PEMF Therapy | Cultivate Health
PEMF therapy is great for anyone looking for a non-invasive, regenerative health boost.
PEMF therapy is one of the hottest trends in the wellness world today. It’s not hard to see why- it boasts a wide range of benefits from reducing inflammation to treating migraines. But does it really work? Keep reading to learn the science behind the hype and find out if PEMF therapy might be for you.
What is PEMF therapy?
PEMF (short for pulsed electromagnetic field) therapy is a treatment you experience while lying down on a PEMF mat that has a copper coil or electromagnet. Your body receives pulsed energetic currents that promote natural healing at the cellular level. These energetic currents help boost damaged or injured cells, so your body can function as it was designed.
Who is PEMF therapy for?
PEMF therapy is for anyone looking for a natural, non-invasive healing boost. If you’re pregnant or you have an electrical implant such as a pacemaker or an insulin pump, PEMF therapy isn’t for you. PEMF therapy has a wide range of benefits including:
Boosting athletic performance
Supporting the immune system
Enhanced cellular repair and recovery
How does PEMF therapy work?
It’s easiest to think of PEMF therapy as a battery charger for your cells. Our bodies rely on electricity to send throughout the body. A healthy cell has a voltage of around -20 to -25 millivolts. When our cells are run down, they don’t have enough energy to function correctly.
As you lie on the PEMF mat, the pulsed electromagnetic currents mimic the electromagnetic waves found in nature. These pulsed electromagnetic currents reach our cells and can regenerate damaged or run-down cells. This healing boost can result in reduced pain, better sleep, faster muscle recovery, and increased energy.
PEMF therapy at Cultivate Chiropractic
Not all PEMF mats are created equally. Here in our office, we opted to go with a Healthy Wave PEMF mat. We especially liked that it combined PEMF therapy with four other therapies to give you the best possible experience. These five therapies work together to deliver top-notch results. In addition to PEMF therapy, you’ll also get the benefits of far infrared heat therapy, red light therapy, negative ion therapy, and crystal mat therapy.
Far Infrared Heat Therapy
Far infrared heat therapy harnesses the power of heat to increase blood flow and circulation while providing temporary pain relief for joints, muscles, or injuries. “While a regular heater warms the surrounding air heating your skin, far infrared heat is completely different providing a deep penetrating heat 3-8 inches into your body,”. Because this type of heat can penetrate deeper into your tissue, it provides a more even and effective result. It requires a lower heat overall and reduces the risk of heat exhaustion or burns.
Red Light Therapy
We’ve mentioned red light therapy before in our article about the Vitality Booth here. Red light therapy is commonly used to treat skin concerns such as wounds, early signs of aging, and psoriasis. It works by strengthening the mitochondria, which generates energy in the cells.
Negative Ion Therapy
One of our favorite effects of our PEMF mat is the negative ion therapy Negative ions are the free-radical-fighting antioxidants that help combat illness. In the air, negative ions attract the harmful positive ions and bind with them, pulling them to the ground. Negative ions are typically found in nature, often near water. Surrounding yourself with negative ions can lead to a feeling of calm and relaxation and even boost energy.
Crystal Mat Therapy
Crystals have been renowned for ages regarding their energetic properties. Our Healthy Wave PEMF mat harnesses the powers of amethyst, jade, and tourmaline. Together, these three crystals act as a catalyst for the infrared rays and generate negative ions.
Don’t take our word for it- come try the PEMF mat for yourself! Give us a call at 402-372-0166 or schedule an appointment here.
