Congestion or the buildup of phlegm and other fluids in the lungs can cause a range of breathing or respiratory issues like cough, asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema. All these issues if not treated in time can result in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, a condition that finally leads to damage to the lungs.

How does it Works ?

Cupping therapy works because it aims to loosen the congestion and fluids from your lungs so that the body can safely expel them.      It also induces the immunity system of your body to react against the congestion to help clear it. When the cup with vacuum is        placed over the patient’s body, it creates a negative suction that induces the flow of blood to the area.

Not only do the lungs receive a fresh infusion of healing, oxygen, nutrients and lymph, but the blood also works to cleanse it of the impurities and other debris it may have accumulated. In this way, the muscles of your respiratory system are healed and become stronger. They become more efficient and are stimulated to eliminate the congestion and stagnation.

It works by improving your lung health. Due to the suction action of hijama cups, it breaks the congestion. Further, it enhances the          blood and lymph supply to your respiratory system. In this way, it helps to unblock your sinuses thus improving your respiratory health.

What is cupping?How Disease can be cured through Hijama?

Hijama, also known as cupping therapy,is a method in which your blood is drawn toward the skin through a vacuum. The therapist puts cups having vacuum pressure inside them over your skin, and it draws blood toward the surface, removing toxins and impurities from nearby tissues. Hijama helps treat various illnesses and is being used for decades. It has its importance in Islamic history too.


The difference between dry and wet cupping therapy is that in that dry cupping therapy no incision is made,but in wet cupping therapy incisions are made on the skin along with vacuum pressure application.Hijama clears the body of debris and toxins that we accumulated due zo our sedentary lifestyle. One of the ways the body works is to store toxins that it cannot process or eliminate out of the body. Over time, this gets to be a very heavy load. It starts triggering the immune system and causes dis-ease.Hijama can remove congestion and debris which relieves pain and inflammation, increase range of movement, improve circulation, sedate th nervous system, openchest, and lungs, clear drainage pathways. Recent studies have found that Hijama plays an important role in cancer prevention and in reducing creatinine load on the kidneys.
