Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy

Pulsed Magnetism

1. What is pulsed magnetic field therapy? (PMFT)

All the cells of the body have a weak, natural electric current flowing through them. The currents are caused by electrically charged particles in the cells called ions. Ions affect the metabolism, or the work of the cell. PMFT is a method of applying a magnetic field to the cell, which sends a weak electrical signal, influencing the interaction of the ions, and the flow of nutrients in the cell. Enhanced circulation and nutrient exchange can speed the healing process and reduce down time.

2. What are the benefits?

Pulse Magnetic Therapy aids the cells in creating an optimum environment in which the body can begin to heal itself. Magnetism is a wholly natural event. It is neither magic nor medicine. It allows body cells to exist at their best level. As a result, a person's energy level will increase and he/she will sleep more restfully. In the treatment of sprains, strains, broken bones, burns and cuts, not only does magnetic therapy aid in recovery but it quickly allows these conditions to heal better, quicker and with less scar tissue and better symmetry.

In injuries, magnetic treatment has proven to decrease healing time by half or more. In the treatment of chronic conditions such as some forms of arthritis, degenerative joint conditions, diabetic ulcers and cancer, magnetic field therapy has shown dramatic results in aiding the reduction or reversal of the condition.

• Pulsing Magnetic therapy penetrates completely through the joints and muscles
• Acceleration of blood circulation
• Increased oxygen supply
• Soothing and relaxing of sore muscles
• Treatment of tendons & ligaments
• Pain relief
• General relaxation
• Much shorter lay-up time

Pulsing Electro Magnetic Fields influence cell behavior by inducing electrical changes around and within the cell. Improved blood supply increases the oxygen pressure, activating and regenerating cells thereby promoting collagen growth. Improved calcium transport increases absorption of calcium in bones and improves the quality of cartilage in joints.

There are many scientific studies on the degree of effectiveness of Pulsing Electro Magnetic Fields with regards to improvement in a variety of health issues. It has been found that disturbances in blood circulation and in metabolism play a key role in the development of diseases. Application of pulsing electromagnetic energy is based on more than 30 years of worldwide research carried out by renowned scientists. Our advanced PMF technology generates time variable, low frequency pulsed magnetic fields, programmed to address specific health issues delivered to the entire body, and is far superior to other pulsed signal magnetic field therapy technologies.

3. Who should use it?

Humans, and animals, whether healthy or not so healthy, all stand to benefit from treatments with Pulsed Magnetic Field, which has been found to be highly effective in curing or alleviating conditions such as bone fractures, migraine headaches, insomnia and depression. Magnetic Field therapy is a method that penetrates the whole body and supports every organ without chemical side effects.

4. What is the difference between permanent magnets and pulsed magnets?

When a magnetic field changes or pulses, it has the ability to induce a weak electrical charge into the cells of the body which is beneficial to the cells, giving them the energy they need to repair and reproduce (HEAL). This is not possible with a permanent magnet unless the magnet is moving in relation to the cells being exposed for example when the magnet is being applied or removed. Permanent magnets react only on the blood flowing past them; pulsed magnetic fields react on all living cells within the magnetic field.

A permanent magnet can only give one polarity to a cell; the pulsed magnet utilizes unique saw tooth impulses with a balance of north and south polarities, which all cells require. A 30-minute session will give better results than having magnets taped to your body all day, and sleeping on a ridged mattress and pillow filled with magnets at night.

5. Are there any possible contraindications?

Yes. Although there have been no reports of problems arising, people with electronic implants I.E. pacemakers, defibrillators etc. should consult with their doctor before using and keep applicators away from implants. Although no evidence exists of PM being harmful, pregnant women should also consult their physician.

6. Explaining pulsating magnetic field therapy.

Therapy with Pulsating Magnetic Fields (PMF) is a relatively new form of physical therapy. It is not a miracle, but rather a physical modality that has proven effective for therapeutic purposes.

PMF is a very efficient and simple therapy method. By influencing the body either generally or locally with a magnetic field packed in impulse bundles. Pulsating Magnetic Therapy is being used in the medical field for therapeutic purposes.
Pulsing Magnetic Fields cannot be absorbed, so it is difficult to produce field-free spaces when magnetic fields strike a material. We often differentiate between paramagnetic substances, in which a bundling or a concentration of magnetic field lines occurs, the diamagnetic substances, in which a decentralization of the field lines result.

Human and animal organisms consist of a large number of cells which function electrically. If there is no electrical potential left in the cell, it is no longer viable. These cells have a basic (or rest) potential that is necessary for normal cellular metabolism.

Field experience, has demonstrated that Pulsating Magnetic Fields can aid in the reduction of swelling, while increasing collagen integrity by stimulating tissue repair, thereby making it an excellent adjunct to skin rejuvenation and body shaping therapies.
