The formulas used in our products were originally developed over centuries by ancient Chinese physicians. We believe that the development process followed a similar process to what the great scientist Carl Sagan described when he spoke about the potential benefits of folk medicine. Kung fu and pain relief medicines in China developed closely together. In fact, advances in this area of Chinese medicine can be seen as a form of early military technology that gave an edge to ancient soldiers and fighters.

Apply the cream sparingly to affected area and massage thoroughly until absorbed into the skin. Repeat when necessary, not more than 4 times daily. For first time use, rub or massage a small amount to the affected area and monitor the level of local heat sensation before applying more or for subsequent use. A gradual but long-lasting warm sensation will build up after 15-30 minutes of application.
We recommend you keep the Restore Patch on for at least 8 hours, preferably between 12 and 15 hours. The Restore Patch gradually releases its ingredients during that time, and can also provide support to your body throughout your day.

We recommend your personalized Recovery Kit based on the answers you provide in our short questionnaire. Each Recovery Kit comes complete with the PainFix Pain Relieving Gel, Restore Patch and Strong Body exercises.

The number of PainFix Restore Patches recommended will also change based on the severity and duration of your problem. One box set of Restore Patch contains 5 individual patches, for 5 days’ use.

With a subscription, we will send you a new 10-day supply of Restore Patches and a new Pain Relieving Gel each month to ensure you’re always building on the improvements you made in the previous month.
