PEMF mat therapy update

Ponieboy profile image

So I finished my pemf mat therapy and here is what I experienced. While on the mat my tremors would stop on average 10 minutes into a session. The sessions would last 30 minutes to 1 hour. I started at the lowest setting and worked my way up. I used the unit daily. I also noticed that my tremors would go quiet for 30 minutes to a bout 2 hours after the sessions. I had to go out of town one weekend for a friend's memorial service one weekend ( he was killed riding his bicycle training to ride with me on a 100 mile ride) I upped the settings to max 2 days before I left and noticed the next day I had virtually no tremors the next two days. I should have been shaking because of the amount of stress and anxiety I was under. This actually continued for 3 days. My boss at work even noticed that my tremor wasn't active. The mat also worked great for my frequent head aches that I have.

I returned the mat to my therapist who kindly let me use it and give her fwed back on it. I have since had my rytary upped and I have noticed that my tremor has been greatly reduced. So I feel between the med increase, the mat usage and exercise i have made progress. I will be using the mat on and off in the future as well as trying some alternative therapies for anxiety and stress management. I volunteered as my therapist guinea pig for many of these. Next is near infrared light therapy, and a tesla device. So I will keep adding updates as I keep using the mat .

This is just my experience with the pemf therapy, so this may not work for everyone but if you have access to one its worth the try.

What type (brand / model) PEMF did you use? I’m looking in to potentially acquiring one. Thank you for sharing your experience.

Neuro, Not sure what your budget is but I’ve been looking at this company’s full size mat. But it may not be as good:miramate.com/product-catego...

It’s a bit of a dilemma.

Thank you Godiv! Interesting! (I’m embarrassed my username name is Neuro! I did not mean to change it to that! I was curious if it was taken so I tried it and it won’t let me switch back. Please call me Newbie or Hey You or anything else! ☺️ ).

I never even thought about that. Well I know you don’t want it but you do a lot of research; you are kind of a Neuro :). But that’s OK. I understand.

With the mat: I’m a little worried about the lesser one. It’s not cheap but it’s probably a cheaper one so I am not sure what to do. I’ve got to get some thing. I’ve got body pain. Lots of body pain.

If you’re at all interested, let me know what you think of the cheaper mat. I’ll try to make you do my research ha ha. No worries if not.

Thanks, now I want to call you newt! Trying to think of me start with new. Newly. That’s all I can think of LOL.

It’s on my homework list! For pain have you considered an acupressure mat? I’m looking in to that.

I have an acupressure mat. I got it when I hurt my back years ago. It’s really strange when you first lie down on it like wow! Little things sticking into you. It’s all the little prongs. And they really don’t pierce your skin or actually terribly hurt either. It was OK. I didn’t really love it that much. However, at the time, I was trying it for something that was so acute. My expectations were probably a little high.

And those mats get great reviews. It’s probably an individual thing. It may work really well for you. Definitely definitely worth investigating. Let me know. I’ll be curious to see what you think and thank you for thinking of it for me anyway. :)

Hi Godiv, did you buy a PEMF mat to help with your pain? If so, which one did you buy and has it helped?Thanks

Godiv in reply to glenandgerry

I haven’t. I’m sorry not to have more information. I’ve been looking at this one: miramate.com/product/big-ma... I keep looking for coupons or specials. And I don’t really know if it is a good one. They do give you $15 off if you sign up for email. But it’s still rather pricey. For me anyway.

Have you looked into any of them?

I’m overthinking it now. And I’m not doing anything while I dither! :(

Still thinking, but looking to see the PEMFit therapist once or twice a week to see if hubby notices any improvement before deciding to purchase a mat

It might also be interesting to see what the expert thinks of the home mats. Some folks say they’re not strong enough but those are sometimes the people trying to sell you the professional mats.

Yes, indeed. Have already had a free session with the therapist and he said the home mats aren't strong enough but then he is trying to sell his professional services.He said you'd have to lay on the home mat all day to gain the same benefit as 50 mins using his 'industrial strength' mat/machine.

Oh gosh. It’s kind of difficult for people to go to an office for a treatment multiple times on and on. It’s so much easier to have equipment at home. But it does definitely make you pause. I need to go back to what Pony boy said. I think he was the original poster. It’s so confusing!

OK, I had forgotten that ponieboy used a professional mat. It probably is good to have a therapist there. I wonder if the professional mats are different or have something more than even the super duper expensive home mat. I’m thinking of the ones that are in the thousands. But probably doesn’t really matter. But I’m so glad you brought it up because I was a little confused and would’ve bought some thing that probably wouldn’t of worked. So thank you!

Thank you for the update! I look forward to your future testing results!

Ponie boy, hi. Your PEMF mat results are very encouraging. Could you please indicate how you used the mat? That is, was it under or around your hands? Or did you position it under your legs, back, neck or head?

I would lay flat on my back, hands by my side or crossed on my chest. The mat also had an accompanying head rest that also generated a pulse.

You must’ve read my mind. I was going to ask about that. But wow the mats are so expensive. I mean for me. Maybe some of the less expensive models work. But anyway thank you. It’s encouraging news.

Hey Ponieboy, are you still using the PEMF mat and getting good results?My PWP had a free 50 minute session with a therapist at PEMFit here in the UK. I am just trying to work out if it is worth paying £80 per session to continue. The PEMFit machine is industrial size - therapist said one would have to lay on a home mat all day to glean the same results. Not sure if that's true or just sales speak!

Still mulling it over and trying to find evidence that PEMF works for Parkinson’s, pain, anxiety, double vision, brain fog, etc.

Hi, sorry for the late reply. I have been extra busy with work, and helping my wife. April she had a quadruple bypass and recently showed signs of a stroke.

I still have access to the mat I only use it maybe twice a month now. I now have to pay for services. When I do use it I find temporary relief of my tremors for a few hours afterwards. So its mixed results at best. The sessions are pricey but so is the mat. So I get it. I wish I could use it more but as we all know Parkinsons is expensive. I am currently back to yoga 4x a month and walking. Trying to get back into cycling but still have some mental blocks to go through.

Thank you
