What is Magnetic Therapy Used For?
Understanding what magnetic therapy is used for can help you determine if a magnetic therapy mattress will be beneficial for you. At Innovative Sleep Solutions, we understand how important a good night’s sleep is to your overall health. That is why we offer a wide range of healthy sleep products, such as magnetic therapy mattresses.
What is Magnetic Therapy?
Magnetic therapy, also often referred to as magnetic field therapy or bioenergy therapy, is an alternative type of therapy that places various size and strength of magnets on the body in order to help relieve pain and treat diseases. Thin metal magnets can be attached to the body in the form of bracelets or necklaces or can be concealed in everyday items, such as blankets and mattresses.
How do Magnetic Therapy Mattresses Work?
Each magnetic therapy mattress has between 220 – 440 (depending on mattress size) concentric circular medical magnets sewn into the fabric between foam or polyester fibres and an outer layer of hypoallergenic material, such as organic cotton or bamboo cover. While our magnetic therapy mattresses are about 11-13 inches thick, each magnet is padded extremely well, so that the user will never feel the magnets beneath them.
Magnetic therapy mattresses can help increase blood circulation in parts of the body that are in contact with the magnets. This means that parts of the body will begin to receive a healthier supply of oxygen and other nutrients, helping speed up the healing process.
Benefits of Magnetic Therapy Mattresses
People suffering from certain conditions—insomnia, body pain, fibromyalgia, poor blood circulation, stress, migraines, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and arthritis—may benefit from the use of a magnetic therapy mattress. Some of the benefits include:
Getting a Good Night’s Sleep
Magnetic therapy mattresses can help people suffering from insomnia by reducing stress and inducing relaxation. This, in turn, can result in a good night’ sleep, as well as feeling more energetic in the morning.
People who suffer from weak blood circulation (often shown by cold hands and feet) can benefit from the use of a magnetic therapy mattress, as it can help increase circulation and ease the symptoms of poor circulation.
Magnetic therapy mattresses are known for relieving bone, joint, and muscle pain, as well as headaches. Using a magnetic therapy mattress combined with massage and acupuncture treatments can help lessen muscle contraction and increase blood flow.
