After the last post which was a written interview with a hijama therapist, below is a written interview about a patient of hijama therapy… and a short introduction to a hijama therapist specialising in pain! :
“My husband’s recent experience of Hijama (Cupping) Therapy”. – By Ameela Farooq from West Yorkshire
What condition does your husband suffer from?
My husband suffers from headache, shoulder and neck pain and a condition called tinnitus.
Where do you live and where did you go for the hijama therapy?
My husband and I live in West Yorkshire and went to Birmingham to see Dr Nagi – we have been twice now.
What did the treatment involve?
Dr Nagi recommended cupping on the top of the head and shoulder area. I was quite surprised at just how little blood came from the shoulder area, and it seemed very thin? However, on the head, quite a lot of congealed blood came out.
What was the result?
My husband felt relief on the head, the headaches went for maybe 5 weeks and then seemed to return. The tinnitus which is gushing sounds in the ear, its actually something to do with the circulation of blood, really didn’t improve. Dr. Nagi did say when we left that, he expected the headaches to stop and the noise to improve. Fortunately the headaches did stop but the tinnitus remained. Really there has been no difference in regards to the neck or shoulder area, the pain did not decrease.
What was your overall impression of the therapist and his practice?
Dr Nagi is a helpful and pleasant person, but very busy and appointments are limited. Hygiene was excellent, and he has a nice consultation room. He is very specific regarding what type of hijamah he does, which is basically, the top of the head and shoulder, which is what my husband needed.
How long did the treatment last and how much did it cost?
The initial appointment lasted about 2 hours and the second appointment about 15 minutes. The charge is £30.00.
Overall impression of the therapy?
It has been a beneficial experience, but we are hoping to find someone more local. It was quite a long day driving from West Yorkshire to Birmingham.
