from oakville, ON
I have both gold and platinum - one upstairs in my bed, and one downstairs on the sofa, and wherever I am siting, I have one of these working its magic on my poor old back. The only thing I wish for was a portable battery pack, so I could also use it standing. I'm not good at maneuvering around attached to the cord plugged into wall.Thank you
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Seems to Work
from Sudbury, Ontario
I bought the Gold and Platinum Thermotex. At the time I had stiffness along both sides fo my spine - probably from snow shovelling. It wasn't getting better until I used the Gold. Now I have no stiffness pain and I use the Gold once a day for prevention.My husband uses the Platinum for a rotator cup problem, leg pain and back pain. He says that it is too soon to tell if it is the Thermotex or the massage therapist that is helping, but he uses it frequentlhy during the day.What is a definite change is that we are no longer buying the heat wraps that are used once and then thrown in the garbage, so score one for the environment and score one for our wallets.

I purchased this specifically to treat lower back pain and it serves the purpose beautifully . The hardness of the backing is exactly what I wanted to treat my back in a sitting position . It provides firm support wherever you place it and the heat is very soothing . So far though it does not totally eliminate the pain and I doubt that it really will , but it provides relief and comfort and that is worth a great deal . I use it every day , twice a day and am satisfied with the results .
from Ancaster, Ont.
In my opinion this is a 5 star product. I suffer from severe lower back spasms which leave me in agony and unable to function for days. I was in the middle of one of these spasms when I saw Thermotex on TSC. I was a little uncertain that it could do what it said but I ordered the gold and am I glad I did! I use it twice a day right now and will reduce to once a day in a week or so and see how that works for me.My husband has also tried it for his arthritic pain in his back and he thinks it is helping him too so we might be buying the platinum in the near future. Anyway, right now I am pain free and hope to stay that way thanks to Thermotex.
l love this product thermotex.l've had really bad backaches and leg pain l was taking pain pills lots of crèmes to rub on..nothing would make me feel better .Thermotex gold helped me and now l can move around without being hunched over all the time.Best purchase l ever made.My son inlaw calls me old timer but l feeling great Whatever works.l would recommend this highly 5 stars..Maybe get the foot and platinum too ..

CAN NOT GET ANY BETTER
I already own the platinum and love it, just received the gold and the foot Thermotex, I like the platinum one out of all of them but I use the gold one to sit on for my sciatic with the platinum on my back (I prefer to own two of them so that I only have to sit for 45 minutes for back and sciatic). Works really well as long as you follow instructions - high for 15 minutes then low for 45 minutes twice a day is imperative. My daughter is diabetic and is using the foot Thermotex which is helping her feet, I have arthritis in my toes and it seems to be helping. Can not go wrong owning this but must follow instructions and it takes a few weeks to start noticing the improvement.
Amazing Product that Works!
My husband pulled a muscle in his back this past week carrying bags of salt to his truck, he had a hard time walking without a shooting pain going right up his back. I gave him a heating pad to use for the pain,and he found no great relief from it, it just got really hot. My father had purchased a thermotex gold system a few months back and told him to try it, my husband used it and by the second day he was amazed at the results, his range of movement had improved alot. He could bend and move side to side, without the shooting pain. He was so impressed with the thermotex gold unit,it saved him from going to physiotherapy and taking unnecessary pain medication. This product made all the difference in speeding up the healing process so he can get back to work. We already have ordered our own Thermotex Gold unit for ourselves, Its a great product that works truly amazing.

If you need heat therapy this is it.
from MUSQUODOBOIT HARBOUR, NS
I purchased my Thermotex Therapy "Platinum" System over 2 years ago for a much higher price. The "Platinum" system has 3 disks instead of one. The pros totally outweigh the cons.I have 2 ruptured disks, a fractured tailbone and sciatica on both sides. Surgery will repair the damage. Narcotics and muscle relaxers are medications I'd rather not take. I used it twice a day, first thing before I do my exercises given to me by my physiotherapist and at least for 30 minutes at night. Yes it is hard but you don't need to put pressure on the pads for it to work. The heat is "infrared" not like the average style heating pad. This thermal heat penetrates and can remain for hours.If you find it too hot, put a towel over the pad to absorb some of the heat. I've used mine in my car, sitting on the couch or while lying in bed with my legs raised on a knee wedge (great time to do some deep breathing by the way).

Gold pad is good - Platinum is awesome!!
First have to explain that I purchased the Thermotex "Platinum" pad about 4 years ago. The Gold is one big pad but Platinum has 3 pieces inside the pad so therefore makes the pad flexible. It literally gave me my life back so I went ahead and purchased a second one to make sure I was never without one. I get recurring back spasms and would be laid up for days in agony - until I purchased the Thermotex Platinum! Meds didn't help and had bad side effects. To my huge relief I found out that sitting back comfortably on the Platinum pad for a couple of hours would finally release the spasms and pain. I now make sure that anytime I sit down to watch TV etc. I sit on the pad as it helps to prevent a flare up. I recently ordered this Gold pad for my husband. I tried it and I agree it is a little hard for me as I don't have a lot of meat on my bones. For anyone who is thin or not muscular they would find the Platinum much more comfortable. I start on high setting and then after 10 minutes it does get very warm so I reduce it to low. Sometimes if I want to get ontop of the pain faster I will continue to alternate back and forth from Hi to Low. Although I like the Platinum better myself I have nothing but good to say about Thermotex products! I have used one of my pads so much that after 4 years I wore out the covering and I find the customer service in Calgary is excellent!! If this was the Platinum pad it would get 5 stars instead of 4.
