Hijama, حجامة

Hijama (Arabicحجامة‎ lit. "sucking") is the Arabic name in traditional medicine for wet cupping, where blood is drawn by vacuum from a small skin incision for therapeuticpurposes. It is reported that the Islamic prophet Muhammad said, "Indeed the best of remedies you have is hijama (cupping) and if there was something excellent to be used as a remedy then it is hijama (cupping)"
