Christmas in Australia is definitely something to look forward to – the weather’s warmer, we have more time for the bike and there are always cycling-themed gifts on offer. Here we take a look at some of this year’s Chrissy gift ideas
The team here at Bicycling Australia are big fans of Fisiocrem, we’ve been using and swearing by it for years. Head to one of the ever-popular Classics series Gran Fondo events – namely the Bowral, Mudgee or Snowy Classics – and one of the most popular partner tents is invariably Fisiocrem!
A topical massage gel for the temporary relief of muscular aches and pains, Fisiocrem is exceptionally effective courtesy of a very simple combination of four natural ingredients.
Menthol — Made from the oils of corn mint, peppermint, and other mint plants is menthol. Menthol provides a cooling sensation, supports body tissue repair and regeneration and helps relieve symptoms of muscle sprains and strains.
Arnica —Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, arnica supports healthy blood circulation and relieves bruises and mild joint swelling while encouraging the body to kickstart its healing system.
Hypericum —More commonly known as St John’s wort, hypericum relieves muscle pain and soreness.
Calendula —Native to southwestern Asia, calendula helps relieve minor muscle spasms and twitches, a common issue for those who have over exercised or suffer from stress.
Melaleuca —Also known as tea tree oil, melaleuca also acts as an anti-inflammatory and relieves symptoms of muscle injury and ailments.
What does it do? Muscle pain relief gel provides temporary relief to sore muscles. The gel stimulates and soothes inflamed muscle tissue. Specific ingredients, like menthol, provide a cooling effect on the skin that helps enhance blood circulation to the peripheral areas of the body, helping to improve muscle recovery time.
Relieve your aching muscles by adding Fisiocrem into your recovery routine – your body will thank you for it.
