Pulsed magnetic therapy is not a new concept, but its benefits are being recognized again in the medical and alternative health communities. The first PEMF (Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field) device was actually introduced in the early 1900’s, and by the mid 1900’s, positive effects were already being documented in regards to healing and cellular wellness.
Why is Pulsed Magnetic Therapy effective?
All 70 trillion cells in our body produce and communicate through electromagnetic fields. When cells become damaged or unhealthy, they lose their shape and function(atypical cells are to blame for various diseases, including cancers). Pulsed Magnetic Therapy restores cells, allowing them to generate energy (ATP), eliminate waste, repair and regenerate, and increase performance.
This increased cellular health gives an amazing boost to your immune system. It only takes minutes after a treatment for red blood cells to become energized, and be able to move more quickly; this allows the cells to catch bacteria and other pathogens.
Eliminating pain is another major benefit (along with a longer list below) to Pulsed Magnetic Therapy. Patients who have endured years of medication and ineffective surgeries have obtained pain relief through PEMF.
Treatments that can repair and regenerate cells are extremely advantageous for an innumerable amount of health conditions. At Core Health in St. Louis, we are tremendously happy to be able to provide this therapy to our patients.

What to Expect
While sitting in a chair, a PEMF applicator (coil) is placed on a certain area, or a large part of the body. You will feel a very light tap, that’s all! It’s completely painless and usually takes anywhere from 6-12 minutes.
Pulsed Magnetic Therapy is extremely safe, with more than 2,000 double blind medical studies performed thus far.
