Therapeutic paraffin hand dips

Paraffin wax heat therapy bath

Get soothing, fast-acting heat relief of minor aches and pains. Since 1962, physicians, physical therapists and arthritis specialists have recommended the Therabath Paraffin Therapy Bath because paraffin therapy is one of the most effective methods of applying heat to relieve pain. Fast-acting paraffin therapy is a drug-free, penetrating heat that soothes pain and stiffness. It is effective on arthritis; inflammation; joint stiffness; muscle spasms; sports injuries; and dry, cracked skin.

How does paraffin heat therapy work?

Paraffin wax has a very high heat capacity, meaning it is able to absorb and retain a great amount of heat. The Therabath takes advantage of paraffin's heat-retaining capacity in a simple process called heat transfer. The heat that goes into melting the paraffin is released when it solidifies into a custom-fitted, warm "glove," thus transferring the heat deep into the affected joint or area. Each dip in a Therabath delivers a layer of fast-acting heat therapy.

This service is complimentary when receiving a Régenique treatment, or it can be purchased separately.
