A set of techniques that use magnetic fields generated by static magnets or by electromagnetic devices that when applied to different parts of the body is thought to promote health benefits by reducing pain and muscle spasticity or by accelerating bone and soft tissue regeneration, among other claims.
The magnetic waves generated by these magnets or electromagnets are of low intensity (much lower than those generated by Magnetic Resonance devices) and they do not remain in the body and do not cause cellular changes in the breast tissue or breast milk.
All magnetotherapy modalities are considered pseudoscientific practice within alternative medicine.
