Slimline Slimming Machine (EMS)

Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is based on electrotherapy which has been researched and accepted in the field of rehabilitation.  It is a range of beauty treatments that uses low electric currents (Faradic waves) passed through the skin to produce several therapeutic effects, such as



1. muscle toning in the body, 
2. micro-lifting of the face,
3. smoothing and reducing cellulite,
4. fat loss.



Faradic treatment has been a part of the beauty industry since the 1970s.  The treatment firms and tones the muscles by repeatedly contracting them with the electric current.  Various muscle groups are worked by the slimline slimming machine by overriding the direct impulses from the brain and stimulating the motor points of the muscle which activates an involuntary muscular contraction. This action simulates normal but intense exercise, toning and firming specific muscle groups. These machines can actually perform 1,200 different movements per 60 minute treatment.


The Slimline also has special settings to allow for muscle firming and toning of the face, producing even more dramatic results than for muscle elsewhere on the body.  By strengthening and toning the face muscles over a series of sessions, the face is literally lifted and placed back into it’s more youthful position.  The reason for this is that the face is the only part of our bodies where muscles attach directly from bone to skin.  As we age, and the muscles atrophy from not being used, the weight of the skin gradually sags and pulls the face out of place.  The response of these small facial muscles is phenomenal!  Please see our Face Fitness section for more information. 


Fat loss is more important for a lot of people.  The Slimline slimming machine uses the latest development in technology to get rid of unwanted weight fast. First the faradic pads are applied and then covered by non-toxic heat wraps, warming the body and contracting the muscles simultaneously.  Cell waste, including the content from fat cells, is eliminated through the lymphatic system.  The lymphatic system depends totally on the movement of the muscle around it to move material along.  The increase in muscular metabolism stimulates the lymphatic system to remove waste products from fat cells more quickly.  Used by itself, or together with Lipolaser or Ultrasound Lipo, the Slimline slimming machine really enhances rapid results.  Many clients have seen inches of unwanted fat taken off effectively and quickly.


The Slimline slimming machine also helps reduce cellulite through firming the muscles, tightening the skin, and through improved lymphatic draining and increasing blood circulation. 


Contrary to what many spas may claim about fat loss through “burning calories”, EMS devices cause a calorie burning that is marginal at best: calories are burnt in significant amount only when most of the body is involved in physical exercise: several muscles, the heart and the respiratory system need to be all engaged at once.  It’s in their stimulation of the lymphatic system where the real value is.  If you’re wanting to burn calories, our fitness programs are designed to intensely hit an extreme body metabolism that sustains calorie burning for days after the workout! 


This is a must for people with problem flab deposits and cellulite. At the touch of a button the selectable programs are designed to tone, slim and firm particular body areas. You select the program which start the treatment, then set the levels of intensity to your comfort and the machine does the rest. The results of the 24 pad combo will really amaze you!
