What is wax bath therapy?
Warm wax bath therapy involves the application of warmed paraffin wax to the affected part of the body with a brush. It softens, moisturises and hydrates the skin while relaxing muscles and aiding the healing process of aching and sore joints. Warm wax treatments can also help to improve blood circulation and pain tolerance.
Paraffin wax has a low melting point, and as a result, it is possible to immerse your hand or foot in the wax bath without the risk of burning your skin.
We offer this therapy as a stand-alone treatment or as part of Podiatry treatment (Podiatry Plus).
