This is Part One in a series on PEMF or Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy, which is a modality we are pleased to offer in addition to Frequency Specific Microcurrent right here at The Healing Collective.
WHAT IS PEMF?
Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy is a noncontact, noninvasive, non-pharmacological modality that is used to promote optimal cellular function so that your body can do what it is designed to do: heal.
PEMF and associated therapies do not claim to diagnose, treat or cure any disease.
Rather, PEMF jump-starts our body's own innate healing processes. At The Healing Collective, we operate with the understanding that the human body is inherently self-healing, self-regulating, and self-regenerating. When we provide the necessary components for this natural process to succeed (which may include targeted supplements based off lab results, a healthy diet, specific therapeutic exercise, and FSM or PEMF electrotherapeutic inputs), the body is able to truly rebalance and optimize its healing capacity.
PEMF helps develop and maintain general cellular health and function, and can attune the natural electromagnetic field of the human body in a gentle and noninvasive way.
“You can think of PEMF therapy as a whole-body battery recharger. By using a PEMF therapy mat for just two times per day for eight minutes, you recharge your 100 trillion cells: improving ATP production, increasing oxygenation, enhancing circulation, promoting hydration, facilitating detoxification, and gaining a better overall absorption of nutrients.”
–Bryant Andrew Meyers PEMF: The Fifth Element of Health
PEMF has been studied for its notable effects on pain and depression, and there is promise for the expansion of this intervention as research continues.
Currently, Dr. Jessie integrates PEMF therapies into Physical Therapy and Frequency Specific Microcurrent sessions that take into account your unique history and clinical picture. You can contact us to schedule a free 15 minute consult to learn more.
