Q magnets are often attached with sports tape, but some people with sensitive or hairy skin or just for convenience sake, may prefer a type of brace.
For practitioners of Dr Goiz Biomagnetic Pairing, the following should be useful in explaining the differences with Q magnets and how they are best used.
Q magnets are a Quadrapolar magnet (four alternating poles NSNS) that produce an optimised field for enhanced effects. They are placed directly over the site of injury and/or the nerves that innervate that area so that the magnetic field envelopes the target tissue. So the design of the magnet and accurate placement is essential for good results.
For most people, the exposure to static magnetic fields is considered very safe. Probably the most serious risk is for those who have a pacemaker. In fact, one published study stated that small Neodymium magnets (around 10mm in size) needed to be as close as 3cm (just over an inch) to interfere with a pacemaker. Here is a comprehensive list of warnings…
IF YOU HAVE chest pain, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of an ischemic attack or heart attack do not use static magnets until you have been seen by a physician. If you suspect an UNDERLYING MEDICAL PROBLEM, or your pain is severe and cannot be relieved with the use of static magnets, please consult your health care provider.
Using a big hammer to tap in a small tack is not the best tool for the job, so too the biggest and strongest magnet is not always the best option for pain relief.
