Hivamat Deep Tissue Oscillation Therapy
What are the benefits of HIVAMAT Therapy?
- Relieves soft tissue pain
- Reduces swelling and inflammation
- Breaks up excess fibrous tissue
- Improves restricted movement
- Increases oxygen, nutrients, and blood to area treated
- Shortens recovery time from surgery or injury.
HIVAMAT Therapy is a deep oscillation lymphatic massage which speeds recovery after a surgical procedure or injury. It is a unique and highly effective treatment which quickly reduces pain and swelling, minimizes inflammation, encourages rapid tissue healing and increases range of movement. HIVAMAT therapy is an important post surgical protocol for detoxification; it accelerates the healing process by stimulating the lymphatic system and improving the body’s ability to rid itself of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials.
What is the HIVAMAT system?
HIVAMAT (Histological Variable Manual Therapy) is a unique patented therapeutic device used to treat swelling, relieve soft tissue pain and help an injury recover faster. The HIVAMAT system is a patented device engineered and manufactured by PHYSIOMED a German technology company. The system is manufactured under the stringent guidelines and regulations and holds the CE Marking in accordance with Directive 93/42/EEC. ISO 9001 ISO 1348.
HIVAMAT Therapy has been used for over 22 years for the treatment of Lymphedema and soft tissue injuries. When HIVAMAT was first introduced into the United States, it was sold and extensively used for physical therapy clinics, sports rehabilitation, skilled nursing, and professional sports as a treatment for lymphedema and injuries.
Lymphedema is a condition which is similar to the acute swelling which occurs after surgical procedures. In both cases, fluid is not able to be contained within the body’s lymphatic system and it leaches out into the interstitial tissue causing pain, swelling, areas of hardness, and fibrotic scar tissue. HIVAMAT therapy post surgery quickly and effectively addresses these issues and dramatically speeds the recovery process.
How does HIVAMAT work?
The HIVAMAT protocol uses an electrostatic field of attraction and friction to create deep but gentle oscillations in the treated tissue including skin, connective tissue, muscles, blood and lymph vessels. This soft pulsating vibration breaks up metabolic waste that forms in lymphatic collectors and the surrounding interstitial tissue as a result of injury or trauma to the area. So long as the underlying trauma from surgery has not healed, the body continues to produce fluid. HIVAMAT Therapy prevents fluid from building up and thereby speeds the healing process.
