The gloves allow me to keep working! I am a pet groomer/salon owner who works long hours, attends yoga classes, and bike rides. All these activities stress my wrists. I faithfully wear the gloves at night, and did experience the unusual heat sensations the first few weeks. I have recommended your product to my hairdresser and a friend with advanced RA.
|THANK YOU THANK YOU THANKYOU
Wore the gloves last night and they worked great. The swelling of the osteoarthritic and RA joints was kept at a minimum and I did not lose feeling in the tips of my fingers.
Thank you very much for making a product that works!
Would recommend these to any one and will pass this along to my RA doctor.
What I like about Prolotex Gloves
They work. No gimicks, no sales calls. a reliable product. I have rheumatoid arthritis and when its bad i wear them to bed at night and the next morning my hands aren't as painful or swollen as the would have been without the gloves. Now they just need to make them for every body part. Knees, neck, elbows, wrists, ankles, etc... and in plus sizes. (oh and the inside (palm area) needs to have some kind of non stick lines. like leather or pleather. when my hands are really bad i wear them all day and its hard to drive with knit gloves on the steering wheel.

I've been wearing my Therapy Gloves for a year; I have carpal tunnel & secondary arthritis. I couldn't have functioned without my gloves. When I wear them at night, my fingers aren't swollen or numb in the morning. Thankfully, my husband thinks they look sexy. I just bought him a pair of the Therapy Socks to wear to bed (he has diabetes & very cold feet). Thank you for making our nights more pleasant!

|"I just have to let you know what a difference your socks made. One evening I was a bit exuberant in doing some stretching and woke up the next morning with severe pains in the front of my ankles and down my shins. I could hardly walk down the stairs to get my new socks. I put them on and within about 20 - 30 min. was able to get around the house. The severe pain was reduced to a bearable ache and I was able to get through the day. I took them off in the evening and almost immediately the pain in the front of my ankles increased again. I can't tell you how your socks helped me. My only thing now is to have you guys make a longer sock that will cover my shins... up to the knee maybe like knee socks.
Thanks again for a great product."

"The patches sent are a miracle. I have SLE Lupus, Fibro, Raynauds and Sjogrens. The minute I put the patch on low back near sactrum my back pain dissapears. I take Norco and Zohydro. Thank you!!" A.R.
|God Bless you! I don't know how it works, I don't care how it works, but for the first time in over a month, since I just today received the knee band I ordered & put it on, I can actually lift my leg up with NO PAIN! I have a Baker's Cyst in the back of my left knee. I can attest to the finger-less gloves helping my right wrist & trigger thumb problem..... these have saved me from surgery.... no pain since I started wearing these over a year ago! To be able to lift me leg up with NO pain today is even more PROOF that these are incredible! Thank you so much. I think I can be your Poster Woman..... 58 years old & going strong because of "PROLOTEX". I love you all!
|I just purchased a pair of your Prolotex Gloves for my mother who had been diagnosed with cancer a year and a half ago. One of the many side effects of her chemotherapy treatment is constant cold finger pain. Her pain is felt throughout the day, but is very severe at night. She wore the gloves the first time overnight and called to tell me that her fingers never felt cold and her pain went away while wearing your product. I want to thank you for helping her pain go away and I only wished that I would of thought of your gloves a year and a half ago to keep my mother comfortable through this very unfortunate time in her life.
I would be honored to have my comment posted on your website. I hope my comment makes many other customers purchase your product in the future. Thank you also for your words of kindness for my mother and I.
My mother stopped by the other day and mentioned to me that she had worn the gloves all through the night again with no more cold finger pain at all. I am so relieved that she is now comfortable at night and won't have to suffer with pain like this again.

Dear Folks, About 6 mos. ago I was having pain in both hands which folks would not believe. I ordered a pair of your gloves, which allowed me to sleep nights until I could get to an M.D. , who found severe carpal tunnel. Since I have had surgery on both wrists correcting the problem. Believe me I was only able to exist by using those gloves. Thank You John j. D.

