"Thermaflex is a good heating liniment choice." - Horse Journal, October 2004
Thermaflex Liniment Gel is easy so easy to use. Simply apply to over-exerted muscles, swollen limbs, or arthritic joints. It can also be used on injuries that require prolonged heat treatment, such as bruises, sprains, splints, bucked shins, and bowed tendons. There is no need to mess with cumbersome leg wraps because the gel stays in place. Because Theremaflex doesn't contain acetone, it has a slower evaporation rate than many other liniments, so it works longer and needs to be applied less often. It is also safe to use on sensitive skin. It is formulated with natural plant extracts that work to increase circulation in the area where it is applied. The gel contains 4% menthol that creates a cool rush of pain relief that is followed by deeply penetrating heat that helps to reduce swelling.
Menthol is an organic compound that is derived from peppermint and other mint oils. It reduces irritation and has local anesthetic properties. The gel also contains MSM, a powerful anti-inflammatory that helps to improve blood flow to damaged areas of the body, allowing the body to repair damaged cells. It also softens both internal and external scars, allow easier passage of carbon dioxide and oxygen, and has been shown to cause damaged tissue to shrink in size and sometimes disappear completely. MSM also affects cells so that water can flow freely through the cell wall, carrying toxins out and allowing more nutrition in, helping the cells to heal and also combating pain.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
For temporary relief of muscular soreness, stiffness or swelling, caused by exposure, overwork or exertion. Apply liniment sufficiently to cover the affected area and gently massage liniment into the application area. Do not wrap if applied vigorously. The natural extracts and oils in this product do not require wrapping and will increase the circulation to the application area.
Keep out of reach of children. For external use only. Do not wrap tightly or apply heat to area. Do not swallow. Do not apply to irritated skin; if excessive irritation develops, discontinue use. Individuals with sensitive skin may experience a tingling sensation or redness after application and may prefer to wear gloves. This product is a counter-irritant and as such increases local circulation to aid in the relief of inflammation in underlying or adjacent tissues. Discontinue use if irritation persists and consult a veterinarian. Wash hands, thoroughly, after use. Avoid contact with eyes or mucus membranes. Do not smoke or eat while applying. Keep away from fire, sparks and heated surfaces.
