Though cramps and muscle aches may be quite common, they are never fun to deal with. However, there is a way to find quick and soothing relief right at home, no matter what kind of cramping you're experiencing. With heat therapy, you can deliver powerful and therapeutic warmth directly to the area that needs it. Not only is it an easy and effective method, it's also one of the best ways to get natural relief.

Muscle Cramps
Muscle cramps come on suddenly and often without any warning at all. These involuntary contractions can happen in your arms, legs, calf, feet or abdominal area and you will likely feel a quick spasm or tightening in the area. Most often, these cramps are brought on by overworking your body while exercising, especially in the heat. They can also be brought on when you don't drink enough water, fail to properly stretch your muscles before a workout or lack good circulation. 

Treating muscle cramping can often be done on your own. Start by massaging the area where the muscle is seized up as well as stretching, if it is not too painful. Warming the area with a heating pad can also result in soothing relief as the heat can help to restore the flow of blood.
