After I had my first child, my daughter, I wanted to be able to get back into a normal routine of life and granted that takes a while, but I wasn’t seeing the results that I had wanted with a more typical physical therapy program. And so the Emsella chair worked out great.
It was not invasive, which was really nice. After having a kid, you just kind of want to take a break in some ways. It was something that I could do for me to make myself feel a little bit more like my old self, take off some of the mental stress and the burden of, you know, am I gonna be able to sneeze? Am I gonna be able to go jogging? To again, just really feel like myself. And so the Emsella Chair was checked a lot of those boxes for me.
Hi, I’m Jillian. I am a working mother of two and wife here in the Woodlands, Texas.
I first heard about Emsella from my dad who’s a physician and from my gynecologist and they both recommended it for seeing really fast results for pelvic floor integrity, for getting back to doing things that I had loved like running or jumping and, you know, playing, doing active events outside. And so they recommended it to me for that reason.
Also because physical therapy appointments, which are a great option, take a lot longer. The appointments are longer. The amount of times you have to see a provider is a lot more typically. And so this is fewer appointments, less time, and ultimately more time that I get to be back with my family.
The plan that I had followed for my Emsella treatments was up to 30 minute appointments, twice a week for about three weeks. And I did that full circuit with my first daughter, my first child. And then after having my second daughter, I only needed three sessions just to regain pelvic floor integrity.
I really loved my experience with it. It is not invasive. It’s just 30 minutes around the corner. You know, you just sit in a chair. Anyone can do that. And it was honestly just a welcome break for those few weeks where I could do something for me that made me feel better and ultimately did make me a better parent as well. I felt that with the treatments, I was able to be more physically active. I was able to be more confident. And I was worrying less about, you know, common things after you have a baby like leaking. And so it took off some mental burdens and mental stress to where I could just focus more on being a mom or doing other things that I enjoyed.
I noticed improvements at the third session. And so the first two sessions, I could tell that there was strengthening, but I wouldn’t say I had clearly noticed anything until that third session when I went out for a jog and I came back without any issues. And so from there, it was a relief. It was great to be able to continue and finish the sessions and have that confidence so early on. A question that I get a lot when I tell people that I’ve used the Mcella chair is questions and concerns around, you know, am I gonna and I tell people all the time that no, that’s not how this chair works. It’s literally you sitting on a chair clothed. And it can feel a little bit like a muscle spasm, like an eye twitch, just on your whatever point is actually touching the chair.
And as easy as that, such a low sensation, kind of such a low exercise type of feeling happens. And then you go about your day, there’s no recovery time. I wouldn’t even say that there’s like soreness at all. It’s just all benefits in after three sessions. So for anyone who’s thinking about trying the Emsella Chair, I would really encourage them to talk with their provider and to try it out. For me, it was a great success. I’m so grateful that it was offered here. And it really cut down my time to being able to do what I love most.
