For shoulders and cervicals
This organic flax seeds heat pack is particularly suitable for warming cervicals, neck and shoulders. It provides a gentle and soothing warmth that relieves from pain and relaxes muscles.
Its long and narrow format allows it to be used also on other parts of the body. It has 5 compartments for a good distribution of flax seeds and contains about 1kg of flax seeds in total. It can store a lot of heat.
The heat pack gives heat for 30 to 45 minutes. The heat decreases as it exchanges with the body. In any case, it will always have enough heat to have the desired effect (relief of pain, warming, etc …). The heat duration may vary depending on the use. In the bed for example, protected by blankets, it will keep heat longer than if it is in the open air.
Flax seeds are oleaginous. The whole seed with the oil it contains accumulates heat or cold. The seeds do not move and do not change over time. The heat pack can therefore last for many years.
The comfort cover of the heat pack is 100% pure linen from Belarussia. The flax seed pack is in a 100% organic cotton fabric certified GOTS. Flax seeds are certified organic and of European origin.
Rheumatism, lumbago, osteoarthritis, neck pain, joint pain, abdominal pain, colds, bronchitis, hands or cold feet, relaxation, help with falling asleep.
Inflammatory problems, tendinitis, sprains, bruises, migraines.
