Magnetic Therapy Mattress | Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

When will I feel the benefits of the Magnetico Sleep Pad?

Because every person and their situation is different, it is impossible to predict when you will feel a difference. Some lucky people feel benefits the first night, for others it may take 6 months. The average is about 1-2 months. The important thing to remember is that some benefits, such as increased immunity, increased oxygen saturation, and lowered blood pressure, may be taking place, even though you can’t feel them. However, to ensure our customers are completely satisfied, the Magnetic Sleep Pad comes with the Six-Month Satisfaction Guarantee.

What’s the difference between the Classic, Core, Booster, and Super Sleep System?

The Classic was the original design, and it is not “up-gradable”.

The Core is the first stage of the Super Sleep System. It can be upgraded to a Super Sleep System by adding a Booster Pad.

The Booster is the second stage of the Super Sleep System. Although it can be used without a Core, we recommend starting with the Core as it will be easier to install a Booster afterwards.

The Super Sleep System is a Core with a Booster on top of it. They will arrive as separate pieces, and when installed provide the strongest magnetic field we offer.

Does the Magnetico Sleep Pad have to be the same size as my bed?

If two people use the bed – yes. If only one person has a pad under them, the person sleeping beside them will be exposed to the return possitive magnetic field that comes off the side of the pad. They could be adversely affected by this field if they sleep there over a long period of time.

Can I use single magnets or appliances during the day?

Yes, it is sometimes advisable to place magnets on injured areas of the body; however, do not use them while on the sleep pad as the magnet’s field will conflict with the field produced by the pad. Use of the Sleep Pad will actually enhance the body’s response to daytime use of an applied magnet.

Can a person who has surgically implanted screws, hip replacements or other metal implants, use the Sleep Pad?

Yes, it is a medical requirement that all metal implants are non-magnetic in nature.

Is it possible for me to get too much of a Negative(-) field?

In our research, we have experimented using pure Negative(-) fields a thousand times more powerful than the sleep pad for extended amounts of time. In all cases, we have found only an enhancement of benefits, with no negative side effects.

 

Does the field affect other electrical items in the room; e.g. clock radios, televisions, stereos etc.?

~ Clock radios, alarm clocks and stereos will not be affected.

~ Watches may lose time if worn to bed.

~ LCD or plasma televisions and monitors will not be affected.

~ Conventional (CRT) televisions and monitors – the screen colour may be altered depending on the model of Sleep Pad and distance away from your bed. Be advised that with the Super Sleep System, TVs located in a room directly below your bed area may be affected, especially if they are housed in a tall entertainment unit.

~ Computers – we recommend that you keep your computers two feet away from sides and ends of the Core Model, and three feet away from the Super System. Some customers have used their laptops in bed with no ill effects, but do so at your own risk.

 

Note: Our Sleep Pad’s steady state magnetic field is beneficial in that it buffers you from the effects of the pulsed electromagnetic fields in these and other electrical items, which can fatigue your body cells over time.

Can I use an electric blanket with the magnetic bed?

It is not recommended. The frequency produced by the electric blanket (or heating pad) may interfere with the restoring nightime process of resonance in the body. Many people find they no longer need their electric blanket because their metabolism has increased when sleeping on the Magnetico sleep pad.

Is it okay for my children to be on my bed?

It’s perfectly safe for children, in fact many have their own pads. The field is even gentle enough for premature babies. Many parents have found it greatly helps with children’s sleep patterns and can help calm hyperactivity. Growing pains are often relieved.

How about pets who like to sleep beside or on the bed?

Animals are more sensitive to magnetism than humans. They will probably not stay in the positive field beside your bed for long, since it is not their natural environmental polarity. However, cats in particular may take a liking to sleeping on your bed with a Negative(-) field mattress under them. Our customers report that the pets who sleep with them are benefitting as much as their owners!

Will I experience any side effects?

There are absolutely no harmful side effects. You may experience some temporary detoxification symptoms, however, which is good and indicates that your body is working at a more optimum level. Please read our Detoxification section for more information.

