The pulsed electro-magnetic field provided by the MagnaWave is cellular exercise, working to restore the cells of the muscles and connective tissues to optimal functioning. Especially in the initial hours following a workout, and randomly throughout the next days, I’m noticing my abdominal muscles tightening, performing the inward and upward draw towards my spine, mimicking the exercises on their own! Combine that with what I know of muscle memory from psychology, and I’m convinced Dynamic PEMF Fitness will provide rapidly increased results, boosting the benefits far beyond PEMF or exercising alone. I only measured a loss in my waist and hips; ½ inch off both after just two 20-minute sessions in one week! Dynamic PEMF for Diastasis Recti could actually repair the stressed condition of your muscles and connective tissues in the abdomen!

Kelly Dean, MPT, of The Tummy Team, does a great job describing diastasis recti in her YouTube video posted here. Diastasis recti is a common contour abnormality affecting the anterior abdominal wall; often associated with a negative body image, low back pain, and occasionally urology or gynecological symptoms.  Diastasis recti is the partial or complete separation of the rectus abdominis, or “six-pack” muscles, which meet at the midline of your stomach, affecting the Linea Alba or connective tissue ( Diastasis recti is common in both women and men. Excessive inner-abdominal pressure causes diastasis recti. During pregnancy, your abdominal muscles and connective tissues are stretched out from your expanding uterus. It also occurs in middle aged and older men and women with abdominal obesity. The most notable symptom of diastasis recti is a noticeable pooch in your stomach. This pooch is caused by weakness and separation of the muscles in the mid-abdomen. In some cases, it can result from lifting heavy weights incorrectly or performing excessive or unsafe abdominal exercises ( &

Many conventional abdominal exercises such as sit-ups and crunches can worsen diastasis recti. The foundation of diastasis recti repair is learning to control your abdominal muscles while performing the exercises and continuing to breathe. The Transverse Abdominis literally looks and acts like a corset, wrapping horizontally around the torso and spanning the space between the ribs and the hips. It functions to compress the abdominal wall, supporting your internal organs and lumbar spine as you bend, twist, lift and move ( It is essential to “zip up” your corset by activating these core muscles, drawing them inward towards the midline and spine. All exercises for diastasis recti should be performed with this “vacuum” effect happening in your core. I’ve added two YouTube videos to my playlist at that explain how to check for and measure a diastasis recti and the correct techniques for performing the exercises including “zipping up” and “vacuum”.
