Thermal therapy has been widely used to increase the immunity of the human body. The physical parameters in blood pressure and systolic time were investigated according to the effect of shoulder heat treatment. There were almost no changes in body temperature and oxygen saturation after two subjects in their 20s with different blood pressures were almost the same as those before SHT. The pulse rate, heart rate, and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) were all lower after SHT. In particular, the systolic blood pressure (SBP) had decreased by an average of 4 mmHg from an average of 128 mmHg for Subject-1 and by an average of 7 mmHg from an average of 102 mmHg for Subject-2. The systolic time (S.time) after SHT was increased by an average of 35 ms for Subject-1 and 19 ms for Subject-2. These results suggest that the thermal effect is a measure of positive changes in the body for the regular use of the SHT.
