Magnets: Use, Don't Abuse!

Armadillo's Founder Justin Hoon is an Equine Sports Therapist. He has been using magnets as part of treatment for many years.

'Using Static magnets is like having a stretch or a warm-up. They simply increase the circulation in the area you put them. If an increase in circulation helps the condition you are treating, then static magnets will help.'

'But Magnets are not a miracle cure.' Warns Justin

'If an increase in circulation is bad, ie in the case of open wounds, or even headaches, magnets should not be used.'

Used only at rest, magnets are proven to aid healing, to reduce the risk of injury and to alleviate the symptoms of arthritis and similar conditions. They should only ever be used at rest and never during work as if an injury occurs, bleeding is increased by the magnets.

Armadillo's Magnetic Wraps, Winner of the BETA New Products Award, can be wrapped anywhere around the body of the horse or rider, allowing magnetism to be applied exactly where it is needed. Great for yards where many horses can be treated for their individual problems all with one product. This versatile product replaces the need to stock many different magnetic products.
