Philips InfraPhil HP 3616 Infrared Lamp Massager – Review

By Arpita

Traditionally joint and muscle pains are treated with heat therapy. Heat therapy works by stimulating blood circulation in the painful areas, which helps in increasing supply of nutrients and oxygen and relaxing the sore muscles and joint tissues. We've come a long way from the traditional hot water bags and have ventured into the domain of infrared heat therapy. Among the small number of infrared lamp massagers currently available in the Indian market, Philips InfraPhil HP 3161Infrared Lamp Massager is a popular choice.

The infrared lamp features a 150 Watt bulb built in Germany. The rotatable lamp can be easily adjusted to focus the heat on the specific areas of the body. It is easy to use and works well for most people. If you need 10-minutes of heat therapy daily, you can expect the infrared bulb to last for more than two years (750 sessions).

Cons:The main downside of Philips InfraPhil HP 3161 is its high price. If you are not fastidious about buying branded products, you can easily get a quality infrared heat therapy lamp from Indian brands such as Murphy at one-third of the price.
