Who Are We?
A couple of climbers, and a Chinese Herbal Expert who created the ultimate hand salve for rock climbers.
A Theodore "Ted" Smith, PA-C, L.Ac., is an Acupuncturist, an expert in Chinese Herbal Medicine, and a Physician Assistant specializing in Integrative Medicine.
As an avid rock climber, Ted knows what rock climbers need to heal their hands after a long day of climbing. Working in collaboration with top climbers he created A-Balm to be the finest hand salve for climbers on the market today.
Ander Rockstead, is one of the top climbers who has been fundamental in developing A-Balm. Ander's aggressive climbing style has made his hands the perfect proving grounds for Ted's formulations.
From Hueco, to J-Tree, to Yosemite, to the undeveloped Colorado outback, Ander climbs it all and takes A-Balm with him everywhere he goes.
If you climb, it's only a matter of time before you meet Ander, and you'll understand why A-Balm is so fundamental to his climbing success.
