… And announcing a new online resource for the therapy!
From my limited understanding over these past 3-4 years, I have now gathered that there are at least 2 very different reasons which Hijama therapy is used for:
* Preventative therapy.
* Removes bad blood, potential carcinogens, toxins, waste products and other “bad guys”, and as a result:
* Gets rid of Lethargy, loss of stamina etc.
2)- Treating Specific Illnesses / Conditions
* Asthma / Eczema
* Acne / Boils etc
Well a quick search on the internet brought me to a webpage which actually includes a third use (obvious really but I just saw it as part of 2 above, but really it classes as a separate use if you think about it):
* Neck-pain etc.
Comparing this with Acupuncture, the related therapy which we looked at in the last post, well acupuncture is probably also just as useful for treating specific conditions and relieving pain (2 and 3), however I think hijama is unique in the sense that it is the only alternative therapy (that I know so far, but I may of course be wrong!) that can also be called a detox, and not only that, I would go even as far as saying it’s “The Fastest Most-Direct Detox Known to Humankind!”
So, as a blogsite dedicated to finding out all there is to know about cupping, I have now refined my quest for information about hijamah along these three branches based on the above uses for the therapy (if you know of any other categories of use, please leave a comment):
1) General Preventative Annual Detox (if I can describe it like that!):
How often should this be done and what benefits are expected? From an Islamic viewpoint, I understand this can be done at least once or twice a year (bit like a car’s service really – every 6 months or 6000 miles!).
As far as the results are concerned: Does it remove/reduce bad blood, potential carcinogens, toxins, pesticides, waste products, cholesterol and other “bad guys”? If you are a therapist who can enlighten us about this particular aspect, please do so via a comment*, as with the ever-increasing toxins & carcinogens that are supposedly in our food and environment, I’m sure a lot of people out there would be grateful to learn of an effective detox therapy.
2) Treating Specific Illnesses:
Anecdotal evidence (which in plain English means: stories reported by people!) exists which seems to suggest that hijama therapy has been effective in treating many different diseases and conditions, including but not limited to : Asthma, Eczema, High Blood Pressure, Migraine etc.
If you are a therapist or a patient who can share your knowledge about this, again please do so via a comment*, as once again, we as cupping enthusiasts would want to know it’s success stories (ie which illnesses can be treated), as well as its limitations (ie which conditions can’t be treated).
Again there are reports of people treated for back-pain, neck-pain etc which is not necessarily from an illness but maybe from a fall, twist, sprain or trapped-nerve.
Again if you as a therapist or a patient have had experience in this category please share it with a comment*.
Finally if you are someone who has a condition, illness or pain and you want to know if it can be treated by cupping therapy, then please leave your question, again via a comment* and hopefully one of the handful of hijama therapists who are now subscribers to this blog will answer it for you.
Thank you for your help and I wish you tonnes of ££health, which is the ultimate $$wealth!
