The Thera-Pearl Contour Pack is a wonderful item to have on hand for sports injuries, muscle injuries or even as a therapy or soothing tool for headaches or bruising.
I personally often use this heated in the microwave when I have a headache. It brings relief and a sense of comfort as my mother would heat hot towels and apply them to my forehead when I was having a headache as a child. Moist heat offers me great relief when I am suffering from the effects of a headache and, with this, I can heat it up in the microwave and retire to a darkened bedroom to try to relax until the pain dissipates.
The Thera-Pearl Contour Pack can also be used for cold therapy. You just place it in the freezer for a period of time to cool it sufficiently and apply it to muscle aches or pain. My son actually prefers the cold pack to the hot pack for his headaches and my husband often uses it in the cold form for an aching back under orders from his chiropractor.
The company offers other designs that can be used over the eyes or on the knees specifically but the Contour Pack is very versatile. It can be used in place of other specific use types of Thera-Pearl products.
