There are ceramic particles in the fabric that reflect body heat. It acts as a sort of heating pad, in other words. Only it's the horse/persons own body heat that is being reflected, so it's not HOT like it can be with other therapies. It increases circulation to the area, which can speed up healing, reduce inflammation, and loosen sore muscles.
I have the mini blanket for me and it seems to help me out.

It is supposed to direct body heat back as infrared heat, which is different than just plain heat. It is supposed to penetrate further than plain heat. I have a BOT Tshirt, and it feels no warmer to me than any other piece of clothing, but I feel SO much better when I wear it! Not stiff, and soreness stays away. My horses have never felt warm under the BOT sheet, but I know it works because I've tried it myself! :)

I can't explain it, but my understanding, the fibers uses the body heat to help circulation. Circulation helps the healing process. I have several blankets, wraps etc and I can tell a difference when I use their products on my horses as well as myself. One of the only products I can honestly say, is well worth the money.
