The first time I took this gel to a fun run, I offered tester samples. One runner was an avid fan of a well-known brand which reduces the experience of pain by blocking the nerve transmission of pain signals using mint. So he was skeptical, but his knees were in enough pain after the run that he was willing to give MUSCLES gel a shot.
I suggested that he use it  front and back and all around and  on both knees -- because we tend to be surprised how awful our 'decent' knee feels once our 'bad' knee feels great!
My brand is called 10 TO 15, because we expect results within 10 to 15 minutes. Usually within 5, but in cases of extreme pain and injury, it tends to take longer.
In fact, someone who tried it on a broken toe tested the time range: Not wanting to take a conventional medication but also not wanting to be careless, she applied the gel to her freshly injured toe and set a timer for 10 minutes. Within 7 minutes, she had relief. At that point, she was able to gather herself and get to her doctor for an x-ray. She never did have to use any other pain-killer. She relied solely on the MUSCLES gel and reports that her spiral fracture healed very quickly.
Back to the fun run. Within 5 minutes, I looked up and saw the runner beaming and headed back to my stand, saying, "My knees haven't felt this great since I was 12!"
Other happy customers call it "magic," say it is "worth its weight in gold," and they "wouldn't be caught without it."
Formulated for the daily bumps and bruises of childhood, our sponsored athlete @Alessandro_PDX first put it to the test as a pre-workout massage. He finds that it warms up his muscles faster, helping him get the most of his workout [or competition], with greater ease and bounce back.
Using the forces of nature and superb absorbability, this gel can handle almost anything. Prevent or relieve:
- Sore and stiff muscles and joints so you can move with ease and do what you love.
- Inflammation, including nerves to maintain that unstoppable force I know you are.
- Resolve injuries faster for a quicker bounce back.
- Optimize rehab, making it easier and more effective.
And the best part? This gel actually heals the underlying inflammation and nourishes the tissue, which is how it gives relief. All with the potentized power of nature. No suppression. No tricking the nerves into believing they're not in pain. Just give the body what it wants: a chance to heal!
People also have used this gel for everyday issues and the big stuff:
- resolve injuries to hips and shoulder even months after a car accident
- daily aches and pains
- twangs and little twists and strains
- pulled muscles
- as an adjunctive to homeopathic concussion treatment
- arthritis -- to finally be able to make a fist again!
- jammed toes
- broken toe
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Apply liberally to the affected area and adjacent areas. You’d be surprised how much strain is put on your neck when your shoulder is what hurts!
To Relieve: To relieve sore or stiff muscles, joints, or inflamed nerves, apply the MUSCLES gel to the affected + surrounding areas and massage in gently. It absorbs quickly, so if you have a large area to cover, apply in sections.
The sooner you start applying after an injury, the better: Recent injuries tend to resolve with 1-2 applications daily for a few days; sometimes even a single application is enough. Older injuries seem to respond to 1-2 applications daily initially, tapering off after as you experience improvement. Chronic issues seem to benefit from a single daily application initially, then only as needed.
To Prevent: Before activities that are likely to result in sore or stiff muscles or joints, apply the gel to the anticipated areas of discomfort + surrounding areas. Try applying before a tough workout or competition.
To Enhance: Consider applying before you head to the chiropractor, PT, massage therapy, or your personal trainer. Amplify your results, reduce your discomfort!
And … enjoy. This gel is here to help you get the most out of your life. Enjoy it!

My 10 to 15 is on my bathroom counter where I can easily access it even in the middle of the night to help with SI muscle issues. I have used it for other muscle issues as well; it's especially effective when applied as suggested to entire area.
I absolutely love MUSCLES Gel. Anytime I Have a bad ache, muscle strain or mystery pain, I use it. I've used it everywhere. Every ache, strain, pull in my back (recently rib pain), weird arm pains, legs, and neck What's left? I'm an older Dancer so It's hard to say what moves are giving me pain, but I feel more calm to have a "go to" remedy to resolve it quickly.
I had a throbbing toe, and for the first time in my life I had to take Ibuprofen to get to sleep. I used the gel, and it worked already the first night and by the second it was gone.
Used this gel on a variety of soft tissue (muscle) and joint aches- including immediately after getting bucked off my horse and it relieved the pain immediately while speeding up my recovery.
Also used it as a pre-workout to help with already sore muscles and after when I felt something was "off".
Absolutely am a fan and will be including it in client packages
I'm so sorry for the delay in my review. I bought and used it on many parts of my body. I had a problem with my left thumb not being able to open up kennel (crate) doors as I simply had no strength in that thumb. A couple days of the gel and guess what? I have strength in that thumb again and I. CAN. OPEN. CRATES. WOW! Who knew?? :)
I have used it on my knees and my ankles and my toes. I had a wicked headache a couple weeks ago and I smeared it on my head. Guess what? The headache disappeared. Great stuff. Thank you, Pamela, for creating it and for helping those of us who need just a little bit of "omph" to keep moving in a good manner. You rock!!
