**SeaClimate Salt Therapy - Autumn Discount**

With the change in seasons fast approaching, why not give your horse a boost with out SeaClimate Salt Therapy.

What is Salt Therapy?

Our SeaClimate system creates a microclimate similar to that found in salt caves or at the beach. Replicating this ionised environment is a key aspect of salt therapy treatments. Salt is a natural anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antihistamine and horses having trouble with breathing, allergies or skin irritations can experience significant and lasting symptom relief following regular equine salt therapy. Salt therapy provides a natural, non-invasive and drug free therapy for performance horses in all disciplines.

How it works

The fine salt particles emitted into the salt therapy chamber are inhaled, acting directly on the airways. Mucus is broken down, leading to clearer airways from the first session. Once in the lungs, the antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory action or the salt works to treat conditions of the upper and lower respiratory tract including COPD and seasonal allergies.

Although salt therapy was initially used to treat respiratory conditions, it was soon discovered that it can be of great benefit to those suffering from skin problems. Whilst inhaled salt particles become absorbed into the bloodstream and work from the inside, during a session salt also settles on the horse’s coat. This is absorbed by the skin, helping to treats problems, such as sweet itch and mud fever, by killing bacteria and reducing irritation through its anti-inflammatory properties.

SeaClimate can also benefit otherwise 'healthy' horses by increasing lung function, promoting healthier skin and coat, and increasing general wellbeing. It has also be shown to be greatly beneficial after heavy work or competitions by aiding the recovery process. Older equine athletes may also benefit from salt therapy as the anti-inflammatory treatments can help to combat the effects of ageing on the muscles and joints.

We use the highest possible calculated dose (this may vary depending on certain ailments) giving your horse the maximum benefit from their session and the best possible value for money.

All bookings made until the end of October will receive a 15% discount - making them just £34.

When horses stay with us on rehab livery we know how important it is to keep them in a happy and healthy routine.

Our rehabilitation and fittening packages not only include sessions on our Water Treadmill, SeaClimate Salt Therapy and Combi Floor, but also include daily turnout/exercise as appropriate to your horse. Whilst stabled they will receive adlib hay or haylage, a deep straw or shavings bed, daily grooming and a weekly spa bath.

We strongly believe that the happier and more relaxed your horse is here with us, the more benefit they will gain from the therapies they are receiving.

JJ has been with us this week whilst her owner enjoys a few days away, safe in the knowledge that she is getting treated like one of our own whilst she is here.

Both of these lovely horses (coincidently both called Socks) are currently staying with us on rehab livery.

The beautiful Socks (chestnut) has joined us for 3 weeks to help build her strength and stamina following a suspensory injury earlier this year. Her lovely owner has worked incredibly hard to get her to this point and, after consulting her vet, it was decided that introducing some low intensity water treadmill work could help continue her road to recovery.

One of our other current liveries, also called Socks (bay) is with us for a slightly different reason. Having struggled with EMS and recurrent bouts of laminitis, his owner was struggling to get his weight under control and gave us a call. He has settled in really well, and after just 5 days we are already noticing the changes in him. He is now with us for the next few weeks and on a programme of daily exercise, treadmill and combi floor sessions. We're certainly looking forward to his before and after photos!

Phew, what a day! A mixture of over 15 first timers, residential rehabilitation and fittening liveries, competition horses and older horses who found the cool conditions of the therapy centre an ideal way to exercise out of the unexpected heat. Several also made the most of our Combi Floor and SeaClimate Salt Therapy room whilst they were here.

With the ever-changing UK climate, our Water Treadmill offers a great alternative form of exercise when the weather is too hot, too cold, too wet or anything in between. We also offer short stay liveries if you are finally able to jet off on holiday and would like your horse to enjoy some pampering whilst you are away.

We are able to customise our programs to suit you and your horse. Just pop us a message to find out more.

There’s a reason the Equissage pulse is one of the top equine massage units on the market! By relaxing the back muscles, increasing blood flow and reducing swelling, your horse will be feeling great after his or her session.

Make use of this service before or after exercising your horse at Sterling Equine Therapy, whether that be on the treadmill or arena hire! Use it after a spa bath, or perhaps after the solarium…there’s no bad time to use the Equissage!

CRYOTHERAPY

Here at Sterling Equine Therapy we have a fabulous Frio-Horse 'next generation' cooling machine. The Frio-Horse not only greatly reduces swelling, inflammation and hematoma, but also offers some of the best preventative treatment and care for tendons, bruises, laminitis and recovery.

With its controllable temperature cooling pads you are at no risk of frost-bite and the temperature stays constant throughout treatment. University testing has proven that the inflammation value drops 14 times better with the Frio-Horse than the same treatment with ice and cold packs.

The cooling effect pe*****tes 30mm into the tissue, causing a 10*C difference after 15 minutes, whilst ice only pe*****tes to 4mm.

A fabulous treatment to combine with the Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field therapy that is offered by our Combi-floor.

20min duel Cryotherapy and Combi-floor treatments are just £35

First-timers: We take the time to make sure the horses have a relaxed and enjoyable first experience, so that when we start to work them a little harder next time, they’re already nice and comfortable on the treadmill!

It was lovely to have the beautiful Keela Jane (below) and her friend Harley visit us today. It was Harley's first time on a water treadmill and as such he was booked in for a starter session to acclimatise him to the equipment. He took to it like a pro and by the end of his session he was walking through the water like he'd been doing it forever.

Our initial starter sessions are just £18 throughout the month of July.
