Dr. Roby Taylor Myers, Owner & Lead Chiropractor at East Coast Elite Chiropractic-Sports Performance & Rehab
I appreciate all the support over the last 2 years while setting up my new practice. I have had successful results with over 90-95% of my patients with disc injuries/ neck/ back pain in utilizing the DTS table as a stand alone treatment. I will be honest- it was a tough decision initially because of the financial investment/ commitment while I was starting practice. I am glad that I decided to integrate the DTS into my practice from the start because of the referrals and the wonderful response from my patients. Thanks again for all your help over the last 2 years and continued support.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What Is Paraffin Wax Therapy?
Paraffin wax therapy, also called paraffin wax treatments, is a form of heat therapy that involves the application liquified paraffin wax to different body parts. Paraffin wax provides heat therapy that can significantly help relieve chronic and acute pain.
Paraffin wax therapy is one of the most effective methods to improve mobility by warming the body's connective tissues. It plays a significant role in clinical settings to alleviate pain and stiffness in patients with rheumatoid and osteoarthritis.
Paraffin wax therapy works by improving blood circulation, relieving joint stiffness and relaxing the muscles. Paraffin wax treatment for pain relief also doubles as a moisturizer, softening the skin.
Which Condition Can Benefit Most From Paraffin Wax Treatment?
Most commonly, paraffin wax therapy is used as the cornerstone of spa treatment like pedicures and manicures offering a soothing experience and intense moisturization. Since it also offers pain relief in stiff joints and muscles, paraffin products are suitable for managing arthritis.
Other conditions that benefit from paraffin wax therapy include;
- Dry skin disorders, for example, eczema
- Muscle pain and joint stiffness due to fractures, ligaments, sprains, strains, and other minor surgical conditions.
What Is The Best Way To Melt Paraffin Wax?
The best way to melt paraffin wax is by use of a paraffin warmers, an invaluable paraffin treatment accessory. Remove nail polish before initiating the process. In addition, you should wash your hands thoroughly and ensure they are dry with a lint-free towel. Follow the following steps to melt the wax:
- Add approximately four pounds of paraffin wax products to the paraffin warmer.
- In some instances, you will need to add one cup of mineral oil into the wax. Consult your instructions.
- When the paraffin wax melts completely, remove the warmer from the heat source. Carefully transfer the melted wax into a greased plastic container.
- Allow for some time until thin skin forms at the top of the wax.
- When the wax temperature is 125°F (51.7°C), it's ready for use.
Can You Reuse Paraffin Wax?
Paraffin wax is typically left on your skin for approximately 15 minutes before peeling off. Never reuse wax after it has been on the skin as it contains other impure materials. In busy clinics, melted wax remaining in the paraffin wax warmer should be replaced at the end of every day or when debris becomes visible at the bottom of the container.
How Often Should I Clean My Paraffin Wax Warmer?
Best practice for busy clinics includes cleaning your paraffin wax warmer after every 25 treatments or the end of each day. Cleaning the paraffin wax warmers regularly eliminates the paraffin wax residue, debris, and dust. The routine also prepares you to start a fresh paraffin wax with the next melt. The paraffin wax should burn cleanly in the paraffin warmer without mingling with debris.
Can I Add Essential Oils To Paraffin Wax?
Yes, most essential oils can be used in unscented paraffin wax; however, not all essential oils are suitable for direct contact with the skin. Be sure to check the specifics of each oil before adding it to your paraffin bath. Some paraffin wax supplies are pre-scented with soothing oils like lavender.
How Does Paraffin Wax Therapy Stack Up Other Forms Of Heat Therapy?
Paraffin wax for joint pain is tested and proven safe and hygienic for body use. Its effectiveness is similar to hot & cold packs and infrared units.
For those with normal skin, paraffin wax can be applied at low temperatures without causing a reaction. However, you should avoid paraffin wax therapy if you have sensitive skin. In some instances, paraffin wax has been shown to cause heat rash in some individuals. Heat rash develops with small red bumps on the skin that feel uncomfortable and itchy.
There are different forms of heat therapy, but paraffin wax therapy is certainly equally effective. Like other heat therapy options it increases local blood flow, reducing joint stiffness, and relaxing the muscles. Some experts believe that paraffin wax goes even further, minimizing muscle spasms and inflammation.
