By undertaking your physical therapy at Performance Rehabilitation, you will be assured of quality service and treatment. We test our paraffin wax to ensure that it doesn’t harm your body or skin in any way. Paraffin wax is extracted from refined crude oil and is completely non-toxic. Our extremely qualified physicians will monitor you during the process to ensure that the wax doesn’t cause any burns or blisters. The wax is also user-friendly as it doesn’t stick to the skin.
The use of warm wax has benefits such as relaxing sore and tired muscles and hydrating the skin. This has been proven to make the skin smooth and soft.
If you are suffering from pain, muscle stiffness or undergoing rehabilitation, our paraffin therapy program can help. Warm paraffin heat penetrates through the skin to the muscles. This causes tense muscles and small joints to relax. This heat also relieves swelling and improves blood flow.
