What is PEMF (Pulse Electro-Magnetic) Therapy?
PEMF therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free therapy that works at the cellular level and compliments other modalities and therapies. It has been in use for over 100 years.
It introduces a low frequency pulsed electro-magnetic field to recharge the cells in your body. Cells are energized and stabilized to maintain and/or re-establish their original oscillations.
By increasing the effective surface area of each cell PEMF increases circulation, oxygenation and hydration.
PEMF also improves absorption of nutrients and removal of toxins.
Modern medicine is very good at considering the body from the chemical, structural angle. However, without the electro-magnetic exchanges within our bodies we would not be alive.
Benefits of PEMF (Pulse Electro-Magnetic) Therapy
Aging and body dysfunction begin at the cellular level. Improving the function of the cells can bring many health benefits:
- Increasing circulation and Immune function
- Decreasing inflammation and swelling
- Improving energy levels and general well-being
- Improving recovery times after injury and surgery
- Accelerating bone healing, including the uniting of fractures that do not heal
- Enhancing muscle function and improving range of motion
- Relieving pain, migraines and headaches, both acute and chronic
- Providing relief from diabetic neuropathy
- Reducing the effects of stress, decreasing depression symptoms
- Improving sleep
- Improving blood oxygenation, and much more
What to Expect
It is important to come well hydrated, so drink plenty of water prior to the session, it has been shown to enhance the benefits. You can also drink a glass right before the session.
Treatments last around 30 minutes. There will be 10minutes of treatment, a 7 minute rest then another 10minutes of treatment.
To prevent injury to you, and any damage to these items, you will be asked to remove any metals including jewelry, coins and electronics such as cellphone, watch or Fitbit. In addition, magnetic bank cards will need to be kept at least 50cm away.
You will lie on a comfortable treatment table fully clothed.
Small pads will be placed on your body and connected to the PEMF machine. The location of these pads and the specific frequency used is determined by the health condition for which you are being treated.
A tiny current is then passed between the pads creating the pulsed Electro-magnetic Frequency required. You may feel a slight warmth.
Following the treatment you may be thirsty and need to urinate. This is a sign that the body is detoxing.
How you respond to the treatment is very individual and will depend on many factors including age, diet, lifestyle and current state of your health. There are usually no unpleasant effects following a treatment.
How Often Should I come
Ideally you will come for a series of treatments. These can be anywhere from daily to every couple of weeks.
When you come for your first session you will discuss your current health concerns with your therapist and he will advise you on how many sessions you need and the preferred frequency.
Can anyone have Pulse Electro-Magnetic (PEMF) Therapy?
The only people who should not have PEMF are those who are Pregnant, have a Pace-maker, Defibrillator or Implanted chip, have Seizures or Severe Hypertension.
PEMF is safe for anybody else, whatever their age.
PEMF and Cupping in Combination
These therapies work very well together. The PEMF is used first as described above, followed by a 30minute cupping session. This will take around 75minutes total.
