Magnetic Therapy






 


Ever wondered how Magnetic Therapy works?
 
 
 
 
Magnetic Fields are the Core of Life 
 
 
A magnetic field is at the very foundation of life on this planet. Millions of years ago when the first signs of life were emerging, the Earth's geomagnetic field was perhaps hundreds of times stronger. Our bodies were developed in an environment rich in oxygen, water, nutrients, gravity and magnetism.
 
 
All of the body’s systems are electromagnetic in nature. The process of cell division, the very core of the living system, takes place due to magnetic energy.
 
 
A magnet has two poles, North and South. Opposite poles attract, and conversely like poles repel. When a magnet is placed against the body it will either attract those cells that are opposite or repel cells that are alike. In basic terms this increases activity of the cells which in turn increases the speed at which cells regenerate and repair.
 
 
Some magnets are more effective than others – why is this?
 
 
Most magnets are Neodymium and only present one pole to the body. This means they only repel or attract blood vessels of opposite charge to the magnet, making them half as effective. VITAflex® magnets (which are used in Equilibrium’s Therapy ® range) are twice as effective as they present both positive and negative poles to the body.  By encouraging the constant repelling or attracting the blood cells, VITAflex ® magnets are highly effective at keeping cells in an active regenerating state.
 
 
What makes VITAflex® magnets so effective?
 
 
VITAflex® magnets possess strong, circular and permanent magnetic fields of alternating pole sequences which can penetrate deeply into the body tissue.  When applied to a troubled area, minute electrical voltages are created. The electrically conductive blood moves within the blood vessels under alternating magnetic fields, therefore building up voltage and making the cells excited (this is known as the Hall effect). This excited state helps improve cell metabolism encouraging cells to regenerate much quicker.
 
 
 
 
 
In addition, they have a heat insulating structure in the form of extremely thin gold or platinum coloured aluminium reflector. This results in a slight local warming where the magnet touches the skin and dilation of the blood vessels, thereby improving circulation which accelerates the influx of nutrients and the removal of toxins.
 
 
                                       
 
 
Benefits of Magnetic Therapy
 
 
 
 
Magnetic Therapy has been proven to have both positive effects in humans and animals in treating scar tissue, inflammation, reducing swelling, stiffness, muscle cramps and arthritis, all afflictions which are commonly experienced by veteran horses and ponies. 
 
 
 
 
 
The EQUILIBRIUM Therapy® range uses VITAflex® magnets, which have been shown to be twice as effective as standard Neodymium magnets. This is because Neodymium magnets present only one pole to the body, meaning they only repel or attract blood vessels of opposite charge to the magnet. VITAflex® magnets, however, present both positive and negative poles to the body and thereby encourage the constant repelling or attracting the blood cells, making them highly effective at keeping cells in an active regenerating state. 
 
 
 
 
 
These VITAflex® magnets possess strong, circular and permanent magnetic fields of alternating pole sequences which can penetrate deeply into the body tissue.  When applied to a troubled area, minute electrical voltages are created. The electrically conductive blood moves within the blood vessels under alternating magnetic fields, thereby building up voltage and bringing the cells to an excited state. This helps improve cell metabolism encouraging cells to regenerate much quicker.

The Equilibrium Therapy® Magnetic Back Pad helps to relieve stiffness, muscle soreness and promote faster healing in horse’s backs. With back trouble an all too common side effect of the enormous stress that domestication and riding places upon our horse’s backs, this innovative product has become a regular therapy in many yards, to keep horses’ backs comfortable. 

 

 

EQUILIBRIUM Therapy® Magnetic Chaps help to relieve stiffness, reduce filling and promote faster healing in horse’s legs.

 
These hard-wearing, lightweight and breathable chaps are perfect to keep the joints of veteran horses loose and flexible. They are also ideal for horses with tendon problems, splints, arthritis, navicular, bone chips and general knocks, bumps and scars.
 
 
 
 
 
All products in the EQUILIBRIUM Therapy® magnetic range incorporate powerful VITAflex® magnetic strips that are completely flexible, comfortable for the horse and will not cause pressure points. These magnets are protected inside waterproof, removable pillow packs that can be positioned where healing is needed and offer strong, circular permanent magnetic fields of alternating pole sequences that increase tissue penetration.
 
 
To date, no negative side effects are known from treatments with static magnetic fields in general and from VITAflex® in particular. However caution should be used by those people with electrical devices, such as pacemakers or hearing aids.  It is also recommended that pregnant women or pregnant animals should avoid strong magnetic fields.
 
 
Should I combine magnetic and massage therapies?
 
 
Where there is a specific back injury or chronic problem, we recommend that professional advice is first sought from a vet, and all tack especially the saddle is checked by a qualified fitter.  An initial treatment regime can incorporate the Equilibrium magnetic pad.  Once inflammation is reduced, a combined therapy regime is very useful as a maintenance programme.  The magnetic back pad should be used every night, and the massage pad once during the day
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Customers have had a great deal of success with these magnetic products.
 
 
 
GB Olympic Event Rider, Tina Cook, has been using Equilibrium Therapy Magnetic Chaps and Back Pads and the Massage Pad on all of her horses at both the eventing and racing yards.
 
 
 
 
 
"I started using Equilibrium Therapy magnetic chaps on a horse with a small lump on its leg which wasn't responding to treatment. I was so pleased with the way the magnetic chaps reduced the lump that I now use them regularly on my horses overnight. They don't slip or rub, have reduced leg swelling and helped the ones with sore shins.
 
 
For their backs I use a combination of massage and magnetic therapy and find that the horses are more supple and ready to work.
 
 
The Equilibrium Therapy range has proven to be a safe, effective and labour saving way to treat my horses. It is now part of my daily routine."
 
 
 
 
 
“Puzzle, my 6 year old mare developed a large splint on her left fore. Quite common in young horses starting their eventing career. After ten days of using the magnetic chaps at night there was a considerable reduction in inflammation.”
 
 
Before using the magnetic chaps I could not get Ruby's puffy hind legs to improve. Ridden, rested, turned out, kept in, bandaged, hosed, none of it made any difference! However, just three days of wearing the magnetic chaps (whilst she is stabled during the day) has made a significant improvement and she has much less soft swelling. She will now continue to wear them as a preventative measure."  
 
 
“The magnetic back pad has made a big difference to my show horse.  I leave it on over night and she is much freer when I ride her first thing in the morning.  Her show results have really improved since using the magnetic back pad.”
 
 
“This is such an easy way of using magnetic therapy.  I use it on my horses when travelling to shows and have really seen an improvement in their way of going.”
