Hijama Therapy - Process and its Significance
There are many ancient medical practices that have been forgotten over time, but Hijama has endured and is here to stay. Hijama dates back to the times of Prophet Mohammed, and believers claim that he used it on himself and his followers to help them ease pain. However, not many in the modern world are aware of this practice.
Hijama uses a special technique known as cupping in modern day terms. The therapy reduces or relieves tension. This unique therapy needs to be administered by a certified Hijama practitioner with the help of specially sculpted Hijama cups, either wet or warm. They are plunged and attached on to a spot of discomfort. After a few minutes, these cups are removed leaving a small brushing or irritation on the skin that vanishes within minutes.
These cups are often warmed with the help of a steaming container or made wet with warm or boiling water. They are left to cool for a few seconds before being thrust on the skin. The cup is sealed against the skin and this creates a fog-like moisture cloud inside the cup. This is quite a delightful sight while your skin feels caressed and warm under the cup.
As these cups can be placed anywhere on the body to release tension, it can be used for any ailment. If you have a cold, placing these cups on the cheeks or your lungs can increase blood circulation and make your skin glow while you breathe easy. In the case of inflammation, the Hijama cups can alleviate it right from the affected tissues, causing them to take their normal form and increase mobility. Everyday ailments like headaches, menstrual cramps, dental pain, back pain and sciatica can be cured with a few sessions of Hijama. With current hectic modern lifestyle, most people suffer from gastrointestinal disorders. Hijama on the spinal nerves can help strengthen the digestive system and respiratory system and bring relief from the symptoms and also offer pain relief.
The process of Hijama leaves traces of irritation or swelling around the cup edges due to their suction effect. However, this vanishes within a few minutes of the treatment. In the case of toxin build-up, blood is extracted from the tissues and veins to ensure no poison spreads to other parts of the body. This is a painless process but removing the cups might cause some amount of discomfort for a few moments.
While unorthodox, Hijama can provide relief from a number of recurrent ailments. Always consult a certified practitioner to find out if it can help you.
