where can I buy a moist electric heating pad in Zurich?

We just came here a few days ago from the U.S., and I had to leave my beloved moist electric heating pad, which I need from time to time for a special use, behind because it was a 120V. Where can I buy one in Zurich? Or do I have to shop online? The only one I found on amazon.de doesn't seem to ship to Switzerland.

Thank you SO MUCH for helping!

I would try asking at an Apotheke. I know I saw some non-electric hot water heating pads at an Apotheke the other day, and maybe they also have the electric ones.

So, in case anyone happens to wonder about the same thing... Apothekes most likely don't have them. I asked at the big Apotheke near the main station. One lady there told me to go to this place called Sanitat Geschaft <one more word i can't remember>. It is opposite the big shop called Modessa, on Bahnholfstrasse (sp?) (sorry, I haven't been here that long). I did find electric heating pads there. However, I ended up ordering it form amazon.co.uk because it's much cheaper. (Amazon.de has it at an even lower price - much lower - but it can't ship to my address in Zurich ).

It is just off of Banhofstrasse in Zurich.

Re: where can I buy a moist electric heating pad in Zurich?

You may find that the prices are breathtakingly expensive. I would google around to find something from elsewhere in Europe. Amazon.fr sometimes has cheaper stuff than Amazon.de and seem to ship things to Switzerland that Amazon.de won't. Also try the UK. Most places won't ship electrical stuff but a few years back I bought an electric blanket (I very decadently use it to warm my bed in the winter - pure luxury) from there that they shipped directly to me. It saved me literally over a hundred francs.

Is it like a hydroculator? My parents used to have one when I was a kid. It was the best thing for a stiff neck. Glad you found something that works.
