Deep Oscillation originated in Germany in 2007, using the Hivamat technology to create low frequencies of gentle electrostatic impulses that "knead" your skins tissues by attracting and releasing it. Oscillation treatment penetrates 8-12cm into your skin’s tissue, creating a deep tissue effect as well localized swelling.
Deep Oscillation effectiveness is known to be more effective and with quicker results than a standard manual lymphatic drainage massage. It has been proven to remove lymph fluid build up and protein solid, which helps to boost your tissues natural healing process.
Deep Oscillation is gentle enough to use the day after surgery to move the swelling and reduce acute and long-term pain.
Often months after a knee surgery swelling is a chronic problem, leaving the patient with limited options for treatment. Oscillation will move even long term fluid within minutes.
Deep Oscillation has been proven to alleviate symptoms and increase functional improvement in women with lymphoedma following breast surgery. Shoulder and neck impairment can be a complication, leaving women in pain and frustrated during an already difficult time in their lives.
MLD is a highly specialized form of massage, which uses light, rhythmical, very precise hand movements, pressures and sequences to influence the direction and speed of lymphatic flow, and requires the therapist to develop a great degree of skill.
The lymphatic system is a complex system, effecting circulatory, urinary, and plays a major role in immunity. It facilitates waste removal at a cellular level, assisting nutrients and oxygen to cells.
We have between 600 and 800 lymph notes that lack a "pump of their own" like the heart and respiratory. It relies on the action muscle movement, which is why they will give surgery patients stockings for their legs.
MLD, and Deep Oscillation will manually move this fluid through the body.
Pain Relief: Based on the Gate Theory, pain and touch receptors of the central nervous system share the same pathway. Simply put: repetitive touch can override pain receptors.
