How can magnetic therapy help your horse?
The use of magnets to relieve pain has been practised for over 2000 years.
Now, with the benefits of modern materials and technology, magnets can be made very small, unobtrusive and powerful – ideal for animal therapy.
Studies have shown that this natural, non-invasive therapy relieves pain and helps promote the body’s natural healing process by improving blood flow, and therefore oxygen, to injured areas. Magnetic therapy is a complementary way to enhance the relief of pain.
The magnets themselves do not heal – they create an environment in the body that helps speed up the natural healing process by removing inflammation and restoring circulation. It is believed this is achieved when the blood stream and nerves are stimulated as the blood passes through the magnetic field.
Here at Equine Rebalance Therapy Centre we use a magnetic rug as well as the Activomed massage and pulsed electromagnetic therapy rug which is available for horses to use. This has various preset and individual programmes which can be used on the horse.
