Tighten your pelvic floor with EMS Medisculp PelviQ
Just a few months ago Cryojuvenate launched the EMS Medisculp service which has literally taken Sevenoaks by storm. We couldn’t just stop there, oh no …..we have now taken this cutting-edge service one step further and proudly announce the launch of the EMS Medisculp PelviQ Paddle. This is a breakthrough therapy for incontinence, a revolutionary technology for women’s private health.
A quick recap, so what is EMS Medisculp?
Its full name is High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Fitness or FEMHO for short. It is a device that stimulates 100% of the muscle by means of electromagnetic pulses (in comparison, a push-up or sit-up in fitness uses only 40% of the muscle). Additionally, up to 19% of the surrounding fat is burned. You have read this right: the effect of exercise, without exercising. During the brief treatment, muscles contract in response to the electromagnetic stimulation, producing the same result as doing 20,000 kegel exercises (crunches or squats).
This treatment is quite honestly marvelous, it will stimulate and tighten your muscles in a few painless and non-invasive treatments.
See what we have achieved so far?
Results are impressive, we have recorded inch losses of up to 3.5” after just four 30 minute sessions.
Client 1: This client took a course of four treatments over a period of 2 weeks (treatment every 3 days). 1″ (2.5cm) loss around the abdomen. Two paddles were used during each treatment.
The treatment ranged between 55% to 85%, increased incrementally.
Client 2: Over 3.5inch circumference loss, again after a course of 4treatments. this client was also using whole-body cryotherapy on a regular basis in conjunction with taking the treatment.
“If you want your abs to be toned and tighter and already work on them, then this is the last machine you will need. I exercise daily and EMS Medisculp has given me that extra toned abdomen I have been looking for. “The EMS Medisculp procedure experience was painless, effortless and EASY”
Introducing the EMS PelviQ Paddle
We can all relate to that day we laughed so hard we ‘peed’ our pants? Do you ever experience leaking a few drops of urine whilst sneezing, laughing or coughing? Or have a strong, sudden urge to urinate just before losing a large amount of urine?
These are exactly the types of scenarios that a course of EMS Medisculp PelvicQ can assist with. Why? because taking care of your pelvic area is important for preventing problems such as ‘Urinary Incontinence.
What is the EMS PelviQ Paddle?
The PelviQ paddle is a seat that effectively stimulates pelvic floor muscles and connects directly to the EMS Medisculp machine. This stimulation leads to regained control over pelvic floor muscles and bladder. The pelvic floor supports pelvic organs is part of the system that manages urination. Weakness and lack of control in these muscles is often significant factor leading to incontinence.
In the same way that we use the EMS Machine on other parts of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, and buttocks, the ‘EMS PelviQ Paddle’ sends electromagnetic waves through the pelvic floor causing muscle contractions which ultimately strengthens them. You will also be given the option to place a second paddle on the abdomen simultaneously. Using this approach will aid in tightening the muscles from 2 perspectives in a painless, non-invasive way.
What happens during your treatment
Once sitting comfortably on the PelviQ paddle (slightly leaning forwards and feet flat on the ground) the program will be initiated and the electromagnetic pulses will stimulate your muscles from there for a period of 30 minutes. The session induces thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, which are extremely important in muscle re-education of incontinent patients.
A standard program is a 2-week cycle (6 treatments) but would be adjusted according to the severity of the problem and needs. You can also top up by taking additional sessions on a regular basis.
- Before: Pelvic floor muscles insufficiently support pelvic organs and affect bladder control.
- During: PelviQ effectively stimulates pelvic floor muscles
- After: Stimulation leads to regained control over pelvic floor muscles and bladder

Tighten your pelvic floor with EMS, results
This graph demonstrates the results of therapy using functional magnetic stimulation after 16 treatment sessions. The results were collected in three independent centres with 160 female patients.
What alternative treatments are available?
Of course, we are biased to say that EMS Medisculp may well be the best thing since sliced bread, but I wouldn’t be giving you the whole picture without providing some information about the alternative solutions already used to overcome these types of issues.
Pelvic Floor Exercises (Kegal exercises): Everybody has heard of the Pelvic floor exercise, but did you know what a Kegal Exercise is? Basically, these are the exercises most of us associate with the pelvic floor, especially after childbirth. The Kegal exercise is a type of exercise we use to strengthen the pelvic floor by repeatedly clenching our bottoms (contracting and relaxing the muscles that surround the opening of the urethra, vagina, and rectum).
The result is to improve the muscle strength and function (in women holding up the bladder preventing USI and in men these muscles are responsible for the urinary continence, fecal incontinence, and ejaculation) which may help to hold urine in the bladder longer. Although it must be said these exercises must be performed many times a day (for several minutes) to begin to have an effect.
Pessary: Pessaries come in many shapes and sizes and help to reposition the urethra to reduce SUI. It is a removable device that is inserted into your vagina and provides support to vaginal tissues displaced by pelvic organ prolapse and to support the bladder neck. Your doctor can fit you for a pessary and help you decide which type would best suit your needs. There are many devices like this on the market that also assist with pro-lapse.
Transurethral Bulking Agents: collagen injections around the urethra make the space around the urethra thicker thus helping to control urine leakage. This is a minimally invasive procedure, the effects may not be permanent.
Behavioural modification: these are things we can do ourselves such as avoiding the activities that trigger episodes of leaking such as restricting fluids, limiting caffeine, training your bladder, pelvic floor exercises.
What factors can weaken your pelvic floor
There are many factors that can weaken your pelvic floor muscles. There are five main factors that can harm your pelvic floor:
- Excessive impact
- Excess weight on the organs found within the pelvic area sphere
- Injury/damage to the muscles and/or tissues
- Overstretching a nerve or ligament
- Bad posture
So there you have it! This un-invasive treatment is now readily available to book online and in-house.
