  • The Sunbeam Health at Home Flexible Heating Pad was totally an impulse buy for me, because I had purchased a normal heating pad not two weeks before, but I found it was too small to cover the area on my back that I needed it to cover comfortably
  • I like my heating pads to get as hot as humanly possible, right on the border of discomfort (yes, I'm strange like that), as I feel that's the only time my muscles really losen up, and this pad can get that hot, so test out the settings one at a time until you find the one that best suits your needs at the time

      I have quite a few heating pads in my collection. They all still work and there’s really no reason I need to buy more, but I always find a new one that’s bigger, better and badder than the last one, and since I constantly have need for a heating pad, I just have to buy it. The Sunbeam Health at Home Flexible Heating Pad was totally an impulse buy for me, because I had purchased a normal heating pad not two weeks before, but I found it was too small to cover the area on my back that I needed it to cover comfortably. I had hurt myself at work with repetative movements that lead to an over-extended shoulder and pinched nerve. There is usually not a section of my back that doesn’t hurt on a pretty regular basis, which means something is ALWAYS in pain. Of course, I’ve been to my doctor many times and was told the only real solution is to quit my job and get

      physical therapy, but neither option is financially feasible now or any time in the foreseeable future. I’ve taken all kinds of pain relievers and tried all kinds of patches and pain creams and heating pads and packs over the last two years that it’s really bordering on the ridiculous, but I have to say that the Sunbeam Health at Home Flexible Heating Pad is one product I’ve never regretted purchasing.

      The first thing I liked about it was that it was supposed to mold to the area of the body you need it to cover. It’s oddly shaped, almost like a car seat cover, one of those beaded ones people put on their car seats to massage thier backs while they drive, only the heating pad is much smaller and has this kind of quilted quality to it that makes it nice and cushiony. It has fastening straps so that if I need it over my shoulder, I can fasten it under one arm and around the opposite shoulder ...


      • and if I need it on my lower back, I can fasten it around my waist. And the shape really allows for it to cover a large portion of your back all at once. You can even wrap it around a thigh or calf if you need to, though I havent had a reason to use it like that just yet (and hopefully wont have a reason to use it). The straps aren’t very comfortable though, and are thin, so they tend to dig into you, but if they are too lose, then the heating pad doesn’t stay flush against you enough to be as effective as it could be.

        It does have eight heat settings which is nice too. I like my heating pads to get as hot as humanly possible, right on the border of discomfort (yes, I’m strange like that), as I feel that’s the only time my muscles really losen up, and this pad can get that hot, so test out the settings one at

        a time until you find the one that best suits your needs at the time. I’ve used this pad many times, and after I wrapped a small hand towel around the straps where it was uncomfortable, it’s been a totally perfect heating pad. If they somehow made a good ice-pack version of this, I’d love it, because I can’t fathom there being a better heating pad than this one. Yes, it’s expensive at about $40 (at least, that’s the cheapest I’ve been able to find it anywhere), but if you have chronic pain and soreness like I do, it will literally be a lifesaver for you and worth ever last dime and then some. I’ve even purchased one to give as a gift, and she loved it as much as I do! My kids have even used it after their karate practice when they are particularly sore, and I’ve seen on of my kids curling up with it and falling asleep because it’s so comfortable. Loved this product every day of its use.
