At Core Physiotherapy and Pilates Studio, our heat pack of choice is the “Flex-Heat Lupin Hot Pack”. We love it so much because the pack is filled with Lupin which is a grain that is encapsulated in a pod, this means that there is less dust and reduced moisture collects in the pack. Lupin has been found to retain heat better than wheat so that the pack stays warm longer and therefore means you reduce the times that you put it in the microwave.
Localised Heat from a Lupin pack is great at increasing the blood flow to local muscle tissues as well as reducing muscle tension, joint stiffness and pain.
The Flex-Heat Lupin pack is available in a variety of colours. There’s no odour when it’s put into the microwave or the oven. It has a nice soft flexible cover, meaning that it can be placed straight from the microwave onto your skin. Because the Lupin hot pack is soft and flexible, whether you’re treating shoulders, necks, or backs, it’s versatile and comfortable for you to use.
Flex-Heat packs are 100% Australian Made from locally sourced materials and are approved by the TGA as a class 1 Medical Device. They can also be frozen in the freezer and used as a cold pack.
If you’d like to have a look at a Flex-Heat Lupin pack, you can pop into one of our practices and have a chat to one of our Physios. They’ll be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have. We look forward to seeing you soon.
