How does it work?

Spa water is maintained between 2 and 4 degrees celcius to minimise heat and inflammation. This provides analgesic pain management as well as inhibiting enzyme degeneration of tendons, post injury.
Salt water solution acts as a hypertonic poultice as well as having a natural healing effect on open wounds. As the water gets colder, its ability to carry oxygen increases and as the spa is also aerated, the oxygen content is dramatically increased. It is believed that the spa has similar effects on internal equine leg injuries to that of hyperbaric chamber treatments do on humans; and with topical wounds, re-oxygenation allows natural defence systemes to intensify with therapy.

“I used the Equicool Spa before and after each show, as well as for maintencance during training. The benefits are undisputed – my horses’ feet have improved, they recover faster post competition and I have fewer injuries since I started using the spa” – Barry Taylor (Springbok Rider & Top Showjumping Trainer
