Collection: The headache Cap

The Headache Cap is a compression fitting and is designed to help ease the strain of headaches, migraines, facial strain, anxiety and even hangovers.

The cap is simple to use and reusable. The material is designed to stretch over your head and eyes, blocking out all light and can be either used for 360 degree of cold or hot compression. They are made from nontoxic medical grade liquid gel and resist from tearing and breaking. 

The caps are extremally reliable and easy to use.

Why is compression good for headaches?

Cold compression benefits:

Cold compression is known to reduce your blood flow, in return this helps supports the body with easing inflammation.

The cold compress also constricts blood vessels and helps reduce the neurotransmission to the brain. 

Many studies made have shown that people who suffer from migraines benefit from cold compression.

Hot compression benefits 

Most studies indicate that cold compression is more effective, however, some people respond better to heat. The heat works by stimulating the nerve endings called thermoreceptors, which may block the pain signals from that area to the brain. 

It also works the opposite effect to cold compression. It increases the blood flow, which increases oxygen, proteins, and other nutrients to the area in pain.

Hot and Cold compression together

If you are able to, we recommend owning two individual caps for the purpose of  rotating between hot and cold compression immediately after each other. The application of hot and cold compresses can increase blood circulations that carry the oxygen. The hot and cold sensation relaxes the nerves that can trigger the pain signal to the brain.

How to use

cold compression

Place the gel pack in the refrigerator or freezer (or even your esky if you are camping!) We recommend at least 10 minutes in the freezer (longer is better). Once the cap is cold, simply place it on to wear.

Hot compression

The product can be heated in the microwave on a medium-low setting for 1-2 minutes. Please let it sit to cool to your desired and comfortable temperature before placing on you head.

Extra non realted headache benefits

Even when you don't have a headache, try it out for the ultimate relaxation. The Cap can be used when you have anxiety as the weight puts your autonomic nervous system into "rest mode" reducing  known symptoms of anxiety.
