We Are Norstar Magnetics…
Hello and welcome to Norstar Magnetics. We are a well-known, reputable provider of magnetic therapy products and have offered help and advice to thousands of customers over the years since our launch in 2007. We strive to become the leading provider of the latest magnet therapy products to help many different ailments, specifically pain relief.
Magnet therapy is not a new fad, but one steeped in history. Magnets have been used for years, centuries even by the Chinese and Egyptians, to help treat ailments such as pain, muscle strain and headaches. Nowadays, we see magnet therapy being used to help maintain blood pressure, ease arthritis, manage pain and more.
So What Is Magnetic Therapy?
Magnet therapy is the use of magnets to help treat certain conditions. Magnets are applied to the body in various ways depending on the ailment and can either be static, or the more recent application of PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) magnetism. You can have magnetic bracelets, mattress pads, lumbar supports and handheld magnetic wands. Magnetic therapy is versatile – there is a product to help in any situation.
Since using magnets to treat conditions such as arthritis and pain relief is a totally natural approach, without using drug based intervention, its popularity is on the rise – mainly due to the general rise in the use of, and interest in, complimentary therapies. That, coupled with the fact that it has a great many testimonials to its success and it can be inexpensive to use makes it the perfect choice for those experiencing pain, muscle or tissue problems, headaches and other such conditions.
Magnet therapy can also be used on animals and is widely used in the equine industry both for healing injury to horses and to improve their performance. Many people have testified to its success with their pets – there was even the case of the famous dog who jumped into the Thames whilst David Walliams was doing his sponsored swim – he saved the dog, who was being treated with magnet therapy!
How Does Magnet Therapy Work?
Whether you a wearing a magnetic bracelet, holding a magnetic wand to your body or sleeping on a magnetic mattress pad, magnetic therapy is said to work in the same way and treats the overall wellbeing of your body. There are two types of magnet therapy – static and PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field).

The Secret Behind Magnet Therapy
We have seen many customers who have told us that magnet therapy worked for them. People with arthritis seeming improvement in mobility and pain. People who are in need of back pain relief finding the application of magnets eased their discomfort. People suffering from headaches who have found magnetic therapy to have helped ease them. These are testimonials we hear all the time.
Since the medical profession has not hugely studied magnetic therapy, there is often some controversy around its effectiveness. The scientific evidence on magnet therapy has been poor quality and conflicting in its investigations. This is the same for a lot of complimentary therapies – and yet people use them more and more because they see benefit from it. Health practitioners, doctors, sports personalities and the general public support its use for pain relief and stiff joints. It’s a growing market, with magnetic products being used by an estimated 35 million customers in 22 countries. (Dr Mark Atkinson, Norstar Biomagnetics).
So – the best way to know if magnet therapy works is to try it yourself. Everyone is different – what works for some may not work for others – it’s about finding that right therapy for you and your condition.

Applying magnets to the site of pain or the area of the body affected can improve blood circulation in that area which in turn provides more oxygen to the site and aids healing. Since blood moves around your body, the theory is that it will come into contact with the magnet and that area and help to flush any toxins away. This in turn reduces swelling, redness and can regenerate nerve function and joint or bone damage. Anyone using magnet therapy must drink lots of water to aid the healing process and flush toxins away more effectively.
