This traditional, time-honoured treatment remains favoured by millions of people worldwide because it's safe, comfortable and remarkably effective for many health disorders. Cupping (Hijama Therapy) is a marvelous procedure for eliminating stagnation and improving blood flow, especially in the back. The practitioner creates suction in a cup; the skin gets sucked up and rises under the cup as blood rushes up. Cupping is an ancient practice that has become increasingly available to the public. Although, it recently gained publicity in the western world and the United States, cupping is one of the most famous medical recommendations of Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam). This book is an in-depth study of the medical importance of this great missing Prophetic recommendation that is found to be in perfect accord with modern medical science. It identifies and treats the basic tenets of this true faith in the light of current knowledge. It is written with the general as well as the specialized reader in mind. The book was inspired from my Islamic and my scientific background and therefore, it has two characters: a religious and a scientific one. Many cupping practitioners had reported that the most important mode of action in cupping is regarded to be the balance and improvement of immunity. However, studies in this area were mostly clinical observations and there was no specific research regarding the mechanism by which cupping therapy exerts its effect as an immune modifier.
Good book for people who want to learn the basics of hijama. Maybe a little too much history but still interesting. I suggest you buy it if you are new to hijama
