Magnet therapy topic at H.E.L.P.
Learn about an alternative medicine technique, magnetic therapy, at a workshop sponsored by the City of Port Aransas Parks and Recreation Department.
Healing Hands with magnetic therapy, part of the H.E.L.P. series offering information on health, ecology, lifestyle and preparation, is scheduled for Tuesday, May 17, at 7:30 p.m. at the Community Center, 408 N. Alister St.
In a return engagement, Carl Levy, owner of a furniture store in Corpus Christi, will talk about his experiences with magnetic therapy and how he acquired the gift to help others. After suffering from multiple health problems several years ago, Levy met a man who introduced him to magnetic therapy. He started using the magnets and felt better, plus he discovered he could help others by touching magnets to their painful areas. Levy will often help those in pain who come into his store. He says no magic is involved.
According to a press release, “Magnet therapy is accepted and widely used in Germany, Italy, England, France, Spain, Australia and Russia. Results were released in November, 1997, from a double-blind study conducted by Baylor College of Medicine and Institute of Rehabilitation and Research showing 76-percent of patients who received magnetic therapy reported a significant and quick decrease in arthritic pain and discomfort in joints and muscles.”
H.E.L.P. activities are free and open to all ages.
