Deep Oscillation therapy is a totally unique form of physical therapy.
It is used by doctors and therapists in hospitals and clinics throughout Europe and America, and is now available in the UK. Therapy is characterised by an intermittent electro-static field, which is built up between the hands of the therapist or an applicator attachment and the soft tissue of the patient, by means of the Hivamat machine. The patient’s tissue is then attracted and released in the selected frequency, which through a unique patented process triggers a deeply penetrating and lasting resonance, (DEEP OSCILLATION) of the treated tissues. What makes this form of therapy unique is that it penetrates much deeper into body tissue than traditional manual methods thus allowing previously 'untreatable' injuries to be manipulated with the minimum of physical pressure. Electrostatic waves create a 'kneading' effect deep within the damaged tissues, restoring flexibility and blood supply to the affected area.
Deep Oscillation helps stimulate local immunity. During treatment inflammation mediators are released, and the body's own local defensive functions increased, therefore the therapy has a highly significant anti-inflammatory effect. It helps to speed up and improve the body’s natural wound-healing processes. The oedema-reducing and anti-inflammatory effects of Hivamat treatments, greatly improve local metabolic elimination and alimentation in all the layers of tissue, thus accelerating tissue renewal and repair.
The Hivamat’s mechanical activation, assists interstitial drainage. In chronic conditions the treatment helps to disperse fibrosis and hardening of the tissue. This significantly accelerates the breakdown of local oedema and inflammation. It helps to quickly and effectively dissolve sticky fascia and hardened tissue, and improves the ability for movement.
Deep Oscillation Therapy has a substantial pain-soothing and de-stressing effect and therefore makes the patient feel fully relaxed and comfortable. It is known for its rapid, muscle-relaxing and pain-relieving effects and for its direct effect against micro-trauma (muscle aches & pains). Hivamat Electrostatic Therapy is a proven way to help you recover your fitness or former mobility in what could be a considerably shorter time than traditional massage.
