If you’re looking for a drug-free approach to pain relief, or a natural, non-invasive way to enhance your wellbeing as a whole, you may want to consider Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy. Here’s what to know about this type of alternative therapy, and how it can benefit you. Plus, we look at an easy-to-use PEMF device you can use to harness the power of natural energy, in the comfort of your home.
What is PEMF therapy?
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy, also known as PEMF, is a drug-free, non-invasive alternative treatment method that has traditionally been used to manage pain. Centred on the principles of electricity and magnetism, it uses electromagnetic frequencies to enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
In addition to providing natural pain relief, research supports evidence that PEMF therapy can be used to:
- build immunity against disease;
- reduce inflammation;
- improve athletic performance, and help with warm-up and recovery;
- manage symptoms of depression and anxiety;
- help reduce stress;
- boost mental focus, productivity and performance; and
- improve sleep and relaxation.
How does PEMF therapy work?
Think of every cell in your body as a battery – each cell is capable of holding a charge. The better our cells are charged, the better our bodies can function – and when a cell’s charge is low, it needs to be recharged. For instance, illness, fatigue or reduced function can be indicators that cells need recharging.
Now, think of PEMF technology as a battery charger. It uses electromagnetic frequencies to recharge those cells and essentially recharge the body’s entire electrical system.
Therefore, the therapy aims to bring the body’s natural electrical charge back into balance. You’ll need to use a specialised PEMF machine that passes pulsed electromagnetic fields into the body for cells to absorb. These energy waves are thought to promote cell repair by increasing circulation and speeding up the body’s natural capability to self-heal.
If you’re picturing some crazy device with wires everywhere, don’t! It’s not as complicated as it might sound. In fact, all you need to do is sit or lay on what looks like a yoga mat to receive the electromagnetic waves. Think of it as wireless charging!
Safe, easy-to-use home wellness technology
PEMF devices have become popular for home use in recent years, thanks to easy-to-use technologies, and the safe and non-invasive nature of the therapy. Indeed, an estimated 80 percent of these devices on the market are designed for home-based care, says the team at Eastbay Wellness. The company offers a range of home wellness technologies, including PEMF devices, here in Singapore.
The Eastbay Wellness team has seen a surge in demand in recent years – particularly among busy expats looking for easy ways to optimise their health, and in the comfort of their own homes. A top seller is the iMRS system by Swiss Bionic, a Switzerland-based company that has a support office here in Singapore.
The latest generation iMRS prime offers full-body and localised PEMF therapy, as well as a range of benefits that go far beyond the basics. Three key features that set it apart from other PEMF devices include:
#1 Far infrared ray (FIR) therapy
Like heat therapy, FIR therapy reportedly improves sleep and relaxation, pain relief and muscle recovery and increases oxygen supply to tissues, but without the intense heat. The iMRS Prime’s hybrid FIR mat offers the benefits of both FIR and PEMF therapy, but all in one system.
#2 Audio-visual brainwave entrainment
Brainwave entrainment is a method of syncing your brainwaves with certain stimuli, using music and other sounds, lights and visuals. Almost like a form of meditation, this type of therapy involves wearing a headset that looks a lot like a VR headset.
Brainwave entrainment is commonly used to:
- alleviate stress and anxiety;
- help manage early stage depression;
- promote better sleep;
- improve mental focus, performance and productivity; and
- promote relaxation
The brainwave entrainment system is integrated into the iMRS Prime app, so it can be used on its own or during a PEMF session.
#3 Heart rate variable (HRV) bio-feedback
This type of technology can reflects your body’s stress levels and energy reserves. According to Eastbay Wellness, no other home-based PEMF system in the world incorporates this type of sophisticated feedback technology. Additionally, the device has the capacity to store HRV data, which can be exported and assessed by health professionals, if needed.
