Frequently Asked Questions
No. The electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) method has been used successfully by physicians, physiotherapists and chiropractors for decades. It has recently gained in popularity in health care facilities and spas.
No. The low frequency pulse only activates the striated skeletal musculature. It does not reach the organs and heart!
EMS does not hurt at all. Only low impulse frequencies are used, and our bodies feel very little difference between a natural impulse and an external impulse created via an EMS machine. You can be confident that your personal trainer will adjust their frequency to the most suitable and comfortable training impulse level for you.
Yes! The coach will help you choose the right size suit, which has been designed to provide comfort and complete freedom of movement during training.
Yes. Electrical impulses during the EMS session get to the deeper parts of the muscles and increase the blood supply to muscles and tissue, eliminating the effects of cellulite and improving skin elasticity.
Yes. EMS training enables you to improve your posture by easily activating your muscles, including many essential stabilizing and postural muscles around your spine, pelvis, shoulder girdle, knees and feet.
Unfortunately no. Electrical stimulation is not recommended during pregnancy.
There are numerous studies that clearly indicate that the method quickly and effectively trains the deep pelvic floor muscles. It is an elegant countermeasure to a tendency towards incontinence. The positive effects naturally apply to all of the connective tissue and skin structures that are stretched and overstretched during a pregnancy.
IMPORTANT: Consult your gynecologist and do not begin training until four to six weeks after delivery. Training starts at a very low intensity, which also serves as lymph drainage. Depending on how the body reacts, the intensity is increased gradually over the course of multiple sessions.
Yes. But with this training method, you will achieve success well beyond the range of conventional training. Numerous muscle groups are addressed at the same time, and the method is gentle to joints. Muscle buildup = hypertrophy is easily attainable. REMEMBER: The hormone level is crucial: Male hormones (testosterone) build muscles, while female hormones (estrogen) form musculature which improves body shape.
Yes. Because, during the session, EMS works simultaneously 8 muscle groups, this method allows to train intensively the whole body in one 20-minute workout, which in terms of the intensity corresponds to 2 hours spent in the gym.
The difference will be felt straight after your first workout, due to your body releasing endorphins, your circulation increasing and your posture automatically improving – due to the recent muscle activation. After a couple of days, some muscle stiffness will be felt, which is entirely normal. After approximately 3 to 4 sessions, you will not only feel, but see a visible difference from the EMS training. Of course, as with conventional training, EMS training should be done regularly to maintain and ensure optimal results.
Generally speaking, EMS training is suitable for most people. However, certain health conditions are contraindicated.
If you have a pacemaker or if you are pregnant, you should not participate in EMS training.
• Inguinal hernia
• Diabetes mellitus
• Advanced arteriosclerosis
• Severe neurological disorders – such as multiple sclerosis or epilepsy
• Acute bacterial or viral infections, or fever
• Abdominal wall injury hernia
• Severe or arterial circulatory disorder
Please consult your doctor if you suffer from any of the above conditions to receive medical approval before commencing your EMS personal training program.
Yes! Because EMS method does not put stress on joints, it is completely safe. Research shows that seniors even over the age of 65 achieved their results.

All you need is just a comfortable outfit like a thin, adherent pants (preferably leggings), clean socks and comfortable shirt.
Unfortunately, because the special drainage suit also covers the lower part of the abdomen, lymphatic drainage can not be performed in pregnant women.
Two sessions per week at 48-hour intervals between treatments are recommended. To achieve ideal result it is recommended to have 20 series of treatment during the year.
The treatment takes from 30 to 50 minutes.
