Paraffin Wax Therapy Darwin

What is Paraffin Wax Treatment?

Parraffin Wax Treatment involves the use of medical grade paraffin to deliver relief for joint pain associated with arthritic joint conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. 

It is also a widely used therapeutic treatment for cracked skin and callused heels. 

At Northern Podiatrist Clinic, we have adopted a new groundbreaking treatment which ensures each treatment is single-use, hygienic and eliminates all forms of cross-contamination. 


Benefits and Uses of Paraffin Wax Treatment 

The transfer of heat from the medical-grade paraffin wax onto your feet and ankles improves blood circulation.


Due to its ability to retain heat and a form of deep heat therapy, its thermal effects are particularly soothing and effective at providing pain relief for stiffness and arthritic joint conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and associated joint problems.

Used as nourishing post-treatment care for cracked heels, this has become a new favourite treatment for many of our regular clients.


After removal of deep fissures and callused heels by your podiatrist, applying paraffin wax treatment is especially effective for softening and moisturising the skin. 


The Treatment

At Northern Podiatrist Clinic, we ensure that each treatment is single use only and sanitary. There is no double-dipping of your foot inside the wax bath which is unhygienic and causes cross-contamination.

Each paraffin pack is sealed in medical grade film which is wrapped around your foot and ankle. It heats naturally using minerals activated by salt water. After a suitable length of time, the paraffin sock is removed resulting in muscle relaxation, pain relief and well-hydrated skin.
