Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electromyostimulation, is an advanced treatment that tones, lifts, and refines muscles for a slimmer and a more firm look. It contracts and relaxes muscles in intervals, which tones muscles to a threshold that will not cause undesired muscle mass gain. In addition, it stimulates collagen and elastin production, which are structural proteins imperative for healthy skin. EMS sends electrical signals through the electrode pads to different areas of the body, and muscles in those areas with pads are therefore contracted. This unit is a powerful and risk-free device to stimulate the muscles. EMS is a wonderful tool for weight loss, especially when used in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise. This procedure non-invasively increases heart rate, skin temperature, and metabolic rate, which helps the body use more energy to remove fat. By triggering the body’s natural fat burning and muscle toning processes, weight loss is a very achievable result with electrical muscle stimulation. Enhancing muscle strength and endurance while aiding in the breakdown of fat.
Benefits of EMS:
● May improve joint pain and swelling
● Prevents and reverses muscle atrophy (loss of muscle mass/tissue)
● Enhances rehabilitation of muscles
● Increases range of motion for tense muscles or tendons.
● Reduces stress and discomfort
● Improves blood flow and circulation
