Magnet Therapy Explained
Arthritis Joint Pain Migraine Back Ache Sports Injuries ?
Magnet Therapy is not:
- A miracle or the answer to everything.
- To be used without a diagnosis (an understanding of your condition).
- To be used by persons using a pacemaker, defibrillators, insulin pumps or other electro-insulin or battery operated devices.
- It should not to be used by pregnant women, although there are no contra-indications, it is a simple safeguard in ensuring a natural progression of the pregnancy.
Magnet Therapy is :
- Doctor recommended
- Clinically tested
- Safe & effective
- A non-invasive drug free therapy.
- Now even more affordable
- And most importantly - Natural

Industrial Injury – Partially Severed Hand
My name is Andy Burgess;
I’m 39 and a general builder. On the 7th April 1998 I was involved in an
industrial accident, which resulted in my wrist being severely cut, and
the doctors advised me I might lose my hand. All my tendons were
severed, as were my arteries and veins. After many operations and over
250 internal stitches they managed to save my hand. Many months later I
had 65% mobility but a great deal of pain. Every morning I woke with a
‘clawed hand’ and it took 20 minutes of exercise to release it. Some
numbness still remained, and the hand was weak (I could not lift a
After using your magnetic link bracelet the ‘clawing’
stopped within days and I can honestly say that since I have been
wearing it my wrist and fingers are now nearly normal. I can work again
and lift anything up to 60lbs with it.
I would without hesitation recommend these products to
anyone, and do as I am living proof that these things work.
Keep up the good work,
A.S. Burgess, Somerset

Andy is now working at Bristol Int. Airport
The Worldwide use of Magnets
Western medicine tends to be dominated by a belief in
surgical and pharmaceutical intervention, and in a great majority of
cases this is the appropriate course. But sometimes there are drug-free
and non-intrusive alternatives.
When will the UK catch up with other countries? Good Question!
In countries where drugs are not automatically turned
to, magnetic therapy is often the first line of approaching soft tissue
damage. Countries such as Japan, Russia, The Baltic States and China.
Recently Germany, France and Italy are taking the use of 'serious'
Magnet Therapy more seriously and opening clinics devoted to their use.
Even the USA is trying to catch up by rushing to do double blind
Worldwide, there are now over 350 double-blind clinical studies done on MT. The UK accepts NONE.
Why not? Good question!
HOW DO MAGNETS WORK?
There is still much research and debate about how
magnets work. Different theories have been claimed by manufacturers of
magnetic products. I will point out the largely accepted views held by
doctors and researchers.
EXTRACT FROM A DOUBLE BLIND STUDY DONE IN THE USA – 1995
‘When a magnet is applied to
the body, muscles and soft tissue lengthen and relax, waves pass through
the tissue and secondary currents are induced. When those currents
clash with magnetic waves they produce impacting heat on electrons in
the body cells. These impacting heats are very effective in the
reduction of muscle swelling and pain. Movement of hemoglobin in the
blood vessels is accelerated, this has been observed in both
thermographic and nuclear medicine studies, while calcium, cholesterol
and lactic acid deposits in the blood are decreased. The fatigued blood
is cleansed and circulation is increased. There is also significant
evidence of a pain blocking mechanism in nerve fibers themselves when
subjected to magnetic fields.
Researchers have been able to shift the
resting potential (thereby raising the required stimulus to pain) of
nerve cells in the laboratory by 25% using the Magnecore technology
High strength magnets can cause anesthesia, in the tissue, through a principal in physics called the
Hall effect. A thermal impact that occurs within the cell, which can
affect nerve signals’.
What does this all mean in lay terms?
Two vital things occur when a magnet is placed on the skin.
First, the soft tissue will lengthen and help to relax
down a muscle or ligament that is damaged or traumatized. It will work
in an area and depth directly proportionate to the type and strength of
magnet used (forget the fridge one). Presuming you have one of the
better magnets, you should be able to effect a change to a radius of
between 3 – 5 inches around any one magnet and to a similar depth.
As the tissue relaxes, oxygen and blood flow that has so
far had restricted access to the damaged site is allowed in and
increased. We can see this by thermal imaging.
Normally an injured site, whether from arthritis, torn
muscles or another condition, will be surrounded by inflammation. This
can comprise of lactic acids, calcium and other deposits. Basically the
site is ‘hot’ with acidity. The increase in oxygen and blood flow
brings with it increased alkaline. Acidity hates to be in an alkaline
environment and this is where the body starts to generate its own
healing abilities. Magnets merely encourage this in a truly dramatic
So, here we are - we have relaxed the tissue and with
increased blood flow we have started to detoxify the area. Next, the
thermal impact mentioned in the Hall effect occurs inside the cell.
As the blood in our body continuously
circulates it periodically comes close to the magnet placed on the skin
above. The ions in the blood become agitated and are attracted to the
magnet, atomic particles begin to spin inside the cell – they go into
the Hall effect – and in doing so get ‘switched on’.
By ‘switching on’ the body kicks in its own beta-endorphin (pain relieving) system.
