Course FAQ's

1Can I really learn Hijama in one day?
Yes Hijama is simple, it has been practised by many cultures through the centuries. So we are not teaching something very complicated. However there are certain health, safety and medical standards which need to be observed by law and practioners must be aware of.
2What about the practical?
You will be performing Hijama on fellow course attendees and will make sure you are confident in practising before you leave.
3Can I practise straight away?
Yes upon completion of the course you should be confident enough to practise straight away. And we continue to support you afterwards.
4How should I prepare for the course?
The course starts at 9.30am until 6pm. Please get a good nights rest as the day is full on with theory and practical where you will be needing both your brain and body! If you are ok to have Hijama performed on you - please wear comfortable clothing that gives easy access to your back.
All equipment is provided.
5I am coming from a distance, where can I stay?
Our course takes place in central Luton. Many of our attendees travel from different countries and long distances within the UK to attend our course.
