When should I use the Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad?
The Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad can be used for a variety of reasons, improving performance and helping to alleviate soreness or health issues. It's ideal to use for:
- Horses on box rest to improve blood flow and circulation
- Before exercise to warm up the back muscles prior to being ridden
- After exercise to help with the removal of built-up toxins
- On your horse's day off as part of a maintenance program
- At a show to help the horse recover from travelling
- To help alleviate back problems, including stiffness and discomfort
- To encourage relaxation
How does the Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad work?
The Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad has three different settings - high, medium and low - which can be easily selected from the attached controller. This allows you to select the intensity of the program to best suit your horse. Each program has three types of massage to ensure all muscles are worked in different ways: pulsing, vibration and stroking. The sessions will last for 30 minutes but can be stopped manually at any time.
The medium setting is ideal for warming up your horse's back muscles prior to work; the low setting can then be used to cool down your horse and aid recovery afterwards. The high setting helps to alleviate back problems when your horse requires a more intense massage.
The Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad is the choice of many top riders, including Olympians and World Champions.
What are the benefits of massage?
We know ourselves that massage can make us feel relaxed and help to ease tension. Massage therapy in horses has been shown to help reduce tension too. Tension is one of the most common reasons for poor performance and can cause soreness and stiffness. By increasing relaxation and improving back flexibility, the negative effects of tension can be reduced. Relaxation is essential for improving flexibility and movement, especially for competition and performance horses performing complex dressage movements or jumping technical fences. Clinical trials of this massage pad also concluded that other significant benefits can be seen in various horses, including an increase in stride length and the treatment of chronic back pain and sensitivity.
Test methods can be seen on the Equilibrium Products website.
