What is EMS? Electronic Muscle Stimulation
Electronic Muscle Stimulation or EMS is a method of stimulating muscles using light and painless electric impulses. It has been in development for over 100 years for the rehabilitation of patients after injury and illness to allow muscle building with limited movement. This was later applied to professional sports to allow elite athletes to improve their performance, now it has been combined with personal training and effective exercises for the best results to date.
How does it work?
It replicates the natural principal of our central nervous system sending electrical impulses to control our muscle action and applies it to training for fitness and health.
Electrodes, in a comfortable and easy to use body suit, activate more than 300 muscles simultaneously, including the hard to reach deep muscle layer which protects our skeleton and improves stability. Whilst this is happening a personal trainer guides you through low-impact exercises for highly effective training results in a short time. Your personal trainer controls each muscle group and the intensity of training according to your individual goals.
It is so effective as 90% of the muscles are activated simultaneously and the muscle contractions are more intense than can be achieved through exercise alone. The agonist and antagonist muscles work simultaneously and deeper muscle groups are stimulated. Research shows that a 20 minute muscle stimulation training session (EMS) is more effective than a 90-120 minute conventional session of weight training.
