Menstrual cramps and bloating can be as debilitating and disruptive as an injury. Some women prefer to treat their pain and other symptoms with something warm, while others prefer something cold. Both our BFST® Wraps and our ColdCure® Wraps are ideal for treating the following symptoms many women experience during menstruation:
Whether you decide to use our BFST® Wraps or our ColdCure® Wraps (or both) to treat your menstrual-related symptoms is entirely up to you. It's all about personal preference.
Our BFST® Wraps provide warmth and promote circulation in living and healthy tissue. This helps relieve pain and cramping in your abdomen, lower back, hips, sides and legs. The BFST® Wrap will not increase the flow of your period.
Our ColdCure® Wraps use both cold and compression to relieve the aches and pains in your back, hips, abdomen, sides and legs. ColdCure® is especially effective for treating the headaches that can come with menstruation.
We have BFST® and ColdCure® Wraps to treat all areas of the body. The Wraps are custom designed to conform to the shape of the area you're treating. This means complete coverage and maximum relief. Our Wraps have long, wide Velcro® straps, making them easily adjustable to fit your unique body shape.
If you experience any of the following symptoms during menstruation, please see your doctor:

When you use a BFST® or ColdCure® Wrap, you can be sure you are using a product that is completely safe in every way. Our products meet the highest standards in the industry when it comes to safety, efficacy, quality and biocompatibility. These are FDA approved medical devices. Our materials had to pass biocompatibility testing in order to be sold as FDA approved devices. Safety is designed into every element of this device. It has to be safe, so even if one part of it breaks, it cannot bring you harm.
If you prefer warmth, use a BFST® Back Wrap to soothe the aches and pains in your lower abdomen, back, hips and sides. The BFST® Back Wrap works to improve your circulation, relieving the cramping that leads to menstrual-related aches and pains. Do 3-4 treatments per day for best results.
If you prefer cold therapy and you're experiencing aches and pains in your lower abdomen, back, hips, or sides, the ColdCure® Back Wrap is what you need. They come with 3 gel packs, allowing you to keep your therapy going for extended durations. If you are charging the gel packs in the fridge, you don't need to take a break between treatments. This means superior relief of your symptoms.
The Back Wraps are extremely versatile and easily adjustable, making them the ideal wraps to use on a variety of different areas. They have a treatment area of 7"x10" for complete and targeted coverage of the aching, painful areas.
Our Back Wraps are guaranteed to fit anyone with a waist measuring between 22" and 54". For people whose waist measures below 22", we recommend using our Leg Wraps instead. For people whose waist measures above 54", we have extensions that can be attached to your Wrap to help you achieve the perfect fit.
If you prefer warmth and are looking for mega coverage of your abdomen, back, hips, or sides, the BFST® Large Body Wrap provides exactly that. It provides unparalleled coverage and soothing warmth for all of your aches and pains.
If you require mega cold coverage for your abdomen, back, hips, or sides, the ColdCure® Large Body Wrap is the perfect treatment device. It comes with 2 huge gel packs that offer amazing coverage and cooling power.
With a treatment area that's greater than 15"x15", you can treat your entire abdomen or back, or both of your hips at once! These Wraps are ideal to wear around the home and can be laid on or rested against while sitting on a couch or chair. The Large Body Wraps are like the Back Wraps, but much larger. They are universal Wraps that can be used to treat aches and pains in many different areas.
The Large Body Wraps are designed to fit anyone for non-back use, and for backs are guaranteed to fit comfortably on anyone with a waist measuring between 22" and 44". For people whose waist measures above 44", we have extensions that can be attached to your Wrap to achieve a perfect fit, (we recommend the purchase of 2 Accessory Straps for use with the Large Body Wrap).
The Accessory Strap is designed to attach to your wrap to provide a more customized fit. It provides 11+ inches of extension, so you can use as much or as little as you need. The strap allows you to increase the size of your Wrap to achieve the best possible fit for your unique body shape.
To apply, attach one end of the Accessory Strap to one of the Back/Hip or Body Wrap straps and pull it around your front. Attach the other end of the Accessory Strap to the other end of the Back/Hip or Body Wrap strap. (Repeat this process for the second Body Wrap strap.) Adjust to the desired fit and area requiring relief.
The Accessory Strap can also be used to reduce any excess material preventing a perfect fit. If the Wrap seems big or bulky in a specific area, cinch or tighten the strap around the area for a more snug fit.
The Leg Wraps are perfect for treating the aches and pains that can radiate down from your lower back to the back of your thighs during your period. You may also experience pain in other areas of your legs during your period, in which case the Leg Wraps are ideal, because they can be applied to any part of your leg. The versatile Leg Wraps can also be worn on your back if your waist measures below 22".
If you have aches and pains in your legs during menstruation and you prefer warmth, use the BFST® Leg Wrap. It does an excellent job of providing comfort and relief.
If you find that cold works better for you, use the ColdCure® Leg Wrap to treat the aches and pains in your legs during menstruation. The combination of cold and compression is extremely effective.
The Wrist Wraps can be used to soothe the pain of the headaches you experience during your period. They're called Wrist Wraps, but like many of our products, they're versatile and can be used on several different areas of your body. Attach the Accessory Strap to one end of the Wrist Wrap and apply the Wrap around your forehead so the mesh pocket is directly covering the painful area.
If you like using something warm when you have a headache, our BFST® Wrist Wrap is ideal. Plug it in and apply it around your forehead while you're at rest for soothing relief.
If you prefer something cold to treat your headaches, the ColdCure® Wrist Wrap with superior cooling power is for you. It provides complete coverage and fast-acting relief of your nagging period headaches.
