We immediately opened the box, read the directions, and heated the wax. The other girls were so enthused, that they too joined in with dipping a hand.
I had to laugh, as we all wanted to take photos, but we all had one wax covered hand in a plastic bag.
We've only used it for one treatment, so it's too early to tell if it's working for us. My left hand continues to hurt yet, even after one treatment.
As for buying a home unit, I do need to warn folks, that the wax does heat pretty hot. You dip your hand several times, and the very first time is a bit challenging.
Update: I had to cut one more wine cork in half with a small saw, and this required holding it with my left hand. I was able to cut it without losing my grip (which happened prior to my hand therapy). Although my hands are sore, not losing my grip on the cork, gives me hope that the wax heat treatments will work.
