Got Pain? Get Salonpas! #Review + #Giveaway


The older we get the more aches and pains we feel.  I have back pain but I guess 18 years of teaching Kindergarten where I'm sitting in little chairs and on the floor will do that to a person!  My pain lately has been in the heel of my foot.  I was excited to try out the line of Salonpas products.  And even more excited to share with my husband and Dad who have worse pain than I do.  This package arrived and I immediately rubbed the Deep Relieving Gel on my foot and could feel some relief.  I loved the smell and it just feel good on my foot.  I also used on the the Pain Relief Patches, but I couldn't get it to stay on.  It's not a convenient place for something to stick too.  My husband has had some shoulder pain the past couple weeks due to some things he does at work.  Of course, he won't go to the doctor.  He has been wearing a Pain Patch on it every day for over a week and says though the pain is still there it's not nearly as bad as it had been.  My Dad has a bad knee and has had a cortisone shot in it twice in the past 6 months and they don't relieve the pain longer than 2 weeks.  My Dad has chosen not to have surgery on his knee at his age.  He is using the Deep Relieving Gel and the Pain Patches on his knee.  He also really loves the smell of the gel.  Although, his pain is still there he says it defintly helps relieve it when he uses these products and will continue to use them.  So, if you are experiencing some aches and pains, you may want to check out the products that Salonpas has to offer.  

My husband really loves the Hot Patch!  

This one is perfect for my Dad's knee.

I've been using these on my foot. 

Clear, pain relieving gel.

Pain relieving spray.


My husband wears a patch on his shoulder every day. 

A little information about Salonpas...

History of SALONPAS®
In the century-and-a-half since our founding, Hisamitsu has pioneered the development of patches and other topical treatments to relieve everyday aches and pains. Our SALONPAS® product line gained early acceptance in Asia and now sells in 50 countries around the world.

Although our products now enjoy international recognition, we started out as a small, family owned business in Japan.  Hisamitsu Pharmaceutical was founded in the mid-19th century under the name of Komatsuya. The company went on to create a large variety of health-related products. Our company has always prided itself on its ability to create new consumer products based on Hisamitsu’s comprehensive research, development, manufacturing, and sales capabilities.

SALONPAS® brand patches were first introduced in 1934, and their outright efficacy propelled our company to the position of market leadership that we currently hold today. SALONPAS® was developed through the application of Asahi Mankinko, the prototype therapeutic patch we introduced back in 1903. The original product gained quick acceptance and was considered cutting edge technology in its day. Thanks to sustained research and input from everyday users, our products continue to evolve.  Moreover, our company has expanded the culture and use of patch treatment. Hisamitsu continues to develop and refine therapeutic patches that are safe and easy to use.

Corporate Philosophy
We believe the fulfillment of our mission is nothing less than an obligation to the global community. It is with that in mind that we work to improve our products and promote new means for people everywhere to apply the many benefits of topical care.   Hisamitsu’s goal has always been to advance the benefits of external  analgesic treatments, especially their pain-relieving effects and the feeling of invigoration they offer. Nowhere is this objective better expressed than in our corporate maxim, “Salonpathy”. This word was derived from SALONPAS®, one of our key products. Under the banner of Salonpathy, we are actively promoting better health for people around the world, offering a range of pain relieving patches and pharmaceutical products.  As the 21st century begins, we are responding to basic needs that unite people everywhere. Good health, freedom from pain and a lifestyle rich in vitality, is the foundation for all we do at Hisamitsu. Our business strategy is designed to develop new medical products and drugs commensurate with our core competencies in external  analgesic. This is our mission, to make topical care available for all who seek it-anytime, anywhere.

Research & Development
The future of pharmaceutical products is one of unprecedented possibilities. Hisamitsu’s efforts in research and development are focused on external analgesic products. The poultices, plasters, and ointments applied to the skin have been used for many generations. There are good reasons that this tried and true technology of administering drugs through the surface of the skin for delivery throughout the body is enjoying modern day popularity.

These include:

Maintaining a steady drug concentration in the bloodstream
Controlling dosage over a specific period of time
Avoidance of the first-pass effect through the liver
Reducing any harmful effects to the digestive system
