PEMF Therapy: An Innovative Medical Practice for Treating a Variety of Conditions

One of the reasons why physicians are increasingly recommending PEMF therapy is that it has numerous medical applications.

More than 40 years ago, PEMF therapy received its first FDA approval after it showed promising results in the healing of bone fractures. But in the decades since, PEMF has continued to demonstrate a far wider range of benefits. It has been the subject of hundreds of clinical trials and medical studies, which have proven PEMF to be an effective healing modality for pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, circulatory problems and other conditions.

In recent years, it has also been used for patients with cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy and Fibromyalgia, just to name a few.

Despite the mounting research and successful medical outcomes, many people are only just starting to hear about PEMF therapy. In this post, we explain the basics to illustrate how it works and why it’s so innovative.

How Does PEMF Therapy Work?

PEMF therapy works by stimulating cellular activity in the body with low-level electromagnetic fields. The magnetic energy is emitted in pulsating bursts from specialized devices at varying frequencies and intensities. (There’s where PEMF gets its name: it stands for pulsed electromagnetic fields.)

If you’re new to PEMF, it’s important to understand that the electromagnetic energy is so light, most people barely feel anything at all. In many ways, it’s no different from the electromagnetic waves that are emitted from the ground when you walk barefoot on grass, dirt or sand (a process commonly referred to as “grounding,” which has surprising health benefits).

With PEMF, you lie down on a specialized mat that emits the electromagnetic waves at a frequency that you set according to your condition or medical goal. Some PEMF devices, such as the iMRS Prime and Omnium1, also allow you to use special applicators to target specific areas of the body, such as specific joints or muscles.

Sessions are quick and comfortable, usually lasting no more than 30 minutes. That is what makes PEMF so innovative …

Innovation through a Simple, Non-Invasive Medical Practice

PEMF is unique from other medical practices in that it is safe, non-invasive and has no dangerous side effects. As such, physicians increasingly recommend it as an alternative (or supplement) to more traditional treatments, such as prescription medication or surgery.


PEMF therapy is well known for its ability to reduce pain and inflammation stemming from injuries, conditions like arthritis, athletics or everyday physical activity. Patients can get the relief they need without having to take potentially risky pain meds. 

The same may be true for even more dangerous conditions and diseases such as cancer. While more research is needed, initial studies have found that “PEMF therapy is safe and promising compared to other available cancer therapies. In the future, PEMFs could be used not only as primary therapy but also in combination with other common antineoplastic therapies.”

Further innovation is evident in the increasing availability of portable, at-home PEMF devices like the iMRS Prime and Omnium1. These devices are enabling anyone to experience the benefits of PEMF in the comfort of their own homes, without needing to visit a physician or clinic. In the years ahead, PEMF technology could completely upend the way we think about routine medical care by enabling patients to achieve their wellness goals in their own home.
