The FAQ's

  • What does PEMF stand for?
    Pulsed Electromagnetic Field
  • How does PEMF therapy work?
    PEMF therapy works by delivering pulsed electromagnetic fields to the body, which penetrate the cells and tissues. These electromagnetic pulses activate biochemical and physiological responses at the cellular level, promoting increased blood flow, enhanced oxygenation, and improved cellular communication. This, in turn, supports the body's natural healing mechanisms.
  • Is PEMF therapy safe?
    Yes, PEMF therapy is generally considered safe when used properly. It is non-invasive and does not involve the use of drugs or chemicals. However, it's essential to follow the guidelines and recommendations provided by a qualified healthcare professional or PEMF professional to ensure safe and effective treatment.
  • How long does a PEMF therapy session last?
    50 Minutes
  • How many PEMF therapy sessions are needed to see results?
    The number of sessions needed to achieve results can vary depending on the your condition and goals. You may experience improvements after just a 2-3 sessions, while others might require several weeks of consistent treatment. Typically, 12-24 sessions are needed to get improvements due to the length of time of many chronic conditions. Your PEMF professional can give you a better idea of what to expect based on your unique circumstances.
  • Are there any side effects of PEMF therapy?
    PEMF therapy is generally well-tolerated, and side effects are rare. However, some individuals may experience mild discomfort, temporary fatigue, or minor skin sensitivity at the treatment site. If you have any concerns, it's essential to discuss them with your PEMF professional before starting treatment.
  • Can PEMF therapy be used with other treatments?
    Yes, PEMF therapy can be used alongside other treatments and therapies, including medications, physical therapy, and chiropractic care. It is often used as a complementary approach to support and enhance traditional medical treatments.
  • Who can benefit from PEMF therapy?
    PEMF therapy can be beneficial for people of all ages and fitness levels. It is commonly used by athletes for recovery and performance enhancement, individuals with chronic pain or inflammatory conditions, those seeking stress reduction and relaxation, and anyone interested in promoting overall well-being.
  • Are there any contraindications?
    The following list are contraindications for PEMF therapy, please DO NOT use if: ● You have an implanted electronic device including but not limited: pacemaker defibrillator cochlear hearing device spinal stimulator glucose monitor insulin pump ● You are pregnant or breastfeeding ● You are actively bleeding or hemorrhaging (including menses) ● You have recieved an organ transplant ● You have injuries or concerns of injuries that have not yet been evaluated by a licensed healthcare provider.
  • Is it safe to use PEMF with a metal transplant (ex. hip or knee replacement)?
    Yes. This is safe to do and is one of the most common reasons people come to seek our help. Metal implants may be more sensitive to electromagnetic stimulations so inform your PEMF professional if you have them. They can lower the intensity of the PEMF to make it more comfortable.
  • This sounds like a TENS unit, so what is the difference?
    PEMF Therapy: Uses: Pulsed electromagnetic fields Goal: Influences cellular behavior and supporting various physiological responses, such as improved blood flow, enhanced oxygenation, and increased cellular repair May Help: Broad range of conditions, including chronic pain, inflammation, bone fractures, joint issues, stress reduction, improved sleep, and general wellness enhancement. TENS Uses: Low-voltage electrical currents Goal: Disrupt pain signals to the brain and stimulate the release of endorphins, which are the body's natural painkillers. May Help: Pain management, muscle strains, arthritis, neuropathy, and post-operative recovery Both are great technologies, but the key differences between PEMF and TENS lie in their mechanisms of action and targeted uses. PEMF therapy focuses on stimulating cellular energy and promoting natural healing processes, while TENS primarily targets pain management by disrupting pain signals and inducing pain relief.
