What is PEMF?

Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequency, or PEMF, is used to positively impact energy within damaged or injured cells. It does this by directing electromagnetic pulses toward the affected cells, stimulating a healthier response.

Perhaps the easiest way to understand PEMF is to think in terms of each cell in your body as if it were a little battery. Like with any battery, sometimes your cells become tired and worn, whether due to age, stress, overuse, or damage, making it more difficult for them to fight off any type of potentially damaging force or illness.


The electromagnetic pulses find the injured area, spark the body’s natural activity, and rejuvenate the affected bone or tissue. This speeds up the recovery time and gets athletes back onto the field quicker than they would from traditional rehabilitation.


But the technology isn’t just for athletes.  PEMF therapy has a wide variety of uses for everyone and has brought unthinkable recovery to injuries and ailments.

A PEMF device effects and changes body processes using electromagnetic pulses. PEMF devices are used worldwide for medical conditions in animals and humans. Considered safe and therapeutic, practitioners use a PEMF device to stimulate cell metabolism in patients causing a chain of responses in the body which leads to improved health without harmful side effects.


A pulsating magnetic field or PEMF is said to produce one main result: stimulating cell metabolism. 

Improving cellular function is thought to cause a chain of processes in the body that could lead to improvement of health without side effects.

The Magnawave Semi unit is one of the few high intensity pemf therapy machines that is approved for use on horses by the FEI.

PEMF to Reduce Pain


Electric pulse therapy has been used for many years for reducing pain. Many people have used a TENS unit that is designed to stimulate muscles and nerves. PEMF is another form of electric pulse therapy that can be used for the full body. Unlike the TENS electric pulse therapy which treats painful muscles with electrical impulses, PEMF therapy uses electromagnetic pulses to reduce inflammation, help repair damaged cells, create healthy new cells, stimulate the neurons and heal non-union fractures. PEMF electric pulse therapy is a natural drug-free alternative therapy with many applications.

A study published in The Journal of Rheumatology  showed one month of PEMF treatment improved pain and functional performance in arthritis patients.

40 years of research


The positive effects of PEMF therapy were well established by the mid-1900’s. PEMF therapy was used commercially in the mid-1970’s with a focus on cellular regeneration. PEMF therapy was used to reduce pain and in the healing of non-union bone fractures. NASA has tested the effects of PEMF therapy on bone loss and muscular degeneration encountered by astronauts on long space missions. 

In the NASA study it was concluded that: 






PEMF Magnetic Therapy has been used in the fields of Neurology, Physiology, and Psychology for over 40 years throughout Europe. PEMF magnetic therapy is now becoming popular in the United States.​

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy heals by transferring energy.


Benefits of PEMF Therapy

  • Supports healing of damaged and inflamed tissues

  •  Reduces pain, swelling, and inflammation

  •  Increases circulation and cellular levels of oxygen

  •  Aids general muscular and nervous systems health and function

  •  Accelerates repair of bones

  • Stimulates the body’s natural healing processes

  • Reduced pain and soreness

  • Speeds recovery time

  • Improved range of motion

  • Enhanced endurance

  • Bone mending

  • Prevents cellular breakdown during muscle stress

  • Stimulates energy production in the muscle



Scientifically speaking, PEMF therapy aids the body in a number of ways, such as:

  1. Blood Circulation: Loaded particles in the bloodstream seem to oscillate in rhythm with the PEMF frequency. This may reduce friction and flow resistance, especially in narrow capillaries. Blood circulation may improve and the diffusion rate for oxygen and carbon dioxide might increase.

  2. Oxygen Partial Pressure: Many PEMF therapy studies appear to demonstrate an increase in blood oxygen content. Cell membrane potential also seems to become regulated. Exhaustion caused by stress or chronic disease can reduce cell membrane potential (70 to 90 mV). When a cell reaches the zero level, it dies. Cells use 50% of their energy to maintain their optimum potential. Magnawaving, with its ion transport system may enable the selective movement of protons (H+ ions). H+ ions are then retargeted to the cell membrane, in turn the cell membrane becomes hyperpolarized then normalizes.

  3. Calcium Influx: Via the potentially increased concentration of H+ ions in the cell membrane, it has been noted that the PH value is said to be reduced near it. This may lead to the release of calcium from the protein layer of the cell membrane. This released calcium might flor into the cell core, triggering multiple metabolic reactions:

  • Macrophages: tissue cells functioning as protection against infection may become activated, strengthening the immune system.

  • Metabolism: as a byproduct of an activated metabolism, nitric oxide (potentially a vessel enlarger) may be produced.

  • Cytogenesis: structure, function and multiplication of the cells is stimulated.
