Paraffin Wax Treatments Provide Healing Relief
Doctors have known for a long time that paraffin wax treatments provide relief from inflammation, fibromyalgia, bursitis, tendonitis and sore muscles.
These treatments were first used in the 1950s when doctors used them to help patients with arthritis pain. It wasn't until 30 years later that paraffin wax hand dips became a beauty treatment.
But its benefits are more than skin-deep.
Paraffin wax is melted and warmed to 116-147 degrees. Hands are dipped in and out of the warm wax.
As the wax solidifies, heat is transferred into the affected joints, increasing circulation and relieving pain and stiffness.
Give it a try when you stop by our Holiday Open House, 11am - 6pm, Thursday, Dec. 3.
