Sometimes I work with magnets too, just little tiny ones (we check of course to see whether your body is ok with magnets). I recently have had great results with swollen knees, painful neck, shoulder and back, and muscle pain. The swelling went down and the pain went!!
There are different avenues we can take, when working with the body and it's energy systems. Depending what needs help to balance. We could be working with your Chakras, building up your Aura, which can become depleted due to stress, life style, work load or emotional situations. We could be working with points on the head or the feet.. Following the energy in your meridians, to see whether they have been over worked, or are a little blocked.
