The Long Pillow (Unfilled)
Size: 24″ x 4-1/2” (60 x 12 cm)
For midline support, the Long can be placed over your chest and belly.
For spinal support, lie on your back on top of the Long. Spread the seeds evenly or bunch them in specific areas for extra support. Center your spine on the pillow from your tailbone to the base of your cranium.
The Long can also be used as a wrap on any part of your body.
Includes: Red removable cover, Black inner bag for filler, and instructions for seed filling and sewing closed.
THIS PILLOW HAS NO FILLING. YOU MUST SUPPLY THE FILLER AND SEW THE PRODUCT CLOSED.
We recommend 1110 grams (6 cups or 1410-milliliter) Organic Flaxseed (Linseed) for the Long Pillow.
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.
