What is PEMF Therapy Used for?

PEMF therapy is a non-invasive medical practice that is used to support the body’s natural healing systems at the cellular level. As such, PEMF is used for a wide variety of medical ailments and wellness goals, including pain relief, recovery after injury, increased energy and improved sleep quality, just to name a few.

The benefits of using a PEMF machine are far-ranging. In this post, we highlight some of the most common uses and applications that have been supported by independent medical research.

pain relief


1) PEMF devices are commonly used to relieve pain.

One of the most common ways that PEMF devices are used is to reduce pain, including acute pain from injury and long-term chronic pain. PEMF therapy is increasingly used for pain management, either in supplementation or as an alternative to traditional treatments, such as prescription painkillers, surgery and physical therapy.


2) Healing and recovery are common uses for PEMF therapy.

PEMF therapy is commonly used by athletes, seniors and other patients to bolster their body’s healing systems. This is especially useful after athletic activity or injury, helping the body to recover and heal faster. A PEMF mat stimulates and repairs cells, which helps the body’s natural healing systems work better.


3) PEMF is used to fight inflammation, particularly by seniors and arthritis sufferers. 

Numerous studies have shown that PEMF can be very effective at reducing inflammation. This makes PEMF therapy especially beneficial for those suffering from inflammation, including seniors with arthritis (including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis). It is also used by patients experiencing inflammation after surgery, as well as those with a higher risk of other ailments, such as heart disease due to their inflammation.


Depression and Anxiety


4) PEMF is used to combat anxiety, stress and depression.

The routine use of a PEMF mat has been shown to be an effective solution for mood disorders and mental health. In particular, PEMF therapy is used by patients to reduce stress and anxiety, as well as symptoms of depression (including in patients that have not found results from traditional medication).


5) PEMF devices are increasingly being used for neurological disorders. 

Research is ongoing, but multiple studies have concluded that PEMF devices may be an effective solution for mitigating or reversing the symptoms of several neurological disorders. This includes disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Research has investigated the impact of PEMF on those with stroke, migraine, dementia and neurological infections.


6) PEMF is used to improve sleep and energy.

PEMF mats are used by adults of all ages to improve the quality of their sleep and help them feel rejuvenated during the day. Pulsed electromagnetic fields help the body to increase the production of serotonin, which plays a key role in regulating sleep. Additionally, PEMF can have other energy-boosting benefits by improving circulation and heart health.
