  Do I need training to use it?

Q​uestion 7

 My horse has Kissing Spine does this help?


Colic is one of the most frightening things an owner will deal with, CETS is an effective emergency treatment for colic in most instances, the very deep effect of oscillation will relax the gut and can break down many impactions enabling the horse to pass them, this will normally occur during the first 30 minutes of therapy. We have many clients who have credited CETS with relieving colic and its regular use has also been seen to reduce the incidence of attacks in colic prone horses. ( Cyclo-ssage Equine would like to make clear that we always advise clients to call out the vet asap if a colic is suspected)

Q​uestion 5

My horse gets stiff after competition will this help?


Think about this in human terms, if you strain or damage a muscle it will usually go into spasm causing both pain and reduced movement this will often result in further secondary problems as you change your posture in an attempt to reduce pain and stay comfortable, for example a lower back injury will often result in neck and shoulder stiffness/pain as a result of changes in how you stand or hold yourself using your muscles in a different way to function. Your horse reacts in just the same way so using the CETS (Cyclo-ssage Equine Therapy System) will effectively reduce all muscle spasm/pain, increase mobility and allow you to begin the process of increasing the strength and integrity of the affected muscles. Muscle injury often occurs because the horses core strength is not sufficient for the demands being placed on it, CETS is an effective and powerfull assistance during training and exercise to enable you to maximise muscle development and strength. 

Q​uestion 3

Can it help with arthritic problems?


Kissing spine is a very variable condition in its response to most forms of treatment or therapy, we have seen many success stories with the CETS and will always be happy to come out to a client to access their horse’s response to this particular form of therapy. This can be used both pre op and post op as well as being beneficial to horses being injected.

Q​uestion 8

  Are there any side effects?


Stiffness after competition or training can be due to many different factors, CETS will deal effectively with most of these issues including azotoria, age related stiffness, cold muscles and travel related issues.


As your horses career progress’s and you start jumping bigger tracks the impact of landing over fences increases dramatically often causing jarring in the neck and shoulders, this then effects the horse’s ability to make tight turns and bascule correctly over fences often landing on the wrong lead. This results in a massive reduction in performance. The CETS can be used between rounds to solve this problem as well as during training to increase core strength. Horses with this issue will often be seen to be very “one sided” which untreated will lead to asymmetric muscle development.


Arthritic joints cause many secondary symptoms, e.g. an arthritic hock will cause stiffness in the back and neck as the horse seeks to compensate, this will cause more low grade pain/soreness and inevitably shorten and change the horses usual gait. Using the CETS will reduce the compensatory symptoms, combat asymmetrical muscle development and effectively lower or eliminate pain. Gait and stride length will improve and the horse will also be far more comfortable.


Vets often recommend physiotherapy to speed and assist recovery. This is normally carried out by a registered physiotherapist by way of regular weekly or monthly visits, the problem is then maintaining progress between visits, many horses will “go backwards” before the next session. The CETS used daily will not only maintain progress but normally speed up the entire process significantly.  (Always discuss with your vet first, we are always happy to talk with vets who are not familiar with CETS)


The CETS is specifically designed to be user friendly and simple to operate, great attention has been paid both to the comfort of the horse and the ease of use in the stable environment. We provide all our clients (subject to location) with on site training and are always available by phone or email should further advice be needed.


There are no known side effects to this type of therapy, the effect of oscillating therapy is to dilate blood vessels, increase bloodflow, reduce muscular stress, stimulate lymphatic flow, reduce toxin levels , reduce mental stress, lower heart rate reduce/eliminate low grade pain and increase mobility.
