2.0 out of 5 stars Felt no heating on application, then later painful burning., 26 Jan 2014
I tried this out as it sounded relaxing. It states on the back that massaging it into feet creates a "pleasant warming" sensation of "pure relaxation." I rubbed it in and felt nothing - no warming at all. That was disappointing as I have cold feet and thought it might be nice, though I was a bit skeptical as to whether it would really feel warm or just feel like those muscle creams that say they warm your muslces (but really just make your skin feel like its hot).

The Happiness Project: Or, Why I Spent a Year Tryi&hellip by Gretchen Rubin

Undoing Depression: What Therapy Doesn't Teach You&hellip by Richard O'Connor

It is very comprehensive, going over all the different aspects of depression. It treats it like the complicated thing that it is - there are many different causes for it, and each individual facing depression will have different combinations of symptoms and combined illnesses. It goes over all these things, offering a wide range of treatments. Each person may need to try many things before they find what works for them, but this is a great starting point to see what might work for you. Not only… Read more
