Soothes aches, relieves pressure, reduces stress.
MICROWAVE PREPARATION: Clean microwave to eliminate food particles and/or fluid residue. These particles and residues can create hot spots in Therabeads. THERABEADS PREPARATION: Place product in clean microwave and heat at full power for 30 seconds. (For non-carousel type microwaves, heat 15 seconds and then rotate pack 180 degrees for an additional 15 seconds). Touch test Therabeads pack before using. NOTE: 30 seconds of heating should bring Therabeads to the desired temperature. However, if more heat is desired by the user, continue to heat at 15 second intervals until the desired temperature is reached. Always touch test after each additional 15 second intervals. Due to variable power and heat characteristics of microwave ovens, lightly touch test the product to determine uniform safe heat levels prior to applying to treatment area. This is important for all individuals, but especially those who have diabetes, circulatory conditions or altered temperature sensitivity at the treatment site. Apply to treatment area. NOTE: PROPER USE AND MAINTENANCE: Allow Therabeads to recover moisture from the air and restore themselves for continued use. However, always allow the moist heat pack to rest for a minimum of 2 hours before reheating. (Dryer climates may require additional time). This will allow the Therabeads pack to re-absorb moisture from the air. PROCEDURE FOR CLEANING: Only surface wipe (clean water only) with damp cloth if Therabeads pack becomes soiled. Allow to air dry thoroughly before storage or use. DO NOT immerse in any type of liquid solution-this will destroy the Therabeads product. DO NOT machine wash-this will destroy the Therabeads product.
IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU CONSULT A PHYSICIAN PRIOR TO USE IF YOU: have diabetes; have circulatory problems; are experiencing serious acute pain; are experiencing persistent chronic pain; are experiencing altered temperature sensitivity at the treatment site. FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS TO AVOID INJURY: The user must cleanse treatment area from body lotions, oils or gels prior to the application of the product. Contact with lotions, oils or gels can alter the effectiveness of Therabeads.
