What to do before the WCT session

Fast few hours before the session

It is recommended to get WCT done on an empty stomach; which means: not to eat 3-4 hours before the session. This is only for food and it is to prevent the blood flow to be concentrated on your digestive system during the session.

In the Islamic tradition, it is reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) has recommended on an authentic narration to get Wet Cupping Therapy / Hijama done on an empty stomach.

Drink plenty of water

However, in order to maximise the benefits of the session, you’ll need to drink a good amount of water before the session. One litre (4 big glasses) drunk during the 3-4 hours before the session is recommended.

Skin preparation

We advise to have a shower before the session. You don’t need to apply anything on your skin.


Try to wear lose close to get an easy access to the areas you’d like to treat.
