As far as I know in the UK the hijama training centres are run by Sunnis. I know a Shi'i person that studied and is certified as a practitioner through one of these clinics.  There are hijama clinics in Iran, e.g. Tehran and Qom. The interest in natural medicine and tibb is rising in Iran. If you are based in the West there should be at least one hijama practitioner in a city near you. If you prefer something that is specifically established through the Shi'i tradition, this is a link to an article compiled by several practitioners. Their contact details are on the article: https://reader.elsevier.com/reader/sd/pii/S0254627217301644

Yes, Hijamah treatment is very good for all people and it is mentioned in many authentic Hadeeths as one of the most useful ways of treatment. These authentic Hadeeths are mentioned in Shia and Sunni books. The Prophet himself (SAWA) and Infallible Imams (AS) used to do Hijamah for themselves and their families and advised people to do it for treatment and good health.

Wassalam.
