Alhumdulillah, I also had my first cupping session on Wednesday! I read it was sunnah to have it performed on the 17th, 19th and 21st of the Islamic Month (wed was the 19th). It was long overdue...
I went with a friend a couple of years ago, to see what it’s like and masha’Allah the brother is top class. Muhammed Wali is a hijamah / cupping therapy expert and even teaches this science in St Georges Hospital, Tooting. He’s extremely professional, very hygienic - he does not re-use / resterilise the cups, each patient has new cups which are binned are the end of the session. He has 21years of hijamah / cupping experience.
His sessions are normally £40 session (possibly less for those not working). The session lasts for 45 / 50mins per person, this is regardless of no. of cups. He does one cup at a time. There are no large marks / visible cuts.
His students also include a sister who lives in the Tooting area that can perform cupping for sisters.
Give him a call if you’re interested. Muhammed Wali 07841688810