I order the gloves on 12/1/ 2010, here it is 12/31/2010. I recived my gloes on 12/10/2010, and guess what, I no longer suffer with numbness in my fingers. I can continue working in the kitchen at my job, which requires repetitive use of a parin knife. That's how I got Carpal Tunnel Pain. Now 20 days later, really 15 days of wearing them to work and at bedtime, I suffer no-more symptoms. I'm back using my computer here at home, I could hardly use stand to touch anything that was metal or electric, cellphone, mouse etc. I was concerned that my situation was gonna be part of the rest of my life. Thank God for the Internet, where I searched symptoms, caused I had never heard of CTS before then. I've shared my experience with the gloves with co-workers and they have no clue how repetively working with knives can cause so much pain and agrravation to one's life.
P.S. Thanks for the gloves, I believe they saved me my job, cause I felt I was on my way to claim disability or Unemployment. GOD BLESS PROLOTEX!!
Therapy gloves were my answer to sore hands and carpal tunnel symptoms especially while sleeping, instead of waking up at different times of the night with numb and sore hands due to pain I am able to get some rest. Being on my feet all day at work my knees were starting to cause me problems and knowing that the gloves helped me with my hands as soon as I found out that there were products for the knee I immediately placed an order, thanks so much for this great alternative to the healing process.

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for changing my life with your amazing therapy gloves. I must admit that when I first bought them I was slightly skeptical as to whether they could really make that much difference. But after nearly 3 months of wearing them every night, the difference is incredible. I suffer from carpel tunnel syndrome, as do my mum and sister.
My sister has already had to have both her hands operated on to solve the problem, and I was beginning to get to the stage where I thought I would have to have the same done. I would wake nearly every night around 4.30 am because the numbness and pain in the hands/fingers would be unbearable by then. The only way to get the feeling back would be to get up and at that time of the morning it would be difficult, so I'd try to doze while all the time trying to shake off the pain, so I'd be tired most days through lack of sleep. Eventually I'd have to get up to get ready for work at 6.30 am and it would usually take up to 20 mins for the feeling to return in my hands, which was also extremely painful as the feeling come back. Trying to do anything when you can't feel your hands is extremely difficult, especially trying to make sandwiches!!!
Now, my life is completely transformed. I sleep right through to my alarm clock, there is almost no tingling in my fingers, hands, no more swollen fingers when I get up, no more numbness. I can feel again. It's just so wonderful. I wanted to let you know, so that you can maybe add this as a testimony for other people who are maybe not sure.
|The fingerless gloves have made a huge difference in my daily life -- giving me confidence that my hands will stay warm while the dexterity I need as a writer, piano-player, and "gadget-izer," is maintained.|
To the makers of Prolotex FIR Gloves and Socks.
While ordering gloves in the best interest of my mother, diagnosed with Raynauds, and having already 2 fingers removed, I decided to order gloves and socks for myself. My hands instantly turn white and numb upon temperatures below 60 degrees if not protected from the elements. My feet barely stay warm in insulated boots with wool socks.
I wore the socks and gloves to bed for the first week before putting them to use during the day.
I can now wear dress shoes to the office without having frozen feet with the Prolotex socks. I am extremely impressed with their ability to keep my feet warm.
Last weekend I attended a football game, less than 40 degrees outside, only having my hands covered with the gloves, and stayed perfectly warm. Of course, I wore the socks too and never felt a chill.
I don't know how you did it, but these socks and gloves are incredible. I am truly amazed that my hands and feet stay warm. One must be pro-active and wear them BEFORE your hands start to get cold.
They are very well worth the $40 I spent for each product. I only wish I could afford a few more pairs of socks so I wouldn't have to wash them daily.

I definitely slept better thr first night I received my Therpysocks. My feet were warm. Therefore, I am ordering two more pairs so I can have clean socks to wear regularly!

|I bought your gloves for a friend who suffered from arthritis but she was loth to try them at first.. then I spotted that they could "slow down collagen growth" and thought WOW
I'll try them. I have had Dupuytren's contacture in my right hand for over a year - it has progressed a little each week to the point that I cannot flatten my hand and it has recently started in my left hand. HOWEVER since I have worn your gloves for the past 2 months every night the disease has NOT PROGRESSED at all - in fact I can now flatten my hand to the table (still hurts a bit) but I can do it. I feel I MUST recommend these items to other sufferers. I don't think you realise HOW effective your gloves are in assisting this particular disease- as it is not listed on your site. I have sent this info directly to the Dupuytrens Society..In the hope they will pass it on to fellow sufferers.. Now my friend with arthritis has her own pair of gloves and we recommend your products to all we know who need them. Thanks a MIllion for giving us all hugely improved quality of life.

