How Does It Work?
Known as either Electro-Mechanical Stimulation, or Electrical Muscle Stimulation, EMS is a type of electrotherapy that stimulates a muscle contraction using electrical impulses to strengthen weak muscles, resulting in improved muscle tone and shape. Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) uses high intensities that cause excitation of peripheral nerves to produce a muscle contraction.
Low current electrical impulses of between 250Hz and 4000Hz are generated by the 4D-Cryo machine and delivered through the electrodes built into the treatment paddles, over the middle of the muscles that require stimulating. The impulses from EMS mimic the action potential (stimulus required to make the muscle contract) coming from the central nervous system. This causes the muscles to contract and relax in quick succession, mimicking the effects of active exercise.

Can I Be Treated?
The good news is that almost everyone can be treated – as long as you are over 18 and capable of doing some exercise after each treatment to burn your bodies “fuel”, laser lipo can be carried out. However, there are some contra-indications where we may not be able to treat you; we have listed these below and urge you to read through carefully. We kindly request that you do not take any offence if you cannot be treated, as this is for your own safety.
