MEND.HORSE uplevels equine athletes with sessions that directly meet their needs.
Therapy, Rehab, Physio
Bodywork * PEMF * LASER
We listen with our hands, collaborate with the horse, and follow vet guidelines to create a highly individualized, synergistic experience. This holistic session triggers the physiological responses most needed by your athlete.
Comfortable movement is crucial for healthy muscular development & refined athleticism. Properly administered modalities
assist in preventing injury and expediting recovery. Sessions vary in length, depending on the horse. This is not a production line, cookie-cutter service. Bookings are limited so that adequate time can be provided for all sessions.
Some of the methods utilized are outlined here:
is essential to gauge areas of lack and monitor feedback from the body.
Various manual techniques aim to: tone or sedate acupoints; increase
range of motion; stretch fascia; release spasms; release nerve
compression; improve blood flow, etc.
PEMF (pulsing / magnawave) helps to increase electrolytes and balance ions in the cell wall. This enhances the cellular metabolism in stiff and depleted muscles, tendons and joints.
Photobiomodulation (LASER / red light) boosts mitochondrial membrane potential and accelerates ATP production. ATP is the fuel needed for muscle contraction. It also stimulates angiogenesis (development of new blood vessels).
