Are you getting your money’s worth when you get a professional massage? Sure, a spa massage can reduce pain in muscles and joints, but did you know you can replicate the pain-reducing power of a professional spa treatment in your own home? With so many different types of massages, it can be tough to figure out which one is best for you. There are plenty of massage techniques that rely on deep pressure, compression, and heat. Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, hot stone massage, and shiatsu are just a few examples of massages that go beyond simply pressing on someone’s back. What do those massages have in common? They all apply deep heat penetration combined with dynamic (as opposed to static) compression. For instance, a hot stone massage may involve placing smooth, hot rocks on the desired body part—often the recipient’s back. Deep muscle massage is focused on compression, or pushing down to get relief past the top layer of muscle. And shiatsu, along with other many kinds of massage, involved rolling or moving pressure. So how can you mimic all these forms of massage in the comforts of your own home? By using a unique hot cold therapy roller instead.

Therma1™ is a hand-held hot cold roller device that combines thermal (i.e., heat and cold) therapy with massage and compression. Therma1™’s magic is in its dual thermal core that can be heated or chilled. That means you can give yourself a dynamic hot stone massage, with a twist. Instead of just leaving the heat on the surface, the Therma1™ provides for Dynamic Heat Therapy – the rolling action applies heat to a greater area, and the compression means heat will penetrate deeper to soothe sore muscle tissue. Therma1™ allows you to give yourself—or better yet, have a partner give you– a professional quality massage at home. When it comes to injury relief and prevention, Therma1™ can’t be beat. Combining massage, compression, heat, and cold, Therma1™ can help speed recovery from injury and help prevent injuries in the future. So, if money and time are tight, skip the spa and get Therma1™. If you can’t bear the thought of not seeing your masseuse and listening to that transcendental spa music, go ahead to your favorite spa and take your Therma1™ with you. Your masseuse will love you for bringing another tool… one that can Roll Away The Pain™.
