Hijama Therapy Available at SA Wellness Centre

What is Hijama?

Hijama Therapy, also known as wet cupping therapy, is a technique used by practitioners around the world to treat a variety of health conditions.

Hijama Therapy involves placing cups on the skin to create suction, which is believed to promote blood flow, reduce inflammation, and enhance relaxation and well-being. This technique is used to treat muscle pain, tension, and other ailments by encouraging the body’s natural healing processes.

In Hijama Therapy, the suction created by the cups draws blood to the surface of the skin, which helps to improve circulation and release muscle tension. This can assist in relieving pain and promoting overall health.

What Can Hijama Therapy Do For You?

You may have heard of Hijama Therapy before but may still be unsure whether this technique is right for you. Will it hurt? How does it work? Is Hijama Therapy the same as other cupping methods?

These are common questions asked by patients when Hijama Therapy is suggested as treatment. Read on to find out the answers to these questions and familiarize yourself with the technique so that the next time it is recommended, you won’t hesitate to try it!

How fast are the benefits noticed?
Some patients experience relief and improved well-being almost instantly after a session.

Will it hurt when the cups are applied?
The sensation can vary. Some people feel a slight tugging or pressure as the cups create suction, but it is generally not painful.

Is Hijama Therapy the same as other cupping methods?

Hijama Therapy is a specific form of cupping that involves making small, superficial incisions on the skin before applying the cups to draw out a small amount of blood. This method is often used for detoxification and to treat various ailments.
Other cupping methods, such as dry cupping, do not involve incisions and focus primarily on creating suction to improve circulation and relieve muscle tension.

What are the side effects?
Some patients may experience mild soreness or bruising at the site where the cups were applied. These effects are usually minor and disappear within a few days.
