Widely popular in Japan and officially acknowledged by the Japanese Ministry of Health, magnet therapy has long been a point of discussion for believers and skeptics in the U.S. As a result of years of conflicting results produced by numerous medical studies, there are several misconceptions about magnet therapy and its real benefits.
At IonLoop we seek to provide information to our readers to make informed choices, either to try a magnetic bracelet or to decide that this is not for them. Aside from the feel-good-about-the-way-you-look benefits of wearing such a stylish accessory, our experience with our customers tell us that there are a lot of us out there who have experienced the benefits of magnet therapy and will vouch for it.
As we read through our fans’ Testimonials and realize the results observed by them, our team takes their research further to bring valuable information that may support such claims. There are several types of magnet therapy that utilize magnets in different ways:
This type of magnet therapy consists of placing permanent magnets on certain parts of the body to relieve pain. Magnetic bracelets are a perfect example of a product designed to maintain the magnets in contact with the body.
The strength of different types of magnets varies and is measured in gauss. Magnets used for this kind of magnet therapy can vary in strength, from 200 to 1,200 gauss.
Pulse magnetic therapy has been accredited in the U.S., since 1991, by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) “for use within the remedy of palliative post-operative pain and swelling, particularly about the remedy of surface soft tissue.”
Used most often by orthopedists, PEMF sessions require the patient to have electromagnetic pulses directly applied to the injury to reduce pain. Electromagnets generate magnetic fields only when electrical current flows through them and are currently used under the supervision of a doctor or in clinical trials.
