It has been discovered that the benefits of Bowen are without question affected in a negative way if magnets are used after a session. Remember, Bowen works on both physical and energetic levels simultaneously for many days following a session. The magnets, as an outside source, artificially draw blood to an area, as blood has high iron content, and magnets naturally attract iron and therefore can attract more blood to an area than the body actually needs. Magnets are also an outside energy source that artificially stimulates an area thereby affecting its true energy pattern. It is best to trust the body and let it do what it knows best.
