HOW DO MAGNETS WORK?
Magnetic Therapy is an alternative medical practice using static permanent magnets to improve blood flow to places of inflammation often caused by injury or illness. Improved blood flow allows your natural body healers to work with your kidneys to remove toxic by-products and promote healing. Read Healing with Magnets for much more detail.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT RESULTS?
Results can vary from person to person. Some people enjoy much less pain and better sleep from the outset while for others it can take longer. It is often a family member or close friend who will notice change before you do. They may notice you move about more freely or are sleeping longer and deeper than before. And results can often be overnight as you notice you are no longer leaping from bed in the early hours with painful muscle cramps.
And the simple reason: Health magnets gently improve blood flow to body extremities thus helping to reduce inflammation, heal injury or disease and restore and reduce inflammation.
WILL MY UNDERLAY STILL WORK WITHOUT PILLOW PADS?
Magne-Sleep will still work well without Pillow Pads. Use instead as a Portable Pain Relief Pad. They can help relieve neck & shoulder stiffness, migraine and tinnitus discomfit. Your moggies will also love the soothing warmth magnets bring and you should soon notice their improved mobility.
WILL I BE ABLE TO FEEL THE MAGNETS?
No you will not see nor feel the magnets. The Cotton Quilted Cover is well cushioned and the magnetic inner that sits below the cover is also deeply cushioned so you won’t see nor feel the magnets. The same applies to the 500gsm Lambswool Cover but the magnetic inner is removable for easy care of the Lambswool.
CAN I SLEEP ON THE REVERSE SIDE OF A MAGNETIC UNDERLAY?
We strongly advise you only rest on the “North Seeking” or “Negative” side of a magnetic underlay. This “North Seeking” or “Negative” side of the magnet should be uppermost to the body. The North Seeking side of the magnet is universally acknowledged as the best side for gentle healing to bring better restful sleep. The “South Seeking” or “Positive”“South side of a magnet is widely acknowledged as being too aggressive for gentle healing sleep. This side is sometimes used for very short periods to increase blood flow to accelerate healing of extreme sport injury.
WHAT MAGNETS DO YOU USE?
We use a large 23mm x 3mm Ceramic Strontium Ferrite Magnet with a surface strength of approx 1200 gauss. This gives ideal body penetration of about 10cm. We prefer a larger magnet it sits flat and stable on the mattress and gives better body penetration. Each magnet is glued and individually stitched in place so there is no chance of “clumping”. All magnets are placed in a continuous grid pattern with the “North Seeking” or “Negative” side uppermost to the body for ideal magnetic therapy. For the best results place Magne-Sleep closest to your body, directly under the bottom sheet. Your electric blanket can be safely fitted underneath Magne-Sleep.
HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST?
Good quality magnets will slowly reduce in strength over many years. Our magnets are quality ceramic Strontium ferrite so you can expect 10 – 15 years of very good results.
CAN I USE MY ELECTRIC BLANKET?
Yes, you can safely use your electric blanket. We use permanent magnets and they do not emit any frequency. Fit your electric blanket directly underneath Magne-Sleep.
I HAVE A PACEMAKER CAN I STILL SLEEP ON MAGNE-SLEEP?
Unfortunately, you cannot sleep on a Magnetic Underlay, and will need to remove it from your bed. The Magnets could drain power from your pacemaker and it is not possible to monitor the battery usage. The same applies to people using an insulin pump but, in this instance, consult with your medical professional. If the insulin pump battery is visible then battery usage could be closely monitored for re-charge.
I AM PREGNANT CAN I STILL SLEEP ON A MAGNETIC UNDERLAY?
As a precautionary measure we recommend you remove the underlay from your bed, while you are pregnant. There has not been extensive research in this area and we always err on the side of caution. New-born babies and children can safely sleep on Magne-Sleep.
DO YOU OFFER A MONEYBACK GUARANTEE?
Yes, you will receive a written 90 day Moneyback Guarantee with every Magne-Sleep purchase. Delivery is Free in New Zealand. We use New Zealand Post and can be delivered to a Physical, Business or Post Office Box address.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY COTTON QUILTED MAGNE-SLEEP?
We recommend you do not use a washing machine to launder your Cotton Magne-Sleep. Magnets could “jump” or “clump” if they bunch in a confined space. We recommend a cool bath soak, then rinse and hang to dry outdoors on a windy, sunny day.
You could use a commercial front loader at the laundromat.
Do not dryclean nor use a drier. Or free-phone us 800 766 737 for help.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY LAMBSWOOL MAGNE-SLEEP?
Un-zip the cotton undercover then detach the 8 ties and remove the magnetic inner. Machine wash the Lambswool Cover on a cool gentle cycle, making sure the long elastic straps are secured. Hang to dry outdoors.
Do not wash the Magnetic Inner, just air outdoors to refresh.
Re-attach as before, making sure the more “visible” rows of magnets are again facing down to the mattress. Vacuum the Lambswool cover to “fluff” up the fleece. If you wish you can also dry-clean the Lambswool Cover.
WILL MAGNETS AFFECT MY LAPTOP COMPUTER AND MOBILE PHONE?
If you rest a Laptop computer, mobile phone, battery powered watch or any battery driven device on a Magnetic Underlay the magnets could drain power and your devices would need to be recharged more often.
CAN I PLACE MY MATTRESS PROTECTOR ON TOP OF MY MAGNE-SLEEP?
Yes, you can place extra bedding between you and Magne-Sleep, but it will reduce the benefits of magnetic therapy. Magnets lose penetrative strength very quickly so best results come when magnets are close to the body.
CAN MAGNETS CAUSE CANCER?
No magnets do not cause cancer. The magnets we use in Magne-sleep are static and do not emit any frequency.
There have been more than 300 peer-reviewed studies conducted by scientists and clinicians into the functions and effect of biomagnetic therapy. We suggest “Healing with Magnets” for a comprehensive interpretation of these studies.
PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT FOR SPORT & EXERCISE
We have an increasing number of sportsmen and women who are sleeping on a Magne-Sleep enjoying overnight recovery from intense sport or hard work. It is the best way to get back on track each and every day. Getting gentle magnetic therapy while you sleep will boost oxygen and nutrients to tired muscles and aching limbs so you can “Bounce Back Better Every Day”.
