with the next appointment.

Please feel free to call for appointment.
