magnetic therapy

                  Magnetic Therapy

There are many skeptics of magnetic therapy. But magnet therapy has a growing number of people who swear that it works, and rely on it to live pain free lives.

Using magnets for pain relief has been around for a long time. Aristotle, the Greek philosopher talked about the healing property of magnets in 300 BC.  And the earliest recorded mention of the medical use of magnets was about 2000 BC.  The Yellow Emperor`s Classic of Internal Medicine is one of the earliest medical books ever written. The book discusses using magnets for pain relief as well as other modern treatment options.

It was discovered in the late 1700s that the body produces magnetic impulses. Many studies around this time led to the belief that placing magnets on an affected area of the body will help align these impulses and ease pain.
