Cold Salt Water Equine Therapy Spa

The Equine Salt Water Hydrotherapy Spa is based on the therapeutic use of cold sea water.

It is widely known that sea water has incredible anti-inflammatory effects which supports healing and helps to protect against injury.

What does it actually do?
The spa works in several different ways which combine to produce extraordinary healing results:

1. Temperature: The Spa water is chilled to between 2 °C and 4 °C, to reduce heat and inflammation. At this temperature, analgesic pain management is provided and enzyme degeneration of tendons post trauma is inhibited.
2. Salt Concentration: The salt acts as a hypertonic poultice, reducing heat while having a natural healing effect on wounds. Water density increases with salt concentration, which in turn increases pressure to aid fluid and waste dispersal.
3. Aeration: This has a massaging effect on the leg, and increases the dissolved oxygen content of the spa solution.

4. Depth: The depth of the water is proportionate to the pressure exerted on the leg which aids fluid and waste dispersal. Water depth of the spa is adjustable dependent upon the position and severity of injury.
5. Biological Control: Temperature and chemical levels combine to eliminate the transfer of microbiological infection.
6. Dissolved Oxygen: As water temperature decreases, its ability to carry oxygen increases. Increased oxygenation through the introduction of aeration is believed to enhance natural defence systems, much like the use of a hyperbaric chamber for humans.
