Hijama

I just had my 3rd session with Wafaa yesterday and before I started seeing wafa I had siatica and lower back pain due to a disk problem. I had visited, chiropractors, massage therapist, acupuncturist and so much more work no relief. I was on many different meds and I hated taking med and I was living in them all day everyday to get me through the day. For more then 8 months I suffered until I found wafa and with the hijama and what she recommended I've been off all meds and been pain free. My back isn't 100% but I am pain free. I have recomended my friend's and family to her and I recommend everyone to try hijjama and to go to Wafaa. She's very well educated In what she does and very well explanatory. I had a amazing experience with her every time.

Total detoxification,Cholesterol , knee pain, weight loss

I did a session with Sister Wafaa and it was really helpful. For example I have body pain, high blood pressure, and cholesterol and since I've done the session I feel like a brand new person and I never feel a need for sweets. I have so much pain in my foot and since this session I feel so much better. I lost weight without feeling tired. I can do more activities without being tired.

Hijaama session

I had heard so much about cupping/hijaama from my family and friends, that I was quite eager to try it out. To be honest, i came to Wafaa for overall health reasons, especially my elevated blood pressure reading of 164/94 less than a month ago. After discussing my list of aches and pains, Wafaa gave me her diagnosis and a thorough description of where the cups will be placed and for a specified treatment. For me, it was for hypertension, anxiety, hormonal imbalance, depression, and prediabetes. After only 1 session of hijaama, i had a recheck for my bp reading, and was quite pleased to find it at 128/80. I will be going back to Wafaa for follow up treatments, but I sincerely would like to encourage anyone who is hesitant or not sure whether hijaama is the way to go, to give it a try!! You won't be disappointed. All my best!

Psoriasis skin treatment

Sister Wafaa assisted my mom with a psoriasis skin condition that started approx one year ago. My moms psoriasis was out of control, not responding to any light therapy or creams prescribed by MD's. we tried many different dieting techniques and they also would not help. My mom has now had two Hijama treatments and is following the diet recommended by sister Wafaa. With Allah grace we have now seen vast improvement with the skin condition. My mom was able to sleep for first time without any Benadryl after one year and when she came back for the second treatment she was 60% improved!!! Sister Wafaa is a master of her trade and very knowledgeable. We highly recommend her treatment approach and we have provided ongoing photos of the progress of this incurable skin condition. There are not enough thanks, words or duas we can give to Sister for helping my mom.

Magical Experience

I'd like to take an opportunity to share my experience with Sister Wafaa, She spends her time to listen to the issues the patient is experiencing, and then explains the treatment that she'll be doing for each of the issues, and MashaaAllah the way she performs the Hijama, the moment i got up, i felt a huge difference.. I strongly recommend Wafaa to anyone seeing any health issue.. I am about to call her to setup an appointment for my mother and my wife, so you can imagine what kind of experience i had with her.

Amazing on hand treatment

I went to Wafaa last week for so many problems starting with appetite problem to back and knees pain. First I have to say I was amazed with how well prepare and professional she was, she had so many certificates on her clinic wall that made me more comfy to be there! I liked that she explained first what she's going to do. She was very gentle and clean. I had sever lower back pain, when she start the copping first I felt the pain was coming out slowly! By the time she finished the hejamah I had no pain in my back what so everyone, I couldn't believe it. She even did hejamah for my knees, it's pain free since last week. By the time she finished I felt totally different, toxins free and pain free, I even have so much energy since then. My daughter was with me she told me I look different, much happier ! I didn't take any pain medicine since last week. I believe I have found my toxins free medicines. Amazing. I do strongly recommend Wafaa, professional, gentle and very comfy.

Hijama for neck and lower back pain

I had the rare opportunity to meet with Wafa'a after I heard of her excellent Hijama treatment, at first I was skeptical about the whole thing, but the pain was in unbearable and at that time I had nothing to lose, so I decided to give Hijama a trail, I searched the Internet and I found Wafa Akl and she was able to explain the process to me in such easy and simple way to understand. She put my mind to ease and I had no pain during the procedure. Almost immediately after she was done the Hijama I felt so much relief and felt as if the pain was almost gone. I went back for 6 sessions and I now can walk, set, and run pain free. I'm so glad I met Wafa, she is amazing and I recommend her to everyone to try her drug free approach and you'll be so happy that you did and most of patients feel improvement after the first session.

Amazing amazing!

My husband and I were very excited about Hijama. We had it done previously in India but our experience with Wafaa was out of this world! I came in for a regular body cleanse and sinus problems. My husband wanted to do it just for sunnah purposes. After our treatment we were already feeling energized! By the time I came home my sinus was half gone. The next day we couldn't even tell we had Hijama done (previously we were in pain for weeks). With Wafaa there was no such thing! She is very very knowledgeable in this field. She is so welcoming and kind and very professional. We can't wait to go back! I highly recommend her. She isn't about unnecessary cupping she only does it where she knows best !

Simply Wonderful

Wafa is the best! I went to her with a huge sense of skepticism and apprehension, however, the minute I entered her office, I felt very welcomed and right at home. I found her very personable as we as knowledgeable. Wafa performed hi hama on me and as soon as the next day, I felt like a completely different person. My energy level went up, my appetite went down, and I see a huge difference in my cognitive functioning. I would definitely return to her and have been recommending her to all my friends and family.

Hijama for pain relief and diabetic contol

I went to do hijama because my stomach was very bloated and no matter what i did, it wouldn't go down. I am also diabetic so she placed a few cups on points that target diabetic management. She placed cups on my back and stomach (a total of 14 cups) and the whole time i didn't feel a thing. Wafaa told me what she was doing the whole time and I was at ease. Afterwards my numbers came down and my stomach was no longer in pain. I was even able to inject myself in the stomach again with no pain!

I have benefited from hijama cupping

I have started hijama with Wafaa since 05/2014 for my (1) primary health concern – nerve damage on right side of my body. Nerve damage is a serious thing, recovery takes time. Prayers and spiritual purification practices; along with hijama and diet recommendations by Wafaa helped me to avoid the surgery till date and manage my pain, weakness, numbness and muscle atrophy. (2) Hijama also helped me with my frozen shoulder. After just 1 treatment I noticed change in my arm movement within 2 weeks. Feels good. (3) Hijama helped to maintain my menstrual cycle. After 3 months of no period, I had 1 treatment and within 18 hours my period started. Amazing. I wish Wafaa Akl all the best.

Hajama is the reason for my phyiscal improvements.

By the 19th hour after treatment. My mind was alert. My body was normal, I felt good. I suffered with constipation, my first improvement after Hijama treatment was my bowel movements are easy. Also I suffer with carpal tunnel. After the Hijama treatment I notice improvement in opening a Jar. Before treatment I had no strengh in my hands. but after the treatment and rest. My hands are much better. I am confidant the Hajama is the reason for my phyiscal improvements.
