The EMSella is the first device of it’s kind. FDA cleared for treating urinary incontinence, the EMSella is a chair that uses a high-intensity electromagnetic field (like an MRI) to activate motor neurons in the pelvic floor.
E.M. stands for Electro-Magnetic, and Sella is derived from the Greek language, meaning chair. Thus, giving the name EMSella.
While this type of treatment is non-invasive, it offers deep penetration into the targeted tissues of the pelvic floor and stimulates the muscles. In as few as 3 weeks, patients strongly agree their incidence of stress urinary incontinence was improved by 98%!
How Does It Work?
Many women experience a condition called stress urinary incontinence (SUI) that occurs when your bladder leaks urine during physical activity or exertion. It may happen when you cough, laugh, jump, sneeze, or exercise. SUI is most commonly caused by vaginal childbirth and hormonal changes due to age. The stretching and increased laxity of the tissues causes the bladder to sag over the anterior wall of the vagina, which can interfere with the proper function of the bladder when it is full.
EMSella is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for stress urinary incontinence and urge incontinence. The treatment is delivered by comfortably sitting in an ergonomic chair fully clothed, where electromagnetic technology penetrates the targeted tissues of the pelvic floor and stimulates the muscles, building up muscle strength and restoring the support for the pelvic organs. In doing so, the pelvic floor muscles are strengthened and dramatically improved, the vaginal walls are tightened, urinary and urge incontinence is decreased and sexual satisfaction is increased.
EMSella is so powerful, during one 28-minute treatment, it will provoke 11,200 contractions, which is equivalent to performing 11,200 Kegel exercises!
How Many Treatments Are Necessary?
We recommend 6 treatments total. The treatments are performed twice a week for three weeks time. Conditions improve each session throughout your series of treatments. Some clients however, notice immediate improvement!
Does it hurt? Is there downtime?
No. The EMSella does not hurt at all. In fact, the treatment is quite therapeutic. You simply sit and relax for 28 minutes. This makes for a perfect lunchtime procedure.
The results are both instantaneous and on-going. Because the treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive, there is no recovery or downtime. Just come in for your appointment, then return to your daily activities.
