No controlled double blinded study has ever shown that magnetic therapy has any significant influence on pain beyond placebo. In fact, lots of credible studies show just the opposite. If they showed otherwise you wouldn't be selling your magnetic therapy products at a market, you'd be selling them to hospitals and making millions. No, actually, if magnetic therapy worked, it would have been a staple in health care and recovery ages before you were even born.
Magnet therapy is pseudoscience, and you are a charlatan. At best you are tricking people with false claims and scientific sounding gibberish into wasting their money on junk. At worst you are selling a bullshit therapy to people who might actually need real medicine, medicine they might not seek out after having bought a "magic bracelet" instead.
