When using on the eyes it can be adjusted by pinching the middle so each side hangs at the ideal distance. You can further adjust the fit and softness of the pillow by twisting the thin middle section before placing it on your eyes.
The Mini was originally designed for the eyes but we have found it to be nurturing when placed on or below the clavicular joint, on the hyoid (Adam’s apple) and thymus gland, the forehead and on various places on the abdomen while lying face up. It also lends its gentle relaxing presence to the top of the shoulders while seated.
Healing for the wounded heart or soothing for the weary heart use this pillow on your heart, nape of the neck, throat, or anywhere else in need of soothing.
The unique heart shape lends itself to bilateral uses. We have a saying:”Two hearts are better than one” because we like to put one Heart on the top of each shoulder with the points facing outward.
This is our all purpose pillow. Originally designed to soothe those anxious gut feelings, the Round has a great comforting weight and presence helpful on all parts of the body wether to protect and soothe on top or support underneath. Try it under your wrists, knees, neck, ankles.
Lying face up stretch the pillow on your midline from the clavicular joint to the pubic bone. For spinal support stretch the pillow on a comfortable surface. Spread the seeds evenly or bunch them in specific areas for extra support. Lay down centering your spine on the pillow from your tailbone to the base of your cranium. The pillow can also be used as a wrap on any part of your body.
