Are you struggling with aching or stiff muscles? Then heat therapy is a great way to relax, release tension and help manage the pain that can accompany a sore back, stiff neck, or problems in other areas. Heat pads come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, with some specifically designed to fit around your shoulders or feet and other common problem areas. A low tech, but still affective, solution is a hot water bottle. These can be quickly filled and will provide warming to your aches and pains. A TENS machine can offer a similar result in terms of pain-reduction, by passing a small and harmless electrical current through your muscles.
If the dark winter months get you down you can enjoy a mood boost by using daylight lamps. These lamps simulate sunlight and give you the corresponding health benefits. These include lifting your mood, stimulating the production of positive chemicals and hormones and boosting your energy.
You’ll find other equipment to manage your health and wellness. You can monitor your weight and body fat percentage with a BMI scale, or keep tabs on your blood pressure with a blood pressure monitor. And make sure you have a digital thermometer to keep an eye on temperatures during a flu or virus.
