After giving birth to my daughter (now 5) I noticed that my pelvic floor muscles noticeably slackened which means I had less control. It meant that taking my daughter to do her favourite activity, trampolining, was always a source of anxiety. When I needed the bathroom, I needed it then and there; this wasn’t the case pre-baby. It’s something I’ve lived with for years and it was always something people said you should accept when you’re a mum but I don’t agree. I didn’t want to be a slave to the toilet-dash anymore.
I was introduced to the Emsella Chair at the Dr Rita Rakus’ clinic and I had high hopes. I was relieved to hear it was a non invasive, quick and painless course of treatments which didn’t even require de-robing. I booked in for just six treatments, each lasting less than 30 minutes, two days apart and all I had to do was sit in a comfy chair and read my book! The sessions proved to be quite a welcome break from my busy day.
The chair sends an intense pulse into the knicker-gusset area, in waves, over the course of the treatment and it’s a very manageable though odd sensation. There was no downtime or discomfort during or afterwards.
After each session there was a noticeable improvement with my ability to control my urge to go to the bathroom and by the end of the course I felt like a new woman. If I perform a pelvic floor exercise now i notice the strength I now have. My confidence has gone through the roof and I feel so much freer and positive in my daily activities.
Emsella has positively changed my life! Yes, I now have top-notch bladder control and the freedom to go with it. My enjoyment of life has improved and I’m not at all anxious about the toilet-dash anymore. It simply doesn’t happen! But, don’t forget what else the pelvic floor controls...my sensitivity and enjoyment levels during sex have gone through the roof. Not a bad additional benefit is it?! This treatment is a woman’s best friend, it’s a no-brainer, do it!!!!
