There is a safe but less effective treatment method we use called magnets. The magnets are made up of a group of metals called ferromagnetic metals.
Magnets have a similar effect to acupuncture but unfortunately the results are not as powerful because the current isn’t going through the skin and into blood.
What we feel and our pain threshold is individual to us. If we anticipate feeling a sensation our brain is tricking us into thinking it’s going to be heightened or lessened depending beyond our reaction to the sensation the previous time it was met. By creating an emotion before any action has been carried out gives us a preconceived perception of what is about to happen and therefore, we miss out on the present moment and the true sensation.
Magnets don’t produce as much of a sensation and allow time for the body and the mind to relax, sending us into a parasympathetic state, which is the bodies best place for healing.
If you want to try magnets as an alternate to acupuncture please just ask Sarah. While the therapeutic effects are much higher when using acupuncture there is so much more to the treatment than the acupuncture. Having the magnet therapy along with the rest of the treatment is going to do a much better job than not having the treatment at all.
