SUMMARY: Patients who participated in a clinical study for menopause relief reported that the Cool Wrap is easy to use, comfortable to wear and provides immediate and lasting relief for their menopausal symptoms.
The most common treatment for symptoms associated with menopause is hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which can be expensive and pose risks to your health. Research has shown the HRT can put women at higher risk for breast cancer, heart attacks, strokes and cognitive decline.
When possible, I recommend non-invasive, non-pharmacological options to my patients including cold therapy for hot flashes. I have clinically tested cool therapy wraps and found them to be one of the most effective forms of natural relief for menopausal symptoms.

Opal Cool Wrap Clinical Protocol
1.) Place the Opal Cool Wrap in refrigerator or freezer for 30 minutes.
2.) When chilled, remove from refrigerator and place the wrap directly on your skin or over light clothing.
3.) Attach the elastic straps to the wrap from front to back, under arms, for a closer, comfortable fit and deeper cooling penetration.
3.)Wear the Opal Cool Wrap twice a day for 60 minutes. This builds resiliency in your brown adipose tissues, which helps reduce the number and intensity of hot flashes. You do not have to wear the wrap during a hot flash to get results (but it provides soothing relief when you can).
4.) As needed, wash with soap and water or a mild antimicrobial product. Air dry. Return to refrigerator for next use.
How Opal Cool Wrap Works
Why is Cold Therapy Beneficial for Hot Flashes?
A Natural Cool
It can be worn directly on the skin, or over light clothing, and maintains a comfortable temperature of 58º F (15º C) for up to an hour. Adjustable straps conform comfortably to every woman’s body type.
Why Cold Therapy is Beneficial for Hot Flashes
As women age and become perimenopausal, estrogen levels fluctuate and decrease. This effects the normal regulation of brown adipose tissue activity and contributes to core body temperature fluctuations, including hot flashes.
Cool therapy in areas associated with brown adipose tissue has been shown to produce a calming effect on hot flashes, while also providing cooling comfort and soothing relief.
For women experiencing hot flashes, the Cool Wrap provides targeted relief to the places where women are very receptive to cold therapy: the upper back and neck area, between the shoulders. This area can perceive and regulate body temperature, and contains significant amounts of brown adipose tissue, a key tissue involved in heat generation (thermogenesis).
As women age, the amount and activity of brown adipose tissue decreases in response to decreased estrogen levels experienced during menopause. This reduction in brown fat activity contributes to core body temperature fluctuations, including hot flashes, in menopausal women.
Cold therapy has been shown to produce a calming effect on hot flashes, while also providing comfort and soothing relief for women during this time of transition.
Women who participated in the study reported feeling positive results and a decrease in hot flashes within the first week, but achieved significant, and sometimes dramatic, benefits after four weeks of use with the following protocol.
