Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Electrical muscle stimulation, also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation or electromyostimulation, is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses.
How does this treatment work
Electrical Muscle Stimulation, or EMS, works by delivering electrical pulses which activate nerves in the body. Once activated, these nerves cause muscles to contract and then relax. The body naturally uses electrical messages to instruct muscles on what to do.

ELECTRICAL MUSCLE STIMULATION
EMS gives athletes and users a more effective muscle contraction than conventional training. EMS shouldn’t be the exclusive means of strength training unless you’re dealing with a rehab or joint wear-and-tear scenario.
EMS can help athletes stay supple and keep their bodies well-maintained when it comes to oxygen circulation, waste removal, and even getting a good night’s sleep. EMS improves muscle flexibility and joint mobility.
EMS helps by activating recovery protocols which can encourage circulatory mechanisms between the body and brain. This facilitates a more complete and expedient recovery.
