Heatsheets meet Needle Naps!

by Sean Honea L.Ac

heat sheet 1

While the first day of Winter is still a week away, the remnants of the first snow fall, clinging to rooftops and trees, says otherwise.  For those that need a bit of help shaking off the winter chill, we are happy to introduce Heatsheets.  

Heatsheets are the quieter and more environmental friendly version of the space blankets.  Both are used by endurance athletes and in survival kits to stay warm because they can "reflect up to 90% of your body's radiant heat to form a warm envelope of air."  A  great place to keep them is in your car, so they are available for both emergencies and ready access for your needle naps at SCA.  

Why'd we switch?

Space blankets are made of mylar and is not recyclable.  Mylar is the same material that shiny balloons are made. That's fine for birthday parties, gift giving etc, but without the helium to make it fun, mylar sounds like a thunder storm in a quiet space. Heatsheets are quiet and recyclable.  They are made of "recyclable LDPE (low density polyethylene, a #4 recyclable plastic)," so you can reuse or recycle them anywhere #4 plastic is accepted.

If we have already giving you a space blanket, feel free to keep using it* or we will happily offer you a new heatsheet for your needle nap use.  Please re-use it by bringing your sheet to each appointment.  For sanitation purposes and also to keep our costs down, we will only be offering one blanket per person.  However, if you lose yours, we still have a few space blankets and paper drapes available to keep you warm.

*Heatsheets storage recommendations:  "Heatsheets can be refolded and stored in a zip-lock bag...in a cool dry place."
