Common Questions

Answers to the most frequent questions people ask about pulsed biofeedback

Is this a “mystical” or “new age” treatment?


We may talk about “energy” but this treatment is is not really a mystical or new age treatment. This does not mean we do not support alternative or holistic approaches to healing.

All we are saying is that this particular type of treatment has its roots in more traditional science.

Pulsed biofeedback therapy is based on the principle of electromagnetic induction and may sometimes be called “Pulsed Electromagnetic Field” (PEMF) therapy. It is part of a growing field of medicine called “energy medicine”.

Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy and energy medicine use the fundamentals of physics, biophysics, biological electronics and the role of various forms of energy such as electricity, magnetism, electro-magnetism, chemical energy, vibration and gravity.

Electrical energy in the body is already used by the medical community in well known medical ECG and EEG procedures.

An ECG (ElectroCardioGraph) is a simple procedure that picks up and records the electricity in and around the heart.

An EEG (ElectroEncephaloGraph) picks up and records the electricity in and around the brain, the so-called ‘brain waves’.

PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy) also uses the energy waves in the body. It is used to seek out and stimulate healing in damaged or “ill” waves in the body.

The study of energy medicine has become extremely engaging among both patients and physicians and is leading to techniques that will be a significant part of medicine and how we treat the body’s ailments in the future.

Some physicians are already incorporating pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) devices into their standard clinical equipment.
