Paraffin bath

The paraffin bath is a paraffin heating device that achieves an increase in surface temperature.

The paraffin bath is a natural means of surface heat therapy and deep skin hydration. The device is plastic on the outside and aluminum on the inside, where paraffin is melted at about 51 to 53 degrees Celsius.

  • Increase in the temperature of blood and lymph circulation.
