Did you know? Heat therapy is prescribed by many doctors and physiotherapists. It dilates the blood vessels of the muscles to increase the flow of oxygen, which repairs the damaged tissue. Heat also stimulates the sensory receptors in the skin, which means that applying heat can decrease pain signals to the brain and offer comfort :) Heat allows the soft tissues to stretch, which helps decrease stiffness of joints.
