三伏貼及三九貼是利用每年最炎熱及最寒冷的時間點(通常是庚日)在背後的膀胱經貼上特殊的中藥貼布來進行體內的『廢氣』的大掃除。這樣的療法自古代流傳至今,已有悠久的歷史。針對季節性的過敏、支氣管哮喘、手腳冰冷、脾胃不振、抵抗力低落等有很好的療效。在亞洲國家十二歲的孩童常常都會由家長陪同去中醫診所貼三伏貼及三九貼來改善孩子的體質。貼布一般是貼在背後的膀胱經上。膀胱經,是人體最長的一條經絡,也是身體囤積最多垃圾的地方。這些垃圾的堆積,導致身體寒氣無法順利排出,也就都堆積在膀胱經上,影響身體其他臟器的功能。經由這些熱性的中藥的貼布,直接作用在膀胱經上可以掃除寒氣提升正氣暖化內部臟器的氣血功能。

The use of summer and winter patches during a specific time of the year has been a traditional way to improve one’s constitution since Qing dynasty.  It’s particularly indicated for those who are prone to have the seasonal allergy, asthma, cold limbs, poor digestive function and weak immune system. This is particularly popular in Asia for children under the age of 12 to improve their overall health.

Typically these patches are placed three times each time during the hottest days in summer, and coldest days in winter (therefore 6 times a year). The placement of the patches is usually along the Urinary Bladder meridian on both sides of the spine. Urinary Bladder meridian is associated with the storage & elimination of excessive energetic garbage in the body.  When it is stagnant, we are unable to eliminate the garbage as a result, it can cause many health problems. Imagine the garbage bags pile up at home when they are not picked up by garbage trucks, they not only stink but may also attract insects or rats.
