What is Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy (P.E.M.F.)?

Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy is centered around a recreation of the earth’s own healing electromagnetic pulse. Every human body has an energy field with a radius of about 15 feet which pulses and fluctuates at the same natural frequencies of the EARTH (from 0 to 30 Hz). All life on earth exists in complex organisms of various species because of regular electromagnetic exchanges of energy between cells. Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy introduces a low frequency oscillating electromagnetic field that re-energizes the 100 TRILLION cells of the human body, at speeds faster than the speed of light creating 400 BILLION reactions every SECOND involving over 100,000 biologically active molecules.

As many of us are increasingly becoming aware of, the body is amazingly capable of HEALING ITSELF when provided with the natural essential elements that support ALL life. These include organic nutrient rich FOOD, an ample amount of clean pure WATER, periodic exposure to warm SUNLIGHT, regular vigorous movement or EXERCISE, a sufficient amount of OXYGEN in clean fresh air, regular nightly deep restorative SLEEP, and the equilibrium restoring  ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS of the EARTH.


Why do we NEED Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy? 


In today’s modern world, most of us are completely cut off from the “electromagnetic heartbeat” of the earth. We spend an overwhelming majority of our day indoors (for an average of 90% of the day in the U.S.) in buildings constructed of insulating man-made materials that cut off or minimize the earth’s healthy electromagnetic frequencies with additional interference of wiring in the walls that emit unhealthy frequencies (50 Hz – 60 Hz, aka “Dirty Electricity”). The synthetic flooring blocks us from the earth’s healing frequencies for all or most of the day, and then maybe we get in cars with insulating rubber tires, and walk for a minimal amount of time in shoes with 100% synthetic or partially man-made rubber/plastic soles, often on surfaces like asphalt that by itself BLOCKS the earth’s electromagnetic energy.

In addition to the damage being inflicted by humankind in our unnatural modern lifestyles, the earth’s magnetic field is declining in intensity, most likely due to an inevitable magnetic pole reversal that on average occurs naturally about once every 300,000 years. As the last one occurred about 780,000 years ago, this gradual phenomenon that takes thousands of years to complete would explain why the earth’s electromagnetic field has decreased by about 50% in the last 300 years. At the current rate the earth’s magnetic field will “disappear” in the next 1500 to 2000 years.

SO… we are unknowingly REMOVING ourselves from the naturally healing electromagnetic energy of the earth due to our modern lifestyles that minimize our exposure to nature (Note: this is a major unacknowledged reason why many people who work outdoors, and who are in genuine physical contact with the earth, are in better general health than their peers.).. AND to exacerbate the problem, the earth’s natural magnetic field is declining significantly as a natural phenomenon. …THAT MUST BE ALL THERE IS TO IT RIGHT?


It should be of no surprise to most that in today’s “energetically toxic” modern world we are exposed to 100 million times more dangerous man-made EMF radiation that our grandparents were 80 years ago or so. This form of “energy pollution” is perhaps the most insidious and compounds the toxicity and stress on the body caused by “chemical pollution” which more of us are aware of.


These harmful EMF frequencies come from a variety of sources to include Extremely Low Frequencies (E.L.F.’s @ 50 Hz to 60 Hz), many of which are technologies we’ve been surrounded by for DECADES worth of pollution such as:

  • -Power Lines (especially living within 500 meters, above OR under the ground)
  • -Small Personal Appliances (Hair Dryers, Electric Blankets, Heating Pads, Electric Alarm Clocks, etc)
  • -Large Electrical Home Appliances (Refrigerators, Stoves, Dishwashers, Water Heaters, etc)
  • -Televisions (Plasma TV’s are the worst offenders)
  • -Laptop/Desktop Computers, Tablets, Mobile Phones (even when NOT connected to WiFi or 3G/4G network)
  • -CFL’s (Compact Fluorescent Bulbs). These “Energy Saving” spiral bulbs that also contain toxic mercury gases and emit ultraviolet radiation in addition to more dangerous EMFs

In addition to these low frequencies, higher microwave and radio frequencies emitted by more modern technologies pose an even more serious health risk  and thus have been listed by the World Health Organization as a “Group 2B Carcinogen”. These frequencies are primarily emitted by more modern inventions (with the exception of the microwave oven) by the following sources:

  • -Mobile Cell Phones 
  • -Cordless “Home” Phones
  • -Bluetooth Devices
  • -Computers (w/ WiFi and/or Bluetooth ON)
  • -Microwave Ovens
  • -Cordless Baby Monitors
  • -Electricity “Smart” Meters
  • -Wireless Networks (WiFi)
  • -Mobile/Cell Phone Towers


Many people these days are suffering from that the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) has termed “Electro-Hypersensitivity” or E.H.S., which causes a variety of problematic symptoms to include the following:

-Chronic Fatigue



-Chronic Pain

-Skin Disorders




-Cognitive Dysfunction (“Brain Fog”)

-Behavioral / Mood Disorders

Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (P.E.M.F.) therapy works  by regulating processes involving INFLAMMATION in the body.

