There are some Hadith that mention days not recommended but due to the urgency of Ruqya, you can do Hijaama any time. The aim is the eradication of sorcery and Jinn and therefore it is valid to do it anytime.

Not all Ruqaa do Hijama outside of the sunnah days. some call patients back on sunnah days. I'm not sure about this 100%

According to authentic sunnah, specific days upon which hijaamah is sanctioned are outlined.
We need to acknowledge though, that cupping is an effective medical treatment, and since medication could be required at any given time, so too hijaamah could be administered as and when the need arises. This is the view of scholars such as Imaam Ahmad bin Hanbal رحمه الله  and others.
Important to understand is what establishes a legitimate 'need' in this regard. Examples among many are hypertension, hypotension, cluster migraines etc...
Where it could be avoided though, without real need ... We should stick to sunnah days for optimal healing.
