I have used Thermophore Moist Heating Pads for over 10 years. Nothing can compare. I will be purchasing my third heating pad today. I absolutely love the instant heat and pain relief I receive. Considering I use my heating pad throughout the year it is the best deal by far for instant relief. Each Thermophore heating pad I have owned averaged 4-5 years of use.

Great Product

Definitely much better than any other heating pad I have used as nothing is able to match this amount of heat. I'm not fond of the manual switch and I use a small strap to keep the switch down.

Best pad I've ever used.

This pad is over 50 dollars. If your like me and coughed at the price tag because your use to buying the cheap sunbeam/walmart type heating pads, let me tell you, I'm now a believer. To the reviewer that said this pad doesn't get hot enough, either something is wrong with your pad or you have some really thick skin. This pad gets hot, and its a deep moist hot, something those cheap pads can't match. This feels more like you've soaked your muscles in a hot tub of water but better! The pad is also heavy which is awesome because it really lays against your body. I lay this on the back of my sofa when my back is bothering me and I lay back against it. If I had a thin shirt on I'd have to agree with the reviewer who says it gets to hot! However if I wear say a nice cotton t-shirt of reasonable quality, I can make it through the treatment. It depends on my level of pain, the worse my back hurts the more heat I can take. By the time my heat treatment is over, my back muscles are literally throbbing. It feels really amazing. I also lay this over over my shoulders and the back of my neck when I get really tense and this loosens me up nicely. The pad is really heavy duty construction. Like I said above this isn't a cheap pad and you can tell that just holding it in your hand. This pad is the automatic pad. You basically have a on and off button and then there is 4 or 5 green lights that light up on the on/off control. The hotter the pad gets the more lights come on. Once the pad reaches its peak heating temp, it grandualy cools back down and this is also reflected with the light display. I myself didn't want to worry with a manual switch and this worked out just right for me. If you suffer from back pain, muscle tension or anything else that feels better when heat is applied, then get this. Its pricey but it is worth every cent!

This is not your average heating pad

This is our second Thermophore 14 x 27, first one lasted about ten years or so, and we liked it enough to replace right away. With temperatures up around 165 degrees, this will get in deep to your muscles and joints. A few rounds of 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off will work wonders. One of the best features is that this pad is weighted all over with many flat metal weights that make it conform to your body for great contact and heat transfer. Use with caution and read the instruction manual for warnings. See the Thermophore web site for more details. Seems a bit expensive compared to standard heating pads, but it's in a class by itself and worth the investment. Note, Don't be confused by the "Automatic" wording, it has a hand operated normally OFF switch. The Automatic refers to the moist heat since you don't have to wet it at all. They now make the same unit with an automatic timer shut off switch if you might like that better than the manual switch that this one has. This one you have to hold the switch down to keep it hot, that way if you doze off it shuts it off. The other is called "Automatic" with "Automatic switch"
