PEMF Mat Therapy
Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field Therapy, commonly known as PEMF, is energy medicine modeled after the earth’s own electromagnetic pulse field. PEMF Therapy, gradually enhances the self-healing capacity of the body by introducing a low frequency pulsed electro-magnetic field that stimulates micro-capillary production in the body enhancing circulation, oxygenation and hydration, greatly increasing the body’s cellular ability to absorb nutrients and remove toxins.
Electromagnetic technology is readily used in modern medical practice to measure brain waves with Electroencephalogram (EEG) and cardiac waves through Electrocardiogram (ECG); when a person goes into cardiac arrest a defibrillator is used to deliver a therapeutic dose of electrical energy to the heart to restart it.
PEMF technology stemmed from radio frequency (RF) diathermy, a moving — or resonating — magnetic field can create currents without heating and thus directly alter cellular signaling. It has been firmly established that tissues including blood, muscle, ligaments, bone and cartilage respond to biophysical input, including electrical and electromagnetic fields. New studies show that with the proper field intensity and frequency, treatment with PEMF appears to be disease-modifying.
In 2004, a PEMF system was approved by the FDA as an adjunct to cervical fusion surgery in patients at high risk for non-fusion; since then the FDA reclassified PEMF devices from the Class 3 category to a Class 2 status.