Chronic Inflammation (and the Oxidative Stress it induces) is now known and recognized as the root cause of most modern physical and mental disorders* 


As Abraham Liboff, Ph.D. has so aptly stated “… it is possible to view the living system as an electromagnetic entity, with the response of the system to a given electric or magnetic signal as an outcome expected on the basis of physical law.” PEMF therapy has scientifically documented beneficial effects on multiple biological tissues ranging from bone to brain. The reason for these beneficial effects is because PEMF therapy triggers a cascade of biological processes that supports sick damaged tissues. Before any chemical or physiological response is elicited in a biological system, there is always an exchange of energy. The use of specific pulsed electromagnetic frequencies prompts this therapeutic exchange of energy in a safe and cost-effective manner. Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy re-energizes damaged cells by inducing electrical changes within the cell that restore it to it’s normal healthy state.  Because of this, cellular metabolism is boosted, blood cells are regenerated, circulation is improved and oxygen carrying capacity is increased. Ultimately, the immune system becomes healthier, the nervous system relaxes, bones and joints become stronger and vital organs such as the liver, kidneys and colon are able to rid themselves of impurities thus detoxifying the body.  Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy can reduce pain and improve the quality of your life by allowing your body to function as it was designed to do.

Research in Europe over the past 40 years has proven Neurological, Physiological and Psychological benefits with the use of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy.  Additionally, it has repeatedly shown better tissue repair in far less time, with no adverse reactions.

*Chronic Inflammation can only be treated with a significant positive lifestyle change to include a balanced healthy diet and clean water, unpolluted oxygen rich air, regular exercise and restorative sleep, healthy stress management, and exposure to the healing forces of nature (daily sunlight of the Circadian Rhythm, moderate sun exposure, good P.E.M.F.s, and “Green Time”). One or two elements is not enough to achieve complete health.

**the U.S. F.D.A. has thus far only approved Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy for the following conditions: Bone growth, wound healing, pain management/ tissue inflammation, and “treatment resistant” psychological depression.

How does Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy work? 

By simulating the natural frequencies of the earth’s energy, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy “jump starts” cellular metabolism by vibrating at a frequency that allows the cell to open up transport channels in the cell membrane to allow the cell to fully absorb vital nutrients such as minerals, glucose, and oxygen. At the same time it can excrete poisonous toxins such as heavy metals (e.G. lead, mercury, cadmium, etc) and plastics that are “shaken loose” from blocking some of these nutrient channels. Aside from allowing for more efficient cellular metabolism, the pulsed electromagnetic energy actually recharges the body’s energy stores at the cellular level in two manners. Transmembrane Potential (TMP), which is voltage across the cell membrane is increased sharply; as is the cell’s primary form of mitochondrial energy, Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).


The nutrients taken in by the cell’s mitochondria contain highly energetic chemical bonds. These “fuel molecules” are disassembled inside the mitochondria to release their chemical bond energy. When one phosphate is released what remains is Adenosine Diphosphate (ADP), or a “discharged battery cell”. These “battery cells” are then recharged from ADP to ATP.

According to Nobel Prize Laureate, Dr. Otto Warburg, cells maintain a voltage across their membrane. Each cell is designed to have a positive charge on the outside and a negative charge on the inside. The outside is charged with Sodium ions, while the inside of the cell is charged with potassium ions. The two charges are separated by the cell membrane which serves as an insulator. Within the cell are ion pumps which pump ions into and out of the cell through the cell membrane. More potassium ions are pumped into the cell while sodium ions are pumped out of the cell, positively charging the cell. The difference in electrical potential (voltage) across the membrane is referred to as trans-membrane Potential (TMP). This process of charging the cells creates a second type of “cell battery” or energy storage, (ATP is the first). Cells will power-down due to the aging process, stress, unhealthy diet, and the toxic environment we live in. Dr. Warburg found healthy people had cell voltages of 70-100 mV, people with chronic illnesses had cell voltages between 30-50 mV, whereas cancer patients displayed cell voltages less than 15-20 mV. Diminished cellular voltage has a direct correlation to disease and sickness. Cancer cannot thrive in highly charged cells. This is why we never hear of cancer of the heart, as it is the muscle that has the highest voltage of any organ in the body.



Electromagnetic frequencies at approximately 33 Hz and higher cause nervousness, impatience, aggression, anxiety, panic, and eventually “burn out” followed by depression when our nervous system is under constant bombardment. We are under near constant exposure to these harmful electromagnetic frequencies in our modern world.