|I recieved (asked for) a pair of your gloves for Christmas. I couldn't be happier with the results! I have fibromyalgia, along with other pain issues, and the gloves not only decrease the pain in my hands, but in my arms, as well! I'm not talking just a little bit of relief, but a Huge difference in both pain and mobility!
As soon as I can, I'll be getting the socks. I just wish you could make fullbody coverage...like pagamas! With the way it's worked for my hands and arms, I can't help but think that if I had pagamas made of this stuff that just maybe I'd be able to stop or at least decrease the amount of narcotic pain medication I take! Please consider it, and, again, THANK YOU! I hope you all get very rich from this, and recieve many other blessings as well! You deserve it!
I was researching in the internet about a year ago, and found these your
website. I bought a pair of open finger gloves, because I have pain in
hands, can't slept well at night. It works wonder for me.
These products are amazingly very effective. Got a friend got swollen
ancle, she was limping for awhile, she's been to her doctor few times, she's got x-rayed and given medication but she still hurting. So I let her try a pair of socks I got awhile ago but I haven't used them. When I saw her after the weekend, she was smiling and said hasn't got pain anymore. Few weeks ago I ordered 2 pairs of socks, when I got them, I gave her a pair so she's got a spare and a pair for me.
The other friend of mine got different problem, she's got pain in her feet
and feel hot, so gave her a pair of socks to try, I don't know if it worked
but I told her to just try them on, (that was meant for me) but I don't want to see someone suffers. She put them on before we start to work and after the our shift finished, I asked her how's her feet and she smiles and said to me, there was no pain and did not feel hot (her feet). She also got pain in her hands, she can't sleep well at night, so I let her try my spare gloves, just after the first night she wore them (gloves) she said she slept like a baby, no pain!! I was so happy for them (my two friends). Thank you very much for these products they worked wonder for us. We are working as laborer in a meat industry, we are standing the whole work time.
Now I spread the good news about these products. I did not even know some of my other friends who are working in different company are suffering from pains in their hands and or their feet. That's why I have few items ordered for them.
Thanks so much again. God Bless you!

they are better than anything on the market today, what a great product they are, I would recommend to anyone who is having problems with there feet to give them a try as you will never were any other socks again, kind regards

I received my socks within 5 days Canada to Brisbane Australia.
The first thing I have noticed is that my feet are not throbbing as they were. The foot with the broken bone still hurts but we are talking 24 hours.
Overall I am feeling positive about the future results.
I must confess once again that this 'Far Infrared' technology works. Changing old habits (not wearing gloves around the house, day or night) is not easy. When I first purchased my own therapeutic gloves, I immediately noticed that my hands did not ache when I wore them at night. So when we know something works, why don't we continue? Crazy and guilty as charged! Well, my hands have been so bad come mornings lately, something said last evening, June 7/13, that I must put these gloves back on, and sure enough, my hands did not ache during the night and are not sore this am. Are they actually helping to heal my hands as well as take away the pain? That I can't say, wouldn't surprise me! However, taking the aching away during the night, with no pain come morning, is certainly worth having these gloves, healing or no healing, no question about it.|

I'm doing homeopathy, infoceuticals, detoxicating diet but nothing helped me as much as the gloves for my aching fingers.
I wore them for three nights only and the difference is so obvious that I'd like to order a full body FIR suit...
I'll get a pair for my mom, too!
Thanks for being,

I was absolutely amazed a the speed of delivery. I have worn the band 1 day
now and already experiencing great relief in the discomfort of knee
pain. Thank you so much .Barbara C. UK
|I am so amazed. I already knew this product was good. But had no idea that I would feel relieve this fast. I put the sleeve on my knee yesterday afternoon and it hasn't left my leg. I have got up this morning. With no pain, or ache, or stiffness. All I feel is the new parts, my bionic knee :). I gardened a lot yesterday and my hands are full of arthritis, I wore the gloves all night., today they are almost pain free, but still a little stiff, but without the gloves they would be hurting., I'm so glad I kept this pamphlet, and remembered you guys.
|I did get the socks for my father. He has myopathy of the feet from years of heavy diabetes and nothing has worked for him. He could hardly walk and was trying to swallow his pride to get a walker to assist him. I ordered the socks for him and they worked. He can walk much better than before.
I am uncertain as to how you came up with the idea or the material for your products, but am happy you did. I agree with that Diane lady, they are nothing short of a miracle.
Thanks for being so understanding about this.
|REVEIVED socks andknee band 5 days ago. The socks are a "GOD SEND"- I have suffered from Peripheral Neuropathy for the last two years. Doctors have nbeen unable to help me other than increase my Lyrica medication to 350 per day. I dreadedd going to bed and this past few nights have been excellent. I also wear them during the day.
I have recentlyhad a knee replacement and dealing with both problems has been hard to deal with. I am hoping this improvement will continue and I will be very happy to tell my doctor of my new found trreasure.

