EMSELLA Incontinence Treatment

EMSELLA, our new feminine rejuvenation and wellbeing treatment

Andresa is the first clinic in the south of the UK outside London to offer EMSELLA, a medical-grade clinically proven, physiotherapy treatment for pelvic floor rehabilitation. It is a treatment that substantially improves the quality of life for those suffering from serious urinary incontinence.

Urinary incontinence can take two forms:

(1) Stress Incontinence – leaking during exercise or sneezing, for example

(2) Urge Incontinence – can’t hold on when you need to go

These can have a dramatic effect on your quality of life. We can now offer you a solution: the BTL EMSELLA chair uses High Intensity Focused ElectroMagnetic energy (HIFEM) to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles to contract and strengthen so that they support the pelvic organs.

Clients can relax and read during the EMSELLA treatment

The BTL EMSELLA treatment is non-invasive and comfortable, and you remain fully clothed while sitting on the physiotherapy chair throughout. It’s not a gimmick; it’s endorsed by highly regarded gynaecologists worldwide, and it works – the results really are quite staggering in improving quality of life. During each 28-minute session, the muscles of the pelvic floor contract over 11,000 times. Not only that, but the entire pelvic floor musculature is involved, not just the subset that can be exercised with voluntary contractions.

Treatment sessions are approximately 30 minutes long, and the majority of people need a course of six sessions over a period of three weeks. In extreme cases, further sessions are required, but otherwise, a maintenance session every three to twelve months is enough.

What a client had to say about their EMSELLA treatment


I had been experiencing increasing bladder incontinence. It was getting to the stage where I was having to use 2 pads a day. This lack of bladder control impacted in every area of my life. I couldn’t run, walk quickly, sneeze or do anything that could trigger my incontinence. It was getting to the stage where I even leaked when my bladder was empty. However often I changed my pad I was anxious that there might be an odour – and the knowledge that the condition was only getting worse made me very depressed. I had read about the Emsella chair and, to be honest, was sceptical about its results. After all, I had spent a lifetime being promised all sorts by every kind or type of product on the market and not one had lived up to the hype. But I decided to give it a go – last resort and everything – and, hand on heart, after 6 sessions, I was cured. I could not and cannot believe it. To be dry, to be able to get to the loo with no accidents, to be able to walk, to run, to sneeze – all without a vestige of a leak – is a miracle to me. Its unbelievable! You might well be reading this and still be sceptical but please take my word for it – it really works! I hope the above truly reflects my joy at the results I’ve achieved.

How does the Andresa EMSELLA consultation process work?

Urinary incontinence is a progressive medical condition necessitating medical-grade treatment

At Andresa, we take a fully medical approach to treat you. Our experienced practitioners see you first for an in-depth consultation where we can assess you and your current condition, and then we carefully monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan accordingly if necessary, advising on the most suitable maintenance plan for you when you have regained control of your pelvic floor.

The Emsella non-invasive physiotherapy chair is medical-grade, FDA-approved and endorsed by gynaecologists worldwide. It’s a world away from the various online gimmicks available, which is why it is also the type of treatment now recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) as the preferred alternative to surgery.

If you suffer from any degree of urinary incontinence, it is highly probable your condition will deteriorate over time. Why not engage with one of our specialists now to discuss the right treatment plan for you? Our initial consultation is completely free with no-obligation!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the EMSELLA Treatment

Want to know more about the EMSELLA treatment? Click on the “+” symbol below to reveal the answer:

Does EMSELLA work for everybody?

BTL EMSELLA is designed to treat stress urinary incontinence in women. Stress incontinence is the accidental leakage of urine caused by an increase in intra-abdominal pressure from activities such as exercise, coughing, laughing, or sneezing. There are several cases where we do not advise undergoing EMSELLA treatment including:

      • – If you have any metal surgical implants such as those that may have resulted from a hip replacement or similar procedure
      • – If you are pregnant
      • – If you have a pacemaker
      • – If you use a coil or other IUD

If you have any intimate jewellery we advise that these are removed during treatment.

What does the procedure feel like?

EMSELLA uses electromagnetic stimulation of the pelvic floor muscles. The therapy is approved by the US Federal Drug Administration. A coil in the chair generates pulsed electromagnetic fields that penetrate deep into the pelvic floor muscles inducing stimulation and providing rehabilitation of weak pelvic muscles. Most of our clients say they feel a slight “tingling” during treatment that is not painful.

Each treatment takes about a half hour and is carried out fully clothed. You can comfortably read a book or magazine during your treatment.

How quickly will I see results?

A course of treatments requires six 30 minute sessions spread over a period of 3 weeks. Most of our clients report an improvement after the first 2-3 sessions.

Can I achieve the same results with Kegel exercises?

The EMSELLA chair uses High-Intensity Focused ElectroMagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate powerful deep pelvic floor muscle contractions. During one session in the chair you will experience the equivalent of 11,200 Kegel exercises. It is not possible to exercise with the intensity or coverage that can be achieved using the EMSELLA treatment chair.

Why should I use Andresa for my EMSELLA Treatments?

Andresa uses a holistic approach for all of our treatments. We believe that any procedure should improve the quality of life for our clients. We are very selective when introducing new treatments to make sure they deliver real results.

After a consultation to determine your objectives we will advise which procedures we offer that may help you achieve your goals. Our clinic is beautifully presented and is completely private. You can be assured of the very best care at Andresa.
