Warm wax treatments are approved by the Arthritis Foundation to help relieve sore, painful joints caused by arthritis. Wax treatments provide moist heat, increase blood circulation, and ease stiffness due to joint inflammation. Research has shown that warm wax treatments will provide quick short term relief that makes it easier for the affected people to then exercise which will also in turn significantly relieve the pain.
Warm Wax Treatment
Step 1 Stove Top : Place container in pot of hot water on stove top at medium heat until the wax is completely melted.
Step 2 : Allow the wax to cool until there is a film of cooled wax on the surface. Test the wax to make sure it is very warm but not uncomfortable (125 degrees Fahrenheit or more).
Step 3. The hands and body part to be treated should be clean but coated with the oil of your choice; otherwise you won’t be able to remove the beeswax.
Step 4. Using your hands coat the body part with several layers of warm semi-liquid beeswax. Leave it on for about 1/2 hour. When the wax on the body part starts to cool, dip a cloth in very hot water and apply it to the beeswax coating so as to keep it warm.
We suggest watching your favorite television program as you’re undergoing this treatment. Time flies faster that way.
Step 5. Peel off the beeswax and return it into its container. Exercise the body part with gentle exercise. Examples of good exercise could be folding and unfolding the joint. One good way to exercise the hands is to squeeze soft colored rubber balls. They fit in the palm of your hand and can be bought at dollar stores. They usually come in bright colors such as yellow or red.
We sincerely hope this treatment will help. It will relieve joint pain when combined with gentle exercise. The only complaint some people have is that it is somewhat troublesome. However making of it a habit every day while indulging in some other favorite activity can certainly make it interesting especially when you consider the pain relief it will provide. The advantage with our wax treatment is that contrary to most of the hundreds of arthritis pain relief remedies, you only need to buy this beeswax once and you can then reuse it as many times as you like.