|Dear Sock and Glove makers,I found your Far Infrared on the Internet as I have Periperal Neuropathy. Iam 68 - but most people think I am 50!! I have bought your products. Now I AM MUCH MUCH HAPPIER - No pain in my hands and feet. I use no PN drugs (Gaberpentin etc)no pain killers - just vitamins, herbs and sensible diet and exercise and your amazing Far Infrared Gloves and socks - I have 2 pairs of each and they have eased my daily life - THANK YOU
Yes - you can post my email on your website - is there any more news ref your long infrared socks - blessings Christine B.
I purchased a pair of these socks last month for my 86 year old Dad who suffers from peripheral neuropathy in both of his feet. The pain has been almost unbearable. Within a week of wearing his new Far Infrared Socks he said that his pain has been reduced by 50%, and he wants another pair. We are thrilled, hence this order for another pair. Please feel free to use this reference.

What I like about Prolotex Socks
I'm a 7-year patient of Dialysis for renal failure with peripheral Neuropathy. I remember reading all of the testimonials and thinking hogwash, but decided to buy a pair of socks despite the costs' I just got through
washing my socks last night after wearing them for three days and feeling my feet returning to normalcy. I haven't worn my socks all day and my feet still feel Great! I will probably wear them at night only when I go to bed. Also, I'm no longer taking my medication of 100mg of Gabapentin. It os no longer needed! Thank you very much Prolotex!!! I will be ordering gloves soon.

|My mom was diagnosed with Raynaud's syndrome in the Fall of 2013 in her hands. This disease caused her blood vessels and small arteries in her hands to spasm and contract violently keeping her in constant pain during the day and all night. The doctor prescribed her 2 types of pain medication to help her with pain and sleep. We were aware that the slightest exposure to cold or emotional stress caused her to have an attack of severe pain. I felt helpless but did research on Raynaud's Syndrome. I discovered that infrared therapy gloves helped with circulation and pain so I ordered my mom a pair and they were delivered to her 2 days after Christmas 2013. My mom immediately put the gloves on and felt tingling almost immediately. I told her to be patient and give it the best shot she could by wearing the gloves day and night for one week. After just 4 days, my mom's life changed. No pain, fingers went back to a beautiful pink colour from pure white and her fingers warmed up. I talked to her this morning on the phone (exactly 37 days from the time she began wearing the gloves) and she has no pain and her hands are warm and still pink in colour. I am so impressed and feel like I want to promote this product to everyone I know that is experiencing poor blood circulation or Raynaud's disease. I am so happy for my mom. Thank you.|
|Thank you for making such a product. I got my Raynauds Disease when I was 23 years old. I'm 66 now. I bought 3 pairs of your socks before I moved back to N.Y.S. They are wonderful! They keep my feet warm. I've hoped for something like this product for years. My husband was sure they'd have a cure before our retirement. He passed away in 2009. They haven't found a cure but at least I found your socks. Thanks again!

It is imperative that I join those who have given a testament to the benefit of these gloves.
I had a sudden onset of Reynaud’s (red fingers) starting in November, 2010. I have suffered from migraine headaches and I thought that this was the ultimate pain but little did I know what Reynaud’s would be like. I could never have imagined any pain to be so excruciating. The cramping pain went through my fingers & thumbs and radiated to my elbows. It felt as if someone was smashing a window on my forearms continuously. Needless to say, I could not sleep although I was taking Tylenol 3’s - they did nothing for this pain. Fortunately I went to the internet and found your advertisement. I dubiously ordered the gloves, not expecting that for one second the Infrared full finger gloves could relieve the intensity of this pain.
The first night wearing the gloves, I did not have the excruciating, cramping pain and have not had it since then. It is just remarkable that these Infrared gloves could have provided this amazing relief.
I cannot thank you enough.

