Providing effective Pain relief since 1934. For temporary relief of minor aches & pains of muscles & joints associated with arthritis, strains, bruises, sprains, stiff neck, sore shoulder, backache, and joint pain.

The history of medicated patches in Japan reaches back to the 18th century. The Hisamitsu company, founded in 1847, introduced Salonpas in 1934. The patches are now available in over 50 countries worldwide. 

Product Description:

* Ideal size and combination of active ingredients for Katakori: "Japanese for stiffness in the neck and shoulders"

* Fast, Effective and Powerful Penetrating Pain Relief

Ideal for stiffness and tightness of neck to shoulders after intensive deskwork, nighttime driving or reading. 

Active ingredients: Methyl Salicylate 6.3%, Menthol 5.7%, Camphor 1.2%.

Each patch is attached to a green reversible (doublesided) backing film. Apply the patch after peeling off the backing film. 

Once you apply SALONPAS® patches to the neck and/or to the shoulders, the active ingredients quickly pass through the keratinous layer, epidermis and dermis. These ingredients then penetrate into the bloodstream through the capillary vessels, providing fast, effective pain relief where it's needed most. 

Indications: For temporary relief of minor aches & pains of muscles & joints associated with arthritis, simple backache, strains, bruises, and sprains.

Warnings: Do not use on wounds or damaged skin, if you are allergic to aspirin or salicylates, with a heating pad, with or at the same times as other external analgesic products, or if you are allergic to any ingredients of this product. When using this product do not use otherwise than as directed, avoid contact with the eyes, mucous membranes or rashes. Stop use and ask a doctor if rash, itching or excessive skin irritation develops, conditions worsen, symptoms persist for more than 7 days, or symptoms clear up and occur again within a few days. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.'s Official Patient Review: Salonpas may be a strange name, but the one thing that counts is that it works -- and it does! I have often used these patches when I wanted to get relief in my neck area. Whether I was experiencing neck pain or a headache, these are one of the few patches that fit very well in this area. They are the perfect size!

It's a tiny little patch that's quite sticky - and you can carry around two patches very easily in your pocket or wallet. It's about the size of a business card - one patch on each side. It's ingenious how portable the design is. 

The stickiness is great, allows you to wear them through exercise, such as riding a bike or rollerblading. Sometimes when I am in pain, even just walking and building up a sweat is too much for your average pain relief topical. Not so with Salonpas! It sticks around! (Of course, if you sweat profusely, who knows - but for average exercise, it's great!)

Salonpas does not have as strong a menthol warming feeling as some other patches, but sometimes just having something that lasts is enough to provide relief. Plus, I would guess you could use these more often with less chance of irritation to the skin with Salonpas.

I have often found Salonpas relieved my headaches so well, I forgot it was on... it truly helps and even does a better job than over-the-counter medication at times! Try a patch or two next time you have a headache, sore wrist or shoulder. Sticks just about anywhere, even areas that bend and move!
