Relieve pain & tension with the warmth of a moor heat pack
Heat pads with a moor filling have excellent properties for heat therapy. Natural moor has the ability to store heat for a very long time and to release it only slowly. This makes moor heating pads much more suitable as heat pillows than cherry stone pillows or grain pillows made of other materials, such as spelt grains. Moor heat packs are available in different shapes, such as a neck pad, back pad or also as a round moor heat pack.
Heat pads filled with moor can retain their warmth for up to several hours, thus providing you with a long-lasting treatment for pain and tensions. As moor is a natural product, the moor heat pack can become hard after about 2 years, depending on use and storage, and should be replaced.
Heat is an important and frequently used type of treatment in physiotherapy. It is used for almost all types of pain and non-inflammatory diseases. The use of heat, when applied correctly, has no side effects. Especially pain and tension in the neck, shoulder, back, lumbar spine, sciatica and menstrual pain can be relieved by a heat pad with moor filling.
The effect of heat on the body is an improvement in blood circulation, as well as an improved supply of oxygen and nutrients. The heat causes the blood capillaries to expand and open up. These are responsible for the blood being able to supply our body with oxygen and nutrients. The metabolism activation and improved blood circulation support the regeneration of pain and tension. Even on cold autumn and winter days, a moor heating pad offers you soothing, cosy warmth and relaxation.

How do I heat a moor heating pad correctly?
For durability and a pleasant treatment, we recommend that you observe the following instructions for heating the moor heat pack.
Warming the moor heating pad in the microwave
The power level of the microwave should not exceed 600 watts. Place the moor compress in the microwave and heat it at a maximum of 600 watts for about 1-2 minutes. Knead the heat pad properly and turn it over to the other side. Now heat the moor heat pack for another 1-2 minutes.
If the desired temperature is not yet reached, repeat the process in 30-second intervals until your desired temperature is reached. Depending on the size of the moor heat pad, you may need to bend it for heating in the microwave. Our round moor heat pack was specially designed in terms of size for bend-free heating in the microwave.
Warming the moor heat pack in a water bath
The water must not boil and the water bath should have a maximum temperature of 80 degrees Celsius! Place the moor heating pad in the hot water and allow it to warm up for 5-10 minutes. Knead the moor compress well afterwards. If the desired temperature has not yet been reached, place the heat pad in the water bath at 60-second intervals until your desired temperature is reached.
Warming the moor heat pack in the oven
Some of our customers have told us that they have heated the moor heating pad in the oven and this has worked. However, we recommend that you gently heat the heat pads either in the microwave or in a water bath to make the most of the longevity and properties of moor pads.
The warming of the moor pad can vary depending on the device used. After heating, we recommend that you carefully test with the back of your hand whether the moor heating pad has the desired temperature to avoid burns.
We recommend that you use a protective cover! The mud pads are NOT intended for internal use.
Moor products are natural products which may differ slightly in colour from the photo. axion also offers you special moor pillows for the neck and lumbar spine including a cotton cover.

What is heat therapy with a moor heating pad suitable for?
Heat is mainly used for muscular tension and all kinds of pain that are not caused by inflammation. The heat dilates the vessels, which increases blood circulation and the supply of nutrients and oxygen and thus promotes regeneration. A moor heating pad is ideal for heat therapy and also as a soothing support on cold autumn and winter days. Please also note the contraindications for which you should not use warm moor heat packs (or in consultation with your doctor).
A moor pillow is suitable for heat therapy for the following applications:
- - Muscle tension
- - Back pain
- - Neck pain & neck tension
- - Lumbago
- - Sciatica
- - Stomach and kidney pain
- - Colds
- - Menstrual cramps
Contraindications to heat therapy:
- - Cardiovascular complaints
- - Infections with fever
- - Injuries and inflammations (cold is suitable for these)
- - Untreated tumours
- - Circulatory disorders such as varicose veins or thrombosis
- - High blood pressure
- - Hypersensitivity to heat
- - Open wounds
Why use moor as a filling for heating pads?
Heating pads that store and release heat have been used for a very long time. Cherry stone pillows, for example, are popular as a homemade gift. The filling of grain pillows often consists of cherry stones, linseed, spelt grain or other types of grains. The grains store heat for a certain period of time and then release it to the applied area. You can also achieve a similar principle with a hot water bottle, which you can also buy from axion with covers in various patterns.
The natural moor used in our heat pads has a much better heat storage capacity than, for example, the cherry stone pillows. This allows you to significantly increase the duration of use in comparison. Due to the moist and compact mass of the moor pillow, the stored heat is also released more evenly, which makes the application more soothing and effective. Cold applications are also possible with the moor pad.
What is the difference between moor and fango in heat therapy?
When it comes to the topic of heat therapy, you have probably heard the terms natural moor and fango more than once. Many do not know the differences and use it as a synonym. What they have in common, however, is a mud-like consistency and that they are used for heat applications, e.g. for back pain. Unlike hot water bottles, the filling for heating pads is not made of water, but of moor or other natural products such as fango.
Fango is extracted from volcanic rock and traditionally comes from Italy. The volcanic rock is then processed together with thermal water and other additives to form a mud-like mass, which is then used in mud pads or mud packs. Fango is characterised by a variety of minerals and trace elements, such as clay, silicic acid, potassium, etc.
Natural moor comes from moor wetlands and is formed from peat. The areas where it is extracted vary, but the peat often comes from Germany. Natural moor is characterised by its good heat storage capacity and contains many humic acids and other minerals, which are said to have positive properties for the body. In the case of moor packs, these healing moors are passed on to the skin through direct contact and exposure. In the case of moor heating pads or compresses, no minerals are drawn from the moor into the skin due to the plastic cover. Nevertheless, they provide excellent relaxation and relief from complaints, e.g. on the back.
Cold therapy with moor pads
The properties of natural moor are suitable not only for heat therapy but also for cold therapy. For this, you only need to put the moor pad in the refrigerator for several hours. We advise you not to cool the moor pad in the freezer so that the surface remains intact and the plastic cover does not burst.
A moor heat pad is suitable for cold therapy for the following applications:
- - Bruises
- - Sprains
- - Bruises
- - Inflammatory joint pain
- - Swellings
Contraindications to cold treatments:
- - Open wounds
- - Intolerance to cold
- - Acute respiratory diseases
- - Alcohol addiction
- - Treatment with psychotropic drugs
