Thai oil Namman Muay
Namman Muay is a Thai oil for heating massages to be carried out for preparation for a hard workout or even a Muay Thai competition.
This product is also used to sooth muscles and joint pains, induced by inflammation, trauma or simply by the heavy training that causes the well-known Doms effect.
Delayedonset muscle soreness,acronym for Delayed inglese Onset Muscle Soreness,has long been associated with an increase in physical exertion.
This is typically found by all individuals regardless of training level, and is a normal physiological response to greater efforts, or performing physical activities that you are not used to.
The pain and discomfort associated with DOMS usually peaks between 24 and 48 hours as a result of exercise, and is extinguished within 96 hours.
Generally, a greater perception of pain occurs with increased efforts, and a more frequent execution of unknown activities.
Other factors that affect DOMS formation include muscle stiffness, contraction speed, fatigue, and angle of contraction.
Now to better understand the principle of action of this product, you have to refer to a simple concept, the materials, therefore even those that make up our fabrics, are more resistant to stresses and performing when they are at certain temperatures.
This principle does not apply to 100 of materials, whether inorganic or organic, but in the case of human tissues it is essential.
That’s why a good coach always advises you to warm up before starting the real workout to maximize performance and to ward off possible injuries.
Thai oil Namman Muay to train at its best and soothing muscle aches
So there are two main uses that you can make of this product:
- as a pre-workout
- and/or post-workout.
In the first case, the heating properties will be used especially for the reasons I told you before, while in the second you will take advantage of the analgesic and anesthetical components that the different ingredients present possess.
So regardless of whether you have trauma pains, want to prevent them or just feel sore after a hard workout, this oil is what you’re looking for.
But let’s see the ingredients that have these properties:
- eucalyptus oil,is often used for massages due to its excellent aroma but especially for its properties of improving blood circulation;
- menthol, another plant-based extract with analgesic function, that is, reducing both joint and muscle pain;
- methyl willow,is a foreigner also used in cosmetics as a vasodilator to improve the blood supply in tissues.
How to use it in general
The first thing to point out is that it is an oil for external use, absolutely do not ingest, and do not bring in contact with the eyes and mucous such as the inside of the nostrils.
Apply enough oil to the affected part and massage until fully absorbed,do not cover the part you have massaged and wash your hands well after application.
Another tip to give regarding the use of the product is not to replace it with a proper heating before starting the actual workout.
It’s an accelerator for your heating but it’s not to avoid heating.
The oil if used as a heater will improve the preparatory state to the exercise and not to replace it.
So before you start doing exercises, routines, drills, sacks, sparring, etc. make sure you have warmed the muscle groups in particular.
How should a fighter compete or sparring use it?
The oil (120ml or 450ml) was born for Thai fighters before entering the ring as a muscle and joint preparation. Today it is used as a pre/post workout, sports massages, in physiotherapy treatments and many others. Contains thai natural extracts (methyl salicylate, eucalyptus and menthol) that help muscle regeneration

A bit of history without getting bored but to deepen
Once upon a time in Thailand.
The Thai firm Devakam Apothecary Hall was founded as far back as 1930 in Bangkok, Thailand.
Already at that time the owner and pharmacist Thongtos Intratat had formulated the composition of the products at the Namman Muay essential oils® with the aim of warming the athletes of his boxing academy before entering the ring.
The exact recipe for the preparation of liniment was transmitted exclusively orally from generation to generation.
So in those days the exact recipe was known only to a few people. It was not until 1960 that the first products were finally ready for commercial use.
Many believe that Namman Muay® originates from Thai boxing and its tradition,otherwise known as Muay Thai, but the reality is that it comes from Thongtos’ passion for Western boxing.
His strongest fighter, Pone Kingpetch, was the first boxer to popularize Namman Muay among fighters and boxing fans.
On April 16, 1960, he became the first boxer from Thailand to become a WBC professional boxing world champion by defeating Argentine Pascual Pérez at the Lumphini Boxing Stadium in Bangkok.
Following the fantastic sporting achievements, a statue was also erected in his honor in Hua Hin, Thailand. Pone Kingpetch’s official sporting record is 3-28-7 (F-W-L).
After his success in the boxing world, Thongtos decided to offer Namman Muay® to other sports lovers, who began to use his products with great enthusiasm.
So, in 1960, Thongtos decided to create the Devakam Apothecary Pharmacies company that marked the beginning of the historic collaboration with the world of Muay Thai.
Today it is impossible to find a gym, event or Muay Thai practitioner without Namman Muay®.
The popularity of the products grew too much to be confined to Thailand and spread all over the world.
The original Namman Muay® recipe was modified in 1960 to maximize the effectiveness of active ingredients.
Although the product is now sold all over the world, Namman Muay® is manufactured exclusively in Thailand and only with local herbs of the highest quality.

Thai oil is a great product that I recommend you use before every Muay Thai training session and when you feel your muscles sore.
If you carry it in your bag my advice and put it inside one of those diving bags because the problem of carrying Thai oil in your bag always remains the one that if the jar does not close it well or that you unscrew it in the bag you will mash the contents.
Possibly if you have tape use it to stop the cap well after you have used it.
I also recommend it for anyone who practices contact or wrestling sports because it is really very useful to climb parts sore or very stressed by the hard workouts.
If you have small/medium contractions it makes them disappear, soothes the strongest muscle aches.
The only “defect” but it depends on the tastes and for example I like it is the fragrance, a much loved characteristic but that to some can be a little too canforate but it is subjective but already after a few minutes the scent becomes very sweet, then you are a fighter so you are not going to a fashion show.
Sprinkled on the muscles before a workout, you immediately notice it heats up and avoids making efforts or movements to cold musculature, and also if after training you use the cream as I recommended it reduces the effects of muscle inflammation.
The ideal is to have oil and cream!
Especially if you live in a cold country with harsh winters can really be something that helps you in the colder season.
The cost of the product is low and it is worth a try, after I think it becomes a habit, as long as you do not start putting it in the salad too!
Good Muay Thai workout all oiled!
