Hijama for Asthma – A Case Study

This is a case study by one of our students from East London, UK

Note: Hijama Nation respect their students and their patients’ privacy so we are not declaring any of the names. These are real case studies which have been submitted by our students.

The patient’s name is G.A, a female, aged 37. She had been suffering from asthma. She took inhalers only when needed. She had back pain and pain in the chest area due to asthma. She had a weak bladder. Her general muscle tone and posture were also poor.

G.A had Hijama a few months back, and as a result of previous session her asthma was better than before. But she still had some mild wheezing at night now.

In the 1st session, I used fixed cluster cupping on the patient’s body to assess the toxins. I also did massage cupping on her back. At the time of second session, the patient’s lung points were very dark. After the session, her asthma was better and she had only mild wheezing at night. I advised her to cut down sugary drinks and to drink water instead.

Over a period of six treatment sessions, I performed hijama therapy on her neck sunnah point and lung points on the patient and as a result, the patient felt lighter, better and active than before. I advised her to take black seed oil with milk. Later,  I worked on secondary hijama points to boost her immune system. I  worked on tailbone area, back of the legs, middle thighs, calves, and the inner ankles and advised the patient not to eat bananas and oranges at night. By the third treatment, the patient had no wheezing that week.

She only felt aches and pain in her legs and shoulders. So, in the 4th session, I did massage cupping on the back, on the muscles of the chest, arms and legs. As a result, the patient’s muscle pain was much better. She had only mild wheezing now. Finally,  hijama was done on the upper back (sunnah ‘kahil’ area) and lung points. Generally, the techniques of massage cupping, dry cupping and fixed cupping were used to clear the stagnation and to improve blood and lymph circulation. After the 6th session, I advised her take regular cupping, to cut down sugary drinks and to take mild exercise. By the end of the course of treatments,  the patient had no wheezing that week so she didn’t need to use the inhaler for quite a while.

Patient Testimonial by Sr. G.A:

“I enjoyed  my Hijama sessions a lot with Sr S. Her kind and gentle manner has put me at ease before and during hijama sessions. I always got advice from her about what to do before (e.g, no food before having hijama), during and after these sessions.

I found them very beneficial as I suffered from asthma. I noticed my wheezing was very minimal and I felt very well mash Allah. I also had a general well-being, more active and well Alhamdolillah.

The marks after the hijama faded quite quickly. Sr S advised me how to look after them with black seed oil. I am very happy that the Sunnah of hijama is being revived and I am passionate about letting others know of the benefits of hijama.

I am also pleased that Sr S asked me to have these hijama sessions regularly. I myself feel that I have benefitted from them very much. May Allah reward Sr S and everyone else involved in reviving this Sunnah of our beloved Prophet (SAW)”.

Jazakallah Khairun
