Balm and Oil in Thai Boxers’ lives

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

Welcome to the blog once again! It is undeniable that balms and oil have been used by Muay Thai boxers for decades. Many times I just assumed that Thai boxers are just addicted to them. But I’ve learned now that more and more foreign Thai boxers are interested in applying these products just like Thai people.

Actually the balm and oil products are quite important and the must have in Thailand’s household. The uses of the balm are plenty. For example, white balm and red balm.

White Tiger Balm and Red Tiger Balm

These products can be used by inhaling and/or applying onto the skin. Since they contain Menthol, Camphor, Cajuput oil, Clove oil and Mint oil, they can help you relax and clear your nostrils when you feel dizzy or sick and have blockage when breathing. The warmth from the balm will help relieve the pain and sprains. Thais use these for insect bites and bruises.

Num Mun Muay Boxing Liniment 120 cc.

But for boxers, boxing liniment is a must have. We boxers use the boxing liniment or sometimes known as Nam Man Muay or Muay Oil before and after training or fighting. It is believed to provide good relief for any banged-up muscles or shins and bones. This deep healing oil-base product contains Methyl Salicylate, an anti-inflammatory and Menthol. The hot oil will help preventing and treating the pain that can come from any tough and full-contact sports just like Muay Thai Boxing.

If you haven’t tried any of these products, I really recommend you do try once. They might smell weird at the beginning I admit but it will give you the feel of truly Thai boxing feeling. And these products are not that expensive and very useful to have at hand. There are also discounts for product set.
