SanFuTie (Applying Medicated Herbal Patches on Acupuncture Points in Dog Days)  treats and/or prevents winter diseases in dog days with medicated herbal patches on various chosen acupuncture points. SanFuTian, or dog days, is the hottest period on Lunar Calendar.  Yang Qi, the warm element in the Yin-Yang balance, is at its highest and hence allows the body to be more responsive to the treatment.  Originating in the 17th century, this treatment is based on the principle of 冬病夏治 (literally, winter disease, summer cure).  SanFuTie is most ideal for treating winter conditions such as allergies, asthma, allergic rhinitis, chronic bronchitis, etc.  It is also suitable for individuals who commonly notice aversion to cold, aversion to wind, health conditions sensitive to drop of weather temperatures, or is prone to catch colds frequently during winter seasons.  It can be used as a prevention against problems common among people who live a hectic life, such as neck and shoulder pain, insomnia and gastrointestinal discomfort. Treatment is normally performed on one of the dog days for  a total of 3 consecutive applications, with an interval of 7-10 days between each application.  Treatment can be repeated in SanJiuTian (coldest period on Lunar Calendar) for reinforcing effects. 
2018 SanFuTian period starts July 17 and ends August 25. 
1st treatment:  July 17 ~ July 26
2nd treatment:  July 27 ~ August 15

​​Acupuncture  is a means to restore the balance to the flow of body’s Qi (life energy) and blood through insertion of fine needles into specific acupuncture points along the meridians of the body.  

Acupressure is similar in principle to acupuncture.  Physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points by hand, by elbow, or with various devices.

Cupping  is a therapy used to regulate the flow of Qi and blood by placing vacuum glass or plastic cups on meridians or regions of body affected by pain.  It is used to treat various conditions, such as stiff muscles, colds, muscular pains, body detoxication and so on.

GuaSha (Scraping)   a gentle scraping of the skin surface along the meridians of the body by means of a GuaSha tool (scraper).  It is used to treat and prevent illnesses by removing blood stagnation and promoting normal circulation and metabolic processes.  Patients will feel immediate relief from pain, fever, chill, cough, stiffness, nausea, and more.
