How Does EMTT Work?

Like many of our treatments, EMTT makes use of potent technology, but the way it works is fairly straightforward.

  • EMTT is a non-invasive, outpatient procedure. It uses no anesthesia and a simple handpiece to deliver a high oscillation frequency, so its magnetic pulses penetrate deeply and quickly to produce powerful healing effects.
  • Each treatment session takes between 10 and 15 minutes, and they can occur twice weekly for up to 8 sessions in a 4-week period.
  • As an FDA-cleared technology, EMTT has the backing of numerous scientific studies, with extensive clinical testing to demonstrate its overall effectiveness.
  • There are virtually no side effects. The treatment works quickly for most, and you’ll be able to walk and return to normal activity shortly afterward.
  • Patients who are pregnant or have pacemakers should avoid EMTT.
