What is truly impressive about the Slimwave treatment is that it targets specific body areas as it accelerates weight loss. The cleverly designed programs keeps the skin toned and helps to prevent sagging during the process. It is a powerful, safe, painless alternative to drugs or surgery that allows you to achieve results rapidly with no downtime. The soothing electro-stimulation treatment is beneficial to all muscle groups because as it breaks up fat and speeds up the metabolism, it also tones and firms areas like the abdominal muscles, glutes, legs, thighs, knees, “love handles or muffin tops” and arms.
How do you loose weight with electrotherapy?
During the Slimwave treatments, pads are placed on your body in exact zones to correspond to acupuncture points. These pads transmit deep penetrating impulses into the muscles, causing them to intermittently contract and relax, mimicking natural muscle movements in a controlled workout, this causes firming and shaping in the targeted areas. The computer varies the output speed and stimulation combination once every minute according to the chosen program until treatment is fully complete.
What happens during a Slimwave session?
Slimwave is a systematic treatment designed to enhance blood flow and stimulate circulation whilst promoting the muscles to contract and relax rhythmically causing fat to metabolize while muscles tighten and tone. Slimwave breaks down the fat, allowing it to dissolve and liquefy and be flushed from the body each time you drink water in the hours following your treatment. Each treatment is controlled by a computer to target the specific areas and work on your problem areas firming and toning muscles to reshape your body while offering the benefits of a controlled full body passive workout.
After an initial assessment of your goals and problem zones, you can relax in our comfortable treatment room. We will place a number of electro pads on the specific parts of your body that will be treated. Once activated, the electrodes go to work to transform your problem areas. The electrotherapy equipment is computerized and will be set to different stimulation strengths. Don’t worry the treatment is completely safe. The first time you might notice the strange tingling sensation, but this is your signal that the fat is beginning to break down – as you get used to the strength we will increase the intensity.
For best results, it is recommended to schedule a 45 minute session – twice a week for about six weeks. However, individual programs are constructed depending on your specific needs and desired outcome.
EMS treatment has been shown to improve strength when used with muscle training.
Here are other benefits:
- improved circulation
- elimination of toxins
- lymphatic drainage
- improvement of cellulite
Infratherapy & cellulite
The Slimwave program includes a powerful Infra-red treatment resulting in the improvement and reduction of visible cellulite.
Cellulite is a skin condition that is difficult to treat. It is usually recognized as an accumulation of fats and excess fluids, which are encapsulated as fat in the collagen and tissues underneath the skin of certain parts of the body. Sufferers know that dieting and exercise may burn up the fat but the “orange peel” look of cellulite will remain.
Infra-red treatment used during the Slimwave session quickly warms up the muscles during the treatment, improving the blood circulation and lymph drainage.
Cells and organs exposed to this thermal infra-red treatment are activated, and as the blood circulation is improved, the blood vessels in the cells are widened. As the metabolic rate is increased, the anti-genes in the body are mobilized. The absorbed heat is distributed through the body by the blood circulation leading to an improvement in the lymph drainage. Where the cellulite is evident, the lymph drainage effect is accelerated and the toxins are flushed from the body.
The thermal effect of infratherapy acts on the superficial fat, helping to stimulate the metabolism, reduce/eliminate the cellulite and fatty deposits.
The Slimwave treatment has the same effect as a full session with a trainer. One hour of electrotherapy is like doing 600 sit ups, 600 push-ups and 600 leg lifts together. Our 45-minute session can burn to burn up 1000 calories! When used in combination a healthy diet, this program can be exceptionally effective.
Gentle on your joints
There is no strain on your joints as you don’t use any weights during your workout. The intensity of a Slimwave treatment is regulated through electro stimulation, whereas conventional weight training is carried out by heavy weights or high impact running or jumping which can cause strain and injury if you don’t maintain the correct posture and coordination. Slimwave is not dependent on weights or high impact training, so the risks of strain and injury are therefore greatly reduced which makes Slimwave is the ideal workout for older people or people with joint problems and injuries.
Through intensive stimulation of the muscles, your body looks more shaped and toned, your skin healthier and your physical appearance firmer and toned.
The stimulation through electrodes will boost lymphatic drainage and circulation, which is vital for breaking down fat deposits, the reduction of excess fluids and flushing out toxins. This combination results in healthier looking, vibrant skin. Slimwave can, over time break down the trapped fibrous barrier and help drain it away, returning the elasticity to the skin and tissue that has been affected.
