    I was very skeptical when a friend at work offered me her 'miracle Chinese medicine patch' for my back injury but I trusted her and tried it. I am so glad I did!

    I had torn a muscle in my back and the pain and spasms were so bad I couldn't sleep. I don't like to take pain meds so this was a great alternative. The first night I tried it I slept almost all night. The next night, a restful 8 hours! It is easy to apply, no greasy mess and the cats only mildly dislike it :D. Better than all that is you can use it any time of day or night without smelling 'mediciney'.

    The only drawback I found was that it can be harsh on sensitive skin. I noticed burns where I had applied the patch to the same area 2 nights in a row so I just make sure to move it around now. I also found that taking it off in the shower reduces the removal sting.

    I highly recommend this product to anyone who has muscle injury or strain as well as for chronic pain.

    While this product helps manage pain, this is not a cure. This review is not meant to diagnose or treat any injury. Please consult your doctor regarding injury or ongoing pain.

    I used these after knee surgery as I'd been experiencing some occasional pain under my knee cap. They worked well in reducing pain, but I developed a terrible allergic reaction. I had a bad itchy rash at the patch site on my knee for nearly a month after discontinuing use . The rash was so bad I am afraid to try them again. They contain rubber, and I fear I may have now developed a rubber/latex allergy.

      I have non-diabetic peripheral neuropathy and have tried many topical pain relievers. This is by far the best I have found. Even cut patches into strips to fit areas around toes. I carry patches with me everywhere and have helped others having joint or muscle pain. Very easy to use.

        I use this product anytime I need some pain relief to sleep or simply to move around more freely. It is easy to use and works well as long as I remember to apply to bare skin - no lotions or creams as they may prevent good sticking. The pads have proven a great alternative for someone who cannot take aspirin orally.

            I have plantar fasciitis - one of these on the bottom of each foot really takes the edge off!! They also keep me from getting this stabbing/burning pains while at rest. Only thing that has worked so far.

                I have a torn labrum in both shoulders and cervical stenosis. I tried these patches on the off chance they might offer some relief, and they most certainly do. I can now almost completely avoid narcotic pain medication. Until I can get my problems surgically repaired, these will be with me every day.

                          It has a menthol smell to it and it dumbs the area more than anything. Worked good for my husbands broken hand.

                            Fibromyalgia, arthritis, Lupus. I have used these for years. Have got my neighbors using them. I cut the little patches in strips to use on my finger joints. A whole patch is a bit much on a finger joint. These are great for trigger points..you know the ones that the doctor pushes on and calls it a trigger point. There are four on my back that my husband takes care of. Once you put the patch on, rub it to warm it. I have never had to use the bigger ones. I find the area, which is usually an area where the pain is coming from and cover it or use two patches. There are times I may have them on my shoulders, fingers, toes, elbows, neck ....all over from neck to toes, and they do not omit the smell like the rubs. I use less pain pills and have more time on my feet. I have had rashes from patches, but I have only had it when I have tried to use the patches in the same area over several days. Anytime I can get relief, I will try it. I have used them for about 10 years. Great when traveling! Can put them in little snack bags to carry them anywhere. I grab these before I grab my lipstick!
