PARAFFIN Body Treatment /Back /
Paraffin Wax Treatment promotes relaxation and relieves pain and stiffness. The heat reduces tension and improves the extensibility of muscles and increases the flexibility of ligaments and tendons. The treatment also increases the circulation due to dilation of the blood vessels which speeds up the healing process. Heat also soothes sensory nerves relieving pain. Paraffin wax can also minimize muscle spasms and inflammation as well as treat sprains.

The therapy can also be good to beautify rough and dry hands and feet.
Paraffin wax is tested in a lab to make sure it’s safe and hygienic to use on the body. It’s completely natural and has a low melting point, which means it can be easily applied to the skin at a temperature low enough not to cause burns or blisters.
However, if you have very sensitive skin, paraffin wax may cause heat rash. Heat rash results in small red bumps on the skin that can be itchy and uncomfortable.
You should not use paraffin wax if you have:
- poor blood circulation
- numbness in your hands or feet
- any rashes or open sores
