ICAHT practitioners are qualified health professionals that have gone through a vigorous process of training and assessment to ensure that they are competent at practicing clinical hijama therapy in a safe way, in line with international standards of professional conduct.
Practitioners study the entire human body from head to toe as part of their education process and have an in depth knowledge of how hijama influences human physiology. Understanding how the body works is an essential aspect of helping recovery from illness, disease or simply optimising bodily function.
In addition to this practitioners study the science of patient practitioner interactions, legalities in terms of professional conduct, data protection and record keeping. Essential subjects such as infection control, pathology, physiology and aspects of religious and spiritual science are also studied and assessed in depth.
Practitioners who undergo ICAHT Certified hijama training are examined in practical assessments (OSCE’s), written exams, assignments and most importantly through clinical experience. This means that they have to physically work under guidance of qualified doctors or health professionals in a teaching clinic with real patients as part of an internship before being given their qualification.
Unlike many practitioners who claim to have qualifications or certifications in hijama after undergoing a one day course, online programs or Skype lessons ICAHT practitioners are individuals who have sacrificed the required time and given due commitment in order to become qualified health professionals without taking any shortcuts or easy routs.
All Registered ICAHT professionals have verified identities as they are required to submit official documents as part of the registration process, have professional indemnity insurance and agree to abide by a code of professional conduct as part of their membership which holds them to account in the case of any complaints made against them.
By demonstrating this level of openness and accountability ICAHT registered professionals show their wiliness to act in a professional way and their intentions to serve the best interest of their patients at all times. In the current climate of non-registered practitioners misusing their trust, overcharging and overstepping professional boundaries without ever providing their patients with their official names ICAHT registered practitioners serve to stand as pillars of public confidence for the safe practice of hijama therapy.
