TrapWrap Review – Migraine Prevention
As a migraine sufferer and chronic ‘cold person,’ I jumped at the opportunity to review this portable heating device. I’ve heard this referred to as a “must-have winter accessory,” but I can see myself wearing this year-round. Especially because I found it exceptionally successful with migraine prevention.

Currently it’s winter here in Chicago, so I’m constantly catching a chill. I’m one of those people that is always cold. I swear I should have been an iguana. I would do very well basking on a rock in direct sunlight all day. Sometimes I actually think I must be cold-blooded. When I catch a chill, my body doesn’t recover at all without some sort of external heat source–a hot shower, heating blanket, or in most cases, Chad’s body heat. I tackle him all the time just to get warm.
Not only is being cold uncomfortable, but it causes my entire body to tense up. It’s an awful feeling. Plus, my migraines are usually caused by tension in my shoulders so this is a terrible situation. But, with the TrapWrap, I can warm up, relieve all that tension, and avoid catching that chill altogether.
The TrapWrap is very soft, durable, portable, rechargeable, and lasts 3-5 hours between charges. This thing is really a life saver for me. I get a migraine almost once a week. They can last from one to up to four days! Who has that kind of time to just lock themselves in a dark room! Not me. But, thanks to the TrapWrap, I have found that if I feel a migraine coming on, I can put it on, take and aspirin and prevent the migraine completely. And, now that I have been using this regularly, I haven’t felt the migraines coming on as often!
And, because it is a portable heating pad, I am not wasting time just laying around. I can wear this to the grocery store, while doing laundry, dishes, and other housework, and my favorite–while blogging!
The unique, wireless, and flexible FabRoc™ technology provides the world’s first self-regulating heating systems, allowing you to relax and enjoy the benefits of stable Far Infared heat applied to one of your largest muscles–the trapezius.
There are four levels of heat offered, but I find myself using the highest setting because that’s how I roll. But, if you are not looking to really heat yourself up, you can choose a more comfortable level.
The TrapWrap is washable! Just remove the battery, hand wash in warm water with a mild detergent and then place it in the dryer on a low heat cycle.
They also have several styles available. This is great, although I think Chad looks great in my pink flowery one! 😉
