What is Pulsed Electromagnetic field (PEMF) Therapy?
PEMF is a very gentle and safe therapy to support the overall functioning of the body. Clients use a combination of mat, pillow and probe to address their individual treatment needs under the guidance of trained staff members. Our equipment delivers a prescribed cell-specific range of PEMF intensities best able to support the cells of the body to enjoy an enhanced flow of nutrients in and waste out, thus improving their ability to function efficiently, leading to a reduction of signs and symptoms.
We need PEMF for two reasons:
- Lower levels of naturally occurring PEMF known as the Schuman resonance: Over the past 300 years, the earth’s magnetic field has declined 50%. The average person stays inside 90% of the day, living and working in concrete structures, driving in metal cars, and wear rubber-soled shoes shielding us from traditional regulation by naturally occurring beneficial PEMF. This causes a loss of cell membrane integrity leading to compromised immunity, susceptibility to illness and depression
- We are exposed to high level EMF’s through power lines, computers, cell phones, digital clocks, microwaves, T.V.’s, and hair dryers. High level EMF cause a “sub-molecular electronic disturbance” requiring lower level beneficial PEMF to repair damage to cell membrane ionisation and integrity.
What are its origins?
There is documented historical evidence of the therapeutic use of magnetic fields by Greek and Chinese over 2000 years ago. Einstein showed that electricity and magnetism were part of the same phenomena. Early 1970’s research showed the effectiveness of electromagnetic fields for healing non-union fractures, having a positive effect on soft tissue swelling and pain, and increasing stamina and endurance in racehorses. Today specific frequencies of PEMF are accepted as capable of initiating various beneficial biological processes.
How does it work?
The goal of PEMF is to enhance natural cellular communication processes and to improve the energy production capability of the cells creating internal cell stability and enhancing cellular repair (Dr Pawluk- https://www.drpawluk.com/education/).
Lower cell membrane ionisation results in impaired energy production by the cell as a result of reduced oxygenation and nutrient absorption. Lower cell membrane ionisation also impairs waste removal from cells, reducing cell defence and repair mechanisms, allowing inaccurate cell reproduction and suboptimal cell function over time.
Cell specific PEMF builds cell energy through improved oxygenation and optimal alkalinisation of cells, leading to enhanced cell health and function. The optimised cellular functioning result in positive whole body outcomes including; improved circulation, improved heart rhythm regulation, optimal respiratory pathways, enhanced immune and healing cell responses, normalisation of the flow of blood and balanced blood viscosity.
What conditions can it be used to treat?
Cells are the building blocks of life and their optimal functioning positively influences the levels of health in our bodies. The improvement of cellular metabolism and waste removal dramatically enhances whole body functioning thus reducing the effect of many ailments. PEMF is also a unique complementary therapy because it enhances the ability of the body to receive and use many other physical and pharmaceutical/nutritional therapies. Conditions that show improvement include:
- Non-union fractures
- Pain- acute, chronic and neuropathic
- Chronic fatigue
- Ligament injuries
- Wound healing
- Immune support
