Ember Sauna Information and Terms and Conditions


The odor from a smoker’s sweat permeates the sauna and soaks into the wood making it difficult if not impossible to remove.

Drink plenty of water before, during and after your session. Adding electrolyte mix is recommended.

If any of the items listed below apply to you, be certain to consult with your physician before using the FIR sauna:

  • Medications
  • Fever
  • Alcohol
  • Cardiovascular conditions
  • Pregnancy/Menstruation
  • Chronic Conditions
  • Implants/Artificial Joints
  • Recent Joint Injury
  • Lotions/Chemicals

Exposure to infrared waves or elevated body temperature can possibly change the effect of prescription drugs. Additionally, some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke. Some medications may lead to dizziness. Check with your personal physician or pharmacist before using the sauna.

Do not use chemicals or lotions prior to your session. These items may block pores and affect perspiration.

Individuals who have a fever should not use the sauna until fever subsides. Pregnant women should consult their physician before using an infrared sauna. Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual cycle may temporarily increase their menstrual flow.

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.

Cardiovascular Conditions/Chronic Conditions
Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat outside via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. Those with cardiovascular conditions should take caution when using the sauna. Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating.Individuals with a history or heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity or diabetes should have their blood pressure monitored before and after each session.

Implants/Artificial Joints
Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, please consult your physician prior to using the sauna.

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

*If at any time during your session you feel dizzy or light headed, exit the sauna and inform spa personnel immediately.
