Wheat bags are based on a traditional therapy dating back many years for aiding pain relief or increasing healing time after injuries. They work by applying direct heat to an area of the body encouraging the flow of blood to the area, which in turn speeds up recovery or helps reduce pain. All our wheat products use the same principle, whether they are used for arthritis pain in the hands or back pain. Heat therapy is a recognised form of natural pain relief, recommended by doctors, practitioners and therapists.
Using a microwaveable wheat bag is quick and easy. Just pop the heat pack in a microwave for 1-1.5 mins, depending on its wattage. They generally last for 30 mins, and once cool again, can be re heated as often as required.
Wheat bags are filled with wheat grown in the UK and the wheat is cleaned before use.
They are also known as bean bags or heat bags or even microwavable heat packs. Always follow instructions carefully and check for holes and if not perfect then do not use again.
It is important to purchase from a reputable source as the wheat can be infested, not thoroughly cleaned and extremely damp. They can also be very small and light and not really suitable for purpose, if size and source is not mentioned best to avoid.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
