Instructions for use:

How to set up the paraffin bath unit:
To set up the unit, please refer to the instruction manual enclosed with the purchase of your paraffin bath. The “How to set up the unit” section under the  “Instruction for Use” page will provide all the necessary step-by-step procedures to begin your paraffin bath treatment. Always keep the level of paraffin wax filled to the “MIN” line marked on the inside of the tub. Wax must not exceed the “MAX” level.

How to use the paraffin treatment:

  1. Before immersing your hand, elbow, or foot, test the paraffin wax on the inside of your wrist to make sure the temperature of the wax is comfortable.
    NOTE: It is suggested you wash the area to be treated and apply lanolin-based hand lotion over the area before dipping it into the paraffin wax. This will allow the wax to be removed easier and will help moisturize the skin.
  2. Dip your hand, elbow, or foot into the melted paraffin wax and remove immediately. Wait a few seconds until the wax solidifies. Try to avoid moving your hand, foot, or elbow while wax is applied.
    NOTE: Dipping process is quick. Do not leave hand, foot or elbow in the tub. Do not soak. Dip quickly in and out.
  3. Repeat this step several times until several layers have formed,
    6-10 coatings are suggested.
  4. For longer heat treatment, place a plastic liner (provided) over the reated area and twist bag at opening. Keep paraffin wax and liner on treated area for 10-20  minutes for the ultimate experience. See Fig.1
    longer heat treatmen Fig 1NOTE: When using the paraffin bath with plastic liners on your feet, do not walk around! This may cause you to slip and fall.
  5. Peel off the wax from the treated area. If using a plastic liner, peel the plastic lining from the area being treated. Paraffin wax will peel off with liner. See Fig.2

  6. Discard used wax.
    NOTE: If you are the only person using the paraffin bath, the wax can be re-used, simply put it back into the tub to re-melt.
