1. Moist Heat Therapy
The body absorbs moist warm temperature faster than the dry temperature, and therefore, penetrates deeper into the skin, promoting faster pain relief. Moist heat is shown to penetrate almost 3o times better than dry heat, which means heat penetrates deeper into sore and painful areas that dry heat cannot reach.

On the other hand, all electric pads and saunas are used for dry heat, which draws out moisture from the skin and causes irritation.
2. Release Negative Ions
Negative ions – Himalayan salt releases negative ions when heated and naturally found near the forest, beaches, and waterfalls. These negative ions reach the bloodstream and produce a biochemical reaction to relieve stress, alleviate depression, boost energy and increase defense against infection. The negatively loaded anions improve health and mood. Therefore, inhaling these particles may reduce mucus and inflammation in lungs, improve respiratory conditions including, bronchitis, asthma, and sinus congestion. Further benefits of a heating pad include purifying the air and avoid respiratory illnesses and other health problems.
Positive ions – All electronics surrounding us including the electric hot pads release positive atoms. Any environment with excess positively charged anions is demonstrated to have an adverse effect on the body. These anions are small carbon dioxide molecules which enter your bloodstream from the air you breathe and negatively affect your immune system.
