Since 2013, Heatywheaty has been providing physiotherapists and orthopedic surgeons with custom made wheat bags. These wheat bags are made to treat specific injuries as well as general aches and pains like post-operative pain and period pain.
Heatywheaty now has three of their most versatile sizes available to the public.
Heatywheaty wheat bags are made to last, using only locally produced, 100% cotton fabrics and high quality, specially treated wheat. Our wheat is a lot heavier than the more commonly used buck wheat and provides soothing pressure on application. It also has a far fainter smell which lessens with use.
They are both microwaveable and freezable making them a perfect choice for both hot and cold therapy.
Heatywheaty wheat bags are safe and easy to use. They are also economical and can stay warm next to your body throughout the night. For older children they are a great choice as you no longer need to worry about a hot water bottle leaking, or any kind of electric fault.
Some of our customers have come up with other creative uses for our wheat bags, such as to warm children’s’ beds and pajamas. They can even be used to treat colic. Simply hold a slightly warm wheat bag onto your baby’s tummy for short periods of time. The heat coupled with light massage can be very soothing. Please do not leave a wheat bag on your unattended baby as they are too heavy. Our wheat bags have also been used to keep food or drink warm or cool and to steady camera equipment.
Heatywheaty wheat bags are all still lovingly made by hand in Sophiatown, South Africa, where they first began. Our range of machine washable cotton covers come in three colours and are simple enough that they needn’t be hidden out of sight.
