There are many ways to practice self-care. Some individuals prefer to use saunas or sensory deprivation floats. Others prefer to use cold plunges. But what about PEMF therapy?
PEMF therapy is a form of alternative wellness that is used to improve circulation. Modern research has shown impressive results on how this form of physical therapy can be used. But how does it work? What does it mean when we refer to “improved circulation”? These are all great questions that many new to PEMF therapy have and Float Coppell is happy to help answer them.
What is PEMF Therapy
PEMF therapy is an easier way to say Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy. This is a unique form of physical therapy that targets cells using magnetic fields to help restore and rejuvenate. When you take a closer look at this form of alternative wellness, it is clear that the science does not lie.
According to research on the use of PEMF therapy in the management of musculoskeletal pain, “Magnetic field therapy was applied to promote bone healing, treat osteoarthritis and inflammatory diseases of the musculoskeletal system, alleviate pain, enhance healing of ulcers and reduce spasticity and, also, extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic fields in the pico tesla and milli tesla ranges are aimed at improving neurotransmission and correcting local immune pathology, respectively.”
Modern research has shown how useful PEMF therapy can be when used correctly. Next, let’s take a look at one of the most popular ways that individuals from all walks of life use PEMF therapy.
How PEMF Improves Circulation
One of the most popular reasons for using PEMF therapy is circulation improvement. The magnetic fields can penetrate the muscle in a non-invasive way. Studies surrounding the practice have shown how PEMF therapy can benefit individuals with circulation-related ailments.
According to the Journal of Clinical Hypertension, a 2020 study found that PEMF therapy improved vascular function and blood pressure in hypertensive individuals. The results of the study indicated that “PEMF therapy can be a potential non‐pharmacological and non‐invasive strategy to manage vascular function and BP in cohorts with peripheral vascular disease as well as hypertension. However, since the optimal strength, frequency, and duration of electromagnetic field emittance have not been determined, therapeutic benefits may vary based on those variables.”
Since vascular function and blood pressure both impact overall blood circulation, it can be concluded that PEMF therapy holds the potential to improve circulation. However, it is advisable for individuals with pre-existing conditions and on prescription medication to talk with their physicians before incorporating PEMF therapy into their routine.
