How Does PEMF Work?
To understand the healing power of PEMF, one must first understand that every tissue in the body has its own unique energetic frequency, as do specific conditions. For example, just like there is a different frequency for muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones, there are also unique frequencies for inflammation, scars, swelling, and so on.
Various things in the environment can negatively impact the bioenergetics of the body, including toxins, poor diet, lack of hydration, and chronic stress. PEMF helps to restore the normal frequency of affected tissues through a scientific principle known as resonance.
PEMF therapy can help improve symptoms like inflammation & pain, digestive issues, stress, sleeplessness or fatigue. Once we can identify the underlying root cause of the symptoms we can then program the device with the most appropriate frequencies to be applied during a session. When the correct frequencies are applied, it can often result in a dramatic resolution of symptoms.
PEMF benefits may include:
Reduced pain and inflammation
Reduced stress and anxiety
Improved sleep patterns
Support for detoxification
Increased metabolism and promotes weight loss
Strengthened immune system
Improved mood and sense of well-being
Programmable - Safe - Easy to Use
Our MagRez-B PEMF units are powerful, yet small enough to take with you where ever you go.
The MagRez-B is also programmable, allowing you to choose from
28 basic wellness programs to personalize your PEMF experience.
The MagRez-B can also be custom programed by an Elevate staff member, who has access to a much larger frequency database.
These PEMF programming visits are available by appointment only.
Try it before you buy it!
Our rental program allows you to use the MagRez-B for 14 days for only $250. If you decide to buy a device at the end of this period the $250 will be applied to the purchase price of a new device.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Frequency therapy?
PEMF is a faint magnetic current that is so small it is measured in millionths of an amp. By comparison a TENS unit and most other electro-therapies produce milliamps, 1000 times greater. Your own cells generate a current in the microamp range and this is why you can’t feel it - the current is so low it doesn’t stimulate sensory nerves.
How do the frequencies work?
We believe PEMF works on the principle of biologic resonance. A singer can shatter a glass when the note resonates with the crystal structure of the glass. Pulsed Magnetic frequencies seem to be able to resonate with biologic tissue when the frequency is correct. Once the tissue is changed and stable, it seems to be able to stay in the new configuration with proper nutritional support, exercise, and with the support of other healing modalities.
Why do the frequencies on the machine need to be changed?
Specific frequencies seem to induce specific effects on cells and other tissues. For example, there is a specific frequency for nerves, a different frequency for muscles, another for tendons, etc. PEMF is thought to be good for cells, muscles, tendons, and nearly every aspect of your body. In addition to each tissue having its own unique frequency, there is a specific frequency for each condition. Thus, there is a frequency for inflammation, a different frequency for scars, another to promote secretions, etc. To address the different processes required by the tissue(s) involved, we need to know what is the underlying mechanism or injury.
How long has PEMF been around?
Frequency therapy has been in use for over 75 years.
How long does it take to see results?
Many users of PEMF see results after 1 treatment session, sometimes within minutes of use. Others need repeated sessions to experience lasting results.
Do the benefits last?
Every patient responds individually but the changes to the muscles seem to be long lasting. About 60% to 80% of the changes created in one treatment last until the next treatment, about four to seven days out. Your muscles are used to being the way they are and may return to the old configuration if not treated again. Although patients have had permanent changes in one treatment, the average number of treatments depends on the complexity of the problem. We suggest implementing healthy lifestyle changes to support overall healthy functioning of the tissue.
Is there any risk?
There is no record of any permanent harm being done to anyone treated with PEMF. Although not known to be dangerous, PEMF is rarely used across the brain, in patients with pacemakers, or during pregnancy. If you have a spinal cord injury or a disc bulge pressing on your spinal cord, be sure to tell your doctor. Patients with pressure on the cord seem to have the normal side effects of treatment greatly magnified. Be sure to tell your doctor/therapist if your reaction is very severe. All of these reactions to treatment have been temporary. The biggest risk is using the PEMF for relief of symptoms when a more appropriate treatment is indicated (medications, surgery, lifestyle change, etc). This can result in delaying appropriate treatment when the condition does not improve.
What are the side effects?
Resonance appears to change the muscle tissue, removing long stored waste products and increasing cellular metabolism so quickly that there may be a detoxification reaction after treatment. Some people have similar reaction after a massage but the reaction after PEMF is stronger because we do so much in such a short period of time. The side effects can include nausea, fatigue, drowsiness, or a temporary increase in pain or a flu-like feeling. The side effects usually start about 90 minutes after treatment and may last from 4 to 24 hours. Not everyone has side effects. Some people increase range of motion and physical activity so much that they have temporary symptoms in muscles and joints near the treated area. Drinking plenty of water before and after treatment can help reduce side effects associated with PEMF.
How do I prepare for PEMF Therapy?
Drink 1 quart (four 8oz glasses) of Purified Water 2 hours prior to your appointment, and 1 more quart of Purified Water after the treatment. If you are not adequately hydrated, you may not see the desired results. If you are using a wearable PEMF device it is recommended you drink about half your body weight in water daily.
Please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing.
Try to relax during your session. Avoid scrolling or talking on your phone and if possible, silence your phone to avoid disruptions.
