This is a guest-post in the form of a written interview with Umm Ayub about her experience of hijama therapy in London, England.
– What condition did you suffer from (if any)?
I don’t suffer nor do I have any health problems (Alhamdulillah) but I came across Hijama from a friend who highly praised the outcome of performing Hijama. This allowed me to embark on a journey of tracking down a therapist and I came across Sister Anisa Kissoon of Natural Health Natures Finest
– Where do you live and where did you go for the hijama therapy?
I reside in London (UK). For my first ever Hijama as stated I went to Sister Anisa Kissoon of Natural Health Natures Finest, it was performed in her house which is converted into a clinic, and had a rather large living room to accommodate many people, it was quite nice because the therapist explained every stage in detail prior to performing anything and also gave us a brief introduction on nutrition.
– What did the treatment involve?
The treatment involved learning about and carrying out wet-cupping on the main general spot on the back of the neck and learning the reasons why we should perform there.
– What was the result?
I felt some pain on my neck, the similitude of a graze, then a little faint. But after some light snack and drink I felt much better.
But I realised that night that I slept quite well and felt a little energetic throughout that month.
– What was your overall impression of the therapist and her practice?
The therapist was amazing, as she possessed a lot of knowledge in relation to her field and an added bonus was the aspect of health and fitness which she briefly explained. She left a lasting impression on all of us. I still call her till this date if I am in doubt, and Mashallah she is always at hand to reply to our concerns.
– How did the therapist get to learn hijama therapy (was it a course she attended or was it something handed down from generation to generation in their family)?
What amazed us all was the concept behind why she and her family wanted to build www.nhnf.co.uk . She suffered from health problems and medicine and other means of curing oneself did not work for her and she therefore started searching for answers and found Hijama, but what was more surprising and unique is that she truly wanted to revive the Sunnah of the Prophet (saw). And it is evident now in the UK (in London to be specific) that their work has not gone to waste and they are slowly but surely reviving the Sunnah by providing people with the key by which they can open many doors. With regards to what courses she has attended or undertaken, as far as I know the sister is fully qualified and is now running yearly professional, accredited courses in Hijama which can be viewed on their website www.nhnf.co.uk .
