What is PEMF Cellular Exercise?
Pulse Electromagnetic Field is a therapy that uses electromagnetic fields to reach deep into your body and exercises you at the cellular level. When PEMF therapy penetrates your body it causes your cells to expand and contract. So what does this mean? Well, this is similar to what happens when you work out at the gym… just like your muscles, your cells need to be strong to be healthy. Weak cells are characterized by low cellular voltage. And just like the battery in your cell phone you do not want to be running on low battery power. Through this expansion and contraction of the cells, your cells are able to expel toxins and absorb nutrients efficiently and effectively. As the cells voltage increases and they grow stronger they are able to heal, grow, and reproduce successfully. Strong cells create more strong cells.
What are some benefits of PEMF Cellular Exercise?
The PEMF technology started with Nikola Tesla’s alternating current in the 1800s. Approximately 70 years ago, Dr. Harold Saxton Burr, PhD. proved that disease was preceded by a quantifiable imbalance in our electrical charge. In the late 1970s the FDA approved PEMF for stimulating bone growth. In the late 1980s the FDA approved PEMF for reducing post operative edema and pain. In the early 2000s PEMF is used in adjust to cervical fusion surgery. In the late 2000s the FDA approved PEMF for use with depression patients who were shown to be unresponsive to medication. It is currently being used to support whole body wellness.
What ages can benefit from PEMF?
People of all ages and stages of life can benefit from PEMF therapy. There are no age restrictions… anyone with cells can benefit and enjoy PEMF.
Does PEMF therapy hurt?
No we operate in the realm of pleasant, not painful! You will feel a gentle pulsing or tapping and it often is so enjoyable that clients fall asleep.
Is PEMF safe?
Absolutely! This therapy charges your cells and allows them to function at their fullest capacity. Experiments conducted at Old Dominion University and supported by the U.S.Air Force Office of Scientific Research observed the effects of ultra-powerful pulses on living tissue. As an emerging field of study, Bioelectrics, reveal “these powerful, ultrashort voltage pulses do something nothing else can—harmlessly slip past the cell’s exterior to shock the vital structures within.”
Who should NOT have PEMF?
If you have a pacemaker, are pregnant, have a history of seizures, or have any electronic device implanted in your body (that cannot be removed for the session)… PEMF is not an option for you. Please ask us about other modalities that may be helpful.
Will I have to undress for PEMF?
No, all PEMF therapy is done fully clothed. We ask that you remove your outdoor shoes but if you want to pack a pair of indoor shoes or slippers that is 100% ok and often encouraged. We also provide blankets for those cooler days.
How long are the PEMF therapy sessions?
We recommend 1 hour sessions to receive the full benefit of cellular exercise. We do have out of town clients that like to maximize their healing to a maximum of 2 hours per day.
How many sessions would I need?
This completely depends on your specific needs and/or concerns. Different problems require different amounts of treatment. We have wonderful and affordable packages to suit whatever your needs may be.
How far apart should I space my PEMF sessions?
The beauty of PEMF is that the sessions build on themselves and the effects are cumulative. It is recommended that when you start PEMF, that you come at least 2x a week, but you can come every day or up to 2 hours a day if that works better for you. After your initial intro series of appointments we offer packages and maintenance plans with weekly or monthly sessions…. again case dependent.
Do I need a doctor referral to schedule an appointment?
No. While many clients come to us at the recommendation of a physician, a referral is not required.
What PEMF technology do you use at Pulse Spa?
We use the Pulse XL Pro which is the only cellular exercise system in the world to combine a solid-state engineering, integrated electronics, and user-controlled adjustable pulse and magnetic field strength. We combine the PEMF table, chair, pads, paddles and rings to create a wellness program that is client based and focused on your individual and specific needs.
What do you recommend I do post treatment?
Hydrate, re-mineralize and go about your day to day life. It is important to hydrate as your cells have expelled toxins and the detoxification process needs support through the use of humic/fulvic supplementation (recommended but not required) and a whole food diet.
How will I feel after my session?
Most people feel fantastic after their PEMF sessions… however some people do feel tired or achy after their first session. This may be an indication that many toxins were released from your cells during your session. Taking a remineralization supplement post treatment can help with this and the next visit you have to our Spa please let us know so that we can adjust accordingly.
What can I do to get the most benefit from PEMF Therapy?
Eating a clean, healthy diet that includes raw, fresh vegetables and fruits and being well hydrated are a great way to support any wellness program. We also recommend the humic/fulvic supplement before and after your session.
Is PEMF FDA Approved? Health Canada Approved?
Yes! PEMF and PEMF Medical devices (such as the system we use) are approved by Health Canada, the FDA and EC (European Health Community).
Will insurance cover my sessions?
Unfortunately we are not an approved provider for any insurance company. You could check with your insurance company to see if they will reimburse you for part or all of your sessions. You can also check with the administrator of your Health Savings Account to see if those funds can be used for your PEMF Cellular exercise/Cellular massage sessions.
