Dear Kaggy
It is proposed to work with the small magnetic fields in your cells
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnet_therapy

Pulsed electromagnetic fields—which induce measurable electric fields —have been demonstrated effective for treating slow-healing fractures and have shown promise for a few other conditions. However, few studies have been published on the effect on pain of small, static magnets marketed to consumers . Explanations that magnetic fields "increase circulation," "reduce inflammation," or "speed recovery from injuries" are simplistic and are not supported by the weight of experimental evidence.http://www.quackwatch.org/04ConsumerEducation/QA/magnet.html
