I received the mentioned products in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts contained within this post are mine and may vary from the thoughts of others.
Good Medicine Knows No Boundaries
Following the first launch of Asian market in 1937, Salonpas products embarked on a dramatic trend in overseas expansion and they are now available in more than 30 countries around the world.
What We Thought
Busy moms know that sore muscles and nerve pain can’t keep us down. We have to keep going and doing the everyday chores, but there are times of the year when we are doing even more than the usual.
With the holidays just passing us by I have had some time to sit back and really think about everything that I was able to accomplish from the end of October until the first part of January and even into the New Year. These things didn’t get accomplished without pain. You know they say no pain, no gain and I am starting to think that is absolutely true.
My husband started working a Monday-Friday full time job for the first time since I’ve known him about 6 months ago. I was used to having him home a lot, helping out with chores and with the kids. Life was pretty easy for me, especially around the holidays when I needed the extra time to get things prepared. This year was totally different. He was working more than he had since having 1 child and last year we added a second. Talk about changing life! Adding William into our mix was an absolute blessing, but lets face it, babies are a lot of work.
When Patrick went back to work I found myself taking on things that I had once had tons of help with and that meant getting some aches and pains. I am not one for any sort of prescriptions for pain management. They are just too risky and the effects on the body are not something I want to take a chance with while having 2 small kids in the house. With those aches and pains came my search for something that could help and not make me drowsy or add ingredients into my body that I do not feel are safe.
Salonpas to the rescue. I was able to try out some patches and sprays that absolutely helped me. I tend to have lower back pain from an injured nerve and the patches helped it tremendously. I am happy to say that I didn’t have to reach for any pill form help while using these.
Also recently we had a friend come over who had severe back pain and he applied a patch after trying numerous OTC medications without relief. Within 15 minutes he felt relief and in 45 minutes was pain free. This is revolutionary in a time when so many people are reaching for a pill bottle when we can have something that is so effective.
Salonpas allowed us to try these products and for them I am forever thankful. From one tired mom to the world of tired moms, these products are for you! I recommend them to anyone who is stiff, achy, sore and feels muscle tiredness. I know many of you are working out more right now trying to lose the extra pounds that you may have added during the holidays and with that usually comes some muscle aches. These are for you! Spring cleaning is knocking on our door as well and with that is coming a major living room renovation (blog posts to come!!) and I know that I will be reaching for Salonpas for all of my needs!
