What is Magnetic Therapy? This is a question we get frequently at BioMagnetic Sport.
The short answer is: Magnetic Therapy is an alternative and non-invasive therapy that uses static (stationary) magnets to help facilitate the healing or relief from pain and other ailments.
But as with most natural alternative therapies there is so much more to it than that.
Despite the fact that magnetic therapy has been around for hundreds of years it is still often considered a new and alternative therapy for pain relief and management. Magnetic Therapy has occupied a central role in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years. In TCM it is believed that a balance of the negative and positive forces within a magnet represent good health. You may have heard it referred to as the Yin (positive) and Yang (negative).
Let's go over the type of magnets that are used in magnetic therapy, the magnets used are not the type you would find on your refrigerator door so before you go and tape one of those to your sore joints to save some money, read on.
The type of magnets BioMagnetic Sport and many other magnetic therapy manufacturers use are biomagnets which are produced for physical and mental healing. BioSport in particular use therapeutic grade bipolar magnets with 1,000+ gauss rating (what is a gauss rating? that's a whole other can of worms and one for another blog post.)
These magnets use their polarity to increase peripheral circulation to the affected area. What is peripheral circulation you ask? Peripheral circulation is blood flow that reaches the upper and lower extremities of the body and the surface of the skin. When the blood flow is increased the body can potentially heal faster and more effectively.
There is much skepticism surrounding magnetic therapy which is due to the lack of scientific research backing the practice, however despite that, many people continually find magnetic therapy to be a safe, and non-invasive treatment to their ailments.
