HI Shifa Clinic

"The path to true health in the 21st century"

Welcome to HI Shifa Clinic

This home based clinic in Snaresbrook is run by husband and wife duo, Hamza and Ishrat. Having studied acupuncture, cupping and herbal medicine together at Middlesex University, they set their goal of helping many people experience true health, without suffering the side effects of conventional medicine.

As a HI Shifa Clinic patient you will receive a combination of natural medicine, modern scientific knowledge and our time and care to treat your condition. We help you understand the root cause of your condition as well as track your progress so you don’t feel left in the dark.

We understand some of the frustrations you might have from your pain stopping you getting a good night’s sleep or how your skin condition affects your confidence and we are here to change that. Our ethos is simple “Every Disease Has a Cure” and we are here to help find yours.

Experience True Health

What is true health? It’s no secret that there are a lot of misconceptions regarding health, and through university and further research a lot of our “norms” growing up have certainly been challenged. We want to share with you some common misunderstandings that can have a major impact on your health, or the people you are looking after.
