PEMF therapy, or Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy, is an ancient method of healing injuries, treating chronic pain and improving body wellness through the use of non-invasive, painless and natural electrotherapeutic techniques. The practice dates back thousands of years, as treatment of various ailments using magnetic stones is found in “The Yellow Emperor’s Book of Internal Medicine,” a medicinal guide written around 2000 B.C. and attributed to famous Chinese emperor Huangdi. Since then, massive advances in the technology and techniques used have been made, and today PEMF is a rapidly-growing field, with thousands of patients discovering it’s healing potential every year.
How Does It Work?
Your entire body is composed of cells- from your muscles and bones to your organs and skin- and each cell membrane is magnetically charged. This magnetic charge enables your cells to work together and exchange the chemicals, like potassium and sodium, necessary for your body to function. Over time, however, cells can become damaged via injury, illness, or simple degradation over time as we age. When these cell membranes can’t exchange ions and chemicals, they can’t effectively transport vital nutrients amongst each other and function in synchronicity, thus becoming less and less resistant to damage and breakdown. That means pain, fatigue, inflammation and countless ailments can arise as the cells decline in their ability to maintain themselves.
So They Need to be Properly Charged… but How?
Think of your cells like tiny batteries. Less charge means less efficiency, and when a battery is low on energy, it can’t perform as it should. What PEMF does, in essence, is recharge the cells with the energy they need by pulsing a safe, therapeutic current through the body to help the cells regenerate and heal. As cells are brought back to their optimal charges, the body is able to use it’s natural healing abilities to repair and maintain itself.
By empowering the body’s natural ability to repair and maintain itself, PEMF not only helps heal injuries and relieve pain but also ensures the these self-regulating biological functions are able to continue to protect the body from injury, illness and damage. Instead of using addictive narcotics, painful surgery and expensive drugs commonly found in modern medicine, PEMF utilize your body’s built-in regenerative capabilities to repair itself- meaning that instead of chasing symptoms and temporarily numbing pain, PEMF helps the body not only recover, but become stronger and more resilient.
Natural, Proven, and Effective.
The benefits of PEMF are obvious, and it is booming in popularity among people who want to treat the root cause of their physical problems and prevent them from happening again, and not just treat the symptoms.
