If you’re nursing limb or joint problems ranging from sports injuries to arthritis, conventional flat hot or cold packs miss the mark — literally. They provide only partial coverage of the traumatized area because of their rectangular construction and inability to bend when frozen.
New Herb Pack Therapy from Nature Creation conquers those flaws with a patented comfort design that completely encircles the area with heat or cold for faster and better treatment.
Nature Creation is a manufacture of family of reusable herbal pack sleeves that roll over the wrist, elbow, knee, thigh or other body part through a center opening. These innovative packs wrap the limb or joint in a flexible, cushion-like cylinder that stays in position without straps, wraps, ties or holding for rapid hands-free use.
The resulting 360-degree coverage allows the entire circumference of the injured area to be treated at one time instead of in stages as required with a flat pack. The proprietary gel filling and
polyurethane outer film stay soft when frozen or heated to allow the pack to mold to the body, ensuring deep hot or cold penetration of soft tissues. Together, these features reduce treatment
time, provide faster pain relief, keep swelling to a minimum, and increase overall effectiveness.
Used hot, the Nature Creation herbal packs provide soothing surround-the-limb relief for arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, muscle aches, post-operative pain and more. They heat in the microwave in about one minute or two, and their ability to be used repeatedly can save hundreds of dollars over expensive one-time-use hot packs.
Used cold, Nature Creation herb packs provide first aid for acute soft tissue injuries, tennis elbow and other conditions that require cold applications to combat swelling, pain and bruising. The insulating protective cover solution that comes with each pack to protect the skin from extreme temperatures also supplies slight compression, allowing the herbs to address two of the four steps in the RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) method of injury treatment.
Nature Creation Hot/Cold Therapy herbal packs are toxic-free, natural and can go from freezer to microwave and back over and over again. The Nature Creation herbal packs are available in various shape and colors for and sell for $19.95 to $74.95 at www.naturecreation.com.
