ICAHT (Dec 2014) Diploma Class Graduate!

The following is an announcement by Dr Rizwhan Suleman MChiro of the Institute of Clinically Applied Hijama Therapy, an organisation providing Hijama Training in UK 


By the grace of God we have once again been honoured to present our most recent class of graduates their ICAHT Diploma in Clinically Applied Hijama therapy certificates on 30th August, 2015 after completing the newer, further loaded curriculum, consisting of more practical assessments, OSCE’s exams and additional hands on practical sessions then ever before.

A number of French based students, five doctors, some nurses, pharmacists, biomedical scientists, a physiotherapist and an array of non-medically qualified personalities who were looking to redirect their careers made up the class. Amongst them was also Mr Saada Chenine, an Algerian mathematician and senior university lecturer who had over 17 years of experience in practicing hijama and one of our youngest students to date Mr Jamaal Mirza at just 21 years old.

The class presented some of their case studies and shared many heart warming experiences of how the holistic application of the hijama health management model had impacted not only their lives but the lives of many of their patients. Its was an extraordinary experience to witness the level of  determination and commitment expressed by some members of the class. One particular individual who requires a notable mention was Mrs Nadia Toughrani from France who despite being pregnant and having to commute for the clinical placement and anatomy sessions, completed the course and all of its requirements with a outstanding results.

An overall best student certificate and prize was given to Sheikh Abdul Majid Iltaf who surpassed all previous classes attaining the highest results ever noted in an ICAHT Hijama diploma group. Below is a short clip of his presentation describing his experiences:


Together the tutors, graduating students and guests enjoyed a healthy dinner while listening to the remaining presentations and receiving further details on ICAHT memberships and practitioner insurance requirements post registration.

Although not all students presented their case presentations as promised (we will be as kind as to not mention any names!) there was a great feeling of enthusiasm from the class as a whole that lead us to believe that each and every student was ready to go and spread the message of the true, holistic health care model to each of their communities.

Finally votes were taken from all who attended to award the best presentation certificate which was given to our dear brother Saada Chenine from France, who gave a very detailed account of his case presentations and explained with great enthusiasm the various experiences that he had had.

The day closed with some group photos, some emotional farewells and a reminder that this is not the end of a learning journey but just the beginning and that the ICAHT family will always be in touch as we work together to achieve our bigger vision together: reviving the practice of hijama on a global scale, one community at a time.

Are you a hijama (cupping) therapist?

Are you a hijama (cupping) therapist? Quick question: Are you a hijama therapist, or do you know of a local hijama therapist in your part of the world? Reason for asking is two-fold: 1) Since starting this blog about a year ago to provide hijama-related information, we get many enquiries from different parts of the world, asking if we know their nearest local therapists. To date we are still trying to locate therapists in Bahrain, Kuwait and other parts of the world. If you can help, please email me on hijama.mail@gmail.com or leave a comment* below. 2) Secondly, there is a hijama directory being compiled at www.hijamadirectory.co to address this very issue, i.e. Have all therapists worldwide on one directory so people can easily locate their nearest therapist. To add your details to this directory, please fill the form at this link: http://www.hijamadirectory.co/new-therapists/15 MARCH, 2014: UPDATE : There is now an annual charge of £15 per entry to cover running and maintenance of the new map-based directory. Similarly if you are looking for a hijama therapist near you, please leave a comment* below with details of your location so other blog readers who may be able to help can reply […]

HijamaPlus Clinic now open in Small Health, Birmingham England

HijamaPlus Clinic now open in Small Health, Birmingham England by Faridah Elimy The following is a guest blog-post in the form of a written interview by Faridah Elimy, a female cupping therapist from Birmingham, England. Please give us a short introduction about yourself, and in particular how you ended up being a hijama therapist? Assalaam alikum. Since I was about 17 years old I had a keen interest in everything to do with complementary medicine. My father was a pharmacologist (developer of pharmaceutical drugs) ; I tried to look at the other side and become more and more enthusiastic about natural medicine. Then it became my dream to serve humanity and after I became Muslim to serve the Muslim Ummah in improving their health. Better health to me also means better quality of ‘ibadah. During the last 30 years I built up a large library about nutrition, herbal medicine, lifestyle, complementary medicine in general and specifically shiatsu, acupressure, kinesiology and related subjects. Because this is my passion I am continuously updating my knowledge. I came to the UK five years ago from the Netherlands looking for a more positive Islamic environment. When I discovered hijama I drew the conclusion that […]

A hijama experience from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

A hijama experience from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia- By Tara Umm Omar This is a guest-post in the form of a written interview with Tara Umm Omar, a hijama patient in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. – What condition did you suffer from? I experienced recurrent pain in the small of my back. – Where do you live and where did you go for the hijama therapy? I live in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. My friend cupped me in the privacy of her home. – What did the treatment involve? She cupped me in 9 hijama points: 1, 4, 5, 9, 10, 20, 21, 22, and 23. – What was the result?There was a point when I think my iron got low because I felt nauseous and as if I would faint. My friend stopped and reminded me to recite the Shahada, Surah Al-Ikhlas, Surah An-Nas, Surah Al-Falaq, Ayat Al-Kursi, the last 2 ayat of surah Al-Baqarah. I started to feel better immediately and this confirmed the healing power of the above soorat and ayat alhamdulillah. The next day I was energetic and have not experienced back pain until recently. The time between hijama and the returning pain was a little more than one […]
