Far infrared heat has been used therapeutically in the form of TDP lamps all over the world for more than two decades. Infrared energy is not only highly beneficial to the body but is also free of side effects. Far infrared lamps are used by doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, physical therapists, and massage therapists to promote self-healing in such conditions as arthritis, muscle pain, and injuries to the tendons and ligaments.
Study conducted at Chengdu University of Science and Technology found that
far infrared heat could be a suitable alternative for moxibustion, whose use in Traditional Chinese Medicine is currently limited by the large amount of highly pungent smoke produced. In their research they discovered that heat produced when moxa is burned falls within the electromagnetic spectrum of 600 milimicrons to far infrared. Modern biomedical research has confirmed the efficacy of moxibustion in strengthening the immune system and pain relief.
