FAQ

What Is PEMF?

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy (PEMF) is an FDA approved treatment that sends a PEMF signal into your body simulating the same frequency that the earth puts off and that we need to be healthy. The signal is delivered through surgical grade anti-microbial rubber tubing that is placed on the clients ​body in different locations. These pulses go 16 inches into the body tissues to target weak cells and recharges them which has proven to aid in faster healing.

The cells of people and animals (muscle, skin, bones, organs etc.) rely on electricity to function properly. All cells have membranes that balance positive and negative charges inside and outside of the cell. Injury, age, surgery, or illness cause your cells deteriorate, lose their magnetic charges, and ultimately the ability to function properly.

Inflammation, fatigue, and pain are caused by these damaged cells. PEMF devices target the “tired” cells and “recharge” the them to their healthy balanced electromagnetic state. When they have the proper energy, the healthy cells are able to carry out their specific functions such as repairing damaged tissues, ridding waste from the body, and metabolizing the nutrients and minerals they need.


Who Can Benefit From PEMF?

Every living being can benefit. You do not need to be sick or have an injury to use PEMF. It is FDA approved for many things, but it is mainly considered a wellness device because there is not anything that cannot benefit from good circulation, reduced inflammation in their body and improved use of oxygen among an infinite number of other health benefits that have been scientifically proven with PEMF.

What Should I Expect During My PEMF Appointment?

Whether in or out of our office, our machine(s) and attachments are fully sanitized. We do ask that you sign a waiver and our Practitioner will discuss the reason for the appointment and the whole process with you before beginning. 

You may return to your normal activities immediately after.

  • For our person sessions, you do not need any kind of massage table or special chair, just sitting in your favorite chair/couch works best. The energy from the MagnaWave goes 16 inches into your body penetrating through bone and every type of tissue so there is no need to undress. Just sit back and relax.
  • For our animal sessions, the animals will need to be contained by being tied up (halter or leash and lead), held in hand, or cattle chutes for livestock. Owners do not need to be present, but are always welcome.

How Many Sessions Do I Need?

Every client is different. Different species, different ailments or illnesses and different circumstances. We assess each client and discuss a treatment plan with you according to your (or your animal's) needs.

PEMF is like medication, one time is enough for some things, but not very often. Also like medication, we see great results with what we call "Front Loading" in many cases where you do 2-3 treatments a week for 1-3 weeks and then you might be able to taper off to 1-2 times a week for a while. If you do one treatment and then wait until your pain is bad again, you will have a hard time staying ahead of the pain.

During this time, your body is gaining the energy it needs to heal itself.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Everyone (people and animals) responds differently to the energy. Here are a list of things you might notice and none are considered and "adverse" reaction:

More Energy

Relaxation/Sleepy

Increased Appetite - Especially in Animals

Increased Desire For Water

Increased Urination/Bowel Movements - Due to Detoxification

Are There Any Situations Where PEMF Is Not Permitted?

There are a few circumstances where we would not be able to perform PEMF sessions. We do not treat clients with any battery powered implanted devices like pacemakers or defibrillators. We are also not able to treat clients with any active bleeding or if they are pregnant (people and animals). There is not enough research to confirm whether or not PEMF is safe or dangerous for pregnant people or animals, so we error on the side of caution.

The History Behind PEMF

Nicola Tesla studied PEMF treatment in the early 1900s. PEMF treatment was approved by the FDA in 1979 to stimulate bone growth and treat non-union fractures. NASA spent $3.5 million in researching PEMF treatments and now have PEMF machines on the Space Station. In 1995, scientists at the University of Kentucky found that soft tissues responded favorably to pulsed electromagnetic fields. Widely used in European countries, Veterinarians began using PEMF treatment in the USA on racehorses. Pulsed electromagnetic fields, like in CAT and MRI scans, are widely used in medicine to help diagnose and map the body’s tissues. These tissues and organs have their own electromagnetic signatures. PEMF helps “re-charge” our bodies own systems and gives our cells the energy they need to heal themselves and at a faster rate.
