What Is PEMF Therapy?

PEMF (Pulsed electromagnetic field) therapy is a therapeutic use of pulsating magnetic fields and is applied using PEMF devices.

Electromagnetic exchange between cells

Nothing happens in the body without an electromagnetic exchange between cells. Natural electromagnetic energy controls our chemistry. When this energy is disrupted (by a bruise or traumatic injury, a tough workout, bad diet, or simply from getting older), our cells are impaired. When your cells aren’t healthy, your body isn’t healthy, in whole or in part.

There are at least 800 peer-reviewed papers supporting the fact that electrical shock and electrical currents can induce significant acceleration of repair in bone and other tissues (tendon and ligament). But the problem has always been (a) locating electrodes close enough to the tissues to be stimulated electrically, and (b) the fact that free electrical current follows a random path of least resistance. 

PEMF systems like the FlexPulse PEMF, brought to market by our founder Dr. William Pawluk, MD, device solve these problems by using magnetic fields as opposed to direct electrical fields. The FlexPulse™ magnetic field generates a pulsed electromagnetic field at all levels of the tissues in the right range of field strength and duration to provide a cellular response much more safely than conventional electrotherapy.

Benefits of PEMF therapy

PEMF therapy can be used by almost anyone to help with almost any condition or problem. Because magnetic fields affect us on a cellular level, they are not condition-specific. PEMF therapy has been shown to decrease inflammation, increase circulation, enhance muscle function, speed up bone healing, reduce the effects of stress, and improve blood oxygenation, among a myriad of other things.

The variety of programs in the FlexPulse™ means it will be effective from everything from wound healing (anything from a bruise to an organ dysfunction) to quieting down an overactive mind, and almost everything in between.


The only absolute contraindication for use of the FlexPulse™ G2 is placing the applicators over implanted electrical devices like pacemakers, cochlear implants, intrathecal pumps, etc, because the magnetic field can shut the device off. Beyond that, the FlexPulse is safe for use over the heart (in fact, research has shown benefit to congestive heart failure, A-Fib, etc), over the brain, over the eyes (a common use is for treatment of macular degeneration), directed at the prostate, etc. Safety of PEMFs has not been established in pregnancy, although there is no evidence of harm either. They should be used with caution in Grave’s disease or active bleeding.
