Hot Cherry Pillows or Weighted Blankets – Which Would You Choose?

We know you eagerly await Spring tidings, but baby, it’s still cold outside! And we have just what you need to beat the cold and stay warm and cozy – Hot Cherry Pillows. We promise our pillows won’t weigh you down, unlike weighted blankets. If the first thing that comes to mind in the morning after getting out of bed is, “My feet and ankles hurt,” it is probably time to look for a substitute for your weighted blanket.

The popularity of weighted blankets has much to do with how they help stimulate sleep and provide comfort and warmth. However, the weight itself may be bad news if you pick a too-heavy blanket to sleep under. Good news – you can enjoy the warmth and coziness that a weighted blanket imparts without spending hours finding the right blanket for your body weight. Our Hot Cherry Pillows, filled with natural cherry pits, are lightweight, exude a sense of calmness, and help you get a good night’s sleep. They are like a weighted blanket, minus the weighing down your toes part!

Weighted Blanket – Is It All Boon?

Weighted blankets are helpful in improving sleep quality by providing warmth and comfort. It also helps reduce restlessness and anxiety – deep touch pressure releases happy hormones.

Now, let’s look at the other side of the coin.

Imagine returning home after a hectic day at work. All you want to do is spring into your bed and sleep like a baby. But falling asleep under a 10-12 pound blanket seems like a task in itself! If you have respiratory conditions like sleep apnea and asthma, weighted blankets are a big NO as they may aggravate the condition. These blankets are not recommended for babies and pose a risk of suffocation.

Hot Cherry Pillows: Elevate Your Clients’ Spa Experience with Moist Heat Therapy


The idea of applying heat to affected areas when you feel any pain or discomfort isn’t something new. In fact, heat therapy can be traced back thousands of years to the ancient Greeks and Egyptians who used the sun’s rays for the purpose. Today, heat therapy, as well as cold therapy are considered some of the most effective ways to alleviate muscle soreness, joint pain, and so on, and everyone, regardless of age or fitness level can benefit from them. And Hot Cherry Pillows is a perfect way to do that.

Filled with clean, dried cherry pits, Hot Cherry Pillows, when heated, deliver moist penetrating heat, which can be incredibly soothing on tight muscles or tummy aches.

Today, spas are beginning to discover the many amazing benefits of Hot Cherry Pillows in their treatment rooms as well as their boutiques and retail sections. When they use the pillows on their clients, the response is usually an invigorating “Aah! That feels so good! What is that wonderful weight and warmth?” Then the massage therapists have the opportunity to promote Hot Cherry Pillows.

There are many reasons why spas should use and promote Hot Cherry Pillows.

  • Moist heat penetrates deeper into the tissues, offering more relief than dry heat.
  • Moist heat relaxes tight, sore muscles.
  • Moist heat improves circulation.
  • Moist heat increases the efficacy of the massage treatment.

In spas, estheticians can sell multiple expensive skin care products, but massage therapists can't sell hot towels. They can, however, sell Hot Cherry Pillows.

Hot cherry pit-filled pillows act like weighted blankets, relaxing and releasing tight muscles, making the therapist's work easier. We offer them in a variety of fabrics and sizes, from eye pillows to body pillows. Choose from natural-dyed 100% cotton denim or our plush maraschino ultra-suede. That means that there’s a size and design that’s perfect for everybody.

Used on shoulders, lower back, along the length of the spine or legs, and wrapped around cold feet, our pillows are truly an asset to the massage practice, and having the client continue relaxing their muscles when they get home supports their work. Eye pillows can be used to relieve sinus congestion or block out light. You can use them hot, cold, or at room temperature.

Spas find that placing a warm neck wrap around the shoulders of a waiting customer relaxes them and helps them feel pampered even before the treatment begins. Plus, it gives them sufficient time to decide if they want to purchase it while they're still in the waiting room.

Even better than the benefits of using Hot Cherry Pillows in the spa is the ease of caring for them. The entire pillow is machine washable and dryable, follow instructions carefully. You can use it directly on the skin and then toss it in the laundry. You can also heat them in microwaves or hot towel warmers. They’re quite durable and with proper care, will providing you with years of service.  Spa directors are happy because there is little to no training involved, once the proper heating technique is learned, Hot Cherry Pillows will become your spa’s favorite tools, and your client’s favorite gifts.
