Visits to MSF and MSAA

Bill and Pete at an MSAA Fundraiser in Yellowstone. 

My thanks to the fine folks at the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. I recently had the opportunity to visit both organizations, have lunch together and give a very informal “in-service” on MS and body cooling. I always learn from these visits and come away with new product ideas. Most of all I am always impressed with the dedication, skill, service and heart that the people who work at non-profits provide.

Thank you to all who have dedicated themselves to such good work.

Warm Regards,

Colds, Flu and Sinusitis - oh my!

We hope you all have managed to stay well during this cold and flu season! Many of us at Polar have been stricken with a nasty cold this month. For some of us, that has resulted in ear infections or sinus infections, with tremendous pressure and headaches. Fortunately, we are all well stocked in moist heat wraps, which can sometimes help ease the pain temporarily.

Thera-Temp® Moist Heat Sinus Wrap

Some doctors recommend using moist heat therapy for drug-free pain relief to help relieve pressure in nasal passages and sinus cavities. It also relaxes the facial muscles, alleviating the pain associated with stress, tension headaches and TMJ.

Here's how some of our colleagues have put our Thera-Temp® Microwaveable Moist Heat Wraps to good use these past few weeks... so they can feel better and get back to work! :)

"I happened to have my favorite moist heat wrap handy: the Thera-Temp® Moist Heat Cervical Wrap. Its long, narrow shape wrapped around my forehead and helped ease my sinus headache. I also used it around my neck (its intended use, which always feels great!), around my jaw and in front of my ear (I had an ear infection - ouch!), which really helped me relax enough to rest." 
- Erin, Marketing Manager

"I never get headaches. But when I got a sharp headache above my eyebrow the other day, I knew it was my sinuses. I went back to our shop and got a Thera-Temp® Moist Heat Sinus Wrap. The strap held it securely on my head and I wore it above my eyes to I could see. The moist heat therapy really helped relieve my sinus pressure so I could make it through the workday." 
- Maureen, Office Manager

"It felt like a bomb exploded in my head... so much pressure! I used a small, universal Thera-Temp® Target Wrap right on my forehead. The moist heat was a great addition to my medication and of course... plenty of sleep."
- Jacob, VP

It's great to have Thera-Temp® Microwaveable Moist Heat Wraps on hand... you never know when you might need it! Take care and be well, everyone. Call us if you need to place an order at 1-800-763-8423.

PS - an ear infection didn't stop this little guy from having a very happy first birthday. Happy Birthday, Ben! Here he is at his birthday party with his Pop Pop:
