What is Pulsed Electromagnetic field Therapy?

PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. The PEMF process involves generating and directing powerful, pulsed energy waves toward damaged or injured areas of the patient’s body. These waves quickly pass through the cells in the damaged region, increasing the spin of the electrons contained within them as a result.

It is this amplified electron spinning which restores the cell’s transmembrane potential (its energy), and brings the cell to homeostasis at the same time. Unlike some other forms of CAM, which only provide temporary relief, this positive cellular effect lasts for as many as four days after the session has ended. Essentially, PEMF therapy is the induction of electricity into the cells to help stimulate or promote potential improvements.

A Deeper understanding: Increasing Electron Spin

Newer cell phones are able to use Qi charging. Qi is wireless power transfer through induction, and is seen in the form of a mat or circular ring that the phone rests on. The electromagnetic field produced by the mat excites the electrons in the battery (makes them spin around faster), and recharges the battery inside the phone. PEMF is induction charging for the cells in the body

How PEMF Works

Perhaps the easiest way to understand PEMF is to think in terms of each cell in your body as if it were a little battery. Like with any battery, sometimes your cells become tired and worn, whether due to age, stress, overuse, or damage, making it more difficult for them to fight off any type of potentially damaging force or illness.


Through PEMF therapy, your batteries (i.e. your cells) essentially become recharged. The energy supplied via PEMF devices gives cells the energy they need to ward off whatever is threatening them, whether it’s trauma or a disease-based attack. This makes it easier for your patient’s body to restore its health naturally, simply by using the electrical currents and impulses that are already interacting within and throughout their cells. In essence, high-powered PEMF is like a “battery re-charger” for your depleted cells.
