The heatable acuPads release heat slowly for up to 60 minutes of warmth, while the nibs massage the muscles and joints. The perfect tool to release tension from a stressful day or an especially challenging workout.
Benefits Pelvis and Lower Back Strain
Place one heatable acuPad under each buttock to alter the position of the pelvis, sit straighter, and significantly reduce lower back strain. Place under the lower back and on the lower belly to relieve menstrual discomfort.
Relax Your Central Nervous System

What are the acuPads for?
Relaxation, proper seating posture, sleep enhancement and lighter muscle and joint release work. They are also great for standing on to improve balance and posture and build core strength.
Why are there 2 acuPads?
Our research showed that if one acuPad was placed under the neck and another under the low back the entire spine would loosen and relax far more effectively than if only one was used.
How do I heat my acuPads?
1. Microwave on microwave safe plate for 50-60 seconds. acuBall WILL NOT feel hot when first removed – allow a minute or so for the heat to reach the surface. Heat will last for 1 hour. Cool to room temperature before reheating. NEVER exceed 60 seconds in microwave as ball will burst, becoming flat and useless!
2. Immerse in boiling water for 12 minutes. Towel dry.
Do I have to fill and empty the water inside the acuPad?
Absolutely not. The acuPads are filled to last the lifetime of the product and NEVER need to be filled or emptied. Just enjoyed!
I use a heating pad now. Why would I switch to an acuPad?
Two reasons – first – the acuPads’ patented pressure point design penetrates and separates tight muscles far more effectively than a heating pad which doesn’t have any penetration capability whatsoever. Secondly any electrical force field kept near the body – such as a heating pad – has the ability to negatively alter finely tuned cellular electro-magnetic processes. This is not recommended for optimum health and many health care professionals now discourage keeping any electrical apparatus near the body for prolonged periods because of this.
Are there any reasons not to use acuPads?
Yes. Bruises, fractures, cuts, infections, discolourations, advanced osteoporosis and brittle bones should never be acuBalled. Individuals who bruise easily as a result of medication should not acuBall. If you have pain, get professional health care advice to fully understand why you feel the way you do before acuBalling.
