This #21stCenturyPain is very real.
Most students and working professionals experience this almost on a daily basis. And this is none other than the neck, shoulder and back ache resulting from long hours in front of the computer. This problem has been loudly highlighted all over the net, teaching us how to adopt the right sitting posture to avoid such stiffness and ache.
These are just a few of the manyyyyyy instructions I found on the net. Over the years as a student with tonnes of assignments, a blogger with never-ending stories to share and a mini entrepreneur with an online blogshop, I spend most of my waking hours working at the desk, on my lappie.
Sometimes, no matter how I tried to adopt the right sitting posture, the right distance away from the screen and so on, I still feel the sore and ache on my neck and shoulders after sitting put for a few hours. Especially for yours truly, when inspiration and motivation comes, I cannot leave elsewhere! The moment I move, I'll be distracted and my hard-earned concentration would be gone :')
What we usually do with those aches is....well, nothing. This is simply because we're living such face-paced lives without the luxury of time to carefully attend to them, that aches like these would be easily ignored by us. I, for one, am guilty of it!
Now, there's an effective and convenient solution to the problem we all busy and time-starved peeps face.
Tiger Balm to the rescue, people!
Many of us remember the brand, Tiger Balm in the old packaging as below.
But now, they have an all-new modern packaging especially for the Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub!
Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub comes in 2 variants:
The Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub (left) comes with a soothing lavender fragrance that provides lasting relief for mild neck and shoulder aches, while the Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub Boost (right) has a refreshing scent that invigorates, and at the same time, provides extra strength and lasting relief for over-stressed, tired and stiff neck and shoulder muscles.
Now, what I personally love about these 2 powerhouse are simply these:
#1: They're Effective
I've used them on several occasions, and found them to be a real relief! The quick, cooling effect (which later translates into the heating effect when it's at work) really eases whatever discomfort I'm feeling. As the packaging states, if you want the extra boost, use the Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub Boost. Else, the normal one would be effective enough :)
#2: They're Non-Greasy
I'm really particular about what I put on my skin, especially the texture of the creams, lotions, etc that I apply on my face and body. I absolutely loathe products that are greasy and oily, which leaves the skin feeling warm and sticky. A huge no-no! These Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rubs are specially formulated in a non-greasy texture for people like me :D The application is easy, fuss-free, and the best part about it is that after applying for a few minutes, you can't even feel the products on your skin as they're thoroughly absorbed. Which is absolutely awesome! Try it to believe, really :)
#3: They're Convenient
First of all, instead of sticking our finger into the old, glass bottles which usually gets our nails all stuck with the product, now, we can just squeeze the product from the 50g flat tube, and just apply. No need to think about cleaning our fingernails thereafter ;)
Secondly, I love the packaging and size of the product! As you can see from the photo above, the colour and design of the product is modern and sleek, and best of all, they're palm-sized which allows me to easily slip it into my bag (even if you have a bag full of stuff, like mine!). It is literally "Massage on the Go" for those with hectic lifestyles, as we can now bring it with us anywhere without having to worry about dirtying our nails, or it being too big and inconvenient to bring around. Now, we can rejuvenate and relieve the tense muscles on our neck and shoulders practically anytime, anywhere :)
Now that you've heard about why I love them, here are some facts that differentiates the Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub from others :)
It is created and manufactured by Tiger Balm, world renowned and trusted brand in providing quality products for relief of aches and pains for almost a century. It is also approved by the Ministry of Health, and is now widely used in various countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, USA, and many others.
Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub is the ONLY PRODUCT available in the market that has a special formulation to specifically target the aches and tension in muscles and around the neck & shoulder area.
They're now available in leading pharmacies and Aeon Wellness stores :)
