"I use this machine on my horses often. Soreness disappears,
swelling diminishes, etc. I have a mare who had a throat problem
and could not whinny. She didn’t whinny for over 5 years.
After 3 days of a 10 min. session with the Equitonic - she started
whinnying and still is. No further treatment has been necessary."

"Tendonitis - Horse wouldn’t put weight on front
leg. Treated front shoulder (Mind) setting 10-15 minutes, eight
times per day. Horse was able to walk again. After steroid RX,
the horse could run again."
Dr. Cheryl McFarland, Beverly Hills, FL
"A three-year-old thoroughbred filly was found to have
a bad ulcer on her epiglottis, which was interfering with her
racing ability. She habitually made it worse by displacing it
herself out of nervousness. We began using the machine 10 minutes
in the morning. We repeated for another 10 minutes about 10
minutes after the first treatment. This continued for 2 weeks;
sometimes an afternoon 10-minute treatment was added.
The filly was rescoped 14 days later to find we had an 85%
improvement. We continued on for another two weeks, morning
treatments only. This was a very unusual case as the only known
treatment for this condition is drugs and/or surgery. The filly
ran and won her next race after this treatment."

"I have owned an Equisonic since July 1988. How I was
introduced to it was through my Chiropractor who gave me your
newsletter telling how your employees used it on horses as my
chiropractor knew I had horses with lameness and muscle problems.
I knew I needed to try one and have used it extensively for
my horses for their muscle tightness and inflammation in their
feet from the chronic laminitis. It has been heaven sent as
now I can help them relieve their pain. I’ve treated other
friends’ horses with good results. I feel I couldn’t
be without it as it serves me in many ways."

"Fracture of tibial crest with open wound to joint of
thoroughbred horse. Told by several vets that horse would never
be sound to ride except for trail at a walk. After 8 months
and three sets of x-rays no apparent change. Horse was not healing
and would never be sound. Use the Infratonic (Mind) for one
month, every other day, for fifteen minutes to one half hour.
Held transducer directly over fracture.
In only that one month, x-rays taken again. Vet said “I
don’t know what you’re doing, but don’t stop”.
The fracture has almost healed and almost all of the arthritis
was gone. I truly believe the Infratonic healed my horse. He
is not lame at all. And it is all quite amazing. You should
see him run and buck and play and never take a sore step. Thank

"This horse was a wonderful jumper. 9 years old and because
of his size and ability he had contracted a bone chip just below
the left knee. I had watched this horse for a year prior to buying
him. He would jump beautifully for a month and then would be off
for 2 months. She had the leg x-rayed and was told of the bone
chip. This had been going on for a couple of years and would have
continued had the owner not taken ill and decided to sell Bailey.
He was off when I purchased him. I was ready to have the surgery
on the leg when I started the treatments with the CHI. The leg
was scanned a month later and the vet felt that the surgery
wasn’t needed at that time. That was two years ago and
he hasn’t had an off day since.
UPDATE: 4 days ago Bailey slipped off a sidewalk coming back
from a trail. He tweaked his shoulder and limped a quarter of
a mile back to the stables. Thank goodness the Chi machine was
in my truck. I worked on him for one hour and then gave him
an herbal anti-inflammatory. When I started he was on 3 legs;
when I left he was back on all fours. What is really interesting
about this whole CHI thing is that it does work. I believe that
the reason animals responds so well to it, is that they do not
know how not to. They just know that they feel better.
I’ve had people call it Voo Doo and chuckle under their
breath. Yet, my horses are fit and happy. The people who have
the most to say about my methods have 3 horses off and vet bills
climbing. I’ve turned around 2 at the barn and the office
and they now have their own machines. They watched and saw what
it did for me and my babies. Thank you. You have contributed
to my well being. My horses appreciate you too."

