So here’s the deal, you order a magnetic bracelet online, it arrives a few days later, you try it on and – oh bugger! it’s too big! It’s floppy and it keeps sliding over your hand and onto the floor. You were careful not to buy one that was too small, because you didn’t want it to cut off your blood circulation and now your stuck with one that’s too big instead!

That means I’m gonna have to send it back! you think.That means I’m gonna have to wait another few days!

Worse still, you think you’re going to have to pay extra…

Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!

At least, if you bought it from Magnetic Products Store. Because MPS includes a FREE links removal tool with every links bracelet they sell! And, of course, Magnetic Products Store provides clear instructions – with pictures – on how to use the tool, making removal of surplus links a doddle. (That means making it easy to you Yanks, Aussies and Kiwis out there!)

Of course, the problem of the wrong size bracelet only applies to links bracelets. If you buy one of the MPS range of expanding bracelets, it slips over the hand and snaps back into place over the wrist, fittings many different wrist circumferences. And, of course, it also has no fiddle or tricky clasp to contend with. I’m tempted to paraphrase Tolkien and say: One bracelet to fit them all.

Oh bugger! Oh Bilbo Bugger! I’ve just said it!

We’re a couple of sports!

That’s a line from an old Judy Garland film called Easter Parade. That’s kind of relevant because we’re coming up to Easter now – the de facto start of Spring. And, of course, Spring is also the time when we spring into action and become more active. For many people that means taking up sport. Yes, I know, professionals may do sport all year round, but we amateurs tend to give it a miss in Winter. But, in the Spring, a middle-aged person’s fancy lightly turns to thought of sport. (Apologies to Alfred Lord Tennyson!)

Of course, with sport comes sports injuries. We sometimes tend to overreach ourselves and overdo the physical exertions.

That’s why Magnetic products Store offers a wide range of magnetic bracelets with for sports. The silicone wristband above (not the one on the right) is one such example. Made of strong yet elastic silicone, it has no clasp and stretches to put it on. As it is waterproof, it is ideal for swimmers. It is also hypoallergenic. The extra strong magnets are embedded in the silicone, so no metal comes into contact with your skin!

Even Golfers – whose sport was once described by Mark Twain as “a good walk spoiled” are more than capable of doing themselves a mischief as they try to drive that ball down the fairway. Wrist injuries are especially common, followed by muscle tension and elbow injuries. So, for golfers, MPS offer that Augusta Bio Golfers wristband (illustrated on the left). The magnetic strength is an astonishing 6,500 Gauss and the strap is made of soft genuine leather. It is a fine product and every golfer should have one.

Rugby and Aussie rules football also have their fair share of injury. And basketball players. Magnetic Products Store has the widest range of bracelets, bangles and wrist bands – including many for sports. MPS also offers neoprene magnetic wraps for the neck, elbow, knee and ankle for those with sports injuries, sprains or strains.

These products are a useful adjunct to your sports equipment and well-worth having. It may even be worth having a spare. You never know. You hope you won’t be needing it, but it is good to have in your sports bag just in case.

Give your lover a magnetic bracelet for Valentine’s Day

Tennis Summer Sky

It’s only four days away! Yes, I’m talking about St. Valentine’s Day. And how are going to show the one you love just how much you love them? A card? A box of chocolates? Flowers?

How about some jewellery?

“Jewellery? Are you crazy! I love her [or “him”] but I’m not made of money!”

Well that’s true. In these days of recession and austerity, times are hard. Even bank managers are struggling! (I bet you feel sorry for them, don’t you?) And even policemen, who are actually quite well paid. The other day a policeman was telling me: “I used to pound the beat, but now I’m struggling to beat the pound!”

Ah, fear and whinge no more, my fellow citizen of this austerity-ridden world, for the answer is upon us. And it comes in the form of magnetic jewellery from the Magnetic Products Store. Magnetic and copper bracelets and bangles have the dual purpose of using magnets for healing (such as copper bracelets for arthritis) and looking good.

The store offers a range of bracelets for men and women. The men’s bracelets contain extra strong magnets (also known as therapy magnets) and also include sports magnets and men’s bangles.  And in this promotion for St. Valentine’s Day, they also offer some of the best bracelets for women.

Take a look and pick up a bargain there. But don’t tell your lover that it’s a bargain. Let them tell you that it’s a lovely bracelet.

Magnetic Products Store is doing a giveaway

Europe titanium magnetic bracelet

Europe’s largest retailer of magnetic bracelets (by range) Magnetic Products Store, is doing a giveaway of a magnetic bracelet to one lucky man or woman, from their Facebook page to “brighten up someone’s winter.” The rationale behind the giveaway, is that winter is dark and gloomy and people need something to cheer them up a little.

“In December we have Christmas and the New Year to look forward to,” an MPS® spokesman said. “But in January, the seasonal celebrations are behind us, but there’s a long bout of cold, rain and gloom ahead of us before the first shoots of spring pop their timid heads through the frozen soil. And to add to our woes, we’ve got all those Christmas credit card bills to pay.

