Therapik(R) Offers Timely Bug Bite Relief as U.S. Braces for Summer Mosquito Epidemic

20:00 EDT 5 Jul 2011 | Globe Newswire



FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 6, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Thanks to the spring’s unusually warm, wet weather, agricultural experts from Oregon to New Jersey are predicting that a bumper crop of mosquitoes will plague much of the U.S. this summer. Fortunately, Therapik®—a device confirmed by the FDA to deliver bug bite relief—is providing Americans with a welcome weapon against the pain and itching from mosquito bites and bee and wasp stings

“Standing water resulting from heavy rains and flooding serves as the ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes,”explains Ira Carlin of MorePower2U, a worldwide distributor of Therapik.”People living in flood-affected areas right now are particularly vulnerable, whether they’re camping, biking or in their own backyard. Therapik comes in handy because it offers a mess-free, drug-free, clinically proven remedy for common bug bites. And since it can be reused, it is eco-friendly and saves money as well.”

Small, lightweight and battery-powered, Therapik has been shown to soothe the pain and itching from insect bites and stings. The device’s design is based on a simple, scientifically proven principle. Most insect venom is thermolabile, or sensitive to heat. Therapik’s patented technology delivers heat in the precise temperature range necessary to deactivate the venom from over 20,000 different species of insects and sea creatures. As the heat neutralizes the venom and increases blood flow to the affected area, there is a marked reduction in swelling, redness, pain and itching. Therapik can be reapplied as often as necessary until sufficient bug bite relief is obtained. Most Therapik users find that one 20- to 30-second application is enough to stop the itch and pain permanently.

Therapik has received Seals of Approval from the North American Fishing Club and the National Home Gardening Club, based on their independent field tests. The bug bite relief device was demonstrated on a January 7, 2011 segment of the TV show “The Doctors,” during which pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears endured a manually administered bee sting. Within 20 seconds of applying Therapik to the sting, Dr. Sears’ pain was eliminated. Therapik has also been featured in the June 2011 edition of Redbook Magazine and the July 2011 edition of Better Homes and Gardens.

“I was amazed—mosquito bites just go away,” writes Rosella Glynn of White River, South Dakota on the Therapik website. “And deer fly bites have always made me swell up badly and itch for days, but with the Therapik, all signs of the bite were gone.”

In addition to mosquito bites, Therapik has been shown to be an effective treatment for stings and bites from bees, wasps, hornets, black flies, ants, jellyfish, fleas, ticks and even stinging nettle. This bug bite treatment device is safe for both adults and children when used as instructed.

With a retail price of $12.95, Therapik has a one-year replacement guarantee under normal operating conditions. For more information or to purchase the Therapik, please visit
