Similar to San Jiu Jiu, San Fu Tie is the winter treatment where and when Yang Qi is at its weakest. This Acupoint Herbal Treatment (AHT) is a special treatment method for what is known as "Raising the Yang".
San Fu Tie is a special preventive external herbal medicine therapy used to treat disorders affecting the upper respiratory system (such as asthma, chronic cough, weak immune system, sinus problems, allergies), and digestive disorders (such as slow metabolism, fatigue, loose stools). It also strengthens general health, and immunity, it can treat joint pain, sore back, infertility, low libido, urinary dysfunction, and many other conditions…
This is a very popular preventive treatment in China! Traditional Chinese hospitals are known to have lines out the doors on the Fu days with patients waiting for hours to have their points taped with herbal patches.
This treatment is for strengthening the Yang Qi (warming, lifting, & transforming function) of the body.
When Yang Qi is deficient
Imagine just a few of the symptoms that can arise if our Yang Qi is deficient: chills and numbness of the extremities, impaired circulation of the blood and bodily fluids, menstrual, urinary, and sexual dysfunction.
The lungs can lose their ability to expand and contract fully and easily, resulting in poor oxygenation of the blood, coughing, and nasal congestion.
We may experience sluggish digestion, abdominal pain, and watery diarrhea because the digestive organs lack the heat needed to process and assimilate nourishment.
Who Should Check it Out?
If you are the type of person to struggle with asthma, seasonal allergies, sinusitis or just seem to be particularly vulnerable to every passing cold (all that coughing!), San Fu Tie is for you. But more than these few mentioned, treatment is widely suitable for patients of the following categories:
1. cough and asthma diseases: allergic rhinitis, asthma, bronchitis
2. painful diseases: cervical spondylosis, pain in waist and lower extremities, frozen shoulder, osteoarthritis, myofascitis
3. gastrointestinal diseases: chronic gastroenteritis, diarrhea, dyspepsia
4. gynecological diseases: irregular menstruation, dysmenorrhea (painful periods), chronic pelvic inflammatory disease
5. people with weak immune system or sub-optimal health: frequently feels cold, easy to catch colds, sleep disorder, easy to be fatigue, poor mental state
When is the Best Time for Treatment?
Timing is everything, and with winter time approaching, this is the perfect time for the Acupoint Herbal Treatment (AHT). The coldest winter days for this year are from June 26th - August 24th. During these days, the body and the earth’s Yang energy reach their weakest; it is said that this is the best time to support and nourish the body's Yang Qi.

Does San Fu Tie Work? (Enthusiastically - YES!!)
San Fu Tie is a practice of preventive medicine that has been passed down and practiced for generations. I gave this treatment to some of my regular patients who fit the profile for San Fu Tie treatment. The benefits I’ve observed this past fall, winter and spring have been nothing short of impressive! So of course, I want to share it with all of you.
Research on the Treatment
A study treating Allergic Rhinitis (AR) in China showed that Herbal Patch (HP) was effective among 60% of AR patients after treatment. HP versus a placebo and showed that HP is effective, especially for nasal symptoms, and caused a significant improvement in patients' quality of life (1). In another study approximately 60% of the patients perceived the treatment as being effective at 1 year later (2). In another study acupoint herbal patching appeared to be more effective than placebo in improving total clinical symptoms and signs after treatment and at 6 months, and in improving quality of life at <3 months and over 3 months (3).
