TheraPearl was formed by a leading doctor and entrepreneur as a practical alternative for healing. The revolutionary ice packs are a great option instead of using leaky ice packs, messy frozen peas, or dripping hot gauze pads and towels. The packs conform to the skin providing consistent therapy for the affected areas. The TheraPearl line is reusable and doctor-recommended. In addition, the packs disseminate their healing cold or warm properties in 20 minutes, the recommended time for heat or ice. When the pack approaches room temperature, it is time to take a brief break before applying another compress.
