EMS Chair pelvic floor therapy could change your life

The pelvic floor plays a crucial role in our overall well-being, affecting bladder control, sexual health, and quality of life.

Millions of individuals throughout the world suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction, which can result in a variety of ailments, including incontinence, sexual dysfunction, and pelvic discomfort. While there are several therapies readily available, the most of them are intrusive, time consuming, and frequently useless. Until, a revolutionary new treatment came and changed the game for pelvic floor therapy.

The EMS chair is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that stimulates the pelvic floor muscles with electromagnetic technology. It functions by applying electromagnetic waves at a high frequency to the pelvic floor muscles, which causes them to contract and relax. Research shows that incontinence, sexual dysfunction, and pelvic discomfort symptoms can be relieved by strengthening and optimising the local muscles.

In this blog post, we’ll explore the revolutionary, non-invasive treatment that could transform your life and discover how it works, its benefits, and what you can expect from this cutting-edge therapy.

What is an EMS chair and how does it work?

The EMS chair is a groundbreaking therapy designed to address pelvic floor dysfunction and related sexual health issues. It combines scientific principles with state-of-the-art technology to deliver impressive results.

The treatment emerged from the desire to provide effective and non-invasive solutions for pelvic floor issues. Its creation reflects a commitment to addressing the unique challenges faced by individuals dealing with pelvic floor dysfunction.

The EMS chair primarily targets three key issues:

Urinary incontinence

A common problem associated with pelvic floor dysfunction, urinary incontinence leads to involuntary urine leakage during activities like sneezing, laughing, or exercise. The EMS chair offers hope to those struggling with stress, urge, or mixed incontinence by providing a non-invasive solution to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles.

Pelvic organ prolapse

When pelvic organs (such as the bladder, uterus, or rectum) drop or descend into the vaginal canal due to weakened pelvic floor muscles, it results in pelvic organ prolapse. The EMS chair's targeted therapy helps restore pelvic muscle strength and alleviates symptoms associated with organ prolapse.

Sexual dysfunction

Beyond addressing physical symptoms, the treatment can also contribute to improved sexual health. Pelvic floor dysfunction can lead to decreased sexual satisfaction, painful intercourse, or difficulty achieving orgasm. By strengthening the pelvic floor, users can enhance their sexual experiences and intimacy.

Muscle stimulation

The EMS chair employs a unique approach rooted in science, utilising High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM®) technology. Here’s how it works:

The EMS chair’s HIFEM technology delivers focused electromagnetic energy to the pelvic floor muscles. This energy induces supra-maximal contractions, far more intense than those achievable through voluntary muscle contractions. Imagine performing the most intense Kegel exercises, but without conscious effort.

In general, this innovative technology provides a non-invasive, effective solution for pelvic floor issues, empowering individuals to regain control and confidence. 

How long do results last?

After a typical treatment plan of six sessions (scheduled twice a week), you’ll likely observe improvements. The EMS chair’s effects can continue to enhance over the next few weeks. The therapy is virtually pain-free, allowing you to resume daily activities immediately after each session.

Following your final treatment session, it's common to experience a notable enhancement in bladder control symptoms lasting from one to six months. To optimise and prolong these results, incorporating daily Kegel exercises is strongly advised.

The EMS chair functions by inducing your pelvic floor muscles to contract over ten thousand times during each session, effectively strengthening them. However, akin to any muscle in the body, regular usage is essential to prevent atrophy. Therefore, maintaining a consistent regimen of Kegel exercises can help sustain the benefits attained from the treatment over an extended period.

How often do you need to use the EMS chair?

Maintenance is essential for lasting results. While the initial treatment plan consists of six sessions, follow-up treatments every 6 to 12 months help maintain the benefits. Depending on the degree of weakness in your pelvic floor muscles, additional sessions may be necessary for significant improvement.

Who is a candidate for the treatment?

A good candidate for the treatment is typically a healthy adult aiming to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles, often women post-pregnancy or during menopause experiencing stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Additionally, individuals with stress, urge, or mixed urinary incontinence due to factors like chronic constipation, obesity, chronic coughing, regular heavy lifting, or high-impact exercise may benefit from this treatment.

However, the EMS chair may not be suitable for everyone concerned about incontinence, particularly those with metal devices in their body, as it operates through HIFEM (high-intensity focused electromagnetic) technology similar to an MRI magnet.

Individuals with devices like copper IUDs, pacemakers, or implants such as plates and screws or replaced hip joints are typically considered poor candidates for this treatment.

Are there side effects?

The EMS chair is known for its exceptional safety and minimal discomfort, with patients typically experiencing sensations of tingling and pelvic floor muscle contractions during the procedure. Side effects in the treated area are generally mild and temporary, such as muscular pain, temporary muscle spasms, temporary joint or tendon pain, and local erythema (skin redness).

Is the procedure painful?

The EMS chair is a game-changer precisely because it defies the notion of painful treatments. Patients who experience the treatment describe it as an intense pelvic floor workout—a sensation akin to a gentle “tingling.” Unlike invasive procedures, there’s no need for anaesthesia, no risk of burns, and no downtime.

Simply sit on the specially designed EMS chair, fully clothed, and let the electromagnetic waves work their magic. Safety is paramount, and the EMS is backed by clinical research and free from harmful side effects.

Empowering lives, one session at a time

The EMS chair isn’t just about treating incontinence or sexual dysfunction; it’s about reclaiming confidence, spontaneity, and joy. Imagine laughing without worry, dancing freely, and feeling comfortable during intimate moments. It delivers rapid results—what would take months of manual exercises happens in under 30 minutes.

It’s a revolution in pelvic floor therapy, backed by science and embraced by those seeking a better quality of life. So, whether you’re a woman who’s experienced childbirth, a man dealing with incontinence, or anyone seeking pelvic wellness, the EMS chair awaits. Sit, strengthen, and transform your world!
