Also known as electrical muscle stimulation, this treatment is used to tone and tighten the muscles of the body. 30 Minutes of this treatment is equivalent to a 150 sit ups.
The great thing about this treatment is that the client lies on the bed and the muscles are exercised for them. In addition to that, the treatment can treat muscles in one area creating an intensive effect. So for those of us who do not enjoy physical exercise this is the answer. One important point, this treatment will not increase the heart rate therefore cannot be classed as a cardio-vascular form of exercise.
The treatment involves pads strapped to the area to be treated. The pads deliver a low faradic current into the skin and muscles stimulating nerve ending to provide a muscle contraction. The muscles will contract at regular intervals as selected by the Therapist. The treatment is comfortable, many clients finding the sensation relaxing. It is necessary to have regular treatments to reinforce the effects.
