Abu Yaqoob, a Hijama (Cupping) Therapist in Toronto, Canada

Abu Yaqoob, a Hijama (Cupping) Therapist in Toronto, Canada

This is a guest-post in the form of a written interview with Abu Yaqoob – a male cupping therapist based in Toronto, Canada.

– Please give us a short introduction about yourself:

As Salam Alaikum

Al Humdulillah I’ve learned Hijama(cupping) while I was in Egypt from a doctor of natural medicine, and have been helping people with this blessed practice for many years now.

I have my diploma in Natural health with horns, so if you are interested in Hijama please e-mail me abuyaqooob@yahoo.ca. I’m located in Toronto Canada.

– What particular illnesses/ conditions (if any), do you specialise / had the most experience in?

Praise be to Allah and peace and blessings be upon His messenger Muhammad.

Cupping is a blessed medicinal cure for the one who has faith in it, and is especially effective when they have faith in it from the start, and not as a last resort when all else fails as is the case with most people.

I have performed Cupping for many different ailments, but also being a natural health consultant I’ve found that the ones who try living a healthier lifestyle with regular cupping treatment will get the best results.

– And do you find that in your experience, the conditions/illnesses that you have come across respond well to cupping (hijama) therapy? And if so, what are they?

Well in my experience cupping is a very effective treatment for migraine headaches and high blood pressure, and a person can get cured with just one session, but can also be effective for one with knee or back injuries.

– Also what would you say about using cupping as a general preventative therapy (which by getting rid of bad blood/ toxins in the body may help prevent conditions like high cholesterol/ heart disease / cancer in the long term)? And how often would you recommend this (once a month? once/twice a year?)

The motto of most general natural health consultants is Health is wealth so don’t waste yours.

We must know that the companions of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon Him) were not a people who regularly ate to satiety, but these days people have the least bit of control over their stomachs and as a result causes a great many diseases in their bodies, so a healthy diet with regular fasting and exercise along with cupping especially on the recommended day of the month of the lunar calender i.e. 17, 19 21 will do a body a lot of good.

    Asalaamu alaikoum
    Brother, do you offer courses? I am in Windsor, ontario and subhonallah there are NO sisters who know how to do hijaamah. My husband would be with me of course, but I really don’t know how to get certified. I prefer having someone in person. I already am learning traditional chinese fire cupping, but my teacher is not muslim, this was the closest I could get at the moment.

    jazak allahu khairn.
    asalamu alaikoum
