What is X-Jow Pain Gel?
X-Jow Pain Gel is a light, non-greasy gel that has a mild topical sensation, and yet penetrates deep beneath the surface to restore micro-circulation to the injured area. The potent combination of Chinese herbs works to improve blood and lymph flow, nourish and repair tissue, and promote new growth.

X-Jow Pain Gel has been successfully used for many pain conditions. It is effective for both acute and chronic injuries, including sprains, strains, dislocations, hairline fractures, non-healing injuries, arthritic conditions, and more.

X-Jow, A Different Approach…
There is a saying in Chinese: “Bu tong ze tong, tong ze bu tong” (Where there is pain there is no flow, where there is flow there is no pain.) This wisdom characterizes the traditional Chinese medicine approach to healing soft tissue injuries and is the basis for X-Jow.

When you sprain your ankle, knee, or wrist, it is usually accompanied by swelling, bruising, severe pain, and a limited range of motion. Blood vessels rupture, resulting in subcutaneous bleeding, and the tissue turns black and blue. Allopathic (Western) medicine often recommends icing the injury to reduce the inflammation. Pharmaceutical pain creams and sprays promise cooling or heating effects that are supposed to provide relief from the throbbing.

From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, both heat and cold are detrimental to the healing process. In order for the injury to heal, there must be abundant blood flow. Applying ice cuts off blood flow, exacerbating stagnation, and allowing the injury to linger longer. Pain creams that purport to have icy or hot effects may reduce pain temporarily by distracting the body with a superficial burning or cold sensation, but they do not penetrate to the root of the injury or help to heal it.
