It will increase blood flow. Because the effect of heat leads to softening of the muscle and body tissue, wheat bags also allow more blood to pass through your system, leading to a replenished feeling when applied locally. As well as this, increased blood flow will also increase the feeling of well being obtained, due to the resultant increase of oxygen that comes naturally as a result of the increased flow.
