PEMF (Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field) Therapy is widely used in conditioning of every day people, athletes, small animals, and race, performance and pleasure horses around the world.
Putting it simply, PEMF is a “Massage for your Cell Membranes.”
PEMF is widely used in Eastern Europe and other parts of Europe, where it has been a standard therapy. While this is a new technology in North America, it is an innovative, emerging technology, with an already extensive research base behind it. The PEMF modality is FDA cleared in the U.S. for nonunion fractures, incontinence, migraine headaches, Novocure for some forms of cancer and more. Three studies are currently underway with the Magnawave PEMF devices for submission to the FDA for final clearance.
Our living cells, and in fact, ALL living cells generate a natural electrical charge created by the movement of ions in and out of the cell membranes. Any challenge to the cell such as injury, toxicity or oxygen/nutrient deficiency alters ion movement and the charge of the cell membrane changes. This altered charge profoundly affects the metabolism of the cell and its ability to absorb oxygen and nutrition and release waste and toxins. This metabolic change ultimately results in loss of energy, pain, inflammation, swelling and ultimately, disease.
The PEMF machine creates a series of safe, gentle magnetic pulses that travel from the main unit through the loop. As the loop is placed on or over the body, the electro-magnetic field pulses ON and OFF and makes a soft clicking sound.
As the magnetic field is pulsed ON, electrons are excited and the cells are expanded and “Exercised”. The electrically charged cell membrane is gently pulled by the pulsating magnetic field and the cell is “Recharged”. When the pulse is OFF, the cells relax. This is profoundly beneficial cellular exercise and cellular rehabilitation.
This cellular “Exercise” helps to increase blood flow to the area and increases the permeability of the cell wall. In doing so, nutrients and oxygen are readily absorbed, and proteins more efficiently metabolized for use within the cell and surrounding tissues. This also means that damaging toxins and cellular waste can exit the cell more efficiently through the lymphatic (detox) system, reducing pain and inflammation and improving the overall healing capabilities.
PEMF Therapy optimizes cell function and enhances the bodies natural ability to heal itself.
As cells recharge themselves, they heal and return to optimal health.
