Dr. Brian Petrie Answers Frequently Asked Question Regarding PEMF



Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy


What Is PEMF?

Pulse Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Cellular Exercise is a therapy where electromagnetic fields reach deep inside your body to give your cells a work out. It causes your cells to expand and contract, similarly to when you work out in a fitness center. The same as your muscles, your cells need to be powerful. Unhealthy cells are characterized by low voltage. PEMF Cellular Exercise replenishes energy in cells that are low. Since your cells are contracting and expanding, they have the ability to expel toxins and absorb nutrients. Your cells' voltage increases as they grow more powerful. As the charge in your cells become more normal, your cells become stronger and more resilient, have a greater capacity to repair and heal successfully. Strong cells will create more strong cells!

What Are Some Benefits of PEMF Cellular Exercise?

PEMF Cellular Exercise has also been proven to encourage the body's own healing capacity by restoring the normal electrical charge that exists in healthy cells. Because your bodies electrical charge has been replenished, you are able to sleep better, experience more energy, and therefore are less likely to experience pain and swelling. 


What is the Background of PEMF Cellular Exercise? 

The basic technology has existed in a variety of forms for decades, beginning with Nikola Tesla's in the 1800's. About seventy years ago, Dr. Harold Saxton Burr, PhD demonstrated that health related disorders were preceded by a quantifiable imbalance within our cells electric charge. Shortly afterwards, PEMF Cellular Exercise was being used to aid in bone repair and development. It is well established as a device to enhance whole body health.  

How Old Do You Have To Be In order To From PEMF?

   There is no age requirement. Every cell at any age can benefit from having a normal    electrical charge.

   Can PEMF Therapy Hurt? 

  No, you will feel a gentle pulsing or tapping sensation. Many people fall asleep during   their session.


Is It Safe To Use PEMF? 

 Certainly! This treatment charges your cells and lets them work at their fullest  capacity. As an emerging field of research, studies continue to show that strong PEMF  pulses do something nothing else can--harmlessly slip past the cell's exterior to  stimulate the very important structures within.

 Who Should NOT Use PEMF? 

If you've got a pacemaker, are pregnant, have a history of seizure, or have any electronic device implanted in your body (which cannot be eliminated for your session), PEMF is not an option for you. Please inquire about other appointment types which could be helpful.

Will I Have to Undress For PEMF? 

No, all PEMF treatment could be performed fully clothed. You are welcome to remove your shoes, if you like.

Just How Long Are The PEMF Treatment Sessions? 

Generally, we urge 1 hour sessions to get the full benefit.

How Many Sessions Will I Need? 

This can be set by means of your intake evaluation. Different problems require different levels of therapy. We have affordable packages available which depends on what you would like to achieve.

What Is The Best Recommendation For Time Between Sessions?

Since the sessions have a cumulative on your cells, it is recommend that as you first begin PEMF, that your sessions are a minimum of at least two times every week, but if you're able to come every day if that works better. After your first set of appointments, we provide bundles and maintenance plans with weekly or monthly options -- based on your individual goals.

Do I Need a Medical Referral to Schedule An Appointment?

No. While many of our clients come to us at the recommendation of other doctors, a referral isn't required.

Will I Notice A Difference After My First Session?

Most people report that they feel improvement after their first visit in regards to pain reduction and improved mobility. Feeling tired or sore after your first session is likely due to toxins being released from your cells. Taking the Pulse Fuel beverage we offer has binders in it that can effectively grab and hold on to these toxins until they are excreted from your body. If you are experiencing these symptoms, please let us know at the start of your next visit. 

Does It Matter If I have Had Joint Replacement Surgery? 

That's no problem. Even with surgical metal screws, plates, rods, or joints, you're still able to take part in PEMF treatment. The magnetic field has no negative effect on these implants.

What Can I Do To Get The Most Out of My PEMF Session? 

Eating a clean, fresh, healthful diet that includes some raw food, fresh fruits and veggies as well as staying hydrated with quality water sources are a terrific way to support any wellness program. In addition, Pulse Fuel taken before and after a session while optimize your results.  Across the board, I continue to recommend chiropractic care to encourage total body recovery. Maintaining and active exercise program and exposure to daily sunlight is always recommended.

When your cells can communicate efficiently with each other and its environment and your energy is flowing freely through your nervous, your body will function, regenerate and repair more efficiently.

Is PEMF FDA Approved? 

Yes, the FDA first approved PEMF for bone regeneration in 1979 and through the years, has continued to add more indications for its use.  

Will insurance Cover My Sessions? 

PEMF is not a covered service with insurance plans. However, you could consult your insurance provider to see if they'll reimburse you for part or all your sessions. You can also consult the administrator of your Health Savings Account to determine if those funds may be used for PEMF sessions.

How Can I Schedule PEMF Session? 

You could always call our office at 508-821-4049. We offer an introductory package which include 3 1-hour session for $99.00.  By the end of these session, you will know whether PEMF is right for you.  Most people will experience significant benefit after the first session.
