Deep Oscillation

Deep Oscillation Therapy is an internationally recognized German technology, widely used by healthcare professionals in Germany and the rest of Europe, for the treatment of lymphoedema other conditions. It is combined with specific Manual Lymph Drainage techniques (Dr. Vodder method) Applied with minimal or no pressure, making the treatment totally painless. It is ideal after all types of surgery as it stimulates tissue healing and lymph flow. The skin and deeper tissues are attracted and released up to 250 times per second, causing a vibration effect. This creates a thorough but gentle kneading to a depth of approximately 8 to 12 cm, stirring up protein solids, inflammatory by-products and lymph fluids, and the treatment then assists in their removal.

Fundamental Concepts

DEEP OSCILLATION is a unique, patented treatment method. Its special structure allows you to create biologically effective oscillations in the treated tissue using electrostatic attraction and friction. In contrast to other therapies, these pleasant oscillations have a gentle and deep-acting effect on all tissue components, including skin, connective tissue, muscles, blood and lymph vessels.

The following physiological effects of DEEP OSCILLATION® are clinically proven:

  • Highly effective in reducing pain
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Effective in reabsorbing oedema
  • Promotes wound healing
  • Anti-fibrotic
  • Improves the trophicity
  • Rubor reduction
  • Detoxification
  • Improves the quality of the tissue

During DEEP OSCILLATION® 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 OSCILLATION® therapy breaks down excess inflammatory matter which is gently flushed into the lymph system for removal, along with any abnormal fluid build up DEEP OSCILLATION® therapy does not cause heat or electrical stimulation, and is safe over pins and plates.

Clinical Effects

In contrast to externally applied, mechanical forms of therapy, (e.g. vibration), the therapy effect of DEEP OSCILLATION® takes place in the tissue itself and works through the entire depth of the tissue layers (skin, connective tissue, subcutaneous fat, muscles, blood and lymph vessels)

This causes DEEP OSCILLATION® to be especially gentle and makes it an unmatched treatment alternative for fresh trauma, postoperative, for acute pain and in the area of open wounds. Proof was established in representative studies of the following significant effects of DEEP OSCILLATION®:

Encouraging wounds to heal
DEEP OSCILLATION® helps in speeding up and improving wound healing processes. Through the oedema-reducing and anti inflammatory effect, the local metabolic elimination and alimentation is improved in all tissue layers, whereby tissue regeneration and wound closure are encouraged on many levels. This is documented by the significant improvement in planimetric and biochemical parameters of the wound healing.
Pain Reduction
DEEP OSCILLATION® alleviates pain by reallocating and flushing out pain transmitting and mediating substances. It suppresses inflammation and oedema induced pain by restricting pro inflammatory cell movement to the damaged area, by reducing the inflammatory mediator release, and by oedema reduction.
In chronic pain syndromes and posttraumatic conditions reduced mobility often is caused by constricted microcirculation due to increased tone of the muscles encasing capillary vessels. DEEP OSCILLATION® is muscle relaxing, enables optimal metabolism and normalizing of defective nerve function. As a measurable sign range of movement can be obtained or even increased.
Anti Inflammatory
DEEP OSCILLATION® suppresses acute and chronic inflammation by restricting pro-inflammatory cell movement to the damaged area, by reducing the inflammatory mediator release, and by inhibiting water and protein leakage from the blood and lymph vessels.
Oedema and Fibrosis Reduction
On the level of the interstitium, DEEP OSCILLATION® causes a »Shuffling« of the basic substance, thus promoting the removal of interstitial fluid as well as content material. Interstitial septa and fissures are kept open by the mechanical activation, which helps interstitial drainage. This significantly reduces both local oedema and aseptic inflammation. Proof was also established of a significant reduction in swellings in the area of the wound, due to the treatment. In chronic conditions the treatment helps to disperse fibrosis and to diminish hardening of the tissue.
Cellulite Treatment:
Oedema Reduction DEEP OSCILLATION® positively affects all cellular and molecular mechanisms of cellulite. It improves blood and lymph flow in the deep skin and subcutaneous layers, diminishes inflammation and oedema The girth of thighs and posterior decreases.
Cellulite treatment:
Rough Fibrous Septae Disruption/Improvement of Skin Elasticity DEEP OSCILLATION® disrupts or prevents the formation of rough fibrous septae and reduces the sensitivity of skin cells to oestrogen hormones. This provides effective treatment of cellulite in 80 % of women. Skin elasticity increases, and fibrosis is reduced.
