About PEMF

An electromagnetic field is the area of force created around an electric current and is composed of an electric field and a magnetic field.

Electric fields have their origin in voltage differences: the higher the voltage, the stronger the field that results. Magnetic fields have their origin in electric currents: a stronger current results in a stronger field.

Currently, Pulsed Low Frequency Magnetic Fields are widely used in the treatment of various neurological and musculoskeletal pathologies.

Pulsed Low Frequency Magnetic Fields are designed to help the body regenerate its cells and accelerate the normal recovery process.

This is a safe way to use PEMF (approved by CSA), it does not cause pain and does not require the administration of drugs.

Pulsing Magnetic Field Therapy (PMFT) penetrates all cells, increases ion exchange, normalizes circulation and increases oxygen utilization of the cell. Invisible lines of pulsating magnetic fields simultaneously penetrate all the cells of the body to the deepest molecular level, reaching all parts of the body that can not be efficiently influenced by other therapeutic methods.

The human body is composed of a large number of cells which work through electrical impulses. If there is no adequate electrical potential in the cell, it does not work properly.

All cells have a basic electrical potential of 70 mv which is necessary to maintain normal cellular metabolism.

Diseased or damaged cells have an altered electrical potential, which is influenced by the ion exchange that occurs in the cell membrane. Pulsing Magnetic Field Therapy allows to regulate ion exchange, and improve cell function.

Pulsed magnetic fields can also dramatically improve oxygen utilization in injured tissues and promote cell repair. Various scientific investigations have shown that pulsating magnetic fields can reduce pain sensations almost immediately. This is partly due to the increase of oxygen in the affected tissue and the increase in local perfusion and capillary blood flow velocity. The therapeutic effect of these treatments lasts approximately six to eight hours.

Most chronic cases require twice-daily treatment. After 5 to 10 days, the treatment regimen can be reduced to a daily session or every other day. In complicated cases, this could take more time.


There are no contraindications for magnetic therapy, except in cases of active hemorrhage and pacemaker. In contrast to chemical drugs, there is no danger of overdose, at least within the range that is used therapeutically

This therapy is safe to use with plastic or metal implants since there is no immediate thermal effect. Hospitals use this therapeutic method to accelerate the rehabilitation of patients with nails and bone plates as it does not produce heat that damages the implants. Fractures can be treated through a plaster splint or bandages because magnetic fields pass through all materials.

Can PEMF therapy protect me from future diseases?

Cellular injury leads to a wide variety of diseases. Electromagnetic fields prevent functional deterioration of cells by improving circulation and cell repair. Magnetic fields are able to balance cellular and tissue function even before the damage and problems become obvious to you.

Why do I need treatment at the cellular level?

The therapy with pulsed electromagnetic fields modifies the electrical charge of the cells causing the opening of the channels of the cell membrane which allow nutrients to enter the cells and improve the elimination of toxins.

This helps to balance and restore cellular function which allows to improve the functioning of the organs and tissues of the body. Maintaining an adequate cellular function reverses the symptoms of aging.

How does Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy feel?

During therapy all you have to do is lie down on a comfortable mattress while the device acts. No action or physical activity is required.Because each body is unique and each patient has a different condition, the sensations may vary from one individual to another.

Frequently, patients feel a tingling in the treated area, while others experience a feeling of relaxation and well-being. Most people fall asleep and then emerge from the therapeutic experience feeling rested, calm and energized.

Are pulsed electromagnetic fields dangerous?

Therapy with pulsed electromagnetic fields is safe and has been used by millions of people for more than 70 years. Even high intensity electromagnetic fields have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of various neurological pathologies.

How quickly will my illness or health issue improve?

PEMF therapy can quickly restore minor imbalances in cells before they lead to more severe problems. Unfortunately, many people wait until they have a major health problem before seeking treatment with a PEMF system.

In this situation the treatment must be longer to obtain the control of the symptoms. Understanding the severity of the illness will help the individual to have realistic expectations of the time required to achieve the expected results.
