The TDP lamp is a specific electromagnetic lamp that produce far infrared (below visible light) emissions (2–50 micro-metre range, just in case you were wondering). TDP is an acronym for “Teding Diancibo Pu” which loosely translated means specific electromagnetic spectrum. The lamp is used in several hospitals in China and Japan to increase microcirculation, to loosen fascia and muscles, and to accelerate the natural healing processes of the body.
the TDP lamp is different from other far-infrared heating devices. It contains a heated mineral plate made of a proprietary formula of 33 trace elements, which stimulates your body to heal naturally.
Who would benefit from TDP lamp?
Anybody with muscles tightness, inflammation, or pain. The treatment is usually done on the neck, back, shoulders, knees, elbows, or ankles to recover faster from an injury (such as motor vehicle accident) and reduce pain. It can also be used for lower abdominal (cramping or period pain).
What to expect when getting a treatment?
A treatment with TDP lamp feels like a gentle sensation of heat and patients say that the treatment feels very relaxing. We usually used it together with or after cupping treatment.

How Long Is Treatment?
Acupuncture treatments are highly personalized and can vary in length. The first session includes a health consultation to learn more about you and your ailments and may take up to an hour or more. Treatments themselves can last between 30 minutes to an hour. These relaxing treatments are not only great to unwind and relieve stress, they can ease pain and help improve sleep.
When Will I Feel Better?
This can vary quite a bit depending on your condition. Some patients feel better right after their first acupuncture session, others need a few treatments before feeling relief. How often treatment is needed is also unique to you and your condition. We often see patients need fewer treatments for acute issues, with chronic conditions requiring visits more often and for longer periods of time. Get in touch with us and we can discuss what your treatment would look like.
