This is what happens when you combine science, tradition and the pursuit for clinical excellence. The Red Emperor's Immortal Flame is a true clinical gem which has been passed down according to tradition from master to student. It has been adapted for general use in the clinic of Sifu Dr. Tom Turcotte, D.O.M. Its effectiveness and all benefits gained by its use are an honor to Sifu Turcotte and his teachers.
Equally well-suited for use by high-performance athletes or those suffering from debilitating arthritis, the Red Emperor's Immortal Flame is a medicinal-strength topical herbal formula. Its composition is expertly crafted to have a deep, penetrating, and warming effect. While its effects are remarkable, it should be used with diligent care. Please be mindful of the cautions, contraindications, and proper TCM pattern discrimination when using.

Cautions & Contraindications:
WARNING: FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY. Avoid contact with eyes, groin, and any mucous membranes. Always wash hands thoroughly after handling. Use only as directed. Do not use over open wounds or on damaged skin. Avoid using on red, hot, inflamed joints. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool place out of direct sunlight. Do not use if cap has been tampered with, broken, or destroyed. Do not use during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.
Differences between the Liniment and Salve:
The key difference between these two products is the beeswax which is included in the salve. The liniment has a fairly immediate, penetrating effect and is great for quick relief. It works well for massaging into affected areas during treatment or with use during cupping.
The addition of the beeswax in the salve makes it more of a slow release which works very well for home use and for chronic aching that works well with a delayed release.

As a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, I am discerning about the products I use for myself and for my patients. Having just bought Red Emperor's Immortal Flame Liniment, I must express my satisfaction! So far, I have used this liniment to assist my treatments for plantar fasciitis, piriformis syndrome, and biceps tendinitis. The smell is quite pleasant, too! The liniment has a slightly warming feeling. I suggest applying the liniment with gloves because of the powerful herbs (you don't want that accidentally in your eye). I will be purchasing this regularly. Excellent product.

I've been seeing people in the community sharing their glowing experiences with the Red Emperor's Immortal Flame and I decided to order some from Chris Volesky LAc
and try it our for myself. As usual, I was a bit late to the party... but wow. Better late than never!
This stuff is the real deal. By far the best product I've tried in some time. I tested it out on my knees and honestly, it's like I'd had an acupuncture treatment. No joke.
A big part of how I got into acupuncture is that my knees are basically shot from being a landscaper. Plus, the weather here has been cold, damp and frankly pretty shitty all around. And my knees would normally be stiff and sore, and I should be hobbling around like an old man.
But no. I'm kneeling to watch people's gait, getting up and down all day, crossing my legs and doing pretty much anything else that would have made my knees scream in this kind of weather. This isn't a paid endorsement. I'm just *that* impressed.

Put simply, I love REIF and use it daily in my clinic. This stuff is an incredible step up from the other pain relieving liniments that I've used until now. I use it a lot with my patients whose pain is from cold/blood stasis, and they love it. The smell is great. It's warming, and most importantly, they actually get the pain relief. IT's especially when you spend a couple minutes doing some tuina after you apply it. The friction and bodywork help it penetrate the tissues better. I'm also a huge advocate of self-care, so now I sell these bottles to my patients to use in between their treatments and they love it as well. All in all, it's a great investment and I'm happy someone told me about this.

The liniment is a godsend here in the cold and damp Northeast, and really helps with pain that’s worse in the winter and when it’s been rainy.
It helps my own menstrual pain and backache immensely, and I reach for it whenever I have some random pain and it knocks it out most of the time. Love it, thank you!!!

A 62 year old woman came to me with a chief complaint of arthritic pain in her fingers. It was springtime and she had been spending a lot of time in her garden pulling weeds and moving dirt in windy/rainy weather. During her appointment I applied REIF oil to her hands and fingers, then directed her to spend the next 3 minutes rubbing it in. I also encouraged her to put nitrile gloves on after application to avoid inadvertent contact with mucous membranes or eyes during her drive home. After experiencing immediate pain relief in the clinic, she left with a bottle of her own for daily use at home. At her followup visit, the hands were a nonissue and we focused on her chronic back pain.
Being able to provide explicit instructions and immediate real-time relief in the clinic helps with patient compliance when I prescribe it as a home care protocol.
