PEMF Frequently Asked Questions


How do PEMF Sessions Work?

The PEMF device delivers a series of pulsating magnetic frequencies that creates a penetrating energy that will dynamically interact with cellular metabolism in order to produce a wide range of healing benefits. Those healing benefits to the body are increased ATP production, normalization of cellular membrane potentials, increasing oxygenation of tissues and improved removal of toxins from the cells.


What will the Session be Like?

A PEMF session will essentially feel relaxing. All that is required of the client is to lie on a massage table that has a PEMF system on it. No action or physical activity is required. Most people (and animals) simply go to a restful, meditative state or fall asleep. Afterwards they arise from the therapeutic experience feeling rested, peaceful and energized…minus some aches and pains. In addition to the pad, there is a smaller ‘pillow pad’ and a probe for application to specific areas.


What might I experience during a Session?

Since everyone is unique and has different physical problems or conditions, each will experience something different. There are numerous types of therapeutic and intensity settings on the device, allowing the individual to increase or decrease the effects. Thus a person can experience many different sensations. Frequently, people will state that they feel a tingling in an area of an old injury, while others say they feel a sense of wellness and relaxation. Check it out for yourself and see what you experience!


Who can get a PEMF session?

Everyone can use PEMF therapy from the very young to the elderly, from sedentary individuals to those that exercise daily. Essentially, anyone at any age group, any level of wellness or fitness including both humans and animals (of all species), can benefit from using this technology while experiencing no negative side effects


How often can you get a PEMF Session?

You can use PEMF therapy as often as you choose. Whether you use it once a day or once a week. PEMF treatment is a safe, easy to use and effective treatment with no negative side effects. Using PEMF just 20-60 minutes per day offers long lasting, significant relief not only throughout the day but throughout the weeks and months, as it mobilizes the body’s healing resources.


What are the contraindications?

There are very few contraindications for PEMF therapy.

Those who have pacemakers, those who are or maybe pregnant, or if you are epileptic


Is the iMRS FDA approved?

The iMRS is one of the ONLY TWO consumer (end-user) Pulsed Magnetic therapy products that are regulated by the FDA. It is also FDA compliant, FDA listed and FDA Registered. If you are considering any other PEMF device, most likely it is not regulated by the FDA. It is not, however, approved as a medical device by the FDA and therefore not covered by insurance panels.


What are the general health benefits of PEMF therapy?

The following is a list of the general health benefits from using PEMF therapy:

  • Improves recovery from physical exertion, strenuous activities and workouts, etc.
  • Balances the body’s acupuncture meridians in just a few minutes
  • Strengthens the immune system – gentle magnetic intensity does not over-stimulate the body
  • Improves wound healing – post-operative wound healing, better scar healing, from injuries, etc.
  • Positively affects pain reduction resulting from various causes – arthritis, back pain, bursitis, muscle stress, etc.
  • Normalizes action of the cellular electrical voltage potentials for healthier metabolism.


The following is a long list of health benefits from using PEMF therapy organized in specific body systems:


  • Strengthens the overall cardiovascular system.
  • Improves blood circulation and micro-circulation; reduces blood platelet adhesion (stickiness).
  • Positively influences secondary disorders, such as migraines and tinnitus.
  • Prevents Thrombosis (blood clots). (Patients using blood thinners must consult with physician before using PEMF therapy.)
  • Regulates high and low blood pressure; stimulates natural release of Nitric Oxide to relax and expand blood vessels.
  • Improves blood vessels, improves the cholesterol level, increases the oxygen partial pressure.


  • Increases oxygen uptake and reduces respiratory problems and asthma attacks.


  • Enhances the healing of muscle injuries from strains, sprains, tendonitis, and bursitis
  • Osteoporosis – measurable increases in bone density (20-30 percent) after only six months of daily use
  • Arthritis – reduces pain and inflammation, improves circulation and oxygenation.


  • Enhances the healing of muscle injuries from strains, sprains, tendonitis, and bursitis
  • Positive effects on Fibromyalgia – not a cure but relieves symptoms with continued use
  • Speeds post-operative healing of tissues, scars, etc.


  • Improves metabolism functions
  • Stimulates ATP production to provide more energy for the cells
  • Moves waste products and toxins out of the cells
  • Provides positive effects in: Elderly diabetic, Rheumatic disorders, Allergies, Menopausal complaints


  • Reduces stress
  • Provides positive effects in: Nervousness, Burnout Syndrome, Sleeping Disorders
