This was amazing, I used to wake up every morning with a very achy back. Now it doesn't hurt at all when I wake up. The only thing I don't like about it is it suppose to be a body mat and it only covers me from my shoulders to my butt when I lay on it. I am 5'7"-but all in all it was a great purchase from me. I was skeptical that magnets can actually work to heal pains-but I'm telling you it works! I love you Overstock-you are the best.
I've used several very expensive magnetic therapy blankets and had been led to believe that it had to be expensive to work. I really wanted one for my preschool son, but I did not want to put out the expense for one like I had previously used. When I got this one in, I put it on my bed to test it. Now I'm having to buy another one for him. Not only are my back issues greatly decreased, but I can guarantee that I will have a deep sound sleep, which for an insomniac is an amazing difference. I came back online tonight to see if I can find a bigger one for me, or else to get some more for all of my family.
With husband's back complaints while he was out of town I snuck this under the sheets on his side of the bed. Until he returned I noticed I would fall asleep with my arthritic hands and a foot dangled over it! Made me feel better, even it in my head! LIked it so much I bought the smaller health pad, put a cotton quilted pillowcase over it and use in my wingback recliner. Sometimes on my back, sometimes I just sit on it!
A friend called me about a book call "Natural Cures." She knew my mother has been suffering with severe muscle pain for the last six month. She read in this book that one cure for fibromyalgia is a magnetic pad. So I bought this one to try it out. It has provided my mother with significant relief and improvement from her pain. I have been telling lots of people to look into it. One of my friends is going to purchase one for her MS.
I had neck and back surgeries in 2009 and it didn't work for my back; neck ok, acts up sometimes.These Magnetic therapeutic pad actually works a lot. I am not saying it cures me completely but it helps a whole lot, cause I can't take the drugs they give to people, just hurts me worse! So this is a blessing for me!!! So before you get surgery try this first!!!
I was concerned when it did not state how many magnets were contained in this product. The answer is 10 small nickel size magnets. The outside Quilting was already coming apart. I used this product for 3 nights. The pad I had made worked so much better. I have returned this product. I will say this is the first time I have not been happy with a product from Overstock.
I bought this for my dog who has bad hips. It came quickly but 2 magnets inside were loose. And one magnet was missing completely. I called the manufacturer, they finally returned my call after I left several messages. The woman who called me back was very pleasant and informed me that the guy who I was directed to no longer works for the company, and she couldn't help me I had to return it to Overstock. If the magnets were secure and included then I would say it was a good value, but they were not and really that is why I purchased it.
This product did not work for me. I did not notice any improvement over my back and leg arthritis pain after sleeping on this pad for a week. It is a nice warm pad that offers extra cushion but it for the price, there are better larger pads that do the same. I don't know if other magnetic mattress pads work better but this one did nothing for me and I do not recommend it.
