Through the absorption of infrared thermal energy, tissues are safely and gently heated resulting in increased blood flow within the treated area. Your body's natural response to this increased temperature is to maintain a condition of homeostasis€”a balanced environment or state of equilibrium throughout the body. To do this, your body responds with an increase in blood flow to the treated area.

Thermotex is a registered medical device with both Health Canada, and the US Food and Drug Administration.
Equine studies have shown therapy applications with thermal energy penetration of up to 6 cm or 2.36 inches in just 20 minutes of use. Heating pads, which provide topical conductive heat, only penetrate 2 - 3 mm. Depth of penetration substantiated in a study done by Dr. Ronald J. Riegel entitled "Thermotex Therapy System Infrared heating pad versus conventional heating pad and hot towel."
Thermotex infrared operates on the low setting at temperatures pivoting from 44C, versus heating pads that are often in excess of 55C. Our products will not burn or dehydrate the skin when used as directed.
Pain medication therapy
Most pain medications simply disrupt the body's pain signals to the brain, masking the body's ability to recognize pain, rather than removing the source or cause of that pain. The effectiveness of Thermotex in reducing and controlling your pain will in most cases allow you to reduce your pain medication intake. Thermotex provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief with no adverse side effects.
