Cupping or Hijama has numerous health benefits. It can often be the cure for many health conditions including depression. It is a non-invasive therapy treatment which can help revitalise the body and mind and also help with leading a healthier lifestyle.
The Cupping Procedure and
What it Involves
During your Cupping session, our experienced Practitioner will go through a health assessment and find out from you, the patient, what you hope to achieve through cupping. Once this has been established, the practitioner will place suction cups along the parts of the body that require the treatment. You will feel a pinching sensation, this is due to the cups pulling the skin and encourage the blood flow to the cupping areas of your body.
Once there is enough blood flow the cups will be removed and small incisions will be made. This will feel like a tiny pinprick. The cups will be replaced back on the area and the suction will start to draw out the toxic blood. The whole process takes around 30-45 mins and after the session, you will feel re-energised and on your way to becoming a healthier person.

Sunnah Dates for Cupping (Hijama)
The Sunnah days for cupping (hijama) every month are when the 17th, 19th or 21 st of the Islamic, lunar month coincide with a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday. These are the best and most beneficial days for cupping (hijama).
If one is not able to be cupped on the 17th, 19th or 21st (coinciding with Monday, Tuesday or Thursday) then any Monday, Tuesday or Thursday of the month. The most beneficial days for cupping (hijama) after the Sunnah days are the closest Monday, Tuesday or Thursday to the 17th, 19th or 21st of the Islamic, lunar month and Allah knows best.
Anas ibn Maalik y reported that the Messenger r said,
“Whoever wants to perform cupping (hijama) then let him search for the 17th, 19th and 21st …”
[Saheeh Sunan ibn Maajah (3486)]
Ibn Umar y reported that the Messenger said,
“Cupping (hijama) on an empty stomach is best. In it is a cure and a blessing. It improves the intellect and the memory. So cup yourselves with the blessing of Allah on Thursday. Keep away from cupping (hijama) on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday to be safe. Perform cupping (hijama) on Monday and Tuesday for it is the day that Allah saved Ayoub from a trial. He was inflicted with the trial on Wednesday. You will not find leprosy except (by being cupped) on Wednesday or Wednesday night.”
[Saheeh Sunan ibn Maajah (3487)]
Ibn Umar y reported that the Messenger r said,
“Cupping (hijama) on an empty stomach* is best. It increases the intellect and improves the memory. It improves the memory of the one memorising. So whoever is going to be cupped then (let it be) on a Thursday in the name of Allah. Keep away from being cupped on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Be cupped on a Monday or Tuesday. Do not be cupped on a Wednesday because it is the day that Ayoub was befallen with a trial. You will not find leprosy except (by being cupped) on Wednesday or Wednesday night.”
[Saheeh Sunan ibn Maajah (3488)].
As for the Islamic day and night, the night enters before the day. So at sunset on Tuesday, Wednesday night comes in. Cupping (hijama) is best performed during the daytime between the adhaan of fajr and the adhaan of maghrib because yawm in arabic means daytime.

Hadiths About Sunnah Points
Abu Dawood narrated that Jabir Radi Allaho Anh said that Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) used Hijamah (wet cupping) on his hip because of a debilitation he suffered from.
Reported by Anas Radi Allaho Anh that (while in Ehraam), Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) took Hijamah on the top of his foot due to the pain in that area. Narrated by Abu Dawood.
Narrated by Ibn Majah, on the authority of Ali Radi Allaho Anh that angel JIBREEL advised Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam for Hijamah at Akhda’ain (posterior jugulars) and KAHIL (upper back ~ between the shoulders).
In Ghazwah Khyber while our beloved Prophet Muhammad s.a.w was poisoned, he took Hijamah at 3 points on the KAHIL, we feel that a cup was applied behind the heart (at the left of KAHIL), & the third was either a little bit lower to this point OR on the right side of KAHIL, Allah Knows the best.
Reported by Abdullah Bin Bujainah Radi Allaho Anh that Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) took Hijamah on the center of his head (Yafookh) and he was in Ehraam while his journey to Makkah. (Name of the place where they stopped is mentioned as Lahyi Jamal)
