By simple definition, magnet therapy involves
the use of magnets to treat various ailments and offer relief from chronic
conditions. As we learn more about magnets and their potential to improve
physical and mental health, specific types of magnet therapies have emerged. The three primary therapies are static
magnetic field, electromagnetic field, and magnetic therapy combined with
At IonLoop, our products fall under the
umbrella of static magnetic field therapy, meaning you simply wear a magnet
against your skin, as in the case of our magnet bracelets.
The questions are, why do people pursue magnet
therapy and what good can a magnet bracelet provide for you?
more as we share the latest research behind the applications and opportunities
of magnet therapy.
Making the Case for Magnets
Not everyone agrees why or how magnets might
support health and wellness.
As Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
explains, “People have different theories for why magnets might have an effect
upon the body, but they all generally claim that magnets act upon the body’s
molecules, ions, or “energy field” to correct disruptions.”
Although some people remain skeptical about
the potential benefits of magnets with respect to health and wellness, trusted industry authorities like the National Center for
Biotechnology Information report, “The application of permanent
magnets for treating specific medical problems such as arthritis, chronic pain
syndromes, wound healing, insomnia, headache and others has steadily increased
during the last decade.”
Part of that might be attributed to safety,
with static magnets listed as safe by the National
Center for Complementary and Integrative Health. That said, pregnant women and
individuals with pacemakers are not advised to wear magnet bracelets.
So, how do these magnets impact the body?
As we’ve shared on our website, “there’s evidence
that suggests that magnets may increase activity in the blood flow which in
turn would result in a more efficient flow of oxygen and nutrients through the
body.” For this reason, magnets might help expedite the body’s natural healing
process and improve energy overall.
Along with pain management and wound healing, magnetic therapy has also been used to treat the
following: depression, inflammation, migraines, and fatigue, with
possible benefits also observed in sports-related strains and injuries.

bracelets feature the maximum amount of magnetic power possible. While you
