Myth 7: Your magnetic bracelet MUST fit correctly or you will lose 75% of its
If you have or you are about to buy a magnetic bracelet and it does not fit your
wrist size correctly you may as well not even bother wearing it! This may sound
harsh but it’s the plain and simple truth.
Your magnetic bracelet should fit snugly but not to tight around your wrist. If
you have more than ¾ inch slack between your magnetic bracelet and your skin the
‘air gap’ (the distance between the magnet and the skin that the magnetic flux
must travel across) will be too great and the magnetic field will not penetrate
through your skin ad into your body correctly.
On the other hand if your magnetic bracelet is too tight and has no ‘slack’ to
allow for a small amount movement around the wrist it can cause problems. A
bracelet that is too tight could potentially cause your hand or arm to swell as
your circulation could become impeded.
How to ensure your magnetic bracelet fits perfectly
The ideal length of a magnetic bracelet should be approximately ½ inch longer
than your tight wrist circumference. To find this measurement follow this simple
1. Take a flexible tape measure (not a builders tape) and measure the wrist in
between the area from the hand and the small protruding wrist bone.
2. Pull the tape tight so that is fits around the wrist like a wrist watch.
3. Note down the tight measurement and then add ½ inch onto the measurement.
4. This measurement will give you the correct length of bracelet for your wrist.
As a rule of thumb, you should be able to easily slip a finger under your
magnetic bracelet when fastened around your wrist.
One more thing to be aware of
When you choose a design of magnetic bracelet always check the length of the
individual links in the bracelet. Different magnetic bracelet designs will have
different length links and not all bracelets can be altered into exact ½ inch
You need to choose a bracelet size that is the closest to your measurement. If
the supplier does not offer a selection of sizes for you to choose form or does
not have any magnetic bracelets that are very near or exactly your size then do
not purchase a bracelet that is either to big or too small for your wrist size,
it will be a complete and utter waste of money.
Please do not buy a magnetic bracelet just because it is pretty and looks like a
nice fashion accessory. If you want fashion jewellery there are plenty of
fashion jewellery sites out on the web.
Magnetic therapy bracelets provide you with a host of health benefits providing
you use them correctly, ensure you are treating the right condition with them
and get the correct strength and size for your needs.
You must remember this at all costs, if you are unsure about a magnetic therapy
suppliers products then you are best to walk away rather than buy something that
you do not know the strength of or are unsure if the bracelet is suitable.
And remember, if you do not know what is the best type of magnetic therapy for