The good thing about magnetic bracelets is that they work at many levels. At the most obvious level, there are, of course, the magnets. But as we’ve said many times before, it’s not just about the strength of the magnets. Magnetic jewellery is designed to be pleasing to the eye. It is the ultimate placebo – in the literal sense. (Nerdy, scholarly note: Placebo is Latin for “I shall please.”)

However, the giveaway won’t last long. results are due on February 6, unless they decide to extend it. So if you want to enter, you’d better get your skates on. Just click on the link above, log in to Facebook and register.

Magnetic bracelets versus winter blues… and the winner is…

One of the questions we are often asked is whether magnetic bracelets can be used for psychological therapy, as opposed to its physical counterpart. This is particularly important at this time of year. January is cold and gloomy, its days short and its mood one of utter depression. Unlike December, which offers us Christmas and then the New Year, January offers us nothing by way of good cheer. It is the time when the winter blues really set in.

So if magnetic therapy with an emphasis on psychological benefit is ever needed by the general masses, it is in January.

Unfortunately, there is no scientific evidence that magnetic bracelets can cure depression. But hold your horses there, isn’t that the whole point of psychosomatic action? Whenever magnetic bracelets or other magnetic jewellery appears to work, it is dismissed by the sceptics as the”placebo effect.” In other words, it makes the person feel better psychologically. And in the case of winter depression there is a specific malady known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (or SAD) that is well-known to psychologists and that is crying out for treatment.

 

brs4-2-ta-wmpsAnd how might the placebo effect work with magnetic jewellery against Seasonal Affective Disorder? Well first of all the act of purchasing a magnetic bracelet might itself give a modicum of pleasure. They don’t, after all, call it “retail therapy” for nothing. But aside from that, magnetic jewellery has that very attribute that is the most powerful antidote to the darkness and dreariness of winter: they are bright and shiny – whether made of stainless steel or polished copper.

And they are especially affordable right now, because the January sale is in progress at MPS, with discounts up to 80%. So if now is a time to buy an affordable magnetic bracelets like the ones pictured here and beat those winter blues.

Magnetic attractiveness

bac-70-c-emps“So which of them is strongest?”

Now I’m not talking about Thor versus the Incredible Hulk or Superman versus Goliath. No  I’m talking magnets. A lot of first time customers raise this question when considering a purchase from Magnetic Products Store. But strength is a bit of a red herring. It would be like a woman looking for a husband on a basis of how big his muscles are instead of whether he uses those muscles to actually help around the house!

bat-5-wmps-510Now strength is important – for a handyman and a magnetic bracelet alike. In fact, there are some eastern cultures where men seek to marry strong women who can carry water (and children) over great distances. But even where strength is important, it’s not the be all and end all of the subject.  Indeed, some double-blind studies have shown that magnets outperform placebo (fake) magnets in their therapeutic and palliative effects whether they be strong or weak. To use an analogy drawn from conventional healthcare precepts: it isn’t about the strength of the medicine or the size of the dose; it’s about getting it right and regularly.

brtd-23-wmpsSo what then should you look for in a magnet if not the strength of the magnetic attraction? The answer is the attractiveness. See the subtle difference. It doesn’t matter how strongly the bracelet is attracted to iron. What matters is how strongly you are attracted to the bracelet. If the bracelet is attractive to your eye then it means that the bracelet is attracting you. It is like the broomsticks in Harry Potter. They choose their owner, not the other way round. It’s the same with magnetic bracelets – although the “magic” here is more of the poetic than the literal variety. You are attracted to what you like. Your own eyes are the final arbiter.

brtsw-7-wmps-gAnd – ironically, when we are talking about eyes – this is what some people lose sight of. A magnetic bracelet works in a number of ways. The magnets are only one of those ways. Your aesthetic taste is another. Some people say that magnetic bracelets only work because of the placebo effect. Well, in fact, that’s truer than they think. Because the word “placebo” comes from the Latin “I shall please.” And what could be more pleasing than that which makes the eye rejoice. And where the eye rejoices, the heart, mind and body will surely follow.

 

Can a bracelet get rid of arthritic pains?

brtd-23-wmpsPhrased like that in sounds like somebody is setting up the magnetic industry for a fall – or at least a challenge. After all mainstream medicine refuses to recognize it.  But some doctors are hesitantly acknowledging that magnetic bracelets may have some therapeutic effect after all – at least to the extent that they reduce pain. It is quite possible that more individual doctors would be ready to speak out in favour magnetic and copper jewellery for the treatment of chronic ailments were it not for the fact that in doing so they risk being ostracised – and worse – by their fellow physicians.

hp-5-ampsWhere then, does this leave the patient? The answer is pretty much in limbo as they have to decide for themselves whether to believe the  narrow-minded doctors or the evidence of various limited studies that suggest magnetic bracelets and other jewellery can and does reduce the pain that chronic sufferers endure. The learned medicine men – and I don’t mean the Indians – are quick to counter that it is all due to the placebo effect and the purveyors of these products are just cowboys.  But the fact is that many of these studies are double-blind and that pretty much puts the kibosh on the arguments of the doubters.
