The HoMedics Paraspa Plus Paraffin Bath is a low cost hot paraffin wax therapy bath that I use. I learn about the usefulness of these wax baths in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome hand therapy, used them at their facility, and decided to buy my own. TherabathPRO makes a professional grade model that my hand therapy clinic has. They are helpful in treating RSI or carpal tunnel syndrome.
I use it about 3 times a day for hand therapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or RSI and it helps warm my hands and improve circulation and muscle extensibility.
- Dip your hands in the warm wax about 5 times
- Place your hands in the included plastic bag
- Wrap your hands in a blanket, towel, or even a warming pad to provide some additional insulation.
- Remove the wax when everything has cooled down
It is messy, so try to keep some material to protect your counter tops, around the paraffin wax bath unit.
A lot cost paraffin refill is the Therabath Refill Paraffin Wax – ScentFree, 6 lbs helps for carpal tunnel syndrome.
Heating pads are also useful in battling carpal tunnel syndrome or RSI. They help ease the pain. I limit exposure to about 10 minutes to prevent swelling due to excessive heat.
