Magnets acting on the body's own electromagnetic field restore balance. They do this by increasing blood flow and oxygen. This stimulates the natural healing processes of the body. The increased blood flow and oxygen increase cellular respiration. This, in turn, increased caloric consumption--that is, it burns more calories. While there is much debate about the actual cellular effects, magnetic therapy offers a safe, non-invasive therapy.
