HI-EMT (High-Intensity Electromagnetic Muscle Trainer) and HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) are proven and effective methods for losing weight and sculpting the body.  HI-EMT is a new technology that not only burns fat but also builds muscle. As the name suggests, HIIT involves high-intensity workouts while laying down involving 30,000 muscle contractions in 30-minute sessions as well as other muscle building and strengthening programs with no recovery period.

What is HI-EMT / HIIT body sculpting?

What if to help your muscles develop faster, we shock them with electricity?  The procedure is exactly what it sounds like; using electrical current to stimulate muscles.

This can be done because your muscles naturally contract in response to electrical signals sent by your brain, and EMT machines replicate these impulses, causing muscles to contract on command.

How can HI-EMT / HIIT help me lose weight?

The extreme muscle contraction of HI-EMT technology triggers a significant amount of fat decomposition. Fatty acids are broken down from triglycerides and accumulated in fat cells. The concentrations of fatty acids are too high, causing the fat cells to apoptosis, which is excreted by the body’s normal metabolism within a few weeks.  Therefore, HI-EMT can strengthen and increase muscle, and reduce fat at the same time. Several recent studies using CT, MRI, and ultrasound evaluations have reported a reduction in the subcutaneous fat layer of approximately 19% in patients treated with HI-EMT-based devices in the abdomen. The principle of apoptosis induced by increased free fatty acid concentrations has been observed and confirmed in many studies.

What do I need to prepare for my HI-EMT Body Sculpting appointment?

HI-EMT Body Sculpting is non-invasive and requires no recovery time or any pre/post-treatment preparation or downtime. Improved muscle tone lasts at least 6 months but longer if you exercise regularly. The fat loss in the abdomen area is thought to be long-term due to fat cell destruction.

Who is a good candidate for HI-EMT/ HIIT body sculpting?

HI-EMT/ HIIT body sculpting is a simple way to not only burn off unwanted fat but also build stronger muscles and boost metabolism. This treatment is available to both men and women who are looking to target stubborn fat areas, rebuild muscles after an injury, kick off a new fitness routine, or tone and tighten specific areas of their body.

The major benefits of this treatment are fat burning, pain reduction, increasing muscle mass, improving joint health, and improving posture. Men and women who are seeking any of these benefits may be good HI-EMT/ HIIT body sculpting candidates. The following list includes some patient groups that will get the most benefit out of HI-EMT/ HIIT body sculpting treatments:

  • People who want to lose weight
  • People who want to gain muscle mass
  • Those who want to strengthen their muscles
  • Those who want to define a specific area of their body

There are a few people who should not use HI-EMT/ HIIT body sculpting. This treatment is not recommended for women who are pregnant or who have an implanted metal IUD (an intrauterine device for birth control). In addition, HI-EMT body sculpting is not safe for people who have implanted metal devices (such as a pacemaker) or metal pieces (such as screws, rods, or plates) inside their bodies.
