Other Therapies

Mineral Infrared Therapy

Mineral infrared therapy originated in China and has been used for literally hundreds of conditions over the past 20 years. Many of these conditions are musculoskeletal in nature while others relate to organ systems.

In China, the TDP InfraRed lamp has been used for over twenty years, treating millions of patients for hundreds of ailments. While TDP is the abbreviation of the Chinese phonetic alphabet, the lamp is also sometimes referred to as Mineral Infrared Therapy.

The Mineral Infrared Therapy theory states that the frequencies of the minerals in the lamp have direct effects on the same minerals in our bodies. The lamp’s mineral frequencies convert the minerals in our bodies to the necessary form so that they may perform their many functions. The lamp head is positioned approximately 12-16 inches away from your body for 10 to 15 minutes.
