Directions, Ingredients, Contents:
Zheng Gu Shui is useful before or after exercise for soreness and to strengthen tendons. As a trauma liniment, it is applicable for other acute injuries marked by swelling or pain. It is useful as a massage liniment before or after exercise. It may be added to bath water.

Fractures: Gauze, cotton balls or cloth is soaked in the liquid, and applied directly to the fracture for thirty minutes up to two hours. In China, TCM doctors reset the bones every three days, following with wraps soaked in Zheng Gu Shui (or a formula like it) before applying splints.

General instructions: Soak cotton balls with Zheng Gu Shui and apply, wrapping the cotton loosely with gauze. Leave on one hour for upper body, 1 1/2 hours for lower limbs. Shorten the time for children. Do this two times a day until the bone is healed. Do not apply to broken skin or open wounds.
For backache, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains, apply 3-4 times per day.

It can be used on all bumps, knocks, bruising, strains, and pulls that most greyhounds, lerchers, and working dogs and horses get.

What more can I say.  Note: the blurb reads "cooling pain relief"...it is anything but cooling, and I would advise against covering this stuff once you apply it.

Zheng Gu Shui works well! August 5, 2014

I'm happy with my purchase and have been using it on a bad bruise, but I imagine this would be even better for sore muscles after a tough workout. I like the applicator version best, just roll it over the affected area. Easy!

The Zheng Gu Shui is relatively expensive but it helped to diminish the degree of injury. It does leave a reddish brown stain on the skin which is easily washable.  The medicinal aroma is not a problem and the menthol component of the product leaves a pleasant cooling, tingling feel to the injured site.  This is certainly a great product to have on hand.  Much better than those products that has just menthol, methyl salicylate, camphor, etc. This product works due to those "secret ingredients" that is probably not listed on the bottle. Thanks to MHS for sending me my order so quickly for my urgent needs.

This stuff is FANTASTIC! March 29, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Englewood , CO United States  
I bought the original bottle from my former massage therapist.  She moved, so I needed to find a quick easy way to refill.  I did!!  Your  prices are good, the service fantastic, and shipping costs reasonable with quick delivery!  I couldn't live without my Zheng Gu Shui!  Too bad they don't tell you about herbal treatments like this at the traditional doctor's office.
