Does it work?

Of course!  The elements used, such as electro-stimulation, infrared and ultrasound, individually have numerous studies to show their effectiveness.  Project Physique in using a system that brings all the elements together to work synergistically, which is why we are so unique.  See the results here

Italy by Sauna Italia.  40 years in the beauty industry.  2 doctors designed the equipment to ensure safety, effectiveness and improving health.

Is there anyone else in NZ doing this?

Project Physique in Dunedin, is the only place in Australasia with this system! These treatments are popular and widespread in Europe, Asia and USA.

 

Electro-Stimulation

Does it hurt?

Definitely not.  The electric impulses are not concentrated in one specific point, but evenly distributed across the surface of the electric pads. There are no painful hotspots conveying sharp kicks.  The intensity is adjusted your comfort.

Is it safe?

Absolutely, electro-stimulation uses low frequency current to stimulate the muscles. It is not only safe, but extremely efficient, as 90% of the muscles are involved in the workout.  Electro-stimulation is not "shocking" you, it's contracting your muscles like you would if you were lifting weights or doing resistant training.

Can the electric current harm my heart?

No, the low-frequency impulse exclusively activates the striated skeletal muscles. Organs and the heart and other muscle tissue are not reached.

Are there any contraindications?

Electro-stimulation must not be used in those with epilepsy or on people who wear a pacemaker.
In addition, stimulation must never be applied around the stomach area in women who are pregnant, or for people suffering from a hernia.

 

Infrared

Is Infrared Therapy Safe?

No serious adverse effects have been reported with infrared, and this type of treatment seems to be safe for the majority of people, even those who can’t normally tolerate other types of saunas or heat treatments. Infrared wavelengths are luckily too long to be perceived by the eyes, so they don’t damage sensitive eye tissues like other light therapies can.

Does it hurt?

Infrared light is also considered “gentle radiant heat,” so although it can penetrate up to 1.5 inches (almost four centimeters) beneath the skin, it isn’t painful and doesn’t cause a burning effect.

Contraindications

Contraindicated for those who have a fever, neoplasia or acute inflammation.  Safe for all ages.

Ultrasound Therapy

Contraindications

  • Malignancy (history of malignancy is NOT a contraindication – DO NOT treat over tissue that is, or considered to be malignant)
