Cryo (Cold) Therapy 55º-68º F
Constricts blood vessels and encourages the lymphatic system to clear fluids and damaged tissue by-products. Swelling is reduced and an analgesic effect is produced.
Heat Therapy 104º-112º F
Increases blood flow and relaxes muscle fibers while a rolling motion gently stretches sore muscles.
Room Temperature Therapy
Instead of using the thumbs, the tactile surface allows practitioners to concentrate on intimate muscle and fiber stretching. Offers healing pressure for both practitioner and client.
Instruction - How To Heat And Cool Thermalballs
To cool, simply place the ball in a refrigerator, freezer, or on ice.
To warm, submerge in water and heat in a crockpot. Heat with water no hotter than 120F or 49C
It is not recommended to put thermalball, icyball, or r3d ball in the microwave. If you do use a microwave to heat, the ball MUST be submerged in water and heated in water for two minutes only. Water will be hot. Do not reach body parts directly into hot water and be careful when removing the ball from the hot water.
