Light therapy, also known as “photo-therapy” uses a combination of super luminous (visible) and Infra-Red or IR (invisible) light and gentle warmth to treat damage to skin, as well as problems with the muscles, tendons, bones and ligaments of the neck and back.
The light works by gently stimulating the blood supply in the area, providing extra oxygen and nutrients to the damaged tissue. It also stimulates the lymphatic system, enabling waste products to be removed more quickly, reducing inflammation. This also accelerates the natural shedding process, producing a smoother, glossier coat. Used regularly over time, the infrared therapy solarium will help maintain the natural oils found in your horse’s skin giving him a glossy coat and naturally healthy appearance.
