Paraffin for the Hands & Feet

The area to be treated will be cleaned and a moisturizer will be applied with a massage to the area.

Paraffin wax is applied to the skin as a warm liquid wax. A plastic bag is then applied over the paraffin and the hand or foot is placed in a mitt allowing the heat from the wax to be absorbed by the skin, increasing blood circulation to the area being treated and traps the moisture from underlying layers of the skin, resulting in rejuvenating and nourishing the skin, and removing excess fluid from surrounding tissue while providing lubrication to relieve sore, painful muscle joints.

Paraffin Facial

A paraffin mask is painted on to seal in the anti-aging cream that allows for deep penetration into the underlying skin layers.

Detoxifying Cellulite Body Area Treatment & Detoxifying Cellulite Body Treatment

This intensive detoxifying treatment begins with the application of a botanical cellulite gel over the specific problem areas. Next, a thick layer of deliciously warm, hydrating herbal paraffin is applied over the gel. If having the full body paraffin treatment the gel is applied to problem areas and then paraffin is applied over the body. Cocooned in a warm blanket, one relaxes while the ingredients work their way into the skin. After paraffin is removed a moisturizer is
applied to the body.

The cellulite gel used in the treatment is a professional salon product made of the finest pure botanicals, designed to prepare the skin for detoxification. The cellulite gel penetrates into the adipose tissue where excess fats and toxins lodge and distend the cell membranes. This gel helps release fats, fluids, ad toxins that are trapped. A deep cooling gel with herbal exacts that reduces the appearance of cellulite when used with paraffin or herbal wraps for a smoother, more even skin tone.

The Detoxifying Paraffin used in treatment is medical grade paraffin that is filtered several times to ensure clarity. This paraffin is infused with herbs to naturally pull toxins from the skin.

Transports nutrients through the epidermis and penetrate fat pockets, allowing fat to pass through the cell walls for excretion. It intensifies circulation to flush excess toxins, fluids, and fats.

History of Paraffin

The use of paraffin can be traced back to the Roman Empire where they had poured hot wax over the body in preparation for massage therapy. Later the French used paraffin wax by spreading it on wounds to accelerate healing. During World War I, the British used paraffin wax therapy as a protocol to treat orthopedic disorders in the military hospitals.

The healing qualities of paraffin have been known for centuries. Today, paraffin therapy in common and widely used to treat many conditions.

It is increasingly being used in rehabilitation and therapy clinics.
