Natural Pain Relief
The Anti-Stress Shoulder Wrap provides natural pain relief in a number of ways. Deep penetrating heat increases blood flow which facilitates nutrients to the affected area while flushing out the injured debris. Heat also stimulates the bodies natural metabolic rate which helps promote faster healing. Activating heat receptors at the site of the injury also help block the effect of the chemical messengers that cause pain. Dr. Brian King, a leading researcher in the field of pain describes it this way: “Heat doesn’t just provide comfort and have a placebo effect – it actually deactivates the pain at a molecular level in much the same way as pharmaceutical painkillers work.”
Sports researchers at the University of Medicine and Dentistry in New Jersey have also concluded that heat wrap therapy is more effective for relieving lower back pain than over the counter drugs such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen. If you can avoid the use of pharmaceuticals to treat pain you are doing yourself a great favour. Over the counter pain medicine has been linked to kidney, liver and gastrointestinal diseases. Natural heat therapy also provides many other benefits such as muscle relaxation and increased flexibility that pain medication can not.
Anti-Stress Shoulder Wraps can also be used for cold therapy treatments. Simply place in the freezer for 2 hours (in a plastic bag). Cold therapy can reduce swelling and inflammation by providing vasoconstriction of blood vessels. This process stops fluid from travelling to the injury where swelling occurs and permits better fluid drainage. Cold reduces muscle spasms and tightens muscles allowing them a more stable environment for healing to take place.

Natural Stress Relief
An Anti-Stress Shoulder Wrap provides natural stress relief in a number of ways including: muscle relaxation, improving circulation and release of endorphins. Anti Stress Shoulder wraps have aromatherapy benefits too. Research has shown that aromatherapy can reduce the perception of stress, increase contentment and decrease levels of cortisol (the “stress hormone”) in the body.
