1. Does a Bracelet have to be a tight fit around the wrist?

Link bracelet style: The fit should be not too tight to stop the circulation. The magnets should make reasonable contact with the skin but note, a magnetic field operates several cm from the magnet. As a general rule,  one finger width between the wrist and the bracelet is a good fit. This should usually be about 2cm longer than the tight wrist measurement.

Bangle style: The fit should be not too tight to stop the circulation. The magnets should make reasonable contact with the skin but note, a magnetic field operates several cm from the magnet.

Silicon Neo30: These bracelets contain 30 magnets, so if the bracelet is sightly loose, there are still magnets touching the skin at several points.

2. Should I wear my bracelet or therapy wrap 24 hours a day?

No hard and fast rules. Experimentation is sometimes required. If trying to treat a strong set of symptom's then wear it as much as possible.

3. I have a bangle, should the open side of the bangle be on the top or bottom of the wrist? 

The open end of the bracelet should be on the underside of the wrist. The magnets will then be nearer the pulse points, as indicated above.

4. How long do the magnets last in a bracelet/bangle?

The effect of time on modern permanent magnets is minimal. Over a period of 10 to 15 years in normal use, a magnet will loose only a small fraction of its magnetisation. Magnets will remain magnetised for several decades.

5. I seem to be getting an allergic reaction, what is causing this?

This is quite rare but when it does occur it is usually related to a metal allergy, in particular nickel. About 2% of the population have some sort of nickel allergy either mild or more severe. The nickel is a small part of the composition of the plating over the magnet. In our products this is protected by a cap over the magnet, with a further epoxy coating over the magnets.

Even with this protection sensitive people can still be affected. Blisters and/or redness normally form around or near the position of the magnets. We often suggest to people who have this sort reaction, to coat the inside of the bracelet. A coat of clear nail varnish placed over the magnets will form a second barrier. It does not affect the magnet therapy but may help.

6. I have a Titanium metal implant, will magnets have an effect on this?

A magnetic bracelet, of any metal type, will not affect titanium implants, there is no magnetic influence on the metal titanium.

8. How Secure is your web site?

We would like you to be confident about ordering online, we use the highest level of web site security. This is called secure socket layer (SSL) technology to ensure that your details are safe. Your browser will confirm that you are shopping in a secure environment by showing a locked padlock icon or an image of a key in the address bar at the top or base of your screen. A green pad lock and /or address bar indicates the highest security.

  • Our web site and company has been verified by Thawte, a leader in the web site security industry.
  • What you send and receive from our website is encrypted, which makes it difficult for anyone else to get to this info.
  • Our website is verified by Thawte, which means that our company has a certificate proving that we own it. The lock or pad lock button indicates who owns the site and which company has verified it.
  • In addition we have what is called a SSL Extended Validation (EV) certificate, which requires a more rigorous identity verification process by Thawte.
  • You can always tell if a web site has the highest security by seeing a green padlock and company name in the address bar, which will also contain the code https:// in front of the address.

9. We do not sell Titanium or Stainless Steel 4 in 1 Bio-Element.

Titanium 4 in 1 Bio-Elements - We do not support the use of these bracelets as they reduce the number of available magnets in a given magnetic bracelet. Four bio element bracelets commonly contain 4 different elements in disc form: Germanium, Far Infrared (FIR), Negative Ions and Neodymium Magnets. We are big believers in Magnetic Therapy with the primary therapy therefore coming from magnets, particularly for pain relief. The inclusion of these additional elements dilutes the overall Magnetic Therapy. We have no reason to believe these other elements support magnetic therapy. Typically if a double row magnetic bracelet contains 40 magnets (depending on size) then a 4 element bracelet would only contain 10 magnets, the remainder of the spaces taken up by the other elements.
