How did you hear about Cytowave?
"Tammy Brockman works on our horses with massage and other techniques. She saw demo's of it and recommended it".
What condition did you want to treat?
"Travel sickness prevention. Both horses had been transported from Seattle and had arrived just days before. They had been in trucks or holding barns for 12 days. Both were very stressed and had mild coughs. We wanted to ensure there were no problems from the traveling."
How did you feel about the results?
"During the treatments both horses relaxed and obviously enjoyed the treatment. They were calm with no signs of restlessness, nervousness, or discomfort. After the treatments they were turned out and settled down very well, grazing, rolling, and sleeping. The coughs did not continue."
What would you tell someone who hasn't used Cytowave but is curious?
"Ask for a demo. I was concerned before I purchased the unit because we don't have performance injuries but we do need something for chronic problems and maintenance. At the demo we used it on a 21 year old mare with chronic laminitis. The effect on her was dramatic. Before the treatment she was lethargic and stiff. After the treatment she was energetic and running. "
As someone who heals both humans and horses, what are your thoughts on Cytowave technology?
"Healing is not just treating signs and symptoms. It's correctng the underlying cause of the symptoms. That's why it requires more than one treatment."
