It is employed as a healing substitute for electromagnetic heat treatment, a traditional Chinese treatment. The lamp is used by the bodywork therapists of Asia, acupuncturists, and other medical experts.
The special treat is now offered at our Sydney Live Well Clinic mainly for a provisional relief from soreness and arthritis.
What Procedure is Followed in the Treatment?
This heat therapy generally consists of uncovered skin exposure in the infected area with the TDP lamp positioned about 12 inches to 18 inches from the body of the patient. The duration of this treatment for a single disorder typically continues for 15 to 30 minutes, but in any case not more than 45 minutes.
Usually, this method of treatment is offered to patients once or twice in a day, for a period of 7 to 10 days. Additional weeks of the treatment are acceptable under the direction of our general practitioner. During the treatment with the IR lamps, patients will feel warmth, but our practitioners will position the lamp to keep it away from scalding. However, skin temperatures will not be allowed to go beyond 54 C (130 F).
