Warm Wax Therapy is a therapeutic paraffin wax treatment that uses heat to increase blood flow, relax muscles and increases hydration in the skin. There is also the benefit of improved comfort for painful feet.
Though it is a simple form of treatment, heat therapy relieves pain and muscle stiffness. When applied to the feet, heat helps dilate blood vessels, encouraging blood to the area, flushing out toxins and other products. Blood also brings oxygen to the area, helping to repair soft tissues, gentle massage encourages improved muscle tone, thereby relaxing muscles.
The treatment is intended to moisturise and soften the skin while providing a therapeutic, soothing and healing effect to sore and aching joints. The wax contains essential oils of orange, bay, lavender, frankincense and myrrh. These oils provide antiseptic and anti inflammatory benefits and help to moisturise the skin.
This treatment is particularly beneficial for those suffering from arthritis, rheumatic pain or aching joints, but can be enjoyed by anyone feeling the need to relax, destress and enjoy a little pampering.
Warm wax is applied by brush from individual pods of wax offering a relaxing, hygienic experience with no chance of cross infection from multi-use.
