Natural, medication-free healing – The Thermotex Platinum Infrared Heating Pad
The Thermotex Platinum Infrared Heating Pad is an incredibly versatile natural pain remedy that works.
It’s deep, penetrating heat temporarily but effectively relieves you of pain from injury or chronic ailments.
To get an idea of what it feels like, imagine yourself lying in a bathtub filled with hot, steaming water. The soothing warmth seeps into your tired and aching bones. The gentle sound of the water lapping against the side of the tub calms your weary mind. Your body fully unwinds as the stress of the day finally melts away.
We think so. And this same heavenly result of relaxation and comfort can be yours by using the Thermotex Platinum Infrared Heating Pad.
It’s deep, penetrating heat temporarily but effectively relieves you of pain from injury or chronic ailments…and does so naturally.
Designed with three individual three inch by eight inch infrared elements, the Thermotex Platinum offers flexibility; you can fit the pad on to or over the different areas of your body that are in need of relief.
Adjustable straps hold the pads in place so that you can be confident that the heat will stay right where you want it, and need it, to bring respite from the pain. The TTS Platinum pad is our most popular pad due to its ability to treat any part of the body. This is the pad that most clinics offer to their patients for purchase.
And unlike a bath (as wonderfully healing as that is), the Thermotex Platinum Heating Pad is portable; you can use it at home, in the office, and on vacation. Relief does not need to be stationary!
Here are some, but not all, of the conditions the Thermotex Platinum can treat:
- Back pain
- Golfer’s / Tennis elbow
- Rotator cuff tendonitis
- Sprains & Strains
- Lactic acid build up
Because of its pain-relieving success, we keep this popular therapy system in stock in our Blaine warehouse. We mail it to United States addresses by Free Shipping with USPS Priority Mail (single quantity) so you can normally expect delivery (and ultimate comfort) within 3 days…at the lowest price available.
How does the Thermotex Platinum Far Infrared Heating Pad work?
Through the absorption of infrared thermal energy, your body’s tissues are safely and gently heated increasing blood flow within the treated area. Your body’s natural response to this increased temperature is to try to maintain a condition of homeostasis—a balanced environment or state of equilibrium throughout the body. To do this, your body responds with a rapid increase in blood flow to the area.
Reliance on expensive and possibly harmful pain medications is unnecessary. Your body can sigh with joy as it experiences natural pain relief from the simple healing powers of heat.
Thermotex infrared operates at temperatures of between 40°C – 45°C, versus heating pads that are often in excess of 55°C. The Thermotex Platinum Heating Pad will not burn or dehydrate your skin. Read more about how infrared therapy works.
Thermotex products are not regular heating pads. These are registered medical devices that reach temperatures of 43 – 48c (108 – 116F) after approximately 10 minutes. This is the ideal temperature to achieve depth of penetration to provide therapeutic benefits. Studies prove at this temperature the far infrared wavelengths will penetrate 6 cm (2.36″) after 20 minutes, heating the tissues in the area being treated.
Your body feels the heat and as a natural response, called homeostasis, will send in fresh blood to the area to cool it down. The increased blood flow brings in oxygen, nutrients, and proteins as well as flushing away lactic acid and reducing pain from inflammation.
Use Infrared Heat With Electrical Muscle Stimulation
The Thermotex Platinum is also very effective at increasing the therapeutic effects of the Rhythm Touch 2-Way. Just place the pad over the electrodes while you are using the muscle stimulator to further enhance the effects of increased circulation and deep therapy.

For how long may I apply the pad?
- For New (late 2017 and later) Thermotex Units
The newest THERMOTEX™ Infrared Therapy System uses a simple on or off switch. If the surface feels too warm put a cotton towel between the body and the THERMOTEX™. The infrared heat penetrations will still be effective.
Recommended treatment time is a minimum of 30 – 45 minutes per session. When your THERMOTEX™ is at room temperature, it will take approximately 10 minutes before you will feel the heat, and for your pad to provide infrared therapy.
- For Original Thermotex Units
We recommend a treatment session be for 10-15 minutes on the High setting (when starting at room temperature) and then 30 additional minutes on low for a total time of 45 minutes. If the pad is plugged in and pre-warmed already, we recommend 45 minutes on the Low setting only.
- See graphical thermographs showing the effectiveness of Thermotex Infrared Heating Pads
Thermography is used to measure the radiation of heat. In the pictures shown in the above link you will see that the initial state of the injured area in each case is showing colder than the surrounding tissue. This is because of the lack of blood flow in that injured area. As the injury is treated and the pain relieved by increasing blood flow, the temperature of the injured area returns to normal.
