PEMF

Some background information Before we begin to discuss what PEMF is and the possible effects this technology can provide, having a general understanding of how the cells function and communicate can be useful. Cells are responsible for several important functions, including nutrient absorption, waste removal and adenosine triphosphate production (ATP). ATP is the energy needed for just about everything within the body. These important cellular functions occur within the cell membrane, where there are channels that open and close allowing nutrients to flow in and waste to flow out. A naturally occurring electric charge is created by ions (a charged atom or molecule) moving in and out of the cell membrane. Maintaining the ideal electric charge within a healthy cell allows for cells to communicate properly. When a cell is damaged, through nutrient or oxygen deficiency, by stress or trauma, the charge within the cell membrane changes resulting in decreased function within the cellular membrane. This causes the movement of ions through the membrane to change causing a decrease in oxygen and nutrient absorption as well as a decrease in the release of waste through the membrane. This can cause disease, inflammation, swelling as well as pain. To restore the optimal cell function, electro-magnetic fields rebalance the charge within the cell membrane so that the channels can open and allow for the cell to function normally.

So what is PEMF? Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy is a non-static therapy which creates a magnetic field that travels through a copper coil located within the loop. PEMF fields cause the charge within the cells to return to a normal state, allowing for the channels within the cellular membrane to open again. This allows normal movement through the membrane. Improving cellular function throughout the body will allow for the entire body to function optimally. Through improved cellular metabolism, results can include accelerated wound healing and bone mending, increased cellular oxygen absorption, regeneration as well as repaired tissue that has been damaged. The PEMF machine can be set to a range of frequencies. Depending on the frequency that the PEMF machine is set to, the soft clicking sound that you will hear will change speeds. The lower the intensity, the faster the “clicking” and the higher the intensity, the slower the “clicking.” The clicking is the electro-magnetic field being activated and deactivated in cycles that occur between thousands of times per second, to one time per second. The frequency of the PEMF machine can be adjusted depending on what areas of the body are being treated to receive the desired results. PEMF therapy is often compared to a “deep tissue massage.”

Benefits of PEMF Therapy can include, but are not limited to:


  • Increased bone density
  • Increased cellular metabolism
  • Increased energy
  • Increased range of motion
  • Increased sense of well-being
  • Increased muscle function including; Strength, Endurance, Stamina, Recovery

  • Increased circulation through dilation of arteries and capillaries
  • Improved blood oxygenation
  • Drug-free pain relief
  • Relief of deep muscle soreness
  • Accelerated wound healing and bone mending
  • Decrease in swelling
  • Decreases toxins
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Decrease in painf
  • Decrease in stress
