You may already be familiar with paraffin wax treatments at spas and nail salons; it’s a luxurious addition to a manicure or pedicure. But you may be surprised at what else paraffin wax is used to treat.
Paraffin Wax Treatments are luxurious treatments that are intended to moisturise and soften the skin and also provide a therapeutic and healing heat to sore and aching joints, making it particularly beneficial for those suffering from arthritis and rheumatic pain. Because it is a soft wax, it melts at a lower than normal temperature. This means that the skin can be coated without causing burning. The treatment is particularly popular in the winter when people experience seasonal dry skin, cracked heels and hands.
The procedure (for hands and feet)
Hands or Feet are thoroughly covered in the paraffin wax using a brush, when the paraffin wax sets, it retains the heat and this warms, soothes and moisturises. The hands or feet are placed in single use socks or gloves and then into special mittens or booties to retain the warmth and intensify the moisturising process.
After 15 minutes the paraffin wax is removed and the procedure is completed with a light massage and the application of a luxurious cream or oil.
The procedure (for Back, Neck & Shoulders)
During your treatment your back, neck and shoulders are covered with a lovely thick coating of paraffin wax and covered with a plastic wrap. This process retains the heat of the paraffin wax ensuring your body receives the full benefits from this indulgent treatment.
Next your body is covered by a large fluffy towel to again retain as much heat as possible and intensify the moisturising process.
After 10 minutes the paraffin wax is removed and you receive a 20 minute back massage using luxurious moisturising cream or oil.
N.B. This treatment is not suitable if you have diabetes or Raynauds syndrome.
