Tendon Warming Liniment 

Muscle Soreness and Bruised Tendons

What is Tendonitis?

A tendon is a band of tough, fibrous connective tissues that attaches the muscles to the bones. 

The attachment site of the tendon on the bone is pulled during muscle contractions and movements.  Micro tears in the tendon cause irritation and inflammation impairing the normal smooth gliding motion of the tendon.  This inflammation is known as Tendinitis. It’s commonly caused by minor stress and repetitive motion, but can also occur from sudden serious impact or injury



Who can use this Liniment?

Red Chi Tendon Warming Liniment is a wonderful healing liniment for the treatment and rehabilitation of slow to heal or chronic tendon, sinew & joint injuries.


This Liniment is perfect for athletes, sports people, martial artists and combatants of all descriptions who suffer from strains, aches, pain, inflammation, tendonitis and joint pain. This liniment is perfect before, during and after training to keep the affected area warm and mobile.

Tendon Warming Liniment can be used as a preventative measure to help warm up muscles, tendons and joints prior to vigorous exercise, but may also help with existing chronic pain in the joints and tendons and with treating the symptoms of arthritis and other painful inflammation conditions. 


How is it applied?

Apply a small amount of the Tendon Warming Liniment like the size of a cap full in your palm of your hand and apply to the area needed, rub in vigorously. If it is applied below the waist rub in the direction of your toes, if it is above the waist rub toward the tips of your fingers.


Depending on your skin sensitivity this should be enough, if after a couple minutes it is not warm you can apply a little more.

After a couple of minutes you will feel the area you applied the Tendon Warming Liniment becoming warmer and wanner. You will also feel the area become less restrictive and easier to move. This is what you want and you can start your activity.

Always wash your hands after each application and secure the cap tightly, always keep out of reach of children.

Do not apply to an injury that is only 24 — 36 hours old, instead apply the Dit Da Jow or Iron Palm or both. After 24-36 hours you can apply the Tendon Warming Liniment.


The Tendon Warming Liniment is also applied last if you are combining multiple liniments at the same time. This liniment gets warm to hot depending on your sensitivity and the amount applied.
