Spending more than 10 years studying and practicing the ancient art of Hijama wet cupping under various teachers around the world, Dr. Tawwab first learned about cupping therapy during medical school in Ajman, UAE, after suffering a sports injury. There are many case studies of Wet Cupping Therapy treating ailments such as migraines, depression, insomnia, sports injuries, chronic back pain, fatigue, IBS, GERD, cough, asthma, arthritis and much, much more.
Because of the nature of Wet and Hijama Cupping Therapy, far fewer practitioners are qualified to perform it than dry cupping. As a board-certified physician, Dr. Tawwab uses best practices for a safe procedure.
Dr. Tawwab studied under the mentorship of Irfan Sheikh, who resides in London, UK. In addition to this esteemed teacher, Dr. Tawwab names his grandfather, Hakim Abdul Wahab Zhoori, as his greatest influence. He was the former Principal of Nizamya Tibbi College, Hyderabad India, and lived to age 92, with his last 10 years spent with end-stage Alzheimer’s disease. His grandfather dedicated himself to the Unani system of medicine and was recognized as the foremost researcher in the field. His books remain in print in India and other parts of the world, although none have yet been translated into English.
The theoretical framework of Unani is based on the teachings of Hippocrates (460-377 BCE) and Galen, which subsequently developed into a comprehensive healthcare system by Arabic physicians, especially Ibn Sina (a.k.a. Avicenna). Coming from this long family tradition of physicians, Dr. Tawwab has the rare ability to bring the best of allopathic medicine and traditional holistic healing therapies to help patients achieve a balanced state of health and well-being.
