Magnetic Therapy

What is magnetic therapy

Magnetic therapy uses only the magnetic part of the electromagnetic field for healing purposes. The treated body part is exposed to an artificial magnetic field that induces weak electric changes in the tissues. The magnetic field used in medicine is usually pulsating and it is applied via various types of applicators depending on the nature and location of the health problems (magnetic pads, blanket, cylinder). During the application of a pulsating magnetic field, the patient usually feels no special perception (no heat, sound nor tingling). The patient is dressed during the procedure. The treatment may be provided even in case of non-metallic bandages, casts or braces in place.

How magnetic therapy helps

The magnetic field affects the cellular metabolism so that it works more efficiently, along with improved blood flow – this results in the regeneration of cells, thereby supporting the healing process (proven in broken bones and sprained joints). Moreover, the magnetic field also suppresses pain and swelling, relieves muscle contractions and enhances immune processes in the body.

More information about treatment including indications and contraindications


High intensity focused electromagnetic fields have been successfully applied in the treatment of incontinence or after operations in the abdomen or pelvis, both in men and women. This type of electromagnetic energy stimulates the deep muscles of the pelvic floor, thus improving their function and reducing incontinence. The applicator looks like an upholstered armchair, where you sit normally dressed. You may experience some unpleasant feelings in the beginning of the treatment but later they all disappear and your condition is likely to improve. For the best treatment effect it is recommended to take 10 sessions. One session lasts up to 20 min.

Advisable for:

Pain relief in inflammatory, degenerative and traumatic conditions (e.g. fractures, sprains, arthrosis, backaches, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome), reduction of swelling (injuries, lymphatic oedema), decreased tissue metabolism (in diseases of peripheral nerves and arteries, diabetes mellitus)

Not advisable for:

Metallic implants – namely cardiostimulators (pacemakers) or defibrillators, pregnancy, menstruation, any tumours, bleeding disorders, severe infectious diseases, fever, acute inflammation, untreated or uncontrolled hypertension, epilepsy, acute thrombosis, phlebitis, dysfunction of endocrine glands, psychosis, alcohol or drug abuse
