The latest addition to aid Lymphatic Drainage

 It is called Hivamat 200 and this is a device that delivers a patented therapy called Deep Oscillation. Manufactured by a German company Physiomed Elektromedizin, This therapy has been around for 25 years but was only brought into UK in March 2007.  Lymphatic drainage therapist, osteopaths, physiotherapists and Equine Therapists are already using it with great success.

How does Hivamat work?

It complements very well the gentle movement of lymphatic drainage. It delivers mild electrostatic pulses to a depth of 8 -12cm. It breaks apart and shakes up metabolic waste, acids, protein built up and cytokines. It also activates the lymphatic system so the body is able to move out the waste

The beauty of the device is as an MLD therapist I am using the tissue manipulation skills that I have been taught. The only difference is I am applying the method with a pair of vinyl gloves.

Hivamat 200 can aid to:

Reduction of fibrosis after a skin graft of the face
Swollen axillary and inguinal lymph nodes
Breast fibrosis
Secondary leg and arm lymphoedema
Hard, protein build-up after radiotherapy
Sinusitis and headache
Post plastic surgery swelling of the face, abdomen and legs
Puffy eyes

The results are amazing.  All the patients enjoy the light vibrating sensation and the speedy results. Everybody finds it very pleasant, soothing, relaxing and more enjoyable.

Studies

G. Schelder and D. Berg discovered in their study? HIVAMAT 200 supported lymph drainage and shown significant improvements in the pain and disturbances to  the sensitivity of the breast operated; skin alterations; arm movements and  lymphoedema.

Another study by Bartoletti and colleagues in Fandonzione Fatebenefratelli, Roma (2006) showed that treatment with HIVAMAT 200 actually reduced the circumference of limbs that had lymphoedema and decrease the thickness of the subcutis as shown in an ecograph.

It is very safe, very well researched and there is the support of a group of scientists who are always keeping up with their new research.
