About Nikki Thurston

 

Why do I use Deep Oscillation?

Nearly four years ago, I developed secondary Lymphoedema in my right arm, which was eight weeks after breast cancer treatment finished. I was on the look out for a manageable solution and being a massage therapist myself, I tried all sorts of massage, before being introduced to Deep Oscillation. 

It made such a difference, even after one treatment and it felt so good in application. 

I contacted PhysioPod, Julie was brilliant and very helpful in assisting me as to which machine would be most beneficial for my needs.  I have often said - 'if it wasn’t for Physiopod, I would not be working today'. With such a great find, I didn’t want to keep it to myself and so I started to include it in my treatments.  

It was the discovery of Deep Oscillation that led me to train in manual lymphatic drainage and the two really do complement each other beautifully. I am now fully qualified in Vodder MLD DLT and so I am able to work on others with compromised lymphatic systems. I have been very happy to help other Lymphoedema sufferers, reducing volume and associated pain. I have mostly worked on lower limbs; helping one lady in her eighties and another in her sixties. One Lymphoedema client started with me twice a week for four weeks and has now dropped to every three weeks for maintenance;  such were the results achieved, she is also doing the prescribed exercises at home I gave her.

I used it on a lady with MS prior to MLD and again great results. For back and neck pain, it works quickly and it has helped with stiffness and pain in arthritis.  For Golfers who have developed Morton's Neuroma it has been beneficial in reducing pain enough to enable play and has delayed the inevitable operation for a golfer in his eighties.

I now include Deep Oscillation in my Rejuvenating Facials and clients love it! When I had a fall recently, I used it to clear up the bruising on two black eyes and I managed to get my make-up looking reasonable within just a week.  Needless to say, I have been much more careful on my bicycle since!

Patient Testimonial

 

'Nikki was recommended to me by a friend. I had a sore neck and after chatting to Nikki she suggested trying Deep Oscillation and MLD to treat my neck. Nikki made me feel at ease as she explained the treatment and what she was doing as she did it.  After a course of 6 treatments I had reduced pain in my neck and less aching muscles.  The treatment was extremely relaxing at the time and has definitely made a difference. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nikki's services.'
