1. A method for toning a body region of a patient by applying a treatment using a treatment device which generates a time-varying magnetic field, the method comprising:

  • coupling a first applicator and a second applicator of the treatment device to the body region of the patient by a belt,wherein the body region comprises one of a buttocks or an abdomen,wherein the first applicator has a first magnetic field generating coil disposed in the first applicator and the second applicator has a second magnetic field generating coil disposed in the second applicator,wherein the first magnetic field generating coil has a first inductance and the second magnetic field generating coil has a second inductance, wherein the first inductance is equal to the second inductance, andwherein the first applicator and the second applicator are independently positionable, and independently coupled to the body region of the patient by the belt;

    charging a first capacitor and a second capacitor of the treatment device;

    discharging the first capacitor to the first magnetic field generating coil to generate a first time-varying magnetic field having a magnetic flux density in a range of 0.5 Tesla to 7 Tesla, an impulse duration in a range of 3 μ

    s to 1 ms, and a maximal value of a magnetic flux density derivative in a range of 0.5 kT/s to 400 kT/s;

    discharging the second capacitor to the second magnetic field generating coil to generate a second time-varying magnetic field having a magnetic flux density in a range of 0.5 Tesla to 7 Tesla, an impulse duration in a range of 3 μ

    s to 1 ms, and a maximal value of a magnetic flux density derivative in a range of 0.5 kT/s to 400 kT/s;

    generating a plurality of pulses of the first time-varying magnetic field;

    generating a first pulse of the first time-varying magnetic field such that the first pulse lasts for a time period, wherein the time period lasts from a beginning of a first impulse of the first time-varying magnetic field to a beginning of a next consecutive impulse of the first time-varying magnetic field;

    generating a second pulse of the second time-varying magnetic field such that the second pulse lasts from a beginning of a first impulse of the second time-varying magnetic field to a beginning of a next consecutive impulse of the second time-varying magnetic field, such that the first impulse of the second time-varying magnetic field is generated during the time period of the first pulse,wherein the plurality of pulses of the first time-varying magnetic field comprises a first plurality of pulses, a second plurality of pulses, and a third plurality of pulses,wherein the first plurality of pulses comprises a first repetition rate in a range of 1 Hz to 100 Hz,wherein the second plurality of pulses comprises a second repetition rate in a range of 10 Hz to 30 Hz, and wherein the first repetition rate differs from the second repetition rate,wherein the third plurality of pulses comprises a third repetition rate, wherein the third repetition rate differs from the first repetition rate and the second repetition rate,wherein the impulses are sinusoidal and biphasic; and

    applying the first time-varying magnetic field including the first, the second, and the third pluralities of the pulses of the first time-varying magnetic field to a muscle fiber, a neuromuscular plate, or muscle within the body region of the patient such that a muscle contraction within the body region is caused by each of the first, the second, and the third pluralities of the pulses of the first time-varying magnetic field.
