When it comes time to get in shape, starting out is never easy. Whether you’re getting in shape for a new year’s resolution, getting summer ready, or you’ve simply decided to change your lifestyle to be healthier for the long-term, those first few workouts are tough and make it hard to stay on track. Fortunately, there’s a new way of exercising that gives you a stronger, slimmer, and more toned body without using the treadmill or lifting weights. It all takes place at a medical gym.
A medical gym is a fairly new term that describes a provider with body contouring technology. They usually have devices that help you build muscle and get trim, among other things. If you’ve never heard of this before, it’s because the body contouring technology that helps you get fit and change your shape is relatively new. There’s a whole range of people who find medical gyms useful. From people who are looking for a kick-start with their fitness journey, to people who don’t have time to workout on their own, to people who are frustrated by one or two stubborn body areas, a medical gym can help.
Located in downtown Halifax, Body Works Med Spa & Wellness is Nova Scotia’s first and only medical gym. They’re also the only medical spa or medical gym in Atlantic Canada that’s focused exclusively on non-invasive medical aesthetics and wellness. Their team uses premium, non-invasive solutions to help people improve their confidence and quality of life with no downtime.
The team at Body Works Med Spa & Wellness says that for many people, Emsculpt Neo is the answer to their problems. This device has recently won awards for being “the best body shaping technology in the world.” Believe it or not, it permanently reduces fat in the treated area by an average of 30% and builds an average of 25% more muscle in the treated area. It’s the most researched body contouring technology on the market with dozens of clinical studies to back it up. The minimum recommended treatment plan is a series of four treatments on the same area (ex. abdomen). This will give you the kickstart you’re looking for, and if you’re interested in staying fit without working out, maintenance treatments are the way to go.
You can imagine that Emsculpt Neo would have a big impact on a person’s life. The team at Body Works Med Spa & Wellness works with postpartum moms who are struggling to get their bodies back, people who have always been annoyed by an area that never seems to change despite dieting and working out, folks who are ageing but want to stay strong, and even athletes who are looking to push past their plateaus.
Some of the more rewarding stories are worth sharing. One involves a lady who was unable to workout her upper body without getting migraines because of a previous car accident. After doing Emsculpt Neo on her arms, she could lift weights without problem. There have also been several men and women come to the clinic with diastasis recti, which is separation of the abdominal muscles. After doing Emsculpt Neo on their abdomen, their diastasis recti improved noticeably. One man went from rolling out of bed before his treatments to sitting up to get out of bed after his treatments. On average, Emsculpt Neo improves diastasis recti by 19%.
Body Works Med Spa & Wellness has a number of other exciting technologies that make it a medical gym. For example, Emsella is a chair that non-invasively strengthens the pelvic floor. Not only does it improve overall core strength, it also improves symptoms of stress, urge, and mixed urinary incontinence. Furthermore, by strengthening a weakened pelvic floor, Emsella can help people sleep through the night – with no invasive procedure, downtime, pain, or medication necessary. There’s also a device called EmTone, which is the world’s first and only non-invasive device to provide effective treatment of cellulite with no downtime. And Exilis Ultra is a multipurpose device that can be used on the body to permanently reduce fat pockets or on the face to bring back a more youthful appearance. All of these medical grade devices are approved by Health Canada.
