Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field Therapy – PEMF

When the cells of the body have been injured, by toxin overload or even cancer, they may lose their ability to generate proper energy levels to maintain their health. When this occurs they will swell and heal slowly or not at all. The result may be chronic swelling, or chronic pain(inflammation) or poor bone healing.

We use pulsed electromagnetic field therapy to help the body recover from this by giving it the frequencies  needed for  healing. Chronic painful conditions can improve and soreness diminishes.

It is a supportive therapy that accompany and programs aiming at detoxification, pain relief, cell rejuvenation, cancer,  chronic fatigue and many more.

Pain is a message from our body. The tissue cries out for energy flow, in the form of magnetic fields. The reason that Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field (PEMF) therapy works so effectively is because it supports the metabolism and increases the blood flow throughout the whole body. Red blood cells pass through capillaries supplying oxygen to the surrounding tissues. Blood flow is increased through the pulsating electromagnetic field. The exchange of oxygen is extremely fast in the basic tissues. Here the oxygen partial pressure rises by 400 – 800% therefore all cells breath and function better and better.

Magnetic field therapy works in the cell and supports the functioning of inner regulation mechanisms while enhancing the self-healing capacity. The action of magnetic field therapy may be summarized in three main effects:

1) In creased blood circulation

Thermo-graphic measuring charts show the increase of circulation under a magnetic field. This leads to a better nutrition and rejuvenation of cells

2) Improved oxygen supply

The PEMF ensures increased oxygen extraction (de-oxygenation) and enriches the tissue with oxygen.

3) Enhanced metabolism 

PEMF enhances both anabolism and catabolism.

Pulsed Elecromagnetic Therapy FAQ’s:

Q. What is Pulsed Electro Magnetic Frequency Therapy (PEMF)?

A. PEMF is a therapeutic technology/device which is a fast and easy to use system for pain management and the recovery from sports injuries, lower back pain, muscle aches and pains, headaches, nervous tension and stress, improved immune system high blood pressure and degenerative conditions related to aging. (See the health benefits sections in the Q&A farther down the page for a more comprehensive list of general benefits.)

Q. What does PEMF therapy do?

A. The PEMF therapeutic device delivers a series of pulsating magnetic frequencies into the client, which creates a penetrating energy that will dynamically interact with cellular metabolism in order to produce a wide range of healing benefits. Those healing benefits to the body are increased ATP production, normalization of cellular membrane potentials, increased oxygenation of  tissues and improved removal of toxins from the cells.

Q. What is a PEMF session like?

A. A PEMF session will essentially feel relaxing. All you do is lie on a massage table or bed which has a PEMF system on it. No action or physical activity is required.

Most people (and animals) simply go to a restful, meditative state or fall asleep. Afterwards they arise from the therapeutic experience feeling rested, peaceful and energized…minus some aches and pains.

Q. What should I experience during a PEMF session?

A. Since everyone is unique and has different physical problems or conditions, each will experience something different.  There are numerous types of therapeutic and intensity settings on the device, allowing the individual to increase or decrease the effects. Thus a person can experience many different sensations.

Frequently, people will state that they feel a tingling in an area of an old injury, while others say they feel a sense of wellness and relaxation. Check it out for yourself and see what you experience.

Q. Who can use PEMF therapy?

A. Everyone can use PEMF therapy from the very young to the elderly, from sedentary individuals to those that exercise daily. Essentially, anyone at any age group, any level of wellness or fitness including both humans and animals (of all species) , can use this technology.

All can and will benefit from PEMF treatments while experiencing no negative side effects.

Q. How often can I use PEMF therapy?

A. PEMF treatment is a safe, easy to use and effective treatment with no negative side effects. Using PEMF according to suggested schedule just 8 minutes, two times per day offers long lasting, significant relief not only throughout the day but throughout the weeks and months, as it mobilizes the body’s healing resources.

Q. Are there any contraindications to using PEMF therapy?

A. Yes, there are contraindications for PEMF therapy.  Specifically, there are 3 contraindications for using this technology, individuals with  1) pacemakers 2) pregnancy  3) epileptics.

Q. What are the general health benefits of PEMF therapy?

A. The following is a list of the general health benefits from using PEMF therapy:

  • Improved re-generations speeds recovery from physical exertion, strenuous activities and workouts, etc.;
  • Balances the body’s acupuncture meridians in just a few minutes;
  • Strengthens the immune system – gentle magnetic intensity does not over-stimulate the body;
  • Improved wound healing – post-operative wound healing, better scar healing, from  injuries, etc;
  • Positive effects on pain reduction resulting from various causes – arthritis, back pain, bursitis, muscle stress, etc;
  • Normalizes action of the cellular electrical voltage potentials for healthier  metabolism.

The following is a long list of health benefits from using PEMF therapy organized in specific body systems:

CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM

A. Strengthens the cardiovascular system.

B. Improves blood circulation and micro-circulation – reduces blood platelet adhesion (stickiness).

C. Positive influence on secondary disorders, such as migraine, tinnitus.

D. Prevents Thrombosis (blood clots) – patients using blood thinners must consult with physician before using PEMF therapy.

E. Regulates high and low blood pressure – stimulates natural release of Nitric Oxide to relax and expand blood vessels.

F. Improves blood vessels: improves the cholesterol level, increases the oxygen partial pressure.

RESPIRATORY TRACT

A. Increases oxygen uptake and reduces respiratory problems and asthma attacks.

SKELETAL SYSTEM

A. Enhances the healing of muscle injuries from strains, sprains, tendonitis, bursitis;

B. Osteoporosis – measurable increases in bone density (20 to 30 percent) after only six months of daily use;

C. Arthritis – reduces pain and inflammation, improves circulation and oxygenation.

MUSCLES & TISSUE HEALING

A. Enhances the healing of muscle injuries from strains, sprains, tendonitis, bursitis;

B. Positive effects on Fibromyalgia – not a cure but relieves symptoms with continued use;

C. Speeds post – operative healing of tissues, scars, etc.

METABOLISM AND HORMONE SYSTEM

A. Improves metabolism functions;

B. Stimulates ATP production to provide more energy for the cells;

C. Moves waste products and toxins out of the cells;

D. Provides positive effects in: elderly diabetic, rheumatic disorders, allergies, menopausal complaints.

NERVOUS SYSTEM

A. Reduces stress;

B. Positive effects in: Nervousness, Burnout syndrome, Sleeping disorders.
