Tendon Lotion Liniment Promotes Healing of Chronic Tendon Injuries


Tendon Liniment (also called Tendon Lotion Liniment) is an alcohol-extracted herbal liniment, a combination of warming herbs that relieve pain and supports the body's efforts at healing of chronic conditions or old injuries such as tendonitis, which includes tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, shin splints, old sprains or re-occurring problems made worse by cold and dampness. When heat makes your injury feel better, this is the formula for you. *
This unique blend of Chinese herbs works deep down into the tendons to stimulate and promote healthy circulation. Because of its warming nature, it is unsuitable for recent injuries or tendons and ligaments that are red, hot, or inflamed. It is normally used in 3rd stage, or late 2nd stage, tendon problems.

This custom formulation is made by the Modern Herb Shop and is more potent than commercial formulas. It is hand made and aged a minimum of 6 months to increase potency. The Extra Strength version has been aged at least 18 months.

Promotes circulation, breaks stasis.

Use on chronic sprains and strains that never seem to heal; tendonitis, tennis elbow, shin splints, and other sore areas that are constantly re-injured.
DO NOT use it on inflamed, hot injuries.

Directions, Ingredients, Contents:
Put a small amount on your fingers and massage gently into the injured area. Pressure should be deep enough to penetrate to the injured area, but not so deep as to be painful. Make small circles with your fingers and continue to rub the liniment into the area for several minutes, adding more as needed.
Apply 1-2x per day for 2-3 days. If the pain worsens, switch to Dit Da Jow (as that may mean that there is residual inflammation).

Tendon Lotion Liniment May 16, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from East Stroudsburg, PA United States  
I have chronic tendinitis in my elbow and hoping that this liniment will help.  Just started using it so will keep you updated.  I received my products very quickly and do appreciate that.

Great Product May 5, 2015
Reviewer: Dr. John Schreindl from Marshfield, WI United States  
As a professional martial artist and Doctor of Chinese Medicine I have a long history of using Chinese Herbal Liniments.  This product from Modern Herb Shop is fantastic and works great!  It saves me the time of making them myself when I can get a good quality liniment from them.  I use them on my patients, students, and myself.

Reviewer: Randy Elliott from bridgeport, WV United States  
I tore both of my shoulders, which still act up from time to time. This product helps with fast recovery when my shoulders act up.

Works great! April 8, 2015
Reviewer: bob callahan from concord, MA United States  
I've developed tendonitis on my thumb that has been bothering me for over a month and keeps getting worse. I started with this liniment and it has finally started to heal! I will always have a supply of this on hand, especially for those strained thumbs and fingers that I frequently get from gardening and splitting/piling wood.

Excellent Jow March 30, 2015
Reviewer: Martin from Michigan, USA, & Keeling, Taiwan  
This is a really good jow for a wide variety of injuries that are more than a few days old, that is to say, for chronic conditions (or injuries more than a few days old, where the rawness of a fresh injury is gone), and some warmth would be helpful. A good jow with a broad range of applications for somewhat older injuries. Recommended!
