Warmth is a basic human need. Where it is warm, we feel comfortable.
It's the same for our body: Heat stimulates the blood circulation, it can relieve pain and it helps the organism to regenerate. Neck and headaches, tension and back problems can be relaxed with warmth and promote regeneration, even acute complaints can be alleviated.
Heat therapy is applied locally, i.e. at the affected site. Medical heat therapy is mostly used to treat diseases of the musculoskeletal system, especially neck pain, chronic back pain and joint problems.
