I purchased the Thermotex Platinum a little while ago and found it helped immediatly. I use it on my lower back from a fall a few years ago ( I am using it as I writing this at my desk)I also use it on a bad left knee and on my hands for arthritis pain. I have used regular heat pads and this product is not even in the same league. I have recommended it to friends and are ordering it or will in the near future after trying mine. Would not live without it. Thanks for offering it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

NOT FOR ME
I'm one of those people who will try anything for pain management. Unfortunately this product did not do it for me. I found the pad uncomfortable, because it was firm it actually felt like it was creating more discomfort. The heating element did not heat up, warm was about as good as it got. NO DEEP HEAT HERE!! For myself I find warm to hot baths work way better for my pain. Overall I think it's great that it's helping others, but not this girl.. I returned it. Sorry TSC, this product was a BOMB for me.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I bought this to help me with my arthritis and itfeels absolutely wonderful. I still use my Kalayapain rub because there is a place for both of these products. My husband who suffered a severe spinal injury a number of years ago also uses thethermotex and it does give him enough relief that he is able to sleep through the night.
Deep Healing Warmth
from Winnipeg, MB
I purchased this Thermotex Platinum Infrared Heating Pad a week after I was diagnosed with Adhesive Capsulitis.It has been a godsend as the deep heating made the treatments a lot more bearable.The flexibility of this heating pad makes it easy to mold around the areas that need treatment.

I have recurring upper back problems in the shoulder and neck area. Using the Thermotex Platinuim as directed has given me tremendous relief from pain in the shoulders. However, we need one to specifically address the neck and upper shoulder area....something similar to a shawl. I have purchased and tried other heating pads which gave only minimal relief and shortly after they were removed the pain returned. I too find this item somewhat cumbersome to use and will also say that whatever effort it took was well worth it. Using it daily has created a very manageable pain solution. This is not a cure for my condition. However it makes life so much easier. Sincerely hope the company makes something to work around the upper shoulder and neck area.One day after shovelling heavy snow my lower back was very painful. One treatment, as directed, brought excellent relief and I was pain free in this area. Even the next day when I returned to more shovelling, with a smaller shovel this time!Thank you, Shopping Channel for making this product available at such a reasonable price. I bought it as a show stopper.
Not Comfortable for Sitting
I suffer from neuropathic pain. Heat is comforting and I found this product did have good heating capability. However, my problem is when I am sitting and I found this product very uncomfortable and certainly could not have used it while driving or as a passenger. I regret that I did have to return it.

I don't know if I had a heating pad that wasn't functioning properly but it only got barely warm to the touch at the highest setting. I returned it.

I like the thermotex platinum pad for on my back, legs, arms. The warmth feels good and I believe it helps more than a heating pad. It is uncomfortable to use on the neck though. That's disappointing because I get a lot of neck pain. I'm still unsure if I'm keeping it....

Thermtex Is now Part of My World and Bac
from Montreal, Quebec
When I received my Thermtex product for my back I was a bitter worried but I remember the video on the shopping channel and it said to give it a month. I am close to the month and it has been a God send for my back. I could not walk more than 5 minutes. Now I am up to 1/2 hour and it's just been less than a month. I am thrilled and would recommend this product for people having back problems.

It's been a terrible winter for shovelling snow and my heating pad and pain cream were my constant companions with little help. I ordered this and the first time I tried it, I thought "What's the difference?" The next morning I got my answer. I didn't need the cream and haven't used it in the next two weeks. I have a bad back so I make sure to use this pad daily. I would like to see a better dial.
