The Eco-Med EcoWax® Paraffin Wax Refill is versatile enough to be used in all paraffin baths. You will find this to be a great solution for relieving the pain of arthritis or of stiff muscles. In addition to these conditions, paraffin wax has been shown to be effective in treating the pain of fibromyalgia as well as other conditions. It is a form of moist heat therapy and therefore shares the advantages of other forms of moist heat therapy over dry heat therapy. These include deeper penetration of heat and a more pronounced response from your body’s heat receptors. Furthermore, paraffin wax helps to improve blood flow, relaxes your muscles and reduce any joint stiffness you may have.
In addition to these benefits, a paraffin wax bath treatment may also open your pores and remove any dead skin cells.
There are also cosmetic benefits to the use of paraffin baths. It also naturally moisturizes your skin and acts as a barrier in helping your body retain its natural oils. You can use it to treat calluses on your hands or feet.
