The History of Paraffin Wax in Podiatry
Paraffin Wax treatments were introduced during the First World War by a French Physician, but can be traced back to biblical times and the Roman Empire.
The treatment benefits multiple ailments including plantar fasciitis, joint pain, arthritis and skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
How Wax Works
The wax helps to moisturise and soften the skin while providing a therapeutic and healing effect to sore and aching joints. Increased tolerance to pain and muscle relaxtion can also make it particularly beneficial for those suffering from arthritis and rheumatic pain.
Paraffin Wax heat therapy increases blood flow, sweat and sebum production thus allowing beneficial nutrients to be drawn to the skins cells that rejuvenate the skin.
In the prestigious Elizabeth Arden health resort clients were offered ‘Wax baths’ for their whole body.
Wax Therapy In Foot Care
Warm paraffin wax has been used as standard foot care in podiatry for many years but became less popular (as in the beauty industry) due to clinical cross contamination.
Traditionally, the baths were difficult to sterilise and could incubate bacteria.
