Frequently Asked Questions

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 will vary from person to person. Some people enjoy much less pain and much better sleep from the outset, while for others it can take longer. Often a family member or close friend will notice you are moving more freely or sleeping better and longer than before. And those painful muscle cramps in the early morning hours will be gone.

WILL MY UNDERLAY STILL WORK WITHOUT PILLOW PADS?
Magne-Sleep will still work without the Magnetic Pillow Pads in place. Instead use them away from your bed as a Portable Pain Relief Pad. Use to treat neck or shoulder stiffness, migraine and tinnitus discomfit. Your furry friends will also enjoy the healing benefits of your Pillow Pads.

WILL I BE ABLE TO FEEL THE MAGNETS?
Both our Cotton Quilted Magne-Sleep and 500gsm Lambswool Magne-Sleep Underlays have a deeply padded inner that cushions the rows of magnets so all you will notice is the soothing healing benefits of magnetic therapy.

CAN I SLEEP ON THE REVERSE SIDE OF A MAGNETIC UNDERLAY?
We strongly advise you only rest on “North Seeking” or “Negative “ side of a magnetic underlay. The North Seeking Negative side is universally acknowledged as being ideal for gentle healing magnetic therapy and better restful sleep. The “South Seeking” or “Positive” side is widely acknowledged as being too aggressive for gentle healing sleep. Be wary of “reversible” all seasons magnetic underlays as the magnetic inner will need to be reversible as well.

WHAT MAGNETS DO YOU USE?
We use a large 23mm x 3mm Ceramic Strontium Ferrite Magnet with a surface strength of approx 1200 gauss. We use a larger magnet. They sit very flat and stable and give better body penetration. Each magnet is glued and individually stitched in place so there is no chance of magnets “moving” or “clumping”. All our magnets are placed in a continuous grid pattern with the “North Seeking” or “Negative” side uppermost to the body, for ideal gentle magnetic therapy. For the best results place your Magne-Sleep closest to the 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. For help phone:  09 431 523.

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 MAGNE-SLEEP SIT FLAT & STABLE ON MY MATTRESS?
Yes both Lambswool Magne-Sleep and Pure Cotton Magne-Sleep will give a flat stable mattress fit. Lambswool Magne-Sleep has 4 x corner straps plus 2 x crosswise straps for extra stability. Our Pure Cotton Magne-Sleep has 4 x Corner straps plus 1 x midway crosswise elastic strap.

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.

CLINICAL STUDIES
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”.
