What is PEMF?

PEMF is a pulsing electromagnetic field that passes through the skin and penetrates deep into muscle, bone, tendons and organs to charge and stimulate the cells of the body, providing them with additional energy to repair and boost their natural performance.


While the concept seems modern, the use of electromagnetic fields for wellness actually dates back to the 19th century and has a rich history of scientific discovery.

Think of PEMF as a raw material, an essential source of electromagnetic energy that your body craves to heal and regulate itself.

For more detail, see the science section below. Or watch this short video here from Pulse PEMF:

How does PEMF feel?

Much depends on a variety of factors, including health, age, the level of intensity setting and quality of the PEMF machine/system and the type of accessories used. You will feel anything from a warm feeling, especially when the field is focused on particular parts of the body, through to pulsing or twitching muscles at higher settings. The result is often a feeling of deep relaxation and/or feeling physically energized.

What is PEMF used for?

As a general purpose wellness technology and not a specific purpose medical device, PEMF systems aim to create the conditions for your cells and body to function better, rather than directly to cure or treat any particular medical condition. The benefits of PEMF are therefore diverse and can have a positive impact on various aspects of health and well-being.


At Camden’s House we are very careful to respect the fact that qualified medical advice must be at the core of decision-making in relation to the treatment of any particular injury or condition. So we always encourage (and sometimes require) our customers to speak with their doctor before utilising PEMF.


People around the world are turning to the beneficial effects of PEMF in the following ways. But we always defer to qualified medical advice about what is best for your particular circumstances.

  • Pain Relief: PEMF has been used to help alleviate both acute and chronic pain.

  • Improved Healing: By stimulating cellular activity and promoting blood flow, PEMF aims to accelerate the healing process for fractures, wounds, and soft tissue injuries.

  • Depression/Anxiety: In 2006, the US FDA approved PEMF for combatting depression and anxiety.

  • Enhanced Sleep: Many individuals report improved sleep quality and relaxation after PEMF sessions.

  • Reduced Inflammation: PEMF has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects.

  • Increased Circulation: PEMF promotes vasodilation, enhancing blood flow and oxygenation to tissues. This increased circulation can support healing processes and improve overall cellular function.

  • Stress Reduction: The wellness effects of PEMF can have a calming effect on the nervous system, helping to reduce stress, anxiety, and promote relaxation.

PEMF is a general wellness system and not designed to be a targeted medical treatment. It’s important to note that individual responses to PEMF may vary, and its effectiveness can depend on factors such as the intensity and duration of treatment and individual health characteristics.

Camden’s House cannot offer any medical advice, including diagnosing any medical condition or advising upon particular treatment options. We always encourage customers to consult with their doctor if there is a particular injury or condition that they wish to address.

How often should I have PEMF sessions?

It depends on your goals. We recommend starting off with at least 3 sessions in fairly quick succession e.g. in one or two weeks. A quick burst of sessions like that should lead to feeling a positive difference and create cellular improvements right away. Think of PEMF like going to the gym for your cells. One gym session can make you feel good, but the real effects come with multiple (and ideally ongoing) sessions.

We offer multi-session recharge packages which reduce the cost per session. We also offer ‘Lifestyle’ Memberships for those who want to make PEMF a permanent part of a healthier lifestyle. Regular and consistent use creates the best prospects for realising long-term health and longevity effects.

Our State of the Art PEMF Machine: Pulse XL Pro

We have invested significantly so that Camden’s House customers receive a safe, powerful, effective and luxury PEMF service. We have imported from the USA the best PEMF device (the Pulse XL Pro) from the best PEMF manufacturer in the world (Pulse PEMF,USA).

The Pulse XL Pro is the only high-intensity luxury PEMF system engineered with solid-state power and user-controlled pulsing. It can provide 19 unique pulse rates with adjustable strength and allows for two simultaneous accessories.

This is not only professional grade. It is the top end of the professional grade! This is the system the rich and famous use.

We also invested in the accessories which connect to the Pulse XL Pro: the chair, the pads, the rings and the square. Together these allow our clients to utilise PEMF for their own unique circumstances, whether it’s full body lying down, sitting down, or focusing pulsing to a particular body part.

Is PEMF Therapy safe?

PEMF has been approved by the US FDA for numerous medical issues. It has been the subject of much research and studies on both humans and animals and has not been associated with any adverse of negative side-effects. PEMF is being used regularly and safely by people (and animals) across the world right now.

Who should not use PEMF

Notwithstanding its impeccable safety record, there are certain groups which it is recommended should not use PEMF:

  • Individuals with implanted electronic devices, including pacemaker, defibrillator, cochlear hearing device, spinal stimulator, glucose monitor, or insulin pump

  • Pregnant women

  • Individual who has active bleeding or hemorrhaging

  • Individual who is the recipient of an organ transplant

  • Individual with injuries or concerns of injuries that have not yet been evaluated by a licensed medical professional

  • Individuals with cancer

  • Individuals with epilepsy or other seizure disorders

We always encourage consultation with your doctor or other licensed medical provider if you suffer from any particular injury or condition.

All customers will be required to sign a Declaration Form, undertaking that they do not fall within any of the above categories before a PEMF session is commenced. If there are any uncertainties it is likely that we will insist that your doctor provide advice before proceeding with a PEMF session.

