EMF and IFT
ELECTRONIC MUSCLE STIMULATOR ( EMS)
“Electrical Muscle Stimulation” therapy is used to stimulate muscle motor nerves with the help of low voltage electrical currents. It primarily helps in muscle relaxation and increased local blood circulation. Contraction/relaxation of muscles has been found to effectively treat a variety of musculoskeletal and vascular conditions. Other common uses for EMS: increasing range of motion: preventing Muscle Disuse Atrophy, releasing muscle spasms, various conditions that benefit from increased local circulation.
EMS – A Cellulite Buster
EMS technology does not only stimulate muscle growth, it also works on other soft tissues like fat cells. Cellulite is irregular fat deposits beneath the skin. Weekly work outs with EMS will reduce the contents of these stubborn fat cells and improve circulation. In combination with the muscle toning, these effects will deliver a smoother more toned skin and a better body shape. EMS effectively reduces fat stores from the hips, waist and buttocks and firm the underlying the muscles, making EMS a brilliant ‘cellulite buster’.
Interferential Stimulator (IFT) originated in Germany and is a unique way of effectively delivering therapeutic frequencies to tissue. This therapy is used to relieve pain and accelerate the self-healing process, getting your body back to a healthy, pain-free state.
The high frequency signals of an IFC penetrate through the skin into deeper lying muscle tissues. Electrodes are placed on your skin around the injured body part. The Interferential Current device then transmits electrical impulses in minute quantities through your skin. Underlying tissue and nerves are stimulated which begins the healing properties. These impulses are not painful in the least. Frequencies produced by the IFC have been proven to stimulate endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers. This can help to create a self-healing process without the need to for medications. This form of therapy is also extremely useful in reducing pain, inflammation, curing edema, and spasms.
- What is EMS ?
EMS stands for Electro – Myo (muscle) – Stimulation. The muscles get an external electronic impulse and by this, they get stimulated and contracted at high intensity, promoting growth.
- How is EMS training effective?
With the help of the newest science and technology, EMS training trains all the major and minor muscles at a 92% intensity in just 20 minutes per week. In doing so, it stimulates all your muscles to grow, boosting your metabolism and increasing your fat burning mechanism.What differentiates EMS from normal sports and weightlifting is the intensity along with training all the muscles in such a short period of time.
- Is one session a week enough? Why only one session?
When working out in the gym, you normally have a split routine wherein you train different muscle groups, say Chest, Shoulder, Triceps or Back, Biceps or just Legs and Abs on different days of the week. However with the Miha Bodytech you’re training all of your 650 muscles in one session and that too with high intensity. The EMS stimulation stimulates muscle growth and helps in a higher fat burn. Hence once a week is good enough, giving time for the muscle to recover.
- Do I really build muscles with EMS?
Yes. Definitely. However, there is a difference between women and men. Women do not have much of the hormone levels that stimulate muscle growth in general. They can definitely achieve a more leaner, toned and attractive body shape, without bulking up.The male physique allows to build muscles faster. With EMS even the deep muscle fibers, which are normally not engaged with conventional strength training, are activated. Therefore a quantitative and qualitative improvement of the structure of all muscle groups can be achieved.

- Is EMS effective in alleviating back pain?
EMS training fights the widespread issue, “back pain”, in a very effective way. EMS activates especially the deep muscles that are difficult to engage through conventional training methods. By strengthening the back muscles and joint structures, the spinal disks are relieved and the entire back and trunk muscles are strengthened. Thus, tension and muscle imbalances are examined and addressed.After a few EMS-sessions, you will notice an improvement and especially a significant relief in your everyday activity.

- Can I improve my performance level with EMS?
During a full body workout with EMS, 90% of the muscle fibers are stimulated simultaneously. In order to achieve this with conventional strength training an enormous amount of time is usually necessary and the effect can not be achieved in a single session. In addition, EMS is particularly targeted at the deeper muscle fibers that are difficult to train with conventional methods, but which are important for the increase in strength. Therefore EMS is ideal for intra-as well as the inter-muscular coordination.Especially for strength/endurance sports, EMS leads to a measurable and tangible increase in the individual’s performance.
- Can I loose weight with EMS?
Yes, using EMS, all of the major and minor muscle groups are stimulated to grow and the metabolism gets the boost needed to be able to start the fat burning furnace.More lean muscles burn more calories and an activated metabolism burns more fat. So the logical consequence of EMS training is a healthy fat and weight reduction.You will be able to see results after a few workouts, in combination with a balanced diet. EMS is the perfect training method for a fast and healthy way to lose excessive fats.
