The Effects of a Hot Water Bottle:
Older hot water bottles were made of ceramic material, but modern bottles are typically made of rubber.Hot water bottles have been used for centuries as a way of warming up the bed. As early as the 16th century, bed warmers containing hot coals were used for heating purposes. Later, similar containers containing hot water were developed, and these were made of metal, wood, glass or earthenware. In modern times, rubber or a similar material is typically used to make hot water bottles, and is covered in a fabric or cloth cover to avoid uncomfortable contact with the hot rubber material. Such hot water bottles have several medical, physical and psychological applications, in addition to their use as a heat source.
Hot water bottles are a thrifty and efficient means of heating up a bed during cold weather. Particularly in houses with poor or inefficient heating systems, a hot water bottle provides lasting night-time heat for very little energy outlay. The only electricity used is for boiling hot water to fill the bottle. Ho -water bottle use may allow the homeowner to turn down the household heating system while the family members are warm in bed with their "hotties." Although hot water bottle use for heating has generally declined as more modern home heating systems have evolved, bottles remain popular in the U.K., developing nations where central heating is not available, and more recently in Japan where hot water bottles are prized as an economical heat source
Hot water bottles can be used as a medical treatment for physical pain. Application of the hot water bottle to the pain site can achieve a degree of pain relief, without the use of painkilling drugs. Alternately, hot water bottles may be used as a supplement to an existing regimen of pain-controlling drugs, for additional pain relief. Hot water bottles are a popular non-drug remedy for muscular pain, stomach ache, and menstrual cramps. Heat works to relieve pain by increasing circulation to muscles, thereby decreasing spasms and reducing inflammation
The psychological effects of a hot water bottle can be very soothing. A hot water bottle can be helpful in signifying bedtime for children or adults who struggle with insomnia, getting to sleep, or staying asleep. Hot water bottles are soothing to sick or tired children in particular, as they act as a comfort item as well as a pain-reducing heat source
