Heat lowers blood pressure!!! Trust me!! You got a couple of people answering with raising of the blood pressure. Heat vasodilates your peripheral vessels, thus pressure goes down. Cold vasoconstricts your peripheral vessels which raises the blood pressure. It's safe to use it, but don't stay for prolonged hours, especially with alcohol or drugs.
