PEMF Therapy:

What is PEMF therapy?

PEMF therapy is an FDA-approved treatment for several health problems, including non-union factors and depression, and it can also be used to promote all-body wellness. Each cell in your body produces an electromagnetic field. When the cell is healthy, this field has a voltage of -20 to -25 millivolts. If this voltage drops below -15 millivolts, then you can start to get sick.

PEMF therapy works by inducing an electromagnetic field that increases the voltage of your body’s cells in order to help them to heal. There are a variety of PEMF devices available, including all-over body mats (similar in size and shape to yoga mats), localized pad applicators, or pinpointed probe applicators. In all of them, there will be several flat spiral coils that produce a magnetic field. There will also be a frequency generator that energies the coils to produce a pulsed electromagnetic field.

What does PEMF therapy do?

PEMF therapy has a really wide-ranging effect on the body because it does affect each one of your cells (less so if you are using a localized applicator). These can include:

  • Improved blood circulation
  • A reduction in inflammation
  • The stimulation of muscle tissue, including inducing relaxation
  • Improved oxygenation of tissue
  • Enhanced cellular repair, including an activation of the regeneration process and the regeneration of nerve tissue
  • Improved immune system
  • Cartilage repair
  • Better sleep
  • Stimulation of HGH and melatonin – potential anti-aging effects

Regular use of PEMF therapy can, therefore, help to improve general health and wellbeing, and can help your body to heal at a faster rate. You might also get sick less, feel more relaxed, and get a better night’s sleep.

Red Light Therapy:

What is red light therapy used for?

Studies have found that some of the ways red light wavelengths work to improve overall health include:

  1. Increased Immunity
  2. Wound Healing
  3. Reduced Side effects from cancer treatments
  4. Anti Aging
  5. Improved joint health
  6. Improved Sleep
  7. Improved Mood
  • Increasing energy levels by promoting release of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) from cells’ mitochondria
  • Stimulating DNA/RNA synthesis
  • Activating the lymphatic system, an important part of our immune system that helps carry waste out of the body
  • Increasing blood flow/circulation, thereby helping bring more oxygen and nutrients to our cells and tissues
  • Forming new capillaries (small blood vessels)
  • Improving natural production of collagen and fibroblasts, important for skin care and joint and digestive health
  • Repairing and restoring damaged soft connective tissue
  • Stimulating or decreasing inflammation, which helps control our natural healing capabilities
  • Lowering effects of oxidative stress/free radical damage, which is associated with many effects of aging

How often should you do red light therapy?
Each individual will react to RLT somewhat differently. A general recommendation is to try this form of therapy consistently for about eight to 12 weeks.
You can begin with shorter sessions and consider increasing your time once you monitor your reaction. For best results, aim to complete three to four sessions per week for the first one to four weeks.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy – Also Known As Radial Pressure Wave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a medical treatment that utilizes ultrasound technology to send high-energy acoustic waves into the target area to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities. At the most basic level, shockwave therapy stimulates new cell growth. These new, healthy cells replace old, weak, or damaged cells.

Shockwaves are actually focused ultrasonic energy (i.e., ultrasound), which is simply sound waves that have a vibration frequency greater than 20,000 Hz. For reference, most humans hear sounds with a frequency between 20 and 20,000 Hz.

Shockwave therapy goes by a number of names, including:

  • Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT)
  • Acoustic wave therapy
  • Radial pressure wave therapy (RPW), also known as radial shockwave therapy
  • Focused shockwave therapy (FSW)

Numerous studies prove that shockwave, or radial pressure wave therapy, is an effective means of eliminating chronic pain without surgery.
Doctors first used shockwave therapy in the 1990s, to treat kidney stones. They observed that the treatment seemed to accelerate healing in both bone and soft tissues, which led to research into other medical applications of RPW treatments.

The Benefits of Radial Shockwave Therapy

Research over the past 20 years shows how RPW shockwave therapy is effective against chronic pain and inflammation.

