Out of respect and consideration for your therapist and other customers, please plan accordingly and be on time.

 

Consent If I experience any pain or discomfort during the session, I will immediately inform the therapist so that the pressure and/or strokes may be adjusted to my level of comfort. I further understand that Massage Therapy should not be construed as a substitute for medical examination, diagnosis, or treatment and that I should see a physician, chiropractor, or other qualified medical specialist for any mental or physical ailment of which I am aware.

Medical conditions: Because Massage should not be performed under certain medical conditions, I affirm that I have stated all my known medical conditions, and answered all questions honestly. I agree to keep the therapist updated as to any changes in my medical profile and understand that there shall be no liability on the therapist’s part should I fail to do so. This is a Therapeutic Massage session and any sexual remarks or advances will terminate the session and I will be liable for payment of the scheduled treatment. I understand the Massage Therapist practitioner reserves the right to refuse services to me for any reason that she deems necessary.

 

Male and female genitalia and women’s breasts will not be exposed or touched at any time. Draping will be used for your privacy and comfort. Our policy requires therapists to use draping with sheets/ blankets at all times during every massage session.

IF YOU ARE HAVING INFRARED SAUNA OR MINERAL BATH PLEASE READ BELOW, AND CLICK CONSENT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.

 

INFRARED SAUNA

Please note the following listed conditions are considered contraindications for the use of Infrared Saunas. Severe medical conditions will require a note of authorisation from your doctor prior to the use of the Infrared Sauna. •

 

Medications – Diuretics, barbiturates, blood thinners 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. • Pregnancy – If you are in the early stages of pregnancy (first trimester), you are not permitted to use our sauna. • Cardiovascular Conditions – Individuals with cardiovascular conditions or problems (hypertension / hypotension), congestive heart failure, impaired coronary circulation or those who are taking medications which might affect blood pressure should exercise caution when exposed to prolonged heat.

 

Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature.

 

• Alcohol – Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt 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. Clients who appear intoxicated or inform us of alcohol consumption prior to use of the sauna will forfeit their scheduled appointment and no refund or credit will be issued.

 

• Chronic Conditions/Diseases associated with reduced ability to sweat or perspire – Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System tumours and Diabetes with neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating.

 

• Hemophiliacs – The use of infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding. • Fever – An individual who has a fever should not use an infrared sauna until the fever subsides.

 

• Joint Injury – If you have a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours after an injury or until the swollen symptoms subside. If you have a joint or joints that are chronically hot and swollen, these joints may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.

 

• Implants – Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using an infrared sauna.

 

• Pacemakers/Defibrillators – The magnets used to assemble infrared saunas can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers.

 

If you answered YES to any of the above, have you consulted with a medical practitioner about using an infrared sauna? If you do have a medical condition, please consult with your doctor if in any doubt about your safety. While our staff have been trained to know where risks might lie for certain populations, or for certain disorders, it is always recommended to double-check your particular situation with your GP.

Mineral Bath /Float

While Epsom salt is generally safe, there are a few negative effects that can occur if you use it incorrectly. This is only a concern when you take it by mouth.

First of all, the magnesium sulphate in it can have a laxative effect. Consuming it may result in diarrhoea, bloating, or upset stomach.

If you use it as a laxative, make sure to drink plenty of water, which may reduce digestive discomfort. Furthermore, never take more than the recommended dosage without first consulting your doctor.

Some cases of magnesium overdose have been reported, in which people took too much Epsom salt. Symptoms include nausea, headache, light-headedness, and flushed skin ).

Contact your doctor if you experience signs of an allergic reaction or other serious side effects.
