Used throughout ancient China, similar products were called the “belly belt of longevity” during the Tang Dynasty. The belt modulates bodily functions topically via the navel acupressure point CV8 or Shenque (also spelled Shen Que). It can be used by all ages, and has no side effects or toxicity. DO NOT HEAT—this belt is not to be confused with a heat pack.
Developed by Professor Lai Hui-Wu, this belt is the culmination of years of research and clinical experience, including case studies, medical literature, and court prescriptions across multiple dynasties.
There have been over 80 published clinical studies researching the efficacy of this herbal belt—some of these findings include:
(1) Observing the therapeutic effect of this patented herbal bag on chronic atrophic gastritis: From October 1993 to May 1994, 57 cases (including 14 cases in the control group) with chronic atrophic gastritis were observed for 6 months. The herbal belt had an effective rate of more than 70% in improving the symptoms and signs of chronic atrophic gastritis, including pathological changes in H. pylori infection. After wearing the belt, the side effects from medication were reduced, the course of the disease was shortened, and the healing was accelerated.

As a result of the treatment, 36 cases were deemed to be cured, 7 cases were markedly effective, and 9 cases were effective, with an effective rate of 86%. Due to the special physiological location and characteristics of Shenque acupoint, the belt was believed to be beneficial to the absorption, penetration and transport of the herbal medicine within, and helps activate blood circulation and remove blood stasis, invigorate the spleen, and warm the spleen and kidney, and has achieved good therapeutic effects on chronic pelvic inflammation.
