What is HUGO High-Intensity PEMF and how does it work

PEMF is an acronym for Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field. PEMF devices generate pulsed electromagnetic fields that induce electrical changes within and around cells, influencing their behaviour. Each cell in your body works as a battery, which 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. PEMF supports and amplifies the body’s natural abilities to optimize balanced body functions. Hig-Intensity PEMFs penetrate deeper into the body, making them more effective in a shorter amount of time.

Our HUGO High-Intensity PEMF can be used with different applicators depending on the area that needs to be targeted:

  • Full-body mats: Intended to target the entire body at once. It is possible to use only one mat under the patient, or use both mats (under the patient and on top of the patient), as a “sandwich”. With the dual-mat “sandwich” the full strength of the electromagnetic field is placed on the back and front of the body at the same time, as opposed to just one side of the body.
  • Ropes or loops: Intended to target specific areas such as ankles, knees, wrists… The large double Double Loop applicator also provides the above-mentioned “sandwich” effect, but for a smaller target area.

Each session lasts 12 minutes. During this time you can have a full body treatment, or target different areas (e.g. 3 minutes for the knee, 3 minutes for the hip, 3 minutes for the shoulder).You may feel small muscle contractions, pulsing and stimulation in certain areas, movement of the pulsing action as it stimulates different regions of the body and areas of sensitivity. These sensations can be related to pulse intensity, so notice our practitioners if you feel any discomfort. The intensity of the electromagnetic pulse can be adjusted to your tolerance by our practitioners.

Who should use HUGO High-Intensity PEMF?

We recommend it to people suffering from the following conditions:

  • Musculoskeletal disorders (osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia…)
  • Diabetic foot
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Chronic pain
  • Neurological diseases (peripheral neuropathy, depression, migraine, stroke rehabilitation)
  • Wound healing.


  • Reduces pain
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Accelerates the body’s natural healing process and helps recover faster from injuries
  • Improves circulation
  • Enhances cellular regeneration
  • Boosts cellular energy
  • Improves athletic performance

Before the session:

Drink plenty of filtered water the night before and before your appointment.

Remove all your jewellery and watches.

Make sure you are not carrying any card with magnetic strips (credit card, hotel room card…) as they can be magnetized or demagnetized

Keep all electronic devices such as cell phones, laptops, car keys… 1,5 meters away from the energy driver and applicators.

After the session:

Remember to collect all your belongings.

You may have an enjoyable experience with a range of positive sensations such as enhanced natural recovery, relaxation, and increased energy.  However, not everyone will reach those results immediately.

You may experience no noticeable change. It’s important to understand that, in some cases, it may take time for effects to accumulate. PEMF capitalizes on the body’s intelligence and incredible self-healing capabilities, encouraging the cells with natural energy to better perform their many functions. Whole-body PEMF provides a better long-term wellness solution and often yields unexpected benefits.

Some patients experience detoxification, which may cause symptoms such as headaches, brain fog, fatigue, or nausea. Detoxification is a natural process of eliminating toxins in the body, and it’s enhanced by PEMF. You may start to detox after your first session, or it could take a few sessions for your body to start detoxing. You should drink 8 ounces (250ml) of water every 2 hours throughout the day to support your system during the detox period.You boost your detoxification by enjoying a lymph drainage massage, or colon irrigation (ask our physician about your eligibility for the latter).


During your first assessment, you will be required to fill out our intake form and agree to our terms, for us to determine the best path to your long-term wellness.

Detox Reaction

It is very important to drink plenty of water before and after a HUGO session, as well as throughout the rest of the day and the days that follow. Drinking water helps your body to flush out toxins. It is important to note that detoxifying the body too fast, especially if there are many toxins present, can overload the body's avenues of elimination. These include the kidneys, liver, colon, lymph system, skin, and lungs. When these organs are impaired, then even mild detoxification methods can overload the remaining elimination organs. Overloading these systems can result in a detox reaction or "cleaning crisis." You may experience anything from flu-like symptoms to a skin rash. It is the body's way of trying to get rid of toxins. While ultimately a detox reaction is a sign of a good thing, it can still be an unpleasant experience. It is much easier to get through when you support your body's normal elimination systems. When these organs are working well, and there is sufficient water and nutrient intake, then most detox reactions pass quickly, and sometimes even go unnoticed! This is why it is very important to drink plenty of water and take supplements, to help support the liver, kidneys, colon, and other elimination systems. Be sure to do this if you find yourself experiencing a detox reaction.
