TCM treatment

Sanfu is believed to be the best time to cure diseases of a chronic and cold nature, often occurring or being worse in the winter, such as coughs, asthma, and arthritis. Receiving futie,or sanfutie (a medicinal patch), is one of the most popular ways to treat such winter ills in China.

Sanfutie is a bandage with traditional Chinese herbal medicine. The treatment is based on the traditional Chinese medicine principle of yin and yang, which views the balance of the elements in the body as a vital condition for good health.
