If a person has a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours or until
the hot and swollen symptoms subside. Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond
poorly to vigorous heating of any kind. Vigorous heating in cases of enclosed infections, be

Finnish women use traditional saunas that do not heat the body as deeply as an infrared
sauna for only six to twelve minutes and reportedly leave at that time due to perceived
discomfort. Their usage of traditional saunas at this low level of intensity is not linked to birth

Metal pins, rods, artificial joints, or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared rays
and are not heated by an infrared heat system. Nevertheless, a person should consult his or
her surgeon before receiving such therapy. Certainly infrared therapy must be discontinued if a

product manufacturer, to be certain.
Heating of the low-back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase

Hemophiliacs and anyone predisposed to hemorrhage should avoid infrared usage or any type
of heating which induces vasodilatation, and increases the tendency to bleed.
Should any condition worsen with the use of an infrared heat system, the use of the system
should be discontinued.
