DEEP OSCILLATIONĀ® Therapy (DOT)

Newly acquired for use in the Clinic is the Hivamat DEEP OSCILLATIONĀ® Therapy (DOT) device. This is being used in the Clinic for conditions such as; Lymphoedema and Lipoedema, Fibromylagia and I am also using for Pre and Post Surgery to aid in recovery.

Clinically proven DEEP OSCILLATIONĀ® electrostatic lymphatic drainage permeates an 8 cm depth without any pressure being applied, making it ideal in early in the post operative healing process

  • DOT significantly reduces pain, swelling and inflammation, improving range of motion and function. Pre and post operative therapy with deep oscillation shortens recovery time with smoother and less resultant scar tissue
  • Chronic conditions (including scar tissue) respond well to this therapy
  • DOT will be used in conjunction with MLD as part of your treatment protocols where appropriate
  • The Therapist and the Client and connected to the DOT device. The Therapist will apply treatment via the use of vinyl gloves being applied directly on the patients skin. Intrigued? Book in a Treatment!

    Feedback I am getting is;
    “it’s so relaxing”, “I didn’t expect it to be so effective” and “I really like this therapy!”

  • Highly effective in reducing pain
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Effective in reabsorbing oedema (swelling)
  • Encouraging wounds to heal
  • Fibrosis Reduction
  • Improving trophicity
  • Rubor reduction (haematoma/bruising)
  • Detoxification
  • Improving quality of tissue
  • How does it work?

    During DEEP OSCILLATIONĀ® therapy the therapist simply wears a pair of light vinyl gloves and uses their normal massage techniques to deliver low frequency, intermittent, electrostatic waves to the tissue layers, permeating a depth of 8 cm through skin, subcutaneous fat, muscles, blood and lymph vessels with proven effects in the connective tissue. DEEP OSCILLATIONĀ® therapy breaks down excess inflammatory matter which is gently flushed into the lymph system for removal, along with any abnormal fluid build up DEEP OSCILLATIONĀ® therapy does not cause heat or electrical stimulation, and is safe over pins and plates.

    It is very important to realise that DEEP OSCILLATIONĀ® therapy does not heat or electrically stimulate the tissue like the thermal setting of Ultrasound or stimulate in the same way as Tens. Part of the patent of DEEP OSCILLATIONĀ® therapy involves an active discharge device. The circuit stops and starts and so can be safely used throughout the day.
