Wheat Bags are typically used to provide heat or cold therapy for muscle injuries and general aches and pains. While they cannot always fully treat the ailment in question (e.g. arthritis), they can serve to provide relief from pain and symptoms. Wheat Bags can even help relieve stress and mental tension.
How Do Wheat Bags Work?
Wheat Bags are prepared simply by placing in a microwave, or freezer, for a few minutes. Then you can apply them directly to your body where needed for soothing pain and ache relief. The plant-cell structure of the grains inside enables them to take on hot or cold temperatures quickly before steadily returning to normal when brought back to room temperature.
When the bag is warmed, the heat dilates blood vessels in the body. This aids the supply of oxygen to the area to help recovery and repair. It also stimulates sensory receptors in the brain, reducing the amount of pain you feel. When the bag is chilled, blood flow is reduced, causing reduction of inflammation and swelling.
Other benefits of Wheat Bags include muscle relaxation and increased motion range without the need for pharmacy treatments (e.g. painkillers), all at an inexpensive cost!
What Kind Of Wheat Bag Is Right For You?
Wheat Bags are available in a variety of different shapes and sizes; from standard rectangular body wraps to novelty animal-shaped warmers and they come in a wide variety of colours. Most varieties are best suited for use at home while at rest, but some can be strapped to the body allowing for portability and use while on the move.
To know which one is right for you, you need to know the area of the body that is causing a problem and how you intend to use the bag. For general use, a simple rectangular body wrap is good, while for severe or recurring cases it’s usually best to use something specific such as a back- or feet warmer.
All our wheat bags are safe, comfortable and cosy, making them perfect for children as well as adults. Some even contain lavender or are infused with other essential oils, creating a divine aromatic experience for the user on top of all that they already have to offer!
