This Lower Back Wrap measures 29" long by 8" wide and is filled with 2 pounds of Canadian-grown flaxseed. It has 4 horizontal tubes separated into 5 sections to shape around your body easier and so the flaxseed won't fall to the bottom when you're wearing it.
In order to hold it in place, we attached two stretch-velcro straps. They are 23.5" long and will stretch up to 36", making the wrap up to 65" long! If the straps are too long, you can cut them shorter if you'd prefer.
This back wrap is so versatile, you can wear it as shown in the images, or wear it like a backpack, or diagonally across your back like a sling bag.
Heat it up in the microwave! Put the Therapy Wrap on a microwave safe plate and heat for 30-60 seconds at a time for larger wraps.. After each heating interval, take the wrap out and shake it up to shift the flaxseed around inside in order to evenly distribute the heat. Don't overheat it as you can scorch the seeds, burn your skin or start a fire. Don't leave it unattended in the microwave. Check the temperature often while heating and if it's too hot, let it cool down before using it. Heating in the oven is not recommended (as in, don't do it).
Cool it in the freezer! Need a cool pad? Keep your Therapy Wrap in the freezer until you're ready to go. You can put this frozen wrap directly on your skin, unlike that bag of peas. It stays nice and flexible even when frozen. Feel free to transfer direct from the freezer to the microwave, just adjust the microwaving times accordingly.
Flaxseed contains about 42% oil, so when you heat the back wrap, you're heating the oils inside it. Other products are filled with grains, like oat, which work great but when you heat them, you're heating the water in the grain and that can dry them out. Flaxseed lasts a lot longer and it feels softer.
* Fabric pattern may not be exactly as shown. Our supplier frequently updates their pattern selection and as a result the patterns we can offer changes. We do our best to keep the swatch images up to date on the website but sometimes we can get behind. If the pattern that you order is no longer available, we will contact you via phone or email to let you know what options are available.
The therapy wraps come with no scent added and flaxseed has its own natural scent. If you would like to enhance your soothing therapeutic experience, add on an essential oil spray when checking out. For best results, after heating the flax therapy wrap in the microwave, give it a couple squirts of aromtherapy spray.

This product is not washable. If you get it wet, the flax seeds will get mushy and likely not dry out. You'll need to toss it and buy a new one.
