Heat (or warmth) is well known for its soothing and relaxing effect and is one of mankind’s basic needs to function properly. In addition, heat has long been used as an effective form of therapy, even in prehistoric times. While the overall quality of warmth is associated with comfort and relaxation, heat therapy goes a step further and can provide both pain relief and healing benefits for many types of pain. Heat therapy can be provided quickly and inexpensively – in the form of heating pads, which can be applied safely to the affected areas. Microlife’s heating pads offer constant and individually controllable heat levels.
