What is “San Fu Tie”?

In recent years, it is very popular in China to apply a Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture protocol called “San Fu Tie” to cure winter diseases in summer. San Fu Tie is a procedure in traditional Chinese medicine in which medicated patches are placed on various acupuncture points on the body.

How does “San Fu Tie” work?

Basically, you get three treatments over the course of one summer, over three consecutive summers, which, over time, can significantly reduce the severity of symptoms, and possibly even cure any regular health problems that you have during the winter months.

What are the symptoms suitable to be treated/prevented with “San Fu Tie”?

Conditions that are best treated are generally associated with Yang-deficiency or predominantly cold related. These include chronic bronchitis, asthma, pollen allergy, sinusitis, recurrent colds and flus, lingering colds, arthritis, feeling cold all the time, and more.

Other notes about the treatment:

  • During the treatment course term: cold and greasy foods, cigarettes, alcohol should be avoided as they may reduce treatment effect.
  • According to patient’s sensitivity, body condition, and duration of application, certain skin reactions such as local redness, heat sensation, light prickling, or minor blistering may occur. These generally do not require special attention and will heal on its own. In rare cases, large rashes or vesicles may develop. Cautions should be taken to prevent infections.
  • The site of application may retain hyperpigmentation for a short period of time.
  • Not recommend for those who with severe skin diseases, easily allergy to external application medication, fever, sore throat, during pregnancy or nursing, and children less than one years of age.
