Product Review: Therabath Professional Paraffin Bath

I’m doing some reviews of items that have made my life easier, as I’ve had to adjust to having an Ehlers Danlos syndrome body. I am not being paid nor am I receiving anything for writing this review, but if you click on a product ad and buy an item I get a % at no additional cost to you.

Product Review: Therabath Professional Paraffin Bath

As I mentioned previously, when I lost health insurance I purchased some things I thought might help with pain relief. This parafin bath was one of the items.


TherabathPRO Professional Grade Paraffin Bath, Lavender Harmony

I have joint pain, but what bothers me the most is soft tissue pain, and that includes my hands.

This is a well-made product, sturdy, big enough to stick your foot in, and it comes with a lid and wax.

Someone needs to invent a bathtub-sized paraffin bath, so you can put your whole body in there.

Product Review: Shatki Mat

When I had to quit working (therefore losing health insurance) I bought some things that I hoped would help with pain relief. I knew I wouldn’t be going to the pain clinic anymore for trigger point injections. (Costs thousands….)


Shakti Mat TM – The Original (Green)

This is one of the things I tried. The Shakti Mat is a thin 17″ x 27″ fabric mat, with sharp plastic spikes on it.

It’s a portable “bed of nails.” One lies down on it, which hurts for the first few minutes, but eventually it creates an endorphin rush. The spikes are pointy so if you do use it, do it nekkidly or wear an old t shirt, because it will wreck your clothing.

I do use the Shakti Mat and it definitely helps with pain relief but it seems cheaply made (fabric is very thin) & so it isn’t worth the price. (Which has gone up since I bought it last year.) Maybe there is a cheaper knockoff?

Product Review: Corelle Livingware

I guess Corelle plates have been around a long time, and I think my friend’s family used them when we were kids, but I hadn’t heard of it until recently. (I grew up in a restaurant so I ate at the counter, on restaurant dishes.)



Corelle Livingware 16-Piece Dinnerware Set, Service for 4, Classic Cafe Red

Corelle plates are made of Vitrelle – layered tempered glass – which is used in scientific applications quite a bit. Beakers and such. It is very durable but can only go up to a certain temperature in the oven (350F).

I got the dinnerware because it is very very lightweight, and very very tough. That makes it easy on one’s joints & forgiving of EDS klutziness. These plates are way way lighter than the bowls and plates we had been using.

It’s been about 5 months since I started using it, and I’ve had no problems at all. It would be nice to have salad plates with the sets though.

I see the dinnerware sets have gone up in price about $5 since I got mine….

(Like everything else these days.)
