Enjoy the benefits of therapeutic warm paraffin wax applied to your area of concern on hands, feet, elbows or knees.
Paraffin wax leaves your skin feeling soothed, hydrated and looking great, especially if you have very dry skin. This treatment is an efficient way of helping to reduce swelling in joints and connective tissue and soothe the pain from arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, sprains, joint stiffness, sports related injuries and other chronic conditions that cause pain and stiffness.
The treatment also helps to increase range of motion and improve circulation by increasing blood flow to the treated area and also smooth and soften dry, chapped, rough and scaly skin. It can be helpful for chronic skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis.
A paraffin treatment uses warm oil-based wax to provide pain relief to the area of concern including sore joints and muscles.
How It Works
Paraffin treatment is a form of deep heat therapy. Liquified paraffin wax is very efficient at absorbing and retaining heat. When you dip your hand or foot, for example, into the paraffin bath, heat transfers from the wax into the affected area as the wax solidifies. The heat increases circulation and relieves pain and stiffness. To aid in skin softening, paraffin increases blood supply to the skin, while also opening pores and trapping moisture from underlying layers of skin.
Paraffin treatment can be part of physical and occupational therapy, and may be performed before therapeutic exercise. It can be beneficial for rehabilitation of sports injuries and other physical trauma.
The Paraffin treatment is 40 minutes.
