What is Emsella?
Emsella uses high intensity electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to cause deep pelvic floor muscle stimulation non-invasively. Emsella is a clothed, painfree, and relaxing, 28-minute treatment, where the patient sits in the Emsella chair, and the Emsella machine stimulates the pelvic floor, similar to doing thousands of Kegel exercises.
Similar to the Emsulpt Neo, that tones the muscles in your abdomen, flank, buttocks, legs, and arms, the Emsella works the pelvic floor muscles for a tighter, more toned, stronger, pelvic floor (yes, that is a great thing).
How does Emsella work?
Emsella delivers thousands of ‘supramaximal’ muscle contractions, non-invasively, to the pelvic floor by utilizing high intensity electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy. This is an extremely powerful focused magnetic field. Supramaximal contractions are muscle contractions that are much more intense than can be performed by exercises (Kegels) alone. Emsella can strengthen the pelvic floor in order improve the quality of life of men and women treated with the Emsella chair.
Emsella Mechanism of Action:
The key mechanisms of action for Emsella to work to strengthen and raise the pelvic floor include:
- HIFEM energy that causes deep pelvic floor muscle stimulation
- In-depth penetration and stimulation of the entire pelvic floor area from the focused electromagnetic energy
- Thousands of supramaximal (beyond what we can perform ourselves) pelvic floor muscle contractions to help muscle ‘re-education’ (raise and strengthen the pelvic floor)
What is the Pelvic Floor?
The pelvic floor is used for support, to assist in excretion of waste, support the uterus in childbirth, and assists with sexual function.
The pelvic floor muscles are below your internal organs, and support the bladder, small intestine, rectum, and bladder. They are levator muscles, meaning that they raise a body part, in this case, the levator ani is the collective name for the pelvic cavity muscles that form around the vagina and anal canal, and can be easily found when stopping the flow of urine.
Urinary Incontinence is an involuntary leakage of urine, caused by pregnancy, vaginal delivery, aging, menopause, or several other reasons. For many forms of urinary incontinence, a strong pelvic floor can reduce or prevent incontinence.
What are Kegel Exercises?
According to the Mayo Clinic, Kegel exercises are used to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles.
Kegel exercises are important for people who:
- leak urine while coughing, sneezing, or laughing (stress urinary incontinence)
- have a sudden, strong urge to urinate before urinating a large amount
- leak stool (fecal incontinence)
- want to improve sexual function*
- want to improve weak pelvic floor muscles because of childbirth, surgery, pregnancy, aging, being overweight, or excessive straining from coughing or constipation.
Improve Sexual Function
Kegel Exercises have been showed to improve sexual function in both men and women. Women have noticed that:
- The ability to reach Orgasm is improved with Kegels
- Blood Circulation to the Vagina is improved by Kegels
- Sex feels better with Kegel Exercises
- Sexual confidence is boosted
How to do Kegel Exercises?
Kegels muscles are the ones that stop urine in mid-stream. Once you identify those muscles, imagine that you are sitting on a tissue, and you grab it with your pelvic muscles and lift it up. Do this exercise three sets of 10-15 every day.
1 year of Kegel exercises in 28-minutes? That is Emsella!
If you were to do 3 sets of 10 every day, and the Mayo Clinic acknowledges that this will improve urine leakage within a few weeks or months, imagine if you could do 1 year worth of Kegel Exercises in one 28-minute session of EMSELLA.
Who are good candidates for Emsella?
Millions of people suffer from various intensities of urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence is defined as the involuntary leakage of urine, which is usually the result of weak pelvic floor muscles. The pelvic floor muscles controls continence.
However, anyone who wants a stronger pelvic floor, wants the benefits of having a stronger pelvic floor, or wants to maintain or augment their pelvic floor strength are good candidates for Emsella. Just like exercising other muscles, exercising the pelvic floor means better health benefits and an improved and more confidence in sexual intimacy.
Why does pregnancy affect urinary incontinence?
Mothers say that having a baby means that you leak pee when you laugh, or jump, or do all sorts of normal activities. Why is this? Childbirth is extremely tough on the female body. The weight of the expanding uterus can weaken the pelvic floor muscles, resulting in a lower and less contracted pelvic floor, which results in urinary incontinence after childbirth. Emsella helps re-train, re-strengthen, those pelvic muscles back to a more normal feeling.
Oh, and as a side benefit of improving urine leakage, you may have better sex…not a bad side benefit!
What are Emsella Treatment like?
Emsella treatments are simple, and, well, enjoyable. You remain fully dressed, and you simply position yourself on the center of the treatment chair, knees shoulder width apart. The provider will work with you during the first minute of therapy to find the best position for maximum contractions. The procedure is comfortable, some say pleasurable and tingling, and lasts 28 minutes. This non-invasive procure means you may immediately resume daily activities after treatment.
Before treatments, weak pelvic floor muscles insufficiently support the pelvic organs and affect bladder control.
During treatment, the Emsella machine stimulates the pelvic floor muscles as the result of thousands of muscle contractions, contractions that are much greater than we can voluntarily perform ourselves.
