Electric Muscle Stimulation Therapy
Electric Muscle Stimulation mimics the body’s nervous system by sending safe, low frequency electrical pulses to the affected area, causing the muscle to contract and increasing temperature and blood circulation. The same natural process of the body to repair injuries works with EMS to relieve other common nervous system disorders including constant headaches, numbness of limbs and back pain.
By utilizing and encouraging the body’s natural healing mechanisms, EMS and similar therapies can drastically reduce the dependence on medications and unnecessary surgeries and resolve the symptoms of underlying causes much quicker.
Which conditions does EMS treat?

What does EMS feel like?
A gentle tingling that develops into a massage-like sensation as the frequency is increased. The therapy normally lasts anywhere from 10 – 15 minute and is often used in conjunction with hot or cold compresses, depending on the type of pain.
