Acumagnetic: the application of magnets to acupoints.
Acupuncture: a branch of Oriental medicine in which needles are placed in acupoints to balance the energy system of the body and promote health.
Alternating Current: (AC) electricity that is time and phase variant.
Attraction: a property of magnetism that makes opposite magnetic fields come together.
Bioelectromagnetism: the electric and magnetic fields emanating from living organisms.
Biomagnetic Therapy: the art and science of application and removal of magnetic fields for therapeutic benefit.
Biomagnetism: the magnetic field emanating from living organisms.
Biomagnets: a name for therapeutic permanent magnets that are used in biomagnetic therapy.
Ceramic magnets: a type of permanent magnet.
Diamagnetic: a classification of substances which have no magnetic moments.
Direct Current: (DC) electricity that is static and static magnets energy.
Direct technique: a biomagnetic therapy technique in which the magnet is applied specifically on a persons point of injury or pain.
Gauss: a measurement system and method for measuring and comparing the strengths of magnetic fields.
Geomagnetic: pertaining to the Earths magnetic field (about .5 gauss).
Indirect technique: a technique in biomagnetic therapy in which the magnet is in close proximity to the person but not in direct contact. Only the magnetic field touches the person.
Magnet: an object or device that exhibits an external magnetic field.
Magnetic field: an invisible region of space around a magnet or electric current in which a detectable force is exerted from the body of the magnet.
Magnetization pattern: the orientation of electrons in magnetic fields. A conventional magnetization pattern is a flat surface with one negative side and a opposite positive side. Multiple/ mixed and dual magnetization patterns have negative and positive fields on the same side of a flat surfaced magnet.
Negative pole: one of two poles on every magnet. The north seeking needle of a compass will point to the negative pole of a magnet. A negative biomagnet is color coded green, white, blue, or black. Electrons in the negative static magnetic field spins counterclockwise.
Positive pole: the north seeking needle of a compass will point away from the positive pole of a magnet. Biomagnets positive pole is color coded red.
South pole: one of two poles on every magnet. The side of a magnet that is not used in first aid. A magnetic compass points away from the Earths magnetic south pole.
Stroking technique: is used to pull fluids back to the kidneys for reabsorption. Stroke swelling with the negative pole of a magnet to the kidney on the same side of the body.
