The pelvic floor can impact many aspects of overall health, not least of which is sexual wellness. Understanding and maintaining the strength and function of the pelvic floor is one way to achieve a balanced and healthy sexual life.
At The Wellness Clinic at New Boston Village in Fall River, MA, we recognize the importance of this often-overlooked aspect of health. That’s why we offer EMSELLA®, a treatment focused on enhancing pelvic floor strength. EMSELLA’s approach aids in improving various aspects of sexual wellness, offering our patients a path to reclaiming their pelvic health in a comfortable and non-invasive way.
Understanding Your Pelvic Floor
The pelvic floor is a group of muscles located at the pelvis’s base. These muscles support the bladder, bowel, and uterus, and are also connected to sexual function. A well-functioning pelvic floor helps maintain continence and enhance sexual sensation and satisfaction. These muscles and ligaments can become weak as a result of pregnancy and childbirth, chronic coughing, and aging.
Common Pelvic Floor Concerns
When the pelvic floor becomes weak, it can impact your quality of life. One of the most common issues is urinary incontinence where there is involuntary leakage of urine when the bladder is too full or during activities like coughing, sneezing, or exercise. Severe weakness can also lead to pelvic organ prolapse. Organs such as the bladder, uterus, or rectum can descend, causing pain and problems with sexual function. Many people with a weak pelvic floor can also experience back pain and reduced stability since the muscles aren’t adequately supporting the body anymore.
How Does Your Pelvic Floor Contribute to Sexual Wellness?
A strong and healthy pelvic floor is integral to sexual wellness. For women, it can contribute to both vaginal tightness and clitoral erection. It can also improve blood flow to the genital area for improved arousal and lubrication. For men, the pelvic floor muscles are involved in erectile function and ejaculation, so strengthening them can lead to stronger and more sustained erections.
How Can You Improve Your Pelvic Floor?
Improving your pelvic floor can be achieved through various methods such as targeted exercises like Kegels, lifestyle changes, and physical therapy. These strategies focus on strengthening the pelvic muscles, enhancing control, and improving endurance. If you need a more advanced approach, we offer EMSELLA to give your body the help it needs.
What Is EMSELLA?
EMSELLA is a sexual wellness treatment designed to rejuvenate the pelvic floor muscles. This non-invasive therapy uses electromagnetic energy to induce deep pelvic floor muscle contractions, akin to an intensified Kegel exercise. EMSELLA’s approach is tailored to bolster pelvic muscle strength, enhancing sexual function and addressing incontinence issues.
The Treatment Process for EMSELLA
The process of EMSELLA for pelvic floor strengthening is both non-invasive and straightforward. Patients sit comfortably on the EMSELLA chair, fully clothed, while the device targets the pelvic floor muscles with focused electromagnetic waves. This induces thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions per session, effectively strengthening these muscles without any downtime or discomfort.
The Benefits of EMSELLA for Sexual Wellness
Enhanced Muscle Tone and Strength
EMSELLA effectively enhances sexual wellness by improving the tone and strength of pelvic floor muscles in just a few sessions. This strengthening can happen much faster and more efficiently than through exercises at home.
Improved Sexual Sensation
This sexual health solution can improve sexual sensation in both men and women. By strengthening the pelvic floor, it increases sensitivity and responsiveness, which can give you a heightened sense of pleasure during intimate moments.
Greater Orgasmic Potential
For those seeking an uplift in their sexual wellness, EMSELLA offers an increase in orgasmic potential. Strengthened pelvic muscles contribute to more intense and satisfying orgasms, enhancing the overall sexual experience.
Reduced Pain During Intercourse
EMSELLA can provide sexual enhancement by reducing discomfort during intercourse. Strong pelvic muscles can alleviate pain, making sexual experiences more enjoyable and less stressful.
Increased Blood Flow
As a sexual wellness treatment, EMSELLA also promotes increased blood flow to the pelvic region. This enhanced circulation supports overall sexual function, contributing to improved arousal and responsiveness.
A Few FAQs About EMSELLA
How Long Does an EMSELLA Treatment Session Last?
Each EMSELLA treatment session is brief but effective, lasting only around 30 minutes. During this time, you will experience intense pelvic floor muscle stimulation as the device stimulates more than 11,000 pelvic floor muscle contractions.
How Many EMSELLA Treatments Will I Need?
For optimal sexual wellness, the recommended number of EMSELLA treatments typically ranges from six to eight sessions. These sessions are usually scheduled twice a week, allowing for gradual and sustainable improvement in pelvic floor strength. However, you should notice some improvement after just one session.
Do EMSELLA Treatments Hurt?
EMSELLA treatments are pain-free, enhancing your sexual health and wellness without the discomfort. Patients might experience a sensation of pelvic floor muscle contractions and a tingling sensation, but these are generally not painful and are indicative of the treatment’s effectiveness.
When Can I Resume Normal Activities After EMSELLA?
With EMSELLA, you don’t have to worry about downtime. Your muscles feel a little tired and sore, but you can return to your day right away. We may have recommendations for activities to avoid while your body recovers.
Am I a Good Candidate for EMSELLA?
Almost anyone could be a good candidate for EMSELLA since it is gentle and non-invasive. However, you should always be communicative with your doctor about your medical history, past treatments, and current concerns so that we can make sure the treatment is right for you.
