Infrared Heating Lamp

This treatment is generally coupled with acupuncture when warming the body is required or when a practitioner would like to increase yang in the body to balance energy or qi. The lamp emits infrared heat similar to the sun by radiating directly into the cells without heating the air around it. It does this without any harmfull UV rays.  This is extremely useful to aid in detoxification and also to help relax tense muscles.

Other useful functions of the lamp

    • Increase circulation
    • Weight control and calorie burning
    • Immune support
    • Pain relief
    • Warming sensation during change of seasons
    • Managing stress

Talk to your naturopathic doctor to see if this therapy is appropriate. It may not be advisable in those with fever, very high blood pressure or bleeding issues.
