Paraffin Wax Therapy: A Treatment For Arthritis

As it stands, there is no immediate “cure” for Arthritis. This could be partially due to the fact that Arthritis is simply a relative term to identify a multitude of diseases that cause joint pain, stiffness, aches, and strain. On paper, Arthritis seems to be a mild disease but when the joints begin to not work properly due to immense pain or stiffness, it’s taken a lot more seriously. There are mild, moderate, and severe forms of Arthritis but they all have one thing in common; it cannot be cured and there’s no magic treatment. What might work for someone else can not work for you and that is one of the most difficult parts of managing this disease.

However, despite different treatment plans, there are homeopathic solutions that can ease the pain and discomfort of Arthritis. Besides all the topical ointments, hot and cold therapies, and long baths, there’s another treatment on the market that can soothe this irritation.

Paraffin Wax

This is a mineral heavy wax made from petroleum, unlike other wax, Paraffin Wax is soft and melts at a low temperature which makes it safe and comfortable to submerge hands or feet in. The science behind it is that the mineral oil, Paraffin, and petroleum based wax soothes joints and offers a relaxing solution for baths or “dips”. The combination of petroleum and mineral oil also softens the skin, which can also treat severe Arthritis.

By using a Paraffin Wax Warmer, submerging feet or hands is a simple, quick treatment to gain some relief from poor circulation, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and pain. The warmer keeps the wax at the desired temperature to safely receive proper therapy, which is a very convenient way to relieve the aches and pains brought on by Arthritis.

The best way to utilize this treatment is by also using a pair of Paraffin Wax Warmer Terry Mitts, this product aids in heat retention and allows for a longer therapy without having to submerge your hands in the wax warmer. This can be helpful when wanting to enjoy a movie or even a bath, it allows proper movement without having to compromise treatment. These mitts are best used with disposable liners to improve cleanup.

One last thing, if investing in a Paraffin Wax Warmer, there will also needs to be refills. This is a specific type of wax used for hand and feet therapy and it cannot be supplemented with regular wax. Paraffin Wax Refills are convenient, low priced, and safe to use in any Paraffin Wax Warmer.

Don’t stop searching for a treatment that’s right for you, our bodies are all different and react to treatments and therapies differently. The most creditable, safe, and helpful sources of treatment can be found in natural therapies such as wax baths, hot/cold compresses, and a healthy dose of joint exercise for a proper therapeutic experience.
