Electrical muscle stimulators are state-of-the-art units that are
scientifically designed to give your muscles a safe, fast and
effective “workout”. They are lightweight, portable and can be used
Under normal exercise, the brain sends impulses to the muscles
you are using, causing them to voluntarily contract. An electrical
muscle stimulation unit mimics the brain by delivering a gentle
electrical pulse to the brain that mimics the brains normal
impulses. Theses impulses cause the muscles to contract and then
relax, as if the message were coming from your brain. The body
responds by sending extra blood and oxygen to the area being
exercised. This increased circulation is the same natural process
used by the body when in need healing.
Used as directed, electrical muscle stimulators are very safe,
reliable and, in fact, have been used by the medical community for
many decades. The technology continues to be used extensively in
hospital settings, physical therapy clinics, and is used by
chiropractors, spas, and health clubs.
"The FDA has cleared many electrical muscle stimulators for
prescription use in treating medical conditions. Doctors may use
electrical muscle stimulators for patients who require muscle
re-education, relaxation of muscle spasms, increased range of
motion, prevention of muscle atrophy, and for treating other medical
conditions, which usually result from a stroke, a serious injury, or
major surgery. Again, the effect of using these devices is primarily
to help a patient recover from impaired muscle function due to a
medical condition, not to increase muscle size enough to affect
The Rhythm Touch Q is
approved for non-prescription sale
by the US Food and Drug Administration!
Since your muscles are contracting and relaxing in a similar
fashion to regular exercise, the sensation feels very similar to a
good workout. Some have described it as a mild tingling sensation.
Remember that since you control the strength of the impulses, you
also control the amount of stimulation and can adjust for your own
Within 3-to-4 weeks you should begin to see results, although you
may feel better after only a few sessions. Electronic muscle
stimulation technology suits the busy lifestyle of many, and it is
an exercise resource that can be used regardless of time, place,
weather and availability of facilities, think about it, you can even
watch television or read a book while you exercise.
Yes. There are many benefits from using the Rhythm Touch Q
electrical muscle stimulators. In addition to the cosmetic effects
of shaping and toning your body, they also help to remove toxin,
improve circulation and improve posture. They provide relief from
stress and discomfort caused by overworked muscles, and they
contribute to an overall relaxed and refreshed feeling.
You can begin at any age, although individuals in their
mid-twenties up to about age 50 achieve optimum benefits. Young
children and early teens probably don’t need the benefits of
Electronic Muscle Stimulation because during the early growing
years, they are generally active enough to get most of the exercise
that is necessary for healthy growth. Hormonal changes in the body
after 50 cause muscle activity to slow down, which is why you should
proceed slowly and increase activity gradually.

Electrical Nerve Stimulators) generally work to block pain by
sending "high frequency" continuous electrical pulses through the
skin. This effectively blocks the pain signal to the brain
from that area of the body.
Rhythm Touch Q
electrical muscle stimulators use "Low frequency" mild electrical
pulses through the skin using the same type of electrodes, but
rather than blocking the pain signals to the brain the low frequency
signals cause the body to release beta endorphins... the
body's own natural pain reliever!
