Paraffin Therapy

How Does Paraffin Wax Heat Therapy Work?

Paraffin wax has a very high heat capacity, meaning it is able to absorb and retain a great amount of heat. A paraffin wax spa takes advantage of paraffin‘s heat-retaining capacity in a simple process called heat transfer. In technical terms, heat is transferred to the core of the affected area as Paraffin wax-goes through a phase change. As it melts, the paraffin becomes a liquid and is able to retain more heat. Then, when a hand, foot, or other area is dipped into the heated bath, the phase of the paraffin that surrounds the dipped area quickly changes into a solid. The heat that is given off is called the heat of fusion.

More simply, the heat that goes into melting the paraffin comes out when it solidifies into a comforting paraffin coating, thus transferring the heat into the affected limb. Another way to look at it is the paraffin is the medium that transfers heat from the Therabath to the painful area.

At the same time, 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.

Paraffin therapy is one of the most effective methods of applying deep heat to relieve pain and stiffness. The warm paraffin also moisturizes for healthier looking, softer skin.

Therabath warm paraffin wax treatments are fast-acting, drug-free, and versatile, providing heat therapy for many different applications from arthritis joint pain relief to salon hand, foot, and facial services.

Therabath paraffin baths can be used in the home, office, hospital, or clinic …

  • to soothe chronic arthritis joint pain
  • to relax stiff muscles
  • in therapeutic massage for clients and for practioners’ self-care
  • prior to therapeutic exercise
  • during physical and occupational therapy
  • to increase range of motion
  • to relieve dryness from repeated hand-washing
  • for tired, overworked hands
  • for very dry skin
  • for salon manicures and pedicures
  • for paraffin facials
  • in spas
  • to warm cold hands, especially in winter
  • and more!
