Hijama (cupping) is fairly safe with no known side effects.

Many diseases and disorders are caused by the failure of blood to circulate properly in the body. Also, body organs under-perform when blood, that is circulated, is loaded with impurities and toxins. Removing this toxic waste, from the body, through Hijama (cupping), helps the individual to recover much faster from the disease and prevents other diseases or disorders. The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) stated “Indeed the best of remedies you have is cupping (Hijama)…” (Bukhari).
The beneficial results after Hijama (cupping) are many, and are as follows:
