  •   Avoid eating for 3-4 hours prior. You must not be fasting for longer than 3-4 hours. You must NOT skip any meals.
  •   If you feel very thirsty you can drink water little bit.
  •   All patients must arrive at least 15-20 minutes’ prior for preparation and to fill out forms.
  •   If you have any illness or take any medication, please inform well in advance.
  •   Patient should provide their complete medical history and any recent or long term illness.
  •   Please inform us if you are allergic to anything, especially latex, alcohol or Iodine.
  •   Please inform us in advance if you take Aspirin or any blood thinner of any strength or quantity.
  •   Please inform us if you have a history of Vasovagal, easy fainting when giving or seeing blood or if you have lost conscious / fainted in the past.
  •   Consult with your healthcare professional regarding cupping / Hijama if you have any health conditions.
  •   Take a brief warm bath with the niyyah of ghusul, before Hijama to stimulate blood circulation and promote release of blood stasis.
  •   Refrain from sexual intercourse or any exhausting activity before Hijama.
  •   Wear something comfortable to be able to easily change into a patient gown.
  •   If you suspect that you are afflicted with black magic or jinn please let us know before arriving so that we can come up with a proper plan of treatment with you.
  •   Pray two rakkat ‘Salat-ul-Hajja’ and make dua to Allah to give you shifa through this Sunnah remedy.
  •   Hijama is a spiritual treatment not a medical treatment; so have firm belief that success is in adapting the way of Prophet (saw).

After Hijama Treatment

  •   Resume eating with-in one hour after the Hijama in moderation. Drink plenty of fluids right after Hijama.
  •   Stay active for at least next 4 hours.
  •   NEVER sleep or rest after cupping as newly dislodged living and dead blood cells could result in clotting.
  •   Refrain from showering immediately and don’t scrub the wound site for several days. Some itchiness is expected. Scratching should be avoided as it will contribute to scaring or infection.
  •   You must change your bandage daily or as needed until the wound has completely healed.
  •   Red marks from the cupping normally fade within a week, depending on skin type. Do not scratch the cupped areas.
  •   The small shallow scratches that are necessary to extract the dead blood cells may take a few weeks to heal. In some cases faded tiny lines of scarring may persist.
