The Handi Heat brand offers safe pain relief without the fuss- in other words; no electrical pads, no ointments, and no odor. The Handi Heat warmer contains an inert mixture of iron powder, charcoal, salt, water, and vermiculite. When exposed to air, a natural reaction generates soothing heat over an extended period of time. This consistent and safe heat helps to reduce pains and aches associated with muscle stiffness, strains, arthritis, and menstrual cramps.
How does it relieve pain?
Pain due to muscle aches, arthritis, etc. can greatly reduce the quality of ones daily life. Heat therapy has been a powerful natural pain remedy for thousands of years. Here is how it works:
- Heat applied to the skin dilates blood vessels around the area of discomfort, which increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients. This helps to heal tissue.
- Heat can stimulate hot/cold sensory receptors in the skin, which decreases transmissions of pain signals to the brain. This helps to reduce discomfort.
- Heat therapy facilitates stretching of soft tissue, including muscles, connective tissues, and adhesions. This helps to decrease muscle stiffness.