  • Improved blood flow: The acoustic waves in Shockwave therapy create microscopic tears in tissues, which causes the body to create new blood vessels. This increases blood flow and oxygenation to the treatment area, promoting faster healing.
  • Reduces inflammation: Chronic inflammation causes pain and reduced function. Mast cells help fight inflammation; acoustic waves increase mast cell activity.
  • Increased collagen production: Collagen is vital to bone and joint health as it is a key component in the structure of muscle, skin, and connective tissues. Shockwave therapy causes your body to increase collagen production, creating a strong support structure for new cells.
  • Reduces calcification: Damaged tendons typically have a buildup of calcium. Acoustic waves break through that calcium buildup, which the body then expels naturally.
  • Interrupts the “pain train”: Your body sends pain messages via a neurotransmitter called Substance P. Shockwave therapy lowers Substance P concentrations, interrupting those pain messages. That reduced concentration also inhibits your body’s inflammatory response to provide even more pain relief.
  • Relaxes trigger points: Extreme muscle tension in the back, neck, shoulders, and limbs (your body’s pain trigger points) impedes blood flow to those areas. This causes pain as the muscle no longer receives enough oxygen. Blood flow is also how your body removes waste. Lack of oxygen and waste buildup causes even more tension in the muscle, creating a cycle known as metabolic crisis. Acoustic wave therapy releases the tension in these trigger points, easing pain and breaking the cycle.

Vibration Plate Therapy

A vibration plate is sometimes referred to as a vibration platform or whole body vibration machine. As its name suggests, it is a platform that vibrates when you stand on it. This vibration forces your muscle fiber to contract in order to keep your balance.

Does this mean you can just stand on the vibration plate and expect positive results? Not exactly. You still have to exercise when using a vibration platform machine.

It’s like the difference between doing biceps curls without weight or doing the same exercise with dumbbells or resistance bands. You have greater muscle contraction when using resistance. In vibration training, the vibration increases resistance as you work to stay balanced amidst the motion. If you stand on the vibration plate without movement, you don’t get the full benefit of this equipment.


Better muscle recovery. Several studies support whole body vibration for improving blood flow. Good blood circulation assists with muscle recovery after a tough workout. It does this by enabling more oxygen and nutrients to reach the damaged tissue. Not to mention, proper blood circulation is critical for optimal health.

Increased muscle strength. Research also suggests that using a vibration plate is effective for building muscle strength. One 2020 meta-analysis notes this effect for seniors specifically. Improved strength makes it easier to complete everyday activities. It’s also helpful for athlete clients who rely on strength in their sport of choice.

Reduced bone loss. Bone density is important to reducing the risk of fractures and breaks. Strength training is one way to reduce bone loss. Using a vibration machine is another. It works by increasing bone formation and decreasing bone absorption according to research. Together, this creates a stronger skeletal system.

Better balance. As we age, our risk of developing balance issues increases. These issues are often a result of reduced flexibility and muscle strength. Research indicates that whole body vibration can improve postural control in seniors. It also indicates that it is as effective as conventional exercise for improving lower body strength in this demographic.

Greater flexibility. One study published in the Journal of Sport Rehabilitation reports moderate evidence for using vibration training to improve hamstring flexibility. Another study supports vibration for both greater flexibility and improved range of motion. Better flexibility means lower injury risk. It also helps enhance performance.

Decreased muscle soreness. It’s not uncommon to develop muscle soreness after exercise. That said, there are things you can do to help reduce the level of discomfort. Using a vibration plate is one option. The authors of one piece of published research explain that it does this in a few ways. One is its effects on the pressure pain threshold. It also helps lower creatine kinase levels, thereby reducing the pain.

Faster weight loss. Whole body vibration increases metabolism. This improves the body’s ability to burn more body fat. A review of 18 studies reports noticeable effects after using a vibration machine for six weeks or more. These effects included a “significant” reduction in both weight and fat mass.

Boosted immunity. Exercise, in general, is known for boosting immunity. Research has also associated this benefit with whole body vibration specifically. Better immunity means fewer colds and illnesses. It also helps protect against disease.

Lower blood pressure. Many people battle with high blood pressure. This increases their risk of heart attack, stroke, and more. Studies have shown that whole body vibration lowers blood pressure, especially in overweight and obese individuals. It also improves arterial function.
