Winter Herbal Patch, By Appointment
Led by Dr. Melinda Cheng, BC Registered TCMPc
Sanfutie (三九貼) is a procedure in traditional Chinese medicine in which medicated patches are placed on various acupuncture points on the body. Originating in the Qing dynasty, this method is based on the principle of 冬病夏治 (lit. winter disease, summer cure). As SanJiu (三九), the coldest period on the Chinese calendar, it is considered a particularly suitable time for treating illnesses. Combined with SanFu (三伏), is the hottest period on the Chinese calendar, this treatment will help alleviate allergies and improve the natural balance of your body’s immune system. (Best results are seen after consecutive treatments)
Typically, four of these credit-card-sized patches are applied to different locations on the back at the same time, and are kept there for at least eight hours.
