What To Expect
Learn more about the PEMF experience
How does PEMF feel?
This depends on your overall state of health, your age, and the level of intensity you choose. In many people, a PEMF field produces a feeling of warmth, especially in affected areas when using the pad or probe applicators. Among the sensations most people first notice are either deep relaxation or feeling energized.
Getting this balance right (you wouldn’t want to get energised at bed time unless you want to stay awake!), and delivering results at a speed and power that match your state of health, is the main challenge in your early period of using the Life Mat. Fortunately, we can draw on much experience to help you select settings, and design a treatment program that suits you and any other family member who wants to use the system.
How soon can I expect to see results?
Most people notice two things quite quickly: more energy, and better sleep. However, your response will depend totally on your age and overall health, and the type, stage, duration and response level of any health challenges you may have. If you’ve had a health condition for 10 years, it may take more than a few weeks for your body to respond.
On the other hand, when PEMF is applied to a fresh injury or acute stage of an existing condition, a reduction in pain and increase in mobility is sometimes almost immediate. How often you use the Life Mat, and at what intensities, will also have a major impact on what results you see, although it’s wise to be cautious about this during the first week or so of treatment.
What actually happens in the body during a PEMF session?
Bathed in a PEMF field, the cell membranes become more energised, with a better balance between positive and negative ions. Greater cell membrane potential means better absorption of nutrients and oxygen, and better elimination of wastes. Blood circulation increases as the vessels dilate and as red blood cells repel each other more strongly, so the oxygen content of the blood increases.
Calcium is also released from the protein layer of the cell membranes, and this sets off many reactions, including greater immune system activity. Under the influence of PEMF (and even more so if the Life Mat’s Sound and Light, and Heart Rate Variability options are used) the autonomic nervous system moves from stressed sympathetic mode towards relaxed parasympathetic mode, and is then better able to release the many neuro-transmitters required for adequate tissue repair and health maintenance. Many of these effects continue for several hours after treatment, which is especially important during sleep, when cellular repairs are at their peak.
What results can I expect?
Depending on your state of health, fitness, stress or fatigue, PEMF technology has been shown to offer a wide range of benefits, including:
- Better blood circulation and oxygen utilisation
- Increased metabolism and energy levels
- Improved immune response, helping to prevent infection and disease
- Reduced pain and inflammation
- Greater psychological well being in case of stress, depression and anxiety
- Deeper relaxation and stress reduction
- Better sleep
- Accelerated healing of wounds and injuries
- Greater bone density
- Faster recovery from illness
- Slowed down ageing process
- Overall wellness and vitality
