A pulsed electromagnetic field device is a wellness tool that emits electromagnetic waves to stimulate cells and support the body’s natural recovery processes. The device is used as part of PEMF therapy, which is the practice of using electromagnetic waves to address common symptoms of damaged or dysfunctional cells, such as inflammation, fatigue and pain.
For whole-body PEMF, a pulsed electromagnetic field device is commonly designed as a soft mat that emits pulsed electromagnetic fields as you lie down on it. The mat is controlled by an attached electronic device that typically allows you to change the frequencies of the electromagnetic waves to accommodate your specific needs.
A pulsed electromagnetic field device can also be designed as a smaller applicator, used to target specific areas of the body, rather than treating the whole body at once.
How does a pulsed electromagnetic field device work?
A pulsed electromagnetic field device works by sending bursts of electromagnetic waves through your body. As you lie down on a PEMF mat, an attached computer transmits the waves through the mat and into your body. The electromagnetic fields treat your body at the cellular level, effectively stimulating and exercising your cells.
The process of PEMF therapy is often referred to as “recharging” your cells, restoring the energy they lack in order to function properly.
Why use a pulsed electromagnetic field device?
Dysfunctional and damaged cells can cause a host of medical issues, including poor circulation, decreased immune function, poor-quality sleep, inflammation, pain and other problems.
A pulsed electromagnetic field device restores those cells, helping them to function properly so they can support the body’s natural healing processes and achieve overall wellness.
With proper cellular function, aided by PEMF therapy, the body can benefit in numerous ways:
- Improved blood circulation
- Detoxification of cells
- Improved immune response
- Reduced inflammation
- Pain relief
- Improved quality of sleep
- Reduced stress and anxiety
What does a pulsed electromagnetic field device feel like?
Using a pulsed electromagnetic field device is a safe, pain-free and noninvasive practice. Unlike invasive medical treatments, PEMF therapy is a relaxed activity that is as simple as lying down on a mat.
Electromagnetic fields are invisible. If you are sensitive, there is a chance you can feel the pulses as they are emitted by the PEMF device, but the sensation is not painful – most people find the sensation to be uniquely soothing. Additionally, most PEMF machines allow you to adjust the frequency and intensity of the pulses to fit your individual needs and preferences.
Where can I get a pulsed electromagnetic field device?
Not every pulsed electromagnetic field device is the same, so it’s important to compare your options carefully. And while there are some medical providers that offer PEMF therapy in-person, most patients find it much easier to purchase their own PEMF device, so they can use it whenever they want in the comfort of their own home.
At iMRS 2000, we offer the industry’s best PEMF mats and accessories, in addition to extensive training materials and beginner’s guides to help you understand how to use your device and maximize the benefits.
