^^ sounds like a load of crap. Wraps that heat up the skin are more likely to DECREASE blood flow to deeper structures like tendons by what's known as a "steal syndrome." This means that the heat dilates blood vessels in the SKIN superficially (causing redness) so that blood flow is shunted to the skin and away from the other structures.
