People who are new to Magnet Therapy frequently ask me, “Is Magnetic Therapy safe?” So I’d like to address that question in this blog post:
Magnetic Therapy Safety
Magnetic Therapy is a body-energy therapy that involves the application of magnets or magnetic fields to the human body for the purpose of healing or health benefits. This alternative therapy dates back to antiquity, and is still used in complementary and alternative medicine and today.
Using Magnetic Therapy is of little or no concern for most individuals. Research has proved the beneficial effects of Magnetic Therapy for both chronic and acute conditions. Permanent magnets are potent, safe, reusable healing tools. Some practitioners say that Magnet Therapy helps to prolong the beneficial effects of other natural therapies, such as manipulation and acupuncture.
Contrary to popular belief, there is no concern of exposing the body to too much magnetism or over doing it; the body is intelligent enough to take what it needs. Clinicians and researchers have reported a success rate of 80 to 90 percent in pain reduction. My personal experience has been 100% pain reduction. The majority of my clients have also reported a 100% success rate.
This holistic remedy is natural, safe, non-invasive, inexpensive and easy to use on your own. Magnetic Therapy does not come with the negative side effects often caused by medications. It is a natural tool that can be used to assist you in obtaining holistic health.
Magnet Therapy is a complimentary therapy. It can complement modern medicine and alternative therapies alike. This natural therapy is not meant to replace proper medical care. You should see a qualified healthcare professional if you have acute or persistent undiagnosed pain. Such pain may indicate a serious problem that requires more than Magnet Therapy.
A Few Precautions
Given what is known today about static magnets, most experts agree that self therapy is safe, except in the following situations – epilepsy, pregnancy, children under the age of two, internal bleeding, bleeding wounds, blood thinner usage such as Coumadin or with implanted devises such as pacemakers and insulin pumps. Always check with your healthcare professional.
When applying biomagnets avoid the area of implanted metal plates, screws and so forth. With the recent use of titanium, this is may not be of concern; to be sure check with you healthcare professional.
