Stories

The YuYu Pain Warriors blog is a home for hot water bottle lovers and people who find some relief from using heat as an aid to relieve their daily pains. Here you will find real life stories of the beautiful people that we have met on our YuYu journey.

Nearly 43% of people in the UK suffer with a form of chronic pain or illness. An estimated 20.4% (50 million) of U.S. adults have chronic pain and 8% of U.S. adults (19.6 million) have high-impact chronic pain (that limited life or work activities). Globally, it is estimated that about 1 in 5, or about 1.5 billion people, suffer from chronic pain, as stated by the Centre of Disease Control in their 2018 Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

Read what Professor Brian King says about the YuYu Bottle.

We absolutely welcome you to contribute to our blog, with open arms. We take all stories very seriously and we hope that something in your story can help someone else.
