As a somewhat clumsy mom with two very active boys, it goes without saying that we have our fair share of bumps, bruises, strains and sprains in this house. In fact, in the last week alone my youngest son got a black eye playing with his brother, my oldest scraped his knee racing in the back yard and I managed to both strain my shoulders hunching over my computer and sprain my finger playing football with my siblings.
With minor injuries being a fairly major part of our lives, having plenty of first-aid treatment available is a must and recently I had the chance to test out a new option for both hot and cold therapy for minor injuries. THERA°PEARL packs are innovative and reusable packs filled with pearl technology beads that can either be microwaved to provide heat therapy or frozen and used cold. I received an assortment of THERA°PEARL products to test out and I was very excited to give them a try.
Of course, both of my boys immediately fell in love with the THERA°PEARL Pals Frog, an adorable frog-shaped pack perfect for bumps and bruises. In fact, when Benjamin got his black eye, the first thing I did was take out the pack and let him use it on the bruise. Not only did the cold help with the swelling, but getting to hold the cheery little frog helped Benjamin to feel better too!
My own personal favourite product was the THERA°PEARL Neck Wrap. Working on a computer all day, I occasionally get very stiff and aching shoulders and in the past, I’d usually just take a painkiller and wait for the aches to work their way out. Sometimes it would take days for the pain to completely fade away and it always made life more difficult. Now, I simply microwave the Neck Wrap, wrap it around my shoulders and enjoy almost instant relief thanks to the muscle-relaxing warmth!
For my own not-too-infrequent bumps and bruises, the THERA°PEARL Sports Pack and Contour Pack are a great choice since they’re a convenient size and easy to use. I like to keep one in the freezer and the other by the microwave so that I’m ready for whatever minor injury I might be treating. And the Contour Pack’s adjustable strap is so handy for hands-free treatment when I’m just too busy to sit holding a THERA°PEARL pack in place!
