Today, most electromagnetic field therapy utilizes technology based upon Helmholtz or Tesla coils – the later named after the world famous developer of alternating current (AC) sine wave electricity – Nikola Tesla, who was born in the Austrian Empire and schooled at the Austrian Polytechnic School in Gratz.
After immigrating to the USA to begin his work as an inventor, Tesla developed our 60 Hz power distribution system and found many uses for electricity in medicine. He incorporated the Tesla Electrotherapeutic Company in 1909’s to provide medical technology to electricians and doctors that wanted to use electricity to treat a wide variety of health conditions. It’s here that the first beginnings of MAS frequency therapy came to fruition. Tesla also discovered ways to alter the powerline 60 Hz frequency to produce different health effects.
The coils Tesla used contained windings of copper, and when energized with alternating sine wave currents of electricity, they would produce an electromagnetic field. If you are near or inside this magnetic field, the electric portion of the field is absorbed into your body. An electric current is then induced into the cells of your body without the use of wires. In the picture below Tesla utilizes both induced fields in a direct series connection between himself and the patient. The strength of the field could be regulated by moving the the secondary coil closer or further from the primary coil below. Tesla combined his personal bio magnetic field to influence the healing process.

Tesla’s brand of magnetic field therapy became extremely popular to treat pain and soon commercial versions were produced and sold to the public. They utilized one 60Hz sine wave powerline frequency – the same frequency that was used to power North America. It was basically a coil of wire that was plugged into the wall. The patient would just sit inside the coil of wire to receive the treatment.

In North America, with the introduction of licensed medical universities, the American Medical Association and FDA was formed to regulate medicine. Since magnetic field therapy could not be patented and was becoming popular for use in the home, the practice of electrotheraputics was gradually omitted from medical school course curriculum and was eventually replaced with surgery and pharmacology. Doctors that used magnetic fields in their practice were considered to be “quacks.”
While the practice of professional electrotherapy fell out of favour in the western cultures, the socialist countries within the former Soviet Union continually improved upon the methods and whole hardly embraced it because of it’s low cost, few side effects and wide rage of uses. Tesla had always remained a hero in Austria, Hungary, Croatia and Serbia and their scientists and doctors altered the frequency of the sine waves to influence the various organs of the body. Tesla’s magnetic field therapy became standard use in all medical hospitals and studies on the entire populations of Eastern Europe proved that Tesla’s original sine wave magnetic field therapy was safe and effective…
Austria is world renown as the birthplace for classical music and a great body of research in the healing aspect of sound and music originates there. Born in Salzburg in 1756, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood and his music has been demonstrated to have a healing effect in scientific studies. The city of Salzburg promotes fresh air, good health and classical music as a major tourist attraction and has the highest safety ratings for wireless technology in the world. There is not a lot of electro-smog in Salzburg compared to other cities in Europe.
Listening to music while wearing large headphones has a significant effect on your subconscious mind and has been found to help with Alzheimer disease. Both the sound waves and the electromagnetic fields that are produced by the speakers inside the headphones are converted into electrical vibrations within the ear and within the brain at the same time. Headphones are a form of magnetic field therapy that are used to improve the memory of patients suffering from dimentia. Researchers have also shown full body 40 Hz vibrations can improve the memory of Alzheimer patients.
MAS Modernization – The Mat and Pillow
The next incarnation of the MAS products eliminated the restrictive round Tesla coils that you sat inside of and replaced them with an extremely durable comfortable mattress pad that contained 17 flat copper electromagnetic Tesla coils of various dimensions. This key feature of MAS allows for the various magnetic fields to be evenly displaced throughout the mat so that it can deliver an even optimized electromagnetic field that is appropriate for the desired frequency and waveform shape.
In 2008, MAS decided to modernize the design of their controller unit to allow for user friendly preset programs and incorporated the latest modulated waveforms that were realized by continued scientific research. It now incorporates the original intent of the first MAS frequency generator – to supply the true earth based 7.83 Schumann resonance and related harmonics, along with the spectrum of sound frequencies up to 9,999 Hz using a sine wave. This includes of a wide variety of other popular wave form shapes including the NASA square wave and the low intensity sawtooth waves found in several popular home PEMF devices.
If you are looking for a device that is fully programable and contains all of the most popular frequencies and waveforms – MAS is the only device on the market that offers this versatility at an affordable cost.
