Thermaphore Arthritis Heating Pad

Featured on this page is the Thermophore Arthritis Heating Pad. The details about how you can buy one are as follows.

The use of heat to get deeply into the painful muscles and joints is a vital part of the process of keeping the body feeling good, particularly for those suffering debilitating arthritis or similar conditions. The Thermophore Arthritis Heating Pad is exactly the kind of product that should be considered to use as treatment.

Unlike some of the heating pads that are available in department stores or for prices that are significantly cheaper, the Thermophore gives you a number of features that will ensure you get the best heat treatment possible.

The large heating pad measuring 14” x 27” is weighted down with a series of flat metal weights to ensure the heating pad is molded to the body along the entire surface area that is covered. These heating pads have been designed to be particularly useful for someone with back pain. The size of the pad means it will provide relief over a large area of the body.

This heating pad has a few key features that are worth examining. It may be used in a cycle of twenty minute bursts where the heating pad is applied for twenty minutes before being removed for twenty minutes. This process may be repeated as required. The heating pad comes with an auto-timer that is very simple to turn on and set. This is a moist heat pad and the moist heat that is produced is intense and the moist heat is ideal for getting deeply into the trouble spots where it is required.

Using these types of heating pads are fine for the first few months but, with continuous use you will begin to notice that the fabric starts to become discolored. This is inevitable as the heating pad continually comes in contact with your skin and the oils and sweat from your back starts to soak into the fabric. This particular heating pad is quite easy to clean and does not require any special equipment or cleaning aids.

What might strike you when you begin looking at the Thermophore Arthritis Heating Pad is that it could be considered costly at over $50.00. This shouldn’t serve as a reason to shy away from the product because the components that are used are sturdy and reliable and the features of the unit will mean that it is still likely to be working 10 years down the road. It is definitely worthwhile considering a Thermophore Arthritis Heating Pad for sale.

As well as the standard sized heating pad which is 14” x 27”, the Thermophore Heating Pad is also available in a small size of 4” x 17” and a medium size of 14” x 14”.

This particular infrared heating pad was also discussed as one of the five top ranked heating pads sold on Amazon. To find out a little bit more about this and the others that were ranked take a look at the post Infrared Heat Pads are the Best Choice for Pain Relief.

Preparing For Summer’s Sizzle

As the months turn towards the heat of summer, I usually start planning my suntanning regiment. You do not want to start too early or you will have leathery skin before the summer's end. But you do not want to start late, either, lest you provide the moon shine on your first outing to the beach or pool.

In recent years I have discovered the healthy and versatile joys of airbrush tanning systems. These great suntanning systems enable me to build a natural, even tan regardless of the weather and no matter what my schedule.

I know you might immediately react with skepticism, as such artificial tans looked, well, obviously artificial in the past. But the ingredients and the equipment have really evolved over the last decade. As long as you are not foolish and impatient with it, you can give yourself a nice rich bronze without damaging your skin too early in the season.

So what does an airbrush tanning solution entail?

Airbrush tanning is all about getting that suntanned look without having to risk the ultra-violet rays from the sun. There are methods for sunless tanning that can be achieved at home using tanning lotions and there are ways to accelerate the effects of the sun on the skin with tan accelerators, but if you want to get your sunless tan with the help of professionals, you will go to the salon for an airbrush tan.

Getting an airbrush tan is a safe and simple procedure and it results in a smooth and even tan that lasts for a few weeks. The sunless tanning product uses a tanning chemical called dihydroxyacetone (DHA) which is FDA approved and does not penetrate the past the outer layer of skin.

The only risk involved with using a fake tan is that it does not protect the skin from UV rays when you go out into the sun later. The natural inclination might be to believe that because you have had an airbrush tan that your skin will better equipped to withstand the sun but this is not the case and your skin can be damaged as a result if you are not careful. It is essential that you wear a sunscreen whenever you go out in the sun, even after going through an airbrush tanning procedure.

Enhance Your Home With a Wrought Iron Fence

People are always looking for ways to enhance their homes. From the inside to the outside, there are always things to change and things to improve. Of course, one cannot overlook the first thing that people see when they look at your house. Your fence is the first thing they see and if you have one that’s already in ruins then you might want to change it.

