Pain loves heat therapy

Did you know that the power of heat is one of the most natural and ancient forms of pain therapy ever used? Heat helps whether you have cramps, an ear infection or muscle tension. But which products should you use for heat therapy? Let’s find out together what solutions are best for you, and here's also some advice about when to use heat therapy with complete peace of mind.

It's advice that's been passed down from ancient times: known as heat therapy, it takes advantage of the beneficial effects of heat when applied locally to alleviate the sensation of pain. It was our ancestors, through their own experiences, who taught us that fever can reactivate and increase our ability to heal.

If you want to move around freely, choose a patch

Does your neck, back or shoulder hurt? Are you having period pains? Then the product that's right for you is probably the heat patch, because it lets you cover all of the painful area better than other solutions can - with no risk of falling off. And it releases continuous heat for 8 hours. Another benefit worth noting: heat therapy with a patch lets you move around freely, even in cases of chronic injury, without restricting you in any way.

The best remedy for cramps is a hot water bottle

We all know that cramps can really knock you out and you have to stop everything you're doing. But don't get too upset - maybe the best solution for helping you with the pain could be the traditional hot water bottle. The heat it releases increases blood flow and helps to relax tense muscles while also relieving the pain, and by using it this way you'll be back to normal in no time. Keep in mind that you can also use this method of heat therapy for your period pains... it works just as well as the heat patch!

Heat therapy will help you have sweet dreams

If you have an ear infection, one remedy you'll like is the heat gel pad, especially for when you're sleeping. Think about it - you can rest your head on this soft little cushion and it will reduce the extent of inflammation by increasing the metabolism of the cells, bringing you immediate relief from the pain. It's also good to be aware that heat therapy stimulates how the immune system works, which is the part of our bodies that is in charge of our natural defenses. The heat pad is also good for neck pain and sciatica. One piece of advice about how to use it? To heat it up in a flash, immerse it in boiling water or put it in the microwave for a few minutes.
