Therapik works on the scientific principle that most insect venom is thermolabile (sensitive to heat). Therapik delivers heat in the precise temperature range necessary to deactivate the venom from over 20,000 different species of insects and sea creatures.

The Therapik relieves the pain and itch from bug bites and insect stings with the direct application of heat for 20-30 seconds in order to breakdown the venom and saliva proteins left behind after a sting or bite. This is what causes the pain and itch.  Therapik also helps reduce the bite’s swelling by increasing blood flow to the bite or sting.
