New Pain Relief Technology

You know your horse, and you know when your horse is not performing at his or her peak. Like human athletes, horses tend to experience pain and soreness due to the everyday nature of their activities and overall anatomy. When you notice that your horse is no longer performing at his full potential, what do you do?

You're probably accustomed to thinking that you need to put something into your horse's body to improve his health. Typically, this might require scheduling a trip to the veterinarian or a specialist and medications with the possibility of alarming side-effects. Now, what if that was no longer the case? With AcuLife you don't need to be a veterinarian, acupuncturist or pain expert to help your horse. Anyone can use AcuLife!

AcuLife is based on new pain relief technology. While proper nutrition, water and exercise are the minimum essentials necessary to maintain the health of a horse, their body also requires a continuous flow of energy.

It's been known for thousands of years that specific frequencies of light can cause specific changes within the body. When we go out in the sun, a frequency of light causes our body to make Vitamin D. Another frequency of light (UV) will cause our body to make melanin, the chemical that gives us a sun tan. LifeWave's technology uses this same scientific principle.

What is Acupressure and Acupuncture?

Acupressure is a type of Oriental healing art based on ancient Eastern medicine. A practitioner will typically stimulate acupressure points on the body using fingertips to apply gentle, but firm pressure to relieve pain and discomfort and promote good health.

Acupuncture is similar to acupressure, except that acupuncture involves a practitioner using small needles to puncture certain pressure points along the body in order to help the body attain homeostasis, in order to better heal itself. Both acupressure and acupuncture promote the restored balance of energy throughout the body and for many years these healing modalities have been applied to animals with great success. In fact, acupuncture has been recognized by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) as an accepted and scientifically valid treatment modality.1

However, unlike acupuncture, LifeWave's self-adhesive AcuLife patch is a needle-less way to apply the same principles of Oriental medicine and acupressure used to balance and improve the energy flow in horses. The result is a natural way to improve the quality of life for your horse, without pharmaceutical drugs, stimulants or even needles, entering your horse's body.

LifeWave also offers a complete product line of homeopathic, self-adhesive patches for people. To learn more, please visit www.lifewave.com.
