"Herbs and Hakim" Hijama centre in Pune city, Maharashtra, India

“Herbs and Hakim” Hijama centre in Pune city, Maharashtra, India by Dr. Ghazala Mulla

The following is a guest blog-post in the form of a written interview by Dr. Ghazala Mulla, a female cupping therapist from Pune, Maharashtra, India

Please give us a short introduction about yourself, and in particular how you ended up being a hijama therapist?

My name is Dr. Ghazala Mulla. I am a BUMS doctor,i.e.Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery. I am Associate professor in the subject of Physiology in a Unani Medical College and teaching Physiology for last twelve years. It is four and half years course of Pune University. As a part of our syllabus we studied all herbal medicine as well as Tib-e-Nabwi. We have a complete course on Regimenal Therapies which include Massage, Cupping, Leeching, blood letting, steam bath therapy and so on. In our course we have to study every detail about Hijjama. We have very old classical literature on Hijjama. Since last two years myself with my two friends Dr. Ajmal and Dr. Sufiyan have started Hijjama Therapy in Pune. In India people don’t have much knowledge about Hijjama and particularly where we have started our center. We are trying our best to popularised this therapy in Pune city as well as in Maharashtra.

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

We specialize in Arthritis, low back pain, Schiatica and all Chronic disorders. We do dry Hijjama in patient of low back pain, Sciatica, frozen shoulder, cervical spondylosis etc.

– 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?

Low back ache, frozen shoulder, cervical spondylosis and sciatica respond well to Hijjama therapy.

As a hijama therapist, how often do you get hijama done yourself, and what for (if any specific condition) and who do you go to to get it done (since it is not an easy therapy to self-administer)?

I have not undergone myself for Hijjama therapy as no lady doctor is available to do the Hijjama therapy in Pune city. But I would like to get it done with a lady therapist.

What is the overall prevalance of hijama therapy in Pune / Maharashtra, India? Is it available in hospitals and clinics as a valid alternative / sunnah therapy ?

People of Pune are not aware of Hijama TherapyIn Maharashtra also people dont know about Hijama Tharapy. The therapy is not available in hospitals as a valid altenative therapy.

– Whereabouts is your clinic or practice located?

Herbs and Hakim Unani Regimenal Center,
134.M.G.Road,Camp,Pune 411001,Maharashtra,India

Is there anything else you would like to add?

It is my wish to spread the knowldge of Hijjama Therapy to people of Pune as well as Maharashtra,and we would like to train as many doctors as possible as Hijjama Therapist.

I thank your kind self for giving me an opportunity to let you people know about myself and about Herbs and Hakim.

Jazak Allah Khair.
