Electro muscle stimulation (EMS) transmits impulses into the muscles which mimics natural muscle contractions as experienced during a workout. EMS improves muscle tone resulting in cm loss and helps to prevent muscle scarring and loss of muscle elasticity.
Infrared heating is a useful device to relieve muscle pain. The infrared machine penetrates infrared heat into the muscle. The heat increases blood flow to the area which brings nutrients and oxygen to the muscle, this lets the muscle heal quicker, while reducing inflammation and pain.
People who suffer from chronic muscle pain will highly benefit from infrared heat. Infrared heat is good for treating conditions such as:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
Infrared heat goes beyond pain relief, it also improves the body by:
- Boosting the metabolism
- Reducing body fat
- Increasing energy
- Improving circulation to the muscles
- Enhancing endurance
- Increasing strength
- Achieving faster recovery time
- Reducing visible cellulite
- Rejuvenating the skin
The use of infrared heat therapy and EMS machines works together to warm up the muscles and it activates the cells and organs which causes blood vessels to widen. The absorbed heat is distributed through the body via blood circulation. This increases the metabolic rate and mobilises the body’s antigens. The increases in blood supply accelerates lymph drainage, which flushes toxins from the body and reduces cellulite. As well as its cellulite reducing effects, infrared is therapeutic for individuals with weak backs and painful joints.
Health Technology manufacturers the Duo range of machines. The Duo 5 and Duo 3, both providing EMS and BodyTherm wrap technology on the same machine. The BodyTherm wraps deliver infrared heat which when used in conjunction with an EMS treatment is highly beneficial.
