In a lot of our treatments, you will experience the indulgent and warming Far infrared lamp on either your belly, feet or perhaps the site of pain or injury. Far Infrared heat therapy or TDP heat lamps improve blood circulation in the smallest blood vessels (microcirculation) and loosen connective tissue (fascia) to relax muscles. TDP which is short for the Chinese pinyin “TedingDiancibo Pu” which means specific electromagnetic spectrum, because the heat lamp transmits far infrared radiation in the 2-50 micrometre range. The mineral layer includes around 33 trace elements which radiate far infrared emissions when heated to the right temperature. Like Moxa, the heat promotes blood circulation and can be used for menstrual disorders, stimulating blood to the uterus and can assist with digestive issues.
Moxibustion (moxa) is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique of heating acupuncture points with a herb known as Mugwort. Moxa is placed near the skin at a comfortable temperature in order to promote healing. The variety of Mugwort used in the clinic is potent yet smokeless.
From a Traditional Chinese Medicine understanding moxibustion is used to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of qi, and maintain general health.
