FAQ

Electric Muscle Stimulation

  1. How does it work?

    An electric pulse contratcs and relaxes the muscles excersicing them.  

  2. Does it hurt and what does it feel like?

    There is no pain or discomfort involved. In fact, many clients find the treatments to be very relaxing.  You will feel a tingling sensation to begin with and gradually as the intensity increases you will feel the targeted muscles contracting.  It is not unusual to find that it feels like a massage. 


  3. Is it safe?

    EMS is very safe and there are no negative side effects.. There are few contra-indications and although in some cases a physicians consent may be required, EMS is otherwise safe and effective for most people of all ages and sizes.  

  4. How many times a week can I come?

    Ideally you want to do three treatments a week for a total of 10 treatments. For minimum results two treatments a week are recommended.  In some circumstances if you already have a vigorous fitness plan then coming once a week will be suffucient to enhance your current regimen. 

  5. How many treatments do I need?

    For minimum lasting results it is recommended you do at least ten sessions 2-3 times a week. 

  6. How long do the results last?

    With EMS you are using 100% of the targeted muscle fibers as opposed to half that when you're doing regular exercise. Consequently, results from EMS will last longer then from results you'd get  from doing regular active exercise. As long as your weight has remained consistant, your results will last 6 to 8 months after doing 10 treatments. If you maintain some for of fitness routine, your results can maintain indefinitely. 

  7. What areas and how many can I work on?

    You can work on most areas of the body including but not limited to the abdomen, glutes, thighs and arms. 

    You may work on 2 to 3 areas at once.

    It is suggested that the areas you pick to target remain the same for all 10 treatments to acheive optimum results. 

  8. What results will I see?

    Results vary per individual and can far exceed the typical expected results. Common results after the completion of 10 treatments (as long as weight has remained constant) vary from 1/2 inch to 2 inches or more off the rib cage, waist and abdomen each and generally 1 pant size down and 2 pant sizes down after 20 treatments. 

    Other benefits of EMS you will notice is muscle tone and strength, improved circulation, better lymphatic drainage and pain relief.

  9. Will I feel soreness after?

    No. With conventional exercise methods your muscle release lactid acid to the blood stream causing you to feel stiff and sore. EMS treatments do not require glucose which is usually utilized during exercise. This is a benefit as the body burns surrounding fat cells without decreasing glucose levels and prevents the build up of lactid acid.  What you may notice is  firmness.

  10. I recently gave birth, will this help?

    Absolutely! EMS is very effective in helping the body bounce back quicker post child birth. Please allow 6 weeks after birth or 6 months after a caesarean to start treatments. 

  11. Will I lose weight?

    Muscle consumes more calories per day then fat. The more muscle you build the more your calorie consumption goes up and your weight loss will be porportionate, keeping mindful that your diet remain balanced and appropriate. Weightloss will be greater if you include cardio into your routine as the EMS will work to tone the muscles and will make the weightloss process more efficient. 

  12. Can this completely supplement going to the gym?

    Since EMS stimulates the muscles and not your respitory or cardiovascular systems, it does not completely replace regular exercise. It enhances your fitness regimen greatly but it is advised that you still perform regular exercise and especially cardio.  The more you build your core and over all muscle strength the easier you will find it i to do your gym and other exercises.

Infratherapy

  1. What is infratherapy?

    Infratherapy is a therapeutic method used for detoxing the body, easing chronic pain and facilitating weight loss. It uses invisible radiation to penetrate up to 4cm in depth without affecting ambiant temperature. The warming occurs in the heart of the muscle tissue thus causing perspiration up to three times higher than what traditional saunas would. Set at a controlled temperature, the infratherapy will promote persipration which will increase heart rate, blood and lymphatic circulation consequently eliminating toxins from the body and burning calories.

  2. What are the benefits of infratherapy?

    Infratherapy will provide pain relief for muscles and joints, will boost the immune system, reduce cellulite, facilitate weight loss, detox the body, and help restore sleep and relieve stress.  

  3. Can anyone use the infratherapy heat?

    Infratherapy is safe for most people. Those who should avoid it are women who are pregnant, people on hypertension medication and people who have suffered recent injury at least until syspmtons of swelling and inflammation have diminished.

Whole Body Vibration

  1. What is Vibration Exercise?

    Vibration exercise is a Proven Science. The machine produces a vibration through which energy is transferred to the body. This mechanical stimulus produces a stretch reflex which, depending on the frequency, results in rapid and intense muscle contractions 30-50 times per second.

     

  2. What is the science behind whole body vibration?

    The Stretch Reflex:

    The movement of the vibration plate simulates the body's natural 'stretch reflex' (Tonic Vibration Reflex). Without thinking about it, your body responds with a strong involuntary muscle contraction. With the DZT Ultra VibeTM, these strong muscle contractions can be repeated at a rapid rate. At a frequency of 20 to 50 times a second, our machines can produce up to 3000 contractions in 1 minute!

     

    Nearly 100% Muscle Recruitment:

    Due to its involuntary effect on muscle contraction, nearly 100% of the muscle fibers are recruited. Compare this to conventional training where there is only on average 40% muscle recruitment. This benefits the rehabilitation patient looking to add stability and strength to all muscles around their joints, to the athlete looking to maximize strength gains.

  3. What are the benefits of whole body vibration?

    Benefits include:

     

    • Increases fat burning
    • Improves training quality and effectiveness
    •  Improves flexibility, mobility, strength and coordination
    • Reduces stress on foints
    • Restores hormonal balance and increases HGH growth hormone as well as testosterone levels in
    • men
    • Speeds up metabolism
    •  Reduces stress
    • Revitalizes
    • Improves balance
    • improve appearence of skin quality
    • Reduces inflammation in the body
    • Detoxification
    • Promotes better blood circulation and introduces more oxygen into the blood stream

     

     

  4. Are there any reasons why one should not do whole body vibration?

    • Pregnancy
    • DVT / Thrombosis
    • Cardiovascular diseases
    • Recent wounds from an operation or surgical intervention
    • Synthetic/artificial joints
    • Acute hernia / discopathy / spondylolysis
    • Severe diabetes
    • Epilepsy
    • Acute diseases / inflammation processes
    • Severe migraines
    • Pacemakers
    • Carrying recently fitted IUDs, coils, metal pins, bolts or plates
    • Tumors
    • Retinal problems/dysfunction
