Shock Yourself Into Shape

Image toning your muscles without actually moving them. That's the claim behind a new therapy some people are trying as an exercise-free way to slim down.

It's called Electric Muscle Stimulator or EMS.

Electrodes are placed over parts of the body a person wants to "spot trim". The electrodes make the muscles contract over and over.
