Tianjiu therapy, also known as Acupoint Herbal Patching, is a kind of treatment that applies Chinese Medicinal herbal paste on designated acupoint and cause mild skin irritation, for the purpose of modulating the body immunity and improve certain chronic cold-deficiency type conditions. In TCM, Tianjiu therapy is often arranged in the summer (Sanfu days, mid-July to mid-August) and after Winter Solstice (Sanjiu days, late December to mid-January), which is a better seasonal timing to promote yang-qi, strengthen the body and achieve a prolonged health keeping effect.

Recent clinical studies suggested that Tianjiu therapy could improve several chronic conditions include nasal allergies, asthma, bowel discomforts, low back pain and menstrual conditions. It is also suggested that Tianjiu therapy may have potential relieving effect on post-COVID symptoms such as general weakness and fatigue.
