Emsella Pelvic Floor Strengthening
The pelvic floor is responsible for more than you think! Sexuality, bladder control, pelvic organ support, and your bowel habits. If you find that coughing, sneezing, laughing, or just getting excited makes you pee your pants a little, sex is not what is used to be, having bowel movements is more difficult, or your tissues are not where they used to be – you’re not alone.
Pelvic floor strengthening with the Emsella Kegel Chair works to relieve incontinence by stimulating and strengthening the underlying muscles of the pelvic floor. During the treatment, you sit on a specially designed chair which delivers electromagnetic energy to the pelvic floor muscles, forcing them to contract. Over the course of your treatment, these contractions strengthen the weakened muscles and restore neuromuscular control of the bladder. A single 30-minute treatment stimulates over 11,000 of these muscular contractions – which is the equivalent of doing 11,000 Kegel exercises!
While you still have your clothes on, sitting on the pelvic floor strengthening chair provides High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate deep pelvic floor muscles and restore neuromuscular control. A single session creates over 11,000 supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, which are extremely important to strengthen the pelvic floor.
All of this is done without any effort on your part and without getting undressed!
Each treatment is just 30 minutes long, and patients typically require two treatments per week, for 3 weeks for best results. However – every patient is different! Our Team will determine the best course of treatment to meet your specific needs and achieve the best results.
How does the Kegel chair feel?
This treatment is completely non-invasive. During your treatment, you remain fully clothed, and simply take a seat on the specially designed chair for a half hour. You will experience tingling and will feel your pelvic floor muscles contracting during your treatment, but the sensations are not painful. You can resume all of your normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Most patients see improvement after six sessions, scheduled twice a week. You may observe improvement after a few sessions depending on the severity of your condition. The benefits develop over the series of treatments. Many patients also have experienced other benefits, such as enhanced orgasms. After your series of treatments, we recommend 2 sessions per year to maintain your results.
