Magnetotherapy is both a science and an art. This is a science as magnetism is similar to, and works on the lines of, electricity; and its application is an art as it involves the selection of magnets of different strength to different parts, to relieve different ailments of the body. It is a system of treatment which covers a vast field of therapeutics and can relieve almost all functional defects of the various systems working in the human body.
Magnetotherapy is based on natural laws and principles and is not a magic or miracle. It means carrying out treatment of the sick with application of magnets over the suffering parts of the body, or on the extremities for altering the diseased condition into a state of recovery and complete health.
