Paraffin wax treatments are intended to moisturize and soften the skin. Paraffin wax treatments are a combined neuro-muscular treatment for the hands or feet,
using a T-Bar. Paraffin wax is unlike more common wax that is used for hair removal on the face and body. That type of wax is much more viscous and bonds to the skin.
Paraffin wax is a softer wax because of the paraffin oil component. Because it is a soft wax, it melts at a lower than normal temperature. This means that the skin can be submerged in the wax without causing burning or blistering. Parrafin wax treatments are especially good for pain-relief and for arthritis sufferers.
