Hot/Cold packs, heating pads and massage therapy—together they represent some of the most common ways of treating muscle and joint pain affecting millions of people. Unlike conventional hot and cold packs, Wahl’s new all-in-one Hot-Cold Therapy Vibrating Massage Gel Pack offers a powerful massaging disc for added pain relief.
The new Hot-Cold Massage Gel Pack includes a large extra thick gel pack and deep-penetrating massage disc which is inserted into the unit’s micro-fiber case. The gel pack is specially designed to contour to the user’s body. Once heated in the microwave or chilled in the freezer, the gel pack will hold its temperature for up to 30 minutes. The new Hot-Cold Massage Gel Pack offers Velcro straps to keep the pack securely in place for hands-free pain relief. The benefits of heat and massage include increased circulation to promote healing and relief of sore muscles. Cold therapy is designed to restrict blood flow to reduce swelling and inflammation. For treatments such as joint pain and soreness of the extremities, light massage plus cold therapy can help speed up the recovery.
The pulsations are a little loud, so be warned. I also wish it had a high low setting. That being said, it does work, and it works great. I would just tweak a little. It is definitely a product you need to have in your arsenal for pain management!
