Trot horses at elite level run faster after Fascias treatment
Since its introduction in 2013, fascia treatment of horses has produced fantastic results. Trotters run faster and get fewer injuries – but above all they love the treatment.

In the post Hans, CEO of Atlasbalans and Camilla, teacher at Atlasbalans, are located outside Enköping at Furuby farm on one of Sweden’s best trotting stalls called Stall Zett to fascia treat their trotting horses. Fascia is a new field of research and although there are many fascinating studies and treatment cases, it is mainly on racehorses that you can see measurable results.
Hans means that in general, you usually treat muscles on the horse, but with the machine you can treat much longer strokes and larger areas (the fascia). Camilla shows in the video how she treats one of the trotting horses. She believes that both horses and dogs are quite nice to treat because they often show what is nice and not nice. “When the horse chews and yawns, that’s when you know you’re doing right,” Camilla says.
Most people probably agree and understand that football players need regular massage, but since not everyone makes that connection with horses, it can cause the horse to perform bad and feel ill. But those who have understood it, and treat their horse regularly usually get a horse that is more durable.
If the fascia is soft and supple in its soft parts, the coordinate and balance of the horse will improve. They simply get better overall, because they get the circulation going, they get smoother and then they also become more alert. Hans says that from the beginning when we started treating horses, especially trotting horses, which are quite locked in the back of the pelvis, we thought that they might be worse. But, on the contrary, the more moving they became, the better they became. The great thing about horses is that there is no placebo, and therefore you can get very good results. Those who have also realized how to take good care of the horse’s movement apparatus also have a lot of money to make.
What is unique about treating the machine is that it pulsates all the time, in line with the microcirculation found in the tissue. This in turn causes it to stimulate the horse’s tissues, such as the connective tissue, muscles and tendons. What you really do is that, because it pulses all the time, and then that pulse is quite.
In the video we can clearly see how the horse starts to release the tension by stretching and moving the head and chewing. The machine has good potential to release voltage quickly. An example is that you can have an incredibly fast effect on the horse’s “engine” in the rear, because there you can get the psoas muscle to release quite quickly and then you get much better mobility quickly.
Horses and humans work under the same principles, but on the other hand, it is easier to treat horses for horses to let go of things, which can be seen in how the horse rules the video. That is, they stretch out and say that “this is nice this is good”. Maybe we think that people also think when we get treatment, but we humans are not as easy to release things as horses, says Hans.
