Frequently Asked Questions
- QWHAT IS MAGNAWAVE?A
MagnaWave offers wellness options, include PEMF machines. Pulsed electromagnetic fields are used to cover low energy cells in raw, pure energy. Each cell in your body is actually just like a battery, which are called capacitors, that holds a charge. Your entire body is electrical and your cells each need a measurable electrical charge to function optimally. In order to maintain good wellness, cells must be doing their jobs. MagnaWave supports the body’s natural wellness state to optimize balanced functions.
- QIS PEMF SAFE FOR EVERYONE TO USE?A
MagnaWave machines are not medical devices and do not treat or cure diseases or their symptoms. You should always ask your doctor before using any type of PEMF machine. PEMF machines should not be used by anyone with a battery implanted device, such as pacemakers, cochlear impacts, intrathecal pumps, etc. Magnetic field are known to interfere with these devices.
- QHOW LONG HAS MAGNAWAVE BEEN USED OR BEEN AVAILABLE?A
PEMF technology has existed for hundreds of years, dating back to somewhat primitive civilizations, and has been used for a variety of purposes, including seed germination. MagnaWave was founded in 2002, and has been providing an avenue for wellness ever since, using only top-of-the-line equipment and thorough certification training.
- QIS PEMF APPROVED BY THE FDA?A
While that’s not a measure of its effectiveness, PEMF is actually approved by the FDA for the treatment of depression. Beyond the FDA, there are other mainstream uses for PEMF. Our own space agency, NASA, received a U.S. patent for the application of PEMF on enhancing tissue repair in animals. The research found that PEMF stimulates the growth of the fiercely researched stem cells.
- QARE MAGNAWAVE DEVICES APPROVED BY THE FDA?A
Currently, MagnaWave products are not regulated under the FDA. They are to be used as massage like instruments, there is no medical benefit claim currently assigned to their use. In general, PEMF is designed to support overall health and well-being in humans and animals. This website and the information featured, showcased or otherwise appearing on it is not to be used as a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis or treatment of any health condition or problem.
- QWHAT ARE THE VETERINARY REGULATIONS IN MY STATE?A
Each state has their own veterinary regulations which may or may not mention PEMF. You can find the most up to date list of these here.
- QWHY HIGH VOLTAGE HIGH INTENSITY PEMF AS COMPARED TO LOW VOLTAGE?A
PEMFs will pass completely through the body whether it is of high or low intensity. Every person is built differently, therefore the intensity of one person may vary from another’s. The difference is the amount of charge the field will stimulate in your tissues as it is passing through the body.
Higher voltage is more effective when low voltage isn’t enough. High voltage PEMF also produces a sensation that patients can actually feel which helps reassure them the device is working.

- QDOES THE PURCHASE INCLUDE A TRIAL PERIOD?A
No, however all machine purchases include a 30 day money-back guarantee less a restocking fee and we do have a rental program. View more details on our Rental Program for more information.
- QWHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS DURING A PEMF SESSION?A
The blood oxygen is increased, lymphatic system is activated and acupuncture points are stimulated. This process reduces pain and inflammation and promotes healing. The oxygenation of the blood helps relieve inflammation, all pain is caused by inflammation, if we can relieve the pain and swelling, the body can begin to heal naturally.
- QWHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY FIRST SESSION?A
A PEMF session can vary from one person to another. Diet, lifestyle, your level of activity, hydration, general health, stress levels and the quality of your nutrition all contribute to how it will work and how you will feel after your sessions. MagnaWave can help you feel energized, and this feeling can build for a few hours after a session. It is important to keep track of how you are feeling and for how long after each session. It tells your doctor how many sessions you’ll need to achieve your goals.
If you feel tired after a session, this may be due to a detox reaction. Your body wants to clean house and is getting rid of toxins. Resting and drinking plenty of fluids may support this detox reaction. Patients should talk to their doctors if this situation occurs.
- QWHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT THE FIRST TIME YOU USE PEMF?A
Depending on your current state of health and wellness, you can expect to feel an overall sense of well-being. Just like any other treatment, the way your body responds will vary from one person to another. There are lots of factors that influence this, including diet, lifestyle and your level of physical activity. We advise checking with your doctor to make sure MagnaWave is right for you.
In some cases, people using MagnaWave for the first time say they feel a sense of fatigue. This may be your body’s response to ridding itself of toxins. If you experience detox after a PE<F session, we advise to take in plenty of fluids and plenty of rest.
- QHOW LONG DOES A SESSION TAKE?A
Normal treatment time is 20 to 30 minutes for a horse and can vary for humans and small animals.
- QWHAT DO I REMOVE BEFORE A PEMF SESSION?A
Make sure you check your pockets and person and remove jewelry, watches, cell phones, credit cards and car key fobs. Place them about a foot away from the device.
- QHOW LONG WILL RESULTS LAST?A
Results can last a day or weeks depending on the problem. In a show situation, one or two treatments per week is normally sufficient.
- QWHY PEMF THE WHOLE BODY WHEN THE PROBLEM IS IN ONE AREA?A
By increasing the blood oxygen in the whole body, the sensitive area continues to be helped as super oxygenated blood from the rest of the body continues to flow through the area.
- QHOW DOES PEMF SHOW WHICH AREAS ARE SENSITIVE?A
Muscle tissue palpitates in sensitive areas because of super oxygenation and molecule movement in the cells. This is all explained in-depth in our certification training.
- QCAN PEMF BE USED PRE-EVENT?A
Yes, but at the trainer or athlete’s discretion. However, we recommend that you try it on the client ahead of time, since different animals and people react differently to a session. We have found that some clients are more relaxed after their session, so they might not have the same edge before an event. Other clients are not affected in that way and are ready to perform. So again we recommend you try it on your client before a breeze or practice to measure performance and decide for yourself.
