10 Facts About PEMF Machines and What They Can Do For You
Sep 26, 2019

Reading time 4 min.

If you’re familiar with Oska Pulse, you may have read a thing or two about Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy (aka PEMF therapy). However, there’s still a lot you may have questions about—like how exactly PEMF machines work, their origin, and what types exist beyond Oska Pulse. So read on for some of these facts and more.

1. PEMF machines work in conjunction with the body’s own recovery processes to relieve pain by restoring cells’ ability to function efficiently.

Our skins, bones, and organs are composed of tiny cells. The membrane of a healthy cell has both positive and negative charges that are required for the exchange of potassium, sodium, and calcium ions. When cells become distressed from disease, trauma or toxins, they lose their ability to function efficiently. PEMF restores the positive and negative charges in the cell, enabling it to perform its natural function while speeding tissue recovery.

2. PEMF machines operate on different frequencies and this is what often sets them apart.

Everyone’s body responds differently to electromagnetic waves and different frequencies target specific tissue types. Oska Pulse emits a unique series of Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields at precise frequencies targeted on four key tissue types resulting in increased circulation, reduced inflammation, improved mobility, and relieved pain.

3. The human body requires electricity to send signals through the body and to the brain. PEMF therapy works effectively to re-align the electric potential of our cells.

Resting cells are negatively charged on the inside, while the outside of the cell is more positively charged. The flow of charges across the cell membrane is what generates electrical currents.

When a cell is stimulated, it allows positive charges to enter the cell through open ion channels. The inside of the cell then becomes more positively charged, which triggers further electrical currents that can turn into electrical pulses, called action potentials. Our bodies use certain patterns of action potentials to initiate the correct movements, thoughts and behaviors.

A disruption in electrical currents can lead to illness. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy (PEMF) can restore the disruption of the electrical current to its normal state, therefore, helping restore the cell. (source)

4. Unlike x-ray machines, PEMF wave frequencies are completely safe.

Electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) are invisible areas of energy, often referred to as radiation, that are associated with the use of electrical power and various forms of natural and man-made lighting. EMFs are typically characterized by wavelength or frequency into one of two radioactive categories:

Non-ionizing: low-level radiation which is generally perceived as harmless to humans

Ionizing: high-level radiation which has the potential for cellular and DNA damage


5. PEMF therapy has a 60+ year long track record of clinical success.

PEMF therapy has 60+ years of clinical success in relieving pain at the source by pulsing electromagnetic waves at precise frequencies, speeding the body’s recovery at a cellular level.

PEMF therapy was approved by the FDA in 1979 specifically for the healing of nonunion fractures, which came after a Columbia University study that was encouraged by NASA, and has recently gained attention in the U.S. The value of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has been shown to cover a wide range of conditions, with well documented trials carried out by hospitals, rheumatologists, physiotherapists, and neurologists.

6. PEMF technology was developed after WWII (though its origins go back much further) and was researched and adopted by NASA.

PEMF therapy actually originated from NASA’s research involving the benefits of pulsed electromagnetic fields on astronauts for fatigue, depression, bone loss and other symptoms following even short trips to outer space. Scientists discovered that the cause was due to astronauts being without this beneficial natural field emanating from our Earth. (source)

NASA did a 4-year collaborative study on the efficacy of electromagnetic fields to stimulate growth and repair in mammalian tissues. You can download the findings here.

7. Many of the first PEMF machines originated in Eastern Europe.

Prior to the invention of the first PEMF machine, Nikola Tesla created the first magnetic loop coil, which are now used in all modern PEMF machines. Some of the first devices were invented in Czech Republic and then introduced to Hungary in the 1980’s. By the late 1990’s, much of Europe was already familiar with PEMF therapy. (source) Oska Pulse originated in Australia, but is manufactured in the United States.

8. The first PEMF machine was quite large.

The original PEMF devices consisted of a Helmholtz coil—a life-size, space-age looking machine, that produced a nearly uniform region of magnetic fields. The patient was placed inside this machine to deliver treatment. Today, the majority of PEMF wellness devices resemble a yoga mat in dimensions, but are slightly thicker to house several flat spiral coils to produce an even electromagnetic field. Oska Pulse is unique in the industry in that it’s small, wearable, and travels with you. You put it directly on or near your area of pain and go about your normal activities.

9. PEMF therapy was FDA approved decades ago.

PEMF technology has been FDA approved for 25 years for bone healing, post-surgical pain and healing, pain and inflammation, knee pain and even depression. Oska Pulse is an FDA Class 1 registered device for increased circulation, decreased inflammation, improved mobility, and pain relief.

10. PEMF machines are not just for people. Animals respond to them, too!

Veterinarians became the first health professionals to use PEMF therapy, usually to heal broken legs in racehorses. In fact, our company, Oska Wellness, is named after a koala that had been badly burned in a bush fire. His whose wounds weren’t responding to treatment. The prototype of Oska Pulse was laid next to the koala, and in just three days his wounds started to heal. The koala’s name was Oscar, which sounds like Oska when pronounced with an Australian accent.

A few things are certain about PEMF machines—they’ve been around a long time, have a proven track-record to relieve pain, and are growing in popularity as more and more chronic pain sufferers are seeing results with this non-drug, non-invasive medical device. And what’s different about Oska Pulse? It’s small and lightweight, though just as effective at relieving pain as the PEMF mats and/or going in for treatments. As a one-time purchase, it’s also much more affordable. Ready to get your own or give one to a deserving friend or family member?

WORTHY - Reclaim Your Power & Wear Your Crown!

The truth is that when I became a parent my over-giving took over my life, I thought I had to be the mother, saviour and carer to everybody.
I lived to fulfill my family's and friends' needs and felt like a superwoman.
I was a full time mum, wife, entrepreneur…and felt that there wasn’t much I could not do for others but the other side of the coin was that I had come to neglect my own needs, health and business.
Everything changed the day I realised how unhealthy this constant people-pleasing and perfectionism was and how much harm I had been doing to myself.
The journey hasn’t been easy, the '𝐲𝐞𝐬 𝐰𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐧' I had previously been finally learned to use the word 'no' .
Most importantly I learned that part of the reason I had developed habit of over-giving was because deep down I did not feel worthy.
✨ Worthy to just be me
✨ Worthy to just want for me
✨ Worthy to receive the money, love and success I desired
So I embarked on a journey to heal the relationships and the root causes that created this feeling of unworthiness. The main wounds I worked on were my Parent Wound, Money Wound and my Worth Wound as they are usually the ones that block us from receiving.
I created healthy boundaries at home and work and started to ring fence '𝐌𝐄 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞' in my days. This helped tremendously on personal and business levels.
This healing and newfound self-worth has given me time, money, joy and allowed me to receive more.
If constant over-giving and feeling unworthy sounds familiar to you and you feel that this is stopping you from achieving your desires, then I have something amazing just for you!
