Frequently asked questions
ElectreCare is committed to your health and wellbeing. You can lose weight in an effective, but healthy manner. We want you to feel good about how you look, live your life with confidence, health and inner strength.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses.
The impulses are generated by a device and are delivered through electrodes on the skin near to the muscles being stimulated. The electrodes are generally pads that adhere to the skin. The impulses mimic the action potential that comes from the central nervous system, causing the muscles to contract.
The ElectreCare concept is based on the scientific and medically approved computerized electro-therapy stimulation of your muscles while you relax, and in total safety. Electrodes are attached to your skin, in a pattern tailored to your own specific problem areas and the electro stimulation is like you doing 1200 sit-ups, leg lifts and push-ups. All in one hour! We call it ‘passive exercise.’
If you stick to the eating plan and don’t miss your treatments you are assured of achieving weight loss, in a fast, but healthy way. All of our clients are satisfied that they got real value for money and they lost their desired weight.
We encourage you to have healthy eating habits for the rest of your life so you will avoid the see-saw weight affect. While you are having therapy we will also suggest a low-carbohydrate eating plan. The two go hand in hand.
There is no need to bring additional clothes, or anything at all. Because we need to attach the stimulation electrodes directly to the skin, you’ll need to strip down to your underwear. If you prefer you can wear a bikini, but because each treatment room is totally private, the easier it is for you to come in and out, the better. Our therapists are totally professional.
Yes and no. We want you to be strict for the four weeks of therapy we spend together, because this way you will get the best results. Do you really want to lose those pounds, safely in this short period? This ‘diet’ gives you quite a bit of choice and freedom, it is easy to stick to, there is heaps of food and best of all, it has great flexibility for those meals that you are eating at a café or restaurant.
No. Think of the chemicals and preservatives these foods must have! This means toxins, and toxins equals cellulite. You also won’t weigh foods, measure foods and you’ll never again need to count another calorie.
It is very low in carbohydrates and you’ll find there’s lots of salad, vegetables and lean protein. There’s even a little fat which not only is proven to dramatically help speed up your metabolism, but helps give that feeling that you’re not on a ‘diet’!
Our treatment plans are spread over a minimum of 4 weeks. We will also measure you and weigh you twice a week to help inspire you to stay on track!
Not even a diet of water and bread would do this in isolation! And besides, you would have flabby unattractive loose skin and muscles. The ElectreCare system is about electro-muscular exercise which means you will be firming and toning your body. (Well actually, we will be doing it for you). On your own, with a good diet, over this same period, you can lose weight and one dress size, with our system, you can lose two dress sizes! You lose weight and your toned body loses inches and cellulite.
Definitely not. But it has been kept a secret! Sports doctors, physiotherapists and athletes have been using this style of therapy for years to tone and strengthen their muscles. And with us, you are in the very best hands. Madame Et Monsieur has been in operation since 1983 with nearly 100 outlets world wide. This makes us the biggest and most experienced electro-therapy clinic in the world.
Well if you go back to eating those foods you know you shouldn’t then, yes. But by now you should have developed a very healthy eating regime and your new look will inspire you to stick to it. We have beautifully thin clients like Morgan Fairchild, Chaka Khan, Lorna Durn, Shirley MacLain, Stevie Wonder, William Shatner, Marie Osmond, Miss Africa & Universe, Miss Beverly Hills, Dr. George Semel (Cosmetic Surgeon) and Mr Ron Meir & wife: President of Universal Studios come in regularly for a ‘toning and firming’ session, so you may well want to do this. After all, how else could you give your muscles a work out equivalent to 1200 push ups and sit ups-and all in your lunchbreak.
They say there is no gain without pain. Well this doesn’t hurt, but, you are always aware that your muscles are being worked like crazy. Most of our clients say the sensation is ‘weird’ in the beginning, but they get used to it very quickly.
Well, you could think of the new clothes you’ll be buying in four weeks, or the more energy you will have to do more in your life. We have magazines, but many of our clients like to bring a book they are reading. Perhaps you may like to bring a your iPod, iPad or any media device.

Although the main issue is not losing weight but rather shaping and toning the un-firmed body area, following ElectreCare Therapy treatments, most people will lose weight. ElectreCare Therapy accelerates the natural process of the body muscles contraction, imitates muscles activation, resulting in a shaped and firm body. Hence, if you do not change your nutritional habits while conducting ElectreCare Therapy treatments, you will probably end up losing weight, due to the fact that the consumption of available energy (ATP) would not be enough and other energy source like fatty acids and glucose will be used for this purpose.
There is not one single explanation for why cellulite occurs. However one of the most generally accepted and agreed explanations are as follows: Cellulite is a process that starts deep in the dermal layer of the skin. Cellulite occurs when blood vessels begin to break down (due to dehydration and deprivation of cell building nutrients) allowing water to leak into the tissues. As a result, excess fluid accumulates outside the cells, causing deterioration of the Collagen and Elastin that are responsible for the skin structure. Sub-dermal fat cells clump together and begin to migrate upwards. At second stage the vascular breakdown continues and excess fluid continues to accumulate causing continuance breakdown of Collagen & Elastin. Fat cells continue to move up and changes in the skin texture become visible. In the third stage more excess fluid accumulates, Collagen & Elastin continue to breakdown as well as the connective tissues fat cells continue to move up and becomes surrounded by fibrous bands called “Septa” and the changes in the skin texture become more visible. In stage four, the connective tissues continue to breakdown, the Septa becomes harder and thicker and the change in the skin texture is always visible.
With ElectreCare Therapy, we can prevent and improve the cellulite condition by activating the muscles, increase the blood circulation, accelerating the lymphatic drainage and metabolism of the tissues. By that we can reduce the wasted water, encourage production of connective tissues and stimulate the production of Collagen and Elastin. As a result of the treatment the cellulite is likely to reduce and the problematic area will look much more toned.
ElectreCare Therapy affects the fat layers in an indirect way since during the ElectreCare Therapy treatment the body will consume energy which is more than the free energy that exists in the body. The sources to that energy will be fatty acids and glucose. Due to the fact that the energy level is different from one person to another, we cannot tell exactly when an individual will start to burn fat, it is important to note that they will.
The ElectreCare Therapy allows aestheticians to budge localize fat and problem areas due to being able to locate electro pads on the relevant muscle. ElectreCare Therapy is non-invasive, pain free, incredibly effective and far less expensive. Since it works on accelerating the body’s own bio-electrical process it is incredibly safe and NATURAL.
Absolutely! Funnily enough the toner and fitter often get the best results, since the current gets to the muscle in a person with less fat more effectively than one with more fat. This is not to say a larger person does not get enough benefit. It is a greatly advised that individuals commit to a healthy lifestyle and eating plan since inch loss is instant!
Unlike most body shaping devices, ElectreCare Therapy is used in many treatments to include slimming and toning, lymphatic drainage, face lifting and tightening. ElectreCare Therapy is a lazy person’s gym, it involves no activity on your part, so as long as you are able to lie down and are able to have this type of treatment (micro-current), everybody is a candidate, including the elderly looking to avoid muscle degeneration.
Yes, Early research has been proven that NMES increases muscle strength(1)
