How long has Magna Wave been used or been available?
PEMF technology has existed for hundreds of years, dating back to somewhat primitive civilizations, and has been used for a variety of purposes, including seed germination. Magna Wave was founded in 2002, and has been providing an avenue for wellness in both humans and animals ever since, using only top-of-the-line equipment and thorough certification training.
What is Magna Wave PEMF?
A pulsating electro-magnetic field delivered to the body through a coil is said to produce one main result: stimulating cell metabolism. This action is thought to cause a chain of processes in the body that could lead to improvement of health without side effects. Increased oxygenation and blood flow helps support the bodies natural function and optimal wellness in a drug- free way.
Is Magna Wave PEMF safe to use for everyone?
Magna Wave PEMF machines are not medical devices and do not treat or cure diseases or their symptoms.You should always ask your doctor before using any type of PEMF machine, but generally yes they are safe to use.Your practitioner will talk to you about any contraindications.
Is it the same as other magnetic therapy blankets?
While the therapy is similar, the difference is in the delivery method, power and how Magna Wave yields a deeper penetration. The higher power of Magna Wave provides shorter treatment times and often immediate results. What the blankets can do in 2 to 3 weeks most Magna Wave machines can do in 10 minutes.
How long does a session take?
Normal session time is 15-30 minutes but can vary depending on the situation.
Can Magna Wave be used pre-event?
Yes, but at the trainer or athlete’s discretion. However, we recommend that you try it ahead of time, since different people react differently to a session. We have found that some clients are more relaxed after the therapy, so you might not have the same edge before an event. Other clients are not affected in that way and are ready to perform.
When can the athlete/person work after a session?
Immediately, there is no recovery time.
How long will the results last?
Results can last a day or weeks depending on the problem. In a performance situation 1-2 sessions per week is normally sufficient.
How does Magna Wave PEMF show areas of sensitivity?
Muscle tissue palpitates in sensitive areas because of some type of resistance in the area & increased oxygenation and molecule movement in the cells. This is all explained in-depth in our certification training.
Why treat the whole body when the problem is in one area?
By increasing the blood oxygen in the whole body, the sensitive area continues to be helped as super oxygenated blood from the rest of the body continues to flow through the area.Your practitioner will discuss how to approach your issue with you.
What happens during a session?
The blood oxygen is increased, lymphatic system is activated and acupuncture points are stimulated. This process reduces pain and inflammation and promotes healing. The oxygenation of the blood helps relieve inflammation, thus relieving pain and helping the body begin to heal itself naturally.
What should I expect after my first session?
A Magna Wave PEMF session can vary from one person to another. Diet, lifestyle, your level of activity, hydration, general health, stress levels and the quality of your nutrition all contribute to how it will work and how you feel after your sessions. Magna Wave PEMF can help you feel energized, and this feeling can build for a few hours after a session. It is important to keep track of how you are feeling and for how long after each session. It tells your doctor & practitioner how many sessions you'll need to achieve your goals.
If you feel tired after a session, this may be due to a detox reaction. Your body wants to clean house and is getting rid of toxins.
Resting and drinking plenty of fluids may support this detox reaction. People should talk to their doctors if this situation occurs.
Can Magna Wave PEMF be used on people with stents, or metal implants?
Yes. While the magnetic field will not go through metal it will go around implants to the surrounding tissue. People with certain battery operated devices such as a pacemaker do not qualify for the use of Magna Wave PEMF because the risk of depleting the battery.
