What is High Intensity EMS Body Sculpting?

For many people , getting a slimmed, toned physique can feel impossible. Even after putting in countless hours working out at the gym and making adjustments to a diet, there’s often stubborn fat that seems like it wants to stick around for the long haul.

As a spa owner, you have the opportunity to transform the way your clients look and feel about their bodies. If you’ve noticed people complaining that lifestyle changes have given minimal results, and that invasive plastic surgery isn’t an option, it’s time to introduce high intensity EMS body sculpting to your spa packages.

This isn’t a weight loss procedure, but rather a cutting edge body contouring treatment that uses electromagnetic energy to improve muscle building and fat burning.  The treatment can help strengthen, tone and firm specific areas of your clients’  bodies, helping  them feel more comfortable and confident.

Are you interested in adding high intensity EMS sculpting to your spa services? Here’s what you need to know about High-Intensity Electromagnetic Technology (HIEMT) and how EMS body sculpting can benefit your clients. 

What is High Intensity EMS Sculpting?

High intensity EMS body sculpting is a non-invasive option that targets the muscles and contours the body - a significant process that requires virtually no downtime.

"It uses electromagnetic energy to get the muscles to contract in the area you're treating." Dr. Arash Akhavan shared with Town and Country magazine. "EMSculpt  takes over that process to a much stronger extent than our bodies are able to," he continues. "Using this electromagnetic energy causes the muscles to do what are called super maximal contractions."

How Does High Intensity EMS Body Sculpting Work?

Before we dive into how high intensity EMS body sculpting works, let’s consider traditional exercise.

When you lift weights, you’re essentially tearing up your muscles for the tissue to rebuild back firmer and stronger. With a great amount of time, effort, and discipline, you can work to make your muscles stronger, which can ultimately help you lose weight and tone your physique.

The high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology used by our  the high intensity EMS  body sculpting machines is designed to induce muscle contractions at a far more rapid pace than traditional exercise, and it does so without allowing  the muscles to relax. The body responds to the treatment by building muscle more quickly, and a large amount of fat is burnt in the process.

Because  high intensity EMS body sculpting induces supramaximal muscle contractions that are not achievable with traditional exercises, it leads to faster results. While each person will notice differences within their own timeframe, most people can expect to see visible results within a few weeks of treatment. 

How Can You Burn More Fat Using a High Intensity EMS Sculpting Machine?

The vibration frequency can have a major impact on your body’s ability to burn fat and strengthen your muscles.  If you’ve noticed weight gain after using a high intensity EMS sculpting machine, you may have the frequency set too low.  Setting the frequency higher will help burn fat more rapidly and slim the body.  

Get to know the machine settings before setting goals; one setting may be better geared toward reaching a weight loss goal over toning and sculpting your muscles.
