EMSELLA is a breakthrough pelvic floor physiotherapy treatment that greatly improves the quality of life for those with serious urinary incontinence.

BTL EMSELLA urinary incontinence treatment

The BTL EMSELLA chair is a revolutionary non-invasive and comfortable physiotherapy treatment for:

  • Men or women suffering from urinary incontinence.
  • Mothers with stress incontinence following childbirth.
  • Women with decreased sexual satisfaction.

Endorsed by highly regarded gynaecologists worldwide the results of the BTL EMSELLA treatment are truly impressive in improving quality of life.


The pelvic floor muscles support the pelvic floor organs and control continence. However, natural body aging, childbirth and menopause can cause this group of muscles to decondition resulting in continence problems such as leaking urine when coughing or sneezing.

The BTL EMSELLA treatment uses High Intensity Focused ElectroMagnetic Energy (HIFEM) to stimulate and strengthen all the pelvic floor muscles, not just the subset that can be exercised with voluntary contractions (Kegel exercises).  These stronger pelvic floor muscles restore continence and the confidence to enjoy normal daily activities without fear of losing bladder control.

During each 28-minute session you sit comfortably on the Emsella chair while it generates thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions.  Each session is equivalent to doing 11000 pelvic floor exercises but without the hard work!

The procedure is non-invasive, and you remain fully clothed throughout. No drugs are required and the most you will feel is a slight tingling during the treatment. With no recovery time needed you can leave immediately after each session and resume normal daily activity.

The majority of people need a course of six sessions over a period of three weeks to see optimum results, with most people seeing and feeling results after just two or three treatment sessions.

Benefits of the BTL EMSELLA treatment

  • Repairs and tightens pelvic floor helping men and women to regain bladder control.
  • Strengthened pelvic floor muscles improve women’s sexual satisfaction and the ability to achieve orgasm.
  • Improvement can be observed after a single session with results improving over the treatment period.
  • Non-invasive procedure with no recovery time.
  • You remain fully clothed throughout treatment.
  • Walk in and walk out the same day.
  • No pain – you can chat or read a book whilst undergoing treatment.

What our patients are saying about the BTL EMSELLA chair

“I had experienced increasing incontinence after radiotherapy for prostate cancer and medication was not helping.  The Emsella chair was an easy and painless way of giving my pelvic muscles a much more effective workout than I could ever do on my own.  I noticed an improvement by the second session, and on completion of the course I definitely felt my muscles were much stronger. I would certainly recommend it”.

Richard from Oxford, patient at The Urology Partnership
