Tiger Balm is excellent for sore muscles.

Dit da jow is excellent for sore joints (especially from joint lock training).

About 30 years ago when I was training in kung fu, I made a bit of a mess of my foot. I was hastily treated with some ointment that really helped. Years later I did some research and concluded it was probably dit da jow. So I tracked some down and bought some from a wing chun academy. Suffice to say that the dit da jow was not the stuff I'd been treated with years ago. And in fact the dit da jow I'd bought was in fact utterly useless. That's not to say it's all useless. I'd love to find a supplier of some decent stuff.

This stuff has circulated amongst a few folks in our school. It's not FDA-approved... You'll have to buy it as a "supplement" and it can be very dangerous if you're not careful... but I've been told it works wonders!
