1x Temperature Bag

Warmth has long been known for its ability to relieve tension, ease stress and soothe the mind and body. Lesser known but equally as effective, cold temperatures can be used to regulate one's emotions in the face of an emotion or mental health crisis. Changing one's body temperature signals a slowing of the heart rate and lowering of one's blood pressure which effectively lessens the intensity of the emotional experience.

These bags are handmade by I can so sew that and can be used both warm and cold.
*Enacting rapid changes in one's temperature, heartrate or blood pressure can be dangerous if your child has a heart condition or medical condition. Please consult your Dr. before using this product in the case of medical concerns*

*Bag contains actual beans which can be a choking hazard. Do not leave with small children unattended*
