TOPICAL LINIMENTS (JIAOS) AND BALMS
Fu (pronounced foo) Medicinals topical balms and liniments provide pain relief for a wide range of injuries and pain-based conditions.
These liniments and balms are formulated from ancient recipes of the Chinese Kung Fu Martial Arts lineages. Each medicine is hand-crafted in small batches in Oregon, using organic and locally-produced ingredients whenever the option is there.
Dit Da Jiao Trauma Liniment and Balm. Dit Da Jiao (dit-dah-jow) is translated as "Hit-Fall Wine" in Chinese and has been a classic remedy in Kung Fu schools for centuries. Both the original liniment and balm adaptation are made from medicinal herbs that reduce inflammation and eliminate pain very quickly. This formula is called a Pacific North West Dit Da Jiao and is perfect for acute injuries, as well as flare-ups from older injuries. It removes hot swelling, moves stagnant blood, and relaxes tense tissues. The liniment is the more traditional medicine, and the balm version uses allows for easy application. The balm lends itself very well to speedy recovery from trigger point therapy or strong bodywork.
Tendon Mending Jiao and Balm. This formula, in both the original liniment form as well as the balm, is made to treat chronic tendon and ligament injury, such as tendonitis and ligament (joint) sprains. This formula has a reputation for warming and relieving stubborn cases and should be applied to the problem area before and after activity. However, because this is a warming formula, avoid use during the first 24-48 hours of a new injury. The balm version allows for easy application.
Muscle Oil is similar the original Wong Cheung Wah "U-I" recipe, made with organic oils and Chinese Medicinal Herbs. It excels at calming the pain and stiffness of aching muscles, especially when the discomfort feels worse in cold and damp environments. This oil is fantastic for massage and cupping therapies, as its warmth penetrates deep into muscle tissue. .
Bone Spur Jiao is available in the liquid form only. The premise behind this formula is that it works to dissipate the growth and resulting pain caused by bone spurs. This is currently limited in stock but more is on the way.
Are you wondering which product to choose? Jiaos (Liniments) are best applied by adding a small amount to a cotton ball and massaging into the affected area. Most effective is to to take a cotton ball or cotton wipe, wet it with the liniment, and place it over the injured area, and tape it into place with medical or first aid tape. This will allow for continuous and deep absorption of jiao. I like to leave it on overnight, and if the condition is bothersome enough, I will also do this during the day, or at least massage the liniment into the injured area several times per day.
The balms require no cotton ball, and some people prefer that ease of use while still retaining the strength of the original liniments. That said, these balm formulas are made with organic, unrefined virgin coconut oil, and as such, when in warm temperatures the balms tend to liquify to a certain extent. That is not a problem for most folks, but it should be considered when planning a trip where you may bring some balms along with you.
The balms spread very easily and don't feel too greasy on the skin. These are most applicable for when a jiao is difficult to use for whatever reasons you may have, and they are also effective.
Please note that these products may stain light-colored clothing.
Remember, that with all of these products, a little goes a long way!!
All Fu Medicinals topicals carry a mild and pleasant scent but nothing that would bother most people.
Fu Medicinals is also proud to be offering hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind Fire Cups for practitioners who treat using Fire Cupping Therapy. Our cups are made on very expensive equipment that is atypical for most glass blowers to own, and as such we can use pyrex and minerals to make these cups far stronger than the cups we tend to use in the clinics. But not only are they stronger, these cups also have artwork blown into them!! Please note that these are not offered as custom pieces- what you see is what is available for purchase.
And soon we will also be offering hand-crafted pyrex Gua Sha tools with amazing artwork blown into them.
All of these therapy tools can be completely sterilized between patients and are resistant to breakage.
Keep your eyes peeled for what's available!!