  • Household Electric Currents oscillate at 50 Hz to 60 Hz
  • Cordless Phones DECT technology transmit at 100 Hz non-stop
  • Mobile “Cell” Phones are 217 Hz per second
  • Bluetooth Headsets transmit at pulses of 1600 Hz (@ 2.45 Ghz) 
  • WLAN/WiFi transmits at the ULTRA HIGH frequency of 2.45 Ghz (that’s 2450000000 Hz!!!)

Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy serves to “re-balance” the various human cell frequencies to those of the calming earth frequencies so that healing and rest are possible.

Why Frequencies and Intensity Matter

In order for Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy to be effective on the entire body, the field strength of the pulsed electromagnetic signal must be sufficiently powerful to penetrate deep inside the desired tissues, bones, and organs. This means that the applied intensity levels must be high enough or else only a minimal and superficial therapeutic effect will occur. At an absolute minimum 10 Gauss should be used for daily routine treatments, as weaker intensities will not penetrate far enough into deeply located tissues. As an example, if an intensity of just 1 Gauss is used; the intensity will drop to 1/2 of it’s strength at 1″ into the body (and to 1/4 of it’s strength at 2″ into the body, etc) . So indeed tissues located deep within the body would not receive enough intensity to have enough of a therapeutic effect.

The various cells of the body respond to different frequencies and intensities. Blood cells may respond to a slightly different set of pulsed frequencies than bone cells as an example. Once the proper frequencies are transmitted, the pulsed electromagnetic effect causes small mechanical movements, resulting in small electrical currents inside the various types of cells. These electrical microcurrents cause the beneficial effects inside the body, and if the intensities of the pulsing magnetic fields are too low to penetrate the desired tissue, organ, or bone; then logically no positive effect will occur for deeply located or especially dense tissues. Musculo-Skeletal conditions and many chronic conditions will require higher intensity fields to achieve measurable results in a reasonable amount of time. Higher intensity electromagnetic fields are also more appropriate for those with larger body masses, to include athletes AND those who are simply overweight. In contrast, low intensity treatments are often used by people who are in relatively good health and simply looking for promoting and maintaining that good balanced state of health with regular treatment sessions (most typically with daily treatments). In addition, lower intensities are more appropriate for people who suffer from hypersensitivities (bio-chemically OR bio-energetically), to include environmental chemicals, food additives, and negative energy (i.e. EMFs).


Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy FAQs

What does PEMF treatment feel like?

Since everyone is unique and has different physical problems or conditions, each individual will experience something different.  A person can experience many different sensations.  Frequently, people may feel a tingling in an area of an old injury, while others say they feel a sense of wellness and relaxation. There are numerous types of therapeutic and intensity settings on the device,  allowing the practitioner to increase or decrease the settings to the specific needs of the individual.

How long does a treatment session last?

Each treatment is tailored to the specific needs of the client, but are relatively short in duration and generally last from 10 – 30 minutes.

Is a PEMF treatment painful?

No, treatment with PEMF is never painful.  It will actually promote short-term relaxation, and most clients go into a meditative state.

Do I wear my clothes during the treatment?

Yes, all treatments are administered through clothing.

How many treatment sessions are needed to offer benefits?

Treatment response and number of sessions required can vary with each individual, however many clients notice improvements after their first session.  For full beneficial results, many therapeutic conditions require on average 6-10 sessions.

Will my health insurance cover PEMF treatments?

No, health insurance policies do not currently cover PEMF treatments.

Who can use PEMF treatments?

Anyone can use PEMF therapy.  Essentially any individual at any age group at any level of wellness can use this therapy.

Who should not use PEMF therapy?

There are a few occasions when PEMF therapy should not used.  These are any persons who may be or who are pregnant, individuals with pacemakers, hearing aids or other electrical implants or devices.  Also, any individuals with organ transplants or those who suffer from epilepsy and those with non-MRI safe UID.

How long will the results last?

The duration of the results depends on the individual, and the condition for which PEMF therapy is being used.  Some clients experience results lasting a day or two, while for others it can last weeks or indefinitely.

How is the PEMF treatment administered?

All that is required of the client is to lie on a table (similar to a massage table) that has a PEMF system on it.  No action or physical activity is required.  The practitioner will turn on the PEMF system and may place an additional pad on an area of the body that needs direct therapy.

How often can I use PEMF therapy?

You can use PEMF therapy as often as you choose.  Depending on the clients needs, the practitioner may suggest using the therapy once a day or once a week.  PEMF treatment is safe to use with no negative side effects, so it is really up to the client how often they would like to schedule treatments.
