Benefits of Equistix
Using EquiStix as part of your regular warm-up and cool-down or grooming routine increases circulation and blood flow to muscle tissue. Unrestricted blood flow is a vital part in full muscle recovery; restricted blood flow to muscles not only hinders repair, but limits muscle growth. By relaxing tight muscles following exercise, you can aid in tissue repair, in turn enhance muscle growth, and ultimately maximize your horse’s performance.
EquiStix as part of a regular routine increases flexibility, and as we all know, flexibility is critical for progressive development in speed, agility, control, strength, and endurance. Using EquiStix will ensure that all that hard work that you both have put into training does not go to waste!
While equine massage and chiropractic sessions can be greatly beneficial, they can also be time consuming, take weeks or months to schedule, and can be very costly. EquiStix allows you to reduce frequency of professional sessions or maximize benefits between sessions. EquiStix can be easily packed to bring the benefits of massage anywhere you go! It is a great addition to your show supplies for a busy show weekend to keep your horse limber and relaxed between classes, without spending valuable time and energy in the warm-up arena!
