myofascial decompression

LymphaTouch is a myofascial decompression therapy device which allows vertical and horizontal stretching of the fascial (connective tissue) structures, expanding the space for circulation of blood and lymph. The results of LymphaTouch therapy are immediately measurable as reduced swelling, reduced pain and improved range of motion.

The LymphaTouch is a myofascial decompression therapy device which stimulates LYMPHATICS and manipulates fascia. It can be used for a range of indications in;

  • Lymphatic therapy
  • Orthopaedics
  • Cosmetic and beauty therapy
  • Physiotherapy, Chiropractor, Osteopathy, Occupational Therapy

Benefits of Myofascial Decompression                                       

For the PATIENT

  • Reduce oedema quickly and effectively
  • Pain free treatment – help reduce pain
  • Break down scar tissue
  • Increase ROM
  • Improve blood flow/collagen production

For the CLINICIAN

  • Reduce pressure on hands and wrists
  • Speed up treatment time
  • Improved objective results
  • Consistent treatment – selected pressures

Why Myofascial Decompression?                                   

  • Lifts and expands the tissue, instead of push and compress
  • Vertical stretching of fascia
  • Provide torsional forces on the tissue by twisting
  • Dilate lymphatic capillaries to encourage lymphatic drainage

Why LymphaTouch?

  • Unique mechanical vibration feature
  • Controlled targeted negative pressure
  • Clinically better results
  • Builds on current practice and knowledge
  • Pain free application
  • Portable
  • Easy to clean and maintain
  • Marketing/training package

Device details:

  • Pulsation of negative pressure
  • Continuous negative pressure
  • Mechanical vibration

The negative pressure is altered from 20-250mmHg and mechanical vibration from 90-20Hz using the user friendly touch screen. The interface is simple and easy to navigate and the application of the device is effortless and comfortable for patient and clinician.

LymphaTouch also features an interactive treatment guide on the device which will guide you through each stage of a treatment, which pressures and techniques to use.

Myofascial Decompression Therapy:

 

Post-Cosmetic/Orthopaedic Surgery

  • Reduce post-operative oedema
  • Increase lymphatic flow to remove waste and speed up healing process
  • Improve wound healing

Lymphoedema

  • Dilates the Lymphatic capillaries to stimulate lymph drainage
  • Improve Head and neck scarring and tightness
  • Reduce impact and appearance scarring following surgeries
  • Improvement movement and function of scarring
  • Reduce fibrotic tissue and reduce limb volume

Treatments are built around the lymphatic drainage pathways and builds on current practice and treatments used in Lymphoedema

Cosmetics

  • Increase Lymphatic flow to reduce swelling and remove toxins from the body
  • Relieve muscular tension with a pain free, relaxing treatment
  • Lift scars to improve appearance and reduce restrictions
  • Improve blood flow to promote healing
  • Reduce stress
  • Improve skin integrity and appearance

MSK

  • Muscle Injury
  • Acute/Chronic Swelling
  • Speed up healing
  • Reduce Pain
  • Increase ROM
  • Complimentary therapy

 

Petra Erving is a specialist bodywork therapist who predominantly works with Lymphoedema patients. Shes uses the targeted negative pressure device, LymphaTouch, to help improve range of movement and reduce swelling, especially on irradiated tissue.

 

Gary Ross is a Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeon in Manchester using the PhysioTouch in a post surgical setting to help reduce swelling.

 

Over the last 18 months, Physiquipe have been working with Dans Fund For Burns (DFFB) who have donated 12 LymphaTouch devices to NHS burn centres and units across the UK. Polly, Founder and Director at DFFB, has done so much for the charity since they established in 2003. After recent laser surgery, Polly has been using the LymphaTouch to help improve the functionality of her scars and has seen an improvement from her recent session and laser surgery.

Justine Asghar is a Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapist who works at the Renovatio Clinic in Cheshire. Justine has been using the LymphaTouch device for the last 6 months on secondary Lymphoedema patients suffering with swelling and discomfort. We spoke to Justine to see how she was getting on with the device and the results she has seen.

Clinical Study

This document summarises study on post – mastectomy secondary lymphoedema of the arm. The
study compares LymphaTouch treatment with Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD). The study was
performed by Kuopio University Hospital in Finland in 2013.

What is myofascial decompression?

It is a form of soft tissue work where a pump is used, along with vacuum cups to provide a suction and placed on the skin to release the fascia and muscle tissue underneath.

Myofascial decompression benefits:

  • Reduces pain
  • Increase blood flow
  • Controlled, intermittent suction can stimulate lymphatic drainage
  • Increases range of motion
  • Aid in the treatment and release of scars

Does myofascial decompression hurt?

Often using myofascial decompression in the form of cups, this can leave bruising and can be uncomfortable, however, it doesn’t have to be. If the pressures are controlled correctly then the treatment does not have to be painful.

However it does come down to the therapist’ school of thought.

LymphaTouch myofascial decompression therapy is designed to be a comfortable treatment.

What consumables are there for LymphaTouch?

The treatment cups for the LymphaTouch must be changed every 100-150 treatments.

The treatment filters are single use only and must be disposed of after every treatment. (1 box = 500 filters)

Is there a servicing package available?

Yes. The servicing and maintenance package is run on a pay-as-you-go basis. It is recommended the LymphaTouch is annually serviced.

Servicing costs included courier service, admin costs and testing of the device.

The device comes with a 2 year warranty with an option to purchase an additional 3 years.

What are the training options?

Physiquipe have built an online training package which are a series of videos taking you through the basic settings, techniques and tips.

There are also example treatment routines which are a great place to start.

We also offer an online ZOOM training session for free.

Any in-house training sessions are typically 2-3 hours and are an additional cost.
