RECOMMENDATIONS AND GUIDANCE FOR USE:
Always start on a low setting, let your horse acclimate and get used to the sensation.
Take your time: start slowly and watch the cues your Horse will give. You will quickly learn to understand your Horse’s favourite points, heads and speeds. The aim is always to relax the horse first, before moving onto deep tissue and therapeutic use.
FOR RELAXATION PURPOSES:
For the purpose of relaxation only, use low speeds. Stick to large, dense muscles areas and find your horses favourite areas, and work from there.
The ball or flat heads are perfect for providing a relaxing and relieving sensation to your horse.
FOR THERAPEUTIC PURPOSES:
Once your horse is relaxed and used to the percussive motion, you can start to use higher speeds and different head that target deep tissue.
The bullet and fork head are especially effective for deep tissue muscle relief as they penetrate deeper into the muscle than the flat or ball head.
