As nature's original pain reliever, heat therapy helps alleviate a wide range of injuries from the neck and shoulders down to the knees and ankles. Unlike over the counter medicines, bandages and messy gels and creams, heat therapy is a sensible, no nonsense alternative for tending to your aches and pains. Simple, practical and efficient, heat therapy is a cost-effective and reliable solution.

From the practice of thermal baths to the idea of healing sunlight, using heat as a therapy for pain has been practiced since the early ages. Methods including hot vapor baths, mud baths and hot stones were once used to treat everything from infections and fevers to blisters and illnesses. Continued through the years, today heat therapy is widely considered to be an accessible, straightforward option to ease discomfort.

Working to help deliver nutrients in your joints and muscles once again, the heat deeply penetrates the stiff joints and sore muscles, improving circulation and encouraging gentle healing. As such, they're more prone to relieve pain faster. The next time you have an ache in your lower back or an inflamed shoulder acting up again, skip the medicine cabinet and give heat therapy a try instead.
