This magnetic bracelet is lightweight enough that I almost forget that I'm wearing it, and its simplicity makes it a lovely to wear. I pulled it out of its box after delivery and found the bracelet enclosed in plastic and while the plastic was a little difficult to remove from the bracelet, it did a good job of protecting my jewellery. It not flimsy or cheap looking. The clasp is very tight when the bracelet is closed, it was a perfect fit for me right out of the box, so I can't speak to how easy/hard it is to remove links for sizing. I looked into the benefits of Therapeutic Hematite Stone Magnets and found that wounds and painful areas of the body are marked by a lack of oxygen, off pH & poor circulation. It is believed that magnetic stimulation helps with the normalization of calcium ion flow which controls the attraction of calcium ions to help heal broken bones or help to remove calcium build-up from painful arthritic joints. The acid / alkaline [pH] balance of body fluids can be altered by magnetic fields; magnetic fields also alter enzyme activity & biochemical processes with the lower frequencies relieving pain, inflammation and bruising, using the higher frequencies for the relaxing of blood vessels allowing increased
blood flow for a boost to your natural healing abilities. A negative magnetic field is used to normalize disturbed metabolic functions causing painful conditions like inflammation and cell degeneration. Magnetic fields put directly on top of the head have been proven to have a calming effect. Keeping a chart of reflexology acupressure [Shiatsu] points to know where the most effective placement are for your ailments. Example: wear your magnetic bracelet on your left wrist for back pain being the acupressure points for the spine are nearby. Wear your bracelet on your right wrist if you have gastrointestinal problems. I am wearing mine on my right wrist and have to say that the bloated feeling I have been suffering with nearly every day has dramatically dissipated I'm not really bothered if it's the magnetics or a placebo effect the fact that it is gone and I have a really nice bracelet too is more than enough for me.
