When we’re young our muscles continue growing larger until about the age of 30. A few years after that point, the process of muscle deterioration begins, and our muscles begin to lose mass.
At Naturallyou, we offer a new approach to fighting back against muscle deterioration. It’s called BodyTone, an FDA-cleared device that tones the muscles through bio-lectric energy pulses. It’s an easy way to tone and build new muscle mass in an efficient way.
What is BodyTone?
BodyTone is a muscle toning treatment that is completely non-invasive, involves no recovery, and delivers dramatic results. The system uses four panels that can be placed on different targeted muscle groups. The panels then deliver bio-lectric energy pulses down into the muscles. This energy makes the muscles contract, as they do with any exercise or movement. But unlike an exercise such as a crunch to tighten and strengthen abdominal muscles, where you can only perform a limited number of repetitions, BodyTone delivers about 20,000 muscle contractions in a 30-minute session. These contractions tone and sculpt the targeted muscle groups.
What are the benefits of BodyTone?
What are the benefits of doing 20,000 crunches? OK, that might not sound like much fun. If you ever could do that many, how about doing them in 30 minutes? Think of the muscle-building effect that would make. That’s BodyTone at Naturallyou. Some people would say it’s “cheating” to strengthen and define your muscles on your abdomen, arms, or calves with BodyTone. Or to lift your bottom without surgical enhancement. Really? It sounds like a great way to use your time. Thirty minutes of BodyTone equals countless hours at the gym. Our Naturallyou patients gladly take that tradeoff in time spent.
Fact is, BodyTone is FDA-cleared and safe. It’s a great way to feel great about the definition and contours of your body. What’s not to love?
Who is a good candidate for BodyTone?
BodyTone isn’t a weight-loss treatment; it’s a body-contouring treatment. These innovative treatments are intended for patients with a BMI of 25 or less. That would be in the “normal” category. BodyTone provides more noticeable results in patients who are thinner and have more muscle visibility. The core strength gains are the same for all patients, but the visible component of these treatments is more prevalent if you are at your ideal BMI for your height.
People with implanted devices, such as pacemakers, are not candidates as the energy of BodyTone can interfere with the device.
How many BodyTone treatments are required?
At Naturallyou, we advise patients to plan for a total of six BodyTone sessions, two per week for three weeks. This delivers the sculpting that patients seek. From there, we recommend maintenance BodyTone treatments every two to six months.

When will I see results from my BodyTone treatments?
Some patients notice increased muscle tone the day after their treatment. But your real results build over your six treatment sessions.
Will my results endure or are they like traditional exercise and quickly fleeting?
Many people become frustrated with traditional exercise because it seems that just a week or two of not working out and they’ve lost much of what they built. It’s different with the high-intensity muscle contractions with BodyTone. After your six BodyTone sessions, your body will continue to build muscle for several weeks. Of course, this will not last forever, but it is different than traditional workouts that way. At Naturallyou, we recommend maintenance BodyTone treatments every two to six months, depending on your individual goals.
What should I expect during treatment?
When BodyTone delivers the bio-lectric energy down into the muscle group, you simply feel the muscles contract. It’s an interesting feeling at first because you did nothing to actually initiate the contractions, unlike when you perform an exercise or other movement. The frequency of the contractions is a different feeling, but it is not painful.
What will I feel like after my BodyTone session?
After your session, your muscles will feel as if you’ve had a good workout. There isn’t any recovery.
Are there any risks with BodyTone muscle toning?
The FDA has cleared BodyTone for body contouring. Because BodyTone simply triggers muscle contractions, just as you would with exercise, there aren’t any risks or side effects. Yes, 20,000 muscle contractions, about what a typical session equals, isn’t a naturally attainable number, but BodyTone has been proven to have no side effects. Patients can have some mild muscle soreness, as you would have after a typical workout, but that’s it. And you can immediately go back to work or your normal activities after your BodyTone session at Naturallyou.
