Do Magnetic bracelets work? Depends who you ask!

Should we ask the question do the magnetic bracelets really work or should we go for broke and ask how do magnetic bracelets work? It’s harder than you think. Like a chicken and egg question. Do we presume that they work and look for the mechanism? Or do we start off assuming nothing, like orthodox scientists. It was after all George Francis Gillette who said “there is no ox so dumb as the orthodox.

But was that just the voice of an embittered would-be scientist or a legitimate criticism of those who are incapable of thinking outside the box? Does it even matter? The important thing is that user experience has endorsed this alternative approach even if the mainstream medical community has not. So while the medical community lags behind and either ignores the issue altogether or tentatively asks does magnetic therapy work, the more enlightened and open-minded seeker of answers, instead asks a deeper query of magnetic bracelets – how do they work?

As yet there is no definitive answer, although – needless to say – some theories have been put forward. But of more interest perhaps is the what rather than the why. As in the inquiry that asks what do magnetic bracelets help with? The usual answers are arthritis and headaches. But how much evidence is there to support those claims. Sure we can ask, hopefully, do magnetic bracelets work for arthritis? But as fast as one study says that they do, another study comes along and says actually no, they don’t. Accepting new ideas in medicine is slow. That’s because whenever an innovation comes along, the specter of thalidomide hangs over it.

And of course the same goes for hypertension and its consequences. Do magnetic bracelets work for headaches? There are no medical studies or trials that say they do. But there was a study that said that treatment with pulses from high-power electromagnets could reduce the severity and frequency of migraines. So at least when some one asks do magnets really help with pain, we can answer in the affirmative – albeit to a limited degree. Then maybe the same question could be asked of arthritis. Do magnets work for arthritis, even if not of the kind you wear on your wrist?

Alas no similar study had been undertaken for the use of such high power magnets on arthritis patients as in the migraine study. So there is no data one way or the other on that one. On the other hand, there was a study in 2004 by Tim Harlow of the Peninsula Medical School that concluded that magnetic bracelets ‘ease aches’ in osteoarthritis sufferers specifically. So magnetic bracelets DO work, say researchers, albeit in the case of one particular ailment.

But what are the benefits of magnetic bracelets to those who suffer from other chronic conditions? Do magnetic bracelets really help with pain in general? Or one type of ailment only?

Of course it is good to be able to cite the recognized positives of such treatment.  There may only be limited things one can say about health benefits of magnetic bracelets – safe alternative medicine, at least even if not yet guaranteed to be effective treatment. But at least we can say, when someone asks “What is a healing bracelet?” that the answer is: whatever works for you.


Guess that it was bound to happen


…Just a habit of mine.

I keep talking about why customers are happy / But forgetting ’bout what makes them whine.

Now it seems I was doing a puff job / Just an ordinary blog couldn’t do.

But I can’t turn a blind eye to what’s bugging you.

You’ve really got to hand it to me / I praised Magnetic Products Store

And just when you thought I’d gone away / I came back and then praised them some more.

I was trying to make customers happy / that’s the thing that good salespeople do.

But I can’t turn a blind eye to what’s bugging you.


What AM I banging on about? Those of you too young to remember Jim Croce won’t have a clue. Okay so let me put you out of your misery. Most customers are very happy. End of! But a few are not. That is to say, they love the product they purchased, but they have some small, nagging problems that spoil an otherwise perfect customer experience.

Fortunately, MPS does not take its customers for granted. And so on their website they have an entire section devoted to Troubleshooting. For example, supposing there is a problem opening the clasp? What if it keeps getting stuck? The MPS troubleshooting section has a very good HELP Page for this.


Fix the clasp

What more can I say. Check out the other MPS Troubleshooting pages for problems like how to remove links from regular or expanding bracelets. Oh and one more thing:

Clasps are made for opening / and for snapping shut too

And links are now made for removing / If the bracelet is large and it doesn’t fit you.

Still I hope that you can find a bracelet that suits your style and taste

If you cannot find the one you want then this entire blog is a waste.

’cause they’re trying to keep customers happy / that’s the thing all good retailers do.

And I’m sure that MPS will have the one for you.


Happy customers

OsirisCustomer satisfaction is the gold standard in retail. And the same of course applies to it’s 21st century counterpart: eTail. In fact, customer satisfaction is even more important in electronic retail, because even one-off customers can check up on a retailer’s reputation by looking up the retailer’s name on the worldwide web. Customer satisfaction is now just a few mouse clicks away for anyone with access to the internet. (And let’s face it: if they don’t have access to the internet, then they’re not going to be your customers anyway!)

So what do customers say about Magnetic Products Store? A good way to find out is to check up on Here are some examples:

“This is my second purchase from MPS and I have recommended them to a number of my friends.” [David]

Or as Robert said:

“I have purchased 3 -4 magnetic bracelets from MPS and found their products to be excellent value for money and of good quality with a fast delivery service. I would recommend this company to family and friends. I will be using this services again in the near future.”

But it’s not just the quality of the products that’s important. It’s also the speed of delivery. To quote Catherine, another verified buyer:

“Excellent ordered lunchtime and it was delivered lunchtime next day very very good service”

Tennis Summer Sky

A sentiment echoed by William:

“The delivery service was very good, I ordered it at 14:00 hrs and I received it next day. Wow.”

But it’s still the quality of the products that counts the most, something that “Sash” realized intuitively:

“MPS bracelets are great products and solidly built. Previously I had bought a black Titanium bracelet which I still wear (over 3yrs old and no issue) but wanted to buy one for my other half. The selections were great and the products were posted quickly and I received them within 2 days. The bracelets themselves are solidly built and the magnets are powerful. I really like the products from this company.”

So while the skeptics who doubt the value of magnetic therapy rage on, the customers themselves are more than satisfied: they are wildly enthusiastic.

