Benefits Of Equine Massage

  • Promotes healing by increasing the flow of nutrients to the muscles and carrying away excessive fluids and toxins. 
  • Reduces inflammation and swelling in joints, thereby alleviating pain, by improving circulation. 
  • Creates a positive effect on the contractual and release process of the muscles. When tension is released, muscle relax. 
  • Assists in balancing the body by treating the body as a whole rather than each individual part. 
  • Stimulates circulation by “defrosting frozen muscles” thereby releasing endorphins- natural pain killers. Improved circulation also increases the excretion of toxins through the skin.

PEMF:

Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy sessions for people, horses, dogs,
cattle, & pigs.

What is PEMF? 
PEMF energizes the cells of the body stimulating the body’s natural healing. It is painless, non- invasive drugfree therapy that accelerates healing, pain relief, & reduces inflammation, along with many other life changing benefits.  
What happens during a PEMF treatment? 
Pemf device sends pulsing magnetic field pulses through a flexible, soft rubber coil that penetrates into the body. The cell membrane is gently pulled by the magnetic field as it pulses. The cell membrane is relaxed on the (off phase). The cell membrane becomes more permeable as the cells relax and expand. This allows the cells to release toxins, inflammation, & waste. The release of toxin and receiving oxygen increases the natural charge of the cell. The magnetic wave only affects the cells that have a low level of charge. The damaged cells are the ones that show pulsing or twitching. 
How long do sessions last? 
Treatment sessions usually take 20-60 minutes for humans & small animals and 30-45 minutes for horses. It really depends on how chronic the soreness or injury is though some sessions vary on time of treatment. 

PEMF increases: 

  • Range of motion 
  • Immune system 
  • Flexibility 
  • endurance  
  • Energy 
  • Strength 
  • Circulation 
  • Stamina 

PEMF decreases:
