It is more common to have anxiety now than ever before. It is a word that comes up almost daily in our conversations surrounding life. Even if we do not admit it externally, we can admit to ourselves that we all get a bit anxious from time to time. Now especially, the pandemic has brought an extra layer of low-grade anxiety to our lives.
The human body and mind are overly sensitive to all outside influences and internal emotions. We can make ourselves sick with worry, it is a colloquialism for a reason! When we do not have healthy coping mechanisms for the ups and downs of life, we can make choices that lead us astray. These poor choices contribute to negative and self sabotaging cycles we can all relate to. Life can be messy! When our thoughts are a mess, it leads to even more anxiety if we do not take specific actions that bring us back into an optimal range of wellness. A little resourceful and resilient thinking and good habits go a long way for both the mind and body. We cannot separate the mind from the body. Mental health is physical health!
We feel it in our bodies most, this low-grade stress that an anxious mind cause. Tense shoulders, clenching jaws, restless legs, headaches…the list can go on and on. Everyone experiences anxiety a little differently, we all have different things that can trigger it. It is important to learn about yourself and what your personal needs and triggers are, so you can better manage your awareness around them. Always remember that the way you are feeling affects those around you too! The people around you are sensitive to your anxiety, even if they themselves do not admit it, we can often feel when something is “off” with a person that we love.
Adults and kids both suffer from anxious behavior. Anxiety can express itself differently in each age group, and so we must be on the lookout and check in with ourselves and each other to notice our feelings. A good way of doing that is rating our feelings of peace and ease versus our feelings of worry and anxiety. How peaceful do you feel today? How anxious do you feel today? It is helpful to think about a score on a scale of 1-10: quantifying ambiguous feelings like anxiety helps make them feel more tangible. Comparing our feelings of peace brings our minds closer to our goal of moving through life lightly and peacefully, come what may. This scaling system makes it much easier to see how quickly you can make progress to move through your anxiety and into a state of peacefulness.
Anxiety is a silent and deceptive beast; it lays dormant whilst we think we are doing well. It can rear its ugly head by making us think of the past or the future. It builds without much notice and spills over in our thoughts, mostly it feels negative and self defeating. Throwing pity-parties is an example and living in the clouds. Unhealthy coping mechanisms like obsessive thinking, excessive eating, drinking, or smoking, are a good indicator of an anxious mind. Anxiety keeps you out of the present moment, and distracts us from our actual realities, keeping us from getting important things done.
We can all suffer from avoidant behavior, being too worried about the commitments we have made, leading us to less virtuous and avoidant behavior. From skipping practice, chats with friends to skipping healthy meals and self care, anxiety creates a whirlwind for our daily life.
A really good tool to use for anxiety is mindfulness. But how do we stay mindful of the present moment? Everyone is a little different, but we all share the same struggles internally when we are anxious. A good way of attaining a more peaceful state is simply lying down. Grounding is an old school technique used where we can lay on the bare earth to help us offload our anxiety onto the earth. It can be a little problematic and impractical, and too quirky in our everyday lives to do that. People with various health conditions and movement impairments may not even be able to. Good thing we live in the modern world! A great tool to use is a low intensity PEMF system that mimics the earth's electromagnetic field. We can bring nature back into our homes in many ways. Laying on The Omnium 1 is a super easy way of bringing us back into the earth's magnetic field, and we do not have to risk getting any dirt on our clothes! Even renting the mat to try it out is a great idea. Anxiety is hard to deal with and when we need to take care of our thoughts in unconventional and modern ways. Adding new tools for wellness and routines to help ourselves get back on track in our ever-changing world is not only important but also necessary.
As a PEMF Practitioner I have worked with many clients with Anxiety disorders from mild to severe. With consistent sessions (3/week), these clients reported improvements through a rating scale done before and after their sessions. They were asked to rate their anxiety from 1-10, 10 being the most anxious. Almost every client reported improvement within the first three sessions. The others reported improvement by the second week. These improvements on the scale were seen as a decrease in anxious feelings by an average of 2-5 points, always with at least some change from the before to the after-session rating. To date, no clients have reported zero change after two weeks of sessions. The biggest shift has been for the clients who purchased an Omnium1 or iMRS for home use and increased their sessions up to 2/day. The ratings shared post purchase were and are often a reduction to 3 out of 10, right down to a 0 out of 10. These home users were giving this feedback between 1-3 months after using their Omnium1 or iMRS at home at least 2/day.
In Relation to the Use of the Omnium1 and the iMRS Prime Systems
WHAT? PEMF Therapy is a frequency-based technology that supports and activates the natural and healthy biological process in the body. It uses nature-based frequencies that we resonate with to optimize cell function, replenish cellular energy, initiate healing, and regeneration, and balance the body systems. It is a technology that can improve our quality of life.
WHY? For millions of years, we have been exposed to frequencies emitted from the earth’s magnetic field and the schumann resonance, and this energetic connection is essential to our health. Electromagnetism is just as vital as food, water, light, and air. Our bodies are run on energy and our internal systems are initiated and supported by the frequencies we encounter in our natural environment. Unfortunately, through the modernization of civilization and the changes we have made to the environment, we have reduced exposure to the natural frequencies. Not only have we insulated ourselves with paved roads and concrete buildings, but we have created technology that has interrupted and disrupted the balance of our natural environment.
