FAQs: BeneFab by Sore No-More
BENEFAB BY SORE NO-MORE
Q: Are the BeneFab® by Sore No-More products washable?
A: Yes. The BeneFab by Sore No-More products are washable. To wash them, machine wash in cold water with a mild detergent and then line dry. Heat can compromise the effectiveness of the ceramic therapy, so do not machine dry or leave in direct sunlight. Do not use fabric softeners or bleach.
Q: How does the ceramic therapy work?
A: The fibers of the fabric are made up of ceramic nano-particles which are a combination of 30 lead-free minerals such as silica [SiO2], magnesium [Mg], and aluminum [Al]. The materials emit FAR-infrared rays, a natural ray that the sun emits daily. The rays are absorbed by the body and heat is created in that area. With this heat you are dilating the capillaries (fine blood vessels) to stimulate oxygen flow. This helps deliver oxygen and added nutrients to relax muscles and reduce pain and swelling in joints, tendons, and ligaments.
Q: How does magnetic therapy work?
A: Magnet therapy is the application of the magnetic field of electromagnetic devices or permanent static magnets to the body for purported health benefits.
Q: How quickly will I feel improvement?
A: Many people begin feeling the benefits of the ceramic therapy right away through a warming or slight tingling sensation. Even if you don’t feel a warming or slight tingling sensation, most people notice a reduction in pain and looser muscles within 20 minutes of wearing the products. The longer you wear them, the more you will feel these improvements.
Q: How long do I need to wear the products?
A: Due to the safe, non-invasive nature of ceramic therapies, you can wear the products as long as you would like in order to increase your comfort. We do recommend that you start with short periods of time between 30 minutes to an hour. This allows your body to adjust to the increase in circulation which can help to remove toxins from your body. Just like after a massage, you can feel a bit off or “under the weather” while your body removes toxins. Gradually increasing the length of time you use the products over a period of a week or two will allow your body to adapt without feeling this way. As you adapt, you can build up to longer durations of 8 to 12 hours of use.
Q: Do the BeneFab by Sore No-More products ever lose their effectiveness?
A: We infuse all of our materials with the ceramic fiber, meaning the ceramic fiber is permanently infused into the threads of our products through a melting process. In theory, your products should never lose their benefits as long as you care for them properly. Refer to the washing instructions for proper care.
Q: How do you begin using the ceramic products?
A: We recommend users start by slowly introducing the fabric to your body by using the products for no more than 4 hours at a time. After implementing this regiment for 4-6 days, your body will have had time to familiarize itself with the actual effects of the material. Due to the high increase in blood circulation, it is possible for your body to react with slight pain and/or swelling. If pain or swelling occurs within this first week, simply discontinue use of the product at that time, and try re-introducing it the next day.
Once you feel you are comfortable with the fabric up to four hours at a time, you may increase your wear of the products as comfort allows. We recommend you wear the product(s) as much as possible for at least 3 weeks to allow healing and therapeutic measures to take effect.
