I discovered the benefits of magnetic therapy over fifteen years ago. It all started with some minor aches and pains. I was studying to be a massage therapist and during one class we were practicing a move called the sacrum press. We have done this move a few times before but on this day I felt something shift in my sacrum (the large triangular bone that your tail bone connects with). From that point forward my low back never felt the same. I tried different chiropractors but all they want to do is crack my neck. Honestly I just don’t like the sound of cracking bones so close to my ears.
Now with an achy back and a cracking neck, I was truly a mess. Until one day I found Dr. David. I was working as a massage therapist in a shared office space at a local hospital with Dr. David. It was a slow day so Dr. David and I started chatting and I told him of my lower back pains. He said “oh that’s easy to fix, get on the table”, I laid on his table faced down, he pressed gently on the left and right side of my sacrum with what looks like a giant syringe with a rubber tip. I was cured. No pain for one whole year until…
One afternoon I was walking down Canal Street in Chinatown, there was a Chinese man peddling some small magnets on the sidewalk. I remember my Shiatsu teacher mentioned magnets and their abilities to heal. The magnets were small no bigger than an eraser on a pencil. I bought two magnets. I taped the magnets on my lower back on the same points Dr. David had delivered his adjustments. That evening I forgot about my ache, it was still kind of there but really dull and it didn’t bother me as much. I was able to climb into bed and not feel that familiar twinge of pain. A day after that it went away completely. I left the magnets on and changed the bandage when I needed to, but the magnets were small so I inevitably lost them. I went back to where the man sold it and he was no longer there.
I was finally able to locate something similar at the local CVS drugstore called magnadots. They weren’t as good as the ones from Chinatown but I was so happy I found them.
For years I have been searching for a stylish, simple and sexy piece of magnetic jewelry. I didn’t find any so I decided to design my own.
I’d love to hear from you, so please leave a comment below now.
Thanks for reading!
