Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy, also called Pulsed EMF or simply PEMF is a therapeutic modality in which a compatible source of safe, electromagnetic energy is externally applied to the body to augment the body's own, natural fields. This provides more energy for cells to carry out their functions, and often results in improved symptoms.
Because most people associate the terms "electromagnetic fields" and "EMF" with negative effects, such as that coming from electrical appliances and overhead powerlines, there is confusion on what constitutes Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy. There is in fact a big difference.
ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS ARE NATURALLY PRODUCED BY YOUR BODY
Your body is comprised of trillions of living cells that are in constant motion.
Here are just a few examples of ongoing movement in your cells and tissues:
- cell division
- blood circulation
- nerve impulses
- immune cell migration
- hormone transport
- extracting energy (ATP>ADP) from glucose
- DNA transcription/ protein synthesis
- CO2 and O2 exchange
- nutrient entry through cell membranes
- enzymatic activity
And the phenomenon that drives this motion? Tiny electrical charges.
HOW CAN THIS HELP MY PET?

- Accelerates Healing & Recovery (Post Surgery)
- Improved Moods (Decreased Aggression)
