Emsella Specialist

EMSELLA. A Breakthrough Treatment for Incontinence and Confidence. The EMSELLA’s revolutionary technology provides those suffering from incontinence with a completely non-invasive option.

Do you want to sleep through the night without getting up for numerous bathroom breaks? What about exercising or laughing without leaking? Sounds amazing, right? So how does it work?


Urinary incontinence can happen at any age, but is more common among middle-aged and older women. It can be caused by natural aging, weakened pelvic floor muscles, childbirth, hysterectomy, menopause, obesity, and other factors. Your pelvic floor muscles support your pelvic organs. When your pelvic floor muscles are weakened, your internal organs are not fully supported which causes difficulty controlling the release of urine. The Emsella treatment will strengthen those pelvic floor muscles, giving you back the control of your bladder.

What are the benefits of Emsella Treatment?

Emsella treatment offers so many benefits for women with urinary incontinence. One of the most important benefits is that the treatment doesn’t require any form of surgery. Other benefits of Emsella treatment include:

  • Reduced urinary and fecal incontinence
  • Improved quality of life
  • Improved sexual performance
  • Strengthened pelvic floor muscles

Who are candidates for Emsella Treatment?

Approximately two hundred million people are living with incontinence all over the world. More than twenty-five Americans are suffering from urinary incontinence. Most of these individuals are women with really weak pelvic floor muscles. You are one of them if you experience any of the following:

  • Leakage of urine when you are involved in any form of exercise or sports activities
  • Leakage of urine when you sneeze or cough
  • Abstained from sexual intimacy because you are scared of awkward leaking
  • Urinate frequently

If you experience any of the symptoms mentioned above, we have good news for you. At Embry Women’s Health, we have providers that can improve your quality of life by treating your incontinence with Emsella.

However, you can’t receive Emsella treatment if you are pregnant or have any of the following:
fever, malignant tumor, hemorrhagic condition, metal implants, implanted neurostimulator, heart disorder, pulmonary insufficiency, electronic implant, and cardiac pacemakers.

How does Emsella Treatment work?

Emsella is a unique device that is approved by the FDA for the treatment of urinary incontinence. The device uses High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to restore neuromuscular control by stimulating the muscles on the pelvic floor. An Emsella treatment session can stimulate thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions. These muscle contractions are essential for the restoration of the muscles responsible for incontinence. Studies have proven that ninety-five percent of incontinence patients experience a change in their quality of life after an Emsella treatment procedure.

Emsella treatment session lasts for 30 minutes in the office. A health care provider will recommend a treatment plan that suits you after consultation. The treatment sessions are spread over a few weeks. Our provider at Embry Women’s Health will monitor the treatment procedure and ensure that the treatment is done correctly.

You just need to sit down and relax on a chair without undressing. After sitting on the chair, our provider will start the treatment. You will feel moderate contractions and tingling of the pelvic floor muscles during the treatment. You can experience up to 11,000 Kegel contractions during each 30-minute session.

What happens after Emsella Treatment?

After the treatment, you can go back to your usual daily tasks. It is common to observe changes after the first 30-minute session or after a couple of sessions. Once you start seeing changes, there will be an improvement after every treatment session. Usually, the best results of Emsella treatment are noticed a few weeks after the completion of treatment sessions.

The ladies here at Embry Women’s Health really know how to treat people! I’ve been coming here since I moved to the area four years ago, and I am never disappointed. Nurse Lockwood and Dr. Embry always make time for their patients and make sure to get to the root of any problem you may have. They also have a gorgeous office with everything you could possibly need. The atmosphere is very cozy and calming and does not feel like a doctors office at all. My only suggestion to visitors is to book your appointments ASAP as they go quickly, and I get why! Sometimes when I have come here, I end up waiting a bit as they do tend to give that full attention and care to each patient, so it’s worth the wait. I just wish they could be my nurse/doctor for EVERYTHING 🙁

I have never had such a positive experience at a healthcare facility, not that I’ve had particularly negative ones, but I was pleasantly surprised the time Barbara Lockwood, NP took with me. She is very easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable during my visit. I’m so glad I found this practice!

This was my first visit at this office and it was so much better then a visit I’ve had at a different gynecologist. The ladies were genuinely friendly and helpful and all very knowledgeable. They make you feel comfortable and safe. It’s so hard to find a gynecologist that fits your needs and I’m very happy to say I found mine.

Words from our patients

JoEllen is AMAZING! Not only is she professional- she makes your whole experience comfortable. If you’re looking for a professional that never judges your situation and treats you very well- I would definitely recommend this office!

It is refreshing to meet a practitioner who sees the whole patient and not just a series of symptoms. JoEllen is willing to spend the time to ask questions and really listen to the responses. I have seen JoEllen several times and I have always appreciated how much time she spends with each appointment and her pragmatic approach with solutions.  I feel like my health drives the appointment and not the schedule. Finding JoEllen’s practice was like finding a needle in a haystack, a caring practitioner who encourages patients to listen to their bodies and to be their own best advocate.

Friendly staff. JoEllen is incredibly kind, patient and answers all of my questions whenever I see her. I don’t feel like I am being rushed when I am there, it is very nice.

I went in as a new patient just for an annual exam and Dr. Barbara Lockwood was so professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. She made sure to answer any and every question I had and she made sure I understood everything I needed to know. I have been to some offices in the past where you feel judged but she was so kind and made me feel so comfortable talking to her! I will be moving away soon but I might just have to make the drive back to see her next year!
