A revolutionary new treatment promises to kick bladder control and leakage problems to the kerb.
If the truth is told, bladder problems are something we’d rather sweep under the carpet than talk about. But the reality is that we need to discuss it because urinary incontinence is a medical condition that affects hundreds of thousands of men and women around the world.
What Causes Urinary Incontinence?
Illness, pregnancy, childbirth, surgery, being overweight, menopause and growing older can all contribute. Heck, even weight-lifting can be a trigger. It’s an issue that serves up moments that, at best, give us pause and, at worst, make us wish the ground would swallow us.
Urinary incontinence causes anxiety, frustration, self-esteem woes and sees many people avoiding places and activities due to fear of leakage. And while it’s restrictive on a personal level, it can also make a dent in our bank accounts with the need for daily incontinence pads.
Research shows 95 percent of people reported significant improvement in their quality of life after a course of Emsella Chair treatments.
Refresh Skin Clinic
Linda Gormly, the owner of Refresh Skin Clinic, is a registered nurse and current aesthetician (appearance medicine professional). Her nursing background means she has an awareness of how much of an issue urinary incontinence is. So when she came across Emsella Chair in Australia she knew that it would change people’s lives. The revolutionary chair treats urinary incontinence non-surgically and non-invasively usinghigh-intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM). “I knew it was special straight away,” says Linda. “When the mesh treatment for urinary incontinence came out all of us in the medical profession thought it would change patients lives but I’ve seen a lot of women have problems with it and I’ve heard some heartbreaking stories.”
The Emsella Chair
During an appointment, you’ll sit in the chair which uses HIFEM waves to contract all deep pelvic floor muscles. “It feels like tapping initially,” explains Linda. “We get you seated in the correct position first, that’s important, and then you’ll feel a tingling sensation which comes in waves for about five minutes before it goes back to the tapping which releases lactic acid. The lactic acid step is key as it ensures there are no muscle aches, discomfort or side effects after treatment. One treatment is equal to 11,000 Kegel exercises.”

The 3 Types of Urinary Incontinence:
Stress Incontinence Often referred to as light bladder leakage, stress incontinence occurs when pressure is put on the bladder resulting in urine leakage by such things as coughing, laughing, sneezing or jumping.
Urge Incontinence An intense or sudden urge to urinate followed by involuntary loss of bladder control. People often need to frequently go to the toilet and must know where the nearest toilet is at all times.
Overflow Incontinence When the bladder does not empty completely and uncontrolled dribbling occurs.
