Are You Struggling With Symptoms of Pelvic Floor Weakness?

Urinary incontinence is a condition that affects thousands of people — women in particular — in the United States each year. One of the most common types of urinary incontinence occurs due to the weakening or stretching of the muscles in the pelvic floor. These muscles play an important role in supporting your pelvic organs, keeping your vaginal walls strong and controlling your bladder. If you have torn or weakened pelvic muscles, you may experience urinary incontinence, day-to-day pelvic discomfort or loss of sensation during sexual intercourse. These symptoms can be caused by:

  • Age
  • Pregnancy
  • Obesity
  • Menopause
  • Constipation
  • Chronic coughing

Currently FDA-approved to treat urinary incontinence, 95% of Emsella patients report improvement in their symptoms after their treatment — and many report improvement in other areas, as well.

What to Expect

Emsella uses waves of high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to trigger pelvic muscle contractions. The chair design lets you relax while the device sends HIFEM into your pelvic floor, triggering up to 11,000 muscle contractions (the equivalent of 11,000 Kegels) in just 28 minutes. Most clients report significant improvement in their symptoms after just one or two treatments, noting increased bladder control, vaginal tightness and sexual sensation.
