Community

Healing Hearts Sufi Dargah, 285 Laurel Hill Ave, Norwich, CT , 06360

If there were just one thing you could choose to maintain your overall health Fire Cupping or Hijama would be any informed persons number one choice.

Micro surgeons utilize leaches in the reattachment of severed fingers and limbs as the leaches increase the success of the surgery by promoting good circulation around the attached area of the body.

In like manner Fire Cupping promotes circulation in the entire body when performed properly and on the correct days. Dead blood cells are extracted from the body allowing the body to oxygenate and thus better heal itself from a host of diseases and conditions.

While not a certification course the course does allow the participant to learn the various techniques of Fire Cupping and provides a thorough introduction to this ancient medical art.
