CM Slim for a slimmer, fitter and healthier body
The benefits of thousands of crunches and squats, all from the comfort of a bed. Does this sound like a dream? It is not.
CM Slim is the new frontier in aesthetic medicine for increasing muscle volume and tone and reducing excess localised fat – rapidly and without effort.What makes this possible is a cutting-edge technology, which to date is only available at a few selected spa and medical centres across Europe. ADLER Spa Thermae Resort in Tuscany is one of them.
How and why it works
CM Slim is a device conceived for medical use only. It generates focused electromagnetic waves that interact with the nervous fibres connected to the muscles (called motor neurons), thereby triggering supramaximal muscle contractions that would be difficult to achieve through training, no matter how intense. The rapid contraction of these fibres induces an increase in cell metabolism, which leads to spontaneous lipolysis (fat breakdown) in the treated area.At the same time, muscle fibres increase in volume, producing thicker, more defined muscles. The processes triggered by the CM Slim treatment are very similar to those induced by traditional physical exercise, but with much better and faster results and, more importantly, without the need for exhausting training programmes. The high-intensity electromagnetic energy is delivered via two hand-pieces that look like big hands. These are applied to different body areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, hips, legs and arms, without the dermal layers being affected.
More than just aesthetic benefits
Besides being extraordinarily effective in slimming, toning and defining the body, CM Slim also offers many advantages in terms of health and physical performance. This is because increasing muscle tone helps to improve body posture and prevent posture-related complaints such as back pain, headaches, joint pain, leg swelling and more. Additionally, the muscle training induced by electromagnetic waves can also support post-traumatic rehabilitation or the resumption of physical training after prolonged inactivity. Another potential benefit lies in the reduction of body fat and the health risks it poses. In fact, excess body fat and abdominal fat in particular is linked to a number of metabolic and cardiovascular diseases, including hypertension, stroke, atherosclerosis, type II diabetes, hepatic steatosis (fatty liver) and more. This is why we can say that the benefits offered by this treatment stretch far beyond improved aesthetics.
What to expect from a session
CM Slim sessions start with a preliminary medical examination, during which the areas to be treated are assessed and the wave intensity required to meet the patient’s individual need is determined. In the following 30 minutes, the guest lies on a bed while their muscles perform the equivalent of about 20,000 contractions.
CM Slim is a safe, non-invasive technology that causes no discomfort whatsoever – on the contrary, many guests report experiencing a pleasant feeling during the treatment and a sense of lightness and energy immediately afterwards. Sessions can be scheduled every other day, and results are noticeable after just a few sessions.
A stay at our resort is a splendid opportunity to take advantage of this technology and get into shape without taking the excess weight back home with you.
