The history of cupping (Hijama)


The use of Hijama (cupping) therapy has been documented in early Egyptian and Chinese medical practices. Originally it started as hollowed horns being used to suck out toxins from skin lesions and snake bites. In modern day society, Plastic disposable cups, Glass cups, sillicone cups, and bamboo cups are now used which equally and effectively present benefits exactly as hollow horns would do.
