Use and Care Instructions

How to Use Your Pillows

Mini

Twist in the middle to adjust the fit and softness of the pillow. The MINI was originally designed for the eyes. But, we have found it to be nurturing when placed on or below the clavicular joint, the hyoid (Adam’s apple), thymus gland, and forehead.


Heart

To heal a wounded heart of soothe a weary heart, the HEART is a trusted friend. Wonderful on your chest, on the nape of the neck, throat, or anywhere in need of calming comfort.

 

Round

This is our all purpose pillow. Originally designed to calm those anxious gut feelings, the
ROUND has a great comforting weight and presence which is helpful on all parts of the body whether to protect and soothe when used on top or support underneath. Try it under your wrists, knees, neck, ankles.

Long and Long Segmented

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 while  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.

The BRICK is denser and heavier than the other pillows. Its compact size makes it a versatile pillow.

Cooling Your Therapeutic Pillow

Place your pillow in the freezer in a sealed plastic bag or container to keep free of  moisture. Remove excess air before sealing. Leave as long as needed to cool. You can also store your Therapeutic Pillow long-term in the freezer if you like to use it cold. Pillows will remain pliable and soft when cold.
