Therapeutic benefits of paraffin treatment

August 6th, 2018 • Posted by Lupe Guthrie • Permalink

In addition to soothing and healing the skin, paraffin treatments have many therapeutic
benefits for internal ailments as well. Paraffin wax has been shown to treat conditions
like arthritis and fibromyalgia among others. A wax treatment acts as a type of
thermotherapy, or heat therapy, that helps treat these conditions by increasing blood flow,
relaxing muscles and reducing stiffness in joints. It can also help with minimizing muscle
spasms and inflammation, and to treat sprains and pulled muscles.

Paraffin wax therapy can be particularly effective for those suffering from osteoarthritis
and rheumatoid arthritis. Regular paraffin hand treatments can help relax joints and
relieve pain in hands before physical therapy and exercise. They can also help with
lowering fluid retention and flushing toxins, which can reduce swelling
