The Hijama Directory has now been 10% upgraded to the new map-based Directory

The Hijama Directory has now been 10% upgraded to the new map-based Directory

As you might be aware, we have been compiling a simple Hijama Directory at since November, 2009 after we started receiving requests from blog subscribers asking for the location and information of their nearest therapists.

Over the past 4 years we have gradually had almost 500 therapists registering on the Directory from different parts of the world, and after running some recent surveys with blog-subscribers as well as the therapists themselves, the conclusion was the directory was now due for an upgrade. 

In the past few months we have been experimenting with a new map-based directory format at and last month, when we finally reached our limit on the old directory of 500 entries, we have started upgrading all the therapists to the new Directory.

So far we have upgraded about 10% (ie 50 therapists) to the new directory, so please try out the new Directory and give us your feedback. In particular if you can try the "My Nearest Therapist" feature at the following link to see if it works for your location:

This page should automatically show you your nearest therapists based on your current location provided your location is known to your browsing platform

Let us know what information you need about your local therapists and we will make sure the entries are updated with the required information, for example:

Do you feel it is important to know:
- Your local therapist's location on a map
- Whether they have male and female therapists
- What languages they speak
- What qualifications they have in Hijama and any other relevant/ medical qualifications
- How much experience they have in Hijama
- Their contact details (email address and telephone number and website if any)
- Their opening times
- Any other details that you feel are important

Please let us have this feedback by leaving a comment below so that we can try to improve the new directory even further

And if you are a Hijama Therapist and wish to enter or upgrade your details onto the new directory please fill in your details at this link:

Please note: there is a nominal annual entry fee of £15 per year (equating to £1.25 per month or £5 every 3 months) to cover hosting, maintaining and running costs of the new Directory (this is subject to revision from time to time to reflect the input and resources required to run the Directory, please visit the above link to see current pricing )

And finally, if you are a hijama patient treated by your local therapist who you would like to recommend to others in your part of the world, please feel free to leave a testimonial about them via a comment* below.

Hijama in Manchester, England by Aaminah Rahman

The following is a guest blog-post by Aaminah Rahman, a female Hijama Practitioner in Manchester, England

- Please give us a short introduction about yourself, and in particular how you ended up being a
hijama therapist?

My name is Aaminah and I am a mother to three children. I have a background of Health and Social care.  During my studies I became very interested in alternative medicines and remedies, healthy nutrition and diets as opposed to constantly taking tablets and running to the GP for every symptom. During my research I came across Hijama, which I found fascinating and was very much intrigued by the fact that when practiced properly and in accordance with recommended days, could cure most diseases and medical conditions.

My mother became very ill with continuous back pain and just one foot swelling when she stood on it for even a short period of time. She had countless visits to her GP, blood tests, x-rays, scans all of which were inconclusive. Three different types of antibiotics were prescribed each course getting stronger and each to no effect. Eventually after much persuasion my mother agreed to have a cupping treatment and alhamdulilah the results were amazing after just three treatments my mother’s leg has vastly improved and she can stand and walk with much more ease. This response further evoked my motivation to study hijama therapy.

I have recently undergone the Hijama course and alhamdulilah I am now a qualified and certified therapist.

- What particular illnesses/ conditions (if any), do you specialise / had the most experience in? And do you find that in your experience, the conditions/illnesses that you have come across respond well to cupping (hijama) therapy? And if so, what are they?

So far the patients which I have come across have been interested in:
  • general detoxification of the body
  •  back pain
  •  sciatica
  •  Headache /migraine
  • toothache
  • severe sinus problems resulting in heavy nose bleeds, snoring and excruciating pain.
  • Hypertension
  •  Hypotension
  • Heavy menstrual cycle with clotting

- Do you have any interesting case-studies that you can briefly share with us from your hijama treatments?
I have a patient who suffers terribly with headaches and back pains, and since receiving treatment alhamdulilah, has felt a significant improvement, a clear mind, and thought process, no pain when sat in certain positions and overall more healthy.

Also a patient who suffered with toothache on a daily basis since receiving treatment has reported no pain

- Also what would you say about using cupping as a general preventative therapy and how often would you recommend this (once a month? once/twice a year?)

I would recommend cupping as a preventative therapy for everyone, alhamdulilah there is a point on the body that if cupped can prevent / cure up to 72 different types of diseases. It is a non-invasive procedure that releases local toxins, stimulates the lymphatic system, clears blockages, clots or stagnated circulation. Cupping will also insha Allah realign and balance vital energy, inevitably to leave you feeling more energetic and overall healthy insha Allah.
I would recommend as a general detox to have cupping done between every 2-4 months insha Allah, however cases are assessed individually and treatments may be needed on a more regular basis for certain conditions.

- What is the status and overall prevalance of hijama therapy in your city and in England? Is it available in hospitals and clinics as a valid alternative / sunnah therapy?

Alhamdulilah cupping is beginning to become very well known in my city by Muslims and non Muslims, but is not actively being offered in hospitals. You would have to go to a specialist clinic or a qualified practitioner to access treatment. However within the ummah I feel awareness for this forgotten sunnah is vastly increasing masha Allah.

- Whereabouts is your clinic or practice located and what services do you offer?

I am a mobile practitioner covering the Manchester area and alhamdulilah I also have access to a room in a hijama clinic for patients coming from further a field.

- Is there anything else you would like to add?
I offer wet and dry cupping I also offer nutritional advice to coincide with certain conditions (evaluated at consultation)   
Within the next few weeks I will also be offering full body massage / and aromatherapy massage insha Allah.
If anybody is interested in booking a hijama session or other services please contact me  via inbox on my facebook page at:  and I can have a free consultation and get you booked in insha Allah
My service is for women only insha Allah, but can recommend male practitioner on request
