BTL Emsella® Urinary Incontinence Therapy
Tighten and tone your pelvic floor. BTL EMSELLA® is on the North Shore! For the first time, receive this groundbreaking technology at The Coliseum!
Holistic, non-surgical physiotherapy to strengthen your pelvic floor muscle group. Re-establish neural control of the pelvic floor muscles and calm your overactive bladder and urge incontinence. Relax comfortably (and fully clothed) and let our high-intensity electromagnetic technology stimulates deep pelvic floor muscles. The benefits can be compared to an efficient kegel pelvic floor workout.
- Strengthening of the pelvic floor muscle group (hypertrophy and hyperplasia)
- Re-establishing neural control of the pelvic floor muscles, re-educating patients on how to selectively fire these muscles so they can maintain muscle tone.
- Calming effect on overactive bladder and urge incontinence.
BTL Emsella® is the only holistic, non-invasive technology Health Canada approved for the treatment of female & male stress, urge, and mixed incontinence. They also listed two new official "side effects" for men & women: increased blood circulation to treatment area and increased sensitivity during intercourse.
Scientific research has shown that 95% of treated patients reported significant improvement in their quality of life.**
BTL Emsella® is booked as a course of six treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is BTL Emsella®?
BTL Emsella ® uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology to cause deep pelvic floor muscles stimulation and restoration of the neuromuscular control. Key effectiveness is based on focused electromagnetic energy, in-depth penetration and stimulation of the entire pelvic floor area. A single session brings thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, which are extremely important in muscle re-education of incontinent patients.
How does BTL Emsella® work?
The device is a chair containing a very powerful magnet (2.5 Tesla, same strength as MRI machine). The energy is focalized to the depth & location of the pelvic floor muscle group using high intensity focused Electro magnetic energy Emsella depolarizes motor neurons to create 11,800 kegel-like contractions per session. These contractions create hyperplasia and hypertrophy in the muscles, but just as importantly it re-establishes the neural connections for firing the pelvic floor muscle group, re-educating patients on how to selectively contract the pelvic floor muscles. Meanwhile, the magnetic energy also appears to provide therapy to other neurons that may be causing urgency incontinence or overactive bladder.
How does BTL Emsella® compare to electrical stimulation?
Emsella (magnetic stimulation) will only activate motor neurons of a certain diameter, while being blind to all sensory neurons. Electrical stimulation will create pain in sensory neurons, so the overall power that can be emitted in electrical stimulation is severely limited. Because of this unique characteristic of HIFEM energy, extremely high power is able to be used (2.5 Tesla, same strength as MRI machine)High powered and focused magnetic stimulation will penetrate 7-10cm, allowing it to reach the pelvic floor muscle group and contract the full muscle, opposed to a penetration of approximately 1cm with electrical stimulation.
How does Emsella fit into traditional patient care?
A) First course of treatments for patients suffering from incontinence typically involves expensive pharmaceutical drugs or pelvic floor therapy centres.
B) Manual kegel exercises are challenging for several reasons:
1. Most patients are unable to stick to workout programs long term.
2. Many patients are unable to selectively contract the pelvic floor muscle group.
C) Due to high rates of complications with surgery, many people have accepted incontinence as a part of life, as a result they end up living with pads or diapers (average patient spends $1,000 a year).
Emsella targets and strengthens the pelvic floor muscle group, much like kegel exercises, but far stronger. This is different from traditional vaginal lasers. How so? Vaginal lasers add collagen around the urethra to help the pelvic floor grip it more efficiently. Emsella strengthens the entire pelvic floor muscle group - a much more direct treatment for incontinence.
