Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) With Diathermy Heat
EMS stimulates natural exercise safely and effortlessly to create slenderness, inch-loss, firmness and strength. The treatment also stimulates the body's natural fat burning and toning process helping to give you a body that is not only lean and firm but healthy too! With various options available we can target specific areas of the body (working several areas at one time...example: arms, abs, hips, butt and thighs). Stimulation from the electrical current also helps reduce cellulite. With different toning settings and programs, each individual can get a custom treatment tailored to them for the most effective treatment and results.
EMS technology offers many other health benefits such as detoxification by helping the lymphatic system drain, reducing water retention in the body, brings oxygen to the skin for a healthier tone and appearance, and helps repair damaged muscles by restoring muscle strength and tone. Pain management has also been a favoured benefit. For optimal results sessions are 30 minutes and should be done 2 to 3 times a week for a minimum total of 10 sessions.
Diathermy Heat treatments apply deep tissue heating to the areas that have restricted blood flow, allowing the metabolism rate to rise. The heat softens the tissue and it begins to break up the fat allowing it to be released back into the blood stream as calories so it can be burned up as energy. Diathermy heat is effective in cellulite reduction as well as easing muscle pain. The heat helps the muscles to relax allowing the EMS to work more effectively.
Whole Body Vibration ( WBV )
Whole Body Vibration Therapy is a user friendly, time efficient and safe exercise technique that can be achieved in just 10 minutes a day, 3 times a week. Gentle vibrations move throughout the entire body to stimulate muscles and bone cells, burn fat, lose weight and restore neuromuscular balance. The machine produces a vibration through which energy is transferred to the whole 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.
Vibration training is backed by 40 years of research and was originally designed to safely and effectively treat bone and lean muscle mass (much like why EMS technology was designed) loss in astronauts who spent considerable time in a weightless environment.
Far Infrared Therapy
Infratherapy is used to treat stress and chronic pain, as well as to eliminate cellulite, lose weight and repair damaged tissues. This therapeutic method, using infrared waves, have been recommended and noted by health experts for its many benefits. The strength of this technology is the invisible radiation that safely allows a resonance of muscle tissue, increases cellular function, blood circulation and improves the cardiovascular and immune systems. The infrared wave penetrates up to 4 CM in depth. The body is stimulated directly by the heating radiation without increasing the ambient temperature. The warming occurs in the in the heart of the muscle tissue and causes perspiration up to three times higher than in traditional saunas. Used at a controlled temperature for 30-45 minutes, infratherapy promotes perspiration while increasing the heart rate, blood and lymphatic circulations. As a result this therapy encourages toxin elimination and caloric loss.
Weight loss: A 30-45min session causes a 600-900 loss in calories, equivalent to a 30 minute run at a marathon runner speed.
Cellulite reduction: The thermal effect acts on the superficial fat helping to stimulate metabolism, reduce/eliminate cellulite and fatty deposits.
Detoxification: During the session blood flow increases and the perspiration helps to eliminate toxins.
Boosts immune system: The infrared thermal effect creates an artificial fever, which activates the immune system. This process strengthens the body's resistance to disease and promotes general health.
Muscle pain relief: Infratherapy has antispasmodic, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory effects. It is beneficial for muscle, articular and rheumatic pain relief, fibromyalgia etc.
Reduces stress and fatigue: Infrared relaxes the body's muscles, reducing tension and stress.
