Frequently asked Questions
All necklaces can be worn during the day, night or even around the clock. Since each person reacts individually, you need to gather your own experience. There are customers who observe an activating effect and therefore wear the necklaces and bracelets during the day, others swear by night application, as they regenerate better. There are also many enthusiastic Phiten wearers who wear the necklaces only for special activities. This is also possible because the beneficial effect on the body starts immediately.
If a feeling of discomfort occurs while wearing it, it is recommended to put the necklace away that day and not wear it again until the next day. It may be that some people have to get used to the effect at first, or that some may experience initial discomfort. However, the experience of the last 20 years has shown that such reactions subside on the second or third day, and then a permanent relaxation sets in. In case of weather sensitivity, wearing the necklace may occasionally cause a feeling of pressure in the head. On such days it should be used only for a short time. By the way, the necklaces can also be worn on the arm or ankle.
All fabric necklaces (Standard, Air, Racing) can be shortened to the desired length by yourself. The ends must then be sewn back together according to the original condition.
These necklaces and bracelets can be worn permanently in water and simply rinsed off. They are therefore well suited for athletes who sweat a lot.
On the other hand, we do not recommend wearing the standard necklaces and standard bracelets permanently in water or for showering. When fastening the bracelet, care must be taken to keep it as dry as possible, because the glue is not waterproof.
For reasons of hygiene, and because the skin underneath breathes a little less well, it is recommended to wear the patches no longer than two to three days. However, their power lasts beyond that. The patches can also be worn while showering or bathing. Skin irritation is extremely rare. Nevertheless, when you use them for the first time, we recommend that you watch out for any undesirable reactions and, if necessary, remove the patches earlier.
All textiles can be hand washed up to a temperature of 40 degrees without washing out the titanium particles. However, they should not be dried in a tumble dryer.
All textiles can also be worn for sleeping. Most customers feel a deeper sleep and better rest in the process.
Air necklace has the advantage that it has no clasp and it is quite light – so it is very suitable for runners. It is sewn together under the rubber. To protect this part, it is recommended to squeeze this part each time you put it on and take it off, so that the sewn part is not overstressed.
