What Is E-stim and How Can It Help You

E-Stim is the muscle therapy treatment that is taking the health and fitness world by storm. Once upon a time, if you wanted to help treat muscle pains, stimulate muscles in order to promote strengthening, or need to get over stiff and sore aches, you had to either schedule an appointment with your physical therapist or take over the counter pain medication, but that’s not the case anymore. With Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS), you can stimulate your own muscles with the push of a button. An E-Stim session can be incredibly effective to recover alongside your oxygen session at Breathe in Las Vegas.

Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS)

Many athletes and fitness enthusiasts are finding ways to incorporate electronic muscle stimulation into their workouts. The reason being that electronic muscle stimulation (EMS) stimulates the muscle with quick electrical pulses that get your blood flowing by rapidly contracting your muscles. This can make EMS an effective workout companion!

Additionally, Electronic Muscle Stimulation is used to help activate the muscles when they need to start contracting and getting the blood flowing. A common use of this is in the case of using EMS on the abdomen to help regulate incontinence.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

While EMS is great for working out and muscle stimulation, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is used for recovery and pain management therapy. When you feel pain, whether it is chronic or acute pain, your body sends pain signals from the affected area to the pain receptors in your brain. A TENS device works to disrupt those pain signals by sending quick electrical pulses and vibrations from the electrode pads.

The Benefits of TENS and EMS Therapy

There are a lot of incredible benefits that both TENS and EMS devices can have. As mentioned, when you use the EMS setting of an E-Stim device, it becomes a wonderful workout companion as you can stimulate and contract muscles. When you use the TENS setting on your E-Stim device, it can be an incredible pain relief tool that can assist you in helping you find relief from chronic and acute pain.
