What can you expect from an Equine SCENAR treatment?
During the horses treatment, I use the device either as a stand alone tool, or I connect an attachment like gloves or a comb to the device to change how it can be used.
The device or attachment is placed on the horses body in certain places and in a certain order depending on what desired outcome is required. Occasionally the horse may be damped down with a sponge to maximise contact.
There is no special requirement for a place or time of treatment, except in the case of pre and post competition SCENAR Equine treatment. During the treatment it is necessary to provide the most comfortable position for the myself and the horse, so having a friendly environment or special friend present can help your horse relax more.
How your horse acts after a treatment completely depends on the horse, and every horse is different! It is possible that the horse will feel energised and playful after a treatment, or sometimes can be tired and toned down. They may drink lots of water, urinate frequently or appear stiff and sore. All totally normal reactions to have to this device.
