Types of Electrical Stimulation Therapy
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
EMS is a technique that uses electrical currents to stimulate muscle contractions, thereby increasing muscle strength and refining the appearance of muscles. This form of electrical stimulation therapy is ideal for toning and sculpting your body without invasive procedures.
Electrical Nerve Stimulation (ENS)
ENS focuses on using electrical currents to target sensory nerve fibers, aiming to control pain sensations and provide pain-relieving effects. It’s commonly used to manage chronic pain and support the rehabilitation of neurological conditions.
Benefits of Electrical Stimulation Therapy
Electrical stimulation therapy offers a range of benefits, including:
- Improved range of motion
- Decreased swelling
- Enhanced body awareness
- Reduced pain sensations
- Non-invasive and customizable treatments

- Ligament Sprains and Muscle Strains Treatment: Supports recovery from ligament sprains and muscle strains by promoting healing, reducing inflammation, and restoring range of motion.
- Prolonged Immobilization Recovery: Helps patients regain muscle strength, improve circulation, and restore range of motion after experiencing prolonged immobilization.
Chronic Pain Management and Rehabilitation
- Chronic Pain Management: Targets sensory nerve fibers to help manage chronic pain and provide pain-relieving effects as an alternative or complementary treatment to traditional pain management techniques.

- Neuromuscular Re-education: Retrains muscles and nerves that have lost function due to injury, illness, or surgery, improving muscle memory and motor control.
Injury Prevention and Treatment

- Increased muscle strength
- Refined muscle appearance
- Non-invasive and customizable treatments
- No incisions, scarring, or downtime
Tone Treatment Process at Good Vibe Medical
Step 1: Consultation and Assessment
Before beginning the Tone treatment, you’ll have a thorough consultation with one of our experienced practitioners. During this session, we’ll discuss your goals, assess your current condition, and determine whether Tone is the right treatment option for you.
Step 2: Personalized Treatment Plan
Based on your consultation and assessment, our practitioner will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This plan will outline the optimal number of sessions, treatment frequency, and targeted muscle groups to help you achieve your desired results.
Step 3: Preparation for Treatment
On the day of your treatment, you’ll be guided through the process of preparing for the Tone session. You’ll be asked to wear comfortable clothing and remove any jewelry or accessories that may interfere with the treatment. Our practitioner will ensure you’re in a comfortable position before starting the therapy.
Step 4: Tone Treatment
During the Tone treatment, our practitioner will place self-adhesive electrodes on the targeted muscle groups. The applicators will emit low-voltage electrical currents, inducing involuntary muscle contractions. You’ll feel your muscles contract, similar to what you would experience during a workout. The intensity of the electrical current can be adjusted progressively to ensure your comfort throughout the session.
Step 5: Post-Treatment Care
After your Tone treatment, there’s no recovery period or downtime required. You can return to your normal activities immediately. Some patients may notice mild redness or warmth in the treated area, which should subside within a few hours. Our practitioner will provide you with any necessary post-treatment care instructions and schedule follow-up sessions as needed to help you achieve the best results.
Step 6: Monitoring Progress and Adjusting Treatment
As you progress through your Tone treatment sessions, our practitioner will monitor your results and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan. This ensures that you continue to see improvements and achieve your desired muscle strength, toning, and definition.
What is electrical stimulation therapy and how does it work?
Electrical stimulation therapy uses low-voltage electrical currents to stimulate muscle contractions, nerve fibers, and blood flow in targeted areas. The therapy is often used for pain management, rehabilitation, and muscle toning, depending on the specific treatment and patient needs.
What are the aesthetic benefits of electrical stimulation therapy?
The Tone treatment at Good Vibe Medical utilizes electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to target specific muscle groups for toning and definition. This non-invasive solution helps to increase muscle strength, sculpt muscles, and achieve a more defined appearance without the need for surgery or downtime.
How many sessions will I need for the Tone treatment?
The number of sessions required depends on your personal objectives. Your practitioner will recommend the optimal number of sessions and tailor treatment times and frequency to obtain the best results.
Are there any risks or side effects associated with electrical stimulation therapy?
Electrical stimulation therapy, including Tone, is generally safe and well-tolerated. However, it is not recommended for patients with pacemakers, epilepsy, or damaged skin in the treatment area. Some patients may experience mild redness or warmth at the applicator site.
Is Tone painful and how soon can I expect results when combined with other treatments?
Most patients find Tone comfortable, and any discomfort can be minimized by adjusting the intensity of the electrical current. Combining Tone with other treatments like physical therapy and massage can enhance your recovery and overall wellness.
Results vary by individual, but many patients begin to see improvements in the treatment area after their first few sessions, with gradual enhancements in muscle strength and definition.
