PEMF, also known as pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, pulse magnetotherapy, ultra-long wave magnetic field, and many other names, is a stimulation method that uses time varying low frequency magnetic fields, typically running between 1 and 1,000 Hz. PEMF is considered an electrotherapy treatment, however, it differs from the more commonly known transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) or microcurrent therapy (MET) in that it uses magnetic fields instead of electric currents.
What is PEMF?
In essence, PEMF emits a pulsating electromagnetic field at very low frequencies (0.1-1000Hz usually) which is placed against the part of the body that needs to be treated. It has also been shown that the pulsing magnetic field can help speed up the body’s natural ability to heal (for example, bone fractures, wounds, etc.) and recharge your body cells (for example, blood cells) to increase your energy levels. Almost anyone can safely use the treatment under proper instruction, with the exception of people with pacemakers, pregnant women, epileptics, etc. PEMF therapies have evolved from being used in clinical settings to home uses for general wellness.
Benefits of PEMF
Even though PEMF is not a magic bullet nor a wonder drug, it does have a number of clinically proven health benefits and treatment results. This is something worth everyone’s attention, as it is truly a safe, drug and surgery free wellness option. PEMF speeds up your body’s natural healing process by restoring the body’s balance. Some people refer to it as regenerative medicine or energy medicine. A discussion of which device or method is effective for treating which type of illness is outside the scope of this web page and section. Nevertheless, when the benefits of a PEMF product seem too good to be true or sound miraculous, you should be extra cautious. A reputable and honest PEMF manufacturer won’t make claims without some kind of empirical evidence to support them.
There are several benefits of PEMF therapy, namely
- Stronger Bones
- Endorphins and Pain Relief
- Better Sleep and HGH secretion
- More Energy ATP
- Better Oxygenation and Circulation
- Improved Immunity
- Relaxation & Stress Reduction
- Nerve and Tissue Regeneration
Scientific Evidence for PEMF Therapy
In clinical settings, PEMF technology can be used to relieve localized pain, treat bone fractures, improve blood circulation, and provide a more holistic complement to treating cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, and fibromyalgia.. Do a search on “Pulsed Electromagnetic Field” at PUBMED and you can easily find thousands of studies done. The number of studies across various applications has significantly increased over the last few years. Although, from a clinical studies perspective, most conventional practitioners still think there are not enough studies to support the widespread application of these therapies beyond pain reduction, bone fracture recovery, and blood circulation improvement.

As an alternative to subjective feeling, a common method of verifying the effect of PEMF (apart from blood analysis) can be accomplished with darkfield microscopy, body thermal imaging, and energy scanning – a somewhat controversial method. Following are several examples of pre and post-tests.
Before and After Effect of PEMF
Even though pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs) can have a significant effect on trillions of cells in our bodies, we rarely feel or sense them through our sensory systems. Nevertheless, there are still some technologies that could be used to demonstrate its effectiveness and effects on our bodies.
Dark Field Microscopy Observation
Examining your cells under a microscope is the most visual way to determine if they have been recharged by PEMF. A dark field microscopy image of the blood sample below shows the blood cells’ condition before and after PEMF therapy. Non-optimal body conditions typically see red blood cells clustered together (1st snapshot), limiting their surface area for oxygen and nutrient delivery. After the treatment, the difference is obvious from the second snapshot, which shows declustered red blood cells. The benefits are obvious – declustered blood cells deliver nutrients and oxygen more effectively, restoring cells’ optimal efficiency. PEMF full-body therapy usually leads to increased vitality and energy. The following snapshots are taken based on sessions done with the iMRS system.
Thermal Images Observation
Below are two thermal images showing the body temperature before and after PEMF treatment. It can be seen in the second image that the body temperature increased by at least 1-2 degrees Celsius after 8 minutes of treatment, which proves how effective it is to increase blood circulation.
Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) Observation
In another independent experiment using a Bio-well reader, we were able to observe a substantial increase in energy field after a 15 minute session on a PEMF system. These readings are all done using machines, eliminating the unwanted effect of a placebo.
Magnetic field applications can generally be divided into two broad categories. The specific application (therapy) used by hospitals and in veterinary medicine in the past 60 years involves a specific frequency pattern and high intensity – these applications are specific to specific treatments (e.g. acceleration of bone cell regeneration). Another approach is to take a perfectly natural ” cocktail ” of intensity (low-medium), frequency, signal structure and resonance capability using nature as an example, such as the iMRS system which is designed 100% based on this principle. As a result, we get a fundamental, holistic wellness service that significantly impacts the body (even if we don’t feel it immediately). Furthermore, it is completely safe, does not have any side effects, and is easy to operate.
