PEMF stands for Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field, which has been used for decades and provides positive health-promoting results. PEMF therapy offers beneficial bioeffects including improved sleep, cognitive function, stress, and anxiety reduction, improves mood, enhances the body’s self-healing abilities, promotes cellular health, and reduces pain associated with inflammation and arthritis. It has also been used by many professional athletes to enhance their athletic performance.
Susan Ray LMFT, psychotherapist of Windward Therapy, LLC says that once she found out about PEMF therapy from a friend who had been using it for 15 years, she borrowed the device from him to help with joint and tendon pain following recent hamstring reattachment surgery. She noticed immediate results in her sleep, energy level, and circulation, and she thought,” I need to incorporate this into my practice!” She started her private practice 12 years ago after working 20 years in private non-profit agencies in Hawaii. She specializes in helping people suffering from all degrees of depression, insomnia, and anxiety. She also does a large amount of couple and family therapy. Her clients, she says, like all of us, also have their unique physical concerns such as neck pain, headaches, chronic PMS, symptoms of menopause, arthritis, low energy, and poor circulation. There have even been tests on PEMF helping people diagnosed with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease improve their memory.
The procedure is simple. The device is basically a pillow with magnets, and machinery inside that submit the electromagnetic pulses to the body. Every organ in the body produces its own bio-electromagnetic frequencies. Over the years, our exposure to harmful electromagnetic fields has increased (from a cell phones, TVs, cell towers, and microwaves), and our connection with the natural magnetic energy or the Earth has decreased. PEMF therapy helps to provide the beneficial electromagnetic fields that we are missing on a cellular level and returns our pulse to the natural one of the earth. This results in the accelerated repair of bone and soft tissue, cellular detoxification, improved intake of nutrients, reduction in platelet adhesion, and the ability to regenerate healthy cells. PEMF is not intended to diagnose, treat or cure or prevent any disease or condition, but is a wellness device that is intended to support and maintain health and wellness and is exempt from FDA approval. This would be a supplement to what Windward Therapy already provides.
