When most people hear Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) they often think herbal supplements, massage, and acupuncture. But TCM encompasses a lot more than those three modalities, one of which is Magnet Therapy.
What is Magnet Therapy?
Our bodies are regulated by electromagnetic signals and each cell in our body has an electrical state. Traditional Chinese Medicine is based around the idea of “Qi,” the balance of energy in your body.
Qi is the balance of two opposing energies, Yin and Yan. Yin is nourishing, moistening, and cooling whereas Yang is the energetic, hot and motivational energy.
Magnet therapy is the use of magnets on acupressure points throughout the body to balance your yin and yang. This is a non-invasive treatment option that can help with a variety of health issues:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Children’s health problems (bed-wetting, behavioral disorders)
- Chronic fatigue
- Gastrointestinal problems (colitis, constipation, diverticulitis, parasites, hiatal hernia, indigestion and nausea, irritable bowel syndrome)
- Heart diseases
- Men’s health problems (benign prostatic hypertrophy, impotence)
- Mental and emotional problems
- Pain and injuries
- Respiratory problems (asthma, bronchitis, colds and sinusitis, lung infections)
- Skin problems (boils, burns, blisters, insect stings, scalp infections, warts and moles, sunburn)
- Sleep disorders
- Women’s health problems (breast soreness, yeast infections, menstrual problems, menopausal discomforts, osteoporosis, cystitis)
How Does Magnetic Therapy Work
Similar to acupuncture, a certified TCM practitioner will focus on specific pressure points throughout your body depending on your symptoms. On these pressure points, they will place small magnets that will draw out the natural electromagnetic energy in your body and remove energy obstructions.
Magnet therapy works in tandem with acupuncture and other TCM treatments. It is also a great alternative for those looking to try a holistic approach to their health. If you have questions or want to try magnet therapy, call us today.
