You’ve seen them; unassuming pieces of metal jewelry with signature terminal ends that resemble two large ball bearings. Made popular by golfers, ionic bracelets have made headlines in more ways than one. But do work and are they really, as the 2001 “false advertising” lawsuit claims, just hype?

Not according to this dedicated customer. I wasn’t sure about buying an ionic bracelet. I’d started having trouble with my left wrist over ten years ago and I was diagnosed with the beginnings of carpel tunnel syndrome. I was forced to wear a metal brace, which made typing and other everyday tasks awkward. On a whim, I decided to try a magnetic bracelet. It seemed to help and I wore it for several years but still experienced wrist pain. So, when it tarnished to the point of being unattractive, I never replaced it.

Fast forward to 2003. I got into a fender bender where I was hit from behind and developed a herniated disk in my neck. I was told I’d need surgery but I elected to try physical therapy first. I thought about getting back into magnetic therapy and that’s when I found the ionic bracelet. It was costly and, at first, I was skeptical about its claims. Still, natural therapies had been working for me so far so I decided to give it a try.

I was so pleased! Not only did the pain in my neck improve but I had more energy, less anxiety and other aches and pains I’ve had as a result of my digestive/autoimmune problems disappeared. I never expected that. I’ve had the same ionic bracelet now for over six years and I never take it off unless I get into salt water (you shouldn’t wear ionic bracelets in salt).

So how do ionic bracelets work? Basically, our bodies are filled with a life force energy commonly known as, “chi”. This energy is designed to flow freely and naturally throughout the body. Unfortunately, stress, electromagnetic chaos (think microwaves and cell phones), poor diet, sedentary lifestyle and environmental pollution cause blockages in the natural flow of our life energy. Ionic bracelets help to unblock and balance that energy in the same fashion as acupuncture.

When my closest friend developed carpel tunnel syndrome a year ago, she asked me if I really thought an ionic bracelet would help her I told her I thought it would. She invested in one of her own and within a week, her pain was gone!

She went on to recommend the bracelet to her mother-in-law who suffers from fibromyalgia and her mother-in-law experienced such a decline in pain and an increase in energy, she was able to tackle house projects she hadn’t been able to in years!

So do ionic bracelets work? Yes! It is my sincere belief that they are an investment in ones health and well-being.

Which ionic bracelet do I use? Q Ray. I can’t vouch for any other ionic bracelets but I can say my Q Ray works.

Go to the websites, read the testimonials and talk to real people who wear ionic bracelets then make the decision if one is right for you. You’ll be glad you did.


If you have a pacemaker, consult your healthcare practitioner before wearing any ionic jewelry. Remove your ionic bracelet before entering salt water.
