Biomagnetic (BM) sessions are a relaxing and healing experience. During the first few minutes an interview is conducted for the practitioner to learn your health history and the purpose for your visit.
- During the therapy session the person will lie fully clothed and comfortably on their back on a cushioned table. It is advised to wear comfortable cotton form-fitting clothes and clean socks.
- The BM practitioner will then conduct a kinesiology assessment to identify pH imbalances in different areas of the body. With this approach, the practitioner sits holding your feet observing your muscle reactivity to specific anatomical imbalances.
- Pairs of lightweight medium intensity magnets are gently placed on your body over your clothing, targeting points of pH imbalance. The magnets remain on the client for a determined amount of time-based on the geographic latitude of where the therapy is being conducted.
- Clients generally feel good during and after a session. Clients often report feeling more relaxed, lighter, and energized. After the magnets are removed from the body, a brief summary and recommendations are offered to the client. The client is encouraged to drink plenty of water to facilitate any detoxification.
How long is each session?
Sessions usually last 60-90 minutes but may take longer, depending on the experience of the practitioner and the number of magnetic pairs needed to be placed. The first session may be a little longer due to the introductory explanation of BM to the client.
How many sessions are needed for one’s health issue?
Every case is different. Sometimes, only one session is necessary, other times four to six. However, with chronic conditions or cases that are more complex, with many variables causing multiple health conditions (e.g. heavy metal toxicities, nutritional deficiencies, chronic conditions) more sessions may be needed.
What are the side effects of BM therapy?
There are no real negative side effects to Biomagnetic therapy. The majority of people feel good immediately after a session, but a few people may feel exhausted or wiped out after a long and complex therapy. Biomagnetism can be just like exercise—fantastic for the body, but calling for a little recovery time. The degree of tiredness can depend on the number of magnetic pairs placed during the session and the pH imbalances being resolved, e.g. detoxing as a result of the toxins and inflammation leaving the body. When this happens, the body simply needs lots of fluids for the following three days and a day or two of good sleep so that the body can begin to heal itself and restore homeostasis.
How long does it take for people to notice improvements?
Every body is unique and, despite similar diagnoses, each person faces a unique combination of pathogens and health challenges. So many varying factors affect each person’s recovery that it is impossible to predict a timeframe. Some people have a dramatic response during the first BM session. Others have a slow, gentle recovery feeling no changes for quite a few sessions until eventually there are perceptible improvements. Either way, the body advances toward health.
Are there any instances when BM is not recommended?
There are no real contraindications to receiving BM, just precautions.
Biomagnetic therapy may be applied during pregnancy. An experienced BM therapist will know to ask whether the therapy should be best applied for the mother or baby or both and how to apply the magnets for each situation. Clients with a history of epilepsy may also benefit from BM and must understand that when toxins are being released from the body, sometimes a detox reaction may occur whereby there is a temporary increase in inflammation that may affect the client temporarily. A well-trained and experienced therapist will know the best areas of the brain and body to work with to bring the appropriate balance to minimize detox reactions.
BM may be used on clients with pacemakers, as long as the area of the pacemaker is avoided.
Is Biomagnetic pair therapy costly?
In comparison to expensive medical treatments, Biomagnetism is not expensive at all. A trip to the emergency room or to a local urgent care can run you up several hundred to several thousand dollars. Specialized treatments or repeated therapies are even more expensive when you add them up. Biomagnetic therapy provides an economic alternative to the expensive and often invasive procedures of traditional medicine.
BM therapy costs vary based on practitioner experience, results and countries. An average session in Latin America can cost $100 by an experienced practitioner. An average session in the US can cost $250 per 1.5-hr session. If the practitioner offers longer 2-hour sessions, then the fee may be more. Practitioners with great results and a long wait list very likely will charge more.
How can Biomagnetic therapy help with emotional or psychological problems?
There are various ways in which intellectual and emotional dysfunctions may be balanced. When a microorganism, such as a bacteria, virus, fungus or parasite, causes a dysfunction in the central nervous system or the endocrine system, which regulate hormones involved in pain reception, mood, sweat, hunger, sleep and other functions–the glands are not able to process those hormones properly. Some of these hormones include Serotonin, Acetylcholine and Epinephrine, which act as an adrenaline regulator, an emotion regulator, and antidepressant respectively. Once the pathogen no longer survives in a pH stable environment, the glands return to their normal function, the hormone processes are brought back and emotional or psychological problems are either decreased outstandingly or disappear.
There are also cases that do not involve pathogens but rather simple electromagnetic distortions within the central nervous system. Magnets are able to balance these distortions, making the system finer able to regulate the endocrine system.
There are also specific pairs relating to psychological or emotional issues, the need for which may be identified during a scan. Whereas the pairs may nudge the client in a healthy direction, sometimes journaling or counseling may be recommended.
