An increase or decrease in blood flow or circulation in the body can help benefit or hinder the heart and every other system within the body. There is not a single part that does not require fresh new blood to remain healthy. Increased blood circulation improves oxygen rich blood flow to extremities. Your horse is an athlete and therefore requires good circulation to achieve peak performance and optimised muscle tone. Additionally, circulation enhances recovery from work or injury, oxygenates the blood, reduces swelling and joint discomfort prevents lactic acid build-up and the accumulation of toxins. Equissage CVT improves blood flow while also helping remove toxins via the lymphatic system.

Under normal conditions you may use Equissage® daily. We recommend at a minimum, every day that you ride. This is a maintenance strategy to address warm-up or warm-downs to mitigate lactic acid build-up. We recommend increasing the treatment schedule to twice daily when your horse is injured or recovering. As a guideline a 20 minute Equissage® treatment will have residual benefits for 5-8 hours.