- QWHEN CAN THE ATHLETE/HORSE BE WORKED AFTER A PEMF SESSION?A
Immediately, there is no recovery time. Results are immediate with continued improvement over time with additional PEMF sessions.
- QWHAT IS THE COST PER MAGNAWAVE SESSION?A
Normal full body sessions are $125.00 for horses but prices can vary by state. A human or small animal treatment is usually $45 to $50.
- QCAN YOU USE PEMF ON PEOPLE WITH STENTS OR METAL IMPLANTS?A
Yes. While the magnetic field will not go through metal it will go around implants to the surrounding tissue.
- QWHERE CAN I PURCHASE A MAGNAWAVE DEVICE?
- QDOES MAGNAWAVE HAVE THE NEWEST PEMF EQUIPMENT?A
Yes. We are always selling the most up to date and cutting edge PEMF machines, we have analog and digital machines with varying strengths. We are constantly innovating to bring our clients the latest technology available.
- QIS MAGNAWAVE THE SAME AS OTHER MAGNETIC THERAPY BLANKETS AND BOOTS?A
While the therapy is similar, the difference is in the delivery method, power and how they yield a deeper penetration. The higher power of MagnaWave provides shorter treatment times and immediate results. What the blankets can do in 2 to 3 weeks, the MagnaWave Maxx machine can do in 10 minutes!
- QWHAT ARE THE TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS FOR YOUR SYSTEMS?A
MagnaWave produces all the power you will ever need. Our systems are fully adjustable in terms of magnetic field strength from low-to-high and each incremental change reflects a change in the gauss. The gauss is understandably varied based on the accessory being used and the settings.
For specific specifications on individual MagnaWave devices, you can view that on their respective product pages.
- QHOW MANY AMPS DO YOUR DEVICES DRAW?A
The MagnaWave Maia provides up to 50 to 60 hz of power and generates a magnetic wave more than 4 times stronger than any digital PEMF machine in the world.
- QWHAT WAVEFORMS ARE USED?A
MagnaWave devices produce an impulse to create every pulse as a singular unique electromagnetic event. The impulse creates rectangular waves that “ring out” with saw tooth waves.
- QWHICH MAGNAWAVE DEVICE IS THE MOST POWERFUL?
- QARE MAGNAWAVE DEVICES PRODUCING AC (ALTERNATING CURRENT) OR DC (DIRECT CURRENT)?A
The electricity that’s in the walls of all houses or buildings is AC current. That current goes into the machine where it is converted to DC– that is what travels into the accessory and gets delivered into the body. DC moves the current in one direction. Your body’s nervous system is also a DC system.
- QDO MAGNAWAVE DEVICES HAVE AUTOMATIC POLARITY SWITCHING?A
Yes. The field has a push-pull action on ion flow, aiding both inward and outward movement of ions through the cell membrane as it rises and collapses. This means the field generated is bipolar and reverses with each pulse.
- QDO MAGNAWAVE DEVICES PRODUCE HEAT?A
Yes, but it produces such a small amount of heat that it is not noticeable.
- QWHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PEMF AND ELECTROSMOG?A
Electrosmog describes the artificially created electrical, magnetic, and electromagnetic fields that first began developing with the rollout of the electrical grid a century ago. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field devices should not to be compared to 50/60 Hz electromagnetic radiation around high voltage power lines and transformers, which induce a continuous electromagnetic field.
The goal of PEMF devices is to produce a magnetic field that penetrates the body and supports its natural functions. This requires a very long wavelength and low frequency. Most PEMF devices produce frequencies in the extremely low frequency to very low frequency range on the electromagnetic spectrum, much closer to the earth’s frequencies, are non-ionizing and have been used safely around the world for decades in clinical environments.
- QCAN YOU USE MAGNAWAVE ON TWO PATIENTS AT THE SAME TIME?A
Every person is different and therefore will have different tolerance levels. While technically this can be done it is not recommended if you are looking for optimal results.
- QI AM TRYING TO COMPARE OTHER PEMF DEVICES WITH YOURS, HOW DOES YOURS COMPARE?A
No other manufacturer has the proven results that MagnaWave has or can match the power, consistent results, and ease-of-use as our devices provide. MagnaWave devices have the longest warranty in the industry, with a 3 year manufacturer and a 7 year extended at no additional cost. MagnaWave also provides machine specific training and an education service like no other. See the MagnaWave difference here.
- QHOW MUCH SPACE DO I NEED FOR ONE OF YOUR SYSTEMS?A
The amount of space you need would depend on your specific choice of system and accessories. MagnaWave devices weigh between 17-25 lbs and typically do not take up much more room than a normal size suitcase.
- QWHO DO I CONTACT IF I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH MY MAGNAWAVE DEVICE?A
Have a question? Contact us via phone or email
Please contact us for more information.
- QCAN I SELL MY MACHINE TO SOMEONE ELSE?A
You absolutely are able and allowed to sell your machine to someone else as long as you own it, if you are renting or leasing from us or one of our banks you are not allowed to sell until the agreement is completed. The new owner still has to enroll and complete necessary certification to use the machine. Also, the warranty is not automatically transferred to the new owner, but can easily be transferred for a fee of $25 ahead of time. Let us know and we can help you through the process. If you sell the machine and do not notify the company then we can not honor the warranty. This is a safety precaution to protect our clients in case their machine is stolen.
- QDOES MY WARRANTY AUTOMATICALLY TRANSFER IF I SELL MY MACHINE?A
The warranty does not stay with the machine, but with the individual, so for a $25 fee, the warranty can easily be transferred to a new owner. However, that person still has to enroll and complete necessary certification to use the machine.
