The following is taken (with thanks to LBI) from Services:
This therapy is used in the London Breast Institute for the treatment and management of Lymphoedema, Lipoedema and Lipo-Lymphoedema. The gentle, yet effective, electrostatic impulses are delivered through gloved hands or applicators and are clinically proven to permeate an 8cm depth, impacting all tissue layers; including the connective tissue. Excess biological matter and abnormal lymph fluid build up are flushed out, resulting in the reduction of swelling and pain, and promoting a better range of movement. DEEP OSCILLATION® is especially effective on stubborn fibrosis and can be used in the pre-operative stage to improve micro-circulation and prepare tissue for incision. It can also be used in the early post-operative stage to boost the rehabilitation process, thereby promoting a dynamic wound healing with smoother and less resultant scar tissue.
Clinically proven effects and benefits are:
- Anti-Fibrotic, Anti-Inflammatory, Detoxifying effect
- Improvement of muscle tone, mobility, tissue quality, and trophicity
- Reduction in bruising, haematoma, oedema, pain, skin irritation
- Relaxation of muscles and stimulation of a dynamic wound healing.
With DEEP OSCILLATION®Therapy, swellings and redness can all be relieved considerably faster following surgical procedures and the therapy can be used post-operatively almost immediately to facilitate faster healing. Pain can also be stopped over a sustained period. Faster regeneration following the surgery also in cases of trauma and neurological indications.
Please check with therapist the contra-indications for use.
