How You Can Enhance Circulation and Blood Oxygen Levels with Electromagnetic Therapy
While yoga is an ancient practice that can be performed with no special tools or equipment, new technology is offering benefits to the yoga practitioner who is looking to supercharge their practice.
Technology is changing the way we think about our health, challenging our understanding of the human body, and empowering us to reach optimal physical condition. Fitness and recovery tools like Fitbits, cryotherapy, and dynamic air compression are making massive waves in the health and wellness world. But recently, a relatively new yet proven technology has exploded onto the scene and won the love of professional athletes, extreme sports competitors, and fitness influencers from all over the world.
A safe, user-friendly device that anyone can use in the comfort of their own home to optimize their health, performance, and recovery in minutes. A device that sends a low-intensity pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) into the body to safely stimulate healthy muscles, which temporarily enhances local blood flow, resulting in better disbursement of oxygen within the target tissues while supporting the elimination of carbon dioxide.
A Revolution of Recovery
There’s a revolution happening in the world of injury prevention, recovery, and performance right now that has important applications for yoga. The revolution is centered around a heavy focus on optimizing the body to prevent injury, maximize performance, and encourage mindfulness, and there’s one driving factor that can make all the difference: improved circulation.
During a yoga session, the body works hard to supply the muscles with oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to fuel your practice. Afterward, it sends vital resources to the exhausted muscle tissue to repair and help it grow stronger. Electromagnetic therapy plays a big role in this process by stimulating muscles, helping to increase blood flow, and therefore oxygen, to the target tissues. With an increased supply of oxygen and nutrients, your muscles can recover faster, perform better, and help you take your yoga practice to the next level.
Speaking of elevating your practice, the ability to do increasingly-complicated yoga poses requires optimal flexibility, and optimal flexibility relies on enhanced circulation. Stimulating healthy muscles with an electromagnetic pulse temporarily improves local blood flow and facilitates muscle performance, resulting in an amplified yoga practice.
Besides optimal flexibility, enhanced circulation means oxygenated red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients through the arteries and capillaries to all the organs of the body more efficiently. An advanced yogi benefits from enhanced blood oxygen and nutrient delivery to the cells because this also translates to a faster turnover of carbon dioxide and waste products to the red blood cells, and an efficient elimination and detox process through the venous system and out of the body.
Reducing Stress Through Electromagnetic Therapy
Yoga isn’t just about the time you spend on the mat. The core principles of yoga serve as a guide to living a balanced, healthy life, and interacting with the world around you in an honorable and peaceful way. That being said, both your mental and physical health have a huge impact on how you show up in the world. If you’re weighed down by stress, health issues, or low energy, you may find it difficult to follow the yogic path. But with daily use, this recovery technology can help improve your energy levels, vitality, relaxation, and overall well-being. When you’re feeling (and performing) your best, you can better embody the core values that fuel your practice as a yoga practitioner.
With all the other warm-up and recovery methods yogis might try — hot and cold therapy, stretching, foam rolling, sports massages, et cetera — what makes electromagnetic therapy special? Think of it like a wireless phone charger for your body. A pulsed electromagnetic field stimulates electrical activity within the cells and increases muscle blood circulation, temporarily boosting nutrient and oxygen delivery.
When you add this therapy to your yoga practice, you may notice significant improvements in your physical strength and conditioning, recovery, strength, flexibility, and a heightened sense of relaxation. Not to mention, it’s refreshingly easy to use at home or on the go, allowing you to access these benefits wherever your journey takes you.
Yoga Practice as part of a Wellness-Based Lifestyle
What’s your idea of a great yoga practice? For many, it’s practicing mindfully, enjoying movement, and developing a healthy body and spirit. With electro-magnetic therapy, you can empower your body to recover faster, free your mind from stress, and re-energize your spirit. That way, you can be present and enjoy each moment of your yoga practice to the fullest.
