Bipolar Magnets vs. Unipolar Magnets

Some experts believe that bipolar magnets are more effective, while others believe that unipolar magnets are the way to go. Polarity is one of the most controversial issues within the field of Magnet Therapy. Regardless of the polarity issue, experts agree that magnets work.

There are some people who believe that only the north side of a biomagnet (healing magnet) offers healing benefits. Learn more about the magnetic north pole south pole controversy.

Bipolar Magnets



All magnets are bipolar, meaning they have a north pole and a south pole. A true unipolar magnet does not exist. However, in the field of magnetic therapy, unipolar refers to a biomagnet that is used in such a way that only one pole – either north or south (but not both) – faces the body, while the opposite pole faces away from the body.


Manufacturers of magnetic stainless steel jewelry and magnetic titanium jewelry arrange small neodymium magnets in the back of magnetic therapy jewelry so that only one pole, typically the north pole, faces the body. In this application the neodymium magnets are said to be unipolar.

Some experts feel that unipolar magnets have a greater depth of penetration. I feel that it has more to do with the magnet strength. Neodymium magnets are the strongest permanent biomagnets available. Whether a neodymium is used as a bipolar or unipolar magnet, it offers the greatest depth of penetration, due to its strength.

Benefits of Bipolar Magnets

The term bipolar refers to a biomagnet that allows both poles – north and south – to face the body at the same time. Many Eastern European studies were performed by researchers that showed positive results using magnets that were bipolar and placed in a checkerboard pattern.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) recognizes the benefits of both magnetic poles and how they correlate to Yin Yang energies.

Neodymium magnets are very strong permanent magnets that can be used to create bipolar neodymium jewelry. Neodymiums are so strong, they are held together by their own magnetism, no beading wire or setting is required.

Magnetite is a crystal that carries both a positive and negative magnetic charge. Magnetite jewelry can be worn to expose the body to both the north and south magnetic poles at the same time.

Regardless, of the type of magnetic field deficiency the body may have, by giving the body access to both poles, the body is intelligent enough and can then take whatever it requires to balance and heal. 

I have personally benefited by wearing both bipolar and unipolar magnetic jewelry. Magnet therapy is a holistic remedy that can assist your body and its biomagnetism to balance and to achieve holistic health.
