...in America's finest city, I started my own acupuncture and massage therapy clinic. Armed with some skills to treat a variety of general ailments using traditional Chinese medicine, I opened my doors to see all types of patients. As my practice got busier, I found that I really enjoyed solving musculoskeletal pain problems. Specifically, I was beginning to focus on injury, athletic performance, and post-surgical rehabilitation.
The Balm was Born
I began to use topical pain relief cream in my treatments as a way to extend the pain relief that my patients experienced in my office. When I looked at the labels of some of these products I was using, I was happy with the ingredients, but I was unsure of their quality and source. It concerned me to the point of contemplating my own pain balm! I knew that in this way, I could control the quality, sourcing, and manufacturing to match the high quality of natural pain treatments that I was providing in my clinic.
Poring over my TCM books and the ancient TCM herbal formulas, I spent almost 2 years testing and retesting ingredient combinations. With my mom suffering from chronic neck and back pain, she was the perfect candidate to provide feedback on my balm variations! There from the start, she and I worked together over the different versions. When I finally struck upon the right formula, she called me up on the phone and I could literally hear it in her voice how much she loved it! I knew that the next step was to test it in my clinic and see what my patients thought.
Becoming Battle Balm
At the time I introduced the balm to my clinic patients, I was seeing quite a few athletes for sports injuries. These athletes really enjoyed the balm so much, that they started asking for some to take home. A business idea was launched! All I needed now was a name.
I chose the name Battle Balm because the formulation is based upon a compilation of ancient Shaolin herbal recipes for injury and pain. The word "Battle" pays homage to those ancient martial arts roots from which Battle Balm was born. I thought it was very fitting and definitely perfect!
