Matrix Therapy Products
Your Source for Equine Therapeutic Tools
By Deborah Powell
Maintain – Heal - Protect.
This has been our motto at Matrix Therapy Products for the past 20 years as we’ve researched, developed, tested, and shared therapy tools and how to use them to help horses.
All the devices and products we offer are beneficial to the body, focusing on promoting natural healing and enhancing the health of the tissue. We have developed treatment protocols that address the whole horse as well as specific issues and ailments, with the principle of protecting the fascia while enhancing the healing process, with the end result being a sound and healthy horse.
It all started with the magic of microcurrent therapy, which has advanced to today’s pocket-sized Matrix Best-Vet III. This device has a feature called advanced biofeedback, which during a treatment alerts the user to problem areas while simultaneously treating the horse with microcurrent (low level electrical stimulation). Using the Matrix Best-Vet III helps the user not only confirm soreness, but further traces the root of the issue. And for additional options, it can be connected to an accessory such as the back pad and leg wraps for a hands-free all-body treatment.

To help horse owners get started or to deepen their knowledge, we’ve published an in-depth working manual called MicroCurrent for Horses, and other vital therapies you should know by Deborah Powell. We also offer remote training and hands-on classes for microcurrent and other therapy modalities. Recently, we collaborated with an experienced equine bodyworker to create in-person, hands-on courses where horse people learn how to achieve total body symmetry in the horse using gentle tension-releasing techniques.
Our mix-and-match collection of therapy tools aims to foster the body to be strong and resilient. Regular treatments help maintain health and protect against injuries, and when injuries do happen we call the veterinarian if needed as we roll up our sleeves and put our hands and therapeutic tools to work.
