We are simply pleased that you have shown an interest in this growing field in the equine industry. Please select the black box to the right for more information on our upcoming American Association of Equine Therapists and Technicians Educational Conferences. What follows are the 7 Most Frequently Asked Questions:
+ 1. What kind of earnings can one expect as an EquiPulse PEMF Technician?
This depends upon how many hours a week you are willing to work. Generally, EquiPulse PEMF Technicians will charge between $50.00 per 20 to 30 minute session. Some are charging upwards of $95.00 for a 30 minute therapy session. Determining your "Entry Rate" is crucial in the development of your overall revenue strategy. As an example, here are number of variables to consider such as: -- How often is the horse being treated, once a week or once a month? -- Is the session just 20 munties or does the owner want the whole horse treated, which can take upwards of an hour or more. -- How many horses at the stable's or barn's location are you treating? The more horses, the better pricing per horse. -- How far do you have to travel for each appointment? -- Is your client willing to pre-purchase a package of sessions, thereby commitiing to a regular schedule sessions with you?
This is just one aspect of how our company's 12 year experience with 100's of Technicians will be tremendously beneficial to the new Technician.
+ 2. Must an individual be licensed as a human physical therapist before being certified as an Equine Care Specialist?
No. At present there are no state regulations governing the certification of equine therapists. This does not mean that there may not be such regulations in the future. Recognized leaders in the development of these various therapies will undoubtedly play a role in the establishment of regulatory guidelines when, and if the day of state by state regulation should arrive. Any such future regulation would be based on the principles of human physical therapy.
+ 3. What qualifications or background are considered important for success as an EquiPulse PEMF Technician?
The most important qualification for success as an EquiPulse PEMF Technician is a love of animals, empathy for suffering animals, and a sincere desire to help alleviate that suffering. While it would be preferable to have a background in some type of therapy, it is not mandatory. Our Technician training uses innovative treatment protocols and techniques that allow the both licensed medical professionals and the non-licensed Technician to obtain remarkable results by identifying and treating humans and animals for soreness and injury at a very low intensity in addition to utilizing higher intensities for deeper penetration, when necessary. These techniques are on the leading edge of non-invasive and drug-free healing modalities.
+4. How does a non-licensed Technician appropriately participate in the field of Equine Care?
All our new and existing EquiPulse PEMF Technicians, who are NOT licensed by a State Veterinary Board, must be reminded that diagnosis and prescribing are the veterinarian's domain and that our Technicians have a supportive role in the process of injury prevention and recovery. Any Equine Technician is valuable in both recovery from, and prevention of, injury and debility. Utilizing the EquiPulse will enhance the body's natural ability to heal, the the technician application techniques assist and supports the whole body.
+5. What about other Equine Therapies?
There are many non-invasive techniques that can stimulate healing without the use of drugs. Our most successful non-licensed EquiPulse PEMF Technicians are those who take every possible step to enhance their knowledge and education in the practice areas of equine physiotherapy and bio-mechanics. We've included an abundance of resources and recommended reading for the new Technician. While several of the training videos are produced with the licensed Vet in mind, it is important for any non-licensed Technician to understand the reasoning and method for introducing drugs and other therapies the equine medical community prescribes.
