Cupping (Hijama in Arabic) is an ancient method of treatment, where blood is drawn by vacuum from a small skin incision.

It is also an authentic tradition of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that has been used throughout history. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

“The best medicine with which you treat yourselves is cupping, or it is one of the best of your medicines.” Al-Bukhari (5263) and Muslim (2952)

This non-surgical procedure draws out excessive toxic blood from specific points on the body where the cups are applied for each illness and may reduce ailment without any side-effects.

Cupping is performed in several steps and the common Sunnah points for cupping are on the upper back between the shoulder blades. It has numerous benefits and effectively cures digestive problems, joint and muscle pain, fever, skin problems, asthma, depression, low fertility etc. It is extremely important to get cupping done by one who is experienced and that they use instruments that are properly cleaned and sterilized.
