Frequently asked questions
PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields. These fields can be used to convert low energy cells into raw, pure energy. Each cell in the body is like a battery, which holds a charge. In order for one to maintain proper health and wellness, cells must do their jobs. Giving them a measurable electrical charge allows them to function optimally. PEMF promotes the body’s natural abilities to optimize and balance bodily functions –the definition of wellness.
It’s important to note that PEMF does not treat any medical condition, disease or illness. PEMF simply oxygenates the blood and rejuvenates cells. Increased oxygen in the blood creates healthier cells and less inflammation which in turn reduces pain.
PEMF should not be used on anyone with a pacemaker, electrical implant, using an insulin pump, If pregnant, or undergoing chemotherapy. A physician should also be consulted before using PEMF on anyone with cancer. Additionally, PEMF should not be used during any active bleeding.
