How many of you have that special frostbitten bag of peas in your freezer – the one no one eats, but everyone runs to when they need a cold compress? Me? I’m waving my hand wildly. How many of you out there thought there had to be a better way, but struggled to find a practical solution for a cold compress that conforms to your curves but doesn’t leak, smell, or expire? Yep, still waving my hand wildly. Finding a heat pack was similarly difficult and my best solution was a bulky electrical heating pad that was stiff, uncomfortable, and, well, electrical.
If you’ve noticed, I’m using the past-tense to talk about our hot and cold packs and that’s because we have found a much, much better solution for both. The solution is TheraPearl, a company that makes a whole line of hot and cold compresses for whatever ails you. Instead of one pack to heat and one to cool, TheraPearl Cold and Hot Therapy Packs are both, all wrapped up in one ingenious product that has changed the way we treat minor discomforts at our house.
We got to try out some really cool TheraPearl products this past spring that included the Nursing Buddies set and two colorful children’s pals and we all simply love them. Because we enjoy using them so much, we have thrown out our bags of frozen peas and donated our heating pad and now rely solely on the TheraPearl for small injuries, strains, or muscle aches.
So, what is TheraPearl? Formed by a doctor as a practical alternative for healing, their hot and cold therapy packs are like nothing I have ever seen before. Instead of gel, TheraPearl packs are filled with squishy gel “bubbles” that are smooth and soft to conform to curves, which makes them a great option instead of leaky ice packs, messy frozen peas, or electrical pads.
My daughter loves the kids TheraPearl packs that have adorable pig and frog designs and they have been a lifesaver as the active spring and summer activities have resumed. They are the perfect size for her little hands and her little injuries and perfect to keep in either the fridge or freezer to pull out quickly when needed. When she falls down and gets hurt, nothing consoles her quite like her “Bubble Pig”, as she has affectionately named it.
Not only are the TheraPearl packs sized perfectly for numerous functions, they are all reusable, easy to freeze or heat, and are doctor-recommended. This is partly due to the fact the packs can do both hot and cold as well as disseminate their cold or warm properties in 20 minutes, the recommended time for heat or ice. They are also incredibly easy to use, either hot or cold, by popping a pack into the freezer or fridge or heating for a few minutes in the microwave.
TheraPearl has a variety of different shaped packs available that are designed for different uses, but the great thing is that they can be used anywhere interchangeably. While the Nursing Buddies were incredibly nice to have during an episode of painful engorgement, they also work nicely for knee injuries, head compresses, and just about any small or medium area you can imagine. Next on our list is the large sports pack so we can have a large and a small option available… you know, just in case.
You’d expect with a product as cool as this that they would cost a fortune, but the prices are not only reasonable, they are a true bargain! The Nursing Buddies set can be bought for $14.99 and the Kid’s Pals are $5.99!
