Wheat Bags are so simple to use, Just Heat and Treat
Heat therapy, or “Thermotherapy” is one of the most effective forms of treatment. Heat therapy has been long associated with comfort and relaxation but it also goes a step further and can provide both pain relief and healing benefits for many types of muscle injuries. Heat therapy is also a great method of providing immediate relief from sore, tight and stiff muscles and joints.
HOW DOES IT WORK: Heat helps the blood vessels dilate which in turn increases the flow of oxygen rich blood to the affected area. This helps with better healing as well as quick regeneration of the damaged tissues. In addition this increased flow of blood also provides lots of nutrients, oxygen and proteins to the area, all of which are imperative to better healing. Heat acts as a pain reliever by successfully stimulating the specialized pain receptors within your skin. This decreases the frequency of pain messages that are sent to the brain.
Heat therapy also helps when it comes to relaxing and loosening the tissue surrounding the area being treated. The ligaments, tendons and muscles can then move more easily which further reduces the chances of injury. This is why using a Wheat Bag is regarded as being very effective at helping to relieve stiffness and improving flexibility in arthritic cases.
WHEN TO USE HEAT THERAPY: According to most therapists the first fifteen minutes in which heat is applied to the affected area is the most beneficial. Experts also recommend that heat therapy be used before any activity such as exercising which may cause pain. When heat is applied after an exercise session it can help prevent pain and future discomfort.
Heat can be used at almost any time there is stiffness, chronic (long standing) inflammation or pain. Some people suffering from arthritis have found that applying a Wheat Bag in the morning before they do anything else helps them reduce pain to the point where getting through the day is easier.
WHY ARE WHEAT BAGS SO EFFECTIVE? Wheat Bags easily mould to the area being treated. We have many styles and sizes that will cover all parts of the body. Wheat has great insulation qualities due to its cellular structure, which means it can absorb heat or cold evenly. It then distributes this stored heat or cold gradually and effectively.
Wheat Bags can also provide some relief from stiffness, inflammation and reduced flexibility. You need to keep in mind that heat therapy works best in the initial fifteen minutes it is applied. A Wheat Bag is a simple, handy and useful way to apply heat therapy to help relieve pain. Conveniently warm a Wheat Bag in a microwave then apply to the area of pain and benefit from the soothing warmth.

Customer review (from the manufacturers website):
This bag is so great. I’ve had a few “cheap” bags in the past from the markets but this one is so much better. The fabric is so soft and the pink is such a lovely colour. I also bought a bottle of lavender oil to keep that lovely smell up. Highly recommended. Also the service and delivery time was out of this world! Well done guys – one happy customer here.
