Bruises are a natural consequence of having a need near the skin. They start dark black and blue. This is the clotted blood. As the bruise heals it will turn an amazing array of colors including green and yellow.

Hot and Cold

This therapy uses the bodies own reaction to temperature change to aid the bruise to be reabsorbed into the body.
When your body becomes hot it will increase blood flow to cool that area. When cold is applied your body tries to limit the blood flow to that area. After a few minutes the blood flow will return the blood flow to normal.

It is this natural reaction of dilation and constriction that helps to break down bruses.

It is important to only use temperatures that are comfortable to you. Boiling and scalding water will cause tissue damage. Freezing can also cause tissue damage.

Only use temperatures that are comfortable to tolerate. Otherwise you may cause tissue damage.
