Paraffin wax has a very high heat capacity, meaning it
is able to absorb and retain a great amount of heat.
A paraffin wax spa takes advantage of paraffin's heat-retaining
capacity in a simple process called heat transfer. In technical terms, heat is transferred to the core of the
affected area as paraffin goes through a phase change. As it melts, the paraffin becomes a liquid and is able
to retain more heat.
Then, when a hand, foot, or other area is dipped into the heated bath, the phase of the paraffin
that surrounds the dipped area quickly changes into a solid. The heat that is given off is called the heat of
More simply, the heat that goes into melting the paraffin comes out when it solidifies into a
comforting paraffin coating, thus transferring the heat into the affected limb. Another way to look at it is the
paraffin is the medium that transfers heat from the Therabath to the painful area.
At the same time, the heat from the paraffin opens pores and increases circulation in the skin.
This is why paraffin is so beneficial to skin, leaving skin softened and more radiant. See more information on
paraffin treatment hygiene.
