What is PEMF?

PEMF therapy, short for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy, is a non-invasive, drug-free, and natural treatment. It involves using electromagnetic fields to stimulate the body's natural processes, offering a wide range of positive benefits. These electromagnetic fields mimic the Earth's natural magnetic field and can be generated by devices like the CELLER8 or one of our mats.

What is PEMF Used For?

PEMF therapy offers a variety of benefits for the body by creating an optimal environment for healing. Below, we'll delve into how PEMF can help in different areas, including studies and more!
  • Reduce Pain

    The most common use for PEMF worldwide is to reduce pain, and it achieves this through various ways. Many studies have demonstrated its effectiveness in lowering pain scores when used consistently. One significant way PEMF alleviates pain is by reducing inflammation, a common factor in conditions like arthritis and injury. We delve deeper into this in the following section. By increasing circulation with PEMF, this can increase the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to tissues. One way this is done is by unstacking blood cells, which we cover below. Additionally, PEMF can modulate nerve activity, regulating the transmission of pain signals along nerve fibers and diminishing the perception of pain. These are just a few of the ways PEMF contributes to pain reduction.

  • Reduce Inflammation

    PEMF therapy reduces inflammation through various mechanisms, one of which involves decreasing the levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which are signaling molecules key in initiating inflammatory responses in the body. Excessive levels of these cytokines can contribute to various inflammatory diseases, including autoimmune disorders, chronic conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease, among others.


    A study utilizing 15 gauss PEMFs at 75 Hz observed an increase in A2A (adenosine receptors) and ARs (androgens) within the body. This increase is associated with a notable inhibition of the pro-inflammatory signaling pathway NF-kB, resulting in a decrease in both the synthesis and activation of pro-inflammatory cytokines.

  • Improve Sleep

    One of the first things people notice when they use PEMF is that their sleep improves, and this is due to the regulation of circadian rhythms, more commonly known as your body's internal clock, and regulation of melatonin, a hormone that plays a crucial role in regulating sleep-wake cycles. 


    Our brains naturally oscillate at different frequencies throughout the day, corresponding to different states of consciousness. For instance, higher frequencies, such as beta waves (12-30 Hz), are associated with alertness and active concentration, making them ideal for the morning when we need to be awake and focused. On the other hand, lower frequencies, such as alpha waves (8-10 Hz), are indicative of relaxed and calm states, making them perfect for the evening when we're winding down for sleep. By exposing the brain to these specific frequencies, PEMF helps synchronize our brainwaves with the natural rhythm of the day, promoting a smoother transition between wakefulness and sleep. This is also why CELLER8 runs its morning and evening programs at these frequencies.

  • Total Relaxation

    Many people say they experience a feeling of complete relaxation during and after PEMF sessions, and this is due to a wide range of effects PEMF has on the body, including alleviating muscle tension, its effects on the nervous system, and by stimulating the vagus nerve.


    The vagus nerve acts like a superhighway connecting your brain to your body. When the vagus nerve is activated by PEMF therapy, it sends signals to your brain to switch off the stress response and turn on the relaxation response. This means your heart rate slows down, your breathing becomes deeper and more regular, and your body enters a state of peaceful relaxation.

  • Improved Energy Levels

    One of the most significant applications of PEMFs is enhancing the utilization and production of ATP, thereby boosting energy levels in the body's tissues. You may have heard the saying that the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell, and that's because they are major generators of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a key molecule in energy storage and transfer in living organisms.


    To understand how this works, we first need to grasp ATP hydrolysis, the process by which ATP is broken down into ADP (adenosine diphosphate) to release energy. The enzyme responsible for this task is ATPase, which can be found in mitochondria.


    When ATPase was exposed to 60 Hz PEMF and different intensities of 3 gauss and 5 gauss this enhanced the hydrolysis activity, whereas 1 gauss exposure caused no significant changes. So, in addition to helping with ATP synthesis, PEMFs increase the production of energy from the ATP itself, but only if the stimulation is above a specific intensity threshold.

  • Health & Wellness

    As mentioned earlier, PEMF therapy creates a favourable healing environment in the body, offering a range of benefits that can significantly impact overall health and wellness. By improving cell function, reducing inflammation, and promoting relaxation, PEMF prepares the body to tackle various health issues. Better blood flow and oxygen supply help deliver nutrients to tissues and flush out toxins, aiding in detoxification. This holistic healing approach not only targets specific ailments but also positively affects sleep, stress levels, immune function, pain relief, and vitality. By supporting the body's natural healing processes, PEMF therapy can boost energy, lift mood, and enhance well-being, leading to a healthier and more vibrant life.

PEMF's Effect On Blood Cells

A common occurrence in people as they age and if they develop chronic inflammatory conditions, chronic illnesses, certain blood disorders, among other conditions, is a formation within the blood known as Rouleaux, where blood cells stack like a stack of coins. The Rouleaux effect on blood cells can have a list of negative health outcomes such as decreased oxygen delivery, potentially leading to hypoxia, poor blood circulation, increased blood viscosity, impaired immune response, and more.


Another positive effect of PEMF is unstacking red blood cells, in turn, reversing the Rouleaux effect on the blood. This unstacking can be seen through a microscope instantly, and these effects tend to last for hours or even days after a session.


Below is a real-life example of the effect CELLER8 had on blood cells after just one session. In the before image, we see an image of a healthy man in his 60s before any PEMF treatment. You can observe some Rouleaux stacking and non-roundness in some cells, which will be amplified significantly further in someone with chronic illness. In the after image, we see the same person's blood; the cells are no longer clumped together. Additionally, the cells exhibit a very healthy balance of positive and negative ions around them, as evidenced by the rounded shape of the cells.

