Kwan Loong Oil

Kwan Loong Oil is recommended for the relief of minor aches and pains of muscles and joints.  In our clinic we use it extensively on the vast majority of our patients.  Opposed to tiger balm and related products, as it is an oil, it goes deeper into the muscles and provides longer lasting relief.

The herbal ingredients increase superficial circulation. The spicy ingredients including lavender and eucalyptus are combined to feel cooling and invigorating.
