ACUMED magnetic therapy patches for pain are a natural method of stimulating pain relief. Each patch consists of a hypoallergenic self-adhesive plaster containing high purity zinc and copper in a magnetic field. ACUMED natural magnetic pain relief products are drug-free and can be used to aid the relief of headaches, menstrual pain and muscular aches and pains. To find out more see our FAQ's
How do they work?
ACUMED is based on 'Biomagnetics' which is the use of electromagnetic fields on acupuncture points.
Each patch works as a mini transmitter, emitting small energy fields which have a soothing effect and stimulate the body's natural pain relief mechanism.
ACUMED patches are completely natural. They are applied externally and contain no drugs. Magnetic therapy has been used for centuries and uses zinc and copper - both essential elements in human life.
How do I use them?
ACUMED patches can be placed directly over the area in pain. Alternatively, one or more of the patches can be placed on any of the acupressure points outlined on our body maps. These show the acupuncture points for some of the more common conditions.
Apply one patch to clean, dry skin as appropriate. Press firmly on the adhesive surround. The optimum effect of magnet patch treatment is obtained between the third and fifth day.
How do I peel off and wear the patch?
Hold patch leaf straight in front of you with magnet side facing you.
Tear the perforated, narrow strip on the edge of the leaf to reveal the self-adhesive plaster.
This will enable you to peel off the ENTIRE PLASTER (with magnet, copper and zinc).
Place entire plaster over clean, dry skin. It is very important the skin is dry for the plaster to stick properly.
Apply some pressure over the entire plaster to assure it has stuck well to the skin.
How long do I wear the plaster for?
Leave on continuously for a maximum of 5-7 days.
Can I shower, bathe or swim with it on?
You can bathe, shower, and swim safely while wearing the plaster.
How many plasters can I wear at a time?
More than one plaster can be worn at the same time depending on spread and intensity of pain.
When can I wear another plaster?
Allow skin to breathe before applying a new plaster, and agin, make sure the skin is clean and dry when repeating the process.
Can I share the patch with another person?
NO. DO NOT SHARE or RE-USE THE SAME PATCH.
Where do I apply the patch?
Directly over the area in pain or following the suggested acupuncture points on the Body Maps page.
Do I need to apply a patch to every acupuncture point suggest?
These are only suggestions. Choose the point you believe will help you best.