Understanding PEMF Specifications

Application

When it comes to PEMF, there are two main ways in which it can be applied: via a localized applicator like the CELLER8 or via a mat, like our full-body, travel, and mini mats. 


Localized devices: If you are looking to target PEMFs to a specific area of the body, a localized device is an excellent option. These applicators come in various forms that allow for precise treatment. They are particularly suitable for on-the-go use, as they can typically be strapped to any part of the body with a strap, which is usually included.


Full-body mats: As a standard recommendation, we suggest using a full-body mat as it provides a more comprehensive treatment of PEMFs. This method ensures that PEMFs affect all cells in the body rather than just targeting a specific area.


We have combined the best of both worlds with our full-body mat package, so you can get a full-body treatment with PEMF while also intensifying it in a localized area. This combination can also be used to create a sandwich effect.

Intensity

Intensity is the strength of the magnetic field produced by a PEMF therapy device; it is usually measured in Gauss, but you may also see μT (1 microtesla is equal to 0.01 gauss), mT (1 millitesla is equal to 10 gauss), or T (1 tesla is equal to 10,000 gauss). For perspective, the Earth has an average intensity of 0.5 gauss, and this is what you get from grounding/earthing barefoot.


The CELLER8 has an adjustable intensity of 1 – 100 Gauss, and our full-body mat has 1-50 Gauss (or up to 600 gauss stacked intensity after adding all 12 coils together).

Frequency

Electromagnetic fields are emitted at various speeds measured per second known as the frequency which is measured in Hz. Unlike intensity, the frequency has less of an impact on the healing side of the therapy it is mainly used to promote different brain waves states, such as sleep, mediation, focus and so on. These brain wave states fall into 5 categories delta, theta, alpha, beta and gamma.  


We have made accessing each one of these ranges easily accessible with our four preset programs. To read more about CELLER8's programs and how they can be used, click here. CELLER8 also has a custom mode which lets you pick any frequency from 1 to 100 Hz.

Polarity

Polarity refers to the direction in which the magnetic field is traveling, which can be either towards the North or South. Simply put, the magnetic field is emitted from one side of a mat or localized applicator, forms a circle, and returns to the other side.


On the CELLER8 we have given you the option to choose either North or South.

Waveform

Waveform this is simply just the actual physical shape of the wave it’s self. Common PEMF waveforms include sinusoidal, square, sawtooth, and triangular waves.


CELLER8 features a square wave due to customer feedback and results from years of selling PEMF devices and which waveform we felt was most effective and prompted the quickest results. As well as our own research we committed to the square wave due to the years of previous research and scientific studies using this specific waveform including the studies completed by NASA, who also use a square waveform with great effect.

PEMF FAQ

Who shouldn’t use PEMFs?

How does P(EMF's) differ to potentially harmful EMF's? 

The easiest way to describe the difference between therapeutic P(EMF’s) and potentially harmful EMF’s is to look at the range they use. A good PEMF device will have a range between 1Hz – 100Hz, which are defined as within the therapeutic range. Some PEMF devices go up to 1,000Hz, which is still OK and has shown to be effective for Depression according to the FDA, but I wouldn’t go higher that those frequencies when using PEMF’s. If you compare this to the phones, we use against our heads now on 5GHz which is actually 5,000,000,000Hz (5 billion Hz). So, this gives you some idea of how far apart these frequencies are.


At 5GHz, studies have shown how these frequencies are absorbed by the body and they vibrate and heat our cells. Effectively they are cooking us from the inside. If you use your phone against your head for 20-30 minutes, scans will show how the brain is heated during that time by those frequencies. Over time these cells will cool and recover but it’s still scary stuff, especially for those who use phones or Bluetooth headsets for a prolonged time each day.


P(EMF’s) within the therapeutic ranges (1-100Hz) are not even absorbed by the body and actually just pass right through without any resistance. They do not vibrate cells or heat them up but actually encourage the cells to form healthy new ones and push waste material out of the current cells in our bodies and the reason we tell people to drink water often in order to detox those waste materials after using PEMF’s. The same way our body’s get rid of nasties if you went out for a run or got a deep tissue massage.


The earth’s natural magnetic field resonates at 7.8Hz so, we are surrounded by this frequency in nature, therefore PEMF’s within the therapeutic range are seen as much more natural frequencies than those, some of our household items use and even some other therapeutic devices that rely on heating tissues within the body. PEMF’s are the best way to bring natural frequencies back into our homes and to our bodies to create the optimal environment to heal and regenerate.

Do PEMFs effect brain function? 

Absolutely, PEMFs are used to influence brain function and specifically, the CELLER8 programs are designed around the brain frequencies in the programs. The ‘Morning’ program uses BETA (12-30Hz) frequencies, to give us energy and encourage the brain to work at optimum frequencies for the early part of the day or for focus. The ‘Evening’ program uses ALPHA (8-10Hz) frequencies and allows us to relax and recover at the later part of the day and the ‘Night’ program uses DELTA (0-4Hz) frequencies. In ‘Night’ mode we recommend using the CELLER8 without the full body mat and just placing it close to your head, by the pillow or on the bedside table for example to encourage the brain to stay in the DELTA frequencies throughout sleep. As a bonus program the ‘Meditation’ mode runs frequencies within the THETA (4-8Hz) to assist us to really fall into a meditative state of mind. 

Is PEMF therapy FDA approved?

PEMF therapy is FDA approved for certain conditions (not all are listed below) and a short timeline of FDA approval is as follows:
