hi, its electro magnets placed in a dog crate or kennels, or mews, and it creates a magnetic force field which i think (i'm no expert)enlargens blood particles which alows more oxygen to travel round in the blood.

Not to burst anyones bubble (as my info is only hearsay) but the surgeon who took out my appendix told me that magnets as therapy in humans really works only as a placebo, because they think it will. Several times I have seen hundred thousand dollar plus horses given magnet therapy, their owners purchasing very expensive blankets, wraps etc with magnets. And I have to say that the only improvement I have seen have been in the owners mind.
But this may not be the magna therapy spoken of here as there is no chamber that I know of.

hi zarafia, i've heard the same thing, but these are not magnets wrapped around the legs or body. this is a box that is plugged into electricity which has magnets attached. the box is placed in a dog crate, with the magnets
placed around it. when turned on the crate becomes an electro magnetic field which can be turned up or down in strength. most greyhound trainers in the uk have these, and greyhound trainers are noteorious for being tighter then a ducks a**e

Basicaly, what you are talking about is a Magnetopulse machine.
For many years i used them when i trained the greyhounds and found them ideal for easing the aches and strains after racing or the day after for minor knocks etc. I dont know they would benefit BOP though, but one thing for sure is you can overdo it. Putting a greyhound in one for a while prior to racing had a "stopping" effect ;) which was handy if i was racing at tracks that took samples to check for doping.
Most common box is the Porta-mag that runs to around the 4/500 mark and the instructions quote :-
Porta-Mag Magnetic Field Therapy Unit. Conditions for Performance for Work & Show-Ring. Reduces Stress & Promotes Relaxation. Treats Injuries & Ailments. Reduces & Relieves Pain & Discomfort Associated with: Inflammation, Arthritis, Rheumatism, Sprains, Strains & Fractures.
