The magnets sold as healing magnets are made from the same materials as all other magnets are made from.
Examples of the magnets and their use include the following.
a) FLEXIBLE MAGNETIC RUBBER
Flexible magnetic rubber magnets are commonly formed in sheets or strips and used for magnetic therapy in shoe insoles..
b) CERAMIC MAGNETS
Ceramic magnets are most commonly used in body wraps, pads and cushions.
c) NEODYMIUM MAGNETS
Most commonly used in magnetic jewelry, bracelets, and individually on pain trigger or acupuncture points.
d) SAMARIUM COBALT MAGNETS
Most commonly used magnets in high quality jewelry where rusting is to be avoided. A very expensive magnet, very brittle, therefore labor intensive.
e) HEMATITE MAGNETS
Beaded magnetic hematite is very commonly used as bead magnets in high quality jewelry where bead strands are used to create beaded hematite bracelets, beaded hematite necklaces, or beaded hematite belts. With hematite the jewelry is the magnet rather than a magnetic insert into the jewelry.
