Hijama Cupping Therapy is an alternative medicine involving suction from a body part. Cups are applied to the skin to facilitate suction.

Benefits of Hijama points no: 53 and 54

These hijama points are located at the inner part of the knee from the back. Let’s discuss their benefits.

  • Sciatica causes multiple levels of pain that travel from the lower back to the hips, buttocks, and thighs. Applying cups on these hijama points relaxes the tight muscles by alleviating the pressure and nourishing the nerves damaged by restricted blood flow. A review study from 2016 published in Pharmacology and Pharmacy found that Hijama cupping therapy reduced 67% of hospital patients suffering from sciatica pain.

  • People have used cupping therapy for thousands of years to relieve headaches, neck, and back pains. One of the easiest and most effective treatments for back pain is Hijama cupping therapy. When suction is created on these specific points, it expands the blood vessels and increases blood circulation, oxygenation, and lymphatic drainage.

  • Hijama increases blood circulation and treats a large number of blood disorders. Hijama on these specific points also promotes blood flow in the legs and circulation of the lymphatic system.

- Hijama Cupping Therapy is one of the best natural treatments for gout. It mobilizes uric acid so that it can be removed from the blood. Bad blood circulates the affected area of a gout attack. Targeting Hijama sunnah points on the foot, and these hijama points at the back of the knee increases blood circulation and relieves painful muscle tension.

  • These points are very effective for knee pains. When we place cups around knee joints and create a vacuum inside the cup, the skin lifts over the muscles. The fresh blood rushes to fill the space between the skin and the muscles. Fresh blood helps to get rid of the swelling. When we perform the incisions, they carry away toxins that cause swelling. When the toxic blood comes out, it leaves more space for fresh blood. Cupping therapy increases the blood circulation around the affected area, which helps to alleviate inflammation, swelling, and discomfort.


  • When suction is applied at the back of the knee, it reduces inflammation, pain, and numbness around the body. The vacuum-like suction from the cups causes micro-trauma to the targetted areas. The suction causes the body to release an array of chemicals, fibroblasts, and white blood cells to the targetted area, triggering the healing process by reducing numbness and tingling in the hands and feet.

  • Poor blood circulation causes leg cramps, putting cups on that point helps to relax tensed muscles.


  • Hemorrhoids (Piles) are swellings and inflammation that contains enlarged blood vessels around the bottom (rectum and anus). Hijama points on the lower back and both legs may aid in getting rid of the root cause of hemorrhoids.

  • Anal fissures are deep tears or cracks in your anus. Sometimes fissures are confused with hemorrhoids. Hijama points for both diseases are the same. Both have inflamed blood vessels and often result from passing hard stools.

  • High cholesterol increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and heart attacks. Cleansing of the whole body is necessary to control high cholesterol. These hijama points on the back of the knee help remove toxins and improve the capacity of blood vessels.

  • Arthritis is an autoimmune, inflammatory disease in which immune cells mistakenly attack the joints triggering inflammation, swelling, and pain. Hijama on these points alleviates pain and reduces swelling.

  • Varicose veins are caused by increased blood pressure in the veins. Cupping therapy improves the blood flow in the targetted area and helps the veins subside. During the Hijama session, the cups cause pressure on the skin that draws oxygen and fresh blood to the targetted area. Using the incisions safely on these points can extract excess, toxic, stagnated fluids and toxins from the body.

  • Hijama cupping therapy is one of the oldest and most effective ways to alleviate pain in several conditions, especially menstrual disorders, including irregular periods, painful periods, and PMS. These hijama points behind the knee can be targeted to reduce menstrual disorders.

Hijama cupping therapy has been used to treat a wide variety of health conditions. Hijama promotes blood circulation, nourishes internal organs, and rejuvenates the skin by reversing the aging process.
