Electromagnetic Pelvic Floor Muscle Treatment
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Therapy
Electromagnetic pelvic floor muscle treatment with High intensity electromagnetic technology (HIEMT) is a breakthrough therapy for urinary incontinence, prolapses and pelvic floor dysfunction. Strong pelvic floor muscles can also boost your sex life. This pelvic floor training system is completely non-invasive and just involves sitting on a specially designed seat or chair.
How does it work?
Pelvic floor muscles are the layer of muscles that act like a hammock to support the pelvic organs and they extend across the floor of the pelvis. Strong pelvic floor muscles give you control over your bladder and bowel. Childbirth, the menopause or just the natural aging process can lead to weakened pelvic floor muscles. This can mean that your internal organs are not sufficiently supported thus leading to stress incontinence, general urinary incontinence and prolapse of the vagina.
This treatment utilizes focused electromagnetic energy to deliver supramaximal contractions to the pelvic floor area. It delivers the equivalent of more than 15,000 kegal exercises (pelvic floor exercises) in a single session – far more than you could ever do yourself. These contractions strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. A half hour session is the equivalent of approximately 150 hours worth of exercises!
What is a supramaximal contraction?
A supramaximal contraction is a muscle contraction that enables 100% of the muscle to be exercised 100% of the time.
Does it really work for urinary incontinence and prolapses?
Yes, it has been thoroughly clinically tested for safety and efficacy through seven clinical studies and in excess of 35 science publications, although it should be noted that individual results vary.
Is it just for women?
Absolutely not. Benefits seen in men of a stronger pelvic floor include better erections and stronger orgasms.
What is the protocol for this therapy?
For the pelvic floor, the protocol is six 30 minute treatments spaced over three weeks at the rate of 2 per week.
When will I see the final results?
This varies, but it’s generally about 2 weeks to 2 months after the last treatment.
Will I need maintenance treatments?
If you feel they are needed, you can have a top up treatment every 3, 6 or 12 months as required.
I was already noticing a difference after just 3 treatments. I’d got so bad I was limiting what I was drinking when I was out, now I’m so much better it’s unbelievable
I was always worried about exercising and running about, I’m so much better now.

What is Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is defined as the involuntary leakage of urine. The three main types are:
- Stress incontinence is when there is sudden, often unexpected pressure on the bladder causing urine leakage. Typical causes include laughing, coughing, sneezing or intensive exercise (eg star jumps).
- Urge incontinence, which is a sudden, intense urge to urinate and happens frequently.
- Mixed incontinence is, as the name suggests, a combination of both stress and urge incontinence.
What causes urinary incontinence?
Weak pelvic floor muscles can cause urinary incontinence as pelvic floor muscles play an important role in supporting pelvic organs and controlling continence.
What’s the solution?
High intensity electromagnetic therapy is a great option for men and women of all ages who are looking for a solution to the problem rather than just managing it , to improve their quality of life.
Studies show over 90% of people get good results, although it should be noted that results vary.
