The use of electricity for cosmetic purposes is not a new-fangled technique, in actual fact it dates back to the end of the 19th Century. In today’s world electrotherapy can be used in a variety of ways not only for rehabilitation but also for cosmetic purposes.

Electrotherapy can be an excellent way to help tone your skin both on the face and the body as well as aiding weight loss, reducing the appearance of cellulite and targeting specific areas of the face or body. It is a healthy, fast and effective treatment that works by using electrodes to send electric impulses to the targeted muscles which causes them to contract. For many years the medical profession and physiotherapists have also been using this technique to help people through rehabilitation therapies.


Amongst the many benefits of electrotherapy the key ones are that the treatment is pain free and non-invasive, helping you to achieve fast results. It works by tightening the deep muscles both in the body and face and at the same time stimulates lymphatic drainage, reducing excess fluids which subsequently reduces puffiness and toxins within the body. It can also help aid circulation around the body. There are a range of programs available which deliver different strengths of stimulation. After a consultation with your therapist, the most appropriate program will be agreed for you to achieve your desired results. During the consultation your therapist will also ensure that you are suitable for this type of treatment.

Treatment sessions are carried out in exactly the same way as other beauty treatments, in a quiet, comfortable environment such as a treatment room where you can relax on a massage couch. Each treatment may take between 45 and 60 minutes. We have highlighted the main areas of how electrotherapy may be able to help you.



Electrotherapy helps to stimulate the lymphatic drainage system which helps to reduce excess fluid and flush out toxins. The overall effect reduces puffiness in the skin, leaving the skin looking and feeling more vibrant and healthier.


Through the use of the electrodes sending electric impulses to the muscles, the muscles become stimulated and become more toned in appearance. The overall effect of your skin will become noticeably improved.


Cellulite can be very difficult to treat and can make people very self-conscious of their bodies if they suffer with cellulite. Cellulite is an accumulation of fat cells which become trapped in the collagen and the elastin fibres underneath the skin. Electrotherapy can be a very effective way to break the fat cells up, noticeably improving the look of the skin.

Weight Loss

Electrotherapy can help the aid of weight loss due to the stimulation of the muscles from the electric impulses. Any treatment plan should be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise plan.
