I, __________________________________ understand that in order to receive any service at Feminine Mystique Wellness Spa that requires steam therapy the following conditions are true:
__________ I am not pregnant.
__________ I do not suffer from heart disease, high blood pressure or any cardiovascular problem.
__________ I do not have a fever and have not had one in the past 24 hours.
__________ I am not under the influence of alcohol or any non-prescription substance.
__________ I am not currently on my menstrual cycle. (For Thai steam canopy only)
__________ I am not currently undergoing any type of chemotherapy treatments.
__________ I do not suffer diabetes.
The aim of a steam treatment is to raise your body’s core temperature, which facilitates detoxification through sweating, and enhances the absorption of therapeutic herbs through the pores. The time and temperature in the canopy and/or foot sauna will depend on your comfort and tolerance for heat. Please limit your sun exposure before and after the treatment so your body has time to rehydrate and recover properly. Our treatments cannot exceed 30 minutes of actual time under the steam canopy and/or foot sauna because of health reasons. Because of safety reasons, we may refrain from providing steam therapy to those who are extremely frail, and sick. If you suffer from heart or blood pressure issues but are not experiencing a hypertensive crisis, we may start the first treatment with a 10-minute session, and increase time on subsequent sessions if blood pressure doesn’t increase during services. If you suffer from diabetes, but have it under control, we may start the first treatment with a 10-minute session, and increase time on subsequent sessions if blood pressure doesn’t increase during services. We suggest you check your glucose levels before and after to make sure steam didn’t cause an unexpected unbalance on your glucose levels.
