PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. Devices that use PEMF technology emit electromagnetic waves in order to stimulate and encourage your body’s natural recovery process.
PEMF technology can benefit your body when other electromagnetic fields – like those produced by microwaves and x-ray machines – are harmful. Frequency and duration make all the difference. The waves created by PEMF devices occur in brief bursts and are very low-frequency, like the electromagnetic waves found in nature. In fact, most waves involved in PEMF treatments have a lower frequency than you would be exposed to during a thunderstorm.
Your whole body, including skin, bones, and organs, is composed of cells. The membranes of healthy cells have positive and negative magnetic charges. These charges are required to exchange ions carrying chemical elements your body needs to function, like calcium and potassium. Over time your cells deteriorate or get injured, and when that happens they lose their magnetic charges – and with them, the ability to exchange ions. Symptoms like inflammation, fatigue, and pain are caused by damaged cells with low charges. PEMF technology targets the affected area and restores cells’ healthy electromagnetic charges.
What to Expect at Your Visit
During a PEMF session, you’ll lay comfortably (fully clothed), on a massage table on top of the PEMF mat. Headphones playing meditative music are utilized to help your body get maximum relaxation to aid in the body’s healing. A soothing eye pillow will be placed on you to help you go deeper into a meditative state. A weighted blanket is available for those who want to feel it’s anti anxiety and stress-relieving benefits. The session lasts 30 min.
