This product is composed of non-toxic ingredients, namely sodium-acetate (salt & vinegar). When the button is pressed, the salt forms crystals due to vibrations, leading to the natural generation of heat. To extend the duration of heat, squeeze and massage the pack after activation. The duration of heat retention ranges from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the pack size.
This product is highly recommended by natural medicine practitioners, chiropractors, and physiotherapists due to its natural heat source, which is akin to the warmth of sunlight and does not cause burns (54-57°C). The heat generated opens up the pores, allows oxygen to penetrate the skin, and improves blood circulation to the affected area. In most cases, pain is a result of poor blood circulation, and this product helps to remedy this by increasing blood flow.
Additionally, this product can be used for massage therapy. It opens up pores, allowing massage oils to be absorbed more easily, and prepares the skin for massage by bringing blood to the surface, reducing the risk of bruising.
After use, the pack can be sterilized by boiling it in water for 5-10 minutes. As the salt is natural, it melts and returns to a liquid state. Boiling the pack also ensures it is fresh and ready for the next use.
