Paraffin Wax

Paraffin-WaxParaffin wax has a long history of treating a variety of physical conditions. In fact, it was used in massage therapy as far back as the Roman Empire, and, in more recent years, it’s become a popular physical therapy treatment for people with sports-related injuries. Paraffin Wax Treats dry cracked skin, moisturizes, opens pores, and increases circulation.

Paraffin wax is a common option in heat therapy treatments for people with arthritis or other rheumatic diseases – the heat helps increase blood flow and relax the muscles, which can help relieve caused by arthritis, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. Paraffin wax can even soften hardened skin caused by scleroderma, a disease in which collagen accumulates on the body — it increases the skin’s elasticity, allowing for increased movement and mobility, especially on the skin covering the hands. But the benefits of paraffin wax don’t stop there.

Because paraffin wax treatments are a form of heat therapy, they’re often used for muscle, tendon and ligament ailments. As with conditions like arthritis, they increase blood flow, improve joint stiffness and reduce pain. They’re also used to treat bursitis, tendonitis, sprains and pulled muscles. As the wax hardens, the paraffin’s natural emollient softens skin and the heat opens pores. When the cooled wax is pulled away from the skin, it also removes dead skin cells, leaving skin smoother.

Paraffin wax treatments are also beneficial to dry, cracked hands and feet. Paraffin is an excellent moisturizer because it forms a light waterproof coating over your skin that helps it retain the oils produced by your body. This “waterproofing” makes paraffin treatments great for soothing and healing dry, cracked skin — particularly winter-worn hands and feet — because it offers protection from external elements.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot-Stone-Leg-MassageHot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. Each hot stone massage therapy session promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body.

The premise behind hot stone massage therapy is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing access to deeper muscle layers. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body.

The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.

Benefits of Hot Stone Massage:
1. Provides relief from pain associated with fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and other chronic conditions
2. Decreases pain and muscle spasms
3. Reduces chronic stress and tension
4. Increases flexibility in joints, aiding in easier mobility and movement
5. Relieves pain and tension created by strained and contracted muscles

Cuticle Oil

Cuticle-OilCuticle oil is used to moisturize the cuticle, skin and nail area. It can protect the cuticle and nail against damage and improve the health and appearance of the cuticles and nails. Cuticle oil should not be used as a first-line of defense against dryness, but rather to fix extremely dry, cracked nails. Made of natural, rapidly absorbing vegetable oils, cuticle oil can also contain vitamins and citric acid.

Protect and Repair

Cuticle oil can help protect and repair damage to the cuticles. When cuticles are exposed to excessive cold, sun, chlorination, salty or soapy water or other environmental conditions that lead to dry, chapped skin, the cuticles can be also become dry, chapped, and damaged. Similarly, picking at the cuticles, typing, folding laundry, brushing hair and cooking can all cause damage.

Moisturize and Pamper

The main purpose of cuticle oil is to deeply moisturize not only the cuticle but also the skin and surrounding nail area. Cuticle oil helps increase circulation in the nail bed and can stimulate new nail growth. When cuticles or the surrounding nail are extremely dry and cracked, to the point of separation of the nail area from the cuticle, the oil provides quick repair and protection. The oil deeply moisturizes the area, repairs the nail, stops the cracking and eventually allows the nail to reattach.
