TDP heat therapy:

TDP stands for “Special Electromagnetic Spectrum” in Chinese, and the lamp has been used in China and other Asian countries for over a decade. The TDP heat therapy lamp works by emitting an infrared spectrum which is specific to the mineral plate on the lamp head.  the specially engineered TDP CQ-36 that we use has a “black body” emission heating plate which is coated with a proprietary mineral formulation consisting of 33 elements. When activated by a built-in electric heating element, this mineral plate emits a special band of far infrared electromagnetic energy which penetrates deep into the human body. The cells in the human body havve a higher absorption efficiency for far infrared energy than near infrared.

Cupping

Cupping is an excellent tool to have access too. For many people it can be quite effective in treating a wide range of internal and muscular skeletal conditions. Today cupping has taken on an aspect of bodywork though it has been traditionally used for a variety of internal conditions. With cupping a vacuum is created in a glass bulb which then is placed on the body. This causes the tissue to be pulled into the cup. This can be especially useful for freeing old connective tissue, improving local blood flow, and effecting the internal organs. We use Fire cupping method with round edged glass cups that allow for a variety of techniques to be used. Primarily though we use static and slide cupping. Static cupping involves the stationary application of cups until the desired local effect is achieved. Slide cupping entails the use of a surface lubricant on the skin typically oil or massage lotion to allow free sliding or moving of a cup along wide areas. It is a particularly effective technique.

Topicals:
When appropriate medicated oils and topical applications may be used or recommended.  These may be used to relieave pain, stimulate circulation, calm inflammation, or treat other conditions.  It is possible to use these topicials in conjuction with TDP therapy during treatment or at home when not being treated.  It may include soaks, poultices, linaments, or other substances.