BFST® stimulates blood flow through the treatment area while you are at rest. The device brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the treatment area, improving your circulation. This helps relax the muscles and relieve cramping. Again, increasing blood flow in the soft tissue deep below the skin will not disrupt your flow or cause your flow to increase at all.
The BFST® device is easy to use. Put it on, plug it in, turn it on and sit back and relax. BFST® treatments are very pleasant and relaxing. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in the treatment area as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. You will experience a small amount of surface heat during BFST® treatments, as well as some warmth that comes from the increase in blood flow. You will not experience any shocks, vibrating, pain or discomfort from BFST® treatments. The device works quickly to soothe your period-related symptoms.
Before the ovulation phase of your cycle begins, the lining of your uterus starts to grow to prepare for the egg that will be released. This is caused by an increase in the hormone estrogen and is referred to as the follicular phase. When a mature egg is released from one of your ovaries, it travels through the fallopian tube and enters your uterus. This is called ovulation. It takes several days for the egg to travel through the fallopian tube and reach your uterus. During this time the lining of your uterus begins to grow thicker to prepare for the egg's arrival. It is not uncommon to feel some pain and cramping in your lower abdomen during ovulation.
If the released egg is not fertilized, it will be absorbed into your uterine lining, to be shed during your period. Once the unfertilized egg has been reabsorbed by your body, the lining of your uterus will begin to contract and shed, causing bleeding, pain and cramping. This is called menstruation. At the onset of menstrual bleeding, something called prostaglandins are released. These hormone-like molecular compounds cause the contractions in your uterus that lead to pain and cramping.
ColdCure® technology was developed specifically to address the need for a cold compression device that does not freeze the skin and underlying tissue. As a result, ColdCure® therapy can be applied for extended periods of time, providing superior relief from your period-related pain. Put a ColdCure® Wrap on and you will instantly feel relief and relaxation as it draws the pain and tension out of your body.
ColdCure® Wraps are made entirely of very stretchy material. They wrap around your body and apply a gentle pressure over the treatment area. The wrap comes with swappable cold packs of a very special design. They are soft and flexible and mold perfectly to the shape of your body, yet the gel inside them won't move out of place. Each ColdCure® Wrap comes with our unique RigiGel® packs. You use them 1 at a time, keeping the others in the fridge or the freezer so you can keep swapping them out as many times as you like. There's no need to take a break between treatments when using gel packs from the fridge. You can keep using them as long as you want the pain relief.
BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices. Class II medical devices are serious medical devices with very high standards of quality, safety and performance. Class II medical devices have hundreds of pages of regulations and standards to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments. This is a medical device, not a 'consumer good', but it is available for the public to buy and use at home.
The Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) Wrap is designed to promote blood flow in tissue below the dermal (fat and skin) layer. Utilizing our patented Energy Web®, specially controlled and incredibly safe EMR energy envelops the treatment area and stimulates blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the treatment area to improve your circulation.
BFST® Wraps have 3 different settings, so you can continue to increase the power of your treatments depending on how bad your symptoms are. During your first treatment, the treatment area will feel quite warm. This is because at first, your circulation is poor. The more treatments you do, the less warming sensation you will feel. This is good. As the warmth lessens from treatment to treatment, this is an indication that the circulation in the treatment area is improving. Better circulation means relief all the time, not just during treatments. This is the goal. When you feel very little warmth during a treatment, it is time to move up to the next power level. Don't rush it though, more heat doesn't mean better treatment. In fact, less heat means better treatment, so take your time moving up in levels.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® Wrap is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold around the treatment area to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the painful spots. The wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that guarantee a perfect fit.
Most people think that RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - is the formula to follow when treating pain. The truth is that temperatures below freezing can be too cold to effectively relieve pain. And these temperatures can also be dangerous. Ice (and other freezer based substitutes such as the blue ice pack) can actually freeze your skin and numb your nerves, causing 'cold burns' and even permanent damage to your underlying tissue. The proper solution is RCCE® - Rest, Cold, Compression & Elevation. We don't want to apply ice - we want to apply cold that is just above freezing. Yes, you want cold - and lots of it - but not so cold that it is below the freezing point of water.
While we recommend that you start by using them at refrigerator temperatures, you can store the RigiGel® packs in the freezer and use them as freezer packs. Even at the coldest freezer temperatures they retain all their flexibility and firmness. In terms of flex and form they feel exactly the same at room temperature as they do from the freezer.
Each ColdCure® Wrap comes with RigiGel® gel packs that contain 10x more gel than other packs, for maximum coverage of the area. When stored in the freezer, our XC® gel packs have 3x more cooling power per lb than standard gel packs. This means they stay cold longer so you won't have to swap the gels as often. Longer treatment times and more cold power means faster relief of pain and less handling of the sore area. This all results in an overall colder and more effective treatment.
The ColdCure® gel pack is inserted inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. We do not use one common gel pack in all our wraps. Each body part deserves a custom designed pack if it's going to work the best. No other wrap in the world has specifically designed cold packs for each and every part of the body. The wrap provides an even distribution of cooling power over the entire area you want to target.
We are now introducing a further improvement on our RigiGel® formula, called XC RigiGel®. Some of our ColdCure® Wraps now come included with our XC® gel packs. Traditional gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® formula helps to distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the gel pack. When cold pressure is applied to your body, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the pack. The cold energy in our gel packs is transferred from the cold spots to the warm spots much more effectively. This is a valuable improvement as your body will receive the cooling power of the entire pack. The temperature balancing power of this gel formula is unmatched.
The gel pack has 2 different coloured sides: a white side and a gold side. Both sides give you all the same benefits that our amazing XC RigiGel® formula has to offer! The gel pack can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your body or away from your body since the gel pack is not side specific.
