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.

BENEFITS

ELECTRICAL MUSCLE STIMULATION

Strength Training 

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.

Improved Flexibility

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.

Quicker Recovery

EMS helps by activating recovery protocols which can encourage circulatory mechanisms between the body and brain. This facilitates a more complete and expedient recovery.
