The newest gadget arrives

As I wrote about previously, I am exploring one of the areas that has been on my list for a while: pulsed electromagnetic frequency therapy (PEMF). You knew it wouldn’t take long before I decided on a gadget, which I ordered and I expect to arrive today. It’s called the FlexPulse G2.

In preparation for using this device, I read a book and watched several introductory videos. I want to capture my notes here to refer back to.

Program 1 3 Hz Delta - Help with sleep/anxiety
  • Put directly under pillow or on top of pillow inside of pillowcase.
  • Use all night long at maximum intensity.
  • Can put at the back of the neck below skull to tamp down overstimulation.
Program 2 - 7.8 Hz Theta (Schuman resonance) - 70-80% of sleep is theta band
  • Meditation, relaxation, light sleep, pre-performance jitters, quieting down the brain
Program 3 - 10 Hz Alpha - neutral rhythm of the brain
  • Relaxing
  • Reset circadian rhythm
  • Healing local tissue
  • Increasing stem cells
  • Helpful for brain or tissues in the head
  • If you don’t know what else to select
  • Don’t use when you want to be alert and wide awake
Program 4 - 14 Hz Low beta Sensory Motor Rhythm
  • Idling rhythm for brain area controlling activation of muscle or extremity movements of the body. It’s a long, thin area of the brain located from the top of the head to the top of the ear on each side of the head.
  • Helps body to become more relaxed
  • Helps with relaxed attention such as reading or engaging in a relaxing hobby
  • Can improve reading speed and comprehension
  • Can help with insomnia when mind is chattery but body is relaxed
  • SMR stimulation enhances attention and may improve cognitive performance, attention, and memory
Program 5 - 23 Hz Mid beta - wide awake and alert state
  • Like a cup of coffee without caffeine
  • Use for projects, attending meetings, driving long distances, cramming for exams, pre-athletic training
  • Be careful if anxious, have a panic disorder or hyperactive or ADHD
Program 6 - 40 Hz Primary Gamma - Dominant gamma band in the brain ranges from 25-100 Hz
  • Gamma is needed for simultaneous processing of information from multiple brain areas
  • Gamma waves move rapidly from the front to the back of the brain in response to sensory inputs
  • Enhances neuroplasticity, cognitive function, attention and focus, physical task learning, and hand-eye coordination
  • Facilitates meditation and lucid dreaming
  • Improves circulation in the brain
  • Assists neurofeedback
  • Avoid Gamma training if you have anxiety, PTSD, insomnia, pain, seizure disorder or tinnitus
Program 7 - 50 Hz Mid Gamma
  • Primary power line frequency in Europe
  • Helpful for a variety of medical conditions
Program 8 - 60 Hz High Gamma
  • Primary power line frequency in US
  • Helpful for a variety of medical conditions such as arthritis and bone healing
Program 9 - Alternating every minute between 10 Hz and 100 Hz
  • Be careful when using with anxiety, panic disorder, or hyperactive
  • Recommended for musculoskeletal problems: muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, skin, and bone
  • Ideal for healing wounds/injuries
  • Generally use max intensity for as much time as you can
Program 10 999 Hz (actually 1000 Hz)
  • Primarily reserved to help with acute depression
  • Helpful for seasonal affective disorder along with Program 5
  • Uses up battery very quickly

For chronic pain, the goal is to “tune down” the brain. Best to use Programs 3, 2, and 1 in that order.

For winding down before sleep, Use Program 3 or Program 2. During sleep, use Program 1.

For pain issues at night, use Program 3 or Program 9 before bed.

For tissue healing, most of the time, use Program 3, less often Program 9. Programs 7 or 8 may be tried as well.

For memory/cognitive function, start with Program 5 or 6.


Fascinating. Will be keen to follow you on this!
