#Tiger_Balm_US Neck and Shoulder Rub #Review

Well, I grew up with Tiger Balm since when I was little, my grandma would always carry a stock supply on her. It brings back fond memories since whenever I wasn't feeling too well, she'd rub some Tiger Balm on me. So, I was very happy to test out Tiger Balm's Neck and Shoulder Rub.

Being a full time medical student is tough. If I'm not working at the hospital every day for 5-6 days a week, I'm at home studying or hunched over the computer working on my blog. LOL! It doesn't help that when I am at work, I have all this paperwork, water bottles, notepads, snacks, stethoscope, etc etc all shoved in my white coat. In short, that means, my white coast is disgustingly heavy and hangs off my neck like a ton of bricks. Needless to say, I've had neck, shoulder, upper back, and lower back pain and stiffness for quite a while now. This stuff could come into good use as it gently takes away my aches and pains!

I really enjoy the portability of the size. Its small enough to fit into my bag so that I can take it with me wherever I go, whether I'm slaving myself at the hospital or at home working. The cream is nice and light, no greasiness at all. However, the scent may be a bit strong for some. I love this scent though because it reminds me of my grandma. Even if you're not a fan of the scent, don't worry, the scent vanishes quickly.

I'm literally rubbing my neck while I'm reading this review! I have had sore shoulders for days now and I think this stuff is exactly what I need.

I fell out of a moving pick-up when I was in my late teens and landed on my shoulder, breaking the collar bone and wrenching the neck. It healed, of course, but would flair up every so often. Now that I am getting older...

My entire body hurts from my arthritis,scoliosis, DDD, Central stenosis and fibromyalgia/chornic pain. I am willing to try anything at this point.

My poor hubby suffers with chronic pain. It sounds like Tiger Balm may not be able to make his pain go away entirely, but long-lasting relief would be wonderful! We definitely want to try Tiger Balm products!
