Muscle Impulse Stimulation (MIS) technology is a form of electrical stimulation that uses a higher intensity current than microcurrent stimulation and so is ideally suited for firming and toning body muscles.
The current is delivered through electrically conductive pads that are positioned over specific muscle groups.The current is a low-frequency alternating milli-amperage current delivered in a series of short pulses a few milliseconds in length.
As the current passes through the conductive pads it stimulates the motor points of the muscle triggering a visible muscle contraction. By varying the intensity of the current, the pulse length, wave form and the rest period between each muscle contraction MIS treatments can be customized to the needs of each individual. MIS technology can be used for the toning of wasted muscles, and for stimulating the blood supply in wasted limbs. When applied aesthetically MIS technology is traditionally used for body contouring, slimming and toning.
Each treatment session provides a form of passive muscle exercise.
A typical 20 minute stomach treatment is the equivalent of doing 300 perfect sit ups
