ActivePatch 4 U

Have you seen all the professional athletes with these funky looking patches all over their bodies? Have you been wondering what that is and how “It” works? Well here you go!

Over the last 3 years, Active Patch 4U has been developed in close collaboration with some of the top Trail Running athletes. Active Patch 4U is, however, useful for every sport.

This weekend I had the chance to spend some time with South-Afric’s ActivePatch 4 U Brand Ambassador Christiaan Greyling.

Christiaan gave us a presentation and some general information around the brand and how the patch works. So let me get straight into it and give you some basic information.

The Science you will have to read on their website www.activepatch4u.co.za because it is quite complicated but the website explains how the patch works.

So for you dummies like me this is the very basic explanation of how the patch works, but if you have time please go and read on the website.

Active Patch 4U is composed of a mix of more than 20 natural metal oxides such as iron; magnesium; titanium; silicon; manganese and zirconium oxides.

Each oxide is known for its infrared energy emissivity effect —which we can call ‘heat-energy’. They have been used for decades, especially in Japan and Korea, in common infrared lamps and other infrared emitting products. So the patch then radiates back the energy on a specific spectrum back into your body.

Just like dry-needling the patch makes your body aware of the area where the patch is placed, and because of that the body sends more Oxygen and Nutrients to that area. This will help with:

Prevention: Applying Active Patch 4U to a known problem area will help strengthen it. It also limits the chance for a recurrence of the problem associated with that area.

Comfort: Applying Active Patch 4U will help stimulate and relax the problem area.

Post-treatment: Active Patch 4U contributes to a general energetic well-being along with benefiting a specific area. However, our patches are not aimed at treating illness.

I used the patch on my calf and back and all I can say is that the patch does have an effect on the area. I always have a specific area on my back that cramps during long Trail Runs, I applied the patch the night before and ran the next day without any problems.

Have a look at the spincontrol Double-Blind Independent Study on 110 people HERE which showed some very positive results!

You can get your hands one some of the patches at the online store www.activepatch4u.co.za/Shop/

Be sure to check out the Self-Help zone on the website for instructions on where to apply the patches on the body.
