My Body Wrap arrived today and I am absolutely loving it already! I’m dealing with constant pain right now in my left arm and shoulder from an injury I had earlier in the year. Heat and cold are the only things that seem to really work. The heat it gives off is amazing – totally blows my old heating pad away – & the smell is wonderfully soothing. Can’t thank you enough Warm Buddy Co.!!!!!
The Body Wrap has amazing long heat holding ability! I love the fragrance.
No more running to the kitchen to heat hot water bottles. I pop it into the microwave and snuggle into bed with a good book and warm away those aches and pains.
Natural Pain Relief
A Body Wrap provides pain relief in several 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.
A Body Wrap 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
A Body Wrap provides natural stress relief in a number of ways including: muscle relaxation, improving circulation and release of endorphins. Body 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.
