Heat Pack/Wheat Bag - where to buy?

I've searched the forums to no avail - possibly because I'm not sure what they're called elsewhere - but does anyone know where I could buy one of these? The little pillow things filled with wheat that you heat in the microwave for sore necks/backs etc.

Is there a special name for them in German/Swiss German?

Re: Heat Pack/Wheat Bag - where to buy?

They are called Weizenkissen, Dinkelkissen (depending on the grain used) or simply Körnerkissen.

One can usually find them at an Apotheke - but sometimes also at Tchibo, Coop, Migros, or Manor or a Reformhaus. Check Amazon as well.

ETA:

I *think* I've heard them called Wärmekissen as well - but be sure to specify that you mean grain-filled.

Many thanks - very much appreciated.

I'm trying my best to get out there and find things out myself as much as I can, but I have to admit that sometimes it all gets a bit overwhelming and I just need to ask someone.
