Do you find yourself sitting at your desk with sore and aching muscles? What if I told you that you could spend the time that you sit at your desk giving your body a boost and healing any niggles or injuries? With heat therapy, you can do just that!
What is Heat Therapy?
It is literally as it sounds, applying heat to a localized area of the body for relief and relaxation. Heat helps your blood vessels dilate which increases the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the affected area. The increased flow of blood brings lots of nutrients and proteins to the area which help with better healing and quicker regeneration of damaged tissue.
How Does It Ease Pain?
Heat stimulates the pain receptors in your skin, decreasing the frequency of the pain signals sent to your brain.
Heat also relaxes and loosens the tissue surrounding the area being treated. This allows the ligaments, tendons and muscles to move more freely, reducing the chance of injury.
The easiest way to apply heat therapy to affected areas of your body is with a Bodyworkz Wheat Bag
