What is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy?

PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. An electromagnetic field is a magnetic field that is being generated by an electric current and the PEMF induces a mild electromagnetic current that is FDA cleared for use in medical and home use therapy settings. If a cell is damaged the PEMF therapy slows or stops the release of pain and inflammatory mediators. PEMF also increases cellular blood flow and re-establishes normal cell interaction which promotes greater energy and faster tissue healing.

With PEMF you can experience an increase in blood circulation, an improvement in your oxygen supply, and an enhanced metabolism. It is important to say that PEMFs do not cure disease, they simply stimulate the body so that it can heal itself.

The cells of your body maintain stored energy, or voltage, that represents the ability to execute the functions that keep you alive. When cells lose voltage due to environmental stressors, lack of exercise, injury, or inadequate nutrition it creates an environment for the onset of dysfunction that can lead to illness and chronic pain. Drafting on the mid-20th century laboratory work of Harold Saxton Burr at Yale that identified the link between measurable imbalances in the electrical field of an organ and the onset of illness, Dr. Jerry Tennant states in Healing is Voltage that cells, like batteries, are designed to run at -20 to -25 mV. When voltage levels drop cells struggle to function creating an environment for chronic pain and disease. The rapidly changing field of a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) has been observed to induce an electric current in the tissue, producing stimulation of charged particles in support of optimizing the voltage necessary to maintain energy for normal cellular function.

Benefits of PEMF Therapy

Increased Circulation

Deficient blood cells tend to clump together. PEMFs create a charge field that de-clumps the ‘sticky’ blood cells, which allows for greater circulation. PEMFs stimulate chemical in the blood vessel walls that cause a dilation of the blood vessels. This leads to an improved blood flow and an increase in the amount of oxygen and nutrition that can be delivered to the cells and discharging the cellular waste matter. PEMFs enhance blood oxygenation.

Enhanced Muscle Function

PEMF’s decrease tension and pain which leads to a greater abundance of Myosin Phosphorylation (MP). MP is the process that allows muscles to work harder, longer, and to recover quickly.

Decreased Inflammation

PEMFs reduce chronic inflammation. Inflammation is a process that is triggered by the body to repair cellular damage by increasing circulation to the affected areas, while also increasing healing inflammatory cells. However, when this process becomes prolonged due to chronic stressors, chronic inflammation becomes the norm and chronic pain and disease soon ensue.

Decrease in Stress

Stress is the cause of 65% of our illnesses. Magnetic fields have been demonstrated to decrease stress. PEMF’s with a sensory deprivation session can be quite rejuvenating and refreshing.

Bone Repair

PEMF’s can help the bones heal from trauma, surgery and disease. Bone regeneration can be beneficial to those with osteoporosis and osteopenia.
