RE: Thermal Palms - From a few practitioners on Facebook:
* ...check out Thermal Palms. They are a great alternative to hot stones. They glide easily over the skin and can also be used over clothes. You can make them in advance of your appointment and carry them in an insulated bag so they stay hot. They are lightweight and retain their heat well.
* Yes. I have used them and I love them as long as they never touch the skin. I have thought they would be absolutely perfect for what you are talking about. I like them quite a bit but they are FAR to hot to even consider touching a client's skin with. People love how they feel through clothing. They glide quite nicely and heat up very quickly.
* I love my thermal palms. All you need is a microwave.
Once you make a Thermal Palm, how many times can you reheat it before you need to empty it and wash the various pieces?
Can they be used on different clients by sanitizing the outside and simply reheating??
Can they be reheated in a hot water bath?
In a towel Cabi?
Or only in the microwave?

For those using Thermal Palms, what is the material comparable to? Curious because bolster fabrics (vinyl?) shouldn't really come in contact with the client's skin. So am wondering what the Thermal Palms wraps are made from... Thanks for any reply.
