Magnets have been used for healing purposes for thousands of years all around the world. Historical texts mention the use of magnets in medicine dating as far back as 2000 B.C.
Neodymium Magnet therapy (NMT) is a science that is focused on maintaining the body's proper electromagnetic field to promote wellness. Advancements in science have allowed us to tap into the positive nature of magnets and apply them in ways that are beneficial for our wellness.
Neodymium Magnet therapy offers a simple, effective and natural form of wellness enhancement that can be used with minimal risk of side effects.
The strength of a magnet is measured in units called gauss. Most magnets used for medical and health purposes have a magnetic impact between 30-5,000 gauss. Magnetic Mobility only uses magnets of 3,000 gauss or stronger in our products to ensure you are getting the highest quality medical grade magnet to meet your needs.

Neodymium Magnet Therapy assists with Post-op recovery
After injury or surgery, the alternate use of ice and heat is usually recommended to relieve pain and increase blood flow to heal the injured area. This traditional method works well, but cannot be applied continuously. Neodymium Magnet therapy offers a permanent alternative to assist rapid healing and reduce swelling. Studies have demonstrated that strong magnets have the potential to reduce swelling, bruising, and pain, in those recovering from surgical wounds. When in contact with your body, magnets increase the circulation or flow of your blood. This increase in blood flow then creates an increase in the delivery of oxygen and vital nutrients to the tissues all around your body. When there is extra oxygen and vital nutrients your body's cells can repair and heal faster than normal.
Neodymium Magnet Therapy may help alleviate pain
In a similar way to the post-op recovery process NMT has been shown by scientific studies to reduce swelling when applied immediately after an inflammatory injury. The 2008 study (1) showed that by placing strong magnets next to blood vessels, the subjects were more relaxed and showed an increased blood flow which significantly reduced swelling. This ability to reduce swelling would be very beneficial for people who suffer from pain caused by swelling in the joints, such as Arthritis or Fibromyalgia (1).
Neodymium Magnet Therapy may help to reduce symptoms of Osteoarthritis
In 2004, a study of people with Osteoarthritis examined the effectiveness of magnetic bracelets for pain control. After 12 weeks they found that the wearers of the magnetic bracelets had a decrease in pain by 1.3 points with a confidence level of 95%. Wearers of the placebo bracelets had no reduction in their pain or discomfort. It was reported that the magnetic bracelets had a comforting effect when it came to relieving the pain of those with Osteoarthritis. (2)
Neodymium Magnet Therapy may help alleviate Diabetic Neuropathic Pain
Between 50 and 90% of Diabetics often suffer from pain or numbness in their limbs as a result of nerve damage. In a study published in 2003, 375 Diabetics with Neuropathic pain who wore a magnetic device for one month showed “benefits equal to or better than that from drugs”. The study showed a statistically significant reduction in pain, numbness and tingling after using magnet therapy. (3)
