Immerse Your Joints and Soothe Aches and Pains

Heat treatment can be very helpful in relieving joint pain and joint stiffness, and because the heat must be applied for along time to get beneficial results, paraffin wax baths are a great way to soothe joint pain. Joint pain, and pain from arthritis can get in the way of living and enjoying day to day life. Many people suffering from joint pain seek out ways to relieve this pain, looking to paraffin wax baths in place of medication.

What is Paraffin Wax?

Paraffin wax is a colorless, odorless, soft wax that is made from saturated hydrocarbons. It can be used to soften the skin during spa treatments, but it is also used to relieve pain in joints and muscles. During the treatment, you will need to immerse your hands or feet into the wax (don’t worry, it won’t burn you) until a layer forms over the area. You will need to remove the submerged area for the layer of wax to dry and harden before placing your hands or feet back into the wax. You will need to repeat this process until you have at least 10 layers of wax formed around the area that is being treated.

Therapeutic Benefits

Paraffin wax baths is one of the most effective methods of applying deep heat to relieve pain and stiffness in joints. In addition to soothing and healing the skin, the heat from the paraffin wax bath helps to increase blood flow and muscle relaxation, which reduces stiffness in joints. It can help minimize muscles spasms and inflammation, as well as reduce fluid retention and help with flushing toxins.
