Paraffin therapy is one of the most effective methods of applying deep heat to relieve pain and stiffness. The warm paraffin wax also moisturizes for healthier looking, softer skin.
We use paraffin wax to apply moist heat to your hands or feet to ease the pain and stiffness of osteoarthritis. It is especially helpful in reducing pain and loosening up your hands and finger joints before exercise.
The heat from the paraffin opens pores and increases circulation in the skin. This is why paraffin is so beneficial to skin, leaving skin softened and more radiant.
