Hi all,

I just wanted to comment on what I have learned about magnetic therapy. I have been out for the holidays so I know this may be a little late. From what I have read - the magnets do not help with abdominal pain but work wonderfully with muscle/joint/soft tissue pain. The key is positioning. They must be in the right spot to be effective. Finding the right spot is what makes the difference in it working or not.

hope this helps
