TDP Lamp can also be call heat therapy is an important aspect of TCM.
TDP lamp is almost the same as moxibustion, it is a traditional method of applying heat therapeutically but TDP lamps are unique in that they produce Far Infrared energy. Conventional infrared lamps produce what is called Near Infrared.
- Produce visible light that has a wavelength of 1 to 5 microns and is used as a simple source of heat.
- Generate infrared energy with wavelengths from 1 to 50 microns.
- Accomplished by heating a proprietary ceramic disc coated with 33 different minerals that, when heated, emit the Far spectrum of infrared energy that is most easily absorbed by the human body.
As oppose to moxibustion, the only setback is that the treatment produces smoke that could be harmful to the practitioners as especially who performing the treatment.
So TDP lamp is a wonderful replace alternative to burning moxa.
and also frees practitioners from the manual aspect of moxibustion, so that they can attend to other aspects of their patient care.
The benefit of TDP lamp:
TDP lamps generate a unique heat that, like moxibustion, is penetrating and stimulates deep muscle relaxation thereby increasing circulation and remove blood stasis.
