  • Improves Metabolism
  • Deep detoxification
  • Reduces Swelling & Inflammation
  • Improves Immune System
  • Increases Bone Density & Healing
  • Faster Injury Recovery
  • Improves Absorption of Nutrients
  • Increases Rang of Motion
  • Reduces Stress
  • Improves Sport Performance



Contraindications: Absolute contraindications are implanted electrical devices including pacemakers, cochlear implants,

intrathecal pumps, etc, because the magnetic field can shut the device off, as would happen with an MRI. PEMFs have not been proven safe for pregnant women, though we know that pregnant women often work around MRI machines, and in some circumstances get MRIs themselves. People with overactive adrenal or thyroid glands should use PEMFs with caution, as glands can become overstimulated and fatigued. People with organ transplants on immunosuppression. Conditions with active bleeding, especially into the gut, should be controlled before PEMFs are applied. Patients known to be especially vulnerable to cardiac dysrhythmias should exercise caution when using high-intensity PEMFs near the heart.

What is PEMF Therapy?: PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy) therapy is FDA approved to promote healing on non-healing bone unions. Ligaments, bone, and cartilage respond to PEMF treatments. PEMF passes through the body, including the bones. PEMF can help regenerate bone loss from osteoporosis and osteopenia. Improves Muscle Function. Properly charges cells in our muscles to work harder and longer. Muscles contract and relax and recover better from tension and spasms with PEMF. This therapy gives the cells in the body greater levels of energy. This gives them the potential to fight infections effectively. PEMF increases the oxygen available to each cell. This helps accelerate recovery time. Helps Repair Bones.

What can I expect from a PEMF Therapy Session?: A PEMF treatment will last between 30-60 minutes depending on the individual circumstances. It requires only lying down or seated fully clothed on a PEMF body mat. Most people feel absolutely nothing, sometimes there is a slight tingling or warmth due to the increased circulation from the therapy.

How will I feel after a PEMF Therapy session?: Your post-PEMF Therapy experience is very individual and depends on the severity of your condition, overall health, lifestyle and other variables. Generally people report as feeling:

  • Less pain
  • Greater range of motion in joints
  • Enhanced flexibility
  • Increased energy
  • Increased sense of well-being
  • Enhanced motor coordination
  • Improved sleep





Quick Facts About the our PEMF

Health FAQ

What is a PEMF session like? 

All that is required of the patient is to simply lie on a mat or sit with a device placed on the treatment site. Since no physical activity is involved for the patient, most folks feel relaxed during the process.

Will I feel any pain during the treatment?

NO. The magnetic-pulses can be adjusted to you individually so they do not hurt. However, you will feel the pulsing of the magnetic current during treatment.

Who can use PEMF?

Anyone from the very young to the elderly can use PEMF safely and without negative side effects. The only contraindications are for those individuals with pacemakers, insulin pumps, or other electrical implants, and pregnancy.

Do I have to undress for the treatment?

NO. All treatments are administered with you being fully dressed.

How long does a treatment take?

Treatment sessions are about 10 - 60 min.

What is the frequency?

It has a pulse frequency from 1 to 200 pulses per minute.

I have metal implants. Will the PEMF do any harm to me?

Metal implants in general are fine so long as the area is treated with the recommendations of our doctor.

How can I optimize PEMF treatment?

Try drinking lots of water. PEMFs stimulate currents in tissues. These currents simply don’t flow well without hydration. Thus, drinking 8 glasses of water a day is necessary for individuals using PEMFs. Following the doctors nutritional recommendations will also assist as mineral content helps with PEMF.

I use magnets for my wrist and back. How is a pulsed electromagnetic field different than a magnet?

A static magnet is limited to a constant magnetic field whereas pulsed electromagnetic fields involve frequencies thus creating much more profound actions in the body. Pulsed electromagnetic fields are produced when an electrical current passes through a frequency generator. A property of physics is that where there is an electrical current, there is an ensuing magnetic field. The frequencies then ride on the magnetic field, which then pass to the body.

The most important element of pulsed electromagnetic fields is that they are based on specific generated frequencies that resonate with the same cellular frequencies in the body. For example, this resonance affects the red blood cell membrane with release of nitric oxide, NO, among many other actions that cause blood vessel dilatation. This improves circulation of blood and therefore oxygen to tissues.

How much power does your device produce?

Our device provides 2400 to 21000 Gauss (which converts to .24 to 2.1Tesla) Our pulse delivers electromagnetic energy penetrating the cell barrier to provide the body instantly usable energy. This makes dramatic improvement possible in a short period of time. If you have an acute or serious condition it is important you use a commercial device that can deliver the dosage needed. You should be able to feel the pulse in most places treated.

I need evidence. Is there research behind the use of pulsed electromagnetic fields?

Yes, 30 years of solid research. With the introduction and ongoing use of pulsed electromagnetic fields to the body, an induction of electrons creates a natural resonance that the body and its cells recognize and work to maintain. There are over 2000 studies.

What immediate changes should I look for in my body?

Everyone responds differently to PEMFs. Some people feel an increase in energy. Most feel more relaxed muscles, and a definite decrease in their symptoms. Also better breathing and deeper sleep.
