New Use for our Heat Therapy Wraps

Our Far Infrared Ray Heat Therapy wraps were designed to help diminish aches and pains but we never would have thought they would help customers reduce pain after car accidents.  We want to share a story we received from a customer who unfortunately got in a car accident, but had our Elbow Wrap and got creative with it to reduce their pain:

Dear Venture Heat,

First off, I just want to say how fortunate I am for finding Venture Heat. I couldn’t say ‘thank you’ enough!

A friend and I were recently involved in a car accident the other day. I was stopped at an intersection waiting for this extremely long traffic light to turn green. Once my light finally turned green, I proceeded to drive through the intersection. But, someone from right side of the intersection ignored their red light. This speeding car ran through the red light, t-boned my car and lifted it over the front of its hood. This accident basically trashed my ten year-old car. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the only thing banged up after the accident.

As a result of this collision, my neck became extremely stiff and sore. It was to the point where I couldn’t really turn my head. My friend had trouble walking due to the blow her hip took from the side of the car. The doctors said that they couldn’t do much for the pain except for prescribing painkillers to ease any discomfort. I wasn’t too thrilled about popping pills, so I had to get creative with my therapy.

I then remembered that I bought a couple of FIR heat therapy wraps from Venture Heat for my sore joints. So I placed an elbow wrap on my neck in attempt to ease up the muscles.  Almost immediately, my neck muscles started to relax. After a couple of heating cycles, I was able to move my neck more freely than before. I then let my friend borrow my knee wrap. With her skinny legs, she was able to place it to her sore spot. The heat greatly improved her walking ability after a couple of cycles.

To sum it up, I couldn’t have imagine the pain we would have endured without these FIR heat therapy wraps. Thank you Venture Heat for making this great product!

We are so glad to hear our customer is doing well after the accident and glad that our FIR Heat Therapy wraps were put to new creative and useful tests, that seem to have worked well!

If you have a story like this, we would love to hear about it. Email us!

Is FIR Heat Therapy Safe?

Heat therapy in general can be beneficial in providing relief from deep tissue and stiff muscle pains. For this reason, heat therapy is commonly used for rehabilitation purposes.  Heat therapy is also used to decrease joint stiffness, relieve muscle spasms, reduce inflammation, and improve blood flow which leads to more nutrients and oxygen reaching the affected area for faster healing times.

As you know, the forms in which heat therapy is available in are many, ranging from electric heating pads, microwaveable packs, hot water bottles, heated cloths, ultrasounds, saunas, chemically activated patches, and Far Infrared Ray (FIR) wraps to name only a few of the multitude of applications that heat therapy encompasses.

Many methods of heat therapy require heat to be placed directly on the skin of the affected area.  The problem with this method of therapy is that high temperatures are required to penetrate beneath the skin to relieve the pain below.  Because such high heat is needed to reach the ailing area, you must protect yourself against burning your skin.
Other heat therapy products that use electrical current to produce heat often come at the cost of generating high levels of electro magnetic fields (EMFs) which have been shown to be hazardous to the health.  Ultrasound waves can also damage soft tissues if used in extended amounts.

Infrared rays are beneficial in aiding the body in the recuperation process, in particularly Far Infrared Rays.  FIR is useful in heat therapy as it has the ability to transfer its energy deeper beneath the skin than direct contact methods do.

The Sun itself produces Infrared Rays which our bodies then absorb. Infrared Rays differ from Ultra Violet Rays (UV) which the Sun also produces.  Infrared Rays will never burn your skin or increase carcinogenic agents in the body.  A great feature of FIR is that the body will continually to absorb the rays and have positive reactions to it.

FIR has now been implemented into heat therapy wraps that are designed to fit a specific area on the body.  VentureHeat’s FIR Heat Therapy Wraps combine the positive wellness attributes associated with FIR and eliminate virtually all EMF’s by using safer and lower voltages to power the heat.

Most heat therapy devices in the market today use a high-voltage energy source between 100-120 Volts, which can be both dangerous and expensive. VentureHeat’s products are guaranteed safe because they use a low 12-Volt DC Voltage for the Plugin Series and a 7.4 Lithium Ion Battery for the Rechargeable series.
