What is PEMF Therapy?

Learn how BEMER’s PEMF Therapy Device Can Enhance Your Health


Did you know electricity is running through your body right now? All living things generate electricity and without it we cannot live! The elements in our cells (think oxygen, hydrogen and carbon) carry different electrical charges and send vital signals to various parts of the body. All of these vital materials are transported throughout our body via the circulatory system. So both electricity and blood flow are crucial to maintain and sustain optimal physiological function.


Buzz around Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy has been steadily rising over the past few years, but research into this technology has been going strong for more than two decades now. While the technology has been gaining serious traction and wider usage, the mechanics behind the therapy and these devices can be difficult to understand at first glance.


BEMER is a leading innovator in PEMF technology with a Class II FDA Clearance, in addition to numerous technology patents and a joint collaboration agreement with NASA. BEMER products enhance muscle stimulation, muscle recovery, physical fitness/endurance, stress reduction, relaxation and sleep quality. BEMER products are currently used globally by millions of consumers, thousands of hospitals and clinics, as well as hundreds of professional athletes.


To demystify PEMF technology, we decided to tackle the most commonly asked questions and concerns around this treatment and BEMER’s unique approach to these systems.


What Does PEMF Therapy Do?


PEMF therapy has a number of benefits, but BEMER’s main focus is on aiding in healthy blood circulation on the microcirculatory level. Around 75% of the blood vessels in your body are microvessels, such as arterioles, capillaries, and venules. These microvessels are responsible for a process called cellular respiration. Your red blood cells (RBC) deliver oxygen and nutrients and take away carbon dioxide and metabolic waste to be disposed of or recycled. This process forms the basis for every mechanism, system, and organ to operate within the body — without healthy blood flow, every other bodily system suffers. 


Where BEMER’s PEMF devices come into play is in temporarily increasing local blood circulation in healthy muscles at the microcirculatory level using the patented BEMER signal of electromagnetic pulses. These waves have been carefully tuned to match the human body’s natural blood pumping rhythms by stimulating electrical activity within the muscle tissues. 


Is PEMF Therapy Safe?


The goal of any therapy is to seek first to do no harm and to support the body’s natural ability to heal itself. PEMF utilizes similar low-frequency waves that your body’s process naturally produces. On the electromagnetic spectrum, radiation is classified into two types (ionizing and non-ionizing) based on the radiation’s capability of ionizing atoms and disrupting chemical bonds. The frequencies utilized by PEMF treatment are on the polar opposite of the spectrum from ionizing radiation like X and gamma rays. In fact, the waves used by BEMER devices sit below even what a home WiFi router will emit.



BEMER devices have even received certification as an FDA Class II consumer medical device – one of the first of its kind for PEMF devices. Adding to that, there are numerous studies cataloged on on not only the safety of these treatments but the positive effects that patients experienced as a result.


Does PEMF Therapy Have Benefits Outside of Blood Circulation?


There are a few interesting layers to this question because good blood circulation is so closely tied with other bodily systems and functions. First of all, one of the benefits of PEMF treatments comes from the energizing of the individual cells themselves, aiding the mitochondria in the production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). ATP regulates cell metabolism by transporting chemical energy within our cells. Low ATP levels cause our cells to be sick and decreases their ability to recover, regenerate, and/or function properly. 


The sum of this means improved performance at a cellular level for all of your body’s systems — all of which are intertwined with healthy blood circulation. Now to get into some of the tangible results of this, strong blood circulation is tied with improved physical fitness, higher energy and increased vitality, more strength and endurance, enhanced performance and muscle conditioning, and an overall general sense of relaxation and well-being.
