About Mikayla


 Mikayla's passion for horses started at the very young age of 2 when she started learning how to ride on her families horse farm. She grew up in Verona, New York riding hunt seat and eventing with her OTTB Alley.

About Mikayla

Mikayla graduated from Vernon-Verona-Sherrill High School and continued her education at SUNY Morrisville earning her degree with an Associate in Applied Science (Equine Science and Management) in 2016 and her Bachelor of Technology in Equine Science (concentration in Equine Rehabilitation) in 2018.  She completed a 15 week internship with Leatherstocking Veterinary Group in 2018 learning about medications, diagnostics of equine lameness's and how to treat them. After graduation Mikayla accepted a position with the Leatherstocking group as a Veterinary Assistant at The Marcy Veterinary Clinic. Mikayla continues to learn about the health and wellness of animals of all sizes including vaccines, surgery and preventatives for dogs and cats. She has also been able to work with dogs at their canine rehabilitation facility. 

In 2018 she started the foundation of her business, Champion's Heart. With the help of Dr. Patricia Laino's Entrepreneurs Bootcamp and the Womens Business Center of New York, Mikayla was able to take the Champion's Heart dream and turn it into a reality. Mikayla was then able to take Pulse Equines PEMF certification course and become level 1 & 2 certified to perform PEMF therapy on horses, dogs and people. 

In Mikayla's free time she enjoy's traveling, hiking, camping with her dogs Roxy, Syra and Bella and riding her OTTB Alley.


What is PEMF Therapy


What does PEMF do?

  •  Enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself
  • Putting it simply, PEMF is a “Massage for Cell Membranes.”
  • PEMF stands for “Pulsed Electromagnetic Field” Therapy. A PEMF device creates a gently pulsing electromagnetic field which restores health of the body at a cellular level by stimulating cell metabolism.

How the PEMF machine works

  •  The PEMF machine creates a series of safe, pulsing electromagnetic fields which travel from the main unit through the loop
  • When the loop is placed on the body the electromagnetic field pulses ON and OFF making a soft clicking sound. 
  • ON pulses: cells are exercised
  • OFF pulses: Cells are relaxed and “recharged”
  • As the cells recharge they are returned to optimal health

Mechanism of Action

  • All cells have a resting membrane potential: Membranes are selectively permeable
  • When cells are damaged, the membrane potential becomes less than normal: Reduces metabolism and hinders the cells ability to absorb oxygen and nutrition, release wastes toxins and ultimately results in the loss of energy, increase in pain, inflammation, swelling and disease. 
  • PEMF restores the membrane potential to normal

Living cells

  • Generate natural electrical charge through the movement of ions in and out of cell membranes.
  • Any change to the cell such as injury, toxicity or oxygen/ nutrient deficiency alters ion movement and the charge of the cell membrane changes

Causes of cell injury

  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Physical Agents: trauma such as sprains, strains, fractures. Temperature extremes, sudden changes in atmospheric pressure, radiation and electric shock
  • Chemical agents and drugs
  • Infectious agents
  • Immunologic Reactions
  • Genetic derangement
  • Nutritional imbalances

Electromagnetic fields in the body

  •  The body is composed of chemical and electrical fields. 
  • We are only as healthy as the cells in our own bodies environment
  • We suffer from energy loss due to stress, environmental pollution, concrete, metal alloys, paved roads, cell phones, microwaves, computer networks, ect..
  • Because of this our bodily cells do not function properly making us more susceptible to illness, loss of membrane integrity, compromised immunity and depression.


How does PEMF help animals

 “The secret to improved performance, range of motion, speed and strength”

  • Creates a response like Fine-tuning the whole body
  • Increased blood oxygen and lymphatic systems: reduces pain, inflammation and promotes healing
  • Deep penetration, relieving stimulation but gentle for areas which are to sore to manually massage
  • Improves muscle energy: muscles can work harder and longer and recover more quickly after a workout
  • Assists to dilate arteries and capillaries increasing circulation

How PEMF helps relieve pain

  • Pain is transmitted through nerve fibers in our skin, blood, vessels and muscles. Which in turn transmits to larger nerves and eventually travels to the spinal cord and brain. Once a nerve fiber is irritated, it becomes more easily stimulated

  • Studies have shown that magnetic fields decrease the firing of nerves which can help to reduce swelling of nerve fibers and help damaged nerves to recover.
  • Pain relief from PEMF has been found in animals and humans, to be equivalent to 10mg of morphine
  • Often pain relief comes from reducing swelling locally rather than by directly acting on the pain fibers.

Physiological Effects

  • Increased circulation: Abnormally charged red blood cells (RBC) have a tendency to "stick" together which impaired/ slows circulation. Poor circulation will impair healing and creates "unhealthy" cells. Using PEMF to restore the charge to the cells, eliminates this by improving circulation which allows tissues to receive proper nutrition and oxygen which is also important for waste removal. In- turn reduces swelling and improves tissue healing.
  • Enhanced muscle function: PEMF assists cells in allowing energy into the muscles for contractions.
  • Decreased inflammation: Inflammation can be necessary and beneficial, but often persists longer than necessary and results in chronic inflammation. 
  • Stress reduction: Which is easier to see in humans. Magnetic fields have stress and anxiety reducing effects, minimizing the effects stress has on the body.
  • Bone Healing: PEMF has been found to improve bone regeneration, whether bones were damaged by surgery, ingery or disease. PEMF speeds the healing process by 1/3 to 1/2 the normal time. PEMF heals bones from the outside first.
  • Improved blood oxygenation: PEMF helps with extraction of oxygen from the air and aids in transportation through circulation. Oxygenation of tissues in then increased by 200%

Why choose PEMF over anything else

  •  PEMF treatments are Non-Invasive
  • No sedation is needed
  • No drugs
  • No negative side effects
  • Results are usually noticeable after the first treatment!
  • PEMF can actually show where your horse is sore, while simultaneously providing relief.
  • Electromagnetic field effects only the cells that have a low level of charge, the damaged cells are the only ones that show pulsing or twitching.

Indications to use PEMF therapy

  • Back pain
  • Trigger points
  • Muscle soreness/ fatigue
  • Patellar ligament desmitis
  • Carpal pain
  • Capped hocks and elbows
  • Osteoarthritis and synovitis (stifle, fetlock, pasterns, coffin joint, poll)
  • Bucked shins
  • Bruised soles and abscesses
  • White line disease
  • Tendonitis
  • Suspensory desmitis
  • Sesamoiditis
  • Navicular syndrome and navicular bursitis
  • Nuchal ligament calcification
  • Regular maintenance and cell conditioning

Pre- Cautions

  • Do NOT use if horse has implanted electronic devices
  • Do NOT use during pregnancy
