What is electrostimulation and why are the results so fast?

What if simple electrodes glued to the body could strengthen our muscles? Many top athletes use electrostimulation to complete their training or to recover better. Operation, use of electrostimulation to tone up, firm up, lose weight, or simply improve sports performance.

How it works ?

Electrostimulation consists of sending electrical stimulation to the muscles in order to cause them to contract. In the same way that a muscle is felt during an effort, electrostimulation seeks to cause microlesions, with the result of stimulating muscle regeneration. We can therefore hope to significantly strengthen the tone of the targeted muscles after a few sessions.

Why is it effective?

1) Whereas during a traditional workout, your nervous system is able to recruit only 30 to 35% of your muscle fibers. Thanks to EMS, you will recruit more than 90% of your muscle fibers during your training, which allows you to work in a much deeper and optimal way.

2) In order to work effectively during a traditional training session, it is necessary to spend 30 minutes per muscle in order to have the necessary stimuli for muscle adaptation to increase your endurance and your strength and thus tone and firm your body.

During your electrostimulation session in just 20 minutes of training, you work all of the 8 main muscle groups of your body.

3) Energy expenditure is one of the most important factors when you want to lose weight or simply maintain your current shape. Thanks to electrostimulation, you create muscle microlesions that force your cells to renew themselves. During this regeneration, your body continues to burn calories for up to 72 hours after your EMS session. This whole process also has the effect of dramatically increasing your basal metabolic rate through more toned muscles. To sum up, you burn calories during and after your session and you allow your body to burn more calories even at rest!

For who ?

Electrostimulation is suitable for anyone of any age provided there are no particular contraindications.

Since the sessions do not require additional weight and load, this is one of the methods favored by physiotherapists and top athletes for rehabilitation.

Whether you want to lose weight, tone and firm your body, soothe your back pain, improve your posture or simply prepare for a sporting event, EMS is made for you.

All these reasons make electrostimulation an undeniable asset if you want to get results quickly before the summer! Indeed, one to two sessions per week with our private coach will be enough to see results after 4 to 6 weeks.

No time to move? No problem, we offer home electrostimulation sessions in Geneva and its surroundings.

Here is a short timeline of events that marked the history of electromyostimulation:

      • The Greeks already used electric eels to treat diseases such as rheumatism.
      • 200 years BC. AD: treatment of headaches using electric rays (Claudius Galen in Asia Minor).
      • 1740: publication of the “Use of electricity in medical science” (Kratzenstein) as well as other works within the framework of physical therapy (Jallabert and Franklin).
      • 1780: tests on frog legs by Luigi Galvani which demonstrates the possibility of electrically stimulating the muscles.
      • 19th century: appearance of the first mechanical power generators to stimulate local muscle areas without burning the skin (Duchenne and Faraday).
      • Beginning of the 20th century: definition of the terminology and fundamental laws of electrostimulation (Gildenmeister and Lapique).
      • 1939: tests on mammals made it possible to achieve a significantly higher muscle contraction power using EMS than with voluntary contractions.
      • 1960: development of Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES), Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) and Gate Control Theory, which has since been used with great success in therapy and sports.
      • 1971: Russian physiotherapists adapt the technique to the training of athletes with a 30 to 40% gain in strength among its athletes thanks to electrostimulation.
      • 1970s: marketing of abdominal belts such as Slendertone or Sportelec.
        End of the 1990s: increasing use of small EMS devices in sport, Compex in particular.
        2000s: invention of integral electrostimulation in Germany.
