Benefits of Heating Pad
Heating pads offer topical heat therapy to different parts of the body. These products may help soothe aching muscles and joints and relieve pain. Research suggests that heat therapy decreases pain and increases blood flow, metabolism, and connective tissue elasticity.
Benefits of Heating Pad
The body absorbs moist warm temperature faster than the dry temperature, and therefore, penetrates deeper into the skin, promoting faster pain relief. Moist heat is shown to penetrate almost 3o times better than dry heat, which means heat penetrates deeper into sore and painful areas that dry heat cannot reach. The moist warmth boosts blood flow to the strained back or neck and relaxes muscles. Furthermore, it also increases blood circulation to brings oxygen with nutrients needed to heal the injured area and moreover take away the toxins from that region.
On the other hand, all-electric pads and saunas are used for dry heat, which draws out moisture from the skin and causes irritation.
Negative ions – Himalayan salt releases negative ions when heated and naturally found near the forest, beaches, and waterfalls. These negative ions reach the bloodstream and produce a biochemical reaction to relieve stress, alleviate depression, boost energy and increase defense against infection. The negatively loaded anions improve health and mood. Therefore, inhaling these particles may reduce mucus and inflammation in the lungs, improve respiratory conditions including, bronchitis, asthma, and sinus congestion. Further benefits of a heating pad include purifying the air and avoid respiratory illnesses and other health problems.
Positive ions – All electronics surrounding us including the electric hot pads release positive atoms. Any environment with excess positively charged anions is demonstrated to have an adverse effect on the body. These anions are small carbon dioxide molecules that enter your bloodstream from the air you breathe and negatively affect your immune system.
One of the benefits of a heating pad is that it is multi-purpose. The Salt pad is easy to use, and unlike other electric pads, it can also be used for cold therapies. The versatile heat pad is warmed in a microwave for a warm body treatment or simply put in a freezer to use as an ice pad for cold treatment. One should know when to use heat or ice for pain. A cold pad is good to slow the blood flow and reduce swelling, while a hot pad reduces muscle stiffness and boosts blood flow to the injured area.
