The term “Magnetic Field Therapy” refers to various practices ranging from wearing a magnetized bracelet to sleeping on magnetized mattresses to therapy involving magnetic field machinery, small and large. 

On the simplest level, magnetic field therapy refers to using magnets to treat illness and maintain health. Both the Earth and the human body naturally produce electromagnetic fields. However, we can also produce dynamic electromagnetic fields using specifically designed technology. Those who practice magnetic field therapy believe that interactions between the human body, the Earth, and other electromagnetic fields can cause both physical and emotional changes in humans. Practitioners of this type of therapy also believe that the body’s electrical and electromagnetic fields need to be balanced to maintain optimal health. They apply magnetic field therapy outside the body using magnetic fields that can be:

  • Electrically charged, which deliver magnetic pulses to the treatment area
  • Stationary and static (not electrically charged), which deliver continuous treatment to local areas of the body for longer periods
  • Combined with acupuncture needles for treating energy pathways within the body

When it comes to the effects that magnetic fields have on the body, there are multiple theories, all correct to some degree, none of which completely explain the magnetic phenomena. However, the general consensus is that magnetic fields act upon the body at the molecular level, by enhancing or affecting the natural electrical charges in the tissues that correct disruptions.

According to laboratory studies, magnetic fields can modulate the transport of ions and related neuronal and cell activity. Through these actions, magnetic field therapies have been found in hundreds of research studies to have benefits in numerous health conditions.

Magnetic Field Therapy uses magnets to maintain health and treat illness. The human body and the earth naturally produce electric and magnetic fields. Electromagnetic fields also can be technologically produced, such as radio and television waves.

Practitioners of Magnetic Field Therapy believe that interactions between the body, the earth, and other electromagnetic fields cause physical and emotional changes in humans. They also believe that the body’s electromagnetic field must be in balance to maintain good health. Practitioners apply magnetic field therapy to the outside of the body. The magnets may be:

  • Electrically charged, to deliver an electrical pulse to the treated area.
  • Used with acupuncture needles, to treat energy pathways in the body.
  • Static (not electrically charged) and stationary on the treated area for periods of time, to deliver continuous treatment.

Some people use magnet therapy for treating pain, such as foot, back, or joint pain.