Can a person with an implanted electrical device, such as a pacemaker, pain pump, insulin pump or defibrillator use the Magnetico Sleep Pad?

NO. The strong magnetic field interferes with the function of these devices.

  1. Hello! Is this safe for pregnant women to use as well?

    1. Hello Jane,
      This is an excellent question! Dr. Bonlie provided this helpful answer, and we will be adding this question to our regular FAQ soon.

      The pad is safe to use for the majority of circumstances regarding pregnancy. We do have two recommendations based on the fact that our pads do have the normal benefit of assisting customers with detoxification, particularly when they start using it:
      1. Unless you have been using the pad for 3 months or more already, it isn’t suggested that you first start using the pad during the first trimester.
      2. Using the pad and completing the initial detox period (the above mentioned 3 months is sufficient) can provide a healthier environment for the pregnancy.

      Thanks again for asking!

  2. Hi

    I’ve had my magnetico pad for only 2 weeks.
    I’m thinking of getting the chilipad as well as my partner would like to have the option to control the temperature on our bed. I understand that there is no wires (only tubes with water) on the bed, unlike an electric blanket.
    However the motor part is stored under the bed and I wonder if that’s is ok with the magnetico . Can you please advise?
    Many thanks

    1. Hello Maria,

      By the looks of the product I would say you don’t have much to worry about. We do tell customers that if they choose to use any electronic device near one of our pads, that they do so at their own risk. But unless the device uses magnetic memory (think VHS and floppy disks) most modern electronics are rather sturdy when it comes to tolerating a magnetic field. Digital devices that are intended to be very precise or are particularly sensitive could be more vulnerable to this type of interference, but a simple motor with basic controls likely doesn’t have a lot of components which are fragile or at risk.

      Try asking the manufacturer for their thoughts as well, they could be an excellent resource!

  3. Will these products work with memory foam mattresses?

    1. Hi Bill,

      Yes! Our Sleep Pads work with all types of mattresses including memory foam, latex, gel, traditional metal spring, and even air mattresses!

      The only requirement is that the mattress you sleep on be a minimum of 4 inches thick, so as to avoid being in the positive (+) magnetic field spikes that occur on the surface of the Sleep Pad. Otherwise almost any material is fine, as magnetic fields aren’t easily affected by most materials.

  4. If I understand correctly, the magnetico magnets are place between the mattress and the box spring. Will the metal rods in the mattress interfere with the magnetic field?

    Also, my desk is beside my bed. I often sit at my desk and work on my computer. This sounds like I may be at jeopardy of being exposed to positive fields, correct?

    Lastly, I have a small upstairs, downstairs condo. My living room is directly below my bedroom, and the corner that my bed is in is directly above my television in my living room. The television is not incased in a cabinet. It’s a plasma Sony Bravia that’s about 10 years old. Should I be concerned about this?

    1. Hello Tonia,

      Our Sleep Pad is placed directly underneath the mattress, but above anything else (such as a box spring). The minimum distance from the pad you need is 4 inches of mattress, but a thickness of 16 or more inches will begin to reduce the strength of the pad quite a bit.

      The return positive (+) field reaches out about 4 feet around all edges of the bed. Occasional exposure to this field is no cause for concern, but regular long-term exposure (for example working from home at the desk, or watching shows all evening) will constantly be draining your vitality.

      Regrettably because it’s impossible to test all electronics I am unable to verify if your TV will be unaffected. We must warn that any electronic device you use within the magnetic field has the chance to be temporarily or permanently damaged. Many customers have reported to us that they use their phones, laptops, tablets, and TV’s on and near the bed with no issues whatsoever; modern electronics do tend to be designed to withstand outside interference. Older devices unfortunately (such as floppy discs or tapes, CRT monitors, and tube TV’s) are very vulnerable to magnetic fields though, and all precautions should be made avoid having them near the pads.

  5. Hello, what about using the Sleep Pad in conjunction with Earthing sheets/pads that are connected to a grounding rod?

    1. Using a earthing sheet/grounding pad may interfere with the proper function of the Sleep Pad, and we suggest you do not use them together.

