Wheat heat bags are cloth bags that contain natural wheat grains, they can be heated in the microwave and applied to the areas of the body that require pain relief. They are a natural source of pain relief and have no harmful effects, providing immediate relief to painful and sore, tight muscles or joints.
Heat helps to improve your blood flow. This increases the flow of blood rich oxygen to your tissues and assists with the healing and regeneration of damaged tissues. Heat also acts as a stimulant for large sensation receptors in our body. These receptors are connected to our brain and send signals back to the tissues that have been affected to reduce pain. Clinicians say that we can also use wheat heat therapy before stretching or exercising, to warm up tissues, thereby reducing the risk of injury.
