Allergy & Asthma Treatment by Chinese Medicine:

Acupoint Application of Chinese Herbs

Question & Answer

  • What is Acupoint Application of Chinese Herbs?

Acupoint application of Chinese herbs is a method which uses certain Chinese herbs to make a small pad to apply on special acupuncture points to treat certain illnesses. This has been used for thousands of years in China. The 3 day Allergy & Asthma Clinic in the summer is the most popular program used in major hospitals in China. Based on clinical reports from hospitals published in The Chinese Acupuncture & Moxibustion Journal, the effective rates range from 80% – 90%.

  • What illnesses can benefit from this treatment? How does it work?

This treatment has been proven to be most effective for:

  • Allergies
  • Sinuses
  • Asthma
  • Weak Immune Systems

  • How often should I get treated?

For best results, 3 consecutive days in a year is recommended. You may receive treatments yearly as long as you want, and you may also stop treatment at any time.

  • Do I have to do it in “3 Summer Days?”

No, you do not. You can get treatments any time, but the “3 Summer Days” regimen is the most effective for allergies and asthma which are the worst in the winter and spring time. The interval of this clinic is based on the Chinese Medical theory: “Treat a cold on a hot day” and “Treat winter diseases in the summer time.” Some makeup days are available if you cannot make all 3 days- please check with the clinic.

  • How do I prepare for the treatments?

We suggest taking a shower or a bath before the treatment, remove any body hair on the upper back, wear loose clothing and avoid activities that may cause excessive sweating before the treatment. This is to ensure that the patch stays on accordingly.

  • What are the possible side effects?

There are usually very minimal side effects, if any at all. Leaving the herbal pads on too long may cause skin irritation, a slight rash, a burning sensation or in extreme cases, infection. To avoid any side effects, it is advised to orderly keep the pad on for 6-8 hours for adults and 2-4 hours for children. If you do have irritated skin, or itching or burning around or under the pad, it should be removed immediately to avoid further complications.

  • Is there a minimal age for the clinic?

Any age is welcomed!

  • What is the cost of the treatments?

$150 for 3 treatments. This can be paid by cash, check, or Visa/Master card.
