Pulsed Electromagnetic Energy Field Therapy (PEME or PEMF)

Magnets have been used therapeutically since the time of the ancient Egyptians but, until the invention of electro-magnets, applications have always been limited by the problems of size and weight.

In recent years research has shown that the human cell is even more responsive to electromagnetic energy as it is to chemical action. This has reopened the door to the use of magnets - especially pulsed electro-magnets - in the treatment of many disorders.

An impressive amount of medical and scientific research has confirmed the usefulness of PEME therapy across a wide variety of applications.


What can PEME be used for?

Appropriate magnetic fields can improve the circulation and healing responses in a variety of tissues, giving a wide area of potential applications.

Most research has been centred around musculo-skeletal problems. These include:

  • Traumatic fractures (even when still in plaster)
  • Ununited and stress fractures
  • Strains
  • Muscle tears
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
  • Post-operative recovery
  • Bruising
Many circulatory and fatigue problems can also be responsive.

Recent research has indicated the possible use of PEME to improve memory and calm agitation in patients suffering from dementia.


What is involved in the treatment?

The patient sits or lies fully clothed whilst the electromagnetic 'pad' is placed on or just above the area to be treated. As there is no necessity for the pad to touch the skin directly, this makes it very suitable even for extremely sensitive or tender areas.


How long does the treatment last?

To obtain full benefit from the PEME it is advisable to have at least 2 sessions of 1 hour each week. In acute conditions, daily treatment can produce rapid improvement.

The PEME treatment is usually integrated with osteopathic and/or therapeutic exercises.


Are there any side-effects?

Post treatment, mild fatigue occasionally.



Metal implants in treated area. Abdominal or low back treatment is not advised in pregnancy.


Dress Code

Remove shoes and any heavy metal objects near the area of treatment (e.g. belt buckles).
