By signing this waiver, you agree to the following regarding our various services:
We have included everything on one waiver so that you will not need to fill out additional forms with future visits.
MASSAGE AND BODY SERVICES
Including: massage therapy and Thai massage of any modality, FAKTR, kinesiology taping, reflexology, energywork, Crystal healing, Cupping therapy, scrubs and body wraps, paraffin, and any other service we may add in the future that is performed by the licensed massage therapists or certified crystal/energy healing practitioners at Rejuvenate.
I understand that I need to advise the therapist if the pressure is too much or too little, or if I am experiencing any pain or discomfort.
I am aware that the massage and body services are provided by licensed professionals and any attempt to sexualize my massage will result in termination of the service. If this happens, I understand that I will be charged for 100% of the scheduled service cost.
I am aware that drinking plenty of water after a massage is said to help eliminate toxins from my body and that failure to do so (especially after a deep tissue massage) may cause me to feel ill or naseaus.
I am able to safely recieve massage and body services with my current state of health. If I have any concerns that my health could be adversly affected by the services I have scheduled, I agree to discuss with my doctor prior to receiving the service.
>> I have read and agree to all of the above regarding my massage, energywork, and any add-on body services
I understand that the sauna can reach 140 degrees farenheight and that any of the below contraindications will require me to use discretion for my own wellbeing. I acknowledge that severe medical conditions or pregnancy will require a note of authorization from my doctor prior to the use of the infrared sauna:
Medications: Diuretics, barbituates, and beta-blockers may impair the body's natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as amitryptaline 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/breast feeding: Pregnant women should consult a physician and get written consent before using the infrared sauna. If breastfeeding, do not use the sauna. The detoxification process can expell toxins into your breast milk.
Mentruation: Heating of the low back area during you mentrual period may temporatily increase mentrual flow.
Elderly: The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain a core body temperature. As we mature, our bodies naturally lose this capability. Guests over the age of 70 will be permitted for infrared sauna use, but at a lower temperature.
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 30 beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature.
Alcohol/Alcohol abuse: It is not advisable to "sweat out" a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person's judgement and they may not recognize a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. Guests 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 perspire: Multiple sclerosis, central nervous system tumors, and diabetes with neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impared sweating and we recommend speaking with a doctor before using the sauna.
Hempphiliacs/individuals prone to bleeding: Do not use the sauna
Fever: We recommend avoiding the use of a sauna until your fever subsides.
Join Injury: If you have a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours of injuring or until swollen symptons subside. If you have joints that are chronically hot and swollen, they 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 will not be heated by this sauna 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. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause.
>> I have read and understand the above contrainidcations. I understand that if I use the sauna and experience any pain or discomfort, that I will immediately discontinue sauna use and exit the sauna.
