Hijama in Bolton, England by Darul Hijama Cupping Therapy Clinic

Hijama in Bolton, England by Darul Hijama Cupping Therapy Clinic
The following is a guest blog-post in the form of a written interview with Sabina Patel, a female cupping therapist from Bolton, England


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


My name is Sabina. The Hijama subject was addressed through a family friend few years back. Alhumdulillah having done Islamic studies (Alima), I had already heard of the practice but wasn’t sure if it was practiced in the UK. This encouraged me to learn more. I started doing a lot of research. To know that you can help someone through a Sunnah was very pleasing to the heart therefore I decided to complete the course on hijama. I studied very close with  a Unani herbalist and hijama practitioner with many years of experience. I completed a thorough course in UK covering and incorporating health & lifestyle, anatomy, science, history, Islamic medicine, holistic/alternative medicine & much more, exactly what I wanted. 2 years on, I have Alhumdulillah cupped over hundreds of patients throughout the country by doing mobile cupping and now Alhumdulillah opened my first hijama clinic in Bolton – Darul Hijama Cupping Therapy.


– What particular illnesses/ conditions (if any), do you specialise / had the most experience in?
Hijama treats almost any condition however the most common illness I have dealt with is backaches, migraine, blood pressure, diabetes, sciatica, infertility, mental health issues, poor blood circulation and some come just to revive the sunnah (general health & wellbeing)



– 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?
Yes most definitely, cupping has been used successfully for numerous diseases. The drawing of toxins from the body instantly helps the body regain its energy and stability. Hijama is not just a reactionary medicine for a disease, it is actually a preventative measure that prevents diseases. Hijama helps to remove impurities and stimulates the bone marrow to produce new, healthier blood. It cleanses on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level and leaves the patient feeling refreshed and energized.


– Do you have any interesting case-studies that you can briefly share with us from your hijama treatments? 
I had been asked to perform cupping on a patient with Hepatitis C – alhumdulillah, after a few sessions throughout the year, she had her last blood tests done few weeks back and came back all clear! Amazing subhanAllah
Also patients who suffer from migraines, instant relief for a lot of them and majority have had no migraines since the end of their treatment.
– Also what would you say about using cupping as a general preventative therapy and how often would you recommend this (once a month? once/twice a year?)
Its an excellent body cleanser. once a month for the first three months if the health issue needs more attention. For general health and wellbeing, every four to six months would be fine, more than this would cause no harm.

– 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 am always on the go, so I do have hijama done every 6 -8 weeks. This keeps me on my toes, more relaxed, feeling fresh and rejuvenated. I have another female practitioner to perform my cupping, if she is unavailable then my husband gets the go ahead! He’s finished his course too so Alhumdulillah I have nothing to worry about.
