Product Details

This is a pillow set that includes a removable red cover and an internal black bag only. You must supply the filler material. Use clean, food-grade* organic golden flaxseed (Linseed). Your included instruction sheet will show you how to fill them, how much to fill them with, and how to sew them closed.

* The use of any other filler will affect the quality of your experience, heating times, product life, and safety.

Disclaimer. The quality of your experience and the safety of your therapeutic pillow depends on the filler used. As we do not have control of the filling material, quality, and amount of the filler used we disclaim responsibility for the pillows in case of allergic reactions, potential fires, damage to the outer cover and inner bag, and any damage resulting from the use of the pillows. And any modification to the heating times indicated for each pillow.

Nurture To Heal™ Therapeutic Pillows evolved out of our desire to create a tool that would support and enhance somatic awareness. We wanted to develop a therapeutic comfort tool for self-regulation and self-care that NeuroAffective Touch® practitioners could use in their practice, on themselves, and give to their clients. The outcome has exceeded our hopes.

Professional psychotherapists, bodyworkers, and everyone who can benefit from tender self-care and who struggles with nervous system regulation have found them useful.

All Nurture To Heal™ Therapeutic Pillows are made of luxurious deep red stretch velvet. Filled with organic flax seeds, they are soft and malleable. They can be warmed in the microwave or cooled in the freezer. Pleasingly tactile and sensuous, the pillows are a valuable resource to support self-regulation, encourage soothing self-care, and heighten body awareness. We believe that once you use them and discover the special effects of each shape, you will find that you can’t be without your collection of pillows. 

Warming your Pillow

  • Warm in a microwave
  • Do NOT heat in a conventional oven or if wet
  • Make sure your microwave is clean to prevent food stains on your pillow
  • Use standard microwave precautions

Heating times are approximate depending on the strength of your microwave

  • Mini: 30 seconds
  • Heart: 1 minute
  • Round and Brick: 2 minutes
  • Long and Long Segmented: 2.5 minutes

Cooling your Pillow

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


  • If any medical conditions exist, use caution or check with your doctor before use.
  • Do not use with infants and young children without supervision.
  • If using flaxseed, do not leave it in a moist environment for an extended period of time as flax seeds may sprout!
  • If using flaxseed, do not leave pillows unattended around animals such as birds and chickens who love seeds!
