You’ve probably heard of Cryotherapy or cold therapy, it’s been the latest craze in wellness and spa centres, where a body is exposed to cold temperatures for several minutes, resulting in several health benefits.
Since the love for horses and racing is highly prominent in Dubai, REVIVE set-up an equally beneficial cryotherapy but for horses. Equine Cryotherapy is here, and it’s already becoming the norm in the equestrian world.
In this week’s episode of DUBAI WORKS, Lovin Dubai spoke to Luka Jurkovic, who discussed the process behind Cryotherapy, as a specific form of muscle therapy, and how REVIVE has adapted this innovative technique as a treatment for horses.

Cryotherapy helps horses with pain relieving effects, and performance
Revive’s General Manager, Luka Jurkovic, who was also an ex-car race engineer and professional driver realised that what worked for human athletes could also work for racehorses.
Some of the benefits of Cryotherapy include helping reduce swelling, inflammation and muscle spasm for competition horses. Recovery time for racehorses are also faster, giving time to improve strength and speed because the therapy raises adrenaline, testosterone and endorphin levels.
