PEMF or pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is a method of introducing short bursts of low level electromagnetic energy to the body. The technology has been around for decades and has evolved from use in the medical field to broader therapeutic uses. Unlike harmful microwaves, radio frequency or X-ray energy, PEMF energy is lower and more like frequencies found in nature. Research has found PEMF beneficial in increasing microcirculation, decreasing pain, swelling and inflammation, improving energy, and supporting healing.
BEMER is the type of the PEMF device used at Alternative Health and Allergy. Sessions with the BEMER mat or belt last around 10-15 minutes and are generally relaxing. A series of treatments is usually recommended, and many people experience benefits within a couple weeks.
