With Magnetic Therapy, as with all things, there are believers and non-believers. There are potential dangers in using magnets, which is why you will see a warning notice on each page of this website. Nothing is 100% effective or risk free. Even plain aspirin doesn't work for everyone, and it can cause stomach ailments if not used properly. Common sense and a little knowledge need to be applied to whatever you do. Magnets and electronics do not mix especially medical-electronic implants like pacemakers and insulin pumps. One of our best, and nicest, customers has a daughter who, unfortunately, has an implanted insulin pump. When she needs to help her daughter with something, she simply removes her necklace and bracelet for a few minutes.
Thousands of years after the Benefits of Magnets were discovered, there are still questions. Here is a tiny sample of the answers you can find on the internet:
“Our players have used magnets for two years and they have proven to be an effective aid in the recovery of professional football's aches, pains and injuries” (The Miami Dolphins are so confident of the positive effects of magnets, that they have purchased magnetic pads for the players to sit on during games.)
Ryan Vermillion, MD, – Director of Rehabilitation for the Miami Dolphins
“Pain is a universal condition - all of us have it at one time or another. Many people don't like taking drugs, and they are seeking alternative approaches for therapy... I was a skeptic about magnets until I did a study that proved they worked.”
"The majority of patients in the study who received treatment with a magnet reported a significant decrease in pain, and most of the patients who were given a placebo, or inactive magnet, reported very little or no improvement."
... “evaluated the magnet therapy in adults diagnosed with post-polio syndrome who were experiencing arthritic pain in the joints or had identifiable points of pain in their muscles.”
"Seventy-six percent of the patients who had the active magnet reported a decrease in pain, but only 19 percent of the patients treated with a placebo felt an improvement," None of the patients reported any side effects from the treatment.
"We do not have a clear explanation for the significant and quick pain relief observed by the patients in our study. It's possible that the magnetic energy affects the pain receptors in the joints or muscles or lowers the sensation of pain in the brain."
Carlos Vallbona, M.D. – Baylor College of Medicine, Dept. of Family and Community Medicine and Distinguished Service Professor
“They (magnets) have proven effective in more than 80% of patients... In some cases such as carpal tunnel syndrome the success rate is 95%. There's no doubt about it - millions of people can be helped from chronic pain by the use of magnets.”
W. Bradley Worthington, M.D., – Former President of the Tennessee Society of Anesthesiologists
“Magnetic energy has a beneficial effect on blood circulation, lymph flow, hormone production, nerves and muscles.”
Dr. Ulrich Warnke, M.D. – Magnets To Overcome Pain, The New Healing Method.
“We now stand on the verge of a great new age in magnetic science and its applications – a tool that has been provided by Mother Nature herself.”
Dr. Ralph U. Sierra – Power In A Magnet To Heal
“The application of a magnetic field has the virtue of simplicity, freedom from danger and low cost. It offers the lay man or woman a suitable form of self-treatment for the minor ills of everyday life.”

“The astounding results obtained through magnet therapy gives it a place of considerable importance in the field of therapeutics.”
Neville S. Bengali – Magnet Therapy: Theory & Practice

Dr. J. B. Baron, M.D. – Medical Convention at the Baylor College of Medicine, Texas
“I can’t say anything officially yet, but let’s face it: this treatment (magnetic therapy) is a Godsend. It’s good for almost anything.”
Dr. Kenneth S. McLean – MD
“This is the most exciting thing I have seen since I discovered chiropractic for the first time. All chiropractors should know about magnet therapy.”
Dr. George A. Rolfs, D.C. – Energy Therapy

Dr. Louis Donnet, M.D. – Magnets for Your Health

Dr. A.K. Baffacharya, M.D. – Healing By Magnet
“Magnetic therapy in Japan and elsewhere in Europe and Asia has become a kind of folk medicine, a reliable form of medical self-care.”
Richard Leviton – “Healing with Nature’s Energy” East-West Journal, June 1986
“It is hoped that the use of magnetic energy can be kept non-prescriptive for easy availability for home and self use.”
Dr. William H. Philpott, M.D.
