frequently asked questions
Unfortunately the Iyashi Dôme is not suitable for pregnant women.
I wear a prosthetic (breast implants, hip or knee replacements...), can i have iyashi dôme sessions?
Yes, wearing a prosthesis is not a contraindication for Iyashi Dôme sessions.
how long does an iyashi dôme session last
An Iyashi Dôme session lasts 30 minutes, and is composed of 2 steps each lasting 15 minutes. The 1st 15-minute period is spent lying face down; you will relax and feel a “sunbathing” effect. During the 2nd 15-minute period, lying on your back, a deeper physical effect will take place; the sweating process is initiated during this part of the session.
is the iyashi dôme dangerous?
No, quite the opposite as the far infrared rays emitted by our Japanese sauna are beneficial for your health. This is the reason why various hospitals use incubators equipped with far infrared heaters to keep new born babies warm. If it weren’t for far infrared radiation there would be no life on earth.
why is it necessary to drink water before AND after the session
In order to make sure that you are properly hydrated before and after your treatment.
What can Venus Legacy™ do for me?
Venus Legacy™ has multiple applications for both the face and body. For the face, Venus Legacy™ is indicated for lines and wrinkles, new blood vessel growth, and for skin tightening. For the body, Venus Legacy™ is used to decrease cellulite, reduce circumference, increase skin tightening, and improve stretch marks.
How long will it take to show results?
Typically, a patient will see results after three treatments or even before. Each patient differs and results will vary. The Venus Legacy™ requires you to exercise and eat well in conjunction with the treatments.
When will I see results, and how long do they usually last?
Most patients typically see results after the third treatment, however, many have noted results sooner. With FDA approval, Venus Legacy™ has documented its results to last a minimum 18 months but will continue to last if one session per quarter is maintained after the original series.
How many treatments will I need?
In general, we recommend a series of six Venus Legacy™ treatments for the face, spaced apart at weekly intervals. For the body, we recommend six to ten treatments performed weekly. After your series, to maintain your results, we suggest having a single treatment four times a year.
How long does a typical treatment take?
Venus Legacy™ features the Sculpt Fx™ largest treatment area for faster coverage than any other standard hand-piece. Treatment times are up 4 times faster, so you will spend around 25 minutes for a facial treatment and up to 60 minutes for a large area body treatment.
WHAT IS EMS TRAINING?
EMS stands for electrical muscle stimulation or electromyostimulation. This is a training program in which the muscles are stimulated and thus strengthened by electrodes integrated into a suit. The suit and therefore also the electrodes are connected to an external EMS training device. The intensity of the current can be adjusted individually for each pair of electrodes via the EMS device.
WHO IS EMS TRAINING SUITABLE FOR?
In principle, electrical muscle stimulation is suitable for every healthy person. EMS training is not suitable for people with an increased risk of thrombosis (blood clots), increased risk of bleeding, cardiac arrhythmia, electronic implants such as pacemakers or pumps, seizure disorders (epilepsy), fresh herniated discs in the area of application, bone diseases and unhealed bone fractures in the area of application, coronary stents, cosmetic implants (e.g.B. breast implants) in the field of application, open skin diseases and wounds, fever and general diseases that could worsen due to physical strain, malignant or inflammatory diseases in the field of application, unhealed operations in the field of application and pregnant women. Even new mothers should usually wait at least six weeks after delivery before starting with EMS training.
First-time users of EMS training should always consult the contraindications to the use of whole-body EMS in the instructions for use of the EMS device.
It is particularly important that the user feels himself in good health to practice sports.
HOW DOES EMS TRAINING WORK?
For EMS training, first put on your cotton underwear (cycling pants and short-sleeved T-shirt), then the StimaWELL® stimulation suits and the corresponding strap electrodes. If you own the stimulation suit, you can do without the underwear and feel the current even more intensively. The electrodes integrated in the suit are connected to the StimaWELL® EMS training device. Subsequently, your training intensity can be adjusted individually for the different muscle areas.
As a beginner you start with an EMS program with mild electrical impulses, shorter contraction phases and longer pause phases. As soon as your program starts, the same happens as with a conventional strength training with weights.
To train a muscle, it must be contracted and then relaxed. The necessary impulse is transmitted from your brain to your muscles via the nerve pathways as soon as you start training with weights. The same is exactly happening during EMS training with the difference that the impulses are not coming from the brain but from the electrodes on your skin.
Pause time between the electrical impulses are different depending on the EMS program in use. EMS training is most effective if dynamic exercises such as sit-ups or squats are performed in addition to the electrical stimulation. An exact video tutorial of the exercises is available for the selected EMS programs.
IS EMS TRAINING DANGEROUS?
At StimaWELL® we have been experts in the field of electrical muscle stimulation for over 30 years and therefore we know exactly what to look out for training with electrostimulation. EMS training is basically not dangerous. Our trainers adapt the exercise program individually to each fitness level so that no one feels excessive strain. We have built a measurement function into our EMS devices which shows the current intensity in real time in order to keep the EMS user safe.
Muscles are already used to small electrical impulses. With every movement, these are directed from our brain to our muscles via the nerve pathways. However, it is important to keep in mind that
muscles need a longer regeneration time after EMS training than after conventional strength training. Therefore, there should always be a minimum break of 48 hours between two EMS training sessions.
