If you’ve ever had achy muscles, if you’ve ever pushed yourself a little too much at the gym, if you’ve ever had a sore shoulder from sleeping on it “weird”, then you likely know how much relief you can get with a good heating pad or cooling pad. Thermal-Aid and Thermal-Aid Bears are a convenient, all natural way to get that wonderful soothing relief for achy muscles, fevers, arthritis, headaches, and other aches and pains that can make you feel “blah.”
Soothing Heating Pads or Cooling Pads
The Thermal-Aid heating and cooling pack is a versatile, all-natural way to help easy achy, sore muscles. Filled with a special corn, and covered with natural cotton, the Thermal-Aid pack can be used on your ankles, back, neck – wherever you might need some extra heat or coolness. The fill has a nice weight to it which allows the pack to mold around the treatment area.
For heat treatments, simply place the Thermal-Aid into the microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute. The corn absorbs the heat from the microwave, making it an awesome heating pad. Instead of one of those gel-filled ice packs that freezes like a brick, you can put the Thermal-Aid pack in the freezer for a few hours and it becomes a moldable, shapeable ice pack. If you work out a lot, or just to be prepared, it might be a good idea to keep an extra Thermal-Aid pack in the freezer at all times, so it’s available as soon as you need it. Best of all, the Thermal-Aid is all natural and can be heated and cooled as many times as you need.
For kids, there’s something wonderfully soothing about being able to hug a warm (or cool) Thermal-Aid Bear. Just like the original Thermal-Aid, you can heat this cuddly bear up to be cozy warm when you give it a huge or chill it down to help cool and soothe. The Thermal-Aid Bear comes in five different colors and is covered in a soft, terry-cloth material. The head, arms, and legs are stuffed while the bear’s belly is filled with corn, making it very huggable and can bring a little extra comfort.
Any family with a child could certainly use a Thermal-Aid Bear, and any adult would appreciate the relief from the Thermal-Aid heating and cooling pack. You can find Thermal-Aid products in-stores at Costco, Walgreen’s and other stores nation-wide. You can also purchase Thermal-Aid online from Amazon. The Thermal-Aid heating and cooling pack starts at $19.95 for the small pack and you can snag a Thermal-Aid Bear for as low as $20.03.
