“Hijamah” in Arabic literally means “to suck” and to “return to a normal state” of internal balance. Al-hajjaam is the name given to the cupper, and Hijaamah is the name given to this profession. Al-mihjam is the name given to the tool in which blood is collected, or to the knife used by the cupper.
Narrated by Anas ibn Maalik, may Allaah be pleased with him, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
“I did not pass by any group on the night when I was taken on the Night Journey (Isra’), but they said to me, ‘O Muhammad, tell your ummah to do cupping.’”
(Reported by Ibn Maajah; it has corroborating narrations which strengthens it).
Hijamah ultimately helps the body to create a balance, healthy alkaline environment by removing acidity. This fixes many ailments that the body has, by bringing it to its normal state. Hijama cupping therapy is a holistic, super powerful detox, which removes potentially toxic and stagnant blood from your body. It expels negative, unhealthy elements from the body, and allows it to replenish itself.
