Heat Wraps offer several significant advantages that make them an effective choice for managing low back pain and promoting recovery.
1. Promotes Movement and Activity
Heat Wraps allow individuals to stay active and mobile due to their lightweight and flexible design, aligning with the principles of physiotherapy to encourage movement and exercise for better recovery from low back pain.
2. Convenient Application
FlexEze Heat Wraps provide the convenience of easy removal and reapplication without disrupting heat production, offering a practical solution for uninterrupted relief when needed.
3. Continuous, Long-Lasting Heat
Unlike other heat delivery methods such as wheat bags, which provide high temperatures for a shorter duration and require constant reheating, Heat Wraps deliver a continuous, low level of heat above 40 degrees Celsius for up to 12 hours, ensuring sustained relief without the need for frequent reheating.
4. Mobility and Comfort
The lightweight and discreet design of Heat Wraps make them practical for individuals with busy lifestyles, allowing them to be worn under clothing while on the move, unlike other heat products that are less practical for use during daily activities.
5. First-line treatment
FlexEze Heat Wraps have emerged as a reliable solution in the management of acute low back pain.

The unique benefits of Heat Wraps make them a preferred choice for those seeking effective, convenient, and mobile low back pain relief.
Heat therapy is a simple yet effective method for managing low back pain. By applying heat to the affected area, you can experience a range of benefits that contribute to your overall comfort and mobility. Here's how it works:
Improved Blood Flow:
Heat promotes increased blood circulation to the targeted area, delivering essential nutrients and oxygen to help the muscles heal and reduce pain.
Applying heat helps relax tense muscles, thereby enhancing your ability to move more freely and comfortably.

FlexEze Heat Wraps contain iron powder, salt, charcoal, and mineral vermiculite. When exposed to air, these eco-friendly ingredients begin to heat by oxidising iron powder to release heat called an exothermic reaction.
FlexEze is designed to provide continuous low level heat for up to 12 hours they are designed as single use and will go cold and harden after this time.
Hot Tip: If you only need to use your FlexEze heat patch for a couple of hours you can wrap it in cling wrap or seal in a zip-lock bag to stop the heat process. The patches work by reacting with oxygen, so basically no if you stop the oxygen you stop the heat. It can then be reused for later by exposing once again to air.
Do not open until ready to use.
Use by best efore date.
Store in a cool, dry place.
Dispose of product thoughtfully as patch ingredients are Eco-friendly and contents of the patch can be emptied into soil, where it acts as a soil conditioner. Dispose of outer sleeve in household waste.
