What is PEMF Therapy and How Does It Work
PEMF therapy, or pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, is a revolutionary therapy system that not only gets rid of pain deep inside your body but can also take your health and wellness to new heights. This advanced therapy has helped thousands of people ease their discomfort. Whether you have minor body aches or debilitating arthritis, PEMF is something you should consider.
So, what is PEMF therapy? It basically works by sending electromagnetic waves through your body to heal and rejuvenate your cells. This strengthens your body naturally and safely. When you use PEMF, you will be able to notice improvements in your physical and mental states.
Here at HealthyLine, we are the only health and wellness brand that combines PEMF and hot gemstone therapy to give you a powerful therapy that enhances your wellbeing. But to fully understand how this all works, we first should understand how this interesting, yet uncommon form of therapy was first developed.
So, let’s get down to business!
History of PEMF and magnetic therapy
How did PEMF first get developed? Well, before we get into all that, let’s discuss the history of magnetic therapy in general.
Magnetic therapy is a method of easing discomfort. This therapy dates back almost 2,000 years to the ancient Greeks. They would use what was called “lodestones” to eliminate aches and pains within the body. These stones are naturally magnetic and were simply placed on the body. Since then, however, modern science has determined that this treatment actually does nothing to your body. Regardless, the concept of using magnetic stones for health benefits was the first stepping stone for PEMF.
Starting in the mid-1800s, electricity was first being implemented in numerous technological inventions. One of these was electric therapy which was used to stimulate and treat muscles in the body. This is basically referred to today as electromagnetic therapy. Nikola Tesla even studied pulsed electrotherapy and mentioned its potential before many other scientists understood its powers.
PEMF therapy as we know it today was really first developed in the ‘60s and was, and still is to an extent, a new and unknown form of therapy. These devices were rather complex at first and are a little different nowadays. Since then, the FDA has approved PEMF treatment for a variety of conditions such as nonunion fractures and brain cancer—for brain cancer, it’s a specific portable device that uses low-intensity electrical fields. PEMF is also commonly used to help improve people’s overall health and wellness.
Why You Want PEMF Therapy
A common question among those considering PEMF as a treatment usually is “why would I want to have magnetic waves go into my body?” or “aren’t PEMF and magnetic waves dangerous?” Both of these are great questions!
PEMF and its magnetic fields are not dangerous. What is dangerous, however, are EMF waves that are released by practically every kind of electronic device—cell phones, Bluetooth devices, WIFI routers, powerlines, and so much more. These can throw off the natural magnetic frequency of our body. Put simply, PEMF works to reset your body’s charge and rebalance your electromagnetic energy. Furthermore, HealthyLine PEMF mats are all completely free of EMF waves that can sometimes be released from heated wiring in therapy mats if they aren’t protected.
What is PEMF Therapy
Ok, we’ve been talking about PEMF’s history and why you need it, so I’ll get to the point and finally answer the question “what is PEMF therapy?”
PEMF therapy sends electromagnetic currents through your body by generating them in a set of coils. These coils are electrically charged and, when they are activated, release these waves. Pretty simple, right? Not at all, really. But we’ll leave all of the technical stuff to the scientists!
All that you need to know is that PEMF waves can have certain frequencies, intensities, pulses, and waveforms (among other things). These different parameters have different effects on your body. HealthyLine uses a PEMF frequency of 7.83 Hz which is the natural magnetic frequency of the earth. This may seem like a small detail, but this allows your body to return to its natural and optimum state.
How It All Works
So, what happens when PEMF passes through your body? When our body is exposed to PEMF, it heals our body at a cellular level.
Each of our cells throughout our body has a membrane. The membrane is like an “outer shell” that allows molecules to pass in and out of the cell. It also has an electromagnetic charge that determines how permeable the membrane is. When our membrane’s charge is weakened, it doesn’t allow as many molecules and nutrients to pass through the cell. It also slows down the process of removing waste to keep the cell clean.
When our cells are exposed to PEMF, the electromagnetic charge of the membrane becomes balanced, making the membrane more permeable. This allows the necessary amount of nutrients to enter the cell and cleanses it of toxins. PEMF therapy also improves circulation through our blood vessels and heart.
Because cells make up the entire human body, when they are healthier, so is the rest of our body.
What Benefits You’ll Receive
The effects that PEMF has on our cells can give our bodies so many health and wellness benefits from a physical level to a mental one. These can include:
- Pain reduction
- Bone regeneration
- Arthritis and stiffness relief
- Improved focus and energy
- Relief from depression and anxiety
PEMF therapy improves circulation throughout your entire body. This allows more blood, including white blood cells, to reach areas of pain and reduce tension. And when your circulation is enhanced, more toxins are also able to be flushed from your body to keep you in tip-top shape. Because it can help relieve your body’s discomfort, it is a great tool to use if you suffer from minor aches or chronic pain. It is also used to help regenerate muscles after working out or exercising.
Arthritis and Stiffness Relief
PEMF is known to be an effective tool to fight back against arthritis. It can even be used to release general stiffness in your body. These symptoms can affect just about anybody, regardless if they’re young or old. Just like it does with pain relief, the enhancement of your circulatory system lets more blood reach your joints to aid in the reduction of swelling or inflammation that can be preventing your joints from functioning properly.
There has been research that indicates the effectiveness of PEMF in the treatment of bone fractures and regeneration following either an injury or surgery. Although PEMF is known to help treat a wide variety of conditions, its effects on our bones have been the most studied by the scientific and medical community. It can also be effective at helping treat tears in the rotator cuff as well. This is because PEMF targets bone cells and can help them grow and improve at a faster rate than bones not exposed to PEMF.
Improved Focus and Energy
When you use PEMF therapy, you are more likely to be in a better mood, feel more energized, and notice improvements in your ability to focus. This is a result of enhancements to your blood flow, allowing your body to absorb more nutrients and oxygen. You will also be able to cope with stress in a more effective way and for longer periods of time.
Relief from Depression and Anxiety
The FDA has approved PEMF therapy as a treatment for symptoms of depression. These treatment sessions usually involve placing the PEMF device against the head to send pulsed waves into the brain to stimulate brain activity, causing blood flow to be enhanced and energized. This makes PEMF a solid alternative for those who cannot take medication or haven’t seen any improvements in their symptoms from medication.
So, after taking in all of this information, I hope you have an answer to your question: “What is PEMF therapy?” Even though a lot of this information hasn’t been medically or scientifically proven, there are so many reasons why you should at least try this incredible form of therapy.
