My dog had a very traumatic experience at a dog park when she was a puppy that affected her for years. She was afraid of other animals, people, skittish and generally OCD. A horse friend mentioned the Equitonic. I purchased the new CHI Palm and after 8 sessions over 4 days Josie was actually excited to go for a walk. After several months it was like the Palm gave new life to my dog! Thank you so much!!!
Horse presenting with Tendonitis, wouldn’t put weight on front leg. Treated front shoulder (Mind) setting 10-15 minutes, eight times per day. Horse was able to walk again. After steroid RX, and continued daily Equitonic treatments the horse could run again!
I bought the Equitonic about 2 months ago to treat a tendon injury in my weanling filly. She had wacked the entensor tendon at the fetlock joint on her left front leg. The tendon showed some thickening with a lump at the site of injury. She never took a lame step but as a horse showing in breeding classes this would hurt her show record. After 2 months with no sign of diminished swelling, my vet suggested sweat wraps. The wraps only made the filly mad. They did not reduce the size of the thickening. After almost two months of 5 day a week treatments, the thickening is down about 80%. The filly’s mother has been semi-retired. She is a retired race horse that found a second career in dressage. We have been stuck at first/second level because she has arthritis in her hocks and chonic back pain. This was making her unreliable in the show ring. She was never really lame but just sore. This is the reason she was bred. I have been using the machine on her. Her attitude has changed. She is sounder than she has been in years. She is schooling third level dressage. I hope to get her back into the dressage arena and earn my USDF bronze medal with her.
Problem: Black Labrador 2-years-old, with a torn cruciate ligament from a direct hit into a door frame. She was instantly unable to put weight on her back leg. She was started on Rimadyl for 10 days to treat inflammation. The vet recommended surgery. This was devastating news as this dog was trained for dog shows. Infratonic therapy was started the next day.
Treatment: Infratonic therapy was started in 24 hours with the following protocol: all 3 settings were used during each session, beginning with Mind setting directly over the knee and surrounding area for 30 min, followed by an hour session starting with Mind, then Body with it positioned under her paw to work its way up the leg. Finished with Mind setting for sweeping over body 5-6x all the way down the leg and tail.
The next 8 days following injury, the 3 settings were used for hour, 2 hr, and 3 hour sessions through out the day; beginning with Mind at the point of injury, body under paw, and finish with sweeping on Mind setting over the body. There was a 2-day break because of access to the machine, and then more sessions for 3 days using Mind/Body/Mind 3 times a day for one hour sessions following the above protocol: Mind directly to injury, followed by Body placing it under paw, finish with Mind sweeping over body, down the leg.
Quality of Life Improvements: Immediately following the injury, the Labrador walked on 3 legs. Initially the Lab was very restless, and the therapy seemed to induce some discomfort. After a few sessions, the lab became so relaxed during the sessions. As the treatments continued, the dog began to anticipate the start of infratonic therapy and would settle back and lay quietly during the therapy. They observed the dog to be so relaxed.
The third day the lab began bearing weight with a slight limp. The dog was re-evaluated by a specialist for surgery, and informed my niece that he could not do surgery at this time because the dog had a normal gait. He did feel that the dog had frayed the ligament to some degree. He did anticipate the dog would eventually need surgery as she increased her activity. Total time logged for Infratonic therapy over a 14 day period was 30 hours using the Mind/Body/Mind. Her activity for 3 weeks was cage rest with gradual short walks and mild exercise.
It will be almost 8 weeks since the injury and the lab has an occasional limp, despite her increased activity. Her future is uncertain for dog shows, but for now this family is thankful this dog was spared a costly surgery that also had a risky outcome. The dog walks with a normal gait other than an occassional limp. My niece has used Infratonic on her other show dogs, and their performance was noticeably improved following a treatment prior to their show.
At my farm, we use the CHI Palm all the time. The CHI Palm Leash easy to handle for myself & definitely in treating the animal by using the leash, I felt I still had more leeway in how I handled my CHI unit when treating an animal- if an animal makes a sudden movement they could dislodge the device from our hand, potentially dropping or bumping it. The leash prevents or inhibits that danger, while yielding control and comfort.
For example: I let one of our volunteers borrow my unit, his main challenge being the small of his back. By using the Leash he could ‘hold onto’ the Palm & adjust or retrieve its location, with ease.
Recently I was treating a horse who came to us about a decade ago with neurological issues. He loves his CHI treatments but his movements can become unpredictable. As I was holding the device (with the Leash on, thank goodness) working on his rather large shoulder area, he was nearly dozing then suddenly reacted to the sensations of the Palm which pitched him slightly in my direction. He did not fully lose his balance but in order to help him stabilize I placed my hands along his muscle line until he relaxed again so we could resume his session. Had I not had the Leash on, his need of my immediate attention might have caused me to drop my unit & damage it! Instead, we happily resumed our session and, as usual, he found great relief in his Palm time
I have also used the Palm and the Infratonic 9 for our 14-year-old chihuahua when she stopped eating and her health began to fail. She lost all energy and dropped a lot of weight. I set up the Infratonic 9 on a positioning stand focused on her crate and kept it on 24/7. After a week and a half, she started eating a bit of food and was soon after improving immensely. My chihuahua gravitates towards the I9 and I share my CHI products with her. The I9 gave her the energy she was not able to produce for herself at the time. She recovered nicely and is back to her old perky self. Thank you again for having these great products.
I was very happy to receive the Equitonic 9. I have an old break of my tibia which did not heal straight along with multiple fractures on the head of the tibia. I recently suffered an injury to the femur on the same leg. The temporary lack of use of my knee caused the arthritis to escalate and increased the pain. After a long treatment with the Equitonic, the pain subsided to pre-injury levels, or better and the mobility increased. I also have a Missouri Foxtrotter who has been cocking his hind fetlocks, particularly his left one. I’m suspecting arthritis is developing and the Equitonic is working great on him too. This is a wonderful product!
I have been using the Infratonic 9 since 2014 for various ailments, i.e muscle aches, better quality of sleep, relaxation sessions, etc., and was very satisfied with the performance of the device because it delivered. Then June of 2015, I injured my left shoulder during a workout and for months had to endure a lot of pain. During that time, I used the I-9 on a daily basis three to four 20 minute sessions on different areas of the shoulder and neck. Never once did I resort to taking strong pain medication or muscle relaxers except for an occasional NSAID (a total of 5). In December 2015 I was finally pain free and grateful for the I-9 which helped me recover quickly and safely. I recommend this device to anyone seeking pain-inflammation-stress-anxiety relief in a very effective way without dangerous side effects. Come to think of it, I even used this device on my pet (beagle) when he had sprained his paw. Within two days there was an 80% improvement. Just remember, put it where it hurts and take it with you when traveling!

I first became acquainted with the Sound Vitality company over twenty years ago. My mother bought the equine unit for our horses. Approximately twelve years ago, I tore a muscle in my shoulder. It was very painful and I couldn’t lift it or move it away from my body. I was told after an MRI that I would need surgery. My mother brought me her machine and within two days, I could lift my arm out and away from my body and above my head. I got a cortisone shot and avoided surgery. Needless to say, I bought one and will never be without it. My mother and I recently purchased two of the newer model, the Infratonic 9. My dad uses it for restless leg syndrome. I am using it on a dog with an enlarged heart to move fluid and also on a hurt horse to repair damage from a severe cut. Needless to say, I know it works and anyone who tries it will never be without one, especially if you have chronic pain and you find relief. With a thirty-day guarantee, I cannot believe anyone wouldn’t try it. It REALLY works.
