How does it work? When Tiger Balm is applied to the skin, the rubefacient & analgesic properties provide symptomatic relief from the pain & discomfort associated with muscular aches & pain of muscle & joints, arthritis, rheumatism & backaches. The active ingredient in camphor & the essential oils in tiger balm dilate the peripheral blood vessels & bring blood closer to the skin's surface. This produces increased circulation & warmth. The increased blood flow speeds up the healing process. This also increases the temperature of the skin & the sensation of warmth serves as a distraction from the pain. The local analgesic effect reduces the sensation of pain. http://www.alternativehealth.com.au/Product/tiger_balm.htm
