Franziska Hövener brings highly qualified EMS Training to Mallorca

EMS Training Mallorca combines the latest scientific training methods with long experience to help you to get in perfect shape.

The EMS Mallorca Training concept is based on personal fitness training with electro muscle stimulation (EMS).

2 x 20 minutes of EMS training per week is enough to produce effective and visible results. Metabolic and enzyme activity will improve and energy consumption rises.

The defining muscles are built up, excessive fat is converted into energy and thereby successfully reduced – an effect that continues for hours after the training! Muscles visibly stand out with greater definition and firmness. Up to a certain age, cellulite can be prevented or fought.

Now you can experience this ultimate work out where ever you want: at home, your office, yacht or beach… EMS Training Mallorca comes to you and brings everything you need to get you in shape in no time.

How does it work?
It replicates the natural principal of our central nervous system sending electrical impulses to control our muscle action.
Electrodes, in a comfortable and easy to use suit, activating all big (and small) muscle groups (legs, glute, abs, back, chest, arms, shoulders). More than 300 muscles are stimulated simultaneously including the hard to reach deep muscle layer, which protects our skeleton and improves stability. The training can be combined with active, sports-specific movements (Pilates, Golf, Boxing etc.). Each muscle group and the intensity of training will be adjusted according to your individual goals.

What makes it so effective?
It is so effective as 90% of the muscles are activated simultaneously and the muscle contractions are more intense than can be achieved through exercise alone. The agonist and antagonist muscles work simultaneously and deeper muscle groups are stimulated. Research shows that a 20 minute muscle stimulation training session (EMS) is more effective than a 90-120 minute conventional session of weight training and the training is not painful or harmful to your body

Problems with your back? Not a problem anymore:
Many people suffer from a muscular imbalance in their back, stomach or pelvis floor, which often results in chronic back pain. With EMS Training Mallorca you can target specific problem areas and help strengthen weaker muscle groups to correct imbalances. There is no strain on your joints as you don’t have to use any weights during your work out.

I never ever thought I would suffer from Insomnia, me? no… never ever…. I was a hit the pillow and sleep through WW3 type…. but as I became a women of a certain age… Insomnia hit me like a sledgehammer… and I could not function…. I couldn’t get off to sleep, and I couldn’t stay asleep and quite frankly it was actually very distressing on many levels. Not only are you exhausted mentally and physically, but to add to the mix, that the bogey men comes out at night and every teeny, tiny problem becomes enormous…   you see the start of a very tiring vicious circle.  So you lay there worrying and worrying… or get up, drink tea, watch night time TV (which I must tell you is complete rubbish!) and well tea is full of caffeine and makes you pee!  Then at 6 in the morning you crawl into the bed and yes, sleep like a log…. for an hour!!! Only to repeat the same exercise the following night…..sound familiar?

So Insomnia is something I have experienced and still do on some occasions… but I am lucky! This is one condition where I can actually poke myself with needles….

Acupuncture is REALLY effective in the treatment of Insomnia. There have been a few research projects conducted in the last few years and the results give an out right YES, acupuncture really is a wonderful way to treat insomnia…. in fact it is 90% effective!

Insomnia is quite complicated scientifically speaking. In order to sleep we need adequate levels of serotonin and melatonin racing around our body especially if we are anxious too. And guess what Insomnia makes us very anxious…. if we don’t have enough of these lovely neurohormones we just don’t sleep and become more anxious!

Melatonin is a Central nervous system depressant with anxiolytic, mild hypnotic and anticonvulsant actions …definitely what we need at bedtime… The pattern of melatonin secretion over a 24-hour period is widely accepted as a measure of circadian activity (our internal body clock… the one that makes us wake up at the same time each day without an alarm clock especially on Sunday morning!) in humans. This pattern is disrupted in insomnia. Compared to normal patients, those with insomnia have suppressed nocturnal outputs of melatonin and are more likely to have histories of depression.

The good news is…. Acupuncture consistently raises the Melatonin level (tested by 24 hour monitoring of levels in urine) Urine analysis showed that nocturnal physiological levels of ‘aMT6s’ (melatonin) increased following acupuncture and decreased during the morning and early afternoon.

So this is all wonderful proof that acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for Insomnia…. So if you are counting sheep on a regular basis here is your answer.

I am always on the lookout for great ideas, information and recipes for healthy eating, so was thrilled when my friend Anne Scott, Global Community Manager for Girl Gone International told me about a great website called La Dolce Eater, run by two advocates for looking and feeling good through healthy and nutritious food, Nicola Tordoff-Sohne and Mara Pellizzari. It has very interesting posts which include some delicious and healthy recipes and they are currently running a superb offer of a FREE download of their new 96 page e-book, “7 Days of Superfood on a Budget“.

I am always a little sceptical about anything that is for FREE, but this really is excellent. It is well written with beautiful and tempting photographs, superfood information and simple recipes that include easy to find ingredients that most of us already use. So, if you are looking to start 2013 on a healthier note, this is well worth a look.
