Dr Ashfaque Shaikh
Alongside acquiring a degree as Md Physician, Dr. Ashfaque Shaikh is also well versed in the field of cupping and sports massage therapies. He has gained 7 years of experience in the medical field, by working in various hospitals abroad, and healthcare associations. The patients’ well being and good health has always been his priority, whether that is achieved by conventional medicine or alternative therapies. Dr. Ashfaque appreciated cupping therapy for religious reasons as it is one of the prophetic medicines. But his interest in alternative therapies grew as he further acquired a Diploma in Clinical Hijama Therapy, as well as learning the technique of Acupuncture, Guasha, manipulation therapy, and also gained skills in Sports Massage Therapy. He has been working as a Hijama (cupping) Therapist for three years in Leicester, and now opened his first clinic.
