Hijama

Health Sanctum CuppingCupping

Hijama or cupping is a historical therapy which dates back to Egyptian times.

Ancient Egyptians were the first to use cupping therapy systematically. ‘Ebers papyrus’, thought to be the oldest medical textbook approximately 1550 B.C., in Egypt, describes bleeding by cupping in order to remove stagnation and toxins from the body. The Egyptians used therapeutic cupping shown by drawings on the walls of their tombs and temples.

Types of Hijama (cupping)

Dry Hijama (cupping)

This is a process in which a cup is placed on specific areas of the body and negative pressure (vacuum) applied in order to collect the blood in that area without incisions.
