A statement was released  by The World Health Organization that there aren’t any health risks when static magnetic fields are used in magnetic therapy.    Magnetic therapy when used properly has never been reported to cause health problems.

Some people who use magnetic therapy to treat knee pain experience a warming sensation.  Their skin may sweat or tingle when they first begin using a magnetic knee brace. This is a normal reaction and is due to increased circulation.  Do not use magnets if you have a pacemaker or if you are pregnant.
