Sunbeam® Targeted Heat Therapy

This post is sponsored by Sunbeam®.  I was compensated & given complimentary product for my review of the new Sunbeam® Targeted Heat Relief products.  As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

As a runner, especially one who hasn’t been training properly lately, oops! I am always dealing with one ache and/or pain after the other.  Most recently my back, the ever present hamstring tendonitis & ankle issues have been my current issues.

Which is why I was really excited to get to try out these new products from Sunbeam®.  I’m always intrigued by new products and I prefer heat to cold for recovery.

Sunbeam® is a leader in Targeted Heat Therapy for Pain Relief and their new product line doesn’t disappoint.

From the Sunbeam® website: Heat is clinically proven to relieve pain associated with muscle tension and stress; it increases blood flow to the source of the pain, which accelerates tissue healing.  Cold on the other hand reduces inflammation directly after an injury.

The new products that I received included Sunbeam® Heated Back Wrap Sunbeam® GoHeat™ Portable Heated Patches Sunbeam® FlexTemp™ Hot & Cold Joint Wrap Sunbeam® FlexFit™ Heated Wrap Sunbeam® Wrapping Heating Pad with XpressHeat®

Sunbeam® Heated Back Wrap, it has a contoured design to match the shape of your back.  It also includes an extra waist strap to extend the width of the strap  (it was a little snug so that piece will come in handy).  This is awesome to wear while I’m working.

The Sunbeam® GoHeat™ Portable Heated Patches were my favorite product of the group.  The patches are small enough that you can put them pretty much anywhere.  I like to use them on my hamstring, which is my problem spot.  Best of all, this is the only product of the group that is fully portable.  It comes with a control unit that you can clip onto your clothing.  There are 3 settings, low, medium & a 20 minute high heat cycle.

Next up was Sean’s favorite product.  The FlexTemp Hot + Cold Joint Wrap.   He was using this on his knee all weekend long.  It’s snug fitting & you can use it either with the cold freezable gel pack or plug it in for heat.  If you use it with the gel pack, you can remove the cord connector so you can move around if needed.

Sean said that it was really comfortable and he didn’t even realize that he was wearing it.  I used it with the ice after a tough spin class and it was super easy to get that icing down.

Another product I really liked was the Sunbeam® FlexFit™ Heated Wrap.  This piece was super cool because you can use it pretty much anywhere.  I especially liked using it on my ankle after my marathon to help with the minor inflammation I had from all the climbing out there in the mountains.

I also tried it out on my arm after a lot of heavy arm session and it fit great around my forearm/elbow.

The last piece I got was the Sunbeam® Wrapping Heating Pad with XpressHeat®.  This one you can use on either your arm or leg.  I was using this after Revel when my shins and calves were really sore from the downhill.  And I could use it while stretching too.

All of the products (except the portable patches) are made of a really soft material & are able to thrown in the washer, just disconnect the pad from the cord.

It’s nice because you can just plug them in and wear any or all of these products while just sitting and watching TV.  You can also create a moist heat option by spraying the pad with water which is supposed to provide deep penetrating pain relief.

These products are available at Sunbeam partners like Amazon, Walmart, Target, Walgreens & a bunch of others.

Which of these heat therapy products would you want to try?
