Best EMPpad iMRS settings

If you have purchased the iMRS system or you are thinking about doing so, you probably have a few questions about how to get started. If you are an established user we hope you also find this useful. Please also make sure to read our 10 essential tips for using the ‘iMRS’ blog post.

Getting the most out of using the iMRS system

Low level PEMF therapy works with your body, not against it, and is perfectly suited for long term use. Therefore, establishing a routine of regular daily sessions with the iMRS system is important. For many people, two daily body mat sessions can be incredibly effective and as a general rule we suggest using the iMRS first thing in the morning and again last thing at night, prior to sleep. Remember, PEMF therapy works best if your tissues are hydrated so make sure to drink two glasses of water 15-30 minutes before each session. It is also best to leave approximately 4-6 hours between each body mat session.
