materials such as Energy-Pak when placed on the skin produce
several measurable biological effects:
- Induction voltages in the tissues under the influence
of the field
- Motion in magnetically-charged body chemicals
- Electromagnetic forces vertical to the ions in the blood
flowing in capillaries under the foil
- Local increase in blood circulation
body cells and tissues contain ferromagnetic substances which
can be influenced temporarily by externally applied static
magnetic fields. Red blood cells (because they contain the
iron-containing pigment haemoglobin) have magnetic properties.
Plasma contains substances such as sodium and potassium which
have paramagnetic properties while others such as copper have
Research is still continuing in this field of medicine, but
there is evidence from satisfied customers that the foil has
very definite effects on the human body.
Energy-Pak Alternate-Magnetic Foil is a unique way of applying
magnetic force to the skin and the tissues just beneath. It
is made up of a series of magnets lying in a particular pattern
scientifically determined to produce effects which are demonstrably
superior to those produced by putting an ordinary magnet on
It has been known for some years that magnetic fields have
biological effects on living tissues and organisms and undoubtedly
north and south poles have different actions. Unfortunately,
despite some claims made to the contrary, medical research
is still at the stage of being unable to predict which pole
is ideal for any particular condition in real life (as opposed
to in laboratory experiments) so it is still not possible
to be sure that putting a given pole over a specific condition
will produce desired results. For this reason Energy-Pak Alternate-Magnetic
Foil has been designed with a field pattern that has been
shown to stimulate blood vessels in all layers of the skin
and in some of the most superficial tissues immediately underneath.
clinical trials using single pole magnets (either a north
or a south pole) were not as successful as the researchers
had hoped so they experimented with alternate north and south
fields placed alongside each other as in the diagram. This
layout of the magnetic fields has the advantage of retaining
the magnetic field strength for longer than magnetic foil
with one pole only thus giving the product a longer life,
and it also restricts the penetration of the magnetic field
to the skin and the tissues just beneath. This latter seems
to be important at a time when we do not know of the effect
of magnetic fields on deep tissues of the body.
Although Energy-Pak has a local effect on the tissues immediately
beneath it there is little doubt that it also produces distant
effects by stimulating acupuncture points. Indeed, the earliest
trials used Energy-Pak on acupuncture points to produce the
same effect as those produced by using needles - but painlessly.
||Sports Pro pack
One side of the foil is covered with a thin layer of aluminium
and gold. This not only strengthens the foil but reflects
body heat and causes local warming of the skin under the foil.
Sensitive heat measurements using the latest thermographic
technology show that the foil causes a definite rise in skin
temperature in the area to which it is applied.
The magnetic force has been proven to penetrate the skin
to a depth of 7mm. (about one-third of an inch).
New uses for the foil are being found all the time as a result
of research programmes all over Europe, but it is currently
being used to help the following problems:
- Joint aches and pains
- Minor sports injuries
- Sprains and strains
- Muscular tension
- Lumpy scars
Most of these conditions are relieved, at least to some extent,
within hours and certainly within days of applying the foil,
but lumpy scars may take months to become smoother. Where
a condition is painful, there is often a substantial reduction
in pain within hours.
