Groundbreaking Therapy For Horses

The Equitonic 9 is a hand-held, rechargeable, battery-operated device applied for equine health and therapy. The Equitonic 9 uses alpha-range sound waves to simultaneously relax the body, reduce rebellious cells, and stimulate the production of HA. The device emits sound waves below the range of human hearing in an unpredictable pattern. This irregular pattern is key to the efficiency of the healing sound vibrations because the body cannot adapt to it. The formal name for working with this unpredictable sound wave pattern is stochastic resonance therapy. Introducing stochastic resonance signals into the body awakens cellular and genetic structures, increasing the energy in the system and reorganizing it into a higher, simpler state where healing is possible and likely. The Equitonic 9 device has three settings: restful, acute for pain, and pre-race. Each offers inflamed or traumatized cells a different horse care healing strategy. Users feel a subtle vibration, sometimes described as a gentle pulse. The Equitonic can be placed directly on the body, or it can be used in the body’s bio/magnetic energy field up to 10 feet away from the body.

Horse Therapy With Dianne Volz

The Equitonic 9 is always in my bag, (as well as beside my bed!). From placing it on the sternum (at the girth) for either pain relief or to ground the horse, to stimulating acupuncture points to relax the whole hind quarters… stimulating the stomach alarm point to increase gut motility, [to] hanging an Equitonic 9 in a horse’s stall to calm and help settle them, or to help them deal with transition… so many safe and wonderful uses!

Equine Sciences Are Fostering Groundbreaking Therapy For Horses

In 2001, inventor Richard Lee collaborated with veterinarian Ronald J. Riegel in a series of scientifically controlled studies focused on understanding and quantifying the horse therapy healing effects of the Equitonic device. Researchers studied the effects of one 20-minute Equitonic horse care session on the inflamed hocks of groups of 10 genetically-similar, Standardbred racehorses (all eating the same diet and participating in the same daily workout schedule). Infrared thermographics revealed that hocks treated with the Equitonic dropped 3 degrees Celsius or more after just one session and stayed down for hours. Repeated sessions of Equitonic therapy for horses over many weeks showed a progressively more effective reduction in inflammation. These results indicate that Equitonic therapy is cumulative, with two or more treatments providing substantially deeper and longer-lasting relief than a single treatment. In a second more rigorous field trial, blood analysis of all 10 horses in the treated group revealed that Equitonic therapy brought about a significant drop in levels of both Aspartate Amino Transferase (AST) and Creatine Phosphokinase (CPK), both prime indicators of muscle tissue inflammation. Additionally, the treated working horses showed significant improvement in the rate of recovery after races, attitude, and performance. The horses shaved 1.65 seconds off their time over six weeks, enough to make the difference between first and last place in many close races.

Train A Horse Purposefully And Avoid Lame Horses

Then, the researchers expanded their study into Hyaluronic Acid, a key ingredient in muscle and joint health that veterinarians injected into dry hocks of horses for many years to reduce inflammation and promote healing. Together, Lee and Riegel developed a protocol to measure HA concentration in the horses’ hocks after Equitonic therapy for horses. Five weeks later, they had the results. Hocks treated with the Equitonic had 33% more HA than untreated hocks.

Meanwhile, the untreated control group of working horses showed a marked decline in HA. Even better news: The quantity of synovial fluid in the treated horses had increased dramatically, resulting in a fully lubricated joint. Inflammation all but disappeared in all the treated horses.

What Every Horse Owner Should Know

I am so happy and pleased with the remarkable results the Equitonic 9 produces, I can’t imagine owning a horse without one! I can’t stop talking about it. I want every horse owner to know that this is available to all of us. It’s so easy to use, nothing to pack and carry, nothing to organize, just pull it out of your pocket and turn it on. The horses love it and I get to see results.

– Dorothy Durrant

The results of the studies confirmed what Equitonic users already knew: Using the device on horses relieved pain and inflammation and accelerated recovery 100 percent of the time. The second conclusion, that the Equitonic dramatically increased HA explains why this sound-wave healing device actually works.
