Magnetic therapy has been used for centuries across the world for pain relief, to ease cramps and inflammation and to shorten healing time. Magnet therapy is used on both humans and animals with similar results.
Magnetic therapy devices come in many forms and magnets can be used anywhere on the body to relieve pain. Magnetic bracelets and magnetic jewellery are very popular, however some people prefer to target a specific problem area by wearing them in a back support, wrist brace or knee bandage.
How does magnet therapy work?
The body is a combination of billions of cells, each of which is an electromagnetic unit.
Research suggests that magnetic therapy helps to control the acidity within the body allowing the cells building supply and waste disposal system to work more efficiently.
The pain relieving and healing benefits of magnetic therapy are believed to be the result of a correction in the body’s cells pH levels (acid/alkaline) by the electro-conduction induced indirectly by magnetic energy. When a magnetic field comes into contact with the body it can help to stimulate the movement of ions in and out of cells, rebalancing their pH. This leads to an improvement in the cells ability to work more efficiently at delivering oxygen and nutrients around the body and removing waste.
Magnet therapy is a highly cost effective method of relieving the pain and discomfort of arthritis and injury without the use of medication or surgery. If you are looking for something to aid healing or relieve pain it is certainly worth trying.
