It’s funny how when you are in your early 20′s, you look at things like, oh, say, muscle/joint rubs and you think: “Why would I ever need that?” Because, unless you do manual labor, or are an elite athlete, muscle pain is somewhat a foreign concept.
Fast forward a few years. Now I understand the need for muscle rubs! Back in the day, I was one of those smug young 20 somethings who thought that I’d never experience joint pain. Well, the joke was on me, obviously! I am not crippled with arthritis or anything, but after a hard day of working, or a grueling workout at the gym, I can honestly say that I do get some REAL muscle and joint pain. Ah, the joys of aging!
Enter Tiger Balm. You have all seen the tiny little jar with the gold metallic lid. It’s concentrated pain relief which has been used for many years. In my pharmacy, we sell a lot of Tiger Balm, to many loyal customers. Were you aware that Tiger Balm now has a new product?
It’s called Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub. It is a colorless, greaseless lotion which is ideal for rubbing into sore necks and shoulders. This is an ideal product for us people who are hunched over computer terminals all day. After years of constant hunching, and less than ideal posture, I developed a chronic pinched nerve in my neck. Soon after Tiger Balm released this new neck and shoulder product, I bought it and kept it in my locker at work. Every time I feel the pain coming on, I just slap some Tiger Balm Neck and Shoulder Rub on the area and head back to work. There is a mild scent to this product, however it disappears quickly over time.
I have been using this product for several months, and I am very happy with it. I like that it’s a nice portable formulation which fits easily in my purse. It is non-greasy, and rubs into the muscle easily without causing any staining to fabric. As mentioned previously, there is a mild scent to the product, as a result of the menthol and camphor which helps to relieve the pain. However, I did not find the scent to be a problem at all, it seemed to fade quickly, and my co-workers didn’t notice it at all.
Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub can be found at many major retailers across Canada including Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, Lawton’s Drugs, and Value Drug Mart.
