Fast-Acting Heat Therapy is a Drug-Free, Penetrating Heat that Soothes Pain and Stiffness.

How Does Paraffin Heat Therapy Work?
Paraffin wax has a very high "heat capacity" meaning it is able to take advantage of paraffin's heat retaining capacity in a simple process called "heat transfer". Very simply, the heat that goes into melting the paraffin is released when it solidifies into a custom-fitted, warm "glove," thus transferring the heat deep into the affected joint or area. Each dip in the paraffin bath delivers a layer of fast-acting heat therapy.

Massage is the most natural form of healing and one that many of us experience daily without giving it much thought. We may not even use the word massage to describe it. If your shoulders are sore, you may ask a friend to rub them and if your feet ache, you may take your shoes off and flex your toes. And which parent hasn't has to "rub it better" when a little one gets hurt? Massage has been practiced since man first walked the planet. Formal instruction in the use of massage as a healing tool was given in many countries as early as 5000 years ago.
