What is EMS body shaping 

EMS body shaping is designed to build muscle and sculpt your body. Through the high intensity electromagnetic therapy procedure one can enlarge current muscles, as well as grow new muscle fibers. EMS sessions can be booked to treat your abdominal, buttocks, arms, calves and thighs.

EMS is known for its impressive muscle toning and fat-burning properties—and the non-invasive treatment requires zero downtime afterward. 

How does EMS work?

EMS uses cutting-edge technology to tone your body and help eliminate fat. It uses electromagnetic energy to get the muscles to contract in the area you're treating, the process is similar to how we contract our muscles naturally. EMS takes over that process to a much stronger extent than our bodies are able to using this electromagnetic energy causes the muscles to do what are called super maximal contractions.

This is the first device that removes fat by "working out" the underlying muscle. FDA-cleared for the strengthening, toning, and firming of the abdomen and butt.

What sets EMS apart from the pack is its duality: It not only implodes fat cells (for a 19 percent loss after four treatments), but simultaneously builds muscle fibers (by roughly 16 percent) for more defined abs and rounder rear-ends. 

EMS essentially causes 20,000 muscle contractions in 30 minutes, constricting the muscles beyond any sort of physiological norm, and targeting fat loss to the area of the muscle — something sit-ups alone could never accomplish.

During these intense pulses, the muscles release chemicals locally, which are saying, 'Oh my word, we are being way overworked; this is not normal.' - They then signal fat cells in the area to break down their contents and release them as free fatty acids. The sheer abundance of fatty acids overwhelms the fat cells, causing them to malfunction and die, after which, they're metabolized by the body and excreted as waste.

The muscles, meanwhile, are said to undergo cellular changes, thickening and strengthening (with the device's energy affecting the entire sheath of abdominals, from rib cage to groin.)

It's a very rapid response compared to other fat-reduction tools where you're waiting months to see something happen. With this, even after a single visit, you'll notice the area looking better a day or two later. Four sessions, spaced a few days apart, is the recommended session amount, with full-on wow results surfacing two to four weeks after your final appointment
