Self-management plays an important role in the care of Lymphoedema and Lipoedema in order to reduce and keep swelling and pain to a minimum. Three sufferers have kindly given their accounts of using DEEP OSCILLATION® therapy to maintain their condition between sessions with their MLD therapists. The electrostatic massage system, which permeates an 8cm depth; through skin, subcutaneous fat, muscles, blood and lymph vessels and the connective tissue, is both portable, easy to use and is an effective tool for keeping symptoms maintained.
