Gabe Newell's (Valve) son Gray Newell is talking about some treatment his taking.

I was going to cite a personal anecdote (I had diagnostic MRI for investigation of intermittent lower back pain, and since then it’s been much less severe, so the magnetism has worked), but I found this article:


https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4727473/#!po=28.9474

dealing with magnetic brain stimulation for post-traumatic stress syndrome.

Preliminary.  Not controlled.  At least one of the authors is hopelessly financially biased with interests in a centre administering the ‘therapy.’

I suppose it’s possible it could be effective, for the right conditions.
