Balance band the power band bracelet and pendants are everywhere, I have read all the hype by the big name sports personalities and seen many of them being worn by celebrities on TV. Like anyone who has witnessed this phenomenon I am curious as to if and how a balance band works. Christmas is just around the corner I am sure that many people are considering giving a power band bracelet as a gift, so do they work or are they this year’s snake oil?
While I am not prepared to spend a lot of time doing scientific research for a product such as this (and if the claims are true I should not have to, the band should just work, case closed) to find out the benefits for Triathletes, I was recently bought one by a relative who wanted a second opinion after purchasing one himself. He said he was feeling something and wanted to make sure it worked and that he was not imagining the effects, he was very excited and animated so I accepted the gift and gave it a try.
