COMPRESSION HOOD & COMPRESSION HOOD WITH EARS
Hidez compression hoods apply compression to acupressure points, the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and endorphin release points in the horse's head and poll. Use of the Hidez compression hood increases the blood circulation in the horse's
head allowing more red and white blood cells, oxygen, vitamins and minerals to
reach this area. The photo (insert) shows the location of acupressure points GV 24 (governing vessel 24), Yin Tang plus the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Massage or compression to these locations will relax and calm the horse. GV 24 (governing vessel 24) is located in the middle of the horses head at the bottom of the forelock (as marked). Yin Tang is located midway between the horses eyes (as marked). The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is located midway between the outside corner of the eye and base of the ear on both sides of the horse's head (as marked). This TMJ ioint is a very complex area of many connecting parts, incorporating a wide variety of tissues including bone, articular cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscles, nerves, salivary glands and blood vessels. This joint has the vital and challenging task of communicating with the rider via the bit.
