HotHeal Therapy

Heat has long been established as a modality for treating pain issues, especially in the joints, muscles and ligaments.

It is actively used by physiotherapists, traditional Chinese medicine, as well as other healthcare practitioners. A heat pack or infrared heat lamp are also very commonly used by patients applying self-treatments for minor injuries.

A common limitation for many of these heat treatment options is that heat is unable to penetrate deeply into the injured area, resulting only in a warm effect in the superficial skin and subcutaneous layer (under the skin). Also the amount of heat energy that can be applied is limited because the skin is sensitive to temperature and will feel “too hot” before enough healing can be stimulated.

HotHeal Therapy is a proprietary therapy approach based on established European medical technology to send a healing energy very deeply into an injured area.

It stimulates the body’s natural healing ability to recover from pain and injury.

The underlying medical technology used during Hotheal Therapy is supported by multiple medical studies and has been used by leading professional sports teams, hospitals and clinics across Europe for accelerated healing and pain relief.

There are 3 Keys To Successful Hotheal Therapy:

1) Medical Technology

What To Expect When I Visit The Pain Relief Clinic

A typical visit will involve our doctor first understanding your medical history, concerns and previous experience with other pain treatments.

For patients who have consulted many people but have yet to receive a clear diagnosis, selecting an affordable imaging scan might be recommended to confirm the cause of your pain..

Some patients have already done scans with other doctors for their pain condition but are still not clearly told what they suffer from.

Dr Terence Tan is happy to offer you a second opinion and recommend how best to manage your condition.

We also see patients who already have a confirmed diagnosis from specialist pain doctors, but are "stuck” because treatment options offered are not practical or acceptable.

We can help by discussing options that you might have potentially never been told of.

A common experience is when a patient has already consulted a specialist doctor for pain management and is told to consider orthopaedic surgery which they find too aggressive.

Or they may have seen doctors for their pain and were prescribed painkillers with potential side effects which made them feel uncomfortable.

Many of our patients have also first tried complementary treatments or acupuncture with traditional Chinese pain doctors.

They look for a second opinion after finding any relief experienced from other treatments to be temporary or requiring repetitive treatments, which add up to time and cost.

Especially in such situations, we emphasize using non-invasive medical technology you likely have not been told about .

This can make a big difference to your results.
