After watching numerous videos / tutorials on how to achieve that highly coveted 6 pack or bubble butt with the help of various exercises like crunches / squats, you probably would have chanced upon the EmShape body Sculpting Treatment. A treatment that helps to burn fat and build muscle at the same time without breaking a sweat.
How does EmShape work?
EmShape uses a non-invasive technology similar to competitor EmSculpt, HIPEM (High Intensity Pulsed ElectroMagnetic) energy to promote muscle contraction at their peak power and ability. This high-intensity muscle workout will lead to the remodelling and enhancement of muscles, as well as effective fat burning. The EmShape device induces supramaximal contractions (a more intense version of what you would feel during a regular muscle contraction while performing crunches / squats) which creates more tension and requires more energy from the body. Clinical studies have shown that this technology can permanently reduce fat as well. The EmShape treatment takes you one-step closer to achieving your #bodygoals.
Pros of the EmShape Body Sculpting Treatment
1: Burn fat
The Emshape Body Sculpting Treatment promotes muscle contraction at their peak power & ability which is the burning feeling you get when you try to hold in a crunch position for a long time. During the 30 minute treatment, you will experience 20,000 contractions. Intensive supramaximal contractions helps to improve the release of epinephrine, which will then lead to supramaximal lipolysis in the fat cells resulting in the loss of unwanted fats.
2: Build muscle
During the EmShape Body Sculpting Treatment, the stored fat (triglycerides) are broken into free fatty acids (FFA) and glycerol which are used as sources for energy by the body. Muscles are developed when the intensive supramaximal contractions stimulates the growth of myofibrils, new protein and muscle hyperplasia (fiber chains) which results in the development of muscles.
3: Able to treat Diastasis Recti
The Emshape Treatment can also help with Diastasis Recti, also known as the "pooch", a common condition that occurs post-pregnancy which affects two-thirds of women. Some women resort to having an abdominoplasty or a "tummy tuck" which may be too invasive and not necessary for some women. A non-invasive alternative solution would be to stick to a strict program of deep abdominal exercises performed with a neutral spine combined with pelvic floor exercises, such as Kegel’s and pelvic tilts. Thankfully with the advancement of technology, mothers who do not have the time to exercise and do not wish to go under the knife, the EmShape Body Sculpting treatment can help to target Diastasis Recti and help mothers to regain their confidence.
Cons of the EmShape Body Sculpting Treatment
1: Not able to get rid of large amounts of fat
Unlike other non-invasive methods such as Fat Freezing, the EmShape Body Sculpting Treatment is unable to target large amounts of fats. Ideally for those looking to get rid of unwanted fats, should opt for other alternatives before considering EmShape to sculpt and build muscle.
2: Multiple sessions required
EmShape will require several sessions to achieve optimal results. Usually it is recommended to come back every 2 weeks for 2 months.
3: Higher price tag compared to regular body contouring treatments
The price for the EmShape treatment is generally higher than other body contouring treatments that uses RF / cryotherapy for example. The cost for this technology is generally a lot higher than other contouring treatments which explains the higher price tag. If you are already spending hundreds of dollars at the gym but have yet to reap the rewards, EmShape may be the answer to your work out plateau.
Common questions about the EmShape Body Sculpting Treatment
What is EmShape?
EmShape® is the latest generation of technologically advanced body contouring treatment that helps to build muscle and sculpt your body. Clinical studies have shown that this technology can permanently reduce fat as well. The innovative EmShape® system is a non-invasive, pain-free procedure that is able to tone and lift the buttocks without the need for excessive exercise or invasive surgery. A 30-min session of EmShape is equivalent to 20000 crunches or 20000 squats performed!
Am I a suitable candidate?
If you have a higher BMI, it is recommended that you try other weight loss treatments like fat freezing before moving on to body sculpting treatments like EmShape as when there is a higher fat content at the treated area, results may not be as obvious.
What to expect during the EmShape Treatment?
After a thorough consultation with your Professional Aesthetician, you will be brought to the slimming room where the devices will be strapped on to your targeted area. Subsequently, when the treatment begins, the intensity will start off slow and will gradually increase to ensure that you are comfortable during the duration of the treatment.
Will I feel any pain?
Generally the overall treatment is quite comfortable. Some clients feel that the contractions may feel a bit strange at first but eventually the body will become accustom to the sensation during each contraction.
Some clients say they feel some muscle soreness post treatment which is normal and will recover in the next few days.
