Aquatic Therapy

Cast aside your hot water bottle and bag of frozen peas for good. Inspired by the fun and tranquility of coastal Maine, artist Lisa Assenza has created the brightly colored Fishbellies, designed to sooth minor aches and pains. Using "corn bag therapy," this fun, fish-shaped wrap is made from cotton and filled with clean corn kernels, which will not pop when heated. Fishbellies can be microwaved to sooth and relieve sore muscles or frozen to apply on minor areas of swelling. Cheery and useful, these chipper little helpers are great for children or long days on the beach. Handmade in the USA.

      What do you get active parents in their 70's who have everything? You buy them this! The quality is amazing, the detailing beautiful and it actually works for those aches and pains. Its interesting enough that kids like to use it, too. My mother-in-law loves it and all of her friends want one, too.

        I'm pretty active and sometimes need targeted heat or ice on hard to reach/odd places. This product perfectly sits on my shoulders or across my upper back. It's quite beautifully made as well - it really helps me unwind/relax after a stressful day or recover after an injury.

            This was a birthday gift for my mom, who's also a young-ish grandma. She loved the size and gorgeous colors. Her granddaughter also loved it and played with it non-stop during the birthday party. It's a fun, stylish, and clearly well-made piece. A wonderful gift!

            I'm giving this as a gift to my sister who is a very stylish, active and creative person. I saw the Fishbelly hot/cold pack in a catalog and thought of her immediately. She is an athletic person who can use a hot/cold pack not to mention it is the most unique one I've ever seen. I know she will love the quirky style. I want one for myself.

              This product is amazing!! I use it after a long stressful day on my shoulders and the heat feels great. In addition, it stays hot for a long time. It also is great to put in the freezer for aches and pains after working out, and it is so darn cute! If you have never tried a corn bag, you must try this one!

                  I bought a FishBellies for myself and one for my mom knowing she loved warmth on her shoulders. Other "bags" are homemade and look it,,, not these. My hubby calls mine my "boyfriend" as I stick it in the microwave for some pampering while reading in bed. Love them!

                    I own two fishbellies and love to heat them up together. I place one on my shoulders and one on my lower back. Perfect way to soothe my tired muscles after a rough day of teaching. I also keep them on while creating art, not only do they feel great, the bright colors inspire my work.
