Snuggle down and enjoy the relaxing benefits of one of our superb heat pads. Easy to use, comfortable and effective, Zhu Zhu’s wheat-filled packs are the natural way to soothe aches and pains.
Why use a heat pad?
Our heat pads come in a range of different styles and designs to make it easy to apply soothing warmth to different parts of the body. Multiuse pads are versatile enough to be used anywhere, but we also make wraparound wheat packs specifically to target the lower back, knees and legs.
The pads contain small grains of wheat that store heat effectively when microwaved and release their warmth over a long period to create a soothing effect on the skin, muscles and joints. Velcro straps hold the pads in place for ease of use.
Because the wheat grains follow the body’s contours, they create a comfortable, consistent source of heat that provides therapeutic benefits. It’s also simpler and safer than a traditional water-filled bottle.
What’s the science behind heat pads?
Heat therapy is proven to alleviate the painful symptoms of chronic and acute conditions such as rheumatism, arthritis, migraines, bruising, sports injuries, menstrual cramps, stress and tension by increasing blood flow to the area, reducing pain and inflammation and promoting healing.

Our pads can be applied directly to the painful area straight from the microwave – or from the freezer to reduce swelling immediately after a strain or injury. They can be reheated many times without losing their effectiveness, so you won’t have to keep replacing them – though you might want a couple of different styles to target specific areas.
