Hijama is a traditional healing modality from the Muslim world. Steeped in mystery and traditions modern medicine is now discovering its benefits in promoting improved circulation and blood quality. Hijama has been helpful as an adjunct treatment for many difficult to treat conditions. I will be discussing all aspects of the theory and hands on practicalities involved with performing this treatment sprinkled with a traditional Chinese medicine perspective. This course will enhance your understanding and give you confidence to perform this treatment. Packed with easy to reference diagrams I will break this down to make this easy to follow and support you along your journey. Hijama has many healing benefits and it is important to know not just who to cup, but when to cup them and how many cups to use. I will be able to explain about the lunar calendar, it’s impact on cupping in strength and how seasonality and climatic effect are considerations for your treatment. Hijama is used in the Muslim culture to perform Al Ruqyah, getting rid of evil eye and dealing with Jinn. I will be delving into the sidr or black magic that can be treated with hijama and discussing relevant considerations. There is an additional section going over what is and what is not haram for your health. While hijama can help maintain health it is important to follow the traditional principals for good health. This extra section is just my personal understanding from a non-muslim interpretation and merely voicing of my opinion and interpretation meant as a guideline for those wishing to go deeper on their personal wellness journey for themselves and their family.
