Hijama benefits

The strengthening and stimulating effects of Hijama therapy make it successful in treating the following conditions: 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, emotional problems, depression and much more.

Although there is no documented evidence that hijama cures cancer, it is known to dramatically improve the condition of the patient. Some practitioners use it to rebalance energy in the body that has been blocked by certain tumours. Hijama is effective for undoing the damage done to patients by conventional therapies of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. During chemotherapy the immune system is depleted and Hijama helps repair the immune system and strengthens it to withstand further attack.
Traditional medicine tells us that all pain is due to stagnation of blood and Qi. The cups used in Hijama create a wonderful pulling power that reduces pain and enhances the mobilization of the immune system, stagnated blood. Hijama therapy is effective in treating some clinical manifestations of external pathogens that are fighting at the level of the skin. Symptoms like high fever, a cough with thin yellow phlegm, wheezing and thirst are helped with Hijama. It also relieves the symptoms associated with stagnation of body systems and fluids that can be the result of lack of movement, injury, stress, lack of blood, or the invasion of cold into the body and joints. Hijama can be applied to specific dysfunctional points of the body like what is done in acupuncture. After a short time the patient will feel warmth and pain will be reduced. Hijama benefits to releases toxins with minimal additional stress to internal organs and it directly de-acidifies tissues, enhances blood circulation, stimulates the immune system and reduces stress as it releases chemicals in the brain that reduce stress and depression. It also facilitates a sufficient flow of nutrition to the affected tissues and stimulates the flow of blood and lymph and so improves blood and lymph flow, and activates the function of the organs.
Performing Hijama on the corresponding organ points is used to treat disorders such as liver and kidney problems, respiratory diseases, digestive disorders and some gynaecological disorders. It can also be used to treat muscle spasms especially in the back. It is useful in treating painful joints, stomach ache, vomiting and diarrhoea. Since Hijama stimulates the flow of blood it helps to treat blood stagnation, poor circulation, and asthmatic conditions.
Dr. Katase from Osaka University maintained that Hijama influences the composition of blood as it increases red and white blood cells and changes acid blood into alkaline or neutral blood thereby leading to the purification of blood. It also purifies the body of accumulated irritants that cause inflammation. Recent studies indicate that having Hijama done at specific points on the back increases immunity by increasing the white blood cell counts. In addition to enhancing the body’s defences, Hijama regulates blood circulation throughout the entire body. The pull of low pressure Hijama therapy activates the blood vessels within the muscles. The expansion of the blood vessels in the muscles facilitates the flow of blood and has a remarkable effect on stiff shoulder. Pain relief, intestinal disorders
Hijama relieves pain, especially that which is related to headache, menstrual cramps, dental pain, tennis elbow, muscle pain, low back pain and sciatica. Many rheumatic disorders simply disappear after just a few sessions. By supplying more oxygen, hormones and essential enzymes to local tissues and joints, Hijama keeps local tissues warm, thus increasing elasticity and flexibility in muscles and joints. It relieves muscle spasms and stiffness in muscular tissue and is effective for chronic joint rheumatism as it facilitates the flow of blood to the joints. It also removes congested blood and solves problems that can not be solved with acupuncture. It has been found that Hijama along with acupuncture is an effective treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Hijama is also recommended for the treatment of lung diseases, especially chronic cough, pleurisy, bronchial congestion and asthma. Dry cupping stimulates the insides of the stomach and spleen, facilitating their movement and secretion of digestive fluids and thus, strengthens the power of digestion, the absorption of nourishment and the power of secretion. It relieves chronic gastroenteritis and constipation.
