Open the sachet to activate the patch. Peel off the protective film. Apply the patch to the site of the pain. The patch will start to warm up within 5 minutes reaching its effective temperature after 15 minutes.
How are the heat patches used?
Apply directly on to clean, dry, non-greasy skin. They are held in place by a low-irritancy adhesive, while the flexible hinged design allows them to move with your body. Discreet, slim and odourless, they can be worn under clothes wherever you are. They can be used on their own or with oral pain relief medicines.

How does heat therapy help?
Heat therapy helps treat the underlying cause of back and muscle pain in two ways:
By increasing blood flow to the painful area
By relaxing tight, sore, muscles
This helps you to get active again as soon as possible, which many doctors agree is vital in speeding up the recovery process.
