Magnet therapist Dr Ramesh Dharamthok leads the Department of Magnet Therapy.
Magnet therapy is useful for disorders in functional nature and is worth trying in acute and chronic arthritis, asthma, backache, lumbar and cervical spondylosis, headache, body pain, rheumatism, sprains, stiffness, fracture, swelling, etc.
The induction of a pulsed magnetic energy field in the body tissues causes bioelectric current activity which may assist in normalising electron flow within and between body cells. This may offer temporary relief from pain and help repair damaged tissues. Biowaves from the oscillating magnetic energy field can influence the ion exchange at the cellular level and also affect the transport of oxygen, blood activity and flow. Blood is also a fluid and is therefore influenced by a magnetic field.
Magnet therapy makes use of the following equipment, all of which are available at J Watumull Global Hospital & Research Centre:
- Electropulse magnetic bed force with an electromagnetic healer
- Electromagnetic pulse pyramid force machine
- Electromagnetic pulse well machine
- High power magnets
- Astro pulse machine and Nuga hot pad
