Dec 15, 2020

Whether you are in the recovery process after an injury, stroke, or are dealing with the effects of fibromyalgia, you can benefit from the physical treatment of electro slimming technology.

Today, electro-slim technology is among the leading methods that enhance natural weight loss giving you a perfectly toned and slim body. The technology has been tested in different slimming programs, and the results are easy and quick.

What’s even better is that the treatment is natural, doesn’t involve any drugs, and also doesn’t have harmful side effects. You can, therefore, use this slimming treatment if you have a craving for a lean and breathtakingly toned figure. Read along to learn how the treatment works and some of its benefits.

What to Expect during an E-Stim Therapy

Be ready for the following activities during an electro-slim therapy in Foreviva Medical Clinique.

  • Electrodes will be placed about the site receiving treatment
  • The electrical current begins on a low note then the setting increases gradually
  • There will be the use of tingly “pins and needles” on the treatment site
  • You may feel a muscle twitch or repeated muscle contraction
  • Each e-slim treatment session may last from 5 -15 minutes concerning the condition being treated.

How the Treatment Works

The working of an EMS treatment is quite simple and easy. It uses small electrodes placed on the skin using sticky pads that come off at the end of the treatment. They cause a little discomfort when coming out.

Your doctor then releases steady streams of electrical pulses from the e-stim machine through the wires. The unit is usually a small machine the size of a landline phone and can easily fit into your bag.

When the electrical pulses reach your muscles, they force the contraction of the fibers. Using the unit from time to time causes the cellulite underlying the skin to disappear, giving you a lean and slender look.

As a result, your skin texture may also commendably improve with subsequent treatments. Various slimming programs use this technology as a better alternative weight loss solution.

Risks of Electro Slim

Skin irritation on the sites where electrodes are placed is the most prevalent risk of electro-slim.

Still, there is a heart health risk associated with electro-slim treatment. Electrical muscle stimulation is not recommended for people who use heart pacemakers or other implanted heart devices.

Experts do not also recommend e-slim for pregnant mothers. But in supervised circumstances, the treatment can be used to alleviate labor pain.

Benefits of E-slim treatment

Effective Weight Loss – Electro slim treatment has the same effect as a full-body workout session. An hour of electro slim is equivalent to 600 sit-ups, pushups and leg lifts together. Our 45-minute e-slimming session can burn up to 1000 calories.

Cellulite reduction – By use of electrodes, the treatment stimulates lymphatic drainage, which is vital for breaking down underlying fat, flushing out toxins, and reducing excess fluids. With time, the elasticity of the skin is restored as well as the affected tissues.

Gentle treatment – Electro slimming doesn’t have any effect on your joints as no weights are used during the workout. The intensity of the treatment is regulated using electrostimulation, unlike weight training, where heavyweights and intense exercises are used.

Since e-slim doesn’t depend on weights or high impact training, there is no risk of muscle strain or injury experienced. This allows the treatment to be an ideal workout for the elderly or people suffering from joint problems.

Body Sculpting – Through intensive muscle stimulation, the body achieves a better shaped and toned figure, while also toning your skin for a firmer physical appearance. Dr. Joel Osias’s e-slim technology is the go-to solution if you want to look younger and more vibrant.

Other benefits of e-slimming include:

  • Quicker results
  • Protects joints
  • Concurrently cures large muscle groups
  • Features personal training
  • Appropriate for all ages, despite the fitness level
  • Reduces back pain
  • Uses a unit that easily fits in your bag

Can Electro-slim be used as an alternative form of treatment?

Other than using it for body toning, electro stimulation can be used to treat:

  • Cancer-related pain
  • Dysphagia (trouble swallowing)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Nerve inflammation
  • Urinary Incontinence
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Muscle conditioning

Electro Muscle Stimulation technology is among the most effective methods to give you a perfectly toned body. Various programs for electro slim are available.
