With the recent change in the clocks marking the start of British Summer Time and depriving us all of a precious hour of sleep, we are reminded of just how vital our sleep is. Yet the truth is that 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. Further to this, research shows that numerous health problems are linked to poor quality sleep including heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

We really should all take measures to improve the way we manage our sleep, and this is where the iMRS system comes in…

The iMRS system and sleep

Studies have demonstrated that PEMF therapy can improve sleep by stimulating the hypothalamus, which controls circadian and sleep rhythms. It can also help to increase slow wave sleep activity, which is the most important and restorative part of non REM sleep. Further to this, additional PEMF therapy benefits that can also enhance our quality of sleep include reduced muscle tension, improvements in circulation, and decreased stress levels.

One study which has highlighted the benefits of PEMF therapy upon sleep was carried out by Pelka (2001), who conducted a four week double blind study using 101 participants. 70% of the PEMF therapy group in this study reported a greatly significant improvement in quality of sleep, as opposed to just 2% of the control group reporting the same finding.

How has the iMRS system helped the sleep of our clients?

“I have been using the EMPpad for around six months now, and have noticed definite improvements in my sleep patterns. As a commercial long haul pilot for a leading airline, I’m regularly in the wrong time zone or trying to catch snippets of sleep. Readjusting to local time and a normal sleep pattern on return for my days off has always been quite challenging, significantly affecting the quality of time I have off with my family. Since using the pad my sleep has been longer, with less wakeful periods in the night, helping me enjoy my time off more – and be less of a bear to my family!”

Alastair, Reigate.

“I have been using the EMPpad system for around 5 months, my work involves extensive and frequent international travel and I take the system with me wherever I go. I have noticed subtle but sustained increases in my energy levels and greatly improved sleep, I find this especially helpful when trying to beat jet lag on long haul trips.”

Stephen Tulba, Bradford on Avon.

“I also noticed improvement in my sleep, which is something that has been disrupted for a long time.”

Natasza Telfer, UK.

“Yet another benefit I feel I must mention is that I sleep so much better now having been a very light sleeper who woke up several times a night, and now no longer fall asleep on the sofa at 9pm!”

Judy Connor, Retired Music Business Management.
