Functional Magnetic Stimulation (FMS) Treatment

FMS Technology Treatment helps patients achieve muscles mass without physical exertion.

It is typically used for muscles toning & targeted body areas shaping. It is also used for postpartum recovery & improving sexual health when targeting pelvic floor muscles strengthening.

What Is Functional Magnetic Stimulation (FMS)?

Functional Magnetic Stimulation (FMS) technology stimulates muscles, inducing supramaximal contractions to build muscle cells at an accelerated rate compared to traditional strength training. By generating electrical currents in the body’s tissues, FMS can facilitate up to 50,000 muscle contractions in 30 minutes. This makes it ideal for toning the arms, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and calves. This process simulates the effects of exercise without physical exertion. Additionally, FMS can strengthen pelvic floor and back muscles to address urinary incontinence, improve sexual health, and provide chronic pain relief from sports injuries.

Using Tesla Former and Tesla Chair

The Tesla Former and Tesla Chair are devices used for Functional Magnetic Stimulation (FMS) treatment, utilising high-intensity magnetic fields to achieve muscle activation.

How Does the Tesla Former Work?

It uses a coil applicator to target various muscle groups, causing deep muscle contractions similar to intensive exercise. It can also target different muscle groups to improve muscle mass and core stability. It has been scientifically proven that with multiple treatments, the patient may have increased muscle mass in the targeted area.

How Does the Tesla Chair Work?

It offers a convenient seated solution where patients can receive treatment to strengthen the pelvic floor and back muscles while fully clothed. It can treat pelvic floor dysfunction and urinary incontinence.

Indications for Functional Magnetic Stimulation (FMS) Treatment

Body Toning and Strengthening:
  • People looking to achieve a more defined abdomen, lifted and toned buttocks, defined arms with toned biceps and triceps, and strong, shapely legs.
  • Fitness enthusiasts who want to supplement their workouts with more targeted stimulation.
Weak Pelvic Floor and Back Muscles:
  • People suffering from urinary incontinence due to weakened pelvic floor and back muscles.
  • Women seeking to strengthen pelvic floor muscles after childbirth for improved sexual health.
  • Patients experiencing chronic back pain.

FMS Treatment Procedure

The procedure for Functional Magnetic Stimulation (FMS) treatment is straightforward and typically includes the following steps:

Initial Consultation

A doctor will assess the patient’s medical history, treatment goals, and suitability for FMS. Specific areas of concern are identified, whether for muscle toning or pelvic floor therapy.

Treatment Session
Tesla Former:

The applicator coil is placed over the targeted body area, with the patient lying down or seated, depending on the area to be treated. The doctor starts the applicator at a low intensity, gradually increasing to a tolerable level. The muscles contract rhythmically due to the magnetic field. Sessions usually last 20-30 minutes, providing thousands of contractions during the treatment.

Tesla Chair:

The patient sits fully clothed in the chair, which is designed to stimulate the pelvic floor and core muscles. The device stimulates the targeted muscles without requiring any effort from the patient. Sessions also last 20-30 minutes, with an intensity level adjusted to the patient’s comfort.

Post-Treatment Care

Patients can resume normal activities immediately after each session, as no downtime is required. Mild muscle soreness may occur due to the contractions, similar to a workout, and usually resolves within a day.

Follow-Up Sessions

A series of sessions is recommended to achieve optimal results, often ranging from 8 to 12 treatments over several weeks. Progress is regularly monitored, and adjustments to the treatment protocol can be made to enhance results.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    Is Functional Magnetic Stimulation (FMS) treatment painful?

    No, FMS treatment is non-invasive and painless. Patients typically experience strong muscle contractions, which many find comfortable. The intensity can be adjusted according to the patient’s comfort level.

    Are there any side effects associated with FMS treatment?

    Mild muscle soreness similar to post-exercise discomfort may occur after the treatment but usually resolves within a day. Other side effects are rare because FMS is non-invasive.

    Who should avoid FMS treatment?

    People with certain medical conditions, such as pacemakers, metallic implants, or recent surgical wounds, should avoid FMS therapy. Pregnant women are also advised not to undergo this treatment. Consulting a doctor before starting FMS is recommended.

    How long does each treatment session last?

    Each session typically lasts 20-30 minutes. The duration may vary slightly depending on the specific treatment protocol and targeted areas.

    Can different muscle groups be targeted in the same session?

    The Tesla Former applicator can be repositioned to target different muscle groups during a single session. However, the doctor usually recommends focusing on one area per session for optimal results.
