Acupuncture is a millennia-old healing method based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is based on the assumption that there is a flowing flow of energy called Qi in the body. By stimulating certain points on the skin, called acupuncture points, the flow of Qi is to be stimulated and thus the body’s own healing system is to be supported. A modern variant of acupuncture is the use of magnets to stimulate the acupuncture points.
What is acupuncture with magnets?
Acupuncture with magnets, also known as magnetic acupuncture, is an extension of traditional acupuncture. Instead of needles, small magnets are placed on the acupuncture points. These magnets are supposed to stimulate the acupuncture points through their magnetic effect.
How does acupuncture with magnets work?
The effect of acupuncture with magnets is based on the assumption that the magnetic effect on the acupuncture points causes a stimulation of the body’s own healing system. By stimulating the acupuncture points, the flow of Qi is to be stimulated and thus the body’s own healing system is supported.
What are the advantages of acupuncture with magnets?
Acupuncture with magnets can be used for both acute and chronic complaints. Some of the most common applications are:
