Troy's work is specific to each horse. Evaluating each potential patient and then using a combination of non-invasive therapies to obtain the desired effects, His overall goal is to find the root of the problem and not just fix the results of the problem. And then the intention is to increase blood flow, which aids "mother nature's" healing process. ** To set up an appointment with Troy for equine services please call (360) 420-7614
We believe that many problems for the horse stem from the human factor. The horse in its own natural environment meanders in the sun, grazes on grass, and roams rested, relaxed, and free. But you add the human factor and then we turn the horse's world upside down. As humans, we introduce stress, confinement, & unnatural feeding programs. The horse being the passive individual that it is tends to internalize all these issues. Consequently, the stomach and intestinal system takes the toll. Reiki massage is used to release this build up.
Pulsating Magnetic Therapy
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) is a relatively new and a very effective form of physical therapy. It's used in the treatment of soft tissue and bone damage. PEMF is used to accelerate therapeutic response. PEMF will reduce pain, reduce inflammation, stimulate blood flow, increase circulation and help with rehabilitation. We also recommend using PEMF to warm up cold muscles prior to competition.
Troy's idea is to open all the meridians in the body & to promote blood flow through the whole body. He uses an acupressure pen to release the muscles through the acupressure points. The pressure points of the body have a lower frequency than other points of the body. It emits high pitch sounds that increase as the pen becomes centered on each point. A person could be a thumbnail away from the acupressure point and still have marginal results. But with Troy's pen, he has complete accuracy and is able to stimulate the point.
Is used for the treatment of open wounds and connective tissue. Laser therapy increases blood flood and is able to penetrate deeply within the muscle. But, what is not commonly recognized is that laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue. It is the formation of new capillaries that speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly and reduces scar tissue.
Common sense stretches™
Troy has put together a series of stretches that he refers to as his common sense stretches™. Stretching complements the treatment by: enhancing energy flow, softening, relaxing & toning muscles to improve range of motion, increasing flexibility to improve performance and prevent injury and aiding in the rehabilitative and healing processes. The overall goal of the stretches is to maintain and improve your horse's level of fitness while also improving flexibility and level of performance.
