Hijamah in Pakistan

The following is a guest blog-post by Dr Sajid Ayub, a male Hijama Practitioner in Pakistan

Please give us a short introduction about yourself, and in particular how you ended up being a hijama therapist?
All thanks to Allah who enabled me to learn Hijamah and granted me the opportunity to practice it as well and peace and blessings upon the Prophet(p.b.u.h) who was sent as a mercy for the worlds and brought physical and spiritual healing for mankind.

I am grateful to Dr. Hashim (American Board certified gastroenteritis) from whom I learned Hijamah. Dr. Hashim is a skilled practitioner who has learned both Hijamah and acupuncture in China.
Likewise, I benefited from Dr. Amjad Ahsan Ali, MBBS.(PAK), MRCP, (UK). He practices Hijamah in Madrasah Ibn’ Abbas, (Karachi), and is an expert in this field.
– What particular illnesses/ conditions (if any), do you specialise / had the most experience in?
– 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?
Any treatment may cure some people completely, some partially, some temporarily and some don’t benefit. Shifa is from Allah. Following is a list of diseases which Hijamah has proved effective in curing in most cases.
1.Headaches    2.Tension headaches     3.Depression    4.Migraine    5.Shoulder aches    6.Kidney pain    7.Blood pressure    8.Dizziness    9.Tinnitus    10.Backache
11Varicose veins    12.Pain in the heel    13.Legs pains    14.Psychiatric illnesses

15.Black Magic    16.Leucoderma    17.Knee pains    18.Allergies

– 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?)
If the patient is not cured by one Hijamah then Hijamah may be repeated from three to seven times with a gap of at least two weeks to one month between consecutive cupping. This should be decided according to the doctor’s advice
– 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)?
As a Hijamah therapist I himself Hijamah differexnt times and I done every on 17th of the lunar month. My wife,Father,and Brothers do the Hijama treatment for me.
– What is the status and overall prevalance of hijama therapy in your city and  country ? Is it 
Hijamah is an ancient and most beneficial mode of treatment. But our country hospitals and clinics are not practices Hijamah.
– Whereabouts is your clinic or practice located and what services do you offer?
Our Clinics are in Pakistan differents cities like Our main office is in Karachi, our Branches in Raiwind Near about Tablighi markaz, Rawalpindi , Peshawar and Abbotabad.

– Is there anything else you would like to add?

Hijamah is the Sunnah of the Prophet(p.b.u.h) and most effective treatment. The Prophet(p.b.u.h) himself was treated with Hijamah and encouraged others to do so.
