Magnetic Bracelets are becoming a trendy way to treat health conditions.
Magnetic therapy increases our circulation, blood flow, and oxygen in a specific area in our body, if blood flow increases then it can help to relieve pain and stiffness, especially if your joints, back, or muscles are swollen or injured.

How Magnetic Bracelets Work
Iron makes up about 4% of the blood that flows through the body. Since iron is attracted to magnets, when magnetic objects are placed on a specific area of the body this attracts the blood flow to that area.
This brings increased oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, since they are also getting increased blow flow, tend to lengthen and become more relaxed. In a typical treatment, small magnets are attached to the acupuncture points of the body by means of adhesive tape.
As the magnets polarize they act in a pulsating manner much like that of manipulating acupuncture needles, with the exception that there is no insertion of needles into the body and no pain associated with this therapy.
Magnetic therapy is an alternative medicine practice involving the use of static magnetic fields. Subjecting certain parts of the body to magnetostatic fields produced by permanent neodymium magnets has beneficial health effects.
Hemoglobin, the blood protein that carries oxygen, is weakly diamagnetic (when oxygenated) or paramagnetic (when deoxygenated).
Magnetic therapy works like this: Magnets increase blood flow to the area they touch by attracting the iron in the blood, and by relaxing capillary walls, surrounding muscle, and connective tissue. The increased blood flow brings more oxygen and nutrients to the injured or painful body part, thus rushing the healing.
But beware of the serious contraindications of magnetic therapy: pregnancy, small babies, or if you are wearing a pacemaker, a defibrillator, an insulin pump, or any other implanted electro-medical device.
