Parafango is a combination of dry mud, mostly from local sources and pure hard paraffin and paraffin oil. The mixture is melted and heated in a special unit and then applied to the problematic body parts. Heat intensity is slightly weaker than that of pure paraffin, which makes this procedure more comfortable for patients. Heat from the local wrap relaxes the muscles, acts to relax cramps, soothes chronic pain and promotes healing and tissue nutrition.
