Understanding the Key Differences Between PEMF Therapy Machine and TENS Machine

What is PEMF Therapy?

Pulsed electromagnetic field is the abbreviation for PEMF. Electromagnetic waves of varying frequencies are emitted by devices that use pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) technology. These waves promote and encourage the body’s natural healing process. You are probably curious about how the Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) technology may benefit your body when other electromagnetic fields, such as those created by microwaves and x-ray devices, are harmful.

The phrase “frequency and duration make all the difference” comes from the book Bulletproof. The electromagnetic waves produced by PEMF devices have a very low frequency and come in brief bursts, like the electromagnetic waves present in nature.

The energy waves used in good a PEMF machines have low frequencies of 30 Hertz and below as found in nature. The planet earth magnetic field is 7.83 Hertz. Using earth-based frequencies and with right PEMF machine that gives a clear wave signals, travel deep into the body.

PEMF Health Benefits

PEMF therapy is an easy, safe, and effective method that can enhance your quality of life by promoting wellness, treating pain, reducing recovery times, and overall health. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy provides several positive health effects, including the following:

  • Bone healing
  • Enhances immunological response
  • Circulation and micro circulation
  • Encourages appropriate cell activity
  • Lessens swelling, pain, and inflammation

The treatment of small household pets, pain relief for dogs, cats, as well as large livestock animals and humans, has been accomplished through PEMF therapy. The use of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) as a treatment for various health conditions, such as depression, healing of non-union bone fractures, and muscle stimulation, has been granted FDA approval.

Buying a PEMF machine is a worthy investment because it can be used by the whole family. Veterinarian bills for a dog and cat are expensive so this alone will save you money when owning a device.  

Quality varies on all PEMF machines, cheap models are made in China, quality models are made in Germany.

What is TENS therapy?

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a pain relief method that uses low-voltage electrical currents to interfere with pain signals in the body. A form of pain treatment, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), can be used to alleviate both chronic and acute pain.

Electrical current is transmitted via the skin via electrodes attached to a portable TENS unit, which runs on batteries. Electrode pads are placed on the skin to deliver electric currents. By electrical current, pain receptor signals can be prevented from reaching the brain.

Since electrical currents are introduced to the body via transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation therapy, it is classified as a form of electrotherapy.

Health benefits of TENS

Nerve Retraining

If a nerve is damaged, it can no longer transmit or receive messages. Because of this, moving around becomes painful and difficult. Because of the accompanying pain, movement weakens as a result.

The stimulation of the nerves causes the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. The body’s natural painkiller is the best method for relieving pain.

The client’s brain and nervous system can be retrained by the stimulus that activates their muscle with adequate time and treatment.

No Adverse Reactions

Unfortunately, if your everyday life of has pain, you’ll have to learn to accept even greater pain in the future. Constipation, drowsiness, vomiting, dizziness, nausea, liver failure, digestive issues, and respiratory depression are some of the adverse effects of taking pain medication.

Most people now a days will search for a natural therapy to relieve their pain issues, or at least to minimize the use of taking pain killers. Some people have stopped taking painkillers because of a TENS and a PEMF machine.


Financial pain follows physical pain. A lifetime supply of painkillers is expensive. Financially and comfortably, a simple one-time investment can improve life.

A TENS unit are light weight and easy to use. Place the sticky pads in the area of pain and start the TENS treatment. The pads need to have direct contact to the skin. Unfortunately a TENS can only treat one body part at a time.

What is the Difference Between PEMF and TENS

Although both PEMF and TENS treatments aim to alleviate pain, they do so in very different ways.  The main difference between TENS and PEMF lies in their mode of action.

TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) works by blocking pain signals, whereas PEMF pulse therapy or PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) therapy helps the body heal and recover from injury.

TENS uses microcurrents that run just below the skin surface, whereas PEMF machines produce magnetic fields that can penetrate deep inside the entire body.

TENS requires direct skin contact, while PEMF can be performed even if the patient is fully clothed. Pulsed electromagnetic fields has no impedance.

TENS machines are designed to treat only one part of the body at a time, using two to four sticky pads, while PEMF whole-body mats can treat all body parts simultaneously.

TENS has been observed to irritate the skin and, in some circumstances, leave burn marks in parts where the electrodes make direct contact with the skin, where as a PEMF applicator only needs to be near the body for the magnetic fields to penetrate.

Similarities Between PEMF And TENS

Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) can be beneficial for various conditions, including the treatment of bone and joint pain and the strengthening of muscles.

Most therapists and integrated doctors use PEMF machines in their practice. The price of a PEMF treatment is about $1 a minute, $60 for 60 minutes. A TENS on the other hand can be bought online for around $150 therefore it is better option to buy one. 


The mechanisms of action of PEMF devices and TENS units are quite different, and their applications differ considerably. PEMF devices gives the energy for the body to facilitate healing for relieving pain, while TENS units are mainly used for pain management and blocking the pain signals.

Quoted from the book The Body Electric, PEMF therapy is the king of all energy medicine.  Please call us on 0414 644120 or international +61 414644120 for more information on the best PEMF machines for your health. We have available high-tech, high-quality German made PEMF machines to rent and buy.
