Biomagnetism Therapy
 

Biomagnetism uses static (permanent) magnets, like a refrigerator magnet except stronger.

To make a clear distinction, biomagnetism does NOT use electrical currents; in other words, potentially harmful electromagnetism is not used.  

The pair of magnets used does not cause any pain or discomfort.  No jolt of electricity will be running through anyone receiving our treatment! 

Permanent magnets come in different shapes, sizes, strengths, and materials.  To get technical for those of you that like scientific details; some of the magnet materials used are alnico, ceramic, neodymium and samarium cobalt.  

In order for magnets to be of therapeutic value, they must be a minimum of 1,000 Gauss in strength.  A Gauss is just the way scientists measure the strength of a magnet, like temperature measures heat.  One can use stronger magnets, for example, 10,000 or 20,000 Gauss; however, the results are the same.  Again, for those of you who really like to dig into an area—here’s an official definition of a Gauss:

… unit of magnetic induction in the centimeter-gram-second system of physical units.  One gauss corresponds to the magnetic flux density that will induce an electromotive force of one abvolt in each linear centimeter of a wire moving laterally at one centimeter per second at right angles to a magnetic flux.  One gauss corresponds to 10-4 tesla (T, the International System Unit).  The gauss is equal to 1 maxwell per square centimeter… Before 1932 the name was applied to the unit of magnetic-field strength now called the oersted…The gauss was named for the German scientist Carl Friedrich Gauss.
