What is PEMF therapy?
Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field therapy, also known as PEMF, is a drug-free, non-invasive, pain-relief alternative treatment, which also promotes accelerated healing for ailments and injuries. In addition, PEMF therapy improves sleep, mental focus, and the body’s overall performance by helping the energy output and regeneration of the body’s cells.
How does PEMF therapy work?
Without an electromagnetic exchange between cells, nothing happens in the body. Human chemistry is controlled by natural electromagnetic energy. The cells are impaired when this electromagnetic energy is disrupted (for instance, from a bad diet, a small bruise to an injury, or merely from getting older). The body is not healthy if the cells are not healthy.
When a complementary electromagnetic field is introduced into the body, healthy electromagnetic exchanges can be reestablished. This is the reason why PEMFs are considered to be extremely useful; they are capable of stimulating all levels of the body. When applied externally, the PEMF therapy completely penetrates the body and effects individual cells, organs, tissues, and thereby the entire body.
What types of conditions can PEMF therapy treat?
Since the cellular reaction takes place in everybody, magnetic fields are not condition specific. As a result, PEMF therapy can be used to assist with the majority of conditions. In fact, clinical studies have demonstrated that PEMFs are capable of:
- Increasing circulation
- Decreasing inflammation
- Accelerating bone healing
- Enhancing muscle function
- Reducing the effects of stress
- Improving blood oxygenation, and much more

At the Center for Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine, we incorporate PEMF therapy into all our treatments and our therapy beds all include PEMF mats. This has led to accelerated improvements in pain management, stress reduction, improved sleep and relaxation, and reduced inflammation.
Dr. Bebe Chianni Lin would be happy to further discuss the benefits of PEMF therapy and how it has become an important part of her integrative medicine practice.
