  • 70% of diseases, pains and ailments are caused due to the blood being unable to reach certain places in the body. Dry cupping (hijama) and dry massaging cupping (hijama) allow the blood to reach these places. 

     

  • Each cup has a valve at the top with a valve bar. The suction handle (pikestaff) has a rubber muzzle at the end (this is the tip of the suction handle).
  • This muzzle is manually attached to the valve of the cup. The cup is then placed on the surface of the skin. The air in the cup is extracted using the suction handle/pump (pull rod). This forms a vacuum.
  • The suction handle can be detached from the cup.
  • The cup will remain attached to the surface of the skin due to the vacuum.
  • To release the cup, the rubber knob at the top of the cup is pulled to allow air back inside and thus releasing the cup.
  • The suction, extension tube allows self therapy for difficult to reach points on the body, for example points on the back. The tube is attached to the muzzle and valve of the cup at one end and the muzzle of the suction handle at the other end.
  • There are 4-16 acupressure magnets in each box. A magnet may be attached to the inside of the cup before applying the cup to the surface of the skin, for dry cupping (hijama) only. This increases the therapeutic effectiveness of cupping. The magnet may be inserted into the four largest-sized cups, sizes 1-4. Cup sizes five and six are too narrow and cannot be used with the acupressure magnets.
  • Dry and massage cupping may be self-administered in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Each cupping box is accompanied by an instruction booklet. Below are further instructions:
  • Dry Cupping
  • Place as many cups as required on and around the affected area, for example the area of pain, using the suction handle. Depending on the strength of the suction and the patient, the tensions can be made; light tension, medium tension and strong tension.
  • A magnet may be attached to the inside of the cups before applying the cups to the surface of the for dry cupping (hijama). The magnet may be inserted into the four largest-sized cups, sizes 1-4. Cup sizes five and six are too narrow and cannot be used with the acupressure magnets.
  • Leave for 5-10 minutes.
  • Release the cups.
  • Repeat daily until symptoms cease.
  • Massage Cupping
  • Apply a small amount of a vapour rub or mint oil (optional) and a generous amount of olive oil to the affected area.
  • Place 1 cup on the affected area using the suction handle (using 1 suction pull to form a very light grip of the cup).
  • Massage the affected area using the cup by moving it whilst it is attached to the surface of the skin.
  • re-apply olive oil if necessary.
  • Massage for 10 minutes or longer.
  • If the cup slips off, re-apply using the suction handle.
  • Repeat daily until symptoms cease.
  • The suction pump and extension tube maybe used for massage cupping (hijama).
  • Massaging the back daily for 10 minutes is very beneficial. It revitalises the organs and improves circulation. It is the equivalent of walking 2km.
  • After consulting a professional doctor, one should note the following:
  • children over one years old should be dry and massage cupped using a very light grip of the cups.
  • over 60’s should be dry and massage cupped using a very light grip of the cups.
  • pregnant women should avoid cupping during pregnancy except if they are over-due and wish to go into labour. In this case, they should have dry and massage cupping between the knee and ankle on both legs.
  • Dry and massage cupping may be performed on any day and at any time. They do not necessarily need one to have an empty stomach.
  • Wet Cupping
  • Important – It is recommended that wet cupping is only administered by a cupping therapist.
  • We will run cupping courses for wet cupping inshAllah. Please join our FREE newsletter and we will keep you updated inshAllah.

JazakAllah khair.
