Menopause

Calm Cuffs: A Kickstarter and a Giveaway

I received an email from Elizabeth Paulson with news of an innovative new product. Here’s the scoop, and thank you, Elizabeth!

Our mother is a saint.

Except when she gets too hot. It’s always been like this. This sweet woman would be lovingly sewing our Halloween costumes one day, and then the next, she’s hurling a spatula across the kitchen because the oven is on and the pasta is boiling and it’s too hot. Guess what menopause was like in our house? Yeah. Bad.

One day, instead of fleeing, we raced to the freezer and put a bag of frozen peas on our mom’s wrists. It was as if we’d switched the “off” button. She felt better instantly and was back to her old self in seconds. “Someone should invent ice packs for wrists,” she said.

So we did!

Calm Cuffs are perfect for quick relief from discomfort related to:

  • Hot flashes
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Overheating

Based on the science of using temperature to change your emotional state and body chemistry, Calm Cuffs are cooling wrist bands to help you calm down and reach your zen place, even when life gets heated.

This product may just help your family as much as it’s helped ours. Our mom is now one cool woman, we’ve been enjoying peace from life’s stressers, and we hope you’ll help make our dream of Calm Cuffs a reality by supporting us on Kickstarter.
