Experience the many benefits of relaxing in our Chromotherapy Infrared Sauna followed by an exhilarating immersion in our Cold Plunge.
Contrast therapy, involving alternating between hot and cold treatments, is believed to offer several potential benefits:
1. Improved Circulation: Alternating between hot and cold temperatures may enhance blood flow, promoting circulation and nutrient delivery to tissues.
2. Reduced Muscle Soreness: Contrast therapy is often used to alleviate muscle soreness and stiffness, aiding in post-exercise recovery.
3. Inflammation Reduction: The alternation of hot and cold treatments may help in reducing inflammation and swelling, especially in the case of injuries.
4. Enhanced Recovery: Contrast therapy is thought to expedite recovery by promoting the removal of metabolic waste products from tissues.
5. Joint Health: The combination of hot and cold treatments may contribute to joint flexibility and alleviate discomfort associated with certain joint conditions.
6. Stress Relief: The contrast between hot and cold temperatures can have a relaxing effect, potentially helping to reduce stress and tension. It's important to note that while many individuals find contrast therapy beneficial, individual responses may vary. Consulting with a healthcare professional, especially in the case of specific medical conditions, is recommended.

Infrared Sauna Contraindications and Waiver
The use of infrared saunas may have many health benefits; however it is important that you fully
understand how to use the sauna and gradually introduce your body to the infrared sauna therapy to
produce the best results. In all situations, hydration is a requirement for sauna use. Drinking filtered
water is recommended before and after sauna use. Self-treatment of any disease with an infrared sauna
is not recommended without direct supervision of a certified physician. If anything listed below applies
to you, please consult your physician before using an infrared sauna.
MEDICATIONS __________ Initial 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 infrared waves or elevated body temperatures. Some medications including diuretics,
barbiturates, and beta-blockers and others 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.
CARDIOVASCULAR CONDITIONS __________ Initial 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 extreme 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 systems. If
using a pacemaker or defibrillator, please discuss risks involved with your physician.
ALCOHOL __________ Initial Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “sweat out” a
hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore it might not be realized when
the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be
further increased by heat in the infrared sauna.
CHRONIC CONDITIONS __________ Initial Various chronic conditions including Parkinson’s, Multiple
Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors, and Diabetes with Neuropathy are associated with impaired
sweating. Please consult a physician before use if you have a chronic condition.
JOINT INJURY / ENCLOSED INFECTIONS __________ Initial If you have a recent joint injury, it should not
be heated for the first 48 hours after injury or until the hot and swollen symptoms subside. If you have
joints that are chronically hot and swollen, these joints may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any
kind. Vigorous heating maybe contraindicated in cases of infections.
ELDERLY _________ Initial 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. If elderly, operate at a
lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
PACEMAKERS / DEFIBRILLATORS _________ Initial The magnets used to assemble our saunas can
interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible
risks this may cause.
IMPLANTS __________ Initial Please consult your physician if you have metal pins, rods, artificial joints,
silicone prostheses or any other surgical implants. ** DO NOT USE the infrared sauna if you are Pregnant
or have Hemophilia, Fever, or Heat Insensitivity. ** In the rare event that you experience dizziness, pain
and/or discomfort, immediately discontinue sauna use. WAIVER AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY: It is not
advisable to use an infrared sauna under certain medical conditions and it is recommended that you
consult a physician before first use or if questions/concerns arise. It is solely your responsibility to
monitor your body/reactions and determine if it is appropriate to use the infrared sauna. You alone are
responsible for your safety and well-being. I have read the above statements and understand the use of
an infrared sauna may involve a physical and/or mental risk. By signing below, I assume the risk and
responsibility for any and all injuries or damages arising from use of the infrared sauna and hereby
waive and release Cascades Wellness Center and their staff of any and all liability.