The History of PEMF

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy has a history that dates back to the mid-1900s when extensive research on electromagnetic fields gained momentum.


In the 1980s, modern PEMF machines became commercially available, marking a significant milestone in the development and accessibility of PEMF. Around then, Drs Andrew Bassett and Arthur Pilla in the US pioneered the development of the first (US) FDA-approved PEMF device for stimulating bone healing.


Both the Soviet and US (NASA) Space Agencies took interest in PEMF research as a means to mitigate the adverse effects of micro-gravity on the body. This further contributed to the recognition and exploration of the therapeutic potential of PEMF.


In the 2000’s, the US FDA granted approval for PEMF therapy in cervical spine surgeries, treatment for depression, and then in 2020 allowed PEMF to be marketed without FDA approval for wellness treatments (as opposed to specific medical claims).


Scientific studies continue to be carried out, adding to the supporting evidence for the beneficial use of PEMF for numerous issues.


PEMF is now offered in countries across the world, including in the UK.

The Science Behind PEMF

Cell membranes have positive and negative magnetic charges, but those cells can degrade over time or become damaged due to injury. The cells can therefore become dysfunctional. That means the cells are then incapable of exchanging the ions that are transporting the chemical compounds your body needs, like potassium and calcium. The symptoms that arise from this type of failure to function include chronic pain, fatigue, and inflammation. PEMF is a non-invasive way to target these areas, and call the body’s attention to them.


The body of knowledge around PEMF grew dramatically in the 2000s, leading to FDA approvals for the use of PEMF for various ailments, including depression. Many medical studies have been done which provide positive evidence for the effect of PEMF in various ways.

Just a small selection of the medical studies and literature are provided below. But there is a wealth of additional information online (although we would note that reading of medical literature is not a replacement for qualified medical advice). We always encourage customers to seek advice from their doctor if they have a particular injury or condition.

Stimulating and exercising the cells to support overall wellness:

“Energy medicine through PEMF therapy is a key new modality for wellness chiropractors as it promotes natural and measurable wellness and healing down to the cellular level in every tissue, bone and organ of the body.”

Pierce M. Incorporating Energy Medicine in Your Chiropractic Practice Through Pulsed Electromagnetic (PEMF) Therapy. American Chiropractor, Jun2012; 34(6): 52-54. (3p)

Enhance the body’s natural recovery process:

“When the energy fields pass seamlessly into the cells of the area, the cells absorb that energy. In this way, the electromagnetic fields exercise and energize those cells. PEMF practitioners can direct electromagnetic fields towards ‘spot’ areas of a patient’s body that have injuries or other damage, or they can provide ‘broad’ area treatment to improve self-reported psychometric measures of sleep, mood, and quality of life (life satisfaction) without adverse effects. That’s why PEMF sessions are often called ‘cellular exercise’ and are popular among biohackers.”

Tucker J. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy: Biohacking Part III. American Chiropractor, (2019, November 11), 41, 44-45.

Assist with muscle fatigue and discomfort after exercise:

“Overall, the application of the PEMF was found to be effective in reducing the physiological deficits associated with DOMS [delayed onset muscle soreness], including improved recovery of perceived muscle soreness, MDF, and EMD during isometric contraction.”

Jeon HS, Kang SY, Park JH, Lee HS. Effects of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy on delayed-onset muscle soreness in biceps brachii. Phys Ther Sport. 2015;16(1):34-39. doi:10.1016/j.ptsp.2014.02.006

Support general relaxation:

“In conclusion, we found that manual acupuncture and electromagnetic field stimulation at BL15 using manual acupuncture and a PEMF (2 Hz and 460 gauss) caused identical patterns for the activation of the parasympathetic nervous system.”

Lee NR, Kim SB, Heo H, Lee YH. Comparison of the Effects of Manual Acupuncture, Laser Acupuncture, and Electromagnetic Field Stimulation at Acupuncture Point BL15 on Heart Rate Variability. J Acupunct Meridian Stud. 2016;9(5):257-263. doi:10.1016/j.jams.2016.06.002

“The parasympathetic nervous system is responsible for the body’s rest and digestion response when the body is relaxed, resting, or feeding. It basically undoes the work of sympathetic division after a stressful situation. The parasympathetic nervous system decreases respiration and heart rate and increases digestion.”

Noyes FR, Barber-Westin SD. (2017). Diagnosis and Treatment of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Noyes’ Knee Disorders: Surgery, Rehabilitation, Clinical Outcomes, 1122-1160. doi:10.1016/b978-0-323-32903-3.00040-8

Increase natural energy:

“Specifically, subjects experienced significantly less fatigue during the four weeks they wore the active [PEMF] device than they did while wearing the placebo device.”

Lappin MS, Lawrie FW, Richards TL, Kramer ED. Effects of a pulsed electromagnetic therapy on multiple sclerosis fatigue and quality of life: a double-blind, placebo controlled trial. Altern Ther Health Med. 2003;9(4):38-48.

Increase natural energy:

“The periodic increase in blood flow during the PEMF treatment regimen provides more nutrients and better oxygen – carbon dioxide exchange in skeletal muscle and a potential for greater energy production.” “PEMFs increase heat-independent blood-flow to skeletal muscle after treatment. Increased blood flow, like that during exercise, enhances nutrient delivery and facilitates gas exchange in active or injured tissues.”
