EQUINE PHYSIOTHERAPY WITH

DIRECTIONAL-STROKING®

THE G5® MECHANICAL MASSAGE SYSTEM

For overs 50 years now, the G5® mechanical massage system has been used by physio and massage therapists as a complement to their manual massage techniques.


Le The G5® system is designed to assist the therapist in his/her treatment practice, in order to help him/her being more efficient whilst also reducing his/her effort and the the fatigue experienced, especially during deep-tissue massage manoeuvres.

The G5® system generates a unique and patented movement of

Vibro-Percussion, combining two vertical and horizontal forces that enable a mobilization of conjunctival tissue in an effective, deep and very comfortable way for the horse.

In particular, infrasounds properties help loosen bronchial mucus (thixotropy), improve throphism, relax muscles and soften scar tissues, which helps to maintain mobility in soft tissue structures, to stimulate trigger points and to reduce haematomas & tendonitis.

THE DIRECTIONAL-STROKING®

When using the G5® Equitec®, the lower the motor frequency, the deeper the vibratory waves will penetrate into the tissue. On the other hand, the higher the motor frequency, the more superficial the treatment, inducing hyperhaemia and local increase of blood and lymph circulation.

 

This simple vibratory technique, tried and tested in human medicine for 50 years, fits perfectly within the variety of equine osteopathy and veterinary treatments, thus constituting a consistent and effective variety of techniques.
