Kate John MLD DLT Lymphoedema Practitioner Reflects On Deep Oscillation

By Mary Fickling on Jul 12 2018. "Since using the Deep Oscillation Personal Sports and with added card for Aesthetic indications, I have found it to be extremely beneficial. Of course, I was expecting, hoping, it to help with the break up/softening of fibrotic tissue, as most of the patients have lymphoedema or are post liposuction and I've not been disappointed. My surprise has been in the pain relieving benefits!!

I'm excited to help patients in other ways" Kate John, 1st August 2018
