The "Gee-Whiz" also referred to as "G-Whiz" is a similar type of attachment used to stimulate the G-spot. Hanson said she was instructed to purchase the Magic Wand but was advised to be cautious regarding its emotional and physical influence because it could have properties which could cause habit-forming dependency.
She observed that in comparison to her prior vibrator operated by two D batteries , the Magic Wand was significantly more effective. The Magic Wand was identified as outstanding. Writings Banned in Canada , which included works confiscated by Canadian authorities for being "obscene", featured a contribution involving a woman who used a Magic Wand for pain relief.
There are no implications of anything beyond standard health-care use. Health that it was effective for helping women with orgasm after menopause , and improving sexual ability and self-esteem.
The researchers gave women the Magic Wand to help excite the clitoris and increase the likelihood they would experience an orgasm. They found self-administered treatment using the Magic Wand to be the most efficient option to address prior problems achieving orgasm. They said the Magic Wand's large head effectively created a vibrating sensation in the area of the clitoris and vulva without superficial discomfort. The authors said the person holding the device would need to be capable of maintaining an active wide grasp throughout the process.
They wrote that the Magic Wand was helpful for disabled people with either limited strength in their upper extremities or limited use of their hands. They also said it was well-suited for individuals with decreased movement in their upper extremities.
Trigger Point Management authors orthopedic surgeon Edward S. Rachlin and physical therapist Isabel Rachlin recommended use of the Magic Wand for self-treatment by patients with myalgia. They wrote that continued use of the Magic Wand on myofascial trigger points or tense areas of muscle could result in decreasing the amount of discomfort felt by patients.
Rachlin and Rachlin suggested that such treatment could be done in one's residence outside of a clinical setting. The authors described use of the device to decrease discomfort before procedures including supplementing anesthesia with the injection of triamcinolone acetonide into the proximal nail fold for psoriasis , decreasing discomfort during a Restylane injection of the nasolabial fold , making an intense pulsed light IPL facial treatment easier by reducing pain during the procedure, and throughout axillary hyperhidrosis treatment with botulinum toxin.
They recommended use of the device with the "Wonder Wand" attachment to provide vibration to a decreased surface area on the patient. Their sample size included 20 babies of age 35 weeks or more, and they tracked their subjects' levels of pain on the Neonatal Infant Pain Scale while giving mechanical vibration to alleviate discomfort for a heel stick procedure.
Vibration was delivered using the Magic Wand, which they bought through Vibratex. They set the Magic Wand to the highest setting and placed it on the heel of the infant for five seconds before administering the heel stick procedure.
Their results found that oscillation sensations delivered to newborns who had previously had discomfort from neonatal heel pricks were able to deliver some relief. Gordon reported in in the Journal of Applied Physiology on their use of the Magic Wand to create vibrations in the left biceps brachia to study proprioception signals in humans related to fingertip contact on surfaces. They wrote that extension of muscles and sensory clues worked together to provide regional perception of the patient's upper extremity in a localized area.
They measured people suffering Parkinson's disease PD for proprioceptive ability while their subjects' biceps muscles were stimulated with the vibrator. While testing their subjects' balance while having to deal with simultaneous vibration, the researchers attached one Magic Wand to each leg. BPPV is the most common cause of vertigo , a problem attributed to a detached otoconia in one of the semicircular canals.
He wrote that the procedure most often performed for this purpose was a slightly transformed version of the Epley maneuver , and afterwards recommended carrying out a Dix—Hallpike test to assess the status of BPPV.
If such a test was positive, Hornibrook recommended using a Magic Wand to deliver vibrations to the area of the mastoid process.
