Yes- all damage types, potentially even HP removal, are redirected to their source. This definitely includes both physical and magical damage.

HP removal isn't damage. Are you sure it works for HP removal? – Pacerier Sep 29 '14 at 22:22
@Pacerier No idea. As of the latest patch, HP removal isn't even a damage type anymore though. – Decency Sep 29 '14 at 23:12
Yes that's what I'm saying. HP removal isn't damage. – Pacerier Sep 30 '14 at 0:30
