Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy
The HUGO utilizes PEMF to provide immediate and long-lasting pain relief, while promoting healing and regeneration. It also works to enhance circulation and oxygenation and counteract the harmful electromagnetic radiation from the environment.
What is PEMF?
The earth, among other things, is a very large magnet with magnetic currents going through it on a regular basis. In today’s society we are constantly bombarded with additional electromagnetic rays and fields which can often disrupt the balance we would get from nature.
In Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field (PEMF) therapies, magnetic pulses are sent through the body to help regain that balance, the idea being that cells can absorb some of that energy to assist with function.
History of PEMF
Although magnets have long been used in alternative healthcare, the importance of Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Fields was first discovered when sending astronauts into space. When out of the atmosphere for any significant length of time they began, for some unknown reason, to get sick. This was fixed by setting up magnetic fields and pulses within the spacecraft.
Much research has been done regarding the strength and types of PEMF waves to send, and there are a wide variety of PEMF machines on the market, ranging in strength from very weak (to simulate the earth’s magnetic fields) to much stronger (for a quicker and greater effect).
The latest development is the HUGO, which uses a strong magnetic field in a “sandwich” approach, allowing for a more effective therapy.
How Does a Session Typically Go?
During a HUGO PEMF session, the guest lies down on the lower mat and has the upper mat placed on top (see video below). The machine is then turned on and adjusted for comfort. At the lower power settings, people typically feel nothing. At the higher settings, some can feel their muscles rhythmically contracting. For therapeutic effect, this is not in any way uncomfortable.
After the session, guests typically have less pain and feel invigorated. Increased energy may be noted immediately or possibly the next day.
