Wax Therapy


Relax into Relief with Soothing Wax Treatment by Experts

Wax therapy, or paraffin wax treatment, is a natural and effective physiotherapy modality that uses heated wax to provide therapeutic benefits. At Pain Free India Physiotherapy, we leverage this time-tested technique to offer our patients safe, rapid, and lasting relief from musculoskeletal pain and stiffness.

Wax therapy, which uses a bath of molten paraffin wax, is one of the most effective ways of applying heat to improve mobility by warming the connective tissues. Wax therapy is mainly used on your hands and is often used by hand therapists in a hospital setting along with an exercise programme.

As pioneers in providing Wax Therapy in India, we are dedicated to delivering this advanced treatment approach to help patients heal.

How Wax Therapy Works


The affected body part is carefully immersed in a molten paraffin wax therapeutic bath during wax therapy sessions. As the wax cools, it forms a pliable coating over the skin. This induces the following therapeutic effects:  

  • Increased circulation – Draws blood flow to the applied area
  • Reduced stiffness – Softens tissues and loosens adhesions
  • Pain relief – Blocks pain signals and releases endorphins
  • Accelerated healing – Improves oxygenation and cellular repair

The wax is then removed, leaving behind the therapeutic effects. The process is repeated multiple times per session as needed. Wax therapy sessions typically last 20-30 minutes.

Regular wax therapy is an excellent complementary treatment in physiotherapy, providing safe and effective pain relief and enhanced range of motion. It helps patients relax, reduces muscle spasms, and accelerates recovery in various chronic and acute conditions.
