Everyday aches and pains sometimes are unavoidable as you get older, especially when you are on your feet all day at work at the office or like me at home, running after little ones. I have a bad tendency to get leg and foot cramps, arthritic pain and more caused by my ongoing hip problems.

I am not one to take medication unless I am ultimately sick. I don't like the feeling and I have kids to take care of, side effects are not an option. Typically heat therapy, exercise such as stretches and muscle rubs tend to help when the pain is bad at night but of course I am always looking for a new method to add to my therapy, anything to help. 

When I was asked to take a look at Deep Relief products from the Mentholatum Company of Canada, my first wonder is if it would help with some of my muscle pains. I have tried other muscle rubs in the past that worked somewhat but I have yet to find "the one". 

I think I have found something that works and works quickly, not only for me but for my hubby too. Here's what happened: I was sweeping the floor and I got a random but bad foot cramp. It cramped across the entire bottom of my foot and hurt to the point I wanted to put the broom down and just cry. I thought of the Deep Relief Heat Spray




I took the bottle out and sprayed a small amount on my foot where the cramp was and put on my sock. I felt the heat sensation right away, without the burn. Within a couple of minutes the heat resided a little and the pain went away. I was amazed at how quickly Deep Relief Heat Spray worked! Normally when I get a foot cramp I feel the pain for a while after the initial cramping goes away and after using the heat spray, it didn't come back at all. Deep Relief really helps! The only warning I have is use the heat spray in a well ventilated area because it's pretty potent.




Next up was hubby, he had a bad headache a couple of nights ago caused by neck and shoulder tension. We tried the Deep Relief neck, shoulder and back hands-free rub. I applied it around his neck, shoulders and back area that felt tense. The applicator was easy to use and not messy. It's not smelly and it isn't greasy either. He had the same result as I did. He felt the warm sensation where the Deep Relief was applied and within about 15 minutes his headache resided and was much more manageable for him.

Deep Relief products are topical analgesics that penetrate deep to the site of pain, working fast targeting pain on contact and lasting up to six hours. Deep Relief can be used in place of pain medication or in addition to ongoing pain therapy. 




My hubby and I would definitely recommend trying Deep Relief heat products for muscle pain and tension or Deep Relief cooling products in place of ice or cold/hot pads. My mom used to use a similar ice gel therapy for head and neck aches too. They work and come in different forms like patches gels and sprays. As any product always consult your physician if you have any major concerns before or during use.
