The following is an announcement by Dr Rizwhan Suleman MChiro of the Institute of Clinically Applied Hijama Therapy, an
organisation providing Hijama Training in UK
Clinically Applied Anatomy for Cupping Therapists PLUS live Cadaver Dissection Class at Guys Hospital in London on 22 March 2018
Be guided through the human body in our detailed study of clinically applied anatomy. This comprehensive clinical education programme allows learners to become familiar with all human structures and anatomical landmarks. Ideal for practitioners who
have hands on experience with patients but wish to expand their knowledge and skill set to appreciate the human body with the same level of understanding as qualified clinicians. With a blended learning format, the course allows students to study over ten hours of clinical anatomy lectures via distance learning in the leisure of their own homes. This study is then cemented with a live dissection class taking place at Guys Hospital, Kings College London on the 22 of March 2018 (This is a 5 minute walk from London Bridge tube station). The class will allow students to get hands on with real cadaver specimens specifically prepared for demonstration purposes. This rare opportunity provides cupping therapists and Hijama practitioners the chance to elevate their level of knowledge and practise and set them apart from a wide array of novice therapists flooding the market today.
- The live attendance class will take place in a medical education facility and will involve the study of human body parts of both male and female specimens.
- Attending students will not be cutting or dissecting human body parts themselves but will be able to handle human specimens prepared to demonstrate anatomical regions.
- This workshop is not designed for the faint-hearted and only serious learners should apply.
- Learners will be expected to have prior knowledge of anatomy before attending the live specimen class and it is highly advisable to study the online video lectures in order to gain the most out of the session.
- If you wear contact lenses it is advisable to use glasses for the live attendance class as the substance used to preserve the bodies can cause irritation.
- If you are or think you may be pregnant it is NOT advisable to attend the live session.
- The live class is not a compulsory requirement of this course.
- As the anatomy module of this course forms part of the ICAHT practitioner diploma completing this class will allow you a added concession fee if you chose to study at a later date.

Anatomy can be explained as the roadmap of the body and the knowledge which focuses on the structure of the human body from what can be seen with a naked eye i.e gross anatomy down to the sub-cellular scale. This knowledge is required to understand bodily function and to appreciate the interplay between the structure and function of the body in health and disease
