Hijama cupping is a spiritual, religious, natural, holistic means of detoxification, healing, and pain management. It does not involve examination, diagnosis, or treatment of any mental or physical illness or disease, or prescription medication of any kind. Hijama-Relief considers Hijama an act of worship as recommended practice in the Muslim Faith, stated and established in over 77 different Hadith. Yet, with open heart, hand and mind we accept clients from all different backgrounds with full respect, honor and dignity.
Certified Hijama Practitioner is not a Licensed Medical Doctor, Licensed Acupuncturist, Massage Therapist, or any other Medical/Health Professional. We do not diagnose, treat, or cure clients and we do not prescribe any medications to clients. We are not qualified or licensed in the field of nutrition, herbs and/ or fitness. Clients should consult with their Licensed Physician before reducing, weaning off, or stopping prescribed medications even if they feel better.
As Hijama practitioners, We do not practice medicine. More specifically, We do not examine, diagnose, treat, offer to treat, cure, or attempt to cure any physical or mental disease or disorder, or any physical deformity or injury. Again, We do not prescribe any drugs or medications or recommend a change in dosage or discontinuation of any prescribed drug or medication. If you have a health emergency or are in need of any medical treatment or opinion, you should consult ONLY with your Primary Care Physician.
Skin discoloration is an Ecchymosis, not a Hematoma, created by cupping. It is caused by increased blood circulation and vasodilation of the blood vessels subcutaneously (due to the negative pressure applied by the cups.)
We do not practice Surgical, Medical or Emergency Cupping Therapy.
We intentionally refrain from posting pictures of Hijama Blood on our website out of respect for our Hemophobic clients.
