Muscle Relaxer: The king herbs in Muscle Relaxer, Peony and Honey Baked Licorice comprise Shao Yao Gan Cao Tang, which is traditionally used to ease muscle spasms and cramps, and tightness of the tendons.In addition, Pueraria is one of the most effective herbs for the treatment of neck and shoulder injuries, and along with Peony, Licorice and Cinnamon Twig increases range of motion and relieves pain.
The herbs in Muscle Relaxer are often used in the TCM clinic to assist patients with chronic or acute tension and/or pain in the upper back, neck and shoulders, whiplash with muscle tightness and spasms, frozen shoulder, limited range of motion of the neck and shoulders, over-exertion and repetitive motion injuries of the neck, shoulders, arms and wrists, carpal tunnel, TMJ or tendonitis.
Though called Muscle Relaxer, this formula is not to be confused with the class of drugs called Muscle Relaxers, or centrally acting SMRs, which are used in addition to rest and physical therapy to help relieve muscle spasms. They’re thought to work by causing a sedative effect or by preventing your nerves from sending pain signals to your brain. You should only use these pharmaceutical muscle relaxants for up to 2 or 3 weeks. While this herbal formula does relieve some of the same symptoms, its main function is to, over time, improve the bodies flow of Qi or energy, and so prevent chronic recurrence. After significant improvement is achieved, a small, reduced dose may safely be taken medium to long-term for maintenance.
