1. A coil for magnetic stimulation of a body part, the coil comprising:
a base portion including multiple stimulating elements wherein said multiple stimulating elements include a first stimulating element and a second stimulating element adjacent to said first stimulating element, and a third stimulating element adjacent to said second stimulating element, said base portion configured to encircle at least a portion of a first section of a body part and to provide electrical flow in a clockwise or counter-clockwise path; and
a protruding return portion including multiple protruding return elements wherein each of said multiple protruding return elements is continuous with and positioned at an angle of between 90 and 180 degrees to each of said multiple stimulating elements, wherein said multiple protruding return elements include a first return element and a second return element adjacent to said first return element, and a third return element adjacent to said second return element, said protruding return portion configured to encircle and protrude from, wherein said second section is in a different location than said first section, and to provide electrical flow in a continuation of the clockwise or counter-clockwise path of said base portion, wherein all of said multiple stimulating elements of said base portion are configured to contact the body part and wherein all of said multiple protruding return elements are configured to protrude from the body part, wherein said coil does not include any contacting return elements.
