Strengthening the Pelvic Floor on the Kegel Throne

This week’s Tweak of the Week is something rather different. It’s not a face treatment, in fact it’s not a beautifying aesthetic treatment at all, but something important that I really want to share with you.

 

The Emsella chair uses the latest technology to build strength into the pelvic floor, an area that most of us neglect, with dire consequences. One in three women in the UK suffer with stress incontinence — that’s when you leak a bit of urine when you cough, or jump, or laugh. Whether as a result of natural childbirth, or just increasing age and muscle weakness, it is alarmingly common.

 

 

Just sitting on this chair will tighten and tone the pelvic floor muscles that prevent leakage – and the success rate is 95 per cent.
What’s it like to use? What does it feel like? And why is it known as ’the happy chair’? Watch the video and you’ll find out.

ABOUT

Alice Hart-Davis is an award-winning beauty journalist and author. For nearly 20 years she has been reporting on the aesthetic cosmetic procedures colloquially known as tweakments, and has trialled countless procedures in order to review them.

Alice has won many awards for her work, though none for services as a cosmetic guinea pig. She attends aesthetics conferences around the world and spends a lot of time catching up with the doctors, surgeons, dentists, nurses and the companies behind the technology in this fast-expanding field, the better to understand the tweakments on offer.

Over the years Alice has seen — and experienced first-hand — plenty of bad treatments, and understands the many problems that beset the aesthetics industry, from the lack of regulation to the rising incidence of body dysmorphia among cosmetic patients and practitioners.

Despite this, she remains an advocate of good, understated cosmetic work — the sort which goes undetected and unremarked, because it doesn’t lead to weird-looking hamster cheeks or frozen foreheads. She is also still enthusiastic about the potential of tweakments for making people look that bit better, which in turn makes them feel better about themselves and better able to get on with the rest of their lives.

She lives in London, a short bicycle ride from Harley Street, with her husband and a lively Jack Russell terrier. Her three young adult children take a dim view of tweakments, but accept that these are something she does for work (and are too kind to use the word, ‘vanity’).
