Main benefits of EMS

Development of strength and endurance

Normally, when you train in the gym (or in another similar exercise), you only use between 40 and 70% of your strength potential. EMS improves muscle function and increases the intensity of muscle contractions, allowing your body to use up to 90% of its potential, achieving more in less time.

Build muscle (hypertrophy)

The extra stimulation your muscles receive during an EMS training session is what leads to an increase in muscle mass or also known as hypertrophy. After a few training sessions, an increase in the size of the muscles of the chest, arms and legs is usually noticed.

reduce fat

EMS promotes a high level of metabolic activity during, and for many hours after, a treatment session. The higher your metabolism, the better your body will burn fat and build lean muscle mass. In the case of women, EMS training has been shown to reduce the size of the most common problem areas, such as the waist, hips and thighs, thus helping to lose weight.

Improves posture and reduces back pain

An imbalance in the postural muscles of the back, abdomen and pelvic floor can cause various annoying symptoms, such as back pain. You can notice it especially if you sit at a desk for long periods of time. EMS can specifically target and train these hard-to-reach muscle groups.

Relieve the stress

An athlete using electrical muscle stimulation will have less stress and anxiety, which can help them perform better on the field. The contractions can help the athlete feel more relaxed as more oxygenated blood is flowing through their body and this can help them focus better.

Improved elasticity and flexibility

Exercise with electro stimulation can also provide us, depending on the type of training we do, indisputable improvements in the level of power, of course also in terms of elasticity and flexibility.

Tones the buttocks and eliminates cellulite

EMS acts on soft tissues, such as fat cells and connective tissue. It can help reduce the appearance of cellulite by improving circulation, eliminating toxins, toning muscles, and stimulating collagen production and blood flow in the skin.

Strengthens the abdomen

Exercise the abdominals with mio electro stimulation and improve the results by reaching all the muscle fibers that we cannot achieve with traditional exercises. The electrodes are arranged in a way that allows effective work to be done without compromising comfort.

Strengthens the pelvic floor

Activate the pelvic floor muscles and help them maintain their contraction. Urinary incontinence in men and women, lack of male vigor, sensation of genital bulge, uncontrolled expulsion of gases, difficulty evacuating, lack of sexual pleasure, are some of the affectations that usually recover when receiving EMS floor therapy. pelvic. In those people who have this area very weak, global electro stimulation is almost the only way to correct pelvic floor weakness.

EMS benefits in injuries

One of the greatest benefits of Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is that it can be used to treat weak or atrophied muscles as a result of injury or long periods of immobility. It works by stimulating the muscles, causing them to contract and relax, much like normal physical activity.

Stimulation helps build strength in the affected area and can be used to treat completely disabled patients by creating involuntary muscle contraction responses, thus improving and also maintaining muscle tone without any actual physical activity.

Many sports-related injuries reduce the range of motion of the joints, especially in the shoulders, elbows, and knees. EMS can be used to increase range of motion and promote healing in the injured area, increases blood flow  thus reducing inflammation.

Relieves chronic pain with mio electro stimulation

Many patients suggest that EMS helps them relieve chronic pain in joints and muscles, as well as their suffering from stress and tension. This therapy is great for pain relief in fibromyalgia patients and can also be used to treat chronic headaches, muscle weakness and fatigue, as well as general body aches.

Other EMS benefits

Reduces muscle tension

EMS treatment promotes blood circulation through the muscles, which can significantly help to release muscle tension and knots.

Improved sports performance

In many types of sports, strength has a huge impact on performance. EMS training maximizes muscle capacity and strength, as well as correcting postural imbalances that can impede performance. It is an incredibly useful and time-effective program to run alongside conventional training for sports like running. cycling, athletics, soccer and swimming.

Correction of muscular imbalances

EMS is designed to allow targeting of certain muscle groups. This is especially important if you want to correct muscle imbalances. Sitting at a desk for a long time, for example, causes a shortening of the chest muscles and a simultaneous weakening of the shoulder and back muscles.

Less strain on the musculoskeletal system

EMS training does not require additional effort. The intensity of the training is not due to heavy loads, but to electrical stimulation. This is much easier on the joints and the musculoskeletal system. During EMS training, the training intensity is generated by electrical stimulation. This allows the user to enjoy smooth training sessions that are easy on the joints, without any additional burden from barbells/dumbbells.

postpartum recovery

Who would have thought that electrical muscle stimulation could help after pregnancy? In addition to helping with weight loss and toning, EMS treatment can help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which are often stretched and weakened after pregnancy and can cause bladder leakage. However, EMS strengthens this area by stimulating the adductor muscles of the thigh, as well as the nerves that innervate the pelvic floor muscles. This is extremely helpful in preventing urinary incontinence, a common problem faced by women after pregnancy.
