Hijama is an Arabic word. It is an ancient and holistic practice to treat various diseases. However, the exact origin of Hijama therapy is unknown, and it is a matter of controversy. Cupping therapy is documented in Chinese and ancient Egyptian medical practices.
It is assumed that cupping had started over 5000 years ago, which has developed over time. It is believed that animal horns were used to suck out the blood and drain the toxins. Then, over the years the horn was evolved into bamboo cups and eventually replaced by glass.
The Arabic word hijama is derived from Al Hajm (to absorb).
Hijama therapy (Hijama therapy) is a medical practice of creating a vacuum in a cup or cup and then placing it on the surface of our skin to remove impure or bad blood waste from various parts of the body.
Usually, any disease It directly and indirectly affects the blood. Bile-rich diseases are the cause of bad blood Ayurvedic medicine and Siddha medicine flow.
Obstructions in blood flow are the cause of major disease. Impaired lymph flow creates many tumors and diseases such as cancer, altered growth (metabolic diseases) creates major diseases. Dead-immune blood creates autoimmune diseases such as psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid, and other unknown diseases.
Let's find out why blood should be removed through Hijama treatment.
Humans have an average of five liters of blood and new blood is formed every 120 days. Our waste organs like kidneys, digestive organs mainly liver, lungs and skin work continuously since birth to clean the bad blood. When these vital organs are affected without waste removal, how does the waste blood removal happen when it is difficult to work?.
When natural waste disposal does not take place Due to the removal of unnecessary waste accumulated in the blood of the body through Hijama treatment Major diseases and chronic diseases can be cured by Hijama treatment
Hijama follows some process. Firstly, the practitioner places the cup through acupuncture, according to the pain points on the body. Then, cups are applied through the suction of a hose or even glass. However, glass cups are applied in a traditional way, which uses an open flame. The flame heats the inner part of the cup. After that, flames are removed quickly, and glass stuck on the skin. Then, let the cup sit on the skin for the five to ten minutes, sometimes 10-15 minutes.
Usually, the cupping treatment involves a negative pressure on warming and suction being applied through a cup. It creates a vacuum to draw up toxins from the surface of the skins, which increases the blood flow. The cups are usually placed on neck, shoulders, back or the body part where pain occurs. There are different types of cupping available with various types of cups.
Types of cupping
2 types of basic cuppings are available Dry cupping and Wet cupping. However, there are some other types too, Moving Cupping and Air Cupping.
It doesn't suck out the blood, while wet one is done with the bloodletting. In dry cupping process, the practitioner soaks a cotton ball in alcohol and lights it up. After that, it is placed inside the cup to remove available oxygen. Next, the cup is applied to the body. Since the oxygen was removed, the cup sits on the skin and attached.
This type of cupping sucks out a small amount of blood through a puncture. The punctured skin let the toxins to leave the body.
Another type of cupping is available, which is named as moving cupping. Unlike the basic cuppings, this one can be moved while placed on the body.
It is considered as alternatives to fire cupping. In this process, a handheld suction is used to take out all the air from the cups, which creates the vacuum without heating. Air cupping is a new practice. Chinese researchers suggest that this cupping technology is innovative and more comfortable for the patients.
There are other effects that are explained in more detail in a number of traditional medical systems as well as through modern scientific research. Understanding these is important as it allows for the correct selection and application of Hijamah techniques depending on the patient and the illness they are presenting with.
Amongst the traditional medical paradigms, Unani- Tibb and Traditional Chinese Medicine are the most detailed in terms of understanding why and how Hijamah works in maintaining health and treating illness. Unani-Tibb is practiced in the Graeco-Arab region as well as by Unani practitioners throughout the world. Traditional Chinese Medicine is practiced in the Asian regions and also by practitioners throughout the world and these two have similar philosophies with regards to the effect of Hijamah.
Unani-tibb is a form of traditional medicine widely practiced by Muslims and is largely based on the teachings of the Greek physician Hippocrates, and Roman physician Galen, which was developed into an elaborate medical System by Arab and Persian physicians, such as al-Razi, Ibn Sena, Al-Zahrawi, and Ibn Nafis. Muslim practitioners are referred to as a Hakim, literally meaning "wise".
Unani philosophy is based on the concept of the four humors: Phlegm (Balgham), Blood (Dam), Yellow bile (Ṣafrā') and Black bile (Saudā'). It maintains that disease occurs through imbalance, or contamination, of the 4 humors, or alternatively as a result of the body being weak. It is very much concerned with the temperament of the body and considers aspects such as heat, coolness, dryness, phlegm and moisture and how these cause and contribute to illness. Bloodletting acts to remove contamination in the blood, rebalance the humors and draws excessive heat out of the body. In the case of traditional Hijamah (as opposed to phlebotomy) this heat will be drawn from the outer parts of the body, though there are indirect effects on the internal organs and systems.
Contemporary Unani practitioners believe that Hijamah acts to draw inflammation and pressure away from the deep organs (especially the heart, brain, lungs, liver and kidneys) towards the skin. This facilitates the healing process. They also explain that this process strengthens the immune system, encouraging the optimum functioning of the body by assisting the actions of Physis. It diverts toxins and other harmful impurities from these vital organs towards the "less-vital skin", before expulsion. The blood that is diverted also then allows for a fresh 'stream' of blood to that area.

*There is a close connection between the light of the moon and the movement of seas, oceans and rivers, because the full moon affects the tides in them, and its completion occurs on the 17th, 19th and 21st days of the lunar month. This affects the percentage of water in the human body, which reaches 80% or more at that time. Therefore, the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam recommended cupping at this time due to the increase in blockages and compounds in the body, and in this case complete drainage is possible and open, and whenever the blood is removed by cupping at this time, fruit is obtained and healing occurs, God willing* .
