Magnetic therapy increases blood through a magnet and the electromagnetic fields within the body. A magnet is placed on certain parts of the body and activates positive and negative blood cells; the result is faster flowing blood. So why does this matter? Well, an increased blood flow will bring more oxygen to the specific area which is a form of natural healing. There is no scientific evidence to support this alternative therapy but many people enjoy health benefits when they are using magnetic therapy. Magnetic therapy is Pseudoscience. Regardless of the actualities and workings of magnetic therapy there are no adverse side effects.

What is magnetic Therapy used for?

Mostly, magnetic therapy is used to relive chronic pain. The success rate of magnetic therapy depends on the research you are reading. Some studies found that a large number of patients that used magnetic therapy experienced a reduction of total absence of pain while other studies show no improvement from the presence of a magnet. It is argued that the success of magnetic therapy is largely connected to proper usage. Some believe that when magnetic therapy is used correctly the benefits are in abundance.

What does it involve?

Magnets are placed on the body, directly to the skin over the area of pain. Often the magnet is attached to a bracelet, a necklace or attached to adhesive patches. Sometimes these magnets are used a singles and other times they are used in groups. Magnets can be placed in belts or in bands to be wrapped around the waist or they can be wrapped around the thigh, knee, ankle or foot. If the pain is not reduced after several days of wearing the magnet then it is a good idea to readjust the area of placement. As there are no side effects you can decide to be exposed to your magnets all the time or for periods of time.

Also there are magnetic products such as chairs, mattress pads an blankets that have magnets within them. These are great for people who suffer with chronic pain over a large area, for example: back pain.

Purchasing magnet therapy

When purchasing magnet therapy it's important to choose a product that works for your situation and environment. If you suffer with chronic back pain and spend hours at work, a magnet desk chair might be a great choice, but if you are always on the go, running errands, tending to kids and exercising then a back strap would better meet your needs. It is important to remember that magnetic therapy promotes the idea that the more time that you can spend in contact with a magnet the better. When you are choosing what type of magnet you want to buy ask yourself:

  1. What do I spend most of the day doing?
  2. What type of magnet would serve me best?

Where do I buy magnets?

Not all magnets are created the same; they vary in strength and quality. It's important to shop around, ask what strength the magnet is and compare it with other products before you make a decision. In order to get results from magnet therapy it is advised to have a quality magnet.
