DEEP OSCILLATION® Electrostatic Massage Therapy for Lipoedema

DEEP OSCILLATION®, also known as HIVAMAT 200® therapy, is a gentle, non-invasive, intermittent electrostatic massage treatment from Germany, which is exclusively supplied in the UK and Ireland by PhysioPod® UK Limited

Two Sisters, Julie Soroczyn and Mary Fickling, are the Directors of the Company which was set up in 2006.  They became approved NHS Suppliers in 2012 and in 2014 it became endorsed by The Wittlinger Lymphoedema Clinic and Dr Vodder Academy International.

Now many Private MLD DLT Practitioners and several NHS clinics have added the therapy to their techniques and it is being used more frequently for self-management both at home and post flight; where cabin pressure, gravity and lack of movement can cause lymph fluid to collect in the areas affected, resulting in more pain and swelling.

Why is it different to other electrotherapies?

As opposed to externally applied, mechanical forms of massage therapy (e.g. vibration), DEEP OSCILLATION® is applied via gloved hands and/or hand held applicators (the applicators enable self-management).  As the massage begins, or circular movement with applicators, biologically effective oscillations are created in the tissue segment undergoing treatment, attracting and releasing the tissue up to 250 times a second. Only gentle, minimal pressure is required for the therapy to work through the entire tissue layers (including the connective tissue to a depth of 8cm (Hernandez Tapanes S., et al 2010) Value of DEEP OSCILLATION® in the healing of AB Burns.

DEEP OSCILLATION® also helps with pain and inflammation, swelling, fibrosis and bruising. If you are interested to read the study references please check at

For individuals who achieve a successful treatment outcome in their NHS Clinic or with their Private Practitioner, then joint collaboration between parties enables a bespoke therapy card to be created for use in a DEEP OSCILLATION® Personal Sports or a DEEP OSCILLATION® Personal Aesthetics and can be used for daily maintenance of symptoms. 

The Sports version is a handy household unit in which to invest; as it contains many common sporting conditions but also has pre-programmed protocols for Arthritis, Fibromylagia, Osteosynthesis (implanted pins and plates), Scar Tissue and Fibrosis, Tennis Elbow and Traumatic Pain.  The Aesthetics version is helpful if individuals are planning on having liposuction, any type of plastic surgery or for natural anti-aging purposes.  PhysioPod® can give guidance on the best unit for the individual.
