Thera-Tree®: An Innovative Tool for Therapy and Performance
Thera-Tree® is non-riding device for performance enhancement and therapy. It is used for therapy, optimized performance, recovery and relaxation.
- Alleviates back pain along the topline
- Reduces tightness and stiffness in muscles and joints
- Promotes wellness by optimizing cellular function
- Increases hydration
- Reduces digestive disorders
- Reduces inflammation
- Treats kissing spine
- Pre-ride use allows horses to begin their work limber, pain-free, relaxed, and focused
- Improves cardiovascular performance
- Helps to normalize sweat levels
- Reduces or eliminates “cold back”
- Post-ride use promotes cardiovascular & respiratory recovery
- Relieves muscle soreness & fatigue after exertion
- Reduces anxiety and stress during farrier or veterinarian visits making a safer experience for horse and human
- Reduces stress, anxiety & tension during & after shipping, training, competing
- Promotes relaxation in horses that are stall bound or on restricted movement- like in a trailer
- Reduces stall walking
- Daily use creates happier horses
- Eases anxiety in transporting
- Smooths loading/unloading and general trailering experience
- Essential for frequent transports- keeps horses calm before competitions and lessons
The Science Behind Thera-Tree® and SmartRideRx™
What it Does
We believe the Thera-Tree® affects the electromagnetic field around the horse in the far infrared (FIR) part of the spectrum. Far Infrared energy (FIR) is known to reduce inflammation, lessen pain and promote healing. This energy has a biological effect on tissues, water and hydration at the cellular level, causing noticeable changes in your horse. When your horse is using the Thera-Tree® you will see signs of change and physical relaxation like a quieting of movement, blinking of the eyes, stretching the jaw with repeated yawns, sometimes stretching of the whole body. These behaviors demonstrate the effects of the Thera-Tree®. These changes often begin immediately and seem to reach their concentration within twenty minutes.
See links below for human studies on FIR at Nasa and NCBI
We also believe the Thera-Tree® helps with hydration. By hydration, we mean the ability for water to be absorbed in at the cellular level. Well hydrated cells excell at energy production, cellular repair and replacement. We believe the Thera-Tree® aids your horse's rehydration allowing him to reduce general inflammation and repair damage within tissues. For more information on this see the link below.
A combination of materials, and the processes used in fabrication, as well as the geometry of the Thera-Tree® create a piezoelectric effect. The charge generated in the Thera-Tree® has been proven and measured with a Tektronix oscilloscope in the 40-60 mv range. One of the materials used is carbon fiber. Another is an acrylic alloy, which on its own demonstrates a quality called capacitance, meaning it has an ability to store voltage.
Impact Through Energetic Wavelength
We know the Thera-Tree® emits a field of energy, about 9 cubic feet in size, extending above, below, front and back, and to the sides. It generates a gentle radiant energy, which has been confirmed by thermal imaging.
Far Infrared (FIR)?
We are working to confirm the exact spectrum of this field, but we believe it is in the far infrared (FIR) range. It is interesting to note that FIR has been studied formedical treatment applications, such as infrared saunas.
The long-term health benefits cited in studies match up with those observed in our test horses who have been experiencing this technology daily for 3 ½ years. These include significant improvements in hydration, skin quality, muscle tone and recovery, joint flexibility, relaxation, digestive functioning, cardiovascular performance and lymphatic system circulation.
There is an emerging field of scientific research studying the interaction between light, water, biological functions and cellular health. New scientific theories from Gerald Pollack and Stephanie Seneff, among others, propose that the molecular structure of water is altered when infrared light, absorbed by water, creates zones of differential charge in the water which drive critical cellular functions throughout biological systems in the body.
The Thera-Tree® field seems to have a biological compatibility, creating a resonance coupling effect or field sharing with wave fields from other objects or individuals. The result is an increase in field size and strength, improving balance and stability. This is quite unique and can be demonstrated through a variety of kinesthetic muscle strength tests.
There is much to be discovered in this area of emerging science. Some of our observations have led us to reasonable hypotheses that still have to be proven. While we don’t have all of the proof, this technology is predictable and results are repeatable. We continue to learn, explore benefits, best use practices, and other applications for this technology.
