No, the “Electric Taco” doesn’t come paired with a sweet, frozen margarita and a side of queso. The “Electric Taco” is actually much better for your body…and no carbs!
Thanks to Tony Robbins, the term “Electric Taco” is the nickname of a high frequency PEMF mat called the Hugo. Now wait a minute, what is PEMF? Well, I’m glad you asked!
PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. PEMF devices have been around since the 1980’s but magnetic therapies have been around for thousands of years when people discovered that using lodestones (magnetic rocks) could relieve pain and promote healing, both physically and mentally. While some people may prefer to continue using stones for healing, we at Bluestem Wellness prefer the “Electric Taco” (sounds more fun, right?).
Did you know our bodies are filled with trillions of cells? According to Amber Plante from the University of Maryland Graduate School, “Our cells are specialized to conduct electrical currents. Electricity is required for the nervous system to send signals throughout the body and to the brain, making it possible for us to move, think and feel.” This means that any time our cells become weak or something interrupts their electrical current, we may become ill. Using a PEMF device can, in a sense, recharge your weak cells to encourage them to heal and relieve pain. It’s like charging your body’s battery!
There are many different types of PEMF devices on the market today ranging from low to high frequencies, depending on your needs. The “Electric Taco”, specifically, is a high frequency device that uses two mats, one that you lay on and one that covers you like a blanket. This taco-effect helps with the efficiency of electrical currents stimulating your body and promotes quicker symptom-relief. The great part is that every person feels the tingling sensation of electricity in the exact areas where they have the most inflammation; it’s a completely individualized experience. Twelve minutes on this mat reduces your pain, inflammation, and even boosts your energy levels! Who needs coffee when you can have the same effects from laying horizontal for 12 minutes!
I won’t dive too far into the science behind the frequencies and different types of wavelengths of PEMF, but something worth mentioning is the fact that PEMF counteracts the harmful electromagnetic radiation that we all are hit with every day thanks to cell phones, microwaves, power lines, and so on…you know, all the bad stuff.
More benefits from PEMF include increased blood flow, reduced depression and anxiety, enhanced cellular metabolism, detoxification, muscle stimulation, and so much more! It can also be used for workout recovery because it helps repair microtears in muscles after a hard workout to help reduce the likelihood of extreme soreness.
Can anyone use it? Unfortunately, no. You may not use any PEMF device if you have a pacemaker, if you’re pregnant, have metal implants (certain types are okay), or have a history of seizures.
Within a world that’s evolving heavily towards self-care, healing naturally, and alternative therapies, the “Electric Taco” is a must-try. It’s convenient, relaxing, and unique.