I wanted to let you know that my wife has been using her gloves for
several weeks now and thinks they are amazing. Where her fingers would
turn white before, they now stay pink with normal circulation. We'd go
shopping before she got them, and it seemed that, if she even looked at
anything cold, her fingers would turn white. With the Far infrared
gloves, that no longer happens. It is a very dramatic difference.
She has recommended the gloves to other people, at least one of whom
I can't say enough good things about the gloves. I've gotten her many pairs of gloves over the years, some well insulated, that she wouldn't wear because of the glove's "fat" fingers and the fact that her fingers turned white anyway. Your gloves are thin and fashionable, and keep her hands warm.
I have had Raynaud's since childhood and at 46 years of age, has become so uncomfortable with daily activities I began searching the internet for remedies (not wanting to take medication). Being a runner it is quite difficult to find gloves/mittens to keep my hands warm on cold fall/winter runs. I came across your website and initially did not intend to use the Prolotex Classy Fit gloves for running; however, because they are so thin and lightweight I began using them as liners under my mittens. WOW! What an amazing difference. I use them on every run and bring them with me everywhere I go. They are truly a miracle for me. I will be ordering several more pair. To people who don't have Raynaud's they cannot understand what a true blessing it is not to suffer with numb painful fingers. Thank you so much for a wonderful product!
Yes, feel free to post this on your testimonial page. Once again, I love the product! Thank you.
Having recently purchased, on separate occasions, two pairs of gloves and two pairs of socks my Mother now wishes us to purchase a second pair of socks for her. Suffering from severe Reynauds Disease she has found your product most helpful. Recently she had had to be admitted to hospital with her fingers worryingly blackened. The hospital staff were extremely anxious about this, the worse episode she has ever had. Therefore, after research by ourselves found your gloves, she has been keen to try ghem. They have provided dramatic relief. She now wants a second pair of socks.
My query to you is that I have been careless of the $5 dollar voucher which you enclosed in the last package. Would you be prepared to ship another pair of socks to my mothers address again and honour the last voucher you sent as you have the previous two. I will await an answer before I put in my application for the second pair of socks.
Thank you for your attention.
|I've been meaning to get back to you regarding Prolotex gloves. The gloves have been working very well for me. Within two weeks of wearing the Prolotex gloves, I have noticed significant changes in the blood circulation of my hands. My hands are much warmer on a consistent basis, and do not turn to "ice cold" when touching cold items. These gloves are truly amazing and I cannot believe how quick I have had positive results. I've been searching for a solution to my problem of cold hands, and I've finally found it. Ryan R. S.|
|My wife suffers from chronic pain in her hands due to RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. We have found the therapy gloves to be helpful in controlling the pain.

"I love the gloves. I have scleroderma and raynaud's and ulcers on my finger. I had twice surgery for artery reconstruction to increase blood circulation. It is to soon to know about the gloves because I have to wait to wear them, i have open sores. But I tried them and I felt good and they will protect me. Hopefully, you will also come up with gloves to play guitar and lead guitar. I mean gloves who will slide on the guitar strings, I will spend my life buying them. Thank you."
I recently bought 5 pairs of the relaxed fit socks for my mum who had a stroke & is suffering from neuropathy. They have made a great difference to her - swelling has gone done & pain has eased. Delighted with the results, many thanks.

After reading other peoples positive reviews about the FIR gloves I decided to order a pair of open fingertip gloves to try for my trigger finger problems. I have had the gloves approx 2 weeks now, and have only worn them at night, although I still have the problem it is a lot less painful and can now manage most everyday tasks as normal. I will be ordering some of the full gloves for winter.
Many thanks to the manufacturers for such a wonderful product.
|What I like about Prolotex Gloves
1st off the customer service was GREAT. Katherine answered my questions to the fullest and got me ordering the right gloves for my needs. Also spoke with the manager who was just as wonderful I was searching on line last week about home remedies for trigger finger, I have it in my middle finger on left hand and thumb on right hand. I came across this site. I did some reading, then made a call to get more info. In the end I ended up buying a bundle pack, which is a set of the closed finger, open finger and wrist band. I wear the closed during the night, and the open while working or typing. I have not tried the wrist band yet. Well after only 1 day of wearing these gloves I am able to make a fist with my left hand something I have not been able to do in over a year.
Would I recommend these glove to anyone who has hand, finger or wrist pain.... YES I WOULD!!!!!
Therapeutic Eye Mask
I purchased the eye mask to help me with eye strain and fine lines around my eyes...the lines on my forehead and between my eyes have smoothed SIGNIFICANTLY. This is the best thing EVER. I am buying another for myself and one for my mom. Please, please make a face mask. Such an awesome product!
|My gloves and wrist bands arrived on my mail boat yesterday. Only taking two weeks to get here! I put the wrist bands on immediately and last night I wore the gloves to bed
With out a word of a lie – I had the best sleep I have had for months and months. Carpel tunnel in both wrists is so bad and I wake several times every night month in month out! Last night I slept so well but woke here and there as I am so used to it but to stop to think and realise that my hands were NOT numb!!
These little miracles are WONDERFUL J
I could feel my hands wanting to do their numb thing BUT the gloves were doing their thing against this and they worked!
I can see I will have to order another set of each as they will get wrecked with the work I do.
I will be in touch
I so thank you for such a wonderful product
Best to you, Kathie (New Zealand)
