WAYS TO USE
Neck and Shoulders
Massaging the neck, shoulder, and chest region of the horse: Use moderate to light pressure when massaging your horse and pay close attention to how he responds. You can use either side of your wellness wand on these areas, using red-light, heat, and vibration. It is always best to start with heat and light first to allow your horse to feel the wand pressure. Add vibration slowly, starting at the first level. Run your wand in the direction of the hair while massaging your horse. Do not apply excessive pressure near boney areas.
Back and Abdomen
While massaging your horse’s back and abdomen, you may use the red-light therapy side, or stones side of your wand, as their back has a wide strip of fascia. Avoid running the wand directly over the spine, as this can result in bruising. Remember you may add red-light therapy, heat, and vibration at any time. When massaging your horse, always remember to go with the grain of the hair, working your way from the front to the back.
Hips and Hamstrings
Use either side of the Wellness Wand, using red-light therapy, heat, and vibration to massage the horse’s hip and hamstring regions. There is a lot of deep fascia in this region, which can get very uncomfortable during riding. Using either side of your wand, red light therapy, or heated stone side, along with vibration is a fantastic option for the large muscle groups on the horse’s hips. You may alternate from red light therapy side, to heated stones side while working each area. The same is true for the hamstrings. During the massage, keep an eye out for your horse’s reaction and be careful not to stand immediately behind your horse.
