Why is Far Infrared good for horses?
Before making it’s way to the domestic market, Far Infrared technology was first used in medical practices for it’s medicinal benefits. Medical journals document the effects that exposure to FIR has on the bodies of both people, and animals, and in both there are many benefits including; improving basal temperatures, encouraging blood circulation, helping ease muscle and arthritic pains, as well as helping boost the metabolisms and immune systems.
This is why, over the last several years FIR has been introduced as an effective method of soothing horses!
Studies have shown that the deep heat of infrared can help with circulation as the heat penetrates the skin, into the muscle tissue and encourages the dilation of blood vessels. Infrared is also considered to be a very soothing and calming type of heat for muscles and joints.
Far infrared can reduce pain, stiffness, and fatigue to help with the overall condition and performance of a horse.
Because FIR is a natural pain relief, many think that there is no way it can be as affective as manmade drugs. However, most pain relief medications are made to numb the pain by blocking nerve receptors in the brain, rather than actually heal the pain. FIR works to heal, rather than numb.
Lactic acid build up is one of the major causes of stiff muscles. FIR can help shorten a horse’s recovery time and prevent further injuries.
Everyone knows that bad circulation can be the cause of a lot of problems. Good circulation means:
- Faster healing time
- Natural pain relief
- Promotes cell growth
- Relieves aching and sore muscles
- Completely natural
- No synthetic drugs
- Prevents recurring problems
