I admit: I’m not as young as I used to be, nor as indestructible as I thought I was.
Given that I’m no longer a sprightly spring chicken, some aches and pains are to be expected… which can be kind of a drag.
After all, there is so much for me to do and so much I want to accomplish. Between juggling my responsibilities at home and at work, and squeezing in activities to broaden my mind and slim down my waistline (hopefully!), I really have so little time to waste just wallowing in my pain.
I also can’t ignore it either. Chronic pain can be quite detrimental to anyone’s physical, mental and even emotional well-being. It can lead to lethargy, loss of appetite, inability to sleep, increased anxiety and even depression.
It’s a good thing, then, that for small aches and pains, quick relief can be provided by Tiger Balm.
For more than a century, Tiger Balm is the recognized topical medication for pain relief against swelling, backaches, muscle and joint strains and sprains. It products are made with powerful blends of medicinal herbs known for their curative effects such as camphor, menthol and other essential oils which soothe pains away.
Ointments. For shoulder and neck pains, or to help ease tension headaches or muscle soreness after physical activity, the Extra Strength Ointment, characterized by its warm reddish-brown color and cinnamon-infused scent, is the go-to medication. For an intensified pain relief against backaches, stiff muscles and joint strains, the non-staining and light-hued Ultra Strength Ointment is the way to go. The penetrating heat from these ointments helps open up blood vessels and increase circulation that assist out body in repairing damaged tissues.
Just rub the ointment onto the affected area until it’s fully absorbed and wait for the soothing heat to work its magic.
Tiger Balm ointments can also be used to alleviate cold symptoms, free up nasal congestion and treat mosquito bites.
Pain-Relieving Patches. For strong, targeted and more convenient relief from post workout pain, Tiger Balm’s Pain-Relieving Patch is your best bet. Combining the soothing effects of Tiger Balm’s medicinal ingredients with the handy and mess-free application of a patch, it is a practical and hassle-free solution to muscle and joint aches. The warm plaster is best for strong pain relief, especially from chronic pains at the thigh, back and shoulders, while the cool plaster is effective for relief from sprains nd strains, and also aids in recovery from sports injuries especially at the wrist, elbow and ankle.
Tiger Balm also produces Mosquito Repellants, perfect for those living in a tropical country like ours where pesky mosquitoes abound, especially during summertime. To prevent the irritating insects from getting near and biting your kids when they play outside or even indoors, spray the citronella-scented scented solution around the area or attach the patch on your little one’s clothes.
I’m glad that with my Tiger Balm stash, these aches and pains can remain minor inconveniences that I can easily eliminate. That way, I can go on with my day and get back to all I need to accomplish.
