The ancient Chinese, Greeks and Egyptians have been documented as applying magnets to the skin to relieve pain and other symptoms for over 4,000 years. Much of the medical research into magnet therapy and its effectiveness - around 300 clinical studies - have taken place since the 1960s.
These days NASA astronauts wear magnets in their suits, since it was proposed that sickness on return to earth was caused by a deficiency of magnetism while floating around in space. Across the world, millions of people suffering from arthritis, insomnia and numerous other conditions swear by the healing power of magnets.
As the name suggests, Magnetic Therapy or Therapy with Magnets is literally the use of magnets to help provide relief from many common ailments and health problems.
Magnets can now be made very small, unobtrusive and powerful thanks to the benefits of modern technology. This makes them ideal for personal therapy use.
How Do The Magnets Work?
The body is electromagnetic in nature - we evolved in a much stronger magnetic field than we live in today. The application of a natural magnetic influence can, therefore, reinforce the body's own defence mechanisms to promote both mental and physical health. Magnets work in-tune with the body and do not provide any adverse side effects. Therefore, continuous treatment for long-term illness is possible without the fear of other health problems. Scientists have discovered that the body fluids of healthy people are alkaline (high pH) whereas the body fluids of sick people are acidic (low pH) Therapy with Magnets helps increase the pH in the body, making it more alkaline after only a few hours of exposure, which improves the efficiency of the body's own healing systems. Many alternative therapists and veterinary surgeons and now some conventional medical doctors, recommend the use of magnets.
