effect of heat therapy

Heat therapy works on several levels in the body.

On the one hand, the heat relaxes the muscles . With the help of heat applications, for example, the stretchability or elasticity of connective tissue structures can be increased and any tissue adhesions can be loosened . On the other hand, the heat therapy supports the blood circulation in the tissue .

Heat dilates blood vessels and increases blood flow and metabolism . As a result, even tissue with a reduced blood supply or injured tissue is supplied with messenger substances, oxygen and nutrients . This effectively supports the recovery and restoration of damaged tissue . The heat effect also strengthens the body's own immune system . In addition, heat therapy helps reduce pain perception by stimulating heat receptors.
