What is electrical muscle stimulation?
Reading time: 5 min.
Electrical muscle stimulation has been used in the last decades by the world's best athletes but has always been an expensive treatment and difficult to access by most people. Before we explain all its benefits, it’s important to understand how electrical muscle stimulation works on your body: the devices send electrical impulses to your muscles, generating muscle contraction. These contractions may be Type 1 (slow-twitch) or Type 2 (fast-twitch) and occur on the muscle fibers in the area where you put the device. With different Hertz levels, it activates specific muscle fibers, forcing them to contract, increasing blood flow and nutrient distribution to recruit more muscle fibers - by combining an electrical muscle stimulator with your workout routine, your performance can increase, your recovery can become faster and risk of muscule injuries can decrease.

- Reduces Muscle Soreness
