Pelvic Floor Therapy


Millions of women in the United States experience pelvic floor weakness, yet fewer than half of them actively seek treatment. Numerous factors may deter women from discussing concerns related to urinary incontinence and intimate dissatisfaction with their healthcare providers. Some of the common reasons for avoiding consultations about pelvic floor dysfunction include fear, uncertainty, embarrassment, and concerns about the associated costs.

EmSella offers a non-surgical solution to address each of these concerns!

Three major types of incontinence EmSella improves:

  1. (Stress Urinary Incontinence) during coughing, laughing, jumping, or sneezing.

  2. (Urgent Incontinence) when you just have to go immediately.

  3. (Overflow Incontinence) when the bladder gets overfull.



How does EmSella work?
As you sit (fully clothed), the EmSella chair emits a high intensity focused electromagnetic wave inducing deep pelvic floor muscle contractions designed to deliver the equivalent of 11,200 Kegel exercises in 28 minutes.


Does EmSella strengthen the pelvic floor?

The EmSella treatment uses High Intensity Focused Electro Magnetic Energy (HIFEM) to stimulate and strengthen ALL the pelvic floor muscles, not just the subset that can be exercised with voluntary contractions (Kegel exercises).


Who is the ideal candidate for EmSella?

Ideal candidates for EmSella treatment are individuals experiencing urinary incontinence, pelvic floor weakness, or other related concerns.


How long do EmSella results last?

The results of your EmSella procedure should last between 4 to 12 months, depending on the condition being treated.

How much does an EmSella session cost?

The cost of EmSella treatments depends on the needs of each client and the number of procedures necessary to produce the desired results. Our providers discuss the price of treatment plans during the initial consultation.

Is incontinence worse after EmSella?
There is virtually no discomfort after the treatment. Sometimes, people notice their incontinence symptoms might get a bit worse the following two days after treatment, which we describe as normal.


I can’t get through a workout without urinary leakage. Is EmSella an option for me?
You will notice how much more effective your workouts will be once you’ve received treatments. EmSella helps clients achieve optimal contractions of the pelvic muscles, which not only helps stop bladder leakage, but will help create a foundation for superior core strength.

Pregnancy has left me with a weak pelvic floor. Can EmSella help?
Pelvic floor muscles play a crucial role in supporting various pelvic organs, including the bladder, uterus, and rectum. Pregnancy, particularly vaginal childbirth, can place a significant amount of stress on these muscles, leading to weakening and potentially causing issues like urinary incontinence. EmSella aims to improve the strength and tone of these muscles.


Is EmSella good for Men?
Yes, especially those that have incontinence or prostate problems strengthening pelvic floor muscles to support the pelvic organs better. It can even improve ED (Erectile Dysfunction) as well as enhance ejaculation, though these reports have not been evaluated by the FDA. This revolutionary treatment is entirely non-invasive and requires no drugs.


Does EmSella tighten glutes?
It can tighten, tone, and strengthen the large muscle groups of the abdomen and buttocks as well as of smaller body areas, including the upper arms, thighs, and calves—creating more definition and reducing circumference.


Does EmSella fix prolapse?

EmSella offers a modern, safe, and effective approach to treating prolapse. By using high intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM), the device can induce deep pelvic floor muscle contractions that encourage the body to build muscle mass strength.

Does EmSella feel good?

An EmSella treatment simply involves sitting in a chair, fully clothed, for 30 minutes. You may want to bring a book or magazine to read while on the EmSella chair. Some women feel the tensing and relaxing of the pelvic floor muscles during treatment, but this has been described as a very similar sensation to regular Kegel exercises and isn't uncomfortable. Others experience feelings similar to orgasms.


Is BTL EmSella covered by insurance?

EmSella is a non-invasive pelvic floor stimulation therapy that can be used to treat urinary or fecal incontinence. There is no insurance coverage for EmSella sessions. The FDA cleared EmSella on January 22, 2019, so it is a new treatment for urinary incontinence. Because it is still a new procedure, it is not currently covered by all insurance plans. Talk to your doctor if you are interested in seeking treatment for your incontinence to see if EmSella is right for you.


Is EmSella permanent?

EmSella is considered semi-permanent, and optimal effects will last 6-12 months after your sixth session. Treatment effects can be maintained with “boost” sessions every 3-6 months.


What is the success rate of EmSella?

BTL EmSella can sound too good to be true for women suffering with bladder leakages. A non-surgical treatment with a 95% success rate might seem like a gimmick. EmSella is truly a technological blessing, and the results speak for themselves.


How many sessions of EmSella do you need?

For most clients, two treatments are scheduled each week, for three consecutive weeks. There must be 2-3 days between each treatment session. After the initial series of 6 treatments, clients may need enhancement treatments every 1 to 6 months depending on the severity of urinary incontinence and desired results. All clients are given post-treatment protocol to retain the strength they’ve managed to rebuild.


What is the downside to EmSella?

The intended use may be accompanied by various side effects such as muscular pain, temporary muscle spasm, temporary joint or tendon pain, temporary increase of local circulation, increased sensitivity during intercourse, and local erythema or skin redness. However, the odds of that happening are low since 95% of those who choose it experience results. Anyone with a copper IUD or a pacemaker should not have EmSella therapy.


What do I do after I’ve completed all EmSella sessions?
After you complete your 6 sessions, you may require a follow-up procedure at some point. You will be given exercises to perform that will help you retain and build on the strength you have achieved, and with proper execution, our clients have been very happy with their results. We do suggest a maintenance treatment when your symptoms return.

The Healing Place is dedicated to providing information and addressing client questions regarding the EmSella device for treating urinary incontinence.
