The Magnetic family

Many people are familiar with the use of magnets for therapy, but some are quite surprised by the number of types of magnet available. I am referring not to the types and styles of magnetic bracelet used in therapy such a titanium magnetic bracelets, magnetic bracelets of silicone and the very popular hematite bracelets. I mean rather the fundamental types.

Broadly speaking there are three types of permanent magnet. There are the common and inexpensive ferrite magnets, the expensive but very powerful rare earth magnets and finally the rather exotic alnico magnets, which derive their name from the elements aluminium, nickel and cobalt.

All permanent magnets are built around iron, with the various added ingredients being used to vary the magnetic and other properties of the magnets. In some cases the elements are added to iron to give these magnets extra strength. However they can add other characteristics such as durability, reduction of oxidization etc.

Alnico magnets for example are magnetically stronger than ferrites but cheaper than rare earths, giving them a good price performance ratio. For this reason, in addition to their use in magnetic therapy, they are also in fact are widely used in motors and electro-acoustic equipment such as microphones, loudspeakers and electric guitar pickups. Their one drawback however is that they tend to lose their magnetism over time unless they are either subject to an electromagnetic field or attached to an iron shield (sometimes called a “keeper”) to protect them from this process of magnetic degradation.

Ferrites, the mainstay of the magnetic therapy industry, are also sometimes called ceramic magnets. They produced by a process known as sintering which involves heating their constituents in powdered form and moulding them under high pressure. In addition to iron, their constituents may include barium, strontium or even a plastic like substance to produce what are sometimes called “rubber magnets.”

Finally the rare earth magnets have their properties enhanced by neodymium and boron or samarium and cobalt. Both these types of magnet are expensive.

Whichever process is used, the resulting magnets can be placed in magnetic therapy bracelets and other magnet therapy products where they can be used to provide a whole range of health benefits to those who wear and use them.

Treating Arthritis with Magnetic Bracelets

It appears to us from the feedback we are receiving from our customers that they proud supporters of using the unique benefits of treating arthritis with magnetic bracelets. Many others, mostly people that never used magnetic therapy, remain sceptic.

For this reason, it has become an issue of controversy between those that did not try magnetic therapy and do not believe in it, and those who actually used magnetic therapy.  

And so it remains a hot topic in the world of medicine today.

With an estimated 8.5 million people in the UK suffering from different forms of arthritis, the suggestion that the inflammation that arthritis brings can be eased with something as simple as magnetic bracelet, it is no wonder that it is such a debated issue.

According to, there has been in recent years, and continues to be large volume of research conducted about using magnets to eliminate arthritic ailments which has demonstrated that magnetic bracelets, can be an effective method of pain management.

In the United States alone it is reported that as many as one in three adults are being affected by different forms of arthritis, with more than 70 million Americans suffering from the disease.

The Arthritis and Glucosamine Resource Centre reported that in a research carried out to whether or not magnetic bracelets are effective in fighting arthritis pain which questioned whether a ‘placebo effect’ of wearing a magnetic bracelet is the cause for arthritis patients endorsing that the bracelets create pain relief, it was concluded that arthritis patients should embrace magnetic bracelets with an open mind.
