Hijama cupping accepted by famous celebrities

Hijama cupping accepted by famous celebrities

--------------------------------------_____




The former NRL premiership-winner Sonny Bill williams
who reverted to islam in 2008, revealed his use of HIJAMA cupping therapy, an age-old Muslim procedure in which small glass cups vacuum blood from small incisions.

Sonny Bill is not the first celebrity to undergo Hijama cupping therapy, with actresses Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow both spotted on the red carpet with circular bruises after undergoing the Hijama Cupping treatment.

It was Gwyneth who kicked off the trend in 2004 when she spotted with the cupping spots at a film premiere.

Not long after Victoria Beckham followed suit, and even tennis great Andy Murray declared himself a
devotee of the Cupping trend.

Sonny Bill Williams is a powerful athlete and has revealed the bizarre secret weapon behind his impressive ability.

The All Blacks rugby player and former NRL star shared a photo on Twitter of himself undergoing treatment known as hijama cupping.

Williams tweeted a startling photo of his swollen back and neck covered in blood-filled cups – accompanying the odd image with the caption: 'detox time.'

The post received a huge reaction

In the picture, Williams is hunched over a chair with six blood-spattered bell-shaped cups attached to his back.
Two longer shaped cups protrude from his neck.

"Detox time", the Rugby World Cup winner titled the post, followed by an emoticon of two hands raised in celebration and another representing clear skin.

The post drew a big reaction from some of Williams' 542,000 Twitter followers, including a range of opinions and attitudes.

The Chiefs player is a fan of hijama cupping, a traditional Arabic medicinal treatment and form of ‘wet cupping’, where blood is drawn from the skin via a small incision.
He posted the photo on his tweeter account with the caption, “Detox time.”

He says
The Islamic prophet Muhammad is quoted in the hadees as saying,
“Indeed the best of remedies you have is hijama, and if there was something excellent to be used as a remedy then it is hijama.”

Dry cupping refers to the same practice, but is done without making an incision in the skin.

It’s not painful, generally.
It probably looks scarier than it is,” said Professor Marc Cohen, a holistic medicine expert from RMIT University’s School of Health Sciences.

“It’s supposed to mobilise blood flow and promote a release of stagnant blood, so blood that is not circulating in the body. I know they use it to help with bruising in martial arts,” he told news.com.au.

Professor Cohen said the practice has been around for thousands of years and was used in many ancient medicinal therapies from China, the Middle East and Europe.