  6. Is there an “orientation” for the sleep pad? Should one side face “up” and the other down. Or does it not make a difference?

    1. Hello Richard,

      It is important to ensure that our Sleep Pads are facing the correct way when placed under the bed; for this reason we clearly label our Sleep Pads with stickers that inform you which way to place them. If placed incorrectly, the direction of the magnetic field would be going the opposite way that the Earth’s magnetic field flows, and this would make it difficult to sleep and generally provide a poor experience!

      If you want a little more detail on why, check out our page on “The Science Behind Magnetico’s Success” and some of our other info pages.

  7. Will this magnetico pad work if it is not plugged into the grid? If I have the dirty electricity filters will this be ok and in will it keep me from receiving the grid in my bed if I have wires in my mattress as of today?

    1. Hello Bonne,

      Our product only uses strong permanent magnets to create the magnetic field; this means it does need any electricity for the life of the product, and it does not need to be plugged in!

      If you have any other products that you use on your bed that could potentially interfere with magnetic fields or EMF’s, we insist that you do not use them with our product. They could potentially damage each other, or interfere with their effectiveness and prevent you from recieving any of the benefits our pad offers.

      Dr. Bonlie says you don’t need any other product to protect you from foreign frequencies created by electronic devices, as our Sleep Pad does so naturally using a strong magnetic field. It deflects them while you sleep, and will even help your body be protected from those frequencies even during the day the longer you use it.

  8. Can I use my smart phone while in bed? How far from bed should the phone be during night?

    1. Hi Rosa,
      If you choose to use electronics on or near your bed, you do so at your own risk. We cannot guarantee that the strong magnetic field won’t cause temporary or permanent damage to your devices.
      We hear from many of our customers that they use their laptops and smartphones in bed with no issue. Most modern electronics are designed to mitigate this risk (many older electronics are easily damaged by magnets) but the best rule of thumb is this; if you aren’t comfortable with the idea of needing to replace your device (or if you wouldn’t be able to recover the information from that device) keep it away from the bed by at least 4 feet.
      Hope this helps!

  9. Is it necessary to use a kill switch with the magnetico sleep pad?

    1. Hi Matty,
      Our Sleep Pad only uses ceramic magnets; there’s no electricity required and no plug. You would need to remove it from your bed if you no longer wanted to use it.

  10. Is there a switch to power it off when not being used?

    1. Hi Sean,
      Our Sleep Pads only use ceramic magnets (imagine the kind that stick to your fridge). This means you do not plug it in and there is no electricity involved. Of course our magnets are much stronger than fridge magnets, and our product is designed to be used every night while you sleep; there’s no need to turn it off!

  11. after having adjusted well to sleeping with the Magnetico pad, what happens when you travel? will sleep be disrupted?

    1. Once you’ve used the Sleep Pad for a while, you will likely find that if you take a day or two trip that you don’t see much impact. But anything longer it’s expected you may notice the difference in your quality of sleep and will likely be looking forward to getting back home to your bed for some good rest!

  12. It says the classic sleep pad is not upgradeable. does that mean it will not work in conjunction with the core or booster should we be able to afford that later? Also, where can I find information specifically showing the affects that a 10 to 20 gauss and healing affects of only 5 gauss.
    Thanks
    Christina

    1. Hi Christina,

      The Classic model was Dr. Bonlie’s original design. While you could technically add it to a Core Pad or Booster Pad if you were so inclined, the magnets do not line up properly and this prevents it from being cost effective in terms of improving the strength. For example if you add a Classic to a Core, it’s expected to only reach about 12 gauss (on an 8 inch mattress).

      This “Help Me Choose” page best covers what you would want to get any of the different models for. We created it with Dr. Bonlie as a guideline for individuals, as our customers regularly purchase our pads for different reasons. If you need some more information than what that provides, I’d highly recommend calling in to speak with Dr. Bonlie and he can help you decide as well.
