I had great hopes for this product based on other reviews. Although it is comfortable and quite supportive, I never did feel any heat, nor has it really eased/diminished my sprained ankle. -(

I got these for a friend who had an ankle injury years ago that was troubling him through our bitter winter. He said they helped.

Having been born with flat feet, I have always needed to watch what I wore on my feet. But over the years my left foot has progressively gotten worse. Seems to hurt most of the time when walking any distance. Told myself that how it is as you get older and gain weight as well. I bought this support on a lark, but must admit it has helped so much more than I expected. I now am able to walk without the pain I had decided that I would have to live with, If you are having ankle problems, you too might want to try this. I must say that I believe in self healing and medicating rather than a doctor, but that is just me.

They are wonderful. I thought that I had ordered 2 of each but, since I'm "mildly senile" I probably didn't. I'll order more. Thanks for your great catalog.

Replacing supports left behind while traveling. These help me so much more than the others I bought to replace them.

I have the knee braces and hope these work just as well to reduce pain and swelling of the ankles.

I bought this to try with my plantar fascitis. It seems to work well, but I wish there was a version that covered the whole heel. I have to pull the opening down under the heel as the stiffer stitching around the opening is painful on the upper heel. Other than this, the product does what is supposed to do. I have no pain while wearing it under a sock.

Comfortable, not too snug, and bought the large. Warming. Great for winter. Wish it covered the heal too.

I have an entire drawer full off assorted braces & ointments to help cope with the affects of arthritis, bursitis and plantar fasciitis but after reading the description & reviews for these I decided it was worth giving them a try. I am so glad that I did. Most braces, after a few hours of wearing, begin to act like a boa constrictor on my feet, cutting off my circulation. If they don't do that, they tend to cause pressure type sores or blisters where the seams are under my foot. These braces not only don't do that but I was astonished to discover that within seconds of putting them on, I began to feel the warmth they were generating, so soothing! I think I will now be giving the knee wrap version of these a try too!

My husband has bad ankles and wears these all day for support and heat while at work. He comes home without the swelling and pain he has if he uses other supports. And he is not limping after working all day.

These ankle supports helped my husband with foot pain more than anything else he has tried!

I cannot tell that this item does any good whatsoever. My ankle doesn't feel better when I wear it or after I take it off. I tried putting it in the sun to charge it, but it still did nothing.

Great ankle support -- warming and soothing, never tight or binding.

I have been taking Ibuprofen and putting and strapping an ice pack to my ankles when I work in Seattle and have to walk many blocks from the ferry terminal. I had almost given up on being able to use my treadmill when I tried the bamboo ankle socks. I don't have to take Ibuprofen or use the ice pack anymore. I just wear the ankle socks when exercising or walking long distances. This keeps the swelling down and allows me to get back in shape. They really work.

This product is great. I am on my feet at work and this truly supports my ankles and reduces swelling and pain.

Effective. Neutral warmth and compression. I bought two different sizes because my ankles needed two sizes when I actually measured. Happy.

Disappointed. The sizes must run very small. I bought the large on for my son who plays basketball, and gets injured from time to time. Could not even get it past his toes.

Very good support. I don't know that it helped the plantar fasciitis but it is getting better slowly.

I like this, but I have the large and it is still too tight. I do end up using it on my wrists tho and it helps there a lot since the one for the wrist is too small and doesn't cover the thumb. This really has helped my partner's ankle tho. She wears it at night since the line at the bottom of her foot made it painful to wear while walking.

I love this support! It feels like a sock but gives my ankle the extra support it needs while healing. I had Achilles tendon surgery in March plus other repair on weak spots and it has been a long healing process. The support definitely reduces the swelling that I was having when I would find myself on my feet a lot. Because of the surgery, I ordered the large size and it's perfect!

I have ordered three of these ankle supports one for me and two for my son. They help heal -- I am recovering from a sprained ankle and injured foot -- and offer great support. It is easy to slip on and off versus the ankle brace the podiatrist had me purchase which has velcro straps and laces. Love this convenient ankle support and I suggest that anyone who has problems with their ankles or ankle to upper foot purchase one of these.

I'd purchased this for my husband, who had major surgery on his foot as a toddler and now has an age-weakened ankle that has been troubling him for a couple of years. He's used a number of ankle supports from his doctor, from medical supply companies, and from pharmacies--but this was the one that seemed to help him the most. So, I'd purchased 3 more of them for him on the weekend. It's not bulky or awkward to wear like some of the others were. It's comfortable and his ankle feels a lot better.

Comfortable, very supportive and way cute! These do the job in all departments.

Although I measured my ankle as a size medium, the brace really cut into my leg so tightly that I couldn't wear it. I then ordered a large and it still cut into my leg very badly. I cut the top of the band to give it a little extra room which helped.

We receive so many submissions for ''pain relief'' items that don't work that I've become jaded at any such claim. When one of my favorite natural health practitioners told me about the success he was having with these supports made from fabric containing bamboo charcoal, I was skeptical, but I told him I'd try them. Would you believe they had a 100% success rate among my friends and colleagues with mild to severe aches and pains? One of our buyers who experiences a lot of pain walking at gift shows was completely pain-free for five consecutive days while wearing the ankle support. Read more...

My kickboxing instructor, who is scheduled for knee surgery, has spent hundreds of dollars on knee braces, wraps, acupuncture, meds, etc., and he's so happy with the knee supports that he asked if he could sell them in his studio! They've improved his circulation so much that he's back in the ring coaching and performing like he's in his 30s. He says they're the best knee supports he has ever used (and he's been in martial arts for 50 years).

Whether you have arthritis, joint pain, or a sports injury, these supports might be the solution. They're made with bamboo charcoal which emits far-infrared rays as well as negative ions. After wearing them for just a few minutes, you will feel heat generated from the bamboo charcoal interacting with your own body heat. When I asked for the science behind this, I got 79 pages of documented clinical research. The bottom line for me is that good blood circulation promotes good health, and far-infrared energy has been shown to enhance circulation, provide anti-inflammatory effects, and boost the immune system. I'm very excited to pass these supports on to all who need relief from pain!

Your reaction to these supports will vary depending on your specific ailment and your state of being. The more hydrated you are, the quicker you will feel the heat it generates. You can wear your support until your inflammation, aches, and pain are gone or have subsided significantly and as long as you need or want to. Just drink a lot of water to keep hydrated. Just like having an energetic healing session, the energy will stay with you for a while afterwards.

Your bamboo support is washable in cold water, gentle cycle, and low heat dry. Put it in direct sunlight to recharge once every 2-3 months and to reverse any odor, energy, etc., it may have absorbed.

The approximate circumference measurement is for the widest point of this support. The support will stretch up to an additional 2" wider than the circumference. You'll want the support to fit snugly, so get one that's up to 2" smaller than your measured circumference.
