The Arabian therapy of wet cupping, better known as Hijama dates back to hundreds of years. Known to be beneficial at multiple levels, the therapy is often used as a way to heal different ailments in the body. At the same time, it is quite effective in healing the mind and the soul.
Cupping or Hijama therapy is a lot older than you think. While it was made famous by Prophet Mohammad during his time in Arab, a lot of cultures like Greek, Turkish, Indian, and Chinese before him also had something to do on the similar lines. However, these cultures didn't make it a practice to ask their people to get this therapy done on their body, in order to experience holistic health benefits. On the other hand, in Islamic culture, doing Hijama is not only advantageous for body, but is always a way to follow one of the Sunnahs of the Prophet. The combination of these benefits has made this therapy very popular in the modern times and there are a lot of people, especially Muslims, who get this therapy done on their body at a Hijama clinic in UK or in any other location depending on their convenience.
