Paraffin is a warm wax that is used to increase circulation and improve dry and dehydrated skin. Paraffin goes on warm and quickly dries to form a vacuum on the skins surface. Wonderful for moisturizing the skin, arthritis and relieving pain. Paraffin wax has a very high heat capacity, meaning it is able to absorb and retain heat. You place your hand in the paraffin in its liquid state and paraffin that surrounds the dipped hand quickly changes into a solid. The heat from the paraffin opens pores and increases circulation in the skin. Paraffin is beneficial to skin, leaving skin softened and more radiant. Service includes mitts and massage.