HOW? By exposing the cells to weak pulsating electromagnetic frequencies, we can improve cellular metabolism and ion transfer through the cell membrane wall. This cellular optimization allows the body the energy capacity it needs to focus on healing and regeneration. The frequency range provided can stimulate various positive biological processes including but not limited to reducing pain and inflammation and increasing circulation. The full body mat emits the biological range of frequencies from .5-28Hz by the triple sawtooth wave, in smaller bundles determined by the Chinese organ clock. This means that the full body mat stimulates and supports different processes/organs through out the day based on when those biological process are most active. This also helps restore the body’s natural circadian rhythm. If the clock is set correctly, the system intelligently knows the bundle to offer.
Morning (early-10) 12-28Hz
Noon (10-3pm) 8-12Hz
Evening (3-8pm) 4-8Hz
Night (8-late) .5-4Hz
The waveform changes polarity every 2 mins and delivers the frequencies though out the body by way of cellular resonance, resonance is key in stimulating change.
WHO? PEMF is for everyone from pediatric to geriatric. Though most people wait to find solutions until their quality of life has declined, PEMF can be used preventatively too. Our systems are safe for babies 2 weeks old and up and have no negative side effects. People are using PEMF therapy to improve their energy & sleep, reduce pain and inflammation, increase circulation, and to manage the symptoms associated with many chronic conditions from arthritis to anxiety, Diabetes to Multiple Sclerosis.
WHEN? Ideally everyday! The full body mat should be used at least twice a day, book ending your day is recommended, so morning and later in the day or evening. The full body mat should be used for a minimum of 8 mins and a maximum of 24 mins per session (after 24 mins on the full body cells are fully charged) We always suggest a minimum of 12 mins to our clients, but the bigger benefits come from longer than 8mins always. The pad applicator and the spot applicator can be used as often as you like and for longer sessions as they are specific to the area being exposed.

All athletes, from weekend runners to yoga experts, physical labourers to Olympic gold medalists, are hard on their bodies. To be able to maintain a high level of activity, maximize performance and prevent injury, all body systems need to be functioning optimally.
Magnetic resonance stimulation uses weak pulsing magnetic fields to optimize cell functions through increased ion transfer.
The Omnium1 PEMF system allows muscles to work harder, longer, and recover faster. For the competitive athlete this means, a stronger finish to a race, and shorter rest periods between games and practices. For the casual exerciser this means less muscle soreness after the dreaded “leg day”. By achieving and maintaining optimal cell functions with daily us of an Omnium1 PEMF system, a healthier environment is created within the body. Athletes who follow a daily PEMF protocol have more to give on game day and are less likely to succumb to injury.
What are the basic Physiological Responses from Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy?
Using a magnetic therapy system before physical activity has many real benefits for the athlete. PEMFs stimulate a process called myosin phosphorylation, which is the process of energy production in the muscle. Phosphorylation produces ATP, which is essential for cellular energy. ATP depletion, which happens with strenuous activity, causes muscles to weaken and potentially spasm. Rest naturally restores ATP, assuming the body is healthy enough to replenish it. PEMFs restore ATP by stimulating the myosin phosphorylation process. In fact, according to Dr William Pawluk MD, through an increased motion of ions and electrolytes, magnetic fields can help cells increase their energy by up to 500%.
Magnetic fields also increase the uptake of oxygen into the muscle. Research show that with the aid of the PEMF’s cells are able to better utilize the available oxygen, increasing endurance. Magnetic therapies also increase circulation, further helping tissues get the nutrition and oxygen they need, while expelling the waste they produce.
Using a magnetic therapy system after strenuous activity can both greatly diminish soreness and reduce painful muscle spasms and cramping. The body has a somewhat limited repertoire of reacting to damage, injury, or illness.
Training and workouts, even informal athletic activity like yard work, often cause muscle soreness from the buildup of lactic acid and breakdown of tissues.
All injuries produce swelling in the tissues, as does exercise itself. Swelling delays the ability of the tissues to be nourished with oxygen and nutrients. This is why you see athletes frequently being treated with ice packs. Ice packs reduce superficial swelling, but swelling or bruising deep in a muscle will not respond as well to ice. Conversely, PEMFs penetrate tissues deeply without risk to the superficial tissues. The PEMFs reduce swelling and speed removal of the blood in a bruise, leading to faster recovery and return to activity, competition or training.
From this, we can see that all athletes, competitive or otherwise, should be using daily PEMF treatments for preventative reasons and for overall health maintenance. In addition, the treatment of any injuries with PEMF’s accelerates even subtle healing, allowing the athlete to be healthier, stronger and perform better.
The effects of Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy are becoming increasingly apparent, particularly in professional high performance sports. Because of the exertion of daily endurance training, top-athletes are far more sensitive. Unlike the average person, however, they are aware of the smallest changes in their bodies. Today, many world champions and Olympic medalists from a variety of sports rely on PEMF Therapy for medical and physiotherapeutic treatments. To legally optimize endurance, they count predominantly on the natural effects of PEMF therapy. However, PEMF therapy is not limited to these athletes as leisure and amateur sports people also benefit from its positive effects.
