Alhumdulillah by the grace of Allah, I found Hijama Nation and decided to embark upon their course. During my course with Hijama Nation, Alhumdulillah I have gained a great deal in terms of the history of hijama and where it originated. I was fascinated to know that cupping was once widespread throughout the whole of Europe and Asia and dates back all the way to ancient Egyptians, Greeks and the Chinese. I was also interested in the ruqyah and metaphysical links to hijama and have begun to incorporate the recitation of ruqyah ayahs whilst performing hijama on my patients. There is much shifaa in the words of Allah swt and I felt this was very important.
During the course, I gained a better understand into the physiology and anatomy of the human body and this allows a better grasp of human disease and the organs affected. This effectively allows to assess the patient’s needs better and provide a suitable treatment plan. Certain diseases and their correlating hijama points is interesting and is something that will always be referred to before each consultation and treatment along with the benefits of sunnah points. My understanding of the lunar cycle and its effects on hijama therapy is something new to me and I have realized the importance now of trying to adhere where possible to treatments being performed during the mid month time.
Its been a wonderful experience for me and I have gained so much understanding, I plan to study more hijama related literature in the near future and hope and pray to become more skilled and proficient through experience. My practical day with hijama nation allowed me to gain the skill of cupping and ensuring the procedure is done with patient care being our fundamental concern.
As a hijama therapist, there is so much pleasure and satisfaction when people return to you pleased and to see how their lives have improved. I always remind my patients that your treatment was from a sunnah and it is Allah who cures. I fear for them to associate their relief to me rather than the all powerful , one of Allah’s attributes (Al Shaafi – the healer).
I like to also advise every patient that has received cure from hijama, to think of it as a kick start to a new way of life that involves more spirituality and worship. A better and healthier diet and a more active lifestyle.
