Many women have found themselves uttering “deal with it” through gritted teeth during the challenges of period pain, the recovery after childbirth while wearing surgical underwear, or enduring the physical and psychological changes of perimenopause. The inherent capacity for transformation is an extraordinary trait ingrained in women, present in their bones, breasts, bellies, and births. Turning pain and unrest into something powerful is a shared destiny, both physically and emotionally, for womankind.
It is strongly believed that providing women with the means to care for themselves during transformative times, along with all the accompanying difficulties, can turn the "deal with it" mentality into something positive, empowering, and invigorating. This belief led to the establishment of Nyssa, born out of the founders' shock at the lack of solutions available for postpartum healing. Their first creation, FourthWear Postpartum Recovery Underwear, was the solution they sought.
Currently, Nyssa collaborates with experts in the field, such as OB-GYNs, pelvic floor therapists, doulas, sex educators, and women from various corners of the world. The goal is to ensure that their designs offer tangible results, assisting each woman in dealing with the unique physical and emotional transformations they all experience.
Open discussions and sharing of experiences are actively encouraged. Recognizing the depth of collective, connective resilience, empathy, and possibility can only happen when women talk, listen, and share their stories.
- Can I use the Uterine Ice/Heat Pack if I have a caesarean delivery? Can I use it if I have a vaginal birth?
Though each of the packs are uniquely designed to provide coverage and comfort to specific regions of the body, ice and heat therapy will be effective wherever you place the pack. Nyssa Care ice/heat packs can be used anywhere you’d like to apply hot/cold therapy for non-medicated pain relief.
- Are the materials and cooling agents in the ice/heat pack safe?
The exterior of the ice/heat packs is made of an FDA-approved knitted plastic/fabric composite. The cooling agent is comprised of naturally derived ingredients: glycerine, water, and sodium polymer. These ingredients are all non-toxic and approved by the FDA.
- Can the pack be used directly on the skin?
Yes. However, placing any ice/heat pack directly on the skin can cause tissue damage, particularly for sensitive areas such as the perineum. For hot therapy specifically, please make sure that you safely and thoroughly test the temperature of your pack prior to placing it directly onto your skin.
