WHAT IS MAGNET THERAPY
Magnet therapy is a drug free, non-invasive therapeutic treatment that uses a magnet, and it’s magnetic field to assist the body with healing.  When magnetic energy passes through the body’s tissues, the body experiences relief of pain. This is due to increased oxygen to the area and improved blood flow, supporting the body’s natural healing process. The improved blood flow to the injured tissue helps reduce pain and inflammation. Magnetic Therapy works because iron makes up about 4% of our blood content and our cells produces electrical impulse.   Blood has iron in it, and iron is naturally attracted to magnets. Magnetic therapy increase in the blood’s circulation. This speeds up the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the treated areas and improves the removal of toxins from injured areas. A negative (north pole) magnetic field also supports the body’s alkalinity and reduces acidity within the body.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR MAGNETIC TREATMENTS TO WORK
A magnet’s healing effects can be realized within hours when quality magnets are used. However health improvements are experienced within 1- 7 days. 

MAGNET STRENGTH
The gauss of a magnet determines it strength. There is a gauss at the centre (core) of the magnet and one at its surface. Neodymium magnets are the strongest of the rare earth magnets and are permanent magnets. Neodymium magnets are composed of neodymium, iron and boron.

WHAT IS FELT WHEN MAGNETS ARE PLACED ON THE BODY?
You may feel nothing or you may feel the slight tingling in the area that the magnet has been placed upon. Some individuals feel increased circulation in the area and a slightly warm sensations or cool sensations Every individual will have a different experience. Stroking the area where the magnet is placed will generally subside sensations.

WHAT TYPES OF MAGNETS ARE USED IN TREATMENTS
Neodynium Magnets are used in treatments.
Neodynium magnets will penetrate up to 3-4 inches beneath the skin and around the area that the magnet is placed.
