Why choose magnetic therapy products?
We produce magnetic products on the basis of increasing belief that magnets help to stimulate blood circulation. (Please note that we only use low force 250-300 gauss magnetic strips in our products).
It is broadly accepted that improved circulation creates increased warmth to a given area, which in turn promotes pain relief by helping to relax muscles. Many health professionals, particularly those within the physiotherapy profession, observe that because blood contains iron in the haemoglobin, that such iron will be attracted to magnetic fields applied to the body and as such will increase blood flow and circulation to that given area.
There is also widespread awareness that magnetics may help in the relief of tension, stress, nervous asthma, arthritis, rheumatism, migraines, cramps, tennis elbow, ‘cold’’ joints, etc.
We acknowledge that there is no conclusive scientific evidence that magnetics can be guaranteed to assist in the healing process. If you have any reservations please discuss this with your health professional. All our products (with the exception of the pillow pad) incorporate the use of best practice therapeutic design …with or without magnets.
Important: People with a pacemaker, epileptics or pregnant women, should seek medical advice before using magnetic products, particularly those using magnets of 1000 gauss plus.
Is magnetic therapy safe?
While it’s generally safe for most people to wear low-intensity static magnets, it’s not a good idea to have magnetic field therapy if you:
- Use a pacemaker
- Have an insulin pump
- Are epileptic
- Are pregnant
You should also take off any magnets before having an X-ray or getting an MRI.
Some people who have magnetic field therapy experience side effects like pain, nausea and dizziness, however these side effects are rare.
Does magnetic therapy work?
There is no scientific proof, but the theory is that the positive/negative field that is emitted by magnets when applied to an area of the body actually helps stimulate blood flow, which in turn brings added warmth to the affected area. This may help in the healing process. This company makes no claims as to the benefits of magnetic therapy.
Can magnets be too strong?
Yes. You would not want to be using magnets with a gauss in excess of say 1000 to certain areas such as near the heart etc. Pacemakers and pregnancies and other issues may be interfered with if magnets are too strong. This company uses mild strip magnets of between 250 to 300 gauss, to “play safe”. We recommend that you consult with your medical practitioner before using more powerful magnets.
Do health professionals recommend the use of magnets?
Some do, some don’t. The jury is out on the issue. But health professionals have been using magnets in some form or other for hundreds of years as part of the healing process, and the Egyptians have been using magnetic therapy for thousands of years! From our research, it’s all pretty harmless so long as the magnets are not too powerful.
Can you feel the magnets in our products?
No, our magnets are strip magnets and sit flat within the products.
