How does it work?

HIFEM technology or High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Therapy uses the principles of magnetic stimulation. A rapidly changing magnetic field generates electrical currents which leads to muscle contraction. If the frequency of stimulation is faster than the time needed for muscle relaxation , the muscle is forced into a sustained contraction which triggers the muscles to increase in muscle mass and strength.


Isn’t this just “Dr Ho’s” or "TENS"?

NO! HIFEM is scientifically proven to:

  1. Induce 2x higher peak torque (muscle contraction) than transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)

  2. Penetrate deeper into tissues than TENS

  3. No pain compared to TENS

  4. No risk of burns compared to TENS



Does it Hurt?

No, the treatment does not hurt or burn. You have a sensation of the muscles contracting but it is not painful.



How Many Sessions Will I Need?

Each patient is a unique individual, your symptoms will be evaluated at your consultation and your personalized treatment protocol will be determined.

The average patient requires 6-8 initial sessions. These sessions are usually completed 2x per week over 3-4 weeks.

The average patient will require 1-2 maintenance sessions every 4-6 months.


Are the Results Permanent?

Just like going to the gym, the results of your workouts are not permanent and muscle strength needs to be maintained. You wouldn’t go to the gym once and expect to see bulging biceps that last forever!

The average patient will require 1-2 maintenance sessions every 4-6 months.


Is the Treatment Covered by OHIP?

Unfortunately, at this time the treatments are not covered by OHIP. OHIP covered treatments include invasive surgeries performed by urologists or urogynecologists in the hospital.


Is the Treatment Covered by Extended Health Benefits?

Maybe! Check with your insurance provider. The doctor can provide you with necessary documentation to submit to your insurance provider.


Is there anyone who can’t use the treatment?

Because the technology uses magnetics it cannot be used by anyone with inserted metal implants such as hip replacement, cardiac pacemaker/defibrillator, copper IUD (hormonal IUD like Mirena is ok)or implanted infusion ports. Pregnant women also cannot use the treatment.
