Heat Therapy Moxibustion and TDP Lamp

Moxibustion treats and prevents diseases by applying heat to points or certain locations on the body. The material used is moxa in the form of a cone or stick. Moxa is the herb Artemisia and can be found pure or mixed with other ingredients. When used it warms the body and adds energy to it as well. It can open energy flow in the body as well as penetrate the energy pathways eliminating many diseases. As this herb is ignited, the burning moxa creates warmth that can move deeply into muscles.
Moxibustion helps with both acute problems as well as chronic ones: including diarrhea, asthma, muscle pain and/or injury, indigestion, abdominal pain, painful joints, tuberculosis, skin ulcers & boils, vomiting, hernia pain, impotence, and paralysis. This can be in conjunction with acupuncture or alone in certain situations. When used with acupuncture the moxa can be used on points that have needles or other locations on the body. Warming the needle helps the herb penetrate. There are direct and indirect methods of use. The moxa can be placed directly on the skin, or held nearby. Direct moxa is used by placing small cones of the herb directly on the skin. Indirect moxibustion is used by having a small piece of cardboard or other material between the patient and the moxa in order to prevent the patient from being burnt. There are points on the body where moxibustion is used to keep one healthy and add years to ones life.

A TDP Electromagnetic Health Lamp is also used in our facility. This lamp functions to aid in promoting metabolism, regulating physiological deficiency, diminishing inflammation and easing pain. This lamp is indicated for skin disease, surgical, medical, gynecologic, pediatric, upper respiratory, and neurological use. The TDP lamp has been proven to be effective in treating numerous ailments such as muscular soreness and pain, soft tissue injuries, arthritis, bedsores, chronic skin ulcers, some secondary male dysfunction, vasculities, wound infections, diarrhea, bronchitis, dysmenorrhea, irregular menstruation, otitis media, sinusitis, bell’s facial paralysis, eczema, dermatitis, herpes, and alopecia. This lamp features a round plate with a mineral coating consisting of 33 elements essential to the human body. The heating element allows the mineral plate to emit a special band of electromagnetic waves that coincide with the wavelengths and intensity released and absorbed by the body. The absorbed electromagnetic energy has been found to yield therapeutic effects by helping to generate beneficial biochemical stimuli that the body may lack due to illness or injury; accelerating the decomposition of dead cells; and enhancing the body’s immune function.
