EMS training enables you to improve your posture by easily activating your muscles, including many essential stabilising and postural muscles around your spine, pelvis, shoulder girdle, knees and feet.

Gaining muscle strength is important for so much more than simply looking good and maintaining a healthy weight. Correctly strengthened muscles can immensely help improve your posture, and the health of your spine; making movement easier, increasing your range of movement and helping your body to become pain-free, as well as reducing the chance of injury. Furthermore, by performing the correct posture exercises, other muscles that have been overly tight due to compensation, can begin to relax and let go, further eliminating pain throughout the body.

Essential posture exercises to counteract a sedentary life

For many people today, life is way too sedentary. After sleep, we sit and eat breakfast, drive or commute to work in a seated position, sit all day at a desk – only to drive home to sit and eat and perhaps watch television. Exercise activities are a brief, and even regular walks fail to adequately strengthen and stabilise all our muscles adequately.

EMS training is performed standing, so your body is in natural, weight-bearing positions that are very suitable for postural correction. While wearing the bodysuits with the tens machines attached to your body, you go through a series of static exercises, which will help to activate your deep postural muscles as well as your larger, more superficial muscles. More importantly, EMS training is so effective that only one session per week is necessary to gain good results.

Back exercises & torso stability

To stabilise the torso, and provide adequate back support, the transversus abdominus, internal and external obliques and the deep stabilisers of the spine, such as multifudus are activated. The gluteus medius, gluteus maximus, quads, adductors and hamstrings are all activated to help stabilise and support the trunk. Additionally, muscles of the shoulder girdle are efficiently recruited to stabilise the shoulder area.
