The WheatyBags Upper Neck & Back Pain Microwave Heat Pack provides relief for neck and shoulder pain and has a unique T-shaped design that can wrap around the neck, shoulder and upper back providing comforting pain relief.

During the design and testing process, we found that this heat pack was able to effectively target the upper neck and back area due to its large surface area and elongated design. This wheat bag sits securely on the upper back regardless of whether you're lying down or seated upright. This allows you to fold the two flaps inwards to target those hard to reach areas across the neck.

This heat pack is filled with triple screen cleaned, UK-grown wheat that is also CE-approved. We've taken care to seam the wheat bag into six separate compartments, which keeps the filling evenly distributed. This improves heat retention and ensures your heat pack stays warm for the necessary amount of time.

Your safety is crucially important to us here at WheatyBags. As a leading UK manufacturer of microwave heat packs for pain relief, our wheat bags have undergone the necessary testing to ensure compliancy with British Safety Standards (BS8433).

Your bag can be customised to your liking via an assortment of premium quality fabric and colour options. They can also be personalised with a name or message of your choice making them the perfect gift for a loved one who is suffering from neck and shoulder pain. For those that enjoy the therapeutic benefits of lavender, we also offer a gorgeous Provence lavender option.

Please see the "Order" tab for a full list of optional extras, including a removable cover option and super saver multi-buy offers.

How long should the heat pack be put into the microwave or chill in the freezer?

Please click on the “Instructions” tab online or the labelling on the product on arrival.

Is it normal that my heat pack feels damp when microwaving?

When you first microwave the heat pack the contents inside will feel damp. This will subside after a few heating cycles and is quite normal. Do not overheat the wheat bag to attempt to dry it out.

What happens if I microwave the heat pack for too long or it burns?

Please be very careful not to overheat the heat pack. If overheated they can catch fire which is very dangerous. Overheating can be caused by food or contamination from your microwave so it is important that the microwave is clean before you heat the product.

If overheating occurs, remove from the microwave and put in a safe place while it cools. Do not use again until the product has returned to room temperature. If it is giving off a burnt smell, or has small burn marks on the fabric, you have overheated the product. Please throw away the heat pack being careful that the product is not burning. A replacement product would then have to be purchased.

Can I wash my Heat Pack?

Do not place the full heat pack in the washing machine or get the contents wet as it can damage the product. It is advised that you surface clean with a damp cloth or sponge to clean the product. If the product becomes wet then it needs to be dried out before the wheat inside germinates and we suggest placing the product in a warm room to dry at room temperature. If the wheat inside does germinate then we do not recommend that you use the wheat bag.

Can I purchase removable covers that can be washed for my heat pack?

On some of our products you will see the option to purchase a removeable cover for cleaning. If this is shown as an option then this cover is removable from the main heat pack and can be washed with like colours in the washing machine or by hand at a low temperature of 30 to 40 degrees.

Is it possible to warm the heat pack other than the microwave?

No. Our heat packs are designed to be exclusively heated in a microwave.

How do I fit a larger heat pack in my small microwave?

Some of our products are larger when flat than the size of smaller microwaves. It is ok to “scrunch” up the heat pack lightly to fit into the microwave but is important not to fold the pack in half tightly as this can create hot spots when heating.

Are these heat packs suitable for young children?

No. We do not recommend that heat packs are given the very young children under the age of 3 years old. Adult supervision should always be provided and should only be heated by an adult with great care.

    A natural comforting product It is practical, microwaveable, easy to use repeatedly, comforting when you need it and reassuring as a stand by.

    NECK AND SHOULDER MUSCLE RELEASE A quality British product in smart Navy blue. Unlike cheap wheat bags, this is divided into sections which keep the wheat spread out evenly. Wonderful heat release for tight neck and shoulder muscles, particularly before massage and stretching. A new friend in my life!

    Does what it says on the tin Firstly, I was impressed with the ease of ordering, the speed of despatch and ongoing communication keeping me advised of progress. The product arrived exactly as described and has worked a treat, it fits well and the warmth is very comforting. However (sorry) I really dislike the wheaty smell (I know, who would have thought, a what's bag smells of wheat). If you like the smell of lavender go for that option, I just do n to like that particular smell. Will I continue to use it? Absolutely, it is great, just dislike the smell.

    The best wheaty bag ever This product has been life changing for me. It's absolutely amazing. It keeps its heat for longer then any other wheat bag I have hadand it smells good too. After having bad whiplash this has helped me no end. The customer service is also something to shout out about. What fantastic friendly professional people. I will never buy one from anywhere else but here.

    Excellent product! I'm really happy with my T-shaped heat pack. It's exactly the right shape and size. It really eases the muscles prior to stretching exercises to relieve neck, back and shoulder pain.

    Perfect gift! My partner suffers with a bad back and neck so I purchased a neck and back wheat bag. He said it is the best he has ever had and really helps with his aches after a hard day. I had it personalised to add a little bit extra to his gift! Highly recommended. I also purchased one too and used the special offer

    good product After purchasing a magnetic neck brace from a different company which was a total waste of my money, I'm so impressed with my wheat bag. It's really soothing and relaxing. I can feel my shoulders un winding when using it.

    Upper neck and back T shape wheat bag I have had several wheat bags from you and they are very well made .This is the 1st of this particular shape and I would say the only downside is the neck is slightly too short and if I am wearing a jacket ( I use the wheat bag when working on the computer in the office )it tends to not reach around far enough and the weight in the back makes it slide down constantly.

    Lavender scented wheat bag scores! I bought my wife a lavender scented wheatbag as a surprise because she had been suffering from some aches & pains. She loves it! Heats it up and takes it to bed. Been helping her neck and shoulder pain! Peace at last!

    Great shaped bean bags. I bought the 'T' shaped bean bag and I have found it to be very easy to use and very comforting for a stiff neck. The lavender smell is also very pleasant.

    Fabulous Design! Bought for my mum who suffers with joint pain, in particular neck n shoulders. The bag sits perfectly when sitting (armchair/sofa) without being too heavy or bulky. The heat is just right and the stitching keeps the filling in place. Would highly recommend :)

    Fantasic for neck and back pain! Absolutely love this product, excellent size for easing aches and pains in the neck and back.
    29th November 2016 by Jess
    beautifully made I'm very pleased to have found this wheat bag. I suffer from neck and shlder pain and warmth really helps to take the edge off, but the usual wheat bag you find is annoying, because the grains fall to the end of the bag. My new wheat bag is so comfortable, the warm wheat grains are held in place, and the shape of the bag covers the neck AND shoulders. I would recommend to anyone. It's very well made, and it's a great comfort.

    A brilliant wheaty Bag purchase After being in a serious car accident last year I am still having problems from my neck, shoulders and upper back. My physiotherapist suggested a Wheaty bag and after using this product for a couple of weeks, my symptoms are much better. When using the Wheaty bag which covers my neck, shoulders and down my back, I am able to do my exercises much easier and the heat gives me comfort at the same time. It is easy to use only taking 2 minutes in the microwave and the heat generates for at least an hour before needing to heat again. I would recommend this product to anyone who needs relief with heat on any symptoms.

    Excellent for an achy back/neck This was recommended to me by a massage therapist as I have a very stiff upper back. The wheaty bag is a wonderful way of easing the ache away.
    22nd October 2016 by Claire F
    Excellent Buy Wheaty T Bag is fab, covers the areas I need being looked after, ie: neck area and upper back, comfortable and sits well. Very happy.
