About Our Spas

ECB EQUINE SPA is headquartered in both the USA and Europe and currently has over 500 units in operation across the world. With health and safety as our top priority, ECB has been refining its superior products for both the equine and human athlete since the inception of the company in 1998.

Cold Salt Hydrotherapy is used to treat and prevent a multitude of injuries in 35°F / 2°C saltwater.  The spa has successfully addressed virtually all lower leg injuries.  Treatment temperature alone induces a massive rush of blood and circulation which otherwise would not be present. This drug free therapy can be used for injury prevention and also to increase mobility and reduce swelling in the limbs before and after competitive events and training.

The ECB Equine Spais a self-contained unit holding 530 gal / 2000 liters of saltwater that can be used for up to 3,000 treatments. Some ECB clients treat over 20 horses daily.  Rehabilitation facilities can also expect additional revenue relating to an increase in stable income.

Evan Hunt, DVM is considered the world’s leading expert on cold salt hydrotherapy.  ECB is greatly honored to have an exclusive association with Professor Hunt.  With the purchase of an ECB spa, Professor Hunt is available for consultation and advice, free of charge, to ECB clientele.

Professor Evan Hunt did the initial research into the development of cold salt hydrotherapy. His work has been accredited by worldwide professionals and today he works alongside ECB in the constant development of the ECB Spa. He also provides backup for clients of ECB by using his expertise and knowledge to aid in injury diagnosis and treatment. After years of working within rehabilitation with various units on the market, Evan will only provide his support and backup to the ECB spa.

Upon purchase of the spa, your ECB representative will forward a complete treatment regime manual (formulated by Professor Hunt) describing the types of injuries and the treatment parameters to address them. Please keep in mind that you can also email or speak with Professor Hunt personally. He will not give professional advise to anyone owning any other spa brand.

Tendon injuries unfortunately come with performance horses, be it racing, eventing, showjumping or polo. These have traditionally taken a long time to respond and in the first cases of Spa use I saw, I couldn’t believe the rate of recovery with results I hadn’t previously achieved throughout my 35 years of veterinary experience.
Trainers who have used the Spa on a regular basis have quickly established that there is a major cost benefit in terms of keeping horses competing right through their training period.
