MFR (Myofascial Release) THERAPHY
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.
Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)
The use of Myofascial Release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which our therapists use a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy. We promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.
Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.

What is PEMF therapy? PEMF stands for “pulsed-electromagnetic field” therapy.
What can PEMF do for your Horse or self?
PEMF enhances a bodies ability to HEAL ITSELF at the CELLULAR LEVEL
PEMF Can be used anywhere on the body...
to treat the whole body or specific areas or injuries
PEMF is non-invasive, not painful and does not require sedation or
veterinary assistance to perform
PEMF can improve performance, range of motion, speed & strength
PEMF reduces inflammation and relieves pain
PEMF may accelerate healing from injury & illness 2-3 times faster
PEMF can help manage chronic conditions such as arthritis or Cushing's disease without damaging DRUGS
PEMF can be used to loosen and supple a horse physically
PEMF can be used to calm and relax a horse mentally... even right before going in the show ring
PEMF is actually the deepest form of massage... a cellular massage which penetrates deeper than massage, laser or shockwave
PEMF can treat areas not easily reached by other methods...
including the psoas muscle
PEMF can be used to treat and prevent a variety systemic illnesses by stimulating cellular metabolism and improving immunity
PEMF can be done at the show or racetrack, right before or after athletic events, as well as, used at home as regular, preventive therapy
PEMF treatments are not physically demanding on the practitioner and a whole body equine treatment can be done in just 30-45 minutes
PEMF can be used effectively on Horses, People and other Animals
Here are just some of the conditions treated with PEMF
Performance Stress & Body Soreness
Soreness of the Back, Stifle, Joints, Neck, Poll, TMJ, Shoulder or Hooves
Soft Tissue Injuries - Bruised or torn Muscles, Tendons & Ligaments
Hoof Abscess, Stone Bruises (Relief usually in just 1- 3 sessions)
Conditions of Age - Arthritis, Cushings Disease
Systemic Illness, Immunity Issues
Anhidrosis(Inability to sweat normally, usually resolved in just 1-2 sessions)
Wounds from Surgery or Injury including Non-Healing Wounds
Bone issues - Normal and Non-healing fractures
Laminitis, EPM or Founder
Lackluster Health or Performance
Improve Behavioral Issues associated with Stress, Mental Tension and Pain
Faster Recovery from Performance, Illness or Injury
This technology is one of the few that has true independent clinical trials and scientifically proven to provide results.
