This therapy originates from traditional hot compress therapy. It can help unlock the obstructed blood vessels, so as to speed up blood circulation. As long as the blood pathways are smooth, enough oxygen and the active ingredients or medicines can be carried to the kidneys. Then, the kidney can repair its damaged renal tissues. Therefore, it is a therapy that can improve kidney function.
This therapy also belongs to traditional Chinese medical treatments. Innovated in Qing Dynasty and has been widely used in China. This therapy uses Chinese herbs that have the function of filtering wastes and toxins. The herbs are micronized and processed. Then put them on certain acupoints of the body to eliminate toxins inside the body. Hence, it is also a natural therapy for detoxification of kidneys.