If you are looking for something decorative and elegant, then you should consider getting a wrought iron fence. Such kinds of fences would definitely help enhance and improve the look of your fence by giving it a bit more charm. It is also a great alternative to the wooden fences that typically surround gardens. Adding this kind of fence to your home or yard would add character to the place as well as provide protection from trespassers. They come in a variety of styles, height as well as colors so there’s always something to suit every person’s tastes.

When compared to typical wooden fences, a wrought iron fence is much more decorative. From filigree to little flowers sprouting, the designs are endless. Of course the prices for these fences vary accordingly. The more complex the design, the more expensive they are. As for durability, they are significantly longer lasting when compared to your typical wooden fence and they can withstand years of use without showing any signs of wear and tear.

Lastly, maintaining the look of your wrought iron fence doesn’t involve hard work at all. To keep your fence looking like new, you should give it a good wash every now and then with warm water with soap. Follow that with some wax as well as oil on the fences joints to keep them well lubricated and to avoid rusting.

A Small Greenhouse To Stretch The Budget

Are you looking for a way to stretch your food budget now that we are in recession and money is tight?  That's a dumb question.  Of course you are everyone is.  Well here's a great idea that is being brought back from the past.

It used to be that anyone with access to even a small plot of land had a garden to help stretch the amount of money they spent on food.  There is no reason we can't get back into the mind set of growing some of our own healthy veggies and herbs.  If you haven't had home grown tomatoes you don't know what you are missing.

A great way to grow some plants is in a small greenhouse.  This allows you to plant much earlier in the spring and harvest till late in the fall.  If you have access to any piece of ground at all plant some seeds and watch the magic happen. There are a number of different ways in which the small greenhouse is going to prove to be a very handy addition to the gardening arsenal.

If ever a plant is doing poorly and needs a controlled environment, having the option of potting it up and moving into the greenhouse is a great opportunity to give it some intensive treatment. being able to control the environment is vitally important. A plant that is doing poorly will appreciate the added food that is introduced to it as well as the temperature and humidity control that the greenhouse affords.

Humidity is controlled within the greenhouse with a simple misting system and operating this system regularly will ensure the plants never have a chance to dry out. There is no doubt that you entire garden could benefit simply by keeping a well maintained greenhouse on the property.

Bathroom Lighting Ideas

I think when we are having work done on our homes, we expect quite a lot from the main contractor we employ, and some over deliver, and others get nowhere near the mark. Our latest project involved the bathroom and I have to say that out contractor Geoff was a real star.Geoff is one of those old fashioned guys who likes to do a job properly the first time, and if you are paying out lots of money on a big project like we were, you want someone like Geoff. What makes him stand out even more though is eye for good design, and on this job he gave us some amazing bathroom lighting ideas that neither of us would ever have thought of. When the project was finished, it was the small details that combined to make the room look perfect.

Here are a few of the more basic lighting ideas that may be used to create a bathroom environment that is both pleasant as well as modern.

Start over the vanity mirror where there should be ample lighting available to perform your daily tasks of makeup application or shaving. There are many vanity light options available that will make a very attractive feature over the top of the mirror and will also provide the perfect type of lighting. Modern vanity lighting may consist of two lights, three lights or four lights in a strip along the top of the mirror. These lights are a form of the old Hollywood lights that one might expect to see in a theatre dressing room.

A more modern type of lighting that is starting to become very common is the combination fan/heater/ light. There are a number of different brands available that provide this option and it is the ideal way to provide strong overhead lighting for the entire bathroom while also adding heat to the room. The exhaust fan built into the setting means that the room can be quickly cleared of steam without having to go through the process of installing a separate exhaust assembly.

Another option that also provides a multi-functional light for the bathroom is a bathroom light with a nightlight option. This is a great feature for young families with children who want to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. Kids that are afraid of the dark will be comforted by the soft light that is coming from the bathroom to guide them. This feature might also be very useful for guest houses where there are a lot of people who are unfamiliar with the layout of the interior of the house. Finding the way to the bathroom might be very difficult in the dark without the nightlight feature.

Take a close look at the various bathroom lighting options. Whether you wish to create a more traditional or old-style bathroom or a modern contemporary one, the lighting fixtures that you use are going to play a big part in providing the styling in the room.
