Can PEMF therapy help mental wellbeing?

PEMF and the brain
PEMF therapy helps the mind much in the way it helps the body by increasing blood flow, reducing inflammation and promoting faster healing (2)
PEMF Frequencies and the Brain
Double blind studies have shown PEMF can have a positive influence on mental health, one study found that PEMF prompted greater than 10% significant improvement in mood after just one 20-minute treatment in patients (2)
Although PEMF is known to have a positive impact on mental health it works best when used alongside other positive mental health contributors such as exercise, social interaction and a healthy diet.

What about PEMF frequencies, how do they affect the mind?

Brainwave entrainment is often combined with PEMF and it is the practice of using frequencies to stimulate the brain in an attempt to adjust brain activity. (3)

PEMF programs designed to affect the mood often use certain frequencies, the dominant brainwaves are below:
gamma pemf
Beta
(14-30 Hz)
Beta waves are dominant when we are awake and our consciousness is normally alert.
beta pemf
Alpha
(9-13 Hz)
Alpha waves are dominant when we are relaxed (yet still awake) but less alert and perceptive.
alpha pemf
Theta
(4-8 Hz)
Theta waves are dominant when we are in a state of reduced consciousness such as  light and REM sleep.
theta pemf
Gamma
(30 Hz+)
Gamma waves have the highest frequencies and are dominant in states with heightened perception.
