Well it depends on the individual’s pain threshold; so far most of the patients we have treated did not feel pain. Some felt light pain and others felt very ticklish and they started to giggle/laugh, which we found a bit funny. The reason why they were laughing is because their skin is more sensitive. People build a huge mental image inside their head of a blade with red blood and they automatically feel scared. The best way we can describe the blade cuts is that it is not deep cuts, probably lighter than a paper cut and several small cuts are made on the surface of the skin. There is nothing to be scared of, we are sure there are people out there who are going through bigger pains in life.
Cupping Therapy gets rid of acidic toxic waste which accumulates in our bodies (blood stasis) as we grow older. Sources of toxic waste include the polluted air we breathe; toxic chemicals found in your food, water, drinks, household chemicals & toiletries; environmental waste in your neighborhood; intoxicating drinks, narcotic drugs, junk food and smoking; waste products of normal body metabolism; products of medicinal drugs metabolism; impact of trauma and accidents on our body; and toxins from mental stress, anger, anxiety and depression.
The blood stasis (stagnated or congested blood) slow down or block supply of blood via blood capillaries which deliver much needed oxygen, nutrients, water, mineral electrolyte, vitamins, enzymes, hormones and immune system cells & antibodies to your cells, tissues and organ.
The blockage also prevents the removal of carbon dioxide, metabolic waste products and toxic substance which are excreted via our urine, lungs and skin. As a result your cells, tissues, and organs cannot function at its normal healthy level and become progressively weak, inefficient, and easily overcome by germs. This would cause tissue or organ to malfunction and infection to take place.
Therefore you will experience symptoms of diseases such as aches and pain, numbness, fever, cough, stomach ache, constipation, diarrhea and headaches. If left untreated further accumulation of toxic waste may lead to serious chronic diseases including hypertension, ulcers, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer disease, migraine, heart disease, stroke and cancer.
Cupping is a very good preventive measure

Possible side effects are feeling light headed, sick/nausea (especially in the morning on an empty stomach), fainting/blackout due to lack of energy and temporary bruising. These cases are very rare and only occur if the patient is very unwell. Unlike the drugs, medicines and operations done by allopathy which will have side effects. The cupping therapy is free from any side effects. Except few marks which will come due to the stagnation of blood which will remain for few days.FAQ End here

Even though Hijama is a very simple procedure, it has dramatic effects. Our health and well-being are tied up with the immune system and are totally dependent on the flow of blood and Qi (energy) and body fluids like hormones and lymphatic fluid. Traditional medicine tells us that all pain is due to stagnation of these symptoms. The cups used in Hijama have a wonderful pulling power and this is a dramatic technique in reducing pain and enhancing the feeling of well-being.
Importance of the skin
Any topical stimulus that is directed to influence and manipulate the internal or external organs must start with the skin. The body’s first contact with the outside world is through the skin and it is true to say that the skin is the mirror of our health. If a person has good health, his or her skin will be shiny, tight and
smooth and will respond to temperature and will be warm when touched. The skin protects the body from pathogens and plays a role in a number of body functions. It is the main organ of sensation, through many millions of nerve endings contained in its structure.
The main fourteen channels with a direct link to the internal organs lie within the skin. When stimulating a particular point through Hijama, the organ’s blood and Qi is manipulated. In Chinese medicine the skin is directly controlled and influenced by the lungs. The lungs spread the Qi and fluids all over the body through the skin.
Blood
Blood is transformed from the essence of food produced through the functional activity of Qi that circulates through the blood vessels and nourishes the body tissue. Blood is derived from food and Qi and produced by the spleen. (Blood will be discussed in detail in the section about the anatomy of the body)
Qi
Qi is the invisible life force – like air and wind. The West tries to define Qi as ‘the energy of life’, ‘vital force’, ‘life force’, ‘energy’, but there is no Western equivalent. When we are ill we feel weak and have a low energy level but when we feel better we feel more energetic and much stronger. So we all experience the existence of Qi continuously. Movement of any kind requires Qi and often this is manifested as heat. Lack of energy is signified by cold.
When treating a disease at the Qi level, the external pathogen is still fighting at the skin and the body’s overall resistance is still good. Some clinical manifestations of this are a high fever, a cough with thin yellow phlegm, wheezing and thirst. Hijama treatment at this level is very effective.
Stagnation
Stagnation of body systems can be the result of lack of movement, injury, stress, a lack of blood, Qi or the invasion of cold into the body and joints. Cold drinks and foods or irregular feeding habits can also cause accumulation problems. All these impair the Spleen’s function of trans
Cupping heightens the efficiency of the immunity system in general and save us the trouble, and of the spoiled corpuscles and of the blood impurities. It reduces the blood viscosity, and raises its liquidity in a normal way without artificial induction, and the induction of bone marrows to produce more immunity cells.
This is what the lab studies have proved and were affirmed by our lab team. The spleen concentrates itself to practice its immunity role, and the systems of the body are rehabilitated, and heightened their capacities by cupping operation and in bettering the patient’s situation or a certain recovery of this malignant disease.
The cupping operation improves the eyesight resulting from insufficiency of perfusion and lesson clottinf of blood by removing the extra congestive blood and eventually it lessons brain clots, and in reducing arterial pressure, it lessens occurrence of brain hemorrhage, and in strengthening immunity, it also lessens occurrence of neuro-immunity lesions. In no doubt, science will discover other advantages for cupping in advance of time to show that it is an excellent helpful device in treating a number of diseases.
