My massage therapist always has a warm water bottle to put behind my neck or on my back after she massages an area. It is so soothing, like a cup of warm tea. My mother had a water bottle, but until I had one put on me after the massage I hadn't realized how soothing it was. Now in the winter when it is cold outside a warm water bottle is a real treat to take to bed with a good cup of tea and a good book. If you haven't tried one in a long time or ever, try it you will like it. A friend gave me the flannel dress for it that makes it even more cozy. A water bottle makes a special inexpensive gift too.
