The Equilibrium Therapy Horse Massage Mitt is designed to offer effective, affordable and easy to use massage therapy for all horses and ponies. Portable, battery operated horse massage.
The Massage Mitt has three different settings – high, medium and low – which can be selected easily from the mitt itself. This enables you to select the intensity of the program to suit your horse. Each program has three different types of massage – pulsing, vibration and stroking –to ensure all muscles are worked in different ways. Each session will last for 10 minutes ensuring you have enough time for full coverage over the horses muscle groups.
The Massage Mitt can be easily incorporated into your warming up and cooling down routine. The medium setting can be used to help warm muscles up prior to exercise. The low setting can then be used to cool down the muscles. It comes in a handy carry bag which makes it ideal for use at home, away or in the lorry it is easy to store in the tack room and is wipe clean. The bag also has useful storage spots for the battery and charger.
The massage mitt is the choice of many Olympians, World Champions, top producers, up and coming stars and amateurs. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with the massage pad and magnetic back pad and chaps.
Massage helps improve flexibility and reduce stiffness by improving blood supply to the muscles, this was found in our Massage Pad clinical trials which had massage applied to their backs via the pad and horses that used the pad showed a significant improvement in back flexibility. The heart rate is also reduced throughout the massage which promotes relaxation.
Tension is often one of the most common reasons for poor performance and by increasing relaxation and improving back flexibility; the negative effects of tension can be reduced. Relaxed muscles can help assist flexibility and movement in particular for competition horses performing dressage movements and jumping technical fences.
