That changed in year 2011 when she got severely sick for 6 weeks, and the only non-surgical treatment that was effective and reduced her symptoms was Hijama. Her brother had been an Hijama Practitioner for about 20 years, and always encouraged her to practice Hijama, but she didn’t because she was scared of blood. So he performed the Hijama procedure on her in 2011 and she felt the benefits. This encouraged her to earn her Hijama Diploma and License in 2011. She has been practicing Hijama since then.
