When we have muscle aches, pains or sprains, strained ligaments or swollen joints, or residual tension, we may need therapeutic relief from applying either cold or warmth, either to reduce inflammation or to increase the blood circulation so it can draw out toxins and bring in nutrients. But hot water bottles and even gel packs can each have their drawbacks in terms of how well they conform to body parts; how long they remain at the desired temperature; or how well they can withstand temperatures they might inadvertently be subjected to. The Relaxus Therma Clay Packs are quite flexible (just wrap them over your body to shape them the way you like), they're both freezer safe and microwavable, and they retain their peak therapeutic temperatures much longer than traditional hot and cold packs.
