Electromagnetic Therapy

Electricity and magnetic energy exist in the human body. It controls the heart beat, stimulates muscles, and more. Each molecule in the human body actually contains a small amount of magnetic energy.

Electromagnetic therapy is based on the belief that an imbalance of the electromagnetic frequencies or fields of energy can cause illness. Electromagnetic therapy is applied to the body to correct these imbalances. There are various electrical devices available to treat a variety of symptoms. These include low-voltage electricity, magnetic fields, radio waves, or other types of electromagnetic energy. However, most are not approved by the FDA and many electronic devices marketed as disease cures have not been scientifically proven to be effective.

Electromagnetic therapy is also called bioelectricity, magnetobiology, magnetic field therapy, and magnetic healing.

Standard or conventional medicine makes some use of electromagnetic energy. Examples include:

  • Jump starting the heart after cardiac arrest
  • Using electrical currents to increase bone growth
  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulators (TENS), which are used to treat some types of pain

Our Heart Centers' integrative therapies are aimed at enhancing the body’s natural healing abilities and supporting patients mentally and emotionally before, during and after cardiac surgery.
