We offer a consultative approach and all treatments are client centered with a thorough programme of advice and aftercare.
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 (skin, connective tissue, muscles, blood and lymph vessels).
The following physiological effects of DEEP OSCILLATION® are clinically proven:
Pre and Postoperative Therapy
With DEEP OSCILLATION®, oedemas and haematomas can be relieved pre and postoperatively considerably faster than with conventional therapies. Because it can be used at an extremely early stage, wound healing is stimulated and accelerated, local inflammation processes are inhibited and pain is significantly reduced over a sustained period. Scar quality is improved.
DEEP OSCILLATION® is therefore frequently used as a routine adjuvant post-operative therapy, for instance in oncology, neurology and traumatology. Due to its very gentle therapeutic effect it is used as a first line therapy for conditions after e.g. mastectomy, caesarean section, osteosynthesis, endoprosthesis etc.
Use of DEEP OSCILLATION® reduces volume in the case of primary and secondary lymphoedema. The therapy is also increasingly used with success for lipoedema. DEEP OSCILLATION® has a preventive and anti-fibrotic effect: incipient fibrosis in particular can be treated effectively. Skin conditions and lymphatic drainage are improved.
Mechanical Traumata and Damage from Overstraining
In the case of traumata and damage from overstraining, DEEP OSCILLATION® has a direct oedema and pain-reducing effect and consecutively stimulates self-mobilisation in pain-relieved areas, thus enabling an early return to active life. For sportspersons it means an earlier commencement of active forms of therapy and training, for ‘normal‘ patients a swifter return to activities in daily life.
Secondary Wound Healing
DEEP OSCILLATION® is being increasingly used for secondary wound healing, regrettably often as a last resort. DEEP OSCILLATION® is an efficient adjuvant treatment option in the case of both post-operative and diabetic wound healing disorders and oedema-induced secondary wound healing.
In the case of second-degree burns wound healing is significantly accelerated and qualitatively improved by DEEP OSCILLATION®.
Chronic Pain Syndromes
In indications such as Fibromyalgia Syndrome, Sudeck's dystrophy etc, which are accompanied by chronic pain, DEEP OSCILLATION® has a strong pain relieving effect, which often allows for a reduction of medicine intake. The treatment promotes mobilisation to a great extent, alleviates muscle stiffness and tackles impairments in activities of daily life, with consequent positive effect on fatigue, fears and depression.
Therapy with Deep Oscillation (DEEP OSCILLATION®) is beneficial within a broad range of applications, including, but not limited to:
What to expect during your treatment
At Advance Lymphatics, we use a portable device from Physiopod UK.
For the treatment, the patient holds a titanium neutral element loosely between the fingers. The pleasant therapy effect of DEEP OSCILLATION® is created beneath the gloves of the therapist or the hand applicator, which is moved in a circular motion above the tissue.
Advance Lymphatics have specialist insurance in place specifically for the use of Deep Oscillation.
Contraindications to Deep Oscillation® Therapy.
Deep Oscillation Therapy is not suitable for:
Manual Lymphatic Drainage also abbreviated to MLD is an advanced specialist therapy using non evasive gentle rhythmic circular movements applied to skin in the direction of lymph flow. It works by stimulation of the Lymphatic vessels, essential for the transportation substances the body needs for its natural defence. Furthermore, it also assists removal of waste products.
At Advance Lymphatics we will assess, treat and recommend a programme of therapy that meets your needs. Whether this is treatment of post operative surgery or treatment of an ongoing condition, we will work diligently with your GP or Aesthetics Surgeon.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is the choice follow up care and works from a preventive and remedial. Aspect key benefits being:
MLD is also a treatment that is used to control lymphedema that may occur after cancer treatment where patients have compromised lymph systems.
Advance Lymphatics are proud to be a Vodder Trained clinic using a method pioneered in the 1930s by Dr Emil Vodder. We are listed as an approved clinic for your peace of mind and have to adhere to strict guidelines and updated training programmes.
Myofascial release is a manual based therapy working to alter the texture tone and restrictions working on the connective tissue it works using a series of precise hand placements and techniques to stretch the tissues to a new range which is why the process is both restorative and visually enhancing.
The benefits of this therapy when applied to post operative recovery are far reaching to include:
As your body exits the initial inflammatory stage, new cell generation and regeneration of collagen begins forming scar tissue. Myofascial release gently reduces hardened fibrotic tissue and improves the general tone of your overall result promoting healing from the inside.
This is particularly effective post liposuction when scar tissue forms from cannula extraction of fat untreated could leave you with a bumpy pitted appearance.
Myofasical taping is the application of hypoallergenic kinesiology tape that works to aid lymphatic waste disperse as the body moves.
It’s applied with zero to minimal stretch causing subtle lifting of the skin providing additional 24 hour therapy under your compression garments. As your body moves through muscular contraction, this promotes a pumping effect expediting waste out of the tissues and out through urination.
The tape is applied immediately after your first MLD session following the flow of lymphatic pathways.
The benefits of this are:
The tape can be worn for many days as the adhesive is activated through body heat. You can take showers with it on and in no way is it restrictive to everyday movement.
