Also known as microcurrent, this treatment has been used for over twenty five years and is used to tone and tighten the muscles of the body to provide inch loss over a course of treatments. EMS is a technology that was first developed in the early 1970s for astronauts who needed a fast reshaping of muscles after returning from outer space. Since then, numerous research studies have been performed using EMS.

Bodybuilders, professional athletes, physiotherapists, and sports doctors use EMS systems to supplement their regular workout routines. Many doctors use EMS units to rehabilitate muscles following injury and to ease patients’ chronic muscle spasms and pain.

Professional Electro Muscle Stimulation equipment performs anti-cellulite treatment, inch loss; body lifts and body shaping by actually building new muscle mass. EMS has many names: Resculpting, Firming, Toning, Electrolipolysis, Isomodeling, Electro Body Shaping, Electronic Muscular Stimulation, Power Muscle Stimulation, Electro Balancing, Faradic Stimulation, Faradic Muscle Toning. All these names are correct, because they are united under the same concept: the healing and strengthening influence of electro currents applied to a human body.

EMS is a very safe and simple procedure in which pads are applied to the body and a low faradic current is passed through the skin and muscles to stimulate the nerve endings providing a muscle contraction. This stimulation creates huge energy demand in the muscles, causing them to utilize the surrounding fats as the source of energy. This process mimics the effect of a workout, 15 minutes of treatment can equal up to 48 hours of non-stop exercise. Besides firming muscles and burning fat, which results in inch loss, electro stimulation also increases metabolism, fluid circulation and oxygenation of the treated area, therefore improving cellulite.

EMS exercise cannot be classed as a cardio-vascular form of exercise as the heart rate does not increase during the treatment. Many clients find both the treatment and sensation relaxing and enjoyable. Because there is no build up of lactic acid in the muscles, there is not the discomfort afterwards that can be felt after intense exercise.