Do you believe in fairies?

Fairies AlluringIn addition to acrimonious family dinners and drunk driving and commercialism gone insane, Christmas is also the time for pantomime. Yes we all know them: Cinderella, Aladdin, Dick Whittington, Sleeping Beauty and my personal favourite: Peter Pan. Written by J M Barrie – who bequeathed the copyright to Great Ormand Street Children’s Hospital. Now of course there’s so much to remember about Peter Pan. But we all remember it. Tiger Lily’s dance (for the dads!). Tick-tock the crocodile. The villain captain Hook (who even has his very own modern day counterpart). And of course…Tinkerbell! The fairy!

“Do you believe in fairies?” asks Peter, as Tinkerbell is dying – presumably due to someone somewhere saying that he doesn’t. At which point the play lapses into the most shameless piece of audience manipulation. Now of course, believing in fairies is one thing. Finding them is another. They are, shall we say, quite shy and elusive. It’s hard to even catch a glimpse of one, let alone attract one.

But there is a solution. And it is based on the concept of magnetic attraction. The fairies alluring stainless steel 4- elements magnetic bracelet from MPS is guaranteed to attract fairies from within a 12 mile radius! Of course that doesn’t mean it will attract all fairies from within such a radius. After all you might be competing with someone else who has a similar bracelet and who happens to be nearer to the fairy. But if you are nearer, you will get the fairy. And once you’ve got the fairy, it’s yours for life – or at least as long as you treat the creature with kindness. It’s like these Pokemon Go characters. Same principle. You have to get in first.

But the best thing is that the bracelet is affordable. Just remember one thing. If you have a Wendy in your life as well as a Tinkerbell, there could be a little… rivalry.

A lady twisted her ankle

That sounds like the beginning of a joke.  Interesting that… how we find other people’s suffering amusing. Or maybe I’m wide of the mark here. Maybe it’s the impersonal nature of the sentence that makes it sound like the stuff of humour.

The truth of the matter is that the lady in question was a friend of mine. So perhaps I should have said “a lady friend of mine,” instead of just “a lady.” But therein lies the dilemma. What if she’s reading this article? What if she doesn’t want me to talk about our personal matters. Like the fact that she twisted her ankle. Well, maybe that’s not so personal. How about…

neoprene-anke-wrapBut therein lies the dilemma. What if she’s reading this article? What if she doesn’t want me to talk about our personal matters. Like the fact that she twisted her ankle. Well, maybe that’s not so personal. How about how she twisted it. Yes, that is personal. In fact, it’s very personal…

So perhaps I shouldn’t talk so much about the cause. Instead, maybe I’ll focus on how to avoid it.  I don’t mean be careful about skinny dipping and running naked through the woods when you hear a police siren. (Oh sorry, I said I wouldn’t mention it.) Rather what I mean is… actually, there is no way to avoid it. But when it happens, there are ways to make it heal more quickly. Like a magnetic ankle wrap.

Anyway, I have been indiscreet enough, so I think it’s time for me to sign off. I just hope the lady in question isn’t reading this…

Time waits for no man…

Almada Premium IonTopia Bracelet Have you noticed how summer seems to go by so quickly. If only someone could invent a magnetic bracelet that could actually make time run slower (or better still turn it backward) that would truly be a boon to mankind. Unfortunately, that is the stuff of fairy stories. And as one of the characters said in ET: “This is reality!”

So no time-warping magnetic bracelets just yet – not unless Doctor Who puts in an appearance. So what’s to be done? Well if we can’t turn back time, can we not at least use it more wisely? Of course, we can. But for that, we must feel good. We need more energy. And one way to get it is with magnetic bracelets, such as the IonTopia range of Magnetic Products Store.

ALPDA CrucisThis range is unique to MPS and is on the cutting edge of magnetic therapy and the use of magnets for health. But better yet is the fact that these bracelets look so classy. None of that poorly-made rubbish you get in some places. It is this combination of the positive therapeutic effects of these bracelets and their aesthetic beauty – itself an inherent contributory cause to the feel-good factor – that makes them worth taking a look at… and even buying.

Gold, silver and bronze

bac-72-c-emps-bronzeWe are now well and truly in the season of summer sports. Wimbledon is over, so bring on the Rio 2016 Olympics. That means sports injuries. Not so much the break you leg kind. The more the repetitive strain injury kind. One of the best ways to deal with these – and even to reduce the risk of them in the first place – is to wear a magnetic sports bracelet or wristband.

But aside from that wouldn’t you like a taste of the gold, or at least the silver. Maybe you’d even settle for the bronze. Well Magnetic Products Store has something for everyone. For the bronze there’s the vast range of copper bracelets (bronze being eight parts copper to one part tin). But what if you’re more ambitious than that? Maybe you’d like the silver?

bacs-7-wmps-510 (1) silverWell MPS has an impressive array of silver bracelets and bangles too, like the modern-looking one on the right. They also have designs that are a nod in the direction of antiquity, like the magnificent ABHAY Gothic bracelet below.

Who can gaze upon that bangle and not think about the ancient Olympic games in classical Greece during the great Helenic period?

bac-69-as-wmps-510 silverOf course in those days, they gave out laurel wreaths rather than medals. But metal is so much longer-lasting.

But what if you a true competitor and will settle for nothing less than gold? Then you will presumably only be satisfied with something like the gold-plated bangle below.

Of course, if mental games and intellectual competition are more your scene, then you might be interested in taking a survey on your game-playing habits, or check out this new game being developed, and it’s associated page on Facebook.

Indeed, the ancient Greeks used to love sport and mathematics. After all, mathematics is the sport of the mind, and sport is the mathematics of the body. But whatever your preference, remember what they say: It isn’t the winning, but the taking part!
