  • Deep Oscillation®
    Dana also uses DEEP OSCILLATION®, a massage therapy that works on the effects of creating an intermittent, low frequency electrostatic field (5Hz – 250Hz) in the client’s tissue beneath the applicator or gloved hand, while either is in motion over the skin. It reaches a depth of 8 cm penetrating the entire depth of the tissue layers (skin, connective tissue, subcutaneous fat, muscles, blood and lymph vessels). It can be applied over implanted pins and plates. There is no cause for concern that the therapist or client will electro-statically charge during treatment. The device is fitted with patented circuitry meaning a circuit is never completed.  No heat is used, nor is there any electrical stimulation. This is applied as normal massage through vinyl gloves or applicator.
