Europe's Leading Men's Health Shockwave Clinic
Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT®)
Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT®) is a non-invasive treatment that has been specially developed for treating musculoskeletal (MSK) pain and other disorders.
This cutting-edge advanced treatment is now available at our clinic. We either use it alone or in conjunction with our Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) equipment. Already we have found that EMTT combined with Shockwave Therapy is a ‘game changer’ for many people struggling with chronic conditions.
While we regularly use EMTT in our clinic to treat conditions in conjunction with physiotherapy, we are also using it to treat our Erectile Dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease patients.
Damaged Cells Recover Faster With EMTT Treatment
The equipment we use is the Magnetolith EMTT, it is the only CE approved electromagnetic therapy for the treatment of MSK diseases of the muscle, bone, joints, nerves, tendons, and tissues.
The Magnetolith EMTT is capable of generating a wide range of frequencies at varying levels of power and this allows us to set precise adjustments most suitable for your treatment.
What Happens During EMTT Treatment?
Treatment is usually fast and comfortable and depending on the treatment being undertaken lasts approximately twenty to thirty minutes.
The loop of the EMMT applicator is placed directly above or around the part of the body being treated, direct skin contact is not necessary.
Treatment is usually repeated up to eight times over a number of weeks depending on your condition and the advice of our specialists.
A study done by Zablotskii et al (2016)* discusses how various mechanical stimuli exerted on cells induce changes in plasma membrane tension, eliciting Piezo channel opening. The resulting cation influx can trigger sensory neuron firing or activation of intracellular calcium signalling pathways such as adenosine triphosphate/nitric oxide (ATP/NO) release by endothelial cells.
This indicates beneficial effects for Erectile Dysfunction sufferers.

Frequently Asked Question's About EMTT Treatment
This technology was CE approved in March 2020 and we are one of a handful of UK Clinics able to offer this treatment.
The CE approval mark means that the manufacturer takes responsibility for the compliance of a product with all applicable European health, safety, performance, and environmental requirements. CE stands for “Conformité Européenne”.
Researchers have shown its effectiveness in speeding up healing of tendons, nerves, bone, and other problems and treatment can be further enhanced when combined with shockwave therapy.
The effectiveness of EMTT has been successfully proven in several clinical studies.
EMMT therapy is very safe and painless, well-tolerated, effective and with no negative side effects. It can be integrated with other therapies for the treatment of difficult to manage diseases and injuries.
The therapy is usually delivered in a course of treatments over a number of weeks. The number of sessions required will be discussed with you at the outset of the treatment, though this can change depending on how well you respond to the overall therapy.
Electromagnetic fields were used by the Soviet Union to treat cosmonauts after spending extended periods of time in space and as a result suffered from a loss of muscle and bone density due to the lack of gravity and exercise.
To treat this, medical specialists used Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy to supplement pharmaceutical methods to regenerate bone density and combat bone loss. The success of this treatment led to the spread of PEMF therapy not just in the Soviet Union but throughout Eastern Europe as well.
In the USA, NASA then conducted its own research into the use of PEMF to stop bone loss, muscle atrophy and fatigue for Astronauts during and after space travel. In 2009 they filed for their own patent for the use of PEMF in tissue regeneration.
There is now a huge body of medical literature supporting its use and over 2,000 medical research studies have been published in support of the effectiveness in tissue repair. In the UK NICE NHS have documented its benefits.
In the USA the Food and Drug Administration have cleared It’s use by medical professionals to treat a range of conditions such as depression, non-union fractures, soft tissue pain and regeneration.
EMTT treatment uses those same electromagnetic fields to positively influence tissue to promote healing. But many of the PEMF machines do not have enough power to induce a power beyond the minimum threshold of 10μT and therefore they will not create any biological effects. EMTT works at a range of >100kHz.
The Magnetolith EMTT machine we use is able to achieve 18 oscillations before PEMF has achieved even half of one oscillation and the absolute field strength of EMTT is approximately 40% stronger than PEMF.
