What it is:
The Thermotex™ Platinum Personal Therapy System produces infrared heating to help provide deep, penetrating warmth for temporary relief of acute and chronic pain. Not your ordinary heating pad, this convenient therapy system helps treat the source of your pain—not just the symptoms. It can be used at home, in the office, while driving (using a power inverter, which is not included) or on vacation, to help provide temporary pain relief whenever you need it.

Who it is for:
The Platinum Therapy System is ideal for those who want temporary relief from minor muscle and joint pain and stiffness, joint pain associated with arthritis, muscle spasms, minor strains and sprains and minor muscular back pain. It is also ideal for those who want muscular relaxation and a temporary increase of local blood circulation.

What it does:
The Platinum Personal Therapy System is used to help treat muscle and joint pain with deep penetrating heat that safely and gently warms the muscle tissue layer from the inside out. The design makes it ideal for any part of the body, allowing for wrappability around a limb and for flat use on the back and stomach areas.

The infrared pads help deliver a superior amount of Far Infrared light to the treatment area. Through the absorption of infrared thermal energy, muscle tissue is safely and gently heated, resulting in increased blood flow at the treatment area. Your body's natural response to this increased temperature is to maintain a condition of homeostasis—a balanced environment or state of equilibrium throughout the body. To do this, your body responds by increasing blood flow to the treated area. The depth of penetration is measured as approximately 6cm/2.3" after just 20 minutes of use. Traditional heating pads provide conductive heat that only penetrates 2-3mm, which can also burn and dehydrate the skin. Thermotex™ therapy pads produce a radiant light wave that is absorbed deeply into the body, resulting in stimulation of blood flow. 

What else you need to know:
• Thermotex™ is a proudly Canadian brand
• This product is top rated by The Shopping Channel customers
• It is used by professional athletes and Olympians for prevention and recovery of injury
• It has been used by medical professionals for over 20 years and is still prescribed and implemented as part of their therapy
• According to the Canadian Pain Society, one in five Canadians suffer from chronic pain, and pain accounts for up to 78% of visits to emergency rooms

What is included:

• Thermotex™ Platinum Personal Therapy System 
• Indications for Use Booklet

I Love this product

By Terri

from Essex, Ontario

Bronze Reviewer

I bought this 3 plus years ago and would buy another in a minute if anything happened to this. I think the people who were dissatisfied did not understand it. They were looking for a heating pad. They need to understand infra red light and how it heals. If given the time and the consistency of use there is definitely healing. I use it on my knees they are so much better and when I stop they get worse again. I use it on my back and have used it on my dogs who are performance dogs and have greatly benefited from it. It is great for acute and chronic pain. follow the instructions and be consistent.

Enjoying it daily

By V, demi-goddess

from Toronto, Ontario

Bronze Reviewer

Wonderful treatment for my various ailments (sciatica, fibromyalgia, trigger points all over body, tension due to stress) - using it practically every day....on the days I don't get to my physio treatments, I can rely on getting pain relieved at home. Way better than a traditional heating pad !! Wish it was not so expensive (that is why I took 1 star off) but it was definitely worth it - anything that helps to reduce pain naturally and stimulates healing process - priceless !!!

Loving it so far

By Roni the Writer

from Vancouver, BC

First, to those who complain about the product being too stiff, etc. -- this is fully disclosed, if you had read / watched about the product. Considering that there are many rows of jade stones inside, I think it's reasonable to expect this. This is the reason that Thermotex makes several versions for different areas of the body. Even so, I have used the larger Platinum model quite successfully on my knee, using the Velcro straps provided.

As for the heat, it's not supposed to be "hot." As directed, pre-heat it on 'high' for 15 minutes and then turn down to 'low' for use. Infrared heat works differently in the body: it's the actual waves of energy that penetrate, not the "heat." That is the therapeutic value, even if you don't "feel it" as much. Certain gemstones give off IR heat, such as the jade in this product, as well as amethyst and tourmaline. If you have ever used an infrared sauna, you would know that they don't make you "hot" the way regular saunas do.

As for me, the Thermotex works very well and seems to be a high-quality product: well made, performs perfectly, quality materials -- and much more reasonable than its competitors, I might add. I am also pleased to support a Canadian company.

I've been using this for a couple of weeks now and I do believe it has been helping my chronic low back pain. I have not had any spasms for several days now. :)))

-->> Highly recommended! < < --

Not that hot

By ErnieW

from Saskatoon, SK

Bronze Reviewer

I purchased this product due to my current $20 heating pad finally quit working after 15+ years. I found this heating pad very stiff and it was hard to mold to parts of the body like shoulders and legs. I found it did not have enough heat. I can't see how it supposed to penetrate up to 2.5 inches. I had a lot more heat retention with my old heating pad than this one. I found my heating pad still in production online for $16.

Use it everyday

By Helen

from Ontario

I have had my thermatex for about 3 years. It took about a week to get the initial benefits. I had severe pain in my neck , mid back and lower back. I have it in my chair and whenever I feel pain I sit for 15 min and the pain subsides, I use it lying down as well as for tummy pains. I would not be without this product as it is the best pain reliever I have ever used, The key is to use it on a regular basis,

Unsatisfactory

By Cee

from Mississauga

I ordered this product with the hope that it would be a wonderful solution to my back problems. Unfortunately, I found that it did not meet my expectations nor was it as promising as the promoter stated. It was simply a stiffer version of a heating pad, one that was difficult to sit up against in a chair. One needed to always lie on it. Also, I was expecting something more technologically refined. The control instrument alone was very simply designed, using a concept one finds in less expensive devices.

Poor craftsmanship

By Dana

from thunder bay

I purchased the Platinum system. Unfortunately I when it arrived I didn't try it immediately. Yesterday I tried it and discovered (after my 30 days return period was over) that the panels in the unit were put in backwards and the heat did not penetrate the 2 inches in the unit. After a second try the panels got really hot (on low) and I had to stop trying to use it. I called the shopping channel and the best they could do was give me the toll free number for the Termotex Company. What a disappointment! I will call them to see if I can return it. Also when I got the unit from the shopping channel there were no instructions, warranty information or contact number for the company even though they purport to be manufactured well. What a joke!
