Stress is one of the most significant challenges we face today caused by life’s strain and pressure.
We may experience stress whilst disciplining children, managing finances, or coping with difficult relationships.
Stress triggers are everywhere. We can’t avoid it.
Some stress is healthy and appropriate in certain situations, even necessary to ensure we can perform when necessary i.e. for exams or an important presentation.

Stress is frequently accompanied by depression and/or anxiety and it can be damaging. Indications of stress becoming toxic is when it begins to impact lifestyle, relationships and work.

Have you considered using PEMF therapy for stress management?
How does PEMF reduce stress?
PEMF or Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy induces relaxation that can be experienced throughout the body.
According to an article by Bryant Meyers, PEMF fundamentally assists the body in slowing down and relaxing, and it directly shifts the nervous system to a more parasympathetic response.
Because when you feel stress, your body responds by releasing hormones that increase your blood pressure and raise your heart rate. This is called the stress response and involves the sympathetic nervous system to be in overdrive,
When you feel relaxation, your blood pressure and heart rate lowers. This is called a relaxation response.
And with a relaxed state of the mind, the body follows.
Relaxing can help you to quiet your mind and feel peaceful and calm. When you relax, your body responds as well. Your muscles, for example, may be less tense and more flexible.
With a relaxed mind and body, quality sleep is one of the many positive results. And we all know the vital role quality sleep plays to help maintain our body healthy.
That is why getting quality sleep is just as important as eating a healthy and balanced diet as well as exercising.
Getting enough sleep helps with the following:
When your body gets enough sleep, your immune cells and proteins have enough rest to fight off whatever comes their way, such as colds or the flu. And, according to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine’s well-rested sleep specialists, proper sleep can also make vaccines more effective, which is obviously a plus.
So the winning combination of healthy cells for a stronger immune system and a calming state of mind for a better night’s sleep facilitates stress relief, especially when PEMF is used daily.
PEMF alleviates depression and anxiety
A study at Harvard Medical School discovered that the PEMF device they used resulted in an increase of around 10% improvement in emotion after just one 20-minute treatment in patients with bipolar disorder and major depressive disorder.
Michael Rohan, a physicist at McLean Hospital’s Brain Imaging Center and a lecturer at Harvard Medical School, is the study’s first author.
According to him, PEMF appears to have an immediate effect on mood and thus has the potential to provide relief in emergency situations.
In the same study, in addition to providing quick relief from symptoms, the PEMF was shown to have no side effects.
Stress relief techniques, exercises and even medication to counter stress, anxiety and depression are available, but they all take time to take effect.
Unlike PEMF, which, according to the study, results in a positive change in the subjects’ behaviour after a single 20-minute treatment.
Is PEMF Therapy Dangerous?
PEMF is a non-invasive healing therapy that uses only natural magnetic frequencies that fall between the earth’s natural frequencies “biological window,’ or 0.5 – 15 Hz.
It is relatively new in Australia but it is the most scientifically researched and documented field of energy medicine. Many well-known doctors and researchers are now discovering the numerous advantages of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy.
Is PEMF Therapy available to everyone?
PEMF Therapy is not for everyone. Please do not schedule a treatment if:
- you are pregnant
- you have any implanted electronic devices (e.g., pacemakers, defibrillators, or insulin delivery systems); and/or
- you have epilepsy
If you are ever unsure, please contact our staff to clarify.
PEMF Therapy is a natural stress reliever that is gaining popularity not only in Australia, but around the world.
Many people are discovering how quickly it can provide stress relief that no stress relief supplement, stress relief exercise, or other types of intervention can provide.
If you are looking for an alternative method of stress management or a new therapy modality to supplement an existing therapy plan, please contact us and speak with one of our friendly staff members who can discuss the potential benefits of PEMF therapy with you.
