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 or leave a comment* below. 2) Secondly, there is a hijama directory being compiled at 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: 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 […]

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 […]
