Throughout the world, the Therabath Pro® Professional Grade Paraffin Wax Bath and HoMedics are the first choice of health, wellness, and beauty professionals. Paraffin therapy is one of the most effective methods of applying heat to relieve pain and stiffness. People also purchase these as a hand wax beauty kit because the warm Paraffin also moisturizes for healthier looking, softer skin. There are several Paraffin Wax Treatment Tips for Chronic Arthritis Joint Pain, Relaxed Muscles, and Increased Circulation. Using the paraffin bath, maximize the heat benefit by applying additional layers of paraffin. The heat will last longer with a thicker layer of paraffin applied.
For maximum effect, we recommend 10 to 15 layers. Prolong the treatment by using the plastic liners and insulated mitts and boots (for hands and feet), or plastic and an insulated wrap (for other areas). For Very Dry, Cracked Skin Prior to dipping your hand into the paraffin wax, apply a light coat of nongreasy moisturizer. Rub extra lotion into cuticles and dry patches. If desired, apply additional lotion after the paraffin treatment too. Apply at least five layers of Therabath paraffin. Enhance the softening effects of the paraffin by using the plastic liners and insulated mitts and boots, helping to increase circulation to the skin and absorb additional moisture from the lotion.
If using paraffin as part of a full Salon manicure or pedicure, remove old polish, shape and repair nails, and apply acrylic nails prior to the paraffin treatment. Use exfoliating scrubs prior to paraffin treatment. Wash and dry area thoroughly. Guidelines for Use The more layers of paraffin built up, the easier it is to remove the paraffin. If the area to be treated has a lot of hair, build up additional layers of paraffin. (Paraffin will not remove hair.) Dip to the same level each time (in other words, immerse to the same point with each dip) so that an even amount of paraffin covers the area to be treated and there is a thick edge to grasp when removing the paraffin. To build up thicker layers, wait a few seconds (until the shine goes away) in between dips. Try not to flex your fingers or break the “glove” of paraffin in between dips. Allow the paraffin to remain in place for at least 10 to 15 minutes. (The more layers, the longer the heat lasts.) An insulated mitt or boot will cause the heat to last even longer. Before applying paraffin with a brush, preheat the brush by letting it sit in the TherabathPRO for five minutes. Use Therabath brand paraffin because it is a high grade of paraffin that is specially formulated for precise melt point, cleanliness, and ease of use. Indications are Useful Treatments: Symptomatic relief of pain caused by medically diagnosed arthritis, bursitis, and chronic joint inflammation. Relaxes muscles, relieves stiffness and muscle spasms and stimulates circulation. May be prescribed for post-fracture or post-dislocation treatment, for sprains, strains, for restriction of motion due to scar tissue, and for other conditions for which heat is indicated.
Commonly used prior to therapeutic exercise and massage. May be prescribed in certain peripheral vascular diseases. Consult your physician if you have certain question. Contraindications Refer To Inadvisable Uses: Should not used in the presence of open cuts or wounds, inflammatory skin conditions, neoplasm (growths). Do not use in cases of peripheral vascular disease where circulation is impaired, acute inflammation, or when sensation of the extremity is reduced or absent (such as in some cases of diabetes). If there is any question of about peripheral vascular disease or decreased sensation of the extremities, consult a physician or physical therapist before using. Should not be used on areas subject to hemorrhaging or in cases involving abnormal sensitivity to heat. Discontinue use if dermatitis due to paraffin sensitivity occurs. Discontinue use if wax feels too hot or cool, which would indicate health problems with the user. Do not allow children or those with severe physical disabilities to use the device. INSTRUCTIONS FOR PARAFFIN WAX FACIAL TREATMENTS Materials needed: Therabath PRO Paraffin Wax Treatment Bath ScentFree Paraffin Wax Intensive Hydrating Cream (included in accessory kit) Paraffin Application Brush (included in accessory kit) Gauze Facial Masks (included in accessory