Heat therapy, or thermotherapy, goes all the way back to the beginning of time. Rays from the sun have acted as a remedy for skin disease in ancient Egypt and Rome. The athletes of ancient Greece notoriously took 'sunbaths' to strengthen muscles and joints in preparation for the Olympic games. The Native Americans took hot vapor baths to treat fevers, and the Chinese have been using hot stones to treat respiratory and digestive issues for centuries.
The same goes for cold therapy, or cryotherapy. The earliest documentation dates back to the Egyptians in 2500 BC. Ancient civilizations have used ice to treat inflammation, bleeding, and pain. Ice was even used as an anesthetic to numb ligaments before surgery.
Today, the benefits of using temperature as therapy can be seen throughout nearly the entire medical community and it's considered one of the leading forms of pain relief.
Using warm water or cold water, you can fill the Internal Air-Tight Water Bottle and easily insert the bottle into the Acupressure Pillow.
For hundreds of years, this salt has been used to treat ailments, such as constipation, insomnia, and fibromyalgia. Despite its name, Epsom salt is a completely different compound than table salt. It was most likely termed “salt” because of its chemical structure. When Epsom salt is dissolved in water, it releases magnesium and sulfate ions.
