One in two women will suffer some level of pelvic floor dysfunction following childbirth. Whether we’re too scared to sneeze, or not enjoying sex as much as we should be, issues with the pelvic floor can cause discomfort in our lives, and until now, have taken a lot of work to try and overcome.
Traditionally those seeking help for pelvic floor issues were encouraged to try regular, gentle exercises which, unless women were prepared to go down the surgical route, was the only option, other than simply living with the symptoms.
New techniques such as the minimally invasive, non-surgical laser procedures for treating and improving vaginal health have offered some success recently, however there’s a new kid on the block and it is even less invasive.
The Emsella chair at Intimate You clinic in Liverpool is a completely non-invasive treatment for the pelvic floor. Patients simply sit on the chair – fully clothed – for six 28 minute sessions. The treatment uses advanced electromagnetic energy to engage all the muscles of the pelvis and produce thousands of pelvic floor muscle contractions simultaneously. The action is similar to Kegel exercises, however, with far more intensity, a single session is equivalent to the intensity of 11,200 pelvic floor exercises.
