Heat Therapy: Heat increases blood flow and makes connective tissue more flexible. It temporarily decreases joint stiffness, pain, and muscle spasms. Heat also helps reduce inflammation and the buildup of fluid in tissues (edema). Heat therapy is used to treat inflammation (including various forms of arthritis), muscle spasm, and injuries such as sprains and strains. This well constructed, easy-to-use lamp is an award winning design developed and manufactured in China. It alleviates aches and pains as well as other symptoms in a wide range of aliments by assisting the bodys natural healing process. The lamp projects a narrow band of infrared rays that are specifically suited to subsurface heating of the human body. This type of heat increases blood circulation to injured areas, promoting tissue repair. Using the lamp helps heal soft tissue damage, strains, sports injuries and wound infections where localised warmth provides comfort and promotes the healing proces. The lamp has also been used successfully to reduce the unsightly effects of acne, neuro-dermatitis and eczema. Burns, and bedsores also respond well to infrared heat therapy. The floor model, CQ-27 with castors for easy movement is ideal for professional use.
