The Far Infrared Mineral Lamp was invented by a group of scientists in China, headed by Dr. Gou Wenbin. Early in the 1970’s, an odd and interesting phenomenon was noted at a century-old ceramic factory in rural China. The workers there stood in mud (clay) for much of the work day and the new production manager recognised these working conditions, becoming concerned that the workers would be troubled with arthritis and other related ailments, due to standing on the cold, sodden floor for long period of time.
The ensuing investigations disclosed that the side-effects of standing in the mud were the opposite of original concerns. They found that there was not a single case of arthritis among the workers. A full-scale scientific investigation revealed a single anomaly: an electromagnetic reading in the far-infrared spectrum emanating from the kiln used to fire the ceramics. Analysis of a metallic slag in the kiln, accumulated over years of buildup, showed it was made up of 33 minerals. These minerals happen to correspond with 33 essential minerals in the human body, and when heated sufficiently, radiate far-infrared energy exactly like the human body.
The term TDP Lamp is an abbreviation for ‘Teding Diancibo Pu’, which translated means ‘special electromagnetic spectrum’. In China, Korea and Norway nearly 200 hospitals and universities have conducted extensive experiments using the TDP Mineral Lamp on animals, plants and humans. This lamp projects a narrow band of infrared rays that are specifically suited to subsurface penetration of problem areas of the human body. It promotes localised warmth and comfort, as well as deep penetration. Infrared treatment has been proven to promote blood circulation, improve microcirculation and promote tissue growth.
The TDP Lamp has been used by physical therapists, chiropractors and other healthcare practitioners for the past 16 years. The Far Infrared Mineral Lamp can be used for muscular aches and pains, soft tissue injuries and many other problems.
Benefits of Far Infrared waves on the human body :
- Rejuvenation of cells
- Promotion of blood circulation
- Faster recovery from muscle strains
- Improvement in lymphatic system
- Expansion of capillary vessels
Using the lamp helps heal soft tissue damage, strains, sports injuries and wound infections where localised warmth provides comfort and promotes the healing process. The lamp has also been used successfully to reduce the unsightly effects of acne, neuro-dermatitis and eczema.
Echolife sells TDP lamps in four models: large head floor lamp, small head floor lamp, dual-head floor lamp, and a desk lamp.
