COLD COMPRESS
Place gel compress in your freezer for at least 1 hour.
Remove compress from freezer, wrap in a towel or cloth and test compress temperature for personal comfort level.
When temperature is acceptable, apply to the affected area. *Note: As freezer temperatures vary, monitor the skin periodically during application to avoid frostbite. Cold affects individuals differently, always let comfort be your guide.
Store in freezer for future cold therapy use.

HOT COMPRESS
If gel compress has been in the freezer, let it thaw to room temperature before heating in the microwave
Lay compress flat in microwave. Heat at full power (1200 watts) for 25 seconds.
Remove from microwave and check for desired temperature (temperature will continue to rise slightly). If additional heat is desired, return to microwave and heat in 10-second increments.

Do not heat compress more than twice in 1 hour. Excessive heating may cause compress to rupture and leak.
