Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy

According to research from Yale Medical University, the depletion of electrical energy from the body is the root cause of general unwellness. PEMF, or a pulsed electromagnetic field, is a donating source of energy that helps the body repair, regenerate, and rebuild naturally, enhancing the functionality of cells.


PEMF is a non-invasive and drug-free therapy that can help you reach your body’s full potential. 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.


Why Use Pulsed Magnetic Fields? 

  • Reduce pathogens and parasites –  by creating gentle micro currents of electricity it assists in cleansing the lymph of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other pathogens
  • Increase circulation – brings energizing oxygen-rich blood to areas targeted including vital organs, tissues & lymph.
  • Reduces pain – by increasing circulation to an area, inflammation is reduced.
  • Improves the immune system & detoxification – by targeting lymph nodes, it assists the lymph system in removing cellular waste.
  • Speeds healing – penetrates joints & bones helping to speed healing on many levels including bone fractures.
  • Ability to reduce tumors – anecdotal feedback suggests pulsed magnetic fields can help reduce tumor size.


Applying pulsed magnetic fields is simply a matter of holding a coil over the area of the body you want to target. The coil releases the magnetic field in pulses that then penetrates into the targeted area. Pulsed magnetic fields are invisible and barely perceptible if at all.

Cryo Sauna

Whole body cryotherapy, which essentially means "cold treatment," is a procedure that exposes the body to temperatures colder than negative 200 degrees F for two to four minutes. While it's been used to treat conditions such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis in Japan since the late 1970s, it's only been used in Western countries for the past few decades, primarily to alleviate muscle soreness for elite athletes, according to a 2015 paper in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews.


But now, it's being promoted by spas as a way to lose weight, improve skin, boost mood and more – despite the fact that it's not regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and isn't intended to "diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease," according to Cryohealthcare, a company that makes cryotherapy equipment.


"Cryotherapy is well-established for treatment of athletic injuries," says Dr. Jon Schriner, the medical director of the Michigan Center for Athletic Medicine in Flushing, Michigan. "To carry it into weight loss and other benefits is not mainstream."

Localized Cryotherapy

The power of the CO2 micro-crystals at a temperature of -78°C, combined with the speed of the drop in temperature and the vibration created by the jet, generates a high-intensity reaction called: THERMAL SHOCK.



External receptors of the skin are not aware of NCS (NeuroCryoStimulation) signal where as they are normally programmed to react with traditional cold treatment techniques such as ice, sprays or forced air. Accordingly, the autonomic reflex response that forms the basis of the NCS treatment is completely different and a lot more powerful.



It aims to regulate localized homoeostasis by means of mechanical and enzymatic action. The effectiveness of treatment results is achieved due to the potency of analgesic and vasomotor effects, combined with a powerful antiinflammatory effect.

Infrared Sauna



Infrared heat saunas differ from traditional steam saunas in several important ways. One of the best features of infrared saunas is that they heat the body directly. A traditional sauna heats the ambient air first and then through heat exchange, heats the body. Infrared saunas directly heat the body so they do not feel as hot as a traditional sauna. Heat intolerant clients can usually use an infrared sauna because the ambient air is not excessively hot.



Infrared saunas are dry while traditional saunas are humid. Infrared heat is preferable for people with breathing issues or who do not like humid environments. The perception of heat in an infrared sauna is also less because of the lack of humidity (think dry heat!).Th

Tourmaline and Jade Negative Ions InfraRed Pad heating mats

The power of natural jade has the ability to emit far-infrared waves of 8 -14 micron wavelength.  When the jade is heated, it emits long wave infrared rays that penetrate the body 14-15cm (5.5 to 6 inches). The rays not only benefit the muscle on the surface but all cells including blood vessels, lymph glands and nerves in the deep parts of our body.

Intersegmental Traction Therapy

Intersegmental traction works by creating passive motion that causes mild stretching of the spinal joints and improves mobility. It functions by mobilizing the spinal column while at the same time gently stretching the muscles and ligaments.

Whole body LED Light Therapy

LED light therapy has an established history of skin uses. The US Navy SEALs began using it in the 1990s to help heal wounds quickly and to help regenerate damaged muscle tissues. It’s mainly noted for increasing collagen and tissues. All of which can smooth out your skin and reduce the appearance of damage from age spots, acne, and wrinkles.  


LED light therapy is noninvasive, so no recovery time is required.  Procedures take 10 minutes at a time. You should get treated once a week for up to 10 weeks, then maintain once every few months. You may start to see minor results after your first session; however, results will be more dramatic and noticeable with successive treatments.


  

Red LED light 

Red and infrared light is used for treating the epidermis, which is the outer layer of skin. When the light is applied to your skin, the epidermis absorbs it and then stimulates collagen proteins.  More collagen makes skin look smoother and fuller, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Red LED light is also thought to reduce inflammation while improving circulation, which can give you a healthier glow. Red light can also promote hair growth.


Blue LED light  

Blue light therapy targets the sebaceous glands. Blue light therapy can target these oil glands and make them less active. In turn, you may see fewer acne breakouts. Blue light can also kill acne-causing bacteria beneath the skin, which can help treat severe acne pimples, including cysts and nodules.  

A 2018 study found that blue LED improved healing of third-degree skin burns.  Blue light therapy may also help with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).


Amber LED light 

Amber light is effective in the treatment of skin issues involving redness, such as spider veins. It excels in the treatment of problems such as sun damage. It is often considered to be an ideal therapy for sensitive skin, as its therapy is calming and soothing.  Amber light therapy is frequently recommended as a drug free alternative treatment for skin redness and flushing, irritation, rosacea, UV radiation damage, and reducing the appearance of the tiny blood vessels on the nose and face. It helps to flush waste from the skin, boost lymphatic flow, and increase cellular growth.


White LED light 

White light has the longest wavelengths and therefore goes the deepest into the skin. The white light is used for a variety of skin rejuvenating effects, including tightening and toning the skin, healing acne scars, erasing sun damage or dark spots, and reducing inflammation.



Per the journal of Seminars in Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery, RLT helps rejuvenate the skin by:

• increasing collagen production in the skin, which gives the skin its elasticity

• increasing fibroblast production, which helps produce collagen and other tissue fibers

• increasing circulation between blood and tissue cells

• protecting cells from damage

• increasing mRNA in the cells, which helps stimulate the cell

• improving facial texture

• reducing fine lines

• reducing wrinkle severity  


RLT, either alone or in combination with blue light therapy (as used at Island Wellness), can be an effective treatment for acne vulgaris. The light penetrates deep into the skin and affects sebum production while also reducing inflammation and irritation in the area.


The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy revealed that RLT improved hair density in people with alopecia.


The European Journal of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine indicates that RLT could effectively reduce pain in adults with different musculoskeletal disorders. 


The Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology indicates that RLT may help enhance bone recovery.


Do not use LED light therapy if you’re using anything on your skin that makes you sensitive to sunlight.  You also might consider avoiding this treatment if you have an active rash. Talk with your doctor if you have psoriasis. Red light therapy could help but only in conjunction with regularly prescribed treatments.
