San Fu Moxa: 4 Amazing Reasons Why You Should Try It

San Fu Moxa: 4 Amazing Reasons Why You Should Try It

As the annual San Fu Moxa days at Six Fishes approach, you may wonder why we place such importance on this traditional Chinese therapy and why you should consider experiencing it. You can check out our previous blog to learn more about how San Fu Moxa works.

Here at Six Fishes, we use China Herb’s special San Fu Moxa blend. This is a warming herb mixture applied to specific acupuncture points to enhance your overall well-being and treat various conditions. While scientific research on San Fu Moxa is limited, the existing studies present compelling evidence of its effectiveness. Since this treatment is preventive, its true impact should be measured throughout the year following the therapy.

Need convincing? Here are four examples of how San Fu helps:

1. Improves Chronic Allergies

San Fu Herbal pastes have been highly effective for those suffering from chronic rhinitis symptoms. In a study conducted on 80 patients, applying San Fu moxa on specific points on the upper back, using herb combinations primarily including ground mustard seed, resulted in significant improvement.

2. Enhances Asthma Treatment in Children

San Fu moxibustion has shown promising results in treating bronchial asthma in adults and children. Multiple studies have demonstrated reduced asthma attacks and improved respiratory health after receiving San Fu treatment.

3. Reduces Inflammation Associated with Pulmonary Fibrosis

In the case of pulmonary fibrosis, San Fu Moxa has proven to be a valuable therapeutic complement to steroid treatment. Applying San Fu Moxa to specific points on the back has shown a significant reduction in inflammation, improved respiratory function, and enhanced overall well-being.

4. Boosts Immune Response

San Fu Moxa has been found to stimulate the production of white blood cells, thereby enhancing the immune system. This therapy can be particularly beneficial when the skin blisters due to treatment.