kit) Headband Towels Cotton eye pads Small container Instructions Place the brush in the Therabath PRO® unit for five minutes (to warm up the brush). Use a headband and a towel to keep hair out of the face. Remove all makeup and thoroughly cleanse skin. Apply an even layer of Intensive Hydrating Cream, if desired. Starting at the forehead, brush a thin film of paraffin on the whole face and neck area with a natural bristle brush. The paraffin may run slightly, so keep a small towel nearby for blotting. (Hint: Put a small amount of paraffin in a cup and hold close to the face.) Take a pre-cut gauze facial mask, holding the edges with both hands. Dip the mask completely in the Therabath PRO®. Remove the mask from the bath, and allow it to drip for a few seconds. Place the paraffin-coated mask on the face, rearranging as necessary to make a good fit. Working quickly, brush three to four additional layers of paraffin on the mask, keeping the layers of paraffin as even as possible. Place cotton pads over the eyes, and relax while the paraffin goes to work. After 15 minutes, remove the mask by starting at the neck and peeling gently. Remove all paraffin. Apply a light coat of Intensive Hydrating Cream, if desired. Allow the skin to rest and cool before applying makeup. To clean the brush, let it stand in the Therabath PRO® for five minutes. Then remove and wipe clean by pulling the brush through a paper towel. INSTRUCTIONS FOR PARAFFIN WAX THERAPY FOR FEET AND ANKLES Materials needed: Therabath PRO Paraffin Wax Bath Paraffin Wax (choose from 6 scents) Sanitizing Spray (included in accessory kit) Intensive Hydrating Cream (included in accessory kit) Plastic Liners (included in accessory kit) Insulated Boots (included in accessory kit) Instructions: Cleanse the feet with warm water and soap, and then mist with Sanitizing Spray. Apply a light coat of Intensive Hydrating Cream. Slowly immerse the foot in the paraffin wax. Then slowly remove the foot and wait about five seconds (until the paraffin no longer appears shiny) before redipping. The idea is to dip in and out of the Therabath PRO®, building up layers of paraffin. Repeat three to five times. For relief of pain and stiffness, dip up to 15 times. Optional: Cover the foot with a protective plastic liner and then slip on a Thinsulate-lined boot. This retains heat for a longer treatment. Allow the paraffin to remain in place until the heat goes away. (Note: Because you will grow accustomed to the heat, it may seem like the heat is gone before it actually is.) When ready to remove the paraffin, first remove the boot (if applicable). Then wiggle the toes slightly to loosen the paraffin, and slide the paraffin off (together with the plastic liner, if applicable). Discard used paraffin and plastic liner. If desired, apply a second coat of lotion, working into cuticles and dry areas. NOTES: Humans generally perceive more heat sensation in their feet, and when you dip a foot, the paraffin may seem much warmer. Simply immerse the foot much more slowly. Because feet are larger than hands, you will displace more paraffin. Use extra care to avoid spilling. INSTRUCTIONS FOR WARM PARAFFIN WAX TREATMENTS FOR HANDS, FINGERS, AND WRISTS Materials needed: Therabath PRO Paraffin Wax Bath Paraffin Wax (choose from 6 scents) Sanitizing Spray (included in accessory kit) Intensive Hydrating Cream (included in accessory kit) Plastic Liners (included in accessory kit) Insulated Mitts (included in accessory kit) Instructions: Cleanse hands with warm water and soap, and then mist with Sanitizing Spray.

Then slowly remove the hand and wait about five seconds (until the paraffin no longer appears shiny) before redipping. The idea is to dip in and out of the Therabath PRO®, building up layers of paraffin. Repeat three to five times. For relief of pain and stiffness, dip up to 15 times to form a very thick glove. Optional: Cover the hand with a protective plastic liner and then slip on a Thinsulate-lined mitt. This retains heat for a longer treatment. Allow the paraffin to remain in place until the heat goes away. (Note: Because you will grow accustomed to the heat, it may seem like the heat is gone before it actually is.)

Then wiggle the fingers slightly to loosen the paraffin, and slide the paraffin off (together with the plastic liner, if applicable). Discard used paraffin and plastic liner.
