Pulsating magnetic field therapy (PEMF): Health effects, benefits and applications

What is vibrant magnetic field therapy (PEMF)?

Pulsating magnetic field therapy (PEMF) is a treatment that uses controlled pulses of electromagnetic energy to affect biological tissues. This therapy has been extensively studied for its effects on different biological systems, and different frequencies have been shown to have varied effects.

PEMF therapy works by sending electromagnetic pulses through the body, which stimulates the cells and increases the body's natural healing processes. This therapy can help improve circulation, reduce inflammation, relieve pain and accelerate tissue regeneration.

Health benefits at PEMF

  1. Pain relief: PEMF therapy can effectively reduce pain in many different pain conditions by modulating nerve activity and reducing inflammation.
  2. Inflammatory reduction: Reduction of inflammation and edema is one of the most documented effects of PEMF. This is especially useful for chronic inflammatory conditions such as arthritis.
  3. Improved blood circulation: PEMF therapy improves blood circulation by expanding blood vessels (vasodilatation), increasing the oxygen distribution in the body.
  4. Increased energy production: Increased production of ATP in the cell nucleus leads to higher energy levels and better cell metabolism.
  5. Natural circadian rhythm: Regular use of PEMF therapy can help regulate the body's natural circadian rhythm, leading to better sleep quality.
  6. Tissue regeneration: PEMF therapy promotes tissue regeneration by increasing the production of growth factors and stimulating stem cell production.
  7. Immune system: Stimulation and balancing the immune system is another important advantage of PEMF, which can contribute to better general health and resistance to diseases.
  8. Anti-aging: PEMF therapy has been shown to counteract cell-level aging by improving cell functions and reducing oxidative stress.

Pain relief

PEMF therapy can effectively reduce pain by modulating nerve activity and reducing inflammation. It has proven to be especially effective for the treatment of chronic pain, arthritis and back pain.

Improved blood circulation

By increasing blood flow through vasodilatation, PEMF therapy contributes to better oxygen supply and nutrient transport to the body's cells, which promotes healing and regeneration of tissue.

Reduction of inflammation

PEMF therapy modulates inflammatory roads and reduces the production of inflammatory cytokines. This helps to reduce swelling and inflammation of the body.

Increased energy production

PEMF therapy increases the production of adenosinrifosphate (ATP) in the cells, which is essential for cellular energy. This leads to increased energy levels and improved cell function.

Stimulation of the immune system

PEMF therapy can help strengthen and balance the immune system, making the body better equipped to fight infections and diseases.

Improved sleep quality

PEMF therapy helps regulate the circadian rhythm and promote deep, restorative sleep. This can help with sleep problems and improve general health and well -being.

Tissue regeneration and wound healing

PEMF therapy promotes angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels) and increases fibroblast activity, which is essential for tissue repair and wound healing.

Anti-aging effects

By improving cellular function and stimulating the production of endogenous antioxidants, PEMF therapy can help counteract cell-level aging.

Scientific effects of various PEMF frequencies

Extremely low-frequency PEMF (Elf) (3-500 Hz)

Effects on bacteria

  • Frequency range: 150-500 Hz
  • Effects: Elf PEMF can significantly reduce the growth rate of bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus. Optimal reduction in bacterial viability is observed at 300 Hz and 1.5 mt.
  • Mechanism: PEMF interferes with bacterial cell function and viability.

Cellular effects

  • Frequency range: 3-50 Hz
  • Effects: Elf PEMF affects cellular processes such as cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. The effects are frequency dependent, with some frequencies that promote cell growth and others that inhibit it.

Low frequency PEMF (1-1000 Hz)

Treatment of bone fracture

  • Frequency range: 15-30 Hz
  • Effects: Low frequency PEMF improves osteoblast activity and bone formation, and is widely used in clinical settings to promote bone healing.
  • Mechanism: PEMF increases calcium influks in bone cells, improving osteoblast proliferation and differentiation.

Pain relief

  • Frequency range: 50-100 Hz
  • Effects: Frequencies in this area are used for pain treatment, by modulating nerve activity and reducing pain perception.
  • Mechanism: PEMF affects the production of inflammatory cytokines and increases the release of endorphins.

Intermediate PEMF (1-100 kHz)

Tissue regeneration

  • Frequency range: 27.12 MHz
  • Effects: Intermediate frequencies are used for tissue regeneration and wound healing, by increasing blood flow and promoting tissue repair.
  • Mechanism: PEMF improves angiogenesis and fibroblast activity, which is essential for tissue repair.

Neurological effects

  • Frequency range: 1-10 khz
  • Effects: These frequencies affect nerve generation and have potential applications in the treatment of neurological conditions such as peripheral neuropathy.
  • Mechanism: PEMF promotes the growth of nerve fibers and improves nerve cell's viability.

High -frequency PEMF (100 kHz - 1 MHz)


  • Frequency range: Around 100 khz
  • Effects: High -frequency PEMF is examined for their potential in cancer treatment, by inducing apoptosis in cancer cells without affecting normal cells.
  • Mechanism: PEMF interferes with the membrane potentials of the cancer cells, leading to cell death.

Anti-inflammatory effects

  • Frequency range: 100-300 khz
  • Effects: These frequencies have anti-inflammatory effects, which can be useful in the treatment of inflammatory conditions.
  • Mechanism: PEMF modulates inflammatory roads and cytokin production.

Radio Frequent PEMF (1-300 MHz)

Thermal effects

  • Frequency range: Around 27.12 MHz
  • Effects: Used in diathermy to generate deep tissue heating, which helps with muscle relaxation, pain relief and improved joint mobility.
  • Mechanism: PEMF increases the tissue temperature, which improves blood flow and metabolic activity.

Non-thermal effects

  • Frequency range: 1-300 MHz (lower intensities)
  • Effects: Non-thermal effects include modulation of cell signal paths and the influence of gene expression.
  • Mechanism: PEMF affects cellular signaling without increasing tissue temperature.

General technical description of PEMF therapy systems

The PEMF therapy system uses electromagnetic induction to regulate the flow of ions in the body (blood vessels, tissues and cells). The system helps restore a normal metabolism and produces health -promoting effects typical of active life and exercise.

The system comes with a large body mat and a pillow for focused treatment of specific areas such as lower back, stomach, abdomen and joints. The applicators contain magnetic coils that form a magnetic field when they get pulsating current, which penetrates deep into the body's tissue.

Normally, the appliance should be used twice a day for eight minutes (applies to the cellvital system) to achieve a variety of positive effects. A treatment gives a long -term effect of up to eight hours, and improvement in metabolism and general regeneration of the cells usually occurs after only a few days of treatment.
