8+ Benefits of PEMF Therapy

In the past, we’ve covered how PEMF therapy delivers the same – and better – benefits to meditation. PEMF therapy mimics the Earth’s magnetic frequency (7.8 Hz to be exact) that serves as a healing resource for your body.

PEMF is a powerful healing tool, for muscle recovery, resetting the central nervous system, strengthening the immune system, and improving cellular health. There are SO many benefits to a PEMF therapy session – it’s out-of-this-world, literally: astronauts use PEMF to recover from a debilitating space mission.

What is PEMF therapy? 

PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. This type of therapy sends bursts of low-level magnetic frequencies directly into the body. These low frequencies pass through the skin to penetrate and heal muscle, bones, tendons, and even organs. Many people like PEMF therapy as a non-invasive way to treat injuries, chronic pain, and even long-term issues like depression and diabetes. The goal is to expedite recovery from the inside out.

When you get PEMF therapy, you’ll use a PEMF machine, either a mat or pad, on your body. Electromagnetic pulses penetrate the body at the cellular level, stimulating your cells to begin the natural healing process. Here’s are some benefits you can start to see from PEMF in just a few treatments.

8+ PEMF Benefits

Literally, there are so many benefits to a regular PEMF therapy session. Research by NASA and other bodies has found that PEMF therapy can deliver the following results:

  • Better circulation
  • Pain reduction
  • Improved muscle relaxation and performance
  • Decreased inflammation and swelling
  • Improved oxygenation in tissue
  • Enhanced cellular repair and recovery
  • Improved immune system
  • Better sleep

ASA has found that PEMF therapy offers rehabilitation benefits for astronauts returning from space. “Lack of gravity impacts bones, muscles, and cardiovascular system. The transition of astronauts from one gravity field to another is an intense experience that requires some time for them to adopt,” reports one article. PEMF has been found by NASA researchers to significantly stimulate tissue growth and repair, enhance cell function, and moderate some neurodegenerative diseases. If it’s good enough for astronauts, it’s good enough for us earthlings, no?

There’s also some evidence to suggest that PEMF therapy can help with anti-aging. PEMF pulses can stimulate the production of HGH and Melatonin, two hormones that are known to have anti-aging properties (and help with sleep). Biohackers love PEMF therapy for its potential to extend our lifespans and improve cellular regeneration.

PEMF works to stimulate your Autonomic Nervous System, a part of the brain and nervous system that controls many parts of your body’s healing and health abilities. It also controls breathing, heart rate, and other vital functions. When you’re able to balance your ANS, your body is able to function and recover properly in less time. Pretty amazing, right?


PEMF Therapy with Infrared 

PEMF therapy isn’t the only way to stimulate natural healing. Our Sauna Blankets offer infrared heat which, like PEMF, deeply penetrates the body to enhance blood flow and circulation, reduce inflammation and tension, and promote detoxification at a cellular level. It relaxes your ANS with the same effectiveness as PEMF pulses giving you a healthy glow while helping your body relax and switch into healing mode. Think of it as recharging your batteries with a little heat and electronic pulsing.

When the Infrared Sauna Blanket warms up your body — bringing circulation and relaxation while sending healing vibrations — your central nervous system is able to go into rest mode, allowing the mind to quickly follow suit. A quick session with the Infrared Sauna Blanket each day enhances natural recovery and can give you the same results as an hour of yoga or meditation – without all the bending over backward.

The best part: our Sauna Blankets combine the slimming, detoxifying, and mood-heightening benefits with on-the-go, at-home convenience. Read more about our Sauna Blankets in this post and get a dose of PEMF therapy to help your body heal.
