If you’ve been following the world of wellness lately, then you’ve probably come across the word PEMF at least once or twice.
I became curious about PEMF when I started noticing a lot of various doctors and wellness providers talking about it, especially throughout the past year. The experts would discuss PEMF and why it was helpful while also promoting certain PEMF products.
Ultimately, via the powers of persuasion, I decided to give it a go and purchased the PEMF Go Mat from the company HIGHERDOSE. After using the mat at least 4 times a week for the past month, I was impressed. My body aches significantly decreased and I found myself feeling more connected and grounded in the present moment.
PEMF stands for pulsed electromagnetic field, and this technology works by sending low-level frequency throughout the body to recharge cells, expedite recovery, and calm the central nervous system. This low level frequency mimics the earth and the energy it emits 24/7. PEMF has been scientifically proven to improve chronic pain conditions, lessen inflammation, and improve immune response.
Much like the earth, our bodies are electromagnetic; our brains use electromagnetic signals to communicate with every bodily system. Science has proven that if our cells have enough electrical charge that the body will heal itself, but because we are inside buildings and not connected to nature, we don’t have as much access to this natural healing energy, thus the use of the PEMF mat.
PEMF infuses the body with natural energy at the cellular level. The body may use that energy to:
• Heal and regenerate itself • Enhance its natural recovery process • Assist with muscle fatigue and discomfort after exercise • Increase energy or support relaxation • Balance the body’s interconnected systems
Because most of us are working, sleeping, and living our lives inside buildings, we’ve lost our connection to the earth’s energy which helps our bodies heal and ground more effectively. Using a PEMF mat during the work day has helped me attain that connection even when I’m inside my office seeing clients for eight hours a day.
The PEMF mat I use from HIGHERDOSE is packed with 20 pounds of crystals such as amethyst and tourmaline. These crystals naturally generate negative ions that fight free radicals, which can start doing damage to the body if out of balance.
Amethyst is classified as a semiprecious stone, but can also come in crystal formation. The purple-colored gem usually forms as a crystal lining within basalt rock and looks amazingly beautiful with its deep purple color. My therapy clients will often see me holding a small amethyst stone in my hands during sessions due to the fact that it helps me as a therapist stay focused and grounded.
Amethyst is believed to hold many benefits:
• Natural tranquilizer • Relieves stress and strain • Soothes irritability • Balances mood swings, dispels anger, rage, fear and anxiety • Is believed to alleviate sadness, grief, and dissolve negativity
If you’re feeling as though you want to invite more connection to the earth’s energy but don’t have the ability to be outside, then I highly suggest trying PEMF technology and feeling how it impacts you and your body. If a piece of PEMF technology isn’t within the budget, then I suggest making a commitment to be outside and touch the earth with your bare feet/skin as much as possible to invite this natural healing energy.
