How Do Magnets Work?
There is still much research and debate about how magnets work. Different theories have been put forward by manufactures of magnetic products. Here is a summary of the largely accepted views held by doctors and researchers.
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 haemoglobin in the blood vessels is accelerated- this has been observed in both thermo graphic 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 per cent using the Norso Dynamag technology. High-strength magnets can cause anaesthesia, 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.
Two vital things occur when a magnet is placed on the skin. The soft tissue will lengthen and help to relax a muscle or ligament that is damaged/traumatized. It will work in an area and depth directly proportionate to the type and strength of magnet used. 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 and one magnet and to a similar depth.

As the tissue relaxes blood flow that has been blocked from entering the damaged site is allowed in and increased. We can see this by thermal imaging. Normally an injured site, whether arthritis, torn muscles or another condition, will be surrounded by inflammation. This can consist of lactic acids, calcium and other deposits—basically the site id ‘hot’ with acidity. The increase in blood flow brings with it increased alkalinity. Acidity hates to be in an alkaline environment and this is where the body starts to generate its own healing. Magnets merely encourage it in a truly dramatic way. So, the tissue relaxed blood flows increased and detoxify the area started. Next, the thermal impact occurs inside the cells. 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, and they go into the Hall Effect and in doing so get ‘switched on’. This ‘switching on’ means the body kicks in with its own beta-endorphin (pain-relieving) system.
To recap, the Magnet has:
- lengthened and relaxed tissue.
- begun the process of flushing out debris and inflammation from the site.
- kicked in the body’s own pain-relieving system.
A wristband or sufficiently strong bracelet is fine if you have hand or wrist pain, or if you want to maximize your general health and detox your body. You will keep it there, as it is easy to wear there. But there is little point in relaxing and promoting blood flow to your wrist if your problem is your lower back!

Wearing a magnet anywhere on the body will still have the same detoxifying effect on the blood, after a period of time. As mentioned before, the agitation within the circulating cells releases the debris that clings to the walls of the cell. One thing you must remember when you use magnet therapy is to drink at least 4-5 glasses of water a day. You need to flush out of your system the toxins the magnets are releasing. Coffee, tea (whether herbal or not) and fruit juice are just not the same as water. The liver reads them as food.
If your general health is good, and you have no immediate areas to be healed, then by all means wear a magnetic bracelet. It is the simplest most effective way of compensating for man-made EMF (electro-magnetic field) pollutants that deplete our systems. It will help to boost and support the body’s own bio-energy system. Choose a ‘north-pole’ bracelet and make sure it is sufficiently strong to affect changes.
Before you buy your magnets:
You must to remember one or two key points in determining the right product to buy. You have to remember the term GAUSS RATING. The gauss of a magnet determines it strength. There is a gauss at the centre (core) of the magnet and one at its surface.
- NEODYMIUM – The ‘King’ of Magnets.
Top-quality neodymium will have surface gauss of 1,200 or higher. This magnet will have an impact of 3-4 inches on the skin both in radius and in depth of penetration.
They are called ‘permanent’ magnets and they will hold their fields for up to 15 years. These magnets should be used for most soft-tissue damage as they are the most likely to get the best results in areas such as back, knees, hips, shoulders etc..
- A less expensive magnet is a FLEXIBLE one. A flexible is approximately 2,750 gauss at its core. This will have an impact on tissue of between 1-2 inches. Flexible magnets are used for fingers, thumbs and wrist wraps, where less penetration is required. They are also available for backs and knees, but for these deeper areas the use of neodymium magnets are strongly advised.
- CERAMIC magnets are generally found in pillow pads and sleep systems. Their gauss is 3,950 and they promote relaxation whilst you sleep. They also kick in the pineal gland.
