FAQ

How does Orchard Clinic’s therapy work?

Our unique Orchard Clinic method combines advanced technology with physical conditioning to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles for long-lasting results.

Our technology uses HIFEM® (high frequency focused electromagnetic technology) and functional physical exercises to build greater muscle memory and lengthen the effect of machine therapy.

Your consultant will advise the right workout for you, using mat-based exercises, breathing techniques and weights according to each individual.

Why do I have to combine physical conditioning with machine therapy?

Machine treatment alone, or physical therapy alone, will not achieve effective and long-lasting results. Combining both machine and physical conditioning will significantly increase the successful intervention and the return of a patient to their highest level of function.

Physical conditioning helps to build greater awareness of the pelvic floor muscles and muscle memory. With machine treatment, the body and brain strengthens the re-education of the muscles muscles through supramaximal contractions – contractions that are bigger than what any individual could do on his or her own.

Why can’t I just perform Kegel exercises at home?

Kegel exercises are great when done daily and correctly with the right amount of intensity. When instructed to do the Kegel exercise, patients are often not able to properly contract the pelvic floor muscles correctly and find it difficult to build the routine to do Kegels at least 3x per day. Hundreds of Kegel exercise repetitions are needed on a consistent basis in order to see effective results.

Our method forces 11,200 pelvic floor muscle contractions with supramaximal contractions – contractions that are bigger than what any individual could do on his or her own.

In fact, Kegels aren’t the only thing you can do to strengthen your pelvic floor. Yoga and pilates techniques promise even better benefits to strengthen and stabilise weak pelvic floor muscles.

How is the treatment done?

Your consultant will prescribe physical conditioning work according to individual plan which typically involves exercise techniques that are focused on strengthening the pelvic floor muscles and core muscles.

During the machine treatment, you simply sit the machine, fully clothed.

How soon can I see results?

Most clients see effective results with 6-8 sessions, however in some cases, clients report effective results in just 2-3 sessions, especially when done over short intervals of 2-3 weeks. Users also report:

  • 100% better awareness of pelvic floor muscles
  • 95% improvement of quality of life
  • 67% reduced hygienic pads
  • 40% are confident that they are able to properly contract their pelvic floor muscles after treatment
  • Greater sexual satisfaction
Are there any side effects?

No. The Orchard Clinic method is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that is done while you are completely clothed with no downtime.

Some patients may feel slight muscle soreness similar to the side effect of muscle stress after exercise. However, the machine is programmed to release lactic acid during the session which helps to prevent muscle soreness. 

Is it safe?

Yes. The Orchard Clinic method uses the only FDA approved non-invasive device to correct urinary incontinence and physical exercises that are customised to each individual.

What should I expect during my visit at Orchard Clinic?

As a new patient, you will receive a thorough evaluation and one-on-one discussion with your consultant. Your initial visit should take about 60 to 90 minutes for the admissions and evaluation process. Follow-up visits are typically 30 to 60 minutes in length depending on your customized treatment plan. All treatments take place in a private room with a female consultant trained specifically in this field.
