Self heating Hot & Cold Packs Q&A
Amazing Hot/Cold Packs
You just click the button and in a matter of seconds, the Amazing Hot/Cold Pack heats to an incredible 54 - 57º C. The heat generated provides great therapeutic benefits by relieving various muscular, arthritic, ligament or tendon aches and pains and alleviates discomforts and injuries.
How does it work?
It is made from non-toxic ingredients; sodium-acetate (salt & vinegar). When you click the button the vibration makes the salt form a crystal and as it crystallizes, it naturally heats up. When you have activated the pack, make sure you squeeze and/or massage the pack which will make it stay hot longer. The packs will stay hot for between 30 minutes and 2 hours, depending on the pack size.
Can I have it hot or cold?
If you want the Amazing Hot/Cold pack as a cold pack, you leave it in liquid form and put it in the fridge. If you want it hot, just click the button.
Can I reuse the pack?
Yes. After you have used the pack and the heat has gone, you just put it in boiling water (in a pot or sterilizing unit) for approximately 5-10 minutes. Because it is natural, the salt will melt and go back to liquid. Boiling the pack also sterilizes it so that it is fresh and ready to use for next time. To reuse the Amazing Hot/Cold Pack, just press the button again.
How many times can I use it?
You get approximately 5 years use or approximately 500 hundred clicks from each pack. You also receive a 1 year guarantee.
They are highly recommended by Physiotherapists, Chiropractors and practitioners of natural medicine because of their natural heat. It is like the heat you get when sitting in the sun; it does not burn you (54- 57 º C). The natural heat opens up the pores, lets the oxygen in and the blood circulates to that part of the body. Most of the time you have pain because blood is not circulating to that part of the body, this product helps to get the blood circulating instantly.
Furthermore, it is great for massage. It opens up the pores and allows massage oils to be more readily absorbed. It also prepares the skin for massage by bringing the blood to the surface. This reduces over-working the skin and risk of bruising.
