"This facility is amazing! I cannot say enough good things about it and the owners Ron and Jennifer. They have taken great care to consider every detail to ensure you have the best possible experience. I highly recommend this facility! I absolutely love this place. One of my dogs became extremely ill earlier this year and had to receive multiple blood transfusions and major surgery to remove part of her intestines in Columbia this year. This makes her extremely sensitive to medication and we cannot always give it to her because it can cause her to bleed. She recently had been fighting and ear infection and we were struggling to get rid of it. We took her to the salt room and it was amazing. It really helped her ears and she loved it not to mention how relaxed it made her. I loved it as well it really helped to clear my sinuses. I would highly recommend this treatment. My dog cannot wait to go back!" - Audrey Venute
"Would highly recommend the Salt Room to anyone that has a horse with COPD, heaves, asthma, and more! I have a gelding that needs constant bute and supplements to get by during the fall/winter months. He will have horrible breathing, coughing, and then get a snotty nose off and on. We pulled him off everything and started the Salt Room as a last ditch effort before starting steroids. Clients aren’t saying ‘poor Hemi, his coughing is breaking my heart, etc’. The coughing has stopped. No runny nose. Still is a bit of a belly breather and only wheezes on occasion. We’ve only done a few treatments so far. Can’t wait to see how much better he gets." - Brandi Manley

"After our mare Cricket sustained an injury to both her front pectoral muscles, we took her to JRs for a 3 week course of treatment. Cricket was in a fair amount of pain, she was short strided on both front feet and could not turn in either direction without a significant amount of discomfort. Jennifer started a course of therapy with the 3B cold Laser, Massage and the Niagra Equissage. We saw a significant change in her gait and range of motion in just seven days of treatment. She continued wiht treatment for the remainder of her stay. When we picked her up, Jennifer showed me how to keep up with her massages, she also had a detailed print out of the feeds she suggested to help with inflammation and the contact numbers to purchase those supplements. Cricket looked and felt amazing. Jennifer became a friend and someone we know we can trust with our horses. Cricket followed her around like a puppy dog all over the pasture. I highly recommend JRs Equine Retreat!" - Sarah Powell Lewis Update: One month after treatment, Cricket went to a rodeo and brought home a buckle.
