The history of magnetic therapy goes back about four thousand years. It is mentioned in some of the earliest writings in Egypt, India, Greece and China.
The Yellow Emperor’s Book of Internal Medicine from 2000 B.C., one of the early writings of Chinese Medicine, mentions the use of magnetic stones (lodestone) to therapeutically influence energetically charged points (acupuncture points) and their associated channels (meridians). This was done to balance the body's subtle energies or natural magnetism.
It is said that the stone Queen Cleopatra wore on her forehead was lodestone also known as magnetite (a magnetic mineral form of iron oxide). She believed it would keep her young and beautiful.
Magnetic Therapy History
Records indicate that the Chinese, Indians and Egyptians all believed that physical disease was a result of energetic imbalances. Ancient healers used this holistic remedy to assist the body’s innate ability to balance and heal itself (homeostasis).
Magnet therapy involves the application of static (stationary) magnets for health benefits. The magnets most commonly used in magnet therapy are permanent magnets, also referred to as biomagnets (healing magnets).
Today, magnetic therapy is well advanced in China, Japan, India, Australia and Germany. The majority of physicians, here in the United States, have been slow to recognize and embrace it.
More recently, a variety of healthcare professionals such as acupuncturists, chiropractors, massage therapists, and naturopathic doctors are incorporating static magnetic therapy into their practices. They are now realizing how this natural remedy can assist the body to achieve holistic health.
