The History of Magnetic Therapy

 The use of magnets for the treatment of various illnesses, above all inflammatory complaints such as arthritis dates back to ancient times. Documentation exists on the use of Magnetic therapy by the Chinese, Egyptians and Greeks.
It was not until the nineteenth century and the study of electromagnetism by scientists like Faraday, Hertz and Gauss and others, that Magnetic therapy began to be properly developed. The scientific investigations helped shape this powerful and effective therapy into what it is today, a treatment for osteoporosis, rheumatic pain, tendinitis, bone fractures and inflammation.

The efficacy of Magnetic therapy only came to light in the twentieth century. The advent of microprocessors and research into Space helped Magnetic therapy takes its special place amongst other treatments
