How Does Hijama Work?

The blood taken out during hijama comes out through small capillaries in the skin. This blood is considerably more toxic than blood taken out from your veins. When hijama cupping is administered the body begins a healing process as it thinks it has been injured and so releases more white blood cells which boosts the immune system. By expelling toxins the body is able to rebalance itself and get back to homeostatic state.


Hijama Cupping-

· Helps tissues release toxins

· De-acidifies tissue directly when it is applied to that area

· Enhances the blood circulation by releasing stagnant blood

· Stimulates the immune system

· Reduces stress which is a major cause in illness

· Stimulates the flow of blood and lymph in the affected area
