Please read the following information carefully, and if any of these conditions apply to you, you MUST declare them to the operator on the premises and discuss the matter with him or her.
SKIN CONDITIONS: Eczema- This may make a person more prone to skin infections or irritation, psoriasis or other chronic skin conditions, excluding acne and disorders of pigmentation- same complications as eczema.
CIRCULATORY DISORDERS: Heart disorders can render individuals more prone to serious heart complications from any blood infections. High blood pressure can cause light headedness and may be linked to other heart-circulation disorders. Haemophilia and other bleeding disorders may result in poor clotting and healing.
PREGNANCY: Nursing mother’s treatment must not interfere with the feeding process; also, any risk of infection for them is also potential risk to their baby. The immune response may also be affected by pregnancy; any infection may affect the unborn child.
OTHER MEDICAL CONDITIONS: Epilepsy medication may cause side effects and poor control of the condition may result in fitting during treatment.
Diabetes long term sufferers may have circulation problems that can reduce healing properties of the skin; this can result in severe infection.
Autoimmune disease or other conditions or treatments causing immune-deficiency (e.g. cancer treatments) - more prone to serious infection; HIV a risk factor for operator and medication side effects may affect healing and recovery from treatment.
