Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy, better known as PEMF, is used to assist in helping a variety of conditions that you may experience. Here at Full Circle Health Network, we offer 30 minute sessions of PEMF Therapy. In order to truly understand the benefits of PEMF Therapy, let’s unpack it.
What is PEMF?
PEMF is a non-invasive and drug-free therapy that compliments other therapies and, together with a combination of regular exercise and a healthy diet, can aid acceleration of the healing process.
To apply PEMF Therapy, an electrical current is run through a copper coil which produces a magnetic field. This has been incorporated into various types of devices, with a full body therapy mat being the most effective and oft-used device. One either lays on the mat or places the applicator in the region that needs to be treated. PEMFs will enter through the body targeting the muscle tissue, cells, and even bones.
Here at Full Circle Health Network, we offer the full body mat as well as a localized PEMF band which targets specific areas of concern. For example, if you are experiencing neck pain, the band will sit on the back of your neck as you relax on the full body mat snuggled under one of our Hush Blankets.
What Can PEMF Help Treat?
Since the cellular reaction takes place in every body, magnetic fields are not condition specific. As a result, PEMF Therapy can be used to assist with the majority of conditions. In fact, clinical studies have demonstrated that PEMF Therapy is capable of:
- Increasing circulation
- Decreasing inflammation
- Accelerating bone healing
- Enhancing muscle function
- Reducing the effects of stress
- Improving blood oxygenation, and much more
PEMF & Pain
If individuals are living with constant pain, they would likely have already tried different forms of therapy; if unsuccessful they may have taken certain painkillers to conceal the pain and organize their daily routine around their pain.
This cycle is followed for such a long time that resistance builds up in the body. Long-term pain medication can also lead to other consequences such as internal bleeding and stomach problems. PEMF Therapy can accelerate the healing process, reducing pain and allowing individuals to move more freely.
PEMF & Sleep Management
PEMF Therapy is not only useful for deep relaxation but also help with falling asleep and sustaining sleep throughout the night.
PEMF Therapy relaxes both the mind and the body and facilitates the release of two hormones called Melatonin and Human Growth Hormone (HGH), which are crucial for longevity and deep sleep, thus improving people’s sleep.
Through theta-delta frequencies, the brain is induced with the traditionally known frequencies for deep relaxation and sleep. Melatonin is one of the most vital hormones for anti-aging and sleep.
Deep sleep is promoted by PEMF Therapy, thereby recharging the body and providing people with an increasing amount of energy during the day. Sleep issues should be tackled to ensure a good quality night’s sleep, because sleep revitalizes and heals the body. So, it is important to get plenty of sleep.
PEMF & Mental Wellness: Focus
The programs in PEMF Therapy promote an alpha state, wherein the mind is awakened but relaxed, and set to learn and simultaneously retain much more without continuous reviewing.
Beta brain waves are induced by another program, where the ability for data processing, problem solving, and multitasking is increased, allowing individuals to prevent distraction, have focused control, and be highly productive.
PEMF & Mental Wellness: Stress
Studies have demonstrated that when PEMF Therapy is regularly used, it changes the body’s stress responses by directly acting on major related components, such as the endocrine and nervous systems, along with the cells or organs of the body.
In addition, PEMFs can make the body less reactive to extended episodes of stress. Transcranial PEMF was approved by the FDA in 2011 for treating severe, drug-resistant depression.
PEMF & Injury, Recovery & Healing
When PEMF therapy is performed regularly, it allows muscles to work harder for a longer period of time and recover more rapidly. PEMF therapy triggers the process of energy production in muscles and also increases the cellular energy by as much as 500%.
In addition, PEMF therapy provides a gentle way to trigger the production of heat stress proteins prior to exercise. These proteins not only prevent the breakdown and wear and tear of cells, but also encourage accelerated healing from injury.
Studies show that with PEMF therapy, the uptake of oxygen into muscle increases by at least 1%, which is sufficient to considerably improve endurance and performance. PEMF therapy also stimulates blood vessel growth, which increases circulation further aiding tissues to receive their required nutrition, while expelling their generated waste.
For the casual exerciser, this means less pain and tenderness the day after activity. For the competitive athlete, this means reduced recovery time between training and more effective training. For everyone, it means building a healthier environment within the body, which is less likely to become susceptible to injury.
