WHAT IS EMS ?
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is an advanced muscle exercise and muscle toning technique that is an efficiently & effectively supplement to your workout routine. Our EMS units are portable, light weight and battery-powered electronic units. EMS units are designed to exercise body ,muscles by applying a chosen intensity and frequency of electrical current repeatedly in a series of stimulated contraction & relaxation phased. EMS is recommended for anyone participating in body building, power lifting, martial arts, boxing, or anyone simply wishing to achieve their optimal athletic physique.
HOW DOES EMS WORKS ?
The EMS unit has a series of wire connections with two or four adhesive electrodes attached at the end of each channel. The unit delivers a gentle electronic impulse by contracting and relaxing rhythmically as instructed by you through the unit. When a muscle contracts as a result of the EMS stimulations, the chemical reactions taking place within the muscles are similar to those associated with voluntary contraction as in “normal exercising”. These chemical reactions utilize glycogen, fat and other nutrients stored in the muscle. These series of muscle contraction will enable an individual to tone, firm, strengthen, and combat flabbiness and improve contour.
WHAT IS TENS ?
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), is designed for symptomatic relief and management of chronic intractable pain. TENS is a safe non-invasive drug-free method of pain management. “Transcutaneous” means across the skin. TENS unit device can be used to relieve acute or chronic pain symptoms via several adjustable modes and levels of electric current intensity, which allows users to choose a comfortable level of relief easily. It also relieves pain by sending tiny electrical impulses through electrodes placed on or near the area of pain or pressure point to underlying nerve fiber.
HOW DOES TENS WORK ?
The theory of TENS suggests that there are two pain-relieving mechanisms. When TENS delivers steady mild electrical current, some people experience less pain. The electricity from the electrodes stimulate the nerves in an affected area and may block the pain signal travelling to the brain. If the pain signal does not get through to the brain, the pain is not perceived. This theory is often referred to as the “gate control” theory.
Another theory is that the electrical stimulation of the nerves may help the body’s own natural pain control mechanism. Low frequency electrical current may cause the body to release the pain killing substances, called “ endorphins “. No matter what pain theory is used, TENS has been proven useful in the field of pain management.
