Sometimes things hurts, in a way it’s a symptom of getting older. Sometimes it’s just sitting at the computer for too long and my shoulder aches, sometimes it’s after badminton and my knee hurts.
I’m pretty sure you have all heard of Tiger Balm, it’s a product used by generations of Malaysians to treat aches, pains and muscle soreness. They have come out with a great new product integrating Tiger Balm into large plasters.
They come in two sizes and two types (Warm & Cool), they are easy to apply and give long lasting relief for muscle pain and any others aches or soreness you may have.
Tiger Balm plasters are easy to apply, especially with the additional adhesive that’s provided – and the instructions for application are very clear.
The plasters themselves (the part that contains the Tiger Balm unique formulation) come sealed in an airtight plastic packet and also have a clear plastic backing to protect them – after removing this you can apply the plaster (it is self adhesive).
After a game of badminton (especially if I did some crazy dive) I quite often have some knee pain, Tiger Balm Plasters are great for soothing my knee after some exercise – I prefer to use the Warm type for this (like the heat sensation).
The great part about this is the hydrogel plaster and the additional adhesive are flexible and comfortable so you can apply these plasters on your joints (knee/elbow etc) and not have to worry about them falling off when you move about.
The other way I like to use these is when I have a headache or I’m just generally overheated – just put the cool Tiger Balm plaster on whatever part of your body feels very warm.
They are really great value for money, each pack actually comes with two plasters inside and the large pack is retailing for RM6.80 and the smaller one is RM5.20. You can get them at all the major pharmacies (Guardian/Watsons etc) and nearby pharmacies.
