Magnetic Therapy History  
From Ancient Magnetic Therapy  to 
the New Age Pulsed Magnetic Therapy

History of Magnetic Therapy

Magnetic therapy and its positive health benefits are now increasingly popular in North America and many other countries in the world. However, the effects of magnetic therapy have been already recorded since 2000 B.C. in the Emperor's manuscript published in China. Magnetic stones were used to correct health issues.

Today's use of Magnetic Therapy

Magnetic therapy is the general term used as an alternative treatment with medical magnets or pulsed magnetic therapy using a magnetic pulser also called a magnetic therapy device.
Alternative medicine is often based on cultural or historical traditions and has proved its effectiveness over centuries. Magnetic therapy, magnet therapy or magneto therapy falls into this field and is often rejected from medical doctors trained in the unbending school medicine. Up to this day, modern school medicine ignores every therapy in connection with the names: "magnet or magnetic".

There are some daring physicians - the pioneers of our modern age - who are thinking outside the box, trying to unify school medicine and alternative medicine. When they do this they stumble into the exciting field of magnetic therapy and the specialized invention of pulsed magnetic therapy. The combination of both, magnetic therapy and the conservative school of medicine- lead them in a direction in which the patient receives maximum care.

The Germans, who have renowned scientists and inventors (see German inventions) introduced a genius invention namely called the: Pulsed Magnetic Therapy. The use of Pulsed Magnetic Therapy was already established in Germany after the 2nd World War and is a successful therapy since. Pulsed magnetic therapy is used in hospitals, clinics, by homeopaths and naturopaths.

The German physicist Dr.Wolfgang Ludwig became prominent for his research and experiments with Schumann waves . His aim was to measure what kind of natural signals actually exist in a healthy environment. These findings were implemented in the Bio Medici Magnetic Pulser using the life essential Schumann waves essential for humans and animals.

Eventually pulsed magnetic therapy found its way to consumers and clinics in North America despite the competition and the boycott of the multibillion dollar pharmaceutical corporations.


Cleopatra the queen of ancient Egypt used magnetic therapy by sleeping with magnetic stones on her forehead in an attempt to preserve her youthful appearance and the Greek philosopher Aristotle talked about magnets as healing therapy.

Franz Anton Mesmer (May 23. 1734 - March 5. 1815) was a German physician who proposed that a magnetic force is flowing throughout the universe as well as the human body. He applied magnetic therapy using magnets, travelling around Europe as a healer. Later on, Mesmer opened a salon in Paris. At this time he applied "magnetic therapy" differently. Patients were placed in large water filled vats containing iron filings and rods. They had to pour magnetic water over their body parts affected by illness. In January 1768, Mesmer married Anna Maria von Posch, a wealthy widow, and established himself as a physician in Austria, Vienna treating the aristocrats with magnetic therapy.

Magnetic therapy (with magnets) was used in 1493 by the Swiss physician and alchemist Paracelsus in an effort to cure everything from headache to inflammation.
Sir William Gilbert, the physician to Elizabeth I of England published in the year 1600 a book describing the earth's huge magnetic field and its magnetic poles. He also believed that load stones have a positive influence on the human system.
