BTL Emsculpt – 20 000 Squats in 30 Minutes NO Problem!

BTL EMSCULPT® to Improve Shape and Tone Your Stomach and Buttocks

Let me start off by staying you WILL NOT have to do 20 000 squats or crunches -))

I went in the Ottawa Skin Clinic a few months ago to try and find a solution for my Abdomen and Butt. My main concern was muscle toning and fat loss on those two particular areas.  After having kids and working hard for years I was finally seeking some professional advice. You may of heard of the 2017/2018 surge of surgical procedures to shape and tone an hour glass figure. I am definitely not that daring and I was Ultimately thrilled to hear about the Non Invasive EMSCULPT technology.

 

Here is a brief summary: This is WAY too cool -))

Using High Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) technology, EMSculpt induces supramaximal muscle contractions not achievable through exercise (or voluntary contractions). During normal voluntary muscle contractions the muscle fibers relax between each nervous stimulus. EMSculpt generates impulses at such a rapid frequency that it doesn’t allow such a relaxation phase. Supramaximal contractions cause an enhanced adrenaline release, which triggers an intensive lipolysis response in fat cells. When exposed to the supramaximal contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt, responding with a deep remodeling of its inner structure that results in muscle building and fat burning.

 

Some Fun Facts :

On average, the following were achieved in clinical studies on healthy patients:

  • (1.5 inches) loss in waistline circumference
  • 16% increase in muscle mass
  • 11% reduction in abdominal muscle separation (called diastasis recti)
  • 5 x increase in fat metabolism (apoptotic index increased from 19% to 92% after treatment)
  • 80% patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks
  • 96% patient satisfaction
  • Here are a list of questions that I asked Dr Michon and his team of professionals.

FAQ’s

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR EMSCULPT?
This treatment is ideal for individuals with a low BMI who may not be eligible for other body contouring procedures. Emsculpt is very effective in eliminating small pockets of fat on individuals who are physically fit. This technology has the potential to provide beneficial muscle tightening in anyone. A complimentary consultation is the best way to find out if you are a candidate for this procedure.

HOW MUCH DOES THE EMSCULPT PROCEDURE COST? $750 per treatment

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PREPARE FOR EMSCULPT TREATMENT?
Prior to the treatment you are not required to do anything special.

WHAT IS THE DAY OF TREATMENT LIKE?
On the day of the treatment, you are advised to wear comfortable clothing which allows flexibility for correct positioning during the treatment. You will be asked to remove all jewelry and electronic devices.

HOW LONG DOES AN EMSCULPT TREATMENT SESSION TAKE?
EMSculpt treatment sessions typically takes 30 minutes.

HOW MANY EMSCULPT TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
To maximize efficacy, we recommend a series of four treatments with sessions separated by at least two days.

DOES EMSCULPT HURT?
The procedure itself is painless. No anesthetic is required. You sit back while two panels are used to apply the High Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic energy. The sensation during the treatment is best compared to how your muscles feel during an intense workout.

EMSCULPT TREATMENT SUCCESS
Successful Emsculpt treatment outcome can be affected by smoking or excessive alcohol consumption, as well as: eating disorders or on-going medication. While no special diet is required, you are encouraged to eat healthy to help promote and maintain results.

HOW IS EMSCULPT TREATMENT RECOVERY?
There is no recovery period or downtime, and you can immediately resume your normal activities. The following day, you may experience muscle soreness similar to what you would feel after an intense workout.

IS THE EMSCULPT PROCEDURE SAFE?
Emsculpt is FDA-approved.

CAN I RETURN TO NORMAL ACTIVITIES AFTER MY TREATMENT?
Yes, you can. Mild soreness similar to that after a muscle workout is a normal and expected side effect from Emsculpt treatment. Often times, patients return to work after their Emsculpt session is over.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results from Emsculpt can be seen between 2 – 6 weeks from the first treatment. These results continue to improve over a six-month period. Emsculpt treatment can be continued past four sessions for even more noticeable results.

Making Time For Us – Finding JOY

My husband and I had a beautiful anniversary weekend away from the busy lives we lead with four kids. Its hard to steal moments to nurture our every growing relationship. After four kids and the chores that life has on a daily basis. Here are a few thoughts about making time for ‘US’

Random Thoughts (But So True)

We believe that time, like money, and even love, is an aspect that is eternally lacking.

If someone were to dare to reveal that they have a lot of time, then we often judge them; they are either “lucky” to have a lot of privileges, like money, or simply “lazy.” (hahaha)

Most of us grew up hearing cliched statements about time…all the time: Stop wasting time!” or “Time is precious,” or “Time’s a tickin!” 

Our relationship with time and actually, all of life’s essentials is heavily conditioned. (WE live in a society of over planning and filling up our days to the maximum. Working hard and really draining the tank of the essential fuel from pure JOY.

These belief systems about time especially shape our entire existence.

What if this entire understanding of time was completely wrong? What if this lack and fear based relationship to time was completely faulty? How would our lives look then? (a really fun excercise)

The reason we are rushed, stressed and overwhelmed in our lives is because we believe that all of life’s resources are in scarce supply. Go within yourself and you will see that this is true.

ney, time and resources – you will see that lurking within them is an idea that you could always have more of that…

more self-worth
more beauty
more love
more money
more time
more this and more that

BEING PRESENT

Presence is the ability to be fully aware of one’s present moment. It requires that we suspend thought, ideas, opinions and beliefs. We simply are. In quite the same way very young children simply are. They live unencumbered by agendas and doing things. They are fully engaged in their here and now. And they have all the time in the world. For them a few hours is a long time indeed.

Time is a construction.  

This means that we have power to change the construction. How? By changing our relationship to it. (MAKING TIME FOR EACHOTHER)

Which of course means changing all our relationships. Starting with the one we have with LIFE itself.

When we slow down and engage in life as it appears in here and now, without an attachment to how it should look like tomorrow, then time itself slows down.

This approach has embedded in it the premise of abundance.

There is no where to go but the to enter the present moment.

Without an attachment to the future or a specific outcome, we find ourselves released from expectation.

A release from expectation brings about a release of judgment and pressure.

Devoid of pressure, the present moment suddenly becomes infinite.

Do you see how you can change your entire relationship to time? And even love, money and so on?

Once you remove labels, judgment, identities, expectations, agendas and fantasies, then the present moment reveals itself to us. It may not always be pain-free, but our acceptance of it as it is, allows us to surrender to it.

When we surrender to the present moment, we realize that it is eternally giving. It is always giving us something. There is always a gift to be found in the present moment.

This revelation of continued abundance allows us to ease into life itself, with a deep and knowing trust that all will be as it is meant to.

Time then loses it’s hold on us.

We stop caring about tomorrow as much, and don’t care about filling our days with a thousand things.

We care about the quality of the present moment only.

Are we here or are we not?

If we are here, are we fully here?

If we are fully here, then we are only here and nowhere else.

If we are nowhere else then there is nowhere to be but here.

If we are only meant to be here then we are fully grateful to this moment.

And all of life opens itself to us.

We are now abundant.

Now, there is infinite time.

We now have made time and space for the infinite.
Here lies the end of COMPLAINING

And infinite joy.
