How To Use Magnets In Magnet Therapy


For thousands of years, people had been using magnets as an alternative to heal and ease the pains that accompany these diseases. All those years, the use of magnets has been handed down orally from old traditions. There were no clear instructions on many things.

These days, experts on magnet therapy had compiled some guidelines on how to use magnets correctly.

Magnetic poles

Magnets have dual poles, the south and the north-pointing ends. The simple rule is that the north-pointing pole gives energy, while the south-pointing pole takes in energy. These facts have to be put into the context of the various illnesses.

An inflammation or a tight muscle or pain is considered a congestion of energy. The south pole point of the magnet can withdraw that energy out.

On the other hand, an overly relaxed muscle needs more energy, thus needing the use of the north-pointing end of the magnet.

Drooping shoulders

In cases of drooping shoulders (one side is dropped and the other is raised), magnets can do the right corrections.

The lowered end of the shoulders needs the strengthening north-pointing pole. The end that is raised should be applied with a south-pointing end of the magnet to correct the imbalance.

Gall bladder

In gall bladder problems, the left leg is usually pulled into the hip socket by tight muscles. The south-pointing pole applied to the hip can correct it.

While the magnet is in place, gently pull the “shortened” leg at the ankle until both ankles are of the same length. (The same can be done on the right leg if there is an imbalance.)


On tumors, use a strong south-pointing pole over the diseased area for about two hours everyday, two to three times daily. Hold the magnet under running water for some time right after each use.

If there is pain, have the magnet stay in place as long as it is required, sometimes for days on end.

Wounds and broken bones

Fresh wounds heal better with the south-pointing pole. In later applications, use both poles alternately. Near the end of the process, use the north-pointing pole.

Use the north-pointing end of the magnet applied above the fractures of broken bones towards the torso. A south-pointing pole may be applied opposite the north pole and below the fracture.

Headaches and stomach pains

For headaches, use the south-pointing pole on the center of the pain. However, for clearing up the head, attach the south-pointing pole to the forehead and the north-pointing pole to the base of the skull. (This can improve psychic awareness, too.)

Apply the north-pointing pole over the pit of the stomach to strengthen digestion. For pain, use the south-pointing pole.

Weak hearts and blood pressures

Carry a small magnet on the left pocket with the north-pointing pole near the breastbone. (If there is pain, use the south-pointing pole.) Check your pulse to see which pole is suited.

Apply the south-pointing pole to the right side of the neck to lower your blood pressure. To raise it, apply the north-pointing pole to the same area.

Check with your local magnet healer to know the other correct methods on the use of either magnet poles in different illnesses. Include the right sizes, the right strengths and other details on magnet therapy.
