It’s a tiny gold magnet, which attaches to your skin with a clear, hypo-allergenic,breathable plaster. It was created by Oncology Acupuncturist Jo Darling, for her cancer patients. Through her work, helping them to manage the side effects of their cancer treatment, she noticed they experienced immediate and intense menopause symptoms. Sometimes their menopause symptoms, most often hot flushes, were too intense for them to get to her clinic so she set about finding a proxy for her acupuncture needles and began to use magnets instead.

She gained positive practice-based evidence which led her to conduct a study where she found around 80%of users reported feeling a benefit, with their flushes reducing or stopping altogether.
