What is Hijama?

Hijama in Arabic means, “SUCKING” the stagnated or toxic blood. Hijama is a clinical, therapeutic, curative and spiritual practice involving the use of hollow, rounded utensils called “cups”, small surgical blades and a hand-held piece of equipment known as a “pump”. These are used to draw toxins from the body, stretch out muscles, relieve pressure in the blood vessels and stimulate the immune system.

Why fast 3 hours prior to Hijama?

At MN Hijama Therapy, we ask on whom Hijama is being done, to refrain from eating or drinking (beverages) for approximately three hours before performing Hijama (Cupping) treatment. The reason is to understand that the human body increases blood flow to the digestive system via the superior mesenteric artery in order to help break the food down, which results in less blood flow to the other bodily tissues. When there is less or no food the body is now redirecting blood from the digestive tract to areas where repairing of tissues is needed. Fasting allows the moving of cholesterol deposits that aligns with blood vessels thus allowing by removing an excess amount along with other toxins during Hijama (Cupping) treatment. This enables to improve the effectiveness in the treatment plan by understanding the fasting issue which then addresses the health of each patient into consideration.
