PEMF Therapy: The Wonders of Healing Using Energy Waves

What is PEMF therapy?

PEMF stands for “Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy”

PEMF Therapy uses electrical energy to direct a series of magnetic pulses through injured tissue, whereby each magnetic pulse induces a tiny electrical signal that stimulates cellular repair.


The guiding principle behind PEMF is that using safe, natural electromagnetic fields that are complementary to normal bodily functions will produce a wide range of therapeutic effects.

The first thing to understand is that electromagnetic energy is already at work in the human body. This is why we are able to use EKGs and EEGs to record, respectively, heart and brain activity.

Over the past decades, increasing attention has been paid to mitochondria, the energy-producing parts of our cells. The prevalence and strength of our mitochondria provide us with more energy for productive activity and may help us to have a longer life span. For this reason, scientists postulated that charging mitochondria (known as “the powerhouse of the cells”) would have numerous potential benefits, and they were right.

In 2007, several PEMF devices were cleared by the FDA for use in the U.S. for the treatment of conditions including bone healing, wound care, post-operative knee pain and swelling, migraine headaches with aura, and clinical depression.

Though not yet FDA-approved to treat other musculoskeletal conditions at this time, evidence is mounting in numerous studies that PEMF is effective for broader purposes. As a matter of fact, professional athletes have been using this therapy for years to reduce muscle soreness, treat injuries, and improve performance, and NASA has used PEMF to improve cell viability and enhance the function of tissues in outer space. It is difficult to think of two better recommendations for any therapy.

Who Benefits from PEMF?

In today’s world, we live in a very toxic environment. These toxins may have a harmful effect on our body. Many people suffer from the early effects of aging and cell death. The result is chronic health conditions.

PEMF stimulates autophagy, a process of removing sick and dying cells and/or cellular components, as well as electroporation which allows for an increase in the flux of waste products and toxins out of the cell, and beneficial molecules into the cell. Therefore we consider benefits such as these, and many others, PEMF can be viewed as a viable way to support the structure and function of the human body of anyone willing to give it a try!

How long is a PEMF treatment?

Treatments are typically 8 to 24 minutes in length.
