Thermotherapeutics

HEAT
HAS been used to appease aches and pains ever since man first experienced what the heat of the sun could do for him. Sigerist called the use of heat in therapy instinctual. Of the many therapeutic agents used in ancient times, few have been used as continuously through the past into the present, and except for exercise, none has continued to be used more extensively and in more different forms than heat. Heat is generally available, relatively inexpensive and safe, and, when effective, gives almost immediate and obvious relief. In cool climates, heat has always been a comfort, and even in warm climates the people have exposed themselves and their children to the sun.

This course surveys the history of heat therapy, the many forms - radiant, convective, conductive, electric, etc. providing valuable insight into any practice and use of heat.
