Sleep is important to our health. Very important. Yet while experts agree that getting good quality sleep is vital, we simply do not get enough of it. In fact, nearly half of us are getting just six hours sleep or less a night, and an alarming four out of five people complain of disturbed or inadequate sleep.
The pace of modern life is often cited as a major contributor to the reduced quality of our sleep that we experience, with the abundant use of smartphones, computers and late night television ensuring that we are not good at switching off when we need to. Research has shown that there are numerous health problems linked to poor quality sleep, including heart disease, stroke and diabetes, so we really should all take measures to improve the way we manage our sleep.
PEMF therapy and Sleep
Low level PEMF therapy, such as delivered by the iMRS system, can help. Studies have shown that PEMF therapy can improve sleep by stimulating the hypothalamus, which controls circadian and sleep rhythms, and can also help to increase slow wave sleep activity, the most important and restorative part of non REM sleep.
There are additional benefits to using low level PEMF therapy that can also enhance our quality of sleep. These include reduced muscle tension, improvements in circulation, and decreased stress levels; PEMF therapy can induce a relaxation effect upon the nervous system, helping to ‘entrain’ brainwave and autonomic nervous system activity into a calmer state when used prior to sleep.
One such study which has highlighted the benefits of PEMF therapy on sleep was carried out by Pelka (2001), who conducted a four week double blind study using 101 participants. 70% of the PEMF therapy group reported greatly significant improvement in quality of sleep, as opposed to just 2% of the control group reporting the same finding.
