What makes Paraffin so Effective and Enjoyable

Paraffin has a tremendous thermal capacity, meaning that it absorbs and retains large amounts of heat.

As the paraffin melts, it absorbs energy through a simple thermodynamic process called heat transfer.

In its liquid state, paraffin is a tremendous reserve of heat.

During the treatment, the heat contained in the paraffin is transferred to the skin stimulating its natural processes, self-hydration and detoxification.
