How to Use a TDP Lamp?

Heat therapy, is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that works by improving blood flow and circulation due to increased temperature. It can relax muscles as well as heal damaged tissue. With the development of current technology, a new innovated tool which is used for assisting heat therapy has been developed. This is TDP lamp. 

What is TDP lamp?

TDP lamps are sometimes referred to as TDP mineral lamps or infrared heat lamps. It is a specific electromagnetic lamp that produces far infrared emissions. It works by using the heat: heat up the lamp at high temperature, and then the lamp will produce radiation as well as electromagnetic wave. Since the centre of the lamp carry the minerals, it will become ionized and be carried into human below the 3 ½ inches below the surface under the skin. It is believed that such heat therapy can stimulate the healing and metabolism process of your body.

How to use a TDP lamp effectively?

If you want to use the TDP lamp effectively, you need to adjust your methods according to the purposes of using the TDP lamp. For example, the purpose of using it is for clinical treatment or for superficial discomfort. 

  • For clinical treatment: the TDP lamp should be positioned 12-16 inches away from the affected body area for 5 to 40 minutes. The treatment period varies with different symptoms. Although you cannot see the far infrared lights (since they are above the spectrum of visible lights), you can feel the gentle warmth in the treated area. 
  • For superficial discomfort: place the TDP lamp directly on the treated area at a distance of 12-16 inches for 30 minutes a day and for a consecutive period of 7 days. If you want to prevent and control pain and stiffness, the period normally takes 6 to 20 days.

What are the differences between a TDP lamp and other simple far infrared heating devices?

Compared with other simple far infrared heating devices, TDP lamps have two attributes that make it a unique clinic device. Firstly, the heating plate of the TDP lamp is coated by mineral formulation consisting of 33 different minerals that are found within the human body. When heated, these minerals can be easily absorbed by human body and will produce biological effects and strengthen micro circulation, promote metabolism produce repair, which to our body’s pathological changes and enhance the body’s function of adjustment and immunity.  It has been shown that over a sustained period of time, exposure to TDP lamps promote cell growth and repair, and benefit immune function.

Besides the minerals on the heating plate, the TDP lamp is also unique for its spectrum of infrared light, which has a wavelength range of 2-25 micrometers. The far infrared lights can stimulate micro circulation and increase the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues while eliminating toxins.The infrared lights emitted by human body are normally at the wavelength of 12 micrometers, which falls between the ranges of what a TDP lamp emits. 

In conclusion, the TDP lamp is different from other simple far infrared heating devices. It has been shown that TDP lamps could stimulate micro-circulation, promote cell growth and repair, and benefit immune function. In order to use it effectively, you need to distinguish your intent of using the TDP lamp, then follow the instructions we have mentioned above.
