Best PEMF frequencies for various elements
How a PEMF Therapy for Sleep Can Work for You
PEMF therapy can be a great way to fight insomnia and finally get the deep, rejuvenating sleep your body needs. But it’s important to know how to do it properly.
In this post, we uncover everything you need to know about PEMF therapy for sleep, including how to use your PEMF sleep device, choosing the best PEMF frequency for sleep and more.
Here’s what you need to know.
Why PEMF Therapy for Sleep? Because Quality Sleep is Crucial
Before we dig into the benefits of sleep PEMF therapy, it’s important to understand why we need sleep in the first place.
If you suffer from insomnia, sleep deprivation or virtually any other sleep problems, then you know the frustration of those long, restless nights – and the fatigue that plagues you the following day. But a lack of sleep can be far more harmful to your health than you may realize.
As the National Institutes of Health (NIH) explains: “Sleeping is a basic human need, like eating, drinking, and breathing. Like these other needs, sleeping is vital for good health and well-being throughout your lifetime.”
For proper health, adults should receive between 7 to 10 hours of sleep every night. And the quality of that sleep is also important. If you’re tossing throughout the night or waking up multiple times, then your body isn’t getting enough time to reach the deepest stages of sleep.
According to NIH, people with sleep deficiency have a higher risk of several health complications, including:
- Heart disease
- Kidney disease
- High blood pressure
This is where sleep PEMF therapy can be so advantageous, helping people get the restorative sleep their bodies need.
PEMF Therapy for Sleep
When using PEMF therapy for sleep, you are using pulsed electro-magnetic fields to restore and support your body’s natural healing processes at the cellular level. Using a PEMF sleep device helps you get into deeper levels of sleep by stimulating the parts of your brain that manage your body’s natural circadian rhythm.
It’s important to note, however, that not every PEMF mat makes a good PEMF sleep device. High-quality PEMF machines like the iMRS Prime have a circadian rhythm clock feature that adjusts the frequencies according to the time of day. These frequencies guide your body into the slow-wave cellular activity that is needed to achieve the deepest stages of sleep.
If you suffer from insomnia or other sleep interruptions, chances are your body is currently “out of sync” with its natural sleep cycle. A PEMF sleep device helps you get back onto that natural cycle with cellular stimulation and regeneration.
Additionally, keep in mind that a PEMF sleep device still delivers all the other benefits of PEMF too, including pain relief, muscle health, reduced inflammation and improved circulation, just to name a few. These benefits can also help to improve sleep quality.
- For example, PEMF can help to relieve muscle tension that is causing you to toss and turn at night.
- If you wake up feeling stiff and achy in the morning, chances are you have muscle tension that is disrupting your sleep (even if you don’t realize it).
Finally, research has shown that PEMF can also stimulate the brain’s production of melatonin, the “sleep hormone” that regulates our sleep-wake cycles.
When using PEMF therapy for sleep, you benefit from the slow-wave cellular activity that helps you achieve deep, restorative sleep and from the cellular healing that stops your body’s other ailments from disrupting your night. These benefits are reciprocal: by achieving a deeper sleep, you help your body to naturally heal and regenerate even further.
In addition to increasing your energy, a better night’s sleep can also improve memory, alertness, creativity, awareness and productivity.
What's the Best PEMF Frequency for Sleep?
The best PEMF frequency for sleep ranges between 0.5 Hz to 8 Hz. These frequencies mimic the brain frequencies that naturally occur during the sleep cycle: Theta (light sleep) and Delta (deep sleep). A good PEMF sleep device will automatically transition between this frequency range as you lie on the mat.
