If there’s one thing that this house has in abundance, it’s pain. My husband has more metal in him than Iron Man. He is in pain every day of his life though some days are thankfully better than others. I suffer from Fibromyalgia and many other chronic illnesses, so I have my fair share of aches and pains as well. Any relief from pain is welcome for both of us, so when Hisamitsu reached out and asked if we wanted to try their Salonpas® products, it was a mutual YES!
FedEx dropped off a box full of Salonpas® products a few days ago, and hubby and I have been trying out each and every one of them since. It just so happens that I was flaring, and hubby was in extra pain from working on our kitchen floor last week, so the timing couldn’t have been better.
The first thing I chose to try was the Salonpas® JET Spray. I love the fact that I don’t have to rub in any lotion, gel or cream, because I almost always, some how (eve AFTER washing my hands) will get some in my eye. I applied the spray to my wrist and to my ribs and lower back where I was flaring the worst. The cooling effect of the spray felt great and within a few minutes, the pain was lessened.
My husband chose the Salonpas Deep Relieving Gel. His thighs and knees were killing him, so he asked me to rub some into the muscles. (So much for not getting my hands dirty, lol) A little of the gel goes a long way. It was easy to wash off of my hands, and my hubby said it did help his muscle pain quite a bit. He even asked me to reapply it later that evening, which means it really worked for him. This is wonderful because it’s hard to find products that really help his type of pain.
One of the other Salonpas products that Hisamitsu sent to us is their Pain Relieving GEL Patch HOT. LADIES, listen up! This is perfect for you! Do you suffer from awful menstrual cramps? Endometriosis? Ovarian Cysts? I suffer from all three, and I promise you that the HOT pain relief patches WILL help when it’s your time of the month. Think of it as a heating pad that can go anywhere you do. I have been using these patches for a long time now, and I swear by them. They really help take the edge off during that time of the month. They work on other pain as well, but for me, they are my go to for when that time rolls around.
