Frequently Asked Questions
Can I still have a specific area treated during the massage?
Are there any Contra-Indications to the Sauna?
Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as amitriptyline may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent, heat stroke. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their physician or a pharmacist for possible changes in the drug’s effect when the body is exposed to infrared waves or elevated body temperature.
The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature.
Individuals with cardiovascular conditions or problems such as hyper/hypo tension, congestive heart failure, impaired coronary circulation or those taking medications which might affect blood pressure should exercise caution when exposed to prolonged heat.
It is not advisable to ‘sweat out’ a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress.
