Instructions for the Tension Relief Wrap

The Tension Relief Wrap can be used to apply moist or dry heat to relieve tension and muscle aches in the neck and shoulder area. Cold applications will help to reduce pain and swelling.

Heating Instructions

Because all microwaves have different power settings, do not leave unattended. Do not heat on a stovetop, toaster oven or conventional oven. Do not overheat. Heat in a clean microwave for 1 minute on medium setting. If more heat is desired, shake gently and refold in opposite direction to avoid scorching; and reheat at 30-second intervals only. Test temperature before use.

  • Use only with adult supervision.
  • Not for children under 3 years old.
  • Important: Do not use on sensitive skin.
  • People suffering from nerve damage, circulation problems or paralysis should use this product only as directed by a physician.

Moist Heat: Wrap should feel damp when heated; this is beneficial moist heat. Moist heat penetrates muscles more deeply than dry heat and increases circulation in the area. For more moisture and deeper penetration, remove outer cover, then mist the insert with water and place it in the microwave following the heating instructions, above.

Cooling: A cold wrap helps reduce pain and swelling. Place the entire wrap in a plastic bag then into a freezer for one to two hours before using.

Washing Instructions

Remove the grain-filled insert; wash the outer cover only. Machine-wash the cover in cold water on gentle cycle. Hang to dry. Do not wash the insert. Spot-clean insert with a damp cloth as needed.
