More Information

A traditional jow shouldn't provide any particular sensation when being applied (except for a slight cooling sensation as the alcohol evaporates). What you should notice is that your pain just seems to disappear. It's not masked by local stimulus, instead the obstruction of qi and blood is moved by the medicinal nature of the substances in the liniment and your pain is gone. There is a saying in Chinese- Tong Ze Bu Tong, Ze Tong Bu Tong - Where there is pain there is no flow, where there is flow there is no pain.

Iron palm training jows (and soaks) take hit medicine to a higher level. The medicine itself is an integral part of the training and conditioning of the body. It is never undertaken lightly and should always include the supervision of a trained instructor. Iron Palm medicines are formulated to open the energy channels of the body leading the Qi from Dan Tien to the hands. Proper training takes many years. Used over the short term and without proper training, you simply have another useful Dit Da Jow.

Whether you are a martial artist, a warrior, or an athlete, repeated bruising in one area can create accumulations of stagnant qi and blood that can cause serious health problems as you age. Dit Da Jows were developed to disperse these accumulations and promote a healthy body and long career.
