Thoughts on home foot spa or paraffin baths

    • June 8, 2014 at 10:59 pm

      Someone recently told me that the paraffin foot baths such as those that are given with pedicures really helped her father so much – he had developed severe neuropathy from chemotherapy, and he found them very soothing. So I’m wondering if any of you have also found this to be helpful, or maybe some other form of a home foot spa?

      Fortunately, I had very little sensory problems with my version of CIDP. I did not try paraffin baths. That’s way too much hassle for me.

      However, I did buy more than one of those electric bath foot heat, vibrate, massager thingees at garage sales. They do feel good. But, I am too lazy to fill and then pour out the water for what little benefit I gained.

      Try it, if it works for you, great.