"9 month old filly, spooked and hit extensor tendon on
left leg over fetlock joint. Within one week tendon showing
thickening. Did not respond to wraps or sweats. Treated with
Equitonic 20 minutes per day, 5 days per week (Mind) then 10
minutes per day, 5 days per week. Reduction in thickened area
on tendon about 80% in 6 weeks. Now about 90% reduction in tendon
size. Joint almost look normal. Enlargement of joint areas are
faults in conformation. This filly is showing in breeding/sport
horse classes where confirmation makes up a large part of her

"Horse, contusion and ligament damage to joints when hoof
was caught in high fence after horse reared up. A 10 year old
gelding who had reared up against the fence during the night
had been caught in a strenuous biomechanical situation, made
worse by twisting the hindquarters around in a half-circle so
that the forelimb was twisted awkwardly in a form of horse jujitsu,
and was held in that position for hours. Two days after the
incident, the Infratonic was applied to the forelimb, which
was swollen, torn, hot and tender to touch.
Initially, the horse was skittish about the unusual vibratory
sounds from the transducer, which was made one week later. The
immediate results of the Infratonic application were reduction
in swelling and tenderness, which did not return. As the horse
was placed on lead to walk, the hesitancy and limp that had
originally been visible was much less apparent. Then, during
lunging activities, it was possible to observe the horse self-adjusting
to the increased capability of the leg by beginning to place
more weight on the leg and by obtaining a more even stride."
Mary Berry, DC, Richland Hills, TX
"I bought the equitonic about 2 months ago to treat a
tendon injury in my weanling filly. She had wacked the entensor
tendon at the fetlock joint on her left front leg. The tendon
showed some thickening with a lump at the site of injury. She
never took a lame step but as a horse showing in breeding classes
this would hurt her show record. After 2 months with no sign
of diminished swelling, my vet suggested sweat wraps. The wraps
only made the filly mad. They did not reduce the size of the
thickening. After almost two months of 5 day a week treatments,
the thickening is down about 80%.
The filly's mother has been semi-retired. She is a retired
race horse that found a second career in dressage. We have been
stuck at first/second level because she has arthritis in her
hocks and chonic back pain. This was making her unreliable in
the show ring. She was never really lame but just sore. This
is the reason she was bred. I have been using the machine on
her. Her attitude has changed. She is sounder than she has been
in years. She is schooling third level dressage. I hope to get
her back into the dressage arena and earn my USDF bronze medal

"I treated the shin of a horse that was showing inflammation
and a lot of tension. I used the Infratonic (Spirit) for about
45 minutes. After the treatment the inflammation was gone and
the area was much more relaxed. The trainer was impressed with
the dramatic results."
Dudley Wilkerson, Ankeny, IA
"My patient is my 7 year old expensive Oldenburg Dressage
mare, imported and beautiful. She developed ring bone and upward
fixation of the patella ligament. We are training for International
competition. I tested the machine at Big Animals and desperately
want to own the Big Animal product. After using the machine
on her 5 times for 45 minutes each treatment, she was on her
road to recovery.
It also helped heal arthritis in my hands and back. My mare
is being ridden everyday; improving everyday. She is a Grand
Prix horse and I hope to have this machine for her and all the
other horses in our barn. It is remarkable. I am an acupuncturist
and herbalist. This machine worked miracles on Enta, my mare.
This is a powerful healing device. May I have one?"
Tisha Green, Park City, UT
"My horse and I have used the Equitonic consistently for
2 years. Luna, my 8-year-old mare who competes in Endurance
with a very heavy competition schedule, has crooked front legs
and weak front hooves (a lot of stress to this area). I work
as a horseshoer and compete in Endurance with 2 horses; heavy
physical demands daily. I treat Luna 3 times a week on acupressure
points throughout whole body, sweeping (Body) large muscles.
Myself, I treat daily, 2 hours in evening from head to toe
(especially lower back and legs. Luna - with rides every 2-3
weeks including multi-days has consistently finished in top
10, winning many rides and in best condition with no pain medication
after any rides. I have maintained a grueling physical schedule
with only occasional Advil. After every treatment at night,
I sleep well and wake refreshed and ready to go."
