Tibetan Medicine Bracelets are a traditional three-metal bracelet made by shamanic healers in Tibet and Nepal. They are worn to prevent and alleviate diseases such as arthritis, for protection from demonic attack, and to enhance health and strength.

Shamanic bracelets such as these have been used for countless generations by people who sincerely attest that wearing them will reduce symptoms of arthritis, neuritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and repetitive motion injuries. The Tibetans wear them to increase energy, general well-being, and longevity.

The Tibetan Medicine Bracelets shown here are hand-made in the USA by Tom Kelly, a famous and colourful Northern California character who actually learned the technique of making them in Nepal from Tibetan refugees during the 1960s.

These bracelets are not coated with plastic or lacquer. They are meant to be worn next to the skin. The natural salts in perspiration interact with the copper in the bracelet and are absorbed into the body.

Traditional people say that the absorption of these minute traces of copper aids the entire body by strengthening Ch'i, also known as life-force or bio-energy flow. From a Chinese acupuncturist's point of view, these bracelets amplify our natural bio-electrical network along certain meridians. The clockwise and counterclockwise twisting of the various metals, each vibrating at a different molecular frequency, sets off a flow of galvanic exchange. Negative (yin) and positive (yang) polarities are set up at either end of the bracelet. A bio-magnetic field is established across the bracelet gap, which spans the inside of the wrist, the point where the meridians and arteries come close to the skin's surface. This flow is believed to recharge the body's natural cellular batteries.

Modern alternative healers tell us that they believe that these bracelets help the body because the copper that they contain enters the blood stream and there bonds with free radicals and passes them out through the kidneys. They say that without this bonding process, the free radicals remain in the body and degrade the fluid located between the joints, which leads to arthritic irritation.

A third group of beliefs associated with these bracelets is that they function as barometers of health and well-being: In a polluted environment or when exposed to toxins such as alcohol, cigarette smoke, or the sweat of a person who is under physical or emotional stress, the bracelets darken as they remove impurities from the body. Thus, if one's bracelet turns very dark, despite repeated buffing with a cloth, it is said to be "taking the hit" for one.

Styles and patterns of twisting the three metals vary, but all are traditional patterns. Due to fluctuations in the price of metals (especially silver), we sell by weight rather than by style; children should wear the smaller sizes and large, thick-wristed men will prefer the larger sizes.

All bracelets contain the three metals -- copper, brass, and silver -- and are made in torc style, with brass end-caps so they can be adjusted to fit your wrist. Tom Kelly's Tibetan style medicine bracelets are worn by many Hollywood celebrities and also by ordinary people who use them to find relief from aches and pains.

Copper bracelets are not a substitute for professional medical advice or treatment, but their use is so widely endorsed by the public that we do not hesitate to mention that these Tibetan Medicine Bracelets, also known as Shamanic Healing Bracelets, are made with real copper, brass, and silver wires which are twisted in traditional Tibetan patterns said to bring health, protection, and strength to the wearer.

The best maintenance, in addition to being worn, is an occasional buffing with wool or a jeweler's rouge cloth. This will maintain a beautiful patina on the bracelet.
