Sanfutie (Summer Herbal Patch) & SanJiuTie (Winter Herbal Patch) 

 

SanFuTie (三伏貼) and SanJiuTie (三九貼) are 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 SanFu (三伏) is the hottest period on the Chinese calendar, it is considered a particularly suitable time for treating illnesses. Comparatively, SanJiu (三九) is the coldest period on the chinese calendar, it considered as the YinYang (opposing) time for treating illnesses.

 

Our Acupuncture & TCM Practitioners

Traditional Chinese Medicine was developed in Asia over 2000 years ago. The principle diagnostic methods are through examination of the tongue and the pulse. Chinese Medicine uses natural herbs, acupuncture, massage, exercise, and dietary therapy to treat disease and balance all the organs in your body.  It is primarily used as a complementary alternative medicine approach. TCM is widely used in China and it is also used in the West.

Dr. Serina Chen, R.A.C, RTCMP

Dr. Serina Chen focuses on assessment and treatment of most body discomforts, using Needles, Cups, Guasha, Acupressure, Moxa, with TCM’s meridian theory, to help people reducing the pain, skin problems, depression, hemolyzing the body’s Yin and Yang, and more.

 

Having been in Canada for more than 25 years, she feels Vancouver’s windy, cold and moist weather gradually affect people's health to physically limited or causing the pains. 

 

According to the TCM theory, “preventing from getting sick”, I will put this idea in treatments to slow or eliminate unseen pathogenic factor to recuperate body or improve body immunity.
