Developed by a Swedish-based company and brought to the United States by Acuswede, the Accuhorsemat specifically targets acupressure points increase blood flow to the horse’s muscles. Accupressue therapy has been proven to reduce tension and promote faster recovery after training. The Accuhorsemat can also be used before training to help horses loosen up, and to relieve pain from tight muscles. Horses’ sensitive skin and nervous systems allow for noticeable results with an Accuhorsemat session in as little as 15-30 minutes.
According to Deborah Marshall, DVM, “As a veterinarian who specializes in acupuncture, non-invasive mats on these blankets stimulate the same acupuncture points I often focus on for my patients. They are perfect for between visits to keep circulation flowing and promote relaxation.
Accuhorsemats are adjustable, and the insertable acupressure pads allow for a customizable experience for each horse. Accuhorsemat blankets are easy to pack with other horse show equipment and require no electricity or batteries- making them the perfect therapy option.
