There is an opportunity to provide an elevated level of therapy when combining bodywork sessions with PEMF. Since PEMF is a passive, it is very well received by all patients and can be an additional modality to aid achieving therapeutic goals faster, and ultimately resolve underlying issues. It's a great way to introduce medical technology and modernize the healing practice. In this modern day and age, with all of the affronts we have on our health from the environment, all our cells need a little something extra to cope. Bring on the 21st century of wellness! PEMF is a relatively new technology and studies are being done all the time to highlight PEMF stimulation's efficacy for circulatory improvement, pain management, neural health, and depression symptoms, scar and tissue healing. So many benefits to this amazing way to optimize cellular health. Healthy cells = no symptoms = optimal health!
Many PEMF recipients report benefits including a better night's sleep, a feeling of being recharged, improved digestion and reduced pain and that is precisely in line with the desired effects of any healing modality. By introducing a mild electrical magnetic current to the cells, the release of pain and inflammatory mediators are slowed or even stopped, increases blood flow of the cells, and re-establishes normal cell interaction. With reduced inflammation, pain decreases, energy increases, and faster tissue healing occurs. The microcirculation in the peripheral vessels increases, aiding all types of bodywork additionally being performed.
Massage and myofascial therapy is well known for resolving muscular issues. During a massage session, the PEMF therapy helps to increase the effects of the practitioner's treatment. Myofascial releases will be integrated in a more holistic way, due to the cellular membrane stimulation that PEMF provides. Fresh nutrients can more easily flow to problem areas, and general wellness is achieved at a faster rate. The stimulation provides a fantastic compliment to most any additional therapeutic modality. Patients may feel some tingling sensations in their hands and feet and the overall effect is relaxing.
Reflexology is a system of massage used to relieve tension and treat illness, based on the theory that there are reflex points on the feet, hands, and head linked to every part of the body. PEMF helps patients to connect to their bodies at a deeper level, helping integrate the reflex points even better than manual stimulation alone. Patients feel more relief at the end of the session, and their cells are further along the path to becoming healthy. The passive cellular stimulation helps to bring fresh nutrients and blood flow to the injured or sub optimally functioning area. The cellular stimulation also helps to move and process any lactic acid buildup in the muscles, aiding muscle recovery and relieving pain. Working with elderly patients or those who are concerned with their bone density, independent studies have shown that PEMF helps to stimulate bone density and promote bone and cartilage regeneration. NASA uses PEMF therapy to prevent bone and muscle loss in astronauts working at zero gravity. Needless to say that even us non-astronauts need some help maintaining muscle and bone health in our everyday routines.
Since the desired effects of the PEMF therapy take from 8-24 minutes, the practitioner can safely fit in a whole PEMF session in one treatment. Healing is accelerated through optimizing cellular membrane functioning. An awesome thing about combining PEMF with treatments, is that the bodywork practitioner has the added bonus of working in an electromagnetic field, since the range of the Omnium1 full body mat is 3 feet high. The practitioner also receives a cellular recharge, a true win-win for all.
If you are an RMT or any practitioner of bodywork, reflexology or breathwork, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy is a great addition to any practice that requires the client or patient to be laying on a flat surface, or a massage table. It is a great addition to healing modalities of all kinds, providing a bonus source of cellular wellness and integration when used in tandem with healing work. The mat can even be tucked under the cushions of a couch, suitable for in office use in therapy as well, even in the waiting room! Acupuncture, Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, Massage Therapy, Reflexology, even cosmetic procedures such as microblading and filler injections are all very well suited for combined PEMF therapy. If you already own a PEMF device, ask your practitioner if you can bring your mat to your next session!
Are you a practitioner yourself? Why not rent a PEMF system for a trial period? Introduce the Omnium1 2.0 or the iMRS Prime to your clients? Enhance your practice and add another aspect of value to your business. Your clients will love it! And so will you!
