Facts About Paraffin –
Rehabilitation specialists, massage therapists, and the spa industry have endorsed paraffin therapy for its therapeutic properties. Physicians have long known that paraffin therapy is a veritable way to speed healing and soothe muscle and joint pain. In fact, the healing qualities of paraffin wax therapy have been known for centuries.
Paraffin therapy is quite common and widely used to aid in the treatment of conditions such as the following:
Arthritis, Bursitis, Eczema, Fibromyalgia, Fibrositis, Inflammation, Muscle Spasms, Overworked/Fatigued Muscles, Stiff Joints, Tendonitis.
One of the overlooked benefits of paraffin therapy is that it soothes and moisturizes the skin, opens pores, increases circulation, and promotes a sense of calm in the patient.
Since paraffin is heavy in molecular weight, it increases the blood supply to the area being treated and traps moisture from underlying layers of the skin, resulting in rejuvenated and nourished skin. Paraffin therapy reduces pain and stiffness around joints by removing excess fluid from surrounding tissue while providing lubrication.
