Thumper Equine Professional Horse Massager
Thumper Equine Professional Horse Massager has the same design and features as the Maxi Pro Variable Power, but more powerful, and the best machine for athletes and people who want a deeper massage. Thumper Equine Professional Horse Massager is the only massager for your horses, pets and livestock. Thumper Equine Professional Horse Massager is the Thumper model that is used by professional sports teams, and in professional equine training and competition. Horse trainers have discovered what doctors, chiropractors and professional athletes have known for years, that Thumper works.
The Thumper was designed by a chiropractor to use on his patients and has proven just as effective on equines. Thumper has been used with remarkable success on racehorses, hunter/jumpers, rodeo and reining horses. Dressage horses, 3-day event horses, professional cutting horses, polo ponies, draft horses and chuck wagon teams. Even if your horse is not an athlete, Thumper is great for horses that don't get enough exercise or those who just need some pampering. It also has proven to be very successful for ease of delivery of foaling mares.
Thumper is ideal for horses in training or competition, recovering from an injury and those who are nervous or "sour". Thumper relieves muscle aches and relaxes and improves the attitude of difficult horses. Your horse will enjoy being massaged , and both you and your horse will benefit from the results.
The areas shown below are the first to break down on a horse during a strenuous activity and are the root of most lameness problems. Most injuries in horses are a result of repeated stress and overuse. A physically fit horse has very strong, tight muscles that naturally produce extreme resistance. Keeping these muscles relaxed and working freely will enable your horse to preform at its best. A daily maintenance program will includes Thumper massages will help prevent muscles injuries from developing while allowing your horse to realize its full potential.
Why massage is good for your horse:
- Massage increases blood supply and nutrition to the muscles which helps prevent the buildup of harmful "fatigue" products resulting from strenuous exercise or injury.
- Massage speeds up the recovery process, dramatically reducing recovery time by half.
- Massage dilates blood vessels, improving circulation and relieving congestion throughout body.
- Massage improves circulation and nutrition of joints, and hastens the elimination of harmful deposits. It helps lessen inflammation and swelling in joints and so alleviates pain.
- Massage improves muscle tone.
- Massage can compensate, in part, for lack of exercise and muscular contraction in horses who because of injury, illness, or age are forced to remain inactive.
Take it from the pros. Thumper is the first choice of chiropractors, massage therapists and professional athletes in treating muscle aches and tension. In fact, Thumper massagers are used by over 200,000 professionals worldwide.
Here's why: You feel a Thumper massage throughout your body, not just on the surface of your skin.
How Thumper Massagers are different...
Thumpers are percussive.
Thumpers offer steady, comfortable pulsations that penetrate through all the muscle layers even the thickest muscles releasing tension and fatigue. Thumpers do not vibrate.
Thumpers are direct drive. The energy of the motor is sent efficiently and directly into the muscle you wish to massage. You will not feel your whole body "shaking" while using Thumper Massagers.
Thumpers are dynamically balanced. The massage energy does not "creep" back to the handle or casing of the massager. No kickback to your hands or casing.
Thumpers are strong. No mistaking these models with Far East imports. Thumpers are reliable, as well as built to last and to sustain professional use.
Thumpers offer a deep tissue massage with no work. Typical vibrators skim over the skin surface and require added pressure to get deeper. Thumper's perpendicular "up & down" action travels into the muscle 1/4 inch deep, 28 times per second - a form of "trigger point" effect which is diminished if extra pressure is applied. Just "park" it. Thumpers do the work, not you!
Thumpers are precision built in Canada. Developed by professionals who know and understand massage. With thirty years of massage manufacturing experience, Thumper offers 2 years warranty. All Thumper's units are assembled by hand and tested thoroughly before leaving Thumper's factory.
Thumpers work well on both thick and thin muscles. Thumpers are fully adjustable to the person or body part you wish to massage.
Thumper designs, manufactures and distributes professional quality, massage equipment. Each product is ingeniously designed and meticulously built in Canada. For more than 30 years Thumper Massager Inc. has been developing massage products that make people feel good. Thumper products have received overwhelming positive response from doctors to massage therapists, from chiropractors to physiotherapists and from conditioning coaches and fitness trainers to professional athletes and home users. All Thumper products fit perfectly into the health- and wellness-conscious lifestyles of today.
Question: Does Thumper pinch like some other vibrators?
Answer: No, Thumper does not pinch when used correctly. Do not press down, stroke, or dig with additional weight.
Question: Can Thumper be used with Massage Oils or Lotions?
Answer: Do not use oils or lotions with Thumper. The oil or lotion may chemically react with the plastic and cause deterioration.
Question: Is there any maintenance required for Thumper?
Answer: No. Thumper is maintenance free, constructed with permanently lubricated, sealed ball bearings. No additional lubrication is necessary.
Question: Why does the Thumper get warm?
Answer: Although Thumper is designed for continuous use, with extended use it is normal for the plastic shell or housing to get warm. If the temperature does exceed normal limits, Temperature Overload Protection may activate, shutting the machine down. You will need to let it cool before continuing use.
Question: How do I clean Thumper?
Answer: If the external surfaces become soiled, wipe clean with a cloth dampened with a mild soap.
Question: How does Thumper compare to other massagers on the market?
Answer: Thumper is the only massager that goes after muscle tension with percussive action. Ordinary massagers exert their force in a horizontal direction and do nothing more than "rub" your skin. Thumper directs the action of its anatomically positioned massage spheres vertically-downwards into your muscles. You feel Thumper throughout your body, not just on the skin surface.
Question: Does Thumper have attachments?
Answer: No attachments are needed with Thumper. Its massage spheres are positioned to let you treat all areas effectively.
Question: Does Thumper Itch?
Answer: Because Thumper does not "rub" the skin, itching does not usually occur. Itching may appear, however, under the following conditions:
- If one has poor circulation.
- If irritable material or clothing is used between Thumper and the skin (Ex. Synthetic materials).
- If left in one spot too long (this is due to increased circulation).
- If the relative humidity of the atmosphere is quite low.
Question: Does Thumper 'kickback' energy/vibration to the handle?
Answer: Thumper has very little 'kickback' to the operator. Not like many other vibrators.
Question: What can I do if I find Thumper uncomfortable on one area?
Answer: Thumper was designed to be strong and effective with all muscle groups. For sensitive areas, place a folded towel between Thumper and the area being massaged.
Question: Why Thumper is more expensive than other models?
Answer: The use of quality components, hand made units, strict quality control and built to sustain professional use are some of the reasons why Thumper is a premium price product.
Question: Why does Thumper not have the bells and whistles?
Answer: Simply, Thumper works and its technology is based on proven deep muscle massage techniques developed over 30 years. The bells and whistles may look like you are getting more "features" but they do not work to provide a better massage. Our investment in the product is on those components that directly improve the massage result and the quality and longevity of the product. We do not compromise with ineffective features.
Question: Who should use Thumper?
Answer : Anyone who:
- Stands/sits all day at their job.
- Spends a lot of time driving.
- Has new or chronic aches or pains.
- Has tension/stress.
- Plays sports/exercises frequently.
- Wants to feel good!
Question: How should I choose a massager?
Answer: Identify your needs. For what reasons do you need a massager, do you have any pain? Do you need to relax? Are you going to use the unit on a regular basis? How many people will be using the unit? Are you looking to use your massager in the years to come?
The answer to these questions will help you to decide if you need a strong, reliable unit, high quality massager as oppose to a "toy". Enjoy your massage experience!
