Khan Yaki is a perforated adhesive tape based on capsaicin which provides a long-lasting warming effect.
It increases skin temperature at the site of application and causes increased blood supply accompanied by increased redness leading to pleasant warm sensations.
Capsaicin has an anti-rheumatic and anti-inflammatory effect, so it is used as a topical pain reliever, in cases of tension and stiffness in the muscles, joints and bones.
The most common cases of discomfort are pains located in the lower back (lumbar syndrome) and stiffness of knee, hand and shoulder joints (osteoarthrosis).
Discomforts are most common in the colder part of the year, due to humidity and instable weather, so local warming of painful spots is an effective way to relieve discomforts and improve the quality of life.
