Questions for self-control.
If you have positive answers to any of the questions below, you must consult with experts (pharmacists, Physicians e.t.c.) before the use of the sauna. Hot Rock Spa will not charge you for the procedures which you ordered in advance but were forced to reject for health reasons. Your health, safety, and satisfaction are our first priorities..
- Are you pregnant?
Pregnant women should consult a physician before using the sauna because fetal damage can occur with a certain elevated body temperature
- Are you taking medications?
Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician or a pharmacist for possible changes in the drugs effect when the body is exposed to high temperature. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Some over the counter drugs such as antihistamines may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
- Do you have Diabetes with Neuropathy, Parkinson’s, MS or Lupus?
Parkinson’s, MS, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating.
- Cardiovascular Conditions:
a. Do you have unstable Angina?
b. Have you had a recent Heart Attack?
c. Do you have Severe Arterial Disease or any other cardiovascular conditions/problems?
Individuals with cardiovascular conditions or problems (hypertension/ hypo tension), congestive heart failure, impaired coronary circulation or those who are taking medications, which might affect blood pressure, should exercise extreme caution when exposed to prolonged heat. Heat stress increases cardiac output, 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.
- Do you sweat excessively? An individual that has insensitivity to heat should not use the sauna.
- Do you have a recent 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 hot and 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. Vigorous heating is strictly contra-indicated in cases of enclosed infections be they dental, in joints or any other issues.
- Do you have any allergies for any plants?
Please, note we use natural wigs and with leaves for leaf massage. We also use oil based liquids for aromatherapy.
- Menstruation. Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase their menstrual flow. Some women endure this process to gain the pain relief commonly associated with their cycle whereas others simply choose to avoid sauna use during that time of the month.
- Alcohol. Did you use alcohol for the last 24 h.?
Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “Sweat Out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore they may not realize it when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress.
An individual that has a fever should not use the sauna
- Pacemaker/ Defibrillator
The magnets used to assemble our units can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause
