Lymphoedema: The Deep Oscillation Personal Has Changed My Life
Mrs H initially hired a Deep Oscillation Personal for six weeks between 4th November and 10th December 2020, thereafter extending the hire for a further four weeks. Mrs H was so impressed with the ease of use of the device and effectiveness, she made the decision to buy.
Mrs H chose the Deep Oscillation Personal Basic Device and has been applying the therapy with two x 9.5 cm oscillator heads either side of the lower limb in the direction of lymphatic flow.
Mrs H wrote on 23rd March 2021:
"I have now been using deep oscillation therapy for my leg Lymphoedema for over 4 months and it has changed my life.
Having experienced a number of life-changing events in parallel, depression resulted. However, regular Deep Oscillation treatment has enabled me to get on my exercise bike daily to perform 'High Intensity Interval Training' - this has ensured I have endorphins to help me remain positive.
Throughout the whole process of learning how to get the best use out of my machine, Julie has been there every step of the way. She is patient, helpful and friendly and has an enormous amount of knowledge and experience, and because she has been able to explain things in simple terms, she has made the whole process so much easier. Thank you so much Julie!"

DEEP OSCILLATION THERAPY
Deep Oscillation Electrostatic Drainage (DOT) – is a patented electrostatic lymphatic massage therapy, clinically proven and peer reviewed.
The DOT Personal Unit is treatment that is delivered through light vinyl gloves to another or via special oscillator applications in self treatment. This enables the user in self-management to reduce swelling, pain and can give a feeling of wellbeing. The Personal Unit has a Lymphoedema setting but can also be used successfully in many fields of application including arthritis and fibromyalgia.
The DOT can reduce pain, help with fibrosis, and scar tissue. The treatment is gentle, and the relaxing vibrations can penetrate to a depth of 8 cm this includes all tissue layers including the connective tissue.
The beauty of the Personal Unit is that it is portable so you can take it with you wherever you go.