After treatment, the stimulation leads to regained control over pelvic floor muscles and bladder, and, as a nice side effect, sexual function and pleasure have been reported to be increased.
Many patients love the treatment because it is relaxing, pleasurable, and most importantly, easy because they do not have to undress or have anything inserted into their important areas.
What are the Emsella treatment results?
Best results are after six treatment sessions scheduled twice a week for three weeks. However, patients have reported improvements with incontinence and sexual function after one treatment.
Patients have reported a significant pad reduction for those who wear pads to combat urinary incontinence. In fact, five clinical studies that have been published concerning EMSELLA have shown a:
- 75% DECREASE in pads used for incontinence
- 95% increase in the Quality of Life
When People ask:
- “Can you have better sex in Knoxville just by sitting on the Emsella chair?”
- “Can you have improved urinary incontinence in Knoxville just by sitting on the Emsella chair?”
The answer to both questions is YES!
How many treatments are recommended?
For typical patients, six 28-minute Emsella treatments are recommended in a three-week span, and then maintenance treatments as directed by the provider or requested by the patient. Many patients are so encouraged by the results that they fit the Emsella in as part of their total body health routine.
Less than 3 hours of treatments can change your quality of life, in fact, w the Emsella may actually change your life.
Did you know Emsella can save your sex life?
First, with incontinence, people may feel less sexy. Emsella can reduce incontinence, resulting in more confidence in that area.
Second, training and making the pelvic floor muscles strong improve confidence, and can improve orgasms, resulting in the higher probability of having and enjoying sexual activity.
Third, blood circulation in the pelvic area is improved with Emsella, which could mean more moisture for women and less problems with erectile dysfunction for men.
Better Sex in Knoxville? Better Marriages in Knoxville?
Married couples who have hit a slow spot in their sexual intimacy have found that incorporating Emsella into their healthy lifestyle have re-invigorated their marriage and their sex life. You’re welcome in advance!
Can Emsella save your life?
Emsella can improve your overall quality of life. However, keeping fit and enjoying exercise is known to improve the quality and length of one’s life. Stress urinary incontinence can keep many women from exercising and athletic activity! This means that our overall health and longevity can be dependent on our incontinence, so treatments that can improve incontinence may actually improve overall health! If you are one of those people who do not exercise because of stress urinary incontinence, then possibly, Emsella can be the catalyst for exercise, and that exercise can help you live longer with a better quality of life!
Does Emsella work for Men?
Can men in Knoxville and East Tennessee find effective treatment for urinary incontinence and better sexual function? Yes! Emsella is for men as well.
In fact, Emsella can be hugely beneficial for men.
First, men suffer from stress urinary incontinence as well, they may feel a sudden urgent need to urinate followed by accidental leakage, or this leakage can be brought on by quick movements or pressure.
As noted above, Emsella is a great treatment therapy to help improve the quality of life and reduce stress urinary incontinence by increasing your pelvic floor strength, roughly equivalent to a year’s worth of daily Kegel exercises per 28-minute treatment session.
However, did you know that sustaining blood flow to the penis and maintaining erections is a key component of the pelvic floor muscles? Exercising those week pelvic floor muscles can benefit people with erectile dysfunction (ED).
What about premature ejaculation (PE)? According to WebMD, strengthening the muscles that support the genital area (pelvic floor) can assist with ED and can address issues that cause premature ejaculation.
Men – we work out our muscles at the gym, and that is normal. We have many more muscles besides the pecs and biceps that can add to our quality of life and sexual satisfaction.
One more note to our men, with Emsculpt Neo we can help you gain muscle tone, strength, and improve looks to your abdomen, flanks, buttocks, arms, and legs. In fact, both our men and women clients love an option called “Core to Floor” which means using the Emsulpt Neo and Emsella technologies to treat their abdomen and pelvic floor. This combination has added value to men’s sexual confidence and quality of life.
Men can also benefit from other quality of life improving procedures (men’s services) at Beautique Medical Anti-Aging, and other services such as Emface, Botox Cosmetic, Jeuveau, Fillers, CoolSculpting Elite, skin rejuvenation, and sexual wellness.
One patient (female, no stress urinary incontinence, no previous childbirths) in our clinic who had one previous EMSELLA treatment told us, “After one treatment my husband told me after intimacy, I made his toes curl!”
Female: “Getting on Emsella and having that experience for me was wonderful because it’s the first step in trying to make my life easier.”
Female: “I sneeze, I can jump rope, I run…I can just do all kinds of exercise and competitions and I can now do them with a lot more confidence than I could before. It’s…freeing, very freeing to be able to just do what you want to do again.”
Male: “I like that I can keep my clothes on, there are no pharmaceuticals. I am really glad that something like this exists, because frankly with that problem that I have, I got a solution – The Emsella!”
Male, 40s: “Emsculpt Neo toned my abs and lifted my butt, Emface improved my jawline and made me look younger, and now I can’t wait to get on Emsella to improve my sex life and prevent any pelvic floor related aging issues such as incontinence or having to pee all night.”
