Deep Oscillation® massage

Massage involves working the soft tissue of the body, to ease day-to-day stresses and muscular tension, and promote relaxation. It helps to increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the treated areas and can also be used in support of other therapies to assist in the rehabilitation of muscular injuries.

DEEP OSCILLATION® involves massaging the skin using specially designed equipment to create an electrostatic field in the soft tissue it is applied to, potentially helping to address different concerns.

DEEP OSCILLATION® is an electromechanical procedure that uses vibration of the tissue with equipment developed in Germany.

A special design makes it possible, using electrostatic attraction and friction, to produce mechanical vibrations in treated tissues of the body, not only at the skin on the surface but also in deeper tissues.

The frequency can be varied, with the applicator/therapist’s vinyl gloved hands and the patient connected to the equipment. A vinyl film between the applicator, and/or vinyl gloves and the patient, functions as a dielectric (insulator). This results in a weakly conducting capacitative layer between the contact surfaces. In action, pulsed electrostatic attractions draw the tissue to the applicator/gloved hand and release it at the rhythm of the chosen frequency. The therapist sets the pressure gradient, speed and direction of the movements.

The therapy is both relaxing to apply and receive.
