Hijama is an alternative health treatment that spans more than a thousand years of history. It has been practiced in various forms and under different names throughout parts of the West, Middle East and the Far East.
This ancient art has a special place in the history and culture of Islam - it is reported that The Prophet (pbuh) said “Indeed the best of remedies you have is Hijama, and if there was something excellent to be used as a remedy then it is Hijama.” The treatment is however not only believers; everyone can benefit from Hijama’s healing effects and notice the improvement it will have on their health.
How Hijama Works
Hijama draws blood from the body, with the intention of clearing toxins and improving health.
This is done by using specially made cups, that draw the blood to a specific area of the body. Small incisions are made that then allow the blood to flow into the cups, removing harmful blood and restoring health.
At Hijama Hut, we only practise Hijama with completely sterile cups to ensure a safe treatment.
By performing Hijama on those parts of the body where you experience pain or adverse health, it is possible to not only improve your ailments, with enough time it may even be cured.
Hijama has been shown to be effective for a variety of health problems, with a number of studies showing improvements in the following areas:
- Detox treatments

At Hijama Hut we practise this art using modern, sterilised equipment. We strive to create an environment that is calm and neutral. I am also fully qualified in hijama, and have also studied anatomy.
