Therabath® Paraffin Bath treatment provides penetrating relief

Therabath Paraffin Bath Treatment

If you’ve ever dipped a hand or foot into a heated paraffin wax bath, you know how good that penetrating heat feels.

If you haven’t, you owe it to yourself – especially if you have pain or stiffness in either of those extremities. Paraffin thermotherapy is a time-tested way to relieve it.

 The effects of paraffin moist heat therapy include:

  • soothing chronic joint pain
  • loosening joints prior to exercise
  • helping muscles recover after exercise
  • relaxing stiff muscles
  • increasing range of motion
  • rejuvenating the skin

 The way paraffin bath therapy works is by simply transferring heat to the affected part of the body. When a hand or foot is immersed in a very warm liquid wax bath and then removed, the wax begins to harden around it. As it hardens, the wax gives up its heat, transferring it through the skin and into the joints to create a warm, soothing sensation that helps increase circulation and reduce inflammation.

The Therabath® Professional Paraffin Bath System

When it comes to paraffin thermotherapy products, one brand – Therabath® – has been the choice of physicians, physical therapists, and arthritis specialists for over 50 years.

Now the Therabath Professional Paraffin Bath System is making that penetrating pain-relief available to consumers in a professional-quality unit. Designed to meet FDA Class II medical device standards for safety and reliability, these hand-built paraffin baths maintain the wax at an “Always Safe” temperature of 126° to 130° F., and are engineered to provide dependable, long-lasting relief for years to come.

Each unit is also packaged with six 1-lb. bags of TheraBath Professional Refill Paraffin, a plastic grille, a lid with a joined switch, a user manual – and a 5-year limited lifetime warranty.
