"Drug free therapy for pain free horses!"
Equine Electro-Stimulation/Electro-Acupressure(also known as E-Stim) is the stimulation of acupoints, muscles, tendons or ligaments to provide relief of muscle spasm, increase circulation and relieve acute or chronic pain due to injury.
E-Stim is a very versatile therapy-it is not just for the relief of pain and spasm but can also function as a strengthening exercise for weak/atrophied muscles. At higher E-Stim voltages, deeper nerves are activated and muscle contraction occurs. This works the weak muscles, keeping them healthy and increases the circulation of blood and lymph which helps repair injured tissue and remove toxins.
For the equine athlete, muscle spasm or weakness decreases overall performance and effects the horse's attitude towards work. E-Stim blocks the transmission of pain signals, releases endorphins, and alleviates trigger points. Acupressure points are stimulated and relaxation occurs. Most horses love this therapy and fall asleep during treatment!
