All athletes, from weekend runners to yoga experts, physical labourers to Olympic gold medalists, are hard on their bodies. To be able to maintain a high level of activity, maximize performance and prevent injury, all body systems need to be functioning optimally.
Magnetic resonance stimulation uses weak pulsing magnetic fields to optimize cell functions through increased ion transfer.
The Omnium1 PEMF system allows muscles to work harder, longer, and recover faster. For the competitive athlete this means, a stronger finish to a race, and shorter rest periods between games and practices. For the casual exerciser this means less muscle soreness after the dreaded “leg day”. By achieving and maintaining optimal cell functions with daily us of an Omnium1 PEMF system, a healthier environment is created within the body. Athletes who follow a daily PEMF protocol have more to give on game day and are less likely to succumb to injury.
What are the basic Physiological Responses from Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy?
Using a magnetic therapy system before physical activity has many real benefits for the athlete. PEMFs stimulate a process called myosin phosphorylation, which is the process of energy production in the muscle. Phosphorylation produces ATP, which is essential for cellular energy. ATP depletion, which happens with strenuous activity, causes muscles to weaken and potentially spasm. Rest naturally restores ATP, assuming the body is healthy enough to replenish it. PEMFs restore ATP by stimulating the myosin phosphorylation process. In fact, according to Dr William Pawluk MD, through an increased motion of ions and electrolytes, magnetic fields can help cells increase their energy by up to 500%.
Magnetic fields also increase the uptake of oxygen into the muscle. Research show that with the aid of the PEMF’s cells are able to better utilize the available oxygen, increasing endurance. Magnetic therapies also increase circulation, further helping tissues get the nutrition and oxygen they need, while expelling the waste they produce.
Using a magnetic therapy system after strenuous activity can both greatly diminish soreness and reduce painful muscle spasms and cramping. The body has a somewhat limited repertoire of reacting to damage, injury, or illness.
Training and workouts, even informal athletic activity like yard work, often cause muscle soreness from the buildup of lactic acid and breakdown of tissues.
All injuries produce swelling in the tissues, as does exercise itself. Swelling delays the ability of the tissues to be nourished with oxygen and nutrients. This is why you see athletes frequently being treated with ice packs. Ice packs reduce superficial swelling, but swelling or bruising deep in a muscle will not respond as well to ice. Conversely, PEMFs penetrate tissues deeply without risk to the superficial tissues. The PEMFs reduce swelling and speed removal of the blood in a bruise, leading to faster recovery and return to activity, competition or training.
From this, we can see that all athletes, competitive or otherwise, should be using daily PEMF treatments for preventative reasons and for overall health maintenance. In addition, the treatment of any injuries with PEMF’s accelerates even subtle healing, allowing the athlete to be healthier, stronger and perform better.
The effects of Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy are becoming increasingly apparent, particularly in professional high performance sports. Because of the exertion of daily endurance training, top-athletes are far more sensitive. Unlike the average person, however, they are aware of the smallest changes in their bodies. Today, many world champions and Olympic medalists from a variety of sports rely on PEMF Therapy for medical and physiotherapeutic treatments. To legally optimize endurance, they count predominantly on the natural effects of PEMF therapy. However, PEMF therapy is not limited to these athletes as leisure and amateur sports people also benefit from its positive effects.

We love our technology and our gadgets, whether we are needing it for our jobs, keeping up with the demands of life, or staying current with today’s newest and coolest! Our smart phones, smart watches, wireless headphones, laptops, tablets, video gaming systems, virtual home assistants, etc.
We may feel we get huge benefits from this technology but what about the downside to it all? If you take away the entertainment or the instant gratification of these products, what is left behind. Are these wildly smart and creative inventions good for us on all levels? Down deep, many people know the answer to that is no. Increasingly, everyday radiation is being shown to have adverse health risks, yet we continue to add more and more to our home and work environment. I am certainly not a naysayer of technology; I believe with modern day technology has come some of the greatest discoveries especially in medicine and health. But it is very possible that our daily exposure to all this technology is also harming our health, and those harmful effects are happening right at the cell level, the foundation of our bodies. We are literally made of about 70 trillion cells and our future health is dependant on how those cells function. It stands to reason then, that we would want to protect our cells and prevent any harm that may come to them. Afterall we are only as healthy as our cells!
Even knowing that these tech toys are not improving our internal body functions, we are not likely to ban these life luxuries from our homes for good. That would be an exceedingly difficult feat to achieve, and not completely necessary.
How Can We Stay Current with the Times but Mitigate the Damage of Everyday Radiation?
How do we balance the health risks from everyday radiation and everyday convenience? Luckily, there are some quite simple adjustments and additions we can make to significantly reduce our exposure without dramatically changing the way we live.
All we can do is our best, and with more knowledge we can make better choices in protecting ourselves and our loved ones in a world that is rapidly changing around us.
Would you like to have healthier, happier and more productive employees in 15 minutes a day? Renting a PEMF system for your work place and employees, could be the answer to better health and wellness and result in better productivity.
Sitting is the new smoking and sedentary circulation issues caused by remaining in static positions for long periods are becoming more and more common in the workplace. Millions of North American employees working desk jobs suffer from one or more of the following: chronic pain, low energy, poor sleep, fatigue, migraines, brain fog, anxiety, depression or stress. Some proactive companies are currently deploying preventative measures in the form of ergonomic work stations to prevent musculoskeletal disorders or lounge like lunch rooms to improve atmosphere. Though these may provide some symptomatic relief they are not getting to the true cause and there is a better way!
PEMF therapy is by far the most effective solution currently available on the market today to combat the negative effects of sedentary circulation issues commonly experienced by office workers.
Improve Employee Health & Wellness to Increase your Bottom Line!
PEMF - Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field therapy also known as MRS - Magnetic Resonance Stimulation is an energy medicine that uses weak pulsating electromagnetic fields to activate various physiological processes in the body by improving cell membrane potential through increased ion transfer. In simpler terms, PEMF is an all-natural way to combat cellular dysfunction by exercising and rehabilitating our cells. A low frequency pulsed electromagnetic field that mimics the earth’s magnetic field in frequency and intensity is used to re-energize our cells, optimizing cell functions, rebalancing and recalibrating the body systems.
How does PEMF Therapy work? The main feature of this treatment method is the resonance effect of pulsating magnetic fields in the body. Frequencies within the exact human biological window are transmitted as purposeful information to weakened or unhealthy cells whose functions have been restricted or diminished due to sedentary circulation issues caused by sitting for long periods and repetitive movements. Comprehensive scientific studies by many institutions including NASA have already proven the positive medical effects of pulsating electromagnetic fields and Health Canada has provided us with a Class 2 medical license.
How can PEMF Therapy benefit employees? Regulating the autonomic nervous system, stimulating, nerve recuperation, wound healing, alleviation of pain, improving metabolic function, improving circulation, improving immune system & lymphocytes. Reducing stress, regulating digestive activity, improving sleep patterns, improving effect of medications due to improved metabolism and circulation.
How will PEMF therapy sessions be administered? You lie on the Omnium1 PEMF mat fully clothed for 12- 24 minutes.
What will employees feel during the treatment? The majority of people don’t feel anything other than deep relaxation, as magnetic fields cannot be felt with our senses. Some users report a feeling of heat in areas where they have had a problem and it’s due to improved circulation in skin or muscles. It’s not what you feel during the treatment, it’s what happens after the treatment when cell functions have been optimized stimulating a natural healing response throughout the body.
