Biomagnetic Pair Therapy (BPT) is a holistic modality that can help relieve and unlock the root cause of mental health issues. This method is unique and effective because it works on both a cellular and an energetic level. How does the health and energetics of our body’s cells translate to the state of our mental wellness? The answer is this: emotions are a distinct form of energy.

We all experience our emotions in an energetic way. For example, when we are happy and excited, our energy is up and buzzing. On the flip side, when we are sad, our energy is low and we feel lethargic. When we block ourselves from fully experiencing and expressing our emotions due to cultural expectations, trauma or other reasons, the energy remains in our cells. It has been well documented that unprocessed emotions over time can lead to anxiety, depression, gastrointestinal problems, sleep issues, muscle tension and even increased risk for cardiovascular disease. 

To understand this psychosomatic phenomenon, it is important to recognize that emotional energy has a voltage and when it is not discharged, it becomes suppressed as electrical tension. This can be quite burdensome on the body and can have significant impacts on the central nervous system. Since the nervous system interacts with the cells of our entire body, including the digestive, endocrine and immune system, it can lead to a wide variety of manifestations. Both Traditional Chinese Medicine and the ancient healing science of Ayurveda believe that physical symptoms are indications of emotional dysregulation. Modern medical research is expanding in this area and supports the compelling link between our mental and emotional well-being and physical health.

It is possible to release accumulated energy from unresolved emotions and restore good health using Biomagnetic Pair Therapy. Humans are electromagnetic in nature and therefore respond quite well to therapeutic magnets. The modality uses the polarity of positive and negative magnets on highly specific locations on the body to create a neutral environment for cells to recalibrate and return to homeostasis. BPT has successfully been practiced since the 1980s to treat HIV, Epstein Barr Virus, Lyme disease and many other pathogen-related illnesses. The founder of BPT, Dr. Isaac Goiz, discovered more than 250 biomagnetic pairs during his career. The practice of biomagnetism has continued to evolve to include pairs for emotional healing. 

The Emotion Protocol, developed by Biomagnetic Pair Practitioner Janelle Salzman of We Are Indra ( features a comprehensive list of emotions to be scanned for in the evaluation process on top of the many pathogens that can wreak havoc on the body. With the application of biomagnetic pairs, people can begin to fully process and release the energy of stuck emotions. They start to feel lighter and brighter as emotional and mental shifts take place. Additionally, physical improvements often follow such as decreased inflammation, relieved constipation, or faded eczema and psoriasis. The depth of the interconnection between the heart, mind and body is incredible.

Biomagnetic Pair Therapy can be a wonderfully supportive tool to help people attain emotional, mental and physical wellness. The heart, mind, and body inherently strive for alignment and balance. Biomagnetic Pair Therapy supports this on a molecular level and therefore it is a great addition to other approaches in managing mental wellness.
